Sixers Collapse in Hotlanta

Sunday, November 2, 2008 ·

Last night, the Sixers opened up a 23 point lead at one point, only to fall in Atlanta 95-88. Early in the game, the Sixers play well defensively and took care of the ball, creating easy looks for Elton Brand and Thaddeus Young. However, around the middle of the second quarter, the wheels started falling off and while the Sixers continued to force turnovers, they would either miss their shots or turn the ball over themselve.

After scoring 34 points in the opening quarter, the Sixers were only able to score 54 the rest way, including being outscored 29-13 in the fourth. Maybe it was because it was the back-end of game on consecutive nights, but the Sixers lost their edge and practically handed the game over to the Sixers. After shooting 69% percent in the first, the Sixers shot 34% from the field for the rest of the game. Sure, their were some non-calls by the officals, but you cannot pin the loss on them. The Sixers completely blew this one.

Now 1-2 on the year, they will come back home to host Sacramento on tomorrow.


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.
