Sixers Cut Down Nets 106-97: The Cantankerous Reaction Thread

Howard Smith-USA TODAY Sports

Looks like someone (or a team full of someones) didn't get the memo.

Despite the wishes of many, the Philadelphia 76ers defeated the Brooklyn Nets 106-97 tonight at the Wells Fargo Center for just their second win in their last 14 games.

Of course they did.

In a contest that was boring for 75 percent of the time, the Ace of Spades Award goes to Spencer Hawes, who finished three assists shy of a triple-double (24 points, 10 rebounds, seven assists). Seriously.

Other players who deserve blame credit for the win include Damien Wilkins (13 points), Dorell Wright (15 points, 13 of which came in the second quarter), and Mr. Anti-Tank himself Thaddeus Young (16 points, 10 rebounds).

On the bright side (?), Jrue Holiday had a very solid game after a slow start: 15 points (on 8 shots), 11 assists and just one turnover. And for what it's worth, the 76ers actually got to the foul line 27 times (though they missed nine free throws because... Sixers).

Full recap to follow. Do not fear, true believers: The Tankonia Express will roll on soon enough.

Enjoy the Big Macs.
