another frustrating night for Sixers fans...
Wednesday night's game in Orlando was tough to watch on many fronts. The Sixers got out to an awful start, allowing the Magic to do what they seem to do best. Jameer Nelson was working the drive and kick while Dwight Howard was working the inside-out game setting up open looks.
And the Magic were hitting them. Ryan Anderson was red hot early on and finished the night with seven three-pointers. The Magic as a team finished with 15 three-balls.
While the Sixers never rolled over despite the Magic's big lead for much of the game, they could never get it closer than five or six points. After trailing by 16 at the half, the Sixers had a hot start to the second half, cutting it to single digits and eventually to as little as four... but they weren't playing the Bobcats on Wednesday night.
Orlando hit shots at opportune times and never allowed the Sixers to truly get back in the game after the opening tip.
Jrue Holiday had a particularly bad game as well.
From John Finger's recap, "The Sixers had an uncharacteristic 14 turnovers in the loss with five of
them coming from point guard Jrue Holiday. To make matters worse,
Holiday shot just 1 for 8 and scored just three points." [for full game 'cap click here]
Even new announcer extraordinaire Malik Rose was off his game, mixing up his Ryan Anderson and Dwight Howard's to call the three point shooter the name of Phillies' slugger Ryan Howard on occasion.
Ugly night all around.
Another tough opponent on Friday in the defending champ Mavs back in Philadelphia. Gonna need to show some homecourt bounce-back.

BETHLEHEM, Pa. -- Karekin Brooks rushed for 268 yards with three touchdowns on 29 carries and Pennsylvania outlasted Lehigh 65-47 on Saturday in the 60th meeting between the defending champions of the Patriot and Ivy leagues.
Brooks became the 12th Quaker to rush for 200-plus yards in a game and moved into second on Penn's single-game rushing record, behind Terrance Stokes' 272 yards against Princeton in 1993. Brooks also threw a 4-yard touchdown pass to David Ryslik early in the fourth quarter, which made it 56-35.
Penn (2-0) scored consecutive touchdowns 1-minute, 9 seconds apart late in the second quarter to establish a two-touchdown lead it maintained during a second half that saw the teams trade scores on virtually every possession.
Will Fischer-Colbrie finished 13 of 20 for 235 yards and three touchdowns, connecting with Christian Pearson on a 43-yard scoring strike, Logan Sharp from 26 yards and Nicholas Bokun late in the fourth from 21 yards out.
Lehigh (0-4) was led by Brad Mayes, who went 26 of 40 for 444 yards with four touchdowns, but also suffered two interceptions.
