Flyers On A Rolll and Sixers Continue To Leave You Scratching Your Heads

What a day in Philly–the Andy Reid/Donovan McNabb crap continues and our two indoor teams had games tonight. The Flyers won at the Wach 4-3 over the Dallas Stars and the Sixers lost at Charlotte to the Bobcats 93-84. 

Mike Knuble scored twice for the Flyers, including the goal that put the Flyers ahead for good. I was there and will post some pictures from the game either later tonight or probably tomorrow morning. Jeff Carter was masterful by scoring his 15th goal on the season and Mike Richards made one heck of a play to set up Knuble on the Flyers 4th goal. The Orange and Black are 6-0-1 in their last seven games. Oh...and by the way...my lifetime record of going to Flyers games improved to 7-1 (knock on wood). 

As far as the Sixers go, Elton Brand and Andre Iguodala had good games with good shooting percentages and Willie Green did well off the bench, but everyone else struggled. The Sixers shot a combined 39.5 percent from the floor, while the Bobcats shot 54.8 percent. Also, Raymond Felton and D.J. Augustin both were 8-11 from the floor with Felton having 23 points and Augustin 25.

It is great to see the Flyers on a roll, while it is pretty frustrating to see the Sixers be so inconsistent. When you think they are turning it around and possibly going to start putting a nice collection of wins together, they lose to a team that came into the game 3-9. Not acceptable. But, I will continue to give this team time to gel and hopefully by the end of December they will be starting to click on all cylinders. 

The Flyers next game is Wednesday at 7 p.m. at the Carolina Hurricanes, while the Sixers play on Wednesday as well, at home against the Orlando Magic at 7:30 p.m.
