11/30/12 – On Friday night the Sixers returned to action against the young Charlotte Bobcats. They were going for their third straight win and couldn't take the Bobcats lightly. They are very young with players like Kemba Walker, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, B.J. Mullens, and Bismack Biyombo, but are hungry and its showed in their play so far this season.

As it turned out the Sixers had a pretty tough game Friday night. The first half was tight with somewhere around 15 lead changes. The Sixers shot the lights out and at halftime they led 54-50 shooting 58.5% and 50% from 3. In the 3rd the Sixers would extend their lead due to the stellar play of Evan Turner, but the Bobcats fought back to tie the game up. Jason Richardson then showed up in the 4th quarter and hit 4 3's. He and Turner sparked a 12-4 run that put the Bobcats away. Final score PHI 104-98.

The Sixers won tonight because, for a change, THEY dominated inside. The Sixers shot 28-45 (73%) for 54 points in the paint, grabbed 13 offensive rebounds, and had 18 second chance buckets. Jrue Holiday played a huge part in the high shooting percentage due to this career high 15 assists, putting his teammates in prime scoring position. Players like Lavoy Allen, Evan Turner, and Thad Young all shot really well tonight and made an effort to hit the glass. The Sixers took advantage of another 'smallish' team like themselves and were able to get the win tonight, without having to sink 10+ 3-pointers. No rest, game tomorrow 8 p.m. @ the United Center vs. the Chicago Bulls. More to come…
