With all of the Disney Princesses admirably rescued from the dangerous ice of the Wells Fargo Center, the Sixers find their way back home to the P-H-I after a long trip out West. With the lowly Pistons on the docket for tonight, the Sixers are sitting in an unfamiliar spot from a year ago; they are 3-2 in their first five games, all of which were played in the Wild Wild West.
After starting last year’s season off 1-9 in their first ten road games (the only win coming in Madison Square Garden where five Sixers players had to score in double-figures to get the win) and finishing 15-26 away from the WFC, there were a lot of skeptics around the Greater Philadelphia Area that said the Sixers seemed doomed to repeat another lousy start in 2011-12.
Well that has not been the case this year boys and girls. It’s actually quite the contrary.
