The good news is that the Sixers got off to a much better start today, attacking the basket early and shooting over 44 percent for the game. Still, it wasn’t enough to secure a first W for the 7-6 down in Orlando. Jacob Pullen and Justin Holiday led the way for the Sixers with 23 and 16 points respectfully. Pullen got the start at point guard today following an impressive performance yesterday against the Pacers. He continued to aggressively attack the basket and use his quickness to his advantage. Despite his skinny frame, Holiday continued to find the ball, leading all Sixers with seven boards.
Rookie Maurice Harkless had a nice basket from the lower block early, but once again seemed to disappear. The rookie out of St. John’s certainly wasn’t playing bad, but struggled to create plays for himself off the ball.
