Sixers win! Finally!

Howard Smith-USA TODAY Sports

A quality, late effort from the Sixers to down Orlando, but this is a game they were clearly supposed to win.

With no Jameer Nelson, Orlando ends up getting almost 40 minutes of Ronnie Price.

Instead of double-double machine Nik Vucevic, they got, well, an insane Glen Davis. Not sure what overcame him, but he put up one hell of a performance tonight. As did Arron Afflalo, further cementing that Orlando got the good end of the Andrew Bynum trade.

Despite the tremendous effort from Davis and Afflalo, this shouldn't have been a game that took two overtimes for the Sixers to win.

But just as he's done in overtimes past, Michael Carter-Williams was there to carry the load. The more I watch him, the more evident it becomes that he's here to stay.

More importantly: that game was insufferably long. Your recap tomorrow.
