Brett Brown is going home!
The Sixers are looking to finally bring this brutal losing streak to its demise tonight as they face one of the hottest teams in the league. The Sixers will face the San Antonio Spurs which is never an easy task for even the leagues best teams. Quite frankly, he Sixers have a little to no chance would be a dramatic under statement. The Spurs have won five consecutive games against the Sixers and have an overall record of 53-16. With the NBA playoffs on the horizon the Spurs may be looking to rest players but Manu Ginobili and Tim Duncan will still get their fair share of minutes.
The Sixers come into this game trying not to add more negative history to an already dismal season. They are currently two losses away from tying the Cleveland Cavaliers losing streak of 26 consecutive games. Philadelphia can not let that distract them because San Antonio may take them lightly. The Sixers could come out with a win even though the chances are slim. After hard fought battles against the Pacers, Bulls, and Knicks the Sixers have proven they have a ton of fight left in them. The team goes down often but in recent nights they have gone down swinging.
Thaddeus Young and Michael Carter-Williams have been carrying the load since the trade deadline. The Sixers will have their hands full tonight and will need all the support in the world to pull off what would be a monumental upset. Tip off is at 8:30.
