At Least One of Our Teams Playing Today Takes Care of Business and Has Heart

Well...smile...the Sixers won 89-81 over the visiting Warriors at the Wach tonight. It is their fifth in the last six games, putting their record at 7-6. Forget about the "Beagles." This post is about the boys in white,black,blue and red. They play hard. They play together. Their coach has control of them. It is not like the freaking Eagles. But, we won't even talk about them.

Elton Brand led the way with 23 points and 12 rebounds. On my back from the Flyers game last night, I was tuning into Sports Radio 610 WIP and everyone was saying on the G. Cobb show how Brand was "damaged goods." Are you kidding me? What have you guys been watching? He may not be as explosive anymore, but he is still a solid scorer and rebounder. The Sixers would not be 7-6 without him. They would be much worse. Do not expect him to be like Allen Iverson. There will never be another Iverson. Expect him to average 15-20 points a game with at least 10 rebounds.

Thaddeus Young had another good game tonight and the bench, between Lou Williams, Willie Green and Marreese Speights, was solid as well. 

From what it looks like, the Sixers are starting to pick it up. Hopefully they can keep it going and move their way up in the standings. 

The Sixers next game is tomorrow against Larry Brown's Charlottle Bobcats in Charlotte at 7 p.m.
