Road Woes

After beating the Boston Celtics on Mar. 11, Philadelphia lost the first two games of their five-game road trip.
 
Their most recent loss occurred against the Utah Jazz last night. The 76ers erased a 21-point deficit to take a three-point lead in the closing seconds of the game, but could not hold on for the win. Al Jefferson and C.J. Miles hit clutch shots for the Jazz to tie the game at 103 and force the overtime session. 

The Jazz's momentum carried into overtime and propelled them to a 112-107 victory. Jefferson led the way with 30 points and 17 rebounds, while Andre Iguodala produced 23 points and six assists in a losing effort.

This loss followed a 28-point rout (102-74) by the Milwaukee Bucks on Mar. 12. The 76ers looked sluggish and over matched in the contest. They shot under 40 percent from the field and committed 20 turnovers in the loss. 
 
Although they failed to take advantage of the opportunity of earning a half-game lead for the sixth-seed, Philadelphia is still five-and-a-half games ahead of the eighth-seeded Indiana Pacers, and are in command of the seventh-seed. 
 
The 76ers can make up for their losses and finish strong in their next three games, which includes two games against below .500 teams. 
 
Philadelphia will continue their road-trip in California against the Los Angeles Clippers (26-42) on Mar. 16 and Sacramento Kings (16-49) on Mar. 18, and will finish the trip against the Portland Trailblazers (37-29) on Mar. 19.

  1. I'm actually surprised to see the way the 76ers are playing after the all-star break. They are able to win games, but only if they stay consistent. I believe Jrue Holiday will become a much better player in helping the 76ers succeed in the future. Only thing I hope the 76ers will do right is gain players in the off season.

  2. I agree, Jrue Holiday is the present and future leader of the 76ers. They have a nice core in Andre Iguodala, Holiday and Brand, but they could use a player like Kevin Love or a legitimate starting center in the future.
