Despite the common belief that the Sixers were entering this season with no intentions on winning while refusing to admit that the objective was to obtain a high draft pick, Brett Brown’s squad has found some early and unexpected success.
Las Vegas pegged the Sixers at 16 wins for the entire this season, and they already have five, including three against legitimate title contenders.
Tonight, James Anderson, Tony Wroten, and the Sixers defeated Dwight Howard, Jeremy Lin, and the Houston Rockets in overtime.
Here are some of the highlights via the Twitter world.
Well, Cole Hamels stayed until the end. I’m saying it: He’s got Sixers fever.

Sixers surprise. RT @tomhaberstroh: A reminder that James Anderson was waived by the Rockets five months ago. 34 points tonight.

Very shortly will resume trying to understand how Tony Wroten/James Anderson became unstoppable + everything else that made no sense tonight

Tony Wroten is on a triple-double watch at half (9p, 6r, 7a). Ah, so that’s why Lionel Hollins doesn’t have a coaching job (kidding :] )
