Three months later, the Sixers will finally set foot on the floor of the
Wells Fargo Center again. The last time they played here, Jrue Holiday stuck a three in Dwyane Wade's eye to start a fourth quarter rally that was capped by Lou Williams three to seal the win in game 4 of the first round of the playoffs. Tonight, they get the Pistons.
Well, here we are, folks. Home opener with a 3-2 road record already under their belts and a boatload of momentum to carry into it. The new owners have done everything short of improving the roster to drum up interest in the team, now all that's left is to play the basketball game.
The tip is at 7pm. This is your game thread. Join me if you like watching Jrue take the game over in the fourth quarter, and don't forget, immediately following the game, Derek Bodner and I will host a live episode of SixersBeat, so tune in and call in to talk to us about the game.
Prediction: PHI 100, DET 76, blowout city.
