Add this to the lengthy list of reasons why the Sixers dropped Game 5 of the Eastern Conference semifinals, 101-85, in Boston Monday: They had trouble hearing each other on the court.

That, at least, according to Andre Iguodala.

"Our offense was stagnant," he said. "I don't think we did as good a job as we could have working together. And then their crowd gets into it. They get loud. Then we we can't relay the plays from the backcourt to each other. So we've got to do a better job of seeing each other and not just listening for the call but seeing the call, and just sticking together, staying confident and not getting rattled."

Said Doug Collins: "I don't know. What I try to do is get the call to one of our guys and have him relay that to our team. And so we've got to do a better job with that."
On whether there was a specific problem in Boston, Collins said, "I have no idea," before playfully making a reference to the way football quarterbacks receive plays. "Maybe the headset was off."
