Sixers-Pistons Game 2 Preview

Wednesday, April 23, 2008 ·

When: 7:30 on Comcast Sportsnet
Where: The Palace of Auburn Hills

After pulling out a stunning comeback victory in game 1, the Sixers are going to have their hands full again when they try to go up 2-0 in the best of 7 series. In game 1, the Sixers out-rebounded the Pistons 45-43 and held Detroit to 39% shooting. The Sixers will need Willie Green to shine again and for Reggie Evans to do what he's done all year on the boards.

I expect Samuel Dalembert to have a better game offensively and that will be a big if he can get Rasheed Wallace into early foul trouble. The Sixers are going to also need to improve their free-throw shooting. Hovering around 70% is going to hurt them in the playoffs.

My bold prediction: Detroit wins 91-82


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.
