|Mike was at the Wach last night to witness first-hand the mugging of Andre Iguodala, the A.I. chants that may lead to a huge setback for the franchise and oh yeah, the Sixers 11th loss of the season. His first-person report is after the jump.|
|Well, they weren't blown out, they showed several sparks in different areas of the game (mostly in the first half), but they just didn't have enough firepower to overcome the Hawks tonight at the Wach. That makes five losses in a row, and the schedule doesn't exactly get easier from here.|
|For what I believe is the first time this season, the schedule will actually make a tough game a little bit easier for the Sixers later tonight. The Hawks played last night against the Magic, the Sixers had Thanksgiving off. The Sixers are also at home. It's a small advantage, maybe worth a point or two on the spread, but still, it's something and they're going to need any edge they can get their hands on against the Hawks.|

|I have good news and bad news. Bad first, the Heat used a 30-point fourth quarter in Charlotte to put the Bobcats away, picking up a half game on the Sixers in the process. The good, well, don't look now but the Sixers are only 2 games behind the Hawks in the loss column after the Celts took care of Atlanta.|
|First of all, thanks to Dean for hooking us up with tickets for tonight's game. It was great to meet everyone (Dean, Tray, Mike, Josh, Noah, Rob and Tom Moore). The game itself was heartening, for several reasons we'll get into after the jump. The win was huge. But seeing Thad Young helped off the court was just sickening.|
|In a season full of surprising wins, we find ourselves needing a few more as the Sixers head into the final 10 games of the season. Tonight's game, against Atlanta, needs to be the first.|
Latest comment: from JohnIt would also be a mistake - of the coaching variety - but would not be surprising...
|Let's face facts, the number 4 seed is a long shot. That's not the home court advantage I'm talking about right now. I'm talking about a HUGE three-game homestand and how we, the fans, can do our part to lift this team up. It hasn't happened often this season, but with games against Atlanta, Milwaukee and Detroit coinciding with a three-game road trip for Miami, this team needs any edge it can get. So how about this, how about the guys on this blog do everything we can tomorrow night against Atlanta. So far, I count 6 of us who will be in attendance. Here's the great news, Dean has two more tickets, so if you want to join us, it won't cost you a dime.|
|A quick public service announcement. Dean H (officially known as Commenter Of The Season from here on out), scored 4 tickets to Tuesday's game against the Hawks. He's been kind enough to invite myself and my brother and now we're going to open it up to you guys to fill the final seat.|

|The fourth win of four straight turned out to be the most impressive of the group. On the road, in Atlanta in front of hundreds of rabid Hawks fans, the Sixers took it to a 22-13 team and never let up. The Sixers put forth maximum effort for 48 minutes and literally ran the Hawks right out of their own gym.|
|Today's Sixers/Hawks game isn't going to be about how good the Sixers are. It isn't going to be about Philly trying to prove something on the road, beat a playoff-bound team at full strength. It's going to be about what this Atlanta team is made of.|
Latest comment: from PeterPatrelliAs the best president in my life time has said "What's Next?"...and that's kind of how i look at it :)...
|This one bothers me. The opening night loss you can chalk up to jitters, I guess. Tonight, you could make the excuse that it was the second night of a back-to-back, on the road, against a well-rested team in their...|
|Let's call this one a let down and move on. There's plenty of blame to go around for the Sixers 92-85 loss to Atlanta tonight, and no you can't really point the finger directly at Willie Green. Only Iguodala had...|
|So let's not discuss the final three quarters of the Sixers 96-91 loss to the Hawks in Atlanta tonight.Instead, I'll give you a glimpse into the notes I took during the game, in their raw form:Thad is starting again!!!Steve Smith...|
