The Sixers played a tight game against the Raptors tonight for the first 2.5 quarters, then went ice cold from the floor, staged a comeback, and fell short. The final was 94–85. After trailing by 16 early in the fourth, the Sixers battled back to make it a 6–point game before they ran out of gas.
The Sixers remain 1 game behind the Knicks in the race for bragging rights. The Knicks lost at home to the T-Wolves. Apparently, Isiah has decided to tank the season so Chicago can get a better lottery pick, just to put the exclamation point on the Fat Eddy trade.
Iguodala was great. Willie Green was not. Joe Smith came back and did what he always does, contribute off the bench. The Sixers were horrible from the free-throw line, again. That’s pretty much all I have to say about the Sixers.
As for the Raptors, a couple alarming things. Keep in mind that I’m talking about this game only. Chris Bosch was loathe to go inside, T.J. Ford didn’t impress at all, they didn’t run and they relied WAY too much on the jump shot. Maybe it was just an off night, but they didn’t impress me at all, and if this is indicative of their team, they’re in for an early exit. The Sixers could’ve won this game had they not gone almost 7 minutes without a field goal from the third quarter to the fourth.
The player of the game is Iguodala: 20 points (6–12 from the floor), 7 boards, 7 assists, 1 steal, 1 block.
