The Sixers and Flyers both dropped games last night with the Sixers doing so in Denver and the Flyers in Chicago.
Both were very disappointing.
A. The 76ers had a large lead in the third quarter and dropped off as the game neared its conclusion. It was almost an exact replica of the Indiana game last week. The Sixers had the lead with few seconds remaining and then the Nuggets gained it back right away. This time, instead of a jumper in Andre Inguodala's face, it was a nasty slam dunk on Samuel Dalembert's head. Then, Iguodala had the ball at the end to try and win it (like the Indiana game) and traveled. The Sixers fouled Chucky Atkins and then Andre Miller got called for a technical foul because he walked in front of Atkins before the first foul shot and the referees though Miller was taunting Atkins. Final score: 105-101.
B. The Flyers just got man handled 5-1.
However, they can redeem themselves in about 40 minutes out in Columbus against the Blue Jackets.
Get it down boys!
