Unfortunately the much anticipated exhibition match up between the 76ers and Toronto Raptors was not on television here in Philadelphia last night.  Instead Comcast SportsNet rebroadcast as classic college hoops game between LaSalle and Temple (For the 10th time we might add.), while TCN showed FIM Motorcross from Latvia. 

What did we miss?  Well, only a double-overtime preseason game in which Jrue Holiday posted a triple-double (18, 12 & 11) and rookie Evan Turner hit for a double-double (13 & 12).  But hey…who cares?  Right?  Certainly not Comcast…which by the way owns the 76ers.

But that doesn’t mean we couldn’t find coverage of the game for our readers.

We’ll start off with a report from our fellow THN scribe Sam Holako at who provides a solid recap (with a Raptors slant) of last night’s double – OT loss by the Sixers

Of course has the highlights of the Raptors W over the Sixers last night.

One guy who had this game covered was our man Ryan McNeill at   McNeil scored the below video interview with head coach Doug Collins.


More video from Ryan and on this game in general after the jump.

McNeil also got time with rookie Evan Turner

As well as a couple minutes with Louis Williams


Kate Fagan of was also at the game last night and files a report in which she writes, “On Wednesday night at the Air Canada Centre, the Sixers sprinkled stretches of winning basketball with stretches of losing basketball…” has these Sixers at Raptors highlights as well.  But they didn’t send anyone to cover the game either and got their recap from the AP. 

No respect I tell you, no respect at all.
