Sixers Dominate Bulls

The Sixers did something tonight that good teams are supposed to do: beat up on the bad teams. The Sixers completely dominated the Bulls in every facet of the game, winning 121-99. It was a great overall team effort, with good defensive plays leading to tons of fast break points. There was no one hero tonight, as several guys stepped up and had good games. Andre Miller was awesome again, nearly getting a triple double with 9 points, 8 boards and a whopping 18 assists. Andre Iguodala also had a solid game, picking up 9 assists, 4 steals and 21 points, including this monster dunk. Louis Williams led the team in scoring with 23 points, and Thaddeus Young also netted 20.

The win helps the Sixers temporarily move into a virtual tie for the 5th seed in the Eastern Conference with the Washington Wizards, who will break the tie when they play the Sonics later tonight. The win was also important for the Sixers because it keeps them just ahead of the Raptors, who knocked off the Pistons tonight.

In the coming week, the Sixers schedule gets tougher, including their next two games against the Suns and Cavaliers. This team is for real, folks, so expect them to step up and continue to give these top teams a challenge.
