Flyers Remain On Fireeeeee...But Sixers Drop A Tough One

It seems as though the Flyers and Sixers have been playing on the same nights a lot lately. It is pretty cool, but annoying because you have to pick one to follow. Regardless, they still happen and as far as tonight went, the Flyers won in Carolina over the Hurricanses 3-1 to win their sixth in a row and go 7-0-1 in their last eight games. Simon Gagne scored twice and had an assist. The Sixers dropped a heartbreaker to the visiting Orlando Magic 98-96 on a closing seconds three pointer by Rashard Lewis. The 76ers were down big early, came back and took the lead in the third quarter, maintained it a little through the fourth but could not hold on. 

It has basically been the same thing with these teams over the past week or so. I am not going to talk about who played well for the Sixers. It was basically the same guys, with an additional spark plug from Marreese Speights off the bench. Still, this team is now 7-8 and very inconsistent. Sure, we need to give them time to gel, but they need to figure out how to continuously win rather than win a game then lose a game or win a couple then lose a couple.

As far as the Orange and Black go, I am not going to say anything more. I do not want to jinx anything. Keep it up boys.

Flyers next game is Friday at home against the Carolina Hurricanes at 1 p.m. in the back half of a home and home and the Sixers next game is also Friday, in Boston against the Celtics at 7:30 p.m. A win against them would be awesome.
