Raptors 108, Sixers 98: Immediate Reaction Thread

Coming off a poor road swing, the Sixers offered a stinker back in front of the home crowd.

Considering how poorly a majority of the Sixers played tonight, it's pretty surprising that the Toronto Raptors didn't leave the Wells Fargo Center with a 30-point victory. Even though the Sixers never gave up and were able to keep the final margin relatively respectable, the sparse home crowd didn't witness a very pretty performance. Hey, that's Atlantic Division basketball.

Spencer Hawes was terrific, scoring a Hardenesque 28 points on 13 shots. Almost everyone else's performance ranged from blasé to, in the starting backcourt's case, flat-out bad. It's not anything worth getting riled up over, as these are the type of nights one must accept when their basketball team is going through a rebuilding process.

I think it's safe to say that there's going to be a lot more of these. Buckle up, and then REACT. Full recap will be up a little later.
