Default Re: Sixers' preseason-opening lineup offers plenty of questions

Spain - It began the same way Spencer Hawes' six previous preseason openers had begun.

The 76ers center was an offensive liability and - like most of his teammates - he was getting outhustled for the loose ball. But he is also the reason the Sixers defeated Bilbao Basket, 106-104, Sunday in an exhibition game at Bizkaia Arena at the Bilbao Exhibition Centre.

The 7-foot-1, 245-pounder hit a pair of foul shots that gave his team a two-point cushion with 4.89 seconds remaining. Bilbao's Raul Lopez, a former NBA guard, missed a three-pointer at the buzzer.
