Raptors take out Sixers again

Lowery three’s key to victory

Kyle Lowery fired up six three point shots and made all six en route to his Toronto Raptors defeating the Philadelphia 76ers 122-95 last night.

“Catch ’em and shoot ’em. We have a team where no-one cares who’s the man,” Lowery said.  “On any given night, you can go off for 30 and we’ll all be supportive and happy for you.”

For the Sixers, it was their 4th straight loss but Head Coach Brett Brown had high praise for the Raptors.

“They’ve grown this thing in a way we respect, we want to try 76ersand learn as much as we can in how they’ve done it,” Brown said. “The pieces are solid. It’s way beyond just DeMar. You saw what Kyle did from the perimeter. This is a team that’s built for the playoffs, they’ve been battle-tested, they’ve played together. There hasn’t been erratic player movement, they’ve retained a core.”

The Sixers have little time to regroup as they prepare for a home game against the Orlando Magic tomorrow evening at the Wells Fargo Center.  Plenty of great seats and affordable tickets are still available so be sure to grab your tickets and get out to see your Philadelphia 76ers!

Sixers fall to Mavericks on the road

Dallas Forward Monta Ellis scored 13 third quarter points en route to 24 total points in a 94-97 loss to the Dallas Mavericks.  The Sixers had opportunities and were down by six with thirty seconds remaining when the Mavericks turned it over, one of 20 in the game.  Philadelphia was unable to capitalize and the game ended with a Shawn Marion dunk at the buzzer.

”I thought we battled and showed a lot of heart to come back from arguably our worst performance in New Orleans, and we lost to a good team,” Philadelphia coach Brett Brown said.

Philadelphia faces the Toronto Raptors on Wednesday. Great seats and tickets are still available.
