Sixers/Heat Game Is The Season

The Sixers are tied with the Chicago Bulls for the 8th spot in the playoffs, with 4 games to play. This means that they would be out of the playoffs if they started today, since the Bulls, Pacers and Bucks all have a better conference record than the Sixers. This means the Sixers will have to go 3-1 to have a legit shot at the right to lose to the Pistons, and will probably have to go 4-0 if they plan to outpace the Chicago Bulls, who have very winnable games against the Washington Wizards, the Orlando Magic(who granted are ending the season strong with the youth movement), and the Toronto Raptors. They also play Miami away, so if the Sixers are able to beat the Heat, who says the Bulls couldn't?

Right now, the Sixers MUST win tonight, and then make sure to show up tomorrow against the aforementioned Magic. This falls to Allen Iverson, who must continue his tremendous play and get his teammates involved, while scoring efficiently. They are fighting for their metaphorical lives, and we will find out if they want to live. If they miss the playoffs, someone's head must roll, and hopefully it will fall to the 'mastermind' himself, Billy King. 4 coaches, multiple different lineups, and the only one that sort of worked has been Jim O'Brien's spacing defense and 3-point offense.

Game on.

Oh yeah, and the Phils play tonight too, at 9. They'll win.
