No player better epitomizes the 76ers than reserve forward Thaddeus Young. He's fast, scrappy, and hardworking. And through the first two games of this series - both Miami victories - Young was a crucial piece of the team's offense. He scored 20 points in Game 1 and 18 in Game 2. "It stunned us," Heat coach Erik Spoelstra said of Young's speed before Wednesday's Game 5 at AmericanAirlines Arena. "And since then we've made an adjustment on him, but he's going to keep on coming so we have to bring it." In Games 3 and 4, Young scored only six points combined on 2-for-12 shooting from the floor. Is Young OK with this diminished offensive role? "It's OK, but I have to find some type of way to get myself more involved into the games," Young said. "I've been trying to, but when I see two or three guys I'm not going to try to beat a double team; so I just pass out."
