Anytime one can say “Did you see that Spencer Hawes fast break jam?” then it must have in a good night at the office for the Sixers. It was much more than a good night though, as they annihilated the Phoenix Suns 103 -83 to get their first win of the year, Wednesday night in the desert.
The 3rd quarter started with a 19-0 run that pushed the Sixers’ lead to 33. That run included the memorable Hawes’ coast to coast trip after a Suns turnover that ended in his emphatic dunk. Hawes, who’s been a surprising bright spot through the first two games, nearly earned another double-double as grabbed 11 rebounds while scoring 9 points.
Of course, he had a lot of help from his friends, including Andre Iguodala, whose sparkling all around first half performance propelled the Sixers to a 14 point lead heading into halftime.
