The Sixers ended a ridiculous two game skid by defeating the Indiana Pacers tonight at home 99-94.
On the day when we find out what it is like to take $80 million dollars and flush it down a toilet fool of crap, Andre Iguodala drops 20 points, along with dishing out 11 assists and collecting eight rebounds.
That's right. Iggy was two boards from a triple-double. Ike Reese is right. Hate him or like him, the man fills up the stat sheet. He may not have a jump shot, but he produces.
Another spot to smile about tonight's game is the play of Samuel Dalembert. Yes...the same Samuel Dalembert who I deemed my least favorite current 76er.
Sammy Slamin' D finished with 18 points and an impressive 20 rebounds. Not to mention, he had the highest plus/minus on the team tonight with a plus 27.
Andre Miller and Willie Green also had big nights.
Something to cringe about tonight's game, other than the absence of Elton Brand, is the play of the bench. It was not very productive and Marreese Speights had trouble getting on the floor for the second game in a row.
Did he do something wrong? Can someone explain to me why his minutes have all of sudden dropped faster than our ailing economy?
With Brand out, Speights should be getting more minutes. And when I say more minutes, I mean more minutes than the amount he has been getting before this game and the Boston game.
Anyway, that is all the thoughts I have on tonight's W. The guys are back at .500 with a record of 24-24. Hopefully they can beat the Heat Saturday night and close the gap that stands between them at sixth and seventh in the conference standings.
