Sixers Win In OT


The Sixers overcame a late deficit to defeat the Bucks 115-107. When they win they sure as hell are exciting.




The Sixers are officially on a losing streak, and the Bucks want to extend it. They represent to Sixers fans what a pretty ordinary team that makes the playoffs every year, but really can’t improve is. The Bucks are why NBA teams tank. They are purgatory, not in it, they represent it. They compete for the eighth seed year in and year out, they get a mid-round pick and a mostly empty arena as a reward. No one wants to be them, ever.

Thaddeus Young will miss his second straight game. The Sixers also have released Darius Miles and Kwame Brown.

The Bucks
PG Luke Ridnour
SG O.J. Mayo
SF Caron Butler
PF Ekpe Udoh
C Zaza Pachulia
