Getting Ready for the Playoffs?

Tuesday, March 25, 2008 ·

Face it, the 76ers are one of the hottest teams in basketball. Since February 5th, the Sixers are now 18-5 after impressive come-from-behind victory over the Boston Celtics, 95-90, in the Garden. Down 80-69 in the fourth-quarter, Andre Iguodala scored 10 straight points to pace a Sixers 19-0 run to take the lead and the Sixers never looked back. The Sixers defense was stout in the fourth quarter and they held Boston's "big 3" to only 5 points in the fourth quarter on 29% shooting.

"It's huge when you come in here and win a game like this against Boston, it does a lot for us,'' coach Maurice Cheeks said. "We still have a long way to go. This is just one step to try and get to where we want to be.''
The win moved them to 36-35, over .500 this late in the season for the first time since 2004-2005, which was the last time they made the playoffs. The Sixers are now in the sixth playoff spot and a game back of the Raptors for the fifth seed.

During the Sixers' hot stretch, it is not like they have beat up on the bottom feeders of the NBA. They've had wins over Washington, Dallas, Orlando, Phoenix, Detroit, San Antonio, Denver, and Boston. More importantly, they've also beat the teams battling for playoff position with them. Your Philadelphia basketball team is hot, start watching them.

A small introduction...

We Hate to Lose began in October 2007. The initial purpose of the website was to provide news updates and commentary on all four major sports teams in Philadelphia. Because of time-constraints, in April of 2009, I decided to post only on my first-love, the Philadelphia Phillies.

My name is Justin Evans and I hope you enjoy the site.
