Originally uploaded by brianudyard4333.

The Sixers are looking for their 5th win in a row tonight against the Miami Heat. It will be a good matchup because Shaquille O'neal is playing in his third game after his ankle injury. Chris Webber, who scored 27 points and grabbed 21 rebounds against the Timberwolves the other night, will be expected to help slow down Shaq in the post. It was the 9th time in his career that C-Webb had 20 plus points and rebounds in the same game. Another key matchup tonight will take place between perennial All-Stars Dwayne Wade and Allen Iverson. Their jerseys are currently the top two selling jerseys.

The NBA has just recently announced that the Sixers will be holding their training camp abroad next season. The Sixers are one of four NBA teams that will be in Europe. The teams will play against eachother, and also matchup with some prominent European teams. For more on this news, please check out the following link:

Kyle's hot shooting the past two games helps compliment the the scoring of Allen and Chris Webber. The Sixers will take on the Minnesota Timberwolves on Monday night at the Wachovia Center at 7 pm.

Sixers Struggling, but Remain in First Place in the Atlantic Division

The Sixers lost all three games on their recent road trip. They suffered losses to Boston, New Orleans-Oklahoma City, and the defending World Champion San Antonio Spurs last night. The Sixers have looked weary, as this was the third time they have played 4 games in 5 nights this season.

The Sixers return home to play the Milwaukee Bucks for the third time this season on Wednesday night. Hopefully the Sixers will be able to improve on their 8-10 record.

Sixers Coach Maurice Cheeks was named by Sports Illustrated to be the 9th best point guard of all time, and Allen Iverson was ranked number 2 of active point guards.

Sixers defeat Portland, look to make it 2 in a row in Boston Tonight

Last evening , the 76ers defeating the Portland Trail Blazers rather easily. Unlike the previous two games, the Sixers were able to hold on to their large first half lead, and cruise to the victory. The Sixers, who have been struggling mightily defensively, and on the boards, were able to hold the Blazers well below their points per game average, and also were able to grab 30 more rebounds than the Blazers.

The Sixers were paced by Allen Iverson's 38 points and 8 rebounds. Chris Webber also contributed with another double-double of 16 points, 15 rebounds. All in all, the Sixers looked much better defensively, and hopefully they can continue this tonight in Boston.

We will see, go Sixers!

Yesterday, at Madison Square Garden in New York City, the Sixers lost an overtime thriller to the Knicks. In the first half, the Sixers had as much as a 18 point lead over the Knicks. The Knicks made a run in the third quarter and eventually had the lead for most of the second half.

The Sixers were able to send the game into overtime, after Chris Webber tipped in Allen Iverson's miss at the buzzer. In overtime, Allen Iverson hit a three pointer with 6 seconds remaining. The Knicks pushed the ball up the court, and eventually Nate Robinson was able to make a prayer three pointer from the corner to give the Knicks the victory.

The Sixers currently have a 7-7 record and are in first place in the Atlantic Division. On Tuesday, the Sixers will take on Maurice Cheeks former team, the Portland Trail Blazers.

After starting off with 3 straight losses to begin the season, the Sixers have finally stepped up their defense, and currently have a 4 game winning streak. During the streak, the Sixers have defeated the Pacers, Mavericks, Lakers, and Clippers. Andre Igoudala had a great game against Kobe Bryant, and was able to hold him to 17 points below his seasons average. The last three wins have been in Philadelphia, and the Sixers will look to sweep the homestand by defeating the Toronto Raptors Tuesday night. The first 5000 fans under 12 that attend the game will receive a replica Maurice Cheeks jersey. Below is a link to the other promotions being offered this season:

After the first seven games of the season, Allen Iverson is averaging 30.1 pts per game and 7.9 assists per game. Both these stats put him in the top 10 in both respective categories. Chris Webber is averaging a solid 19.3 points per game, as well as 9.3 rebounds per game. If he can manage to stay healthy, the Sixers should definitely improve on their record last season.
