Two teams racing in opposite directions clash tonight in Philadelphia, as the 37-26 Brooklyn Nets (who have won three straight) take on the 23-38 Philadelphia 76ers (who have lost 11 of their last 12). The Sixers have been in complete freefall for some time now, hitting rock bottom on February 26th with a 98-84 loss to the Orlando Magic that culminated in a reckless and feckless press conference from Sixers coach Doug Collins. Add in that it doesn't appear that Andrew Bynum will play for the Sixers at all this season, and suffice it to say that the year hasn't gone as planned for the Sixers.
Joining me to talk about Sixers basketball is the talented and affable Tom Sunnengren, of ESPN's TrueHoop 76ers Affiliate blog Hoop76. To give you an idea of how the Sixers season has gone so far, read the tone of Tom's answers, then consider that Tom never met a smile or happy thought he didn't like.
And, as always: The BK Game Streak is up. Get to playin'.
Devin: The Nets won the first two matchups between these two teams and the Sixers are in complete freefall, losing 11 of their last 12 games. What would have to go right for Philly to sneak their first win over Brooklyn this year?
