Tonight, the Philadelphia 76ers had a chance to win back the NBA championship belt against the San Antonio Spurs. Their quest to regain the title fell short tonight as the Spurs won 109-85.

This game was over by the first quarter as the Spurs were leading 31-13. Tim Duncan did not play in tonight’s as Spurs head coach Gregg Popovich gave him a day off to rest.

The Spurs didn’t need Duncan tonight as Danny Green would lead the Spurs starters in double figures with 18 points and 5 of 7 shooting from the three point line. Tony Parker also pitched in tonight with 14 points and 9 assists.

Brett Brown sure got taught a lesson tonight by the teacher but his young team still showed flashes of potential. Evan Turner continued his stellar play with 20 points but shot 9 of 21 from the field. Spencer Hawes who got a double-double early in this game finished with 17 points and 13 rebounds.

On the other hand, rookie point guard Michael Carter-Williams did not have a good shooting night at all. He was 2 of 11 from the field and only scored eight points but that what happens when you go against an all-star in Tony Parker.

Finally, a continued bright spot for the Sixers has been Tony Wroten off the bench as tonight he scored 13 points in 21 minutes of game action.

The Sixers are now 4-4 on the season and next play Dwight Howard and the Houston Rockets on Wednesday night at 7:00 pm ET.
