Sixers Beat Pistons 83-82

Wednesday, March 12, 2008 ·

1st round playoff preview? Tonight the Sixers traveled to Detroit and defeated the Pistons 83-82 in a defensive battle, even while not scoring in the final 2:27. The Sixers shot only 40%, but used 14 offensive rebounds to get second-chance points. The Sixers also had 9 steals and only turned the ball over 6 times compared to 13 times by the Pistons.

Andre Iguodala led all scored with 22 points on 6-22 shooting (27%), but he shot 9-12 from the line. Four other Sixers were in double figures, including Reggie Evans who had 12 points and 11 rebounds. Samuel Dalembert had 15 rebounds.

Tonight was a huge win for the Sixers' confidence after they fell to Boston at home. Currently, the Sixers are slated to face the Pistons in a 2-7 match-up in the first round of the playoffs. Tonight, the Sixers played without Willie Green for the entire game and Andre Miller for a better part of the fourth quarter, because he re-aggravated a lower back contusion.


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.
