|The Sixers will go for a season sweep against Charlotte tonight. Their third game this season against the Bobcats, and second in the past four days, sees the Sixers up against a tough scheduling quirk, which is not an unfamiliar feeling.|
|Either the Sixers are beginning to figure this whole close game thing out, or the law of averages is doing its work. Either way, the Sixers picked up another close win over a bad team and somehow claimed a stranglehold on the coveted #7 seed in the Eastern Conference (by percentage points over Indy).|
|After last night's tragic collapse, it would've been easy for the Sixers to hang their heads. It would've been easy to come back home tonight, look at the half-empty WFC, put their tail between their legs and let a physical Charlotte Bobcats team have their way with them. Sleepwalk through the game, then rest up in their own beds before continuing the home stand on Tuesday. This Sixers group, however, never seems to take the easy way out.|
|This was the type of game where you hock your TV and put all the money on the Bobcats. If you didn't know the Sixers were going to get their doors blown off, you haven't been paying attention the past five months or so.|
Latest comment: from JoeI stopped reading at Bargnani. Ridiculous that you actually think that....
|Take one team, with nothing at all to play for, on the second night of a back-to-back, with injury problems and questionable effort. Make them play on the road against a relatively well-rested, physical, defensive team, coached by Larry Brown fighting for playoff seeding, and well, this just simply isn't going to be pretty. Preview and game thread after the jump.|
