|The Sixers will lug their monstrous two-game winning jag into Detroit tonight to face a reborn Pistons squad, sporting a three-gamer of their own. Since the Pistons inserted Andre Drummond into the starting lineup, they've won 50% of their games (4-4), and they're fresh off thumping the mighty Cavs on Friday. Only one streak will survive.|
Latest comment: from AnnagayHighly energetic blog, I liked that a lot. Will there be a part 2?...
|Jrue, Evan, Thad...JET? Eh, I'm not sold, but let's run with it for today. Those three guys all showed up last night, and the Sixers needed every last bit from them in their battle against the Pistons and their merciless parade to the foul line.|
|When the Sixers first met the Pistons, they were a helpless 0-8 on the season with more questions than answers. Rudderless, perhaps. On that night, nearly a month ago, the Sixers came out lifeless and got their doors blown off. Tonight, they will attempt to exact their revenge against a much more cohesive Detroit unit.|
|If I told you Jrue only turned the ball over one time and went to the line nine times, how much would you guess the Sixers won by? 10? 20? In allowing the Detroit Pistons to pick up their first win of the season, the Sixers demonstrated exactly how badly they need Andrew Bynum. The Sixer bigs were an embarrassment last night, and the fact their performance stood out to me when the entire team shot 29% from the floor says something.|
|Well, the Sixers who suited up got their behinds kicked in the most meaningful, meaningless game of the season. The Sixers locked up the #8 seed and will head to Chicago to take on the Chicago Bulls on Saturday. (game capsule)|

|It's always a challenge to find the picture to put atop a recap post, tonight I decided to go with the angriest rich guy in Detroit, Pistons owner Tom Gores. He looks like I felt at the end of previous five Sixers games. Not tonight, though. For one night, at least, the Sixers looked like a powerhouse again in a demonstrative win. (game capsule).|
|The Sixers impressed tonight with their play, to be sure, but what was perhaps more impressive was their energy. On the second night of a back-to-back, against a bad team, with a series of games against strong teams on the horizon, the Sixers showed a relentless focus and put the Pistons away for their 14th win of the season. (game capsule).|
Latest comment: from Byron KringelRight here is the sort of information I have been searching for. Thank you for posting this information....
|If you can manage to avoid distraction by the new mascot, the Broadway-inspired lighting, the Sixers of yore in attendance, the dollar dogs, the discounted tickets, the new national anthem singer and free rally towels, Adam Aron and Co. will have something else to wow you later tonight, an actual basketball game. Yes, the Sixers are finally home. (Tune in after the game for a special episode of SixersBeat)|
Latest comment: from Dollar BillThanks. Was thinkin' Richard, Roy, George... everyone but Al of Salt Lake, a career 50% shooter & defender....
|There's absolutely no reason to be up in arms about tonight's loss the Detroit Pistons. The game was meaningless, and Doug Collins pretty much treated as such. There was very little to be gained from this game heading in, and he probably came out with more than he thought he'd get.|
