|Another Western Conference powerhouse heads into the WFC tonight. The Spurs, much like the Lakers, have been dreadful on the road, but also like the Lakers, they have a bevy of big men who will test the Sixers weakened front court. Will Philly be able to figure out a way to keep the Spurs bigs off the offensive glass, or at least be able to compensate for the deficit again?|
|Allen Iverson has dominated by Sixers bandwidth for the past 36 hours or so, tonight's game against the Spurs will absolutely be a welcome distraction. Preview after the jump.|
|That calm, proud feeling you've been overcome with for the past hour or so doesn't happen often, so enjoy it. A feeling like this only comes from a perfect game from your beloved team, against a powerhouse, that results in a blowout.|

|Some people are calling the two-point loss in San Antonio the beginning of the Sixers' turnaround. It would be a shame to see it brought to a screeching halt when the Spurs come to the Wach tonight.|
|This game left me speechless. It's taken me about 7 hours to be able to sit down and write this. The irony is this may have been the best game the Sixers have played all season.

|I'm not sure if even a win will salvage the trip. Can you really be happy with a 2-4 finish? I guess under the circumstances, it would be night and day better than the alternative. Had things broken their way, the Sixers would be 2-3 on the trip right now. That game in Denver should've been a win. They've strung together at least a couple of quarters of solid basketball in all six games, but they only came away with the win they should've had. Looking at the schedule before the trip, it screamed 1-5, tonight is their last chance to defy expectations, but I just don't see it happening.|
|It's late, NBA.com decided to wait over three hours after the game ended to make the archive available, so I'm going to keep this one short and sweet. If you aren't impressed by a 103-96 win over the San Antonio...|
|The first three and a half quarters of this game was, without a doubt, the best 43 minutes of defensive basketball the Sixers have played all year long. The Spurs were 3/21 from three, the Sixers were so quick in...|
