Phils/Sixers Updates

9:01 - Sixers go up 77-55 on Allen Iverson's 29th and 30th points of the night. He also has 8 assists. What a night for the Sixers!

8:58- With 2 outs in the inning, Brian McCann knocks a home run to right-center, making it 4-2 and Wilson Betemit rips a double down the line over Howard. Braves are back in this game. Pinch-hitter Pete Orr rips a triple to left-center now, and this is getting frustrating. The crowd is back into the game, the Braves bench is up and going, and Lidle is hanging pitches over the plate. It's now 4-3 but he gets out of it.

8:47 - Rollins and Sosa battle it out with a double-digit pitch atbat, but Rollins finally flies out to left field, but Rollins is still on a very hot hitting streak. He's 8-19 since his hitting streak was broken. Phils up 4-1 with LaRoche, Francoeur (who is looking TERRIBLE at the plate), and McCann due up in the bottom of the 4th.

8:45 - The Sixers are up by 21 at halftime, scoring 67 points and holding the Nets to 46. Iverson has a very quiet 22 points and 7 assists, Webber has his usual first half of 12 pts and 6 boards, and Green, Hunter and Korver combine for 21 bench points on 8-15 shooting. Great game thus far, keep it up.

8:41 - Bottom of the 3rd, and Cory Lidle is trying to pitch himself out of a jam, freezing Ryan Langerhans on a 3-2 count with a high curveball which was possibly a ball. 2 outs and 2 on with Andruw Jones. He isn't bothering with that thing called the strike zone, throwing two balls not even close to the plate. However, Andruw Jones swings so hard at the third pitch he falls down but pops it up in foul play and Bell ends the inning. David Bell, you and your glorious mullet get a reprieve.

8:35 - Iverson to the line as the Sixers go up 57-42 with only 1:50 left in the game. Willie Green, Stephen Hunter and Kyle Korver are having efficient nights off the bench. This team is developing a bench????

8:32pm - With 2:53 left in the 2nd quarter, Webber decides to play his heart out, misses 3 putbacks while trying to put a ball into the net, but finally gets a ball blocked by Nachbar that is called a goaltend. Webber now has 10 points and the Sixers are up 56-38. The Sixers are up in every offensive and defensive category.
