Sixers hoping to defend home court tonight

The Phoenix Suns picked up just their 14th victory of the season with a 98-95 win over the Atlanta Hawks Saturday night and in the process snapped a six-game losing streak.  A win tonight would be their first winning streak in over two months.

The Sixers have been led thus far by Jahlil Okafor’s 17.4 ppg and are pleased with the progress that the young star to be has made.  The Sixers Brett Brown is especially pleased with Oakfor’s mid range jumper which the young rookie has been implementing as of late.

 “I get upset when he doesn’t (take a shot).  When he picks and pops, and has daylight separation, I want him shooting,” Brown said. ” I get most concerned when he just picks and stands.  Whether he’s rolling to dunk, or rolling for a little 17 [foot] little pocket pass type shot, as long picking and moving, then good things can happen, and I think bad things happen when we’re indecisive.”
