Box Score

Nets Daily

I honestly don't know what to say. The Sixers seemed to be cruising to an easy victory until the fourth quarter. That's where the Sixers dropped a whopping 8 points, going 2-22 from the field. On top of it, they missed their last 18 shots! 

If we've learned anything this season, it's that the Sixers are going to play in some ugly games. They'll also rip you heart out occasionally, and that's exactly what they did tonight. There's just something about the Nets that brings out the worst in everyone.

34% shooting isn't going to cut it in many games. And scoring 25 points in the entire second half usually leads to a loss. The best thing the Sixers can do is, put this game behind them, enjoy the SuperBowl and get back to work on Tuesday when the champs come to town. Anything less than their best and they're going to get blown out by the Celtics.

I'm going to skip the "likes" and "dislikes" for this game because every Sixer would probably end up on the dislike list and I, like the Sixers should, want to erase every part of this game from my memory and move on.

On thing that needs to be mentioned before I close my laptop and flash myself with my trusty Men in Black neuralyzer. That thing is Brook Lopez. He was the difference tonight. I can't believe I'm saying this about a 7-footer, but he actually plays bigger than he is. Yao Ming should take note. He had 24 points, 17 rebounds, 4 blocks and about 15 shot alters tonight. It's also pretty hilarious that he looks and talks like Andre the Giant

With the loss, the Sixers move back to .500 at 23-23.
