Sixers Drop Third Straight


The Sixers lost to the Mavs tonight 97-94. Monta Ellis got to the basket whenever he wanted, Shawn Marion can still dunk and Evan Turner lost his shit at a critical time, getting hit with a technical foul late in the fourth quarter.

The Sixers led up until the end of the third quarter, before the Mavs’ onslaught of turnovers…I’m not really sure how they lost actually. The Mavs shot better, but turned the ball over constantly. Turner led the Sixers with 24.

The Mavs got 24 from Monta Ellis who scored 19 in the second half. Shawn Marion and Dirk Nowitzki chipped in 20 each to keep Mark Cuban happy.

The loss drops the Sixers to 5-7 on the season. The highlight of the night, for me, was watching Sammy Dalembert swat a Spencer Hawes shot. It was an allegory for mediocre center play. Also, does anyone else absolutely hate Vince Carter?
