While Sixers coach Doug Collins contemplates what to do with his backcourt, he also has to figure out how to use center Spencer Hawes.

Hawes, the fifth-year seven-footer, would seem to be an important piece for the Sixers in the series against the Bulls since rebounding and solid midrange shooting will be so important. However, when it came to getting Hawes off the bench in Game 1 of the series on Saturday, Hawes did more sitting than anything else.

Hawes played just 15 minutes with only 10 of those minutes coming when the game still hung in the balance. He made just two shots and had four rebounds and didn't have much influence on the outcome at all.
