It's the last of a back-to-back for the Sixers tonight, who actually haven't shown up to a game for a while now so they should be pretty well rested. It's the showdown of two of the league's best tonight as the Sixers have lost 7 of their last 9 while the Cavs, coming off an almost 40-point loss in Detroit, are just waiting for the season to end so they can laugh at us when they get a top 5 pick to pair with likely rookie of the year winner Kyrie Irving. If the Sixers drop this one, they'll be back to the hilarious .500 record that we've all grown accustomed to over the past decade. It looks good on us, why stray from what we know, right?
The game's on TCN again tonight because CSN is carrying the Flyers playoff game as they go for a sweep against the Penguins. You're probably better off watching that (my cable provider doesn't carry TCN so I don't really have a choice), even if you don't like hockey.
Hello? Guys? Is anybody even out there? Didn't think so.
