Andre and Andre

With Thaddeus Young sidelined with an injury, the 76ers collectively stepped up their game and won their 7th of last 8 games in the Wachovia Center, beating the Pistons 95-90. The Sixers trailed by as much as 12 points in this game, but outscored the Pistons by 11 points in the 4th quarter to seal the victory. In my last post, I stated that we needed our bench to step up because of the injury, but most importantly need Miller and Iggy have to control the game. The Sixers did exactly this and Andre “The Maestro” Miller dropped a triple double, 21-12-10, on Saturday afternoon and continued his destruction of opposing defenses. I feel that Miller does not get the credit he deserves from the media because he may not be flashy or “media friendly”, but he gets the job done. He may not have the prettiest jump shot in the world or be lighting fast, but he is one of the smartest point guards in the game and knows how to control a game. Our other Andre, Iggy, is playing phenomenal basketball scoring at will, like a fraternity brother on Spring Break. He has been averaging 24.4 points over the last 5 games and had a season high, 31 against Detroit. Iggy played the whole second half and Coach DiLeo left him in because with this win the Sixers locked up an Eastern Conference playoff spot. The 76ers now have a 3 game road trip starting tomorrow night in Jersey and this trip is going to test our team’s will and toughness, but if we keep playing with the same intensity I do not see us slipping from the 5 spot.
