Doug Collins said the biggest change in his team came when Thaddeus Young devoted himself to defense. The 76ers came into the game Tuesday against the Sacramento Kings leading the NBA in scoring defense, allowing 86.5 points per game; opponent field goal percentage at 39.1 percent; and opponent 3-point field goal percentage at 26.9 percent. Young has spearheaded all of it. He comes in off the bench and terrorizes opponents defensively. Young took four charges Monday in the Sixers' 96-86 win over Indiana, and according to Collins, also had five defelections.
