Living To See Another Day

The Philadelphia 76ers are on their way back to Miami for Game 5 after using a 10-0 run capped off by a Lou Williams (17 points) game-winning three-pointer with eight ticks remaining to help them to a 86-82 victory on Apr. 24 in Game 4.
Philly showed a lot of heart with their backs against the wall down 3-0 in the series. They fought and scrapped throughout the game to split their two playoff home games 1-1.
The rookie of out Ohio State, Evan Turner was a bright spot in this victory (along with Williams), scoring a playoff career-high 17 points and grabbed six rebounds, while guarding superstar LeBron James at times during the game.
The 76ers bench showed up as always and produced 36 points on 14-of-33-shots from the fields. They also outrebounded the Heat 49-41 after being dominated on the boards in the previous three games of the series.
There's little hope left as this young team travels back to South Beach to try and win their first game on the road in this series and come within a game of locking this series at 3 games on Wednesday.

Forgive and Forget

After a 12-0 run to cut Miami's lead to one (88-87) with 2:23 to go in regulation, the Philadelphia 76ers ran out of gas and faltered to a 97-89 defeat on Apr. 16.
The 76ers bench showed up as always, scoring 36 of the team's points. Thaddeus Young came off the bench and led Philadelphia in scoring with 20 points and also recorded 11 rebounds. 
Although the reason for a lost cannot be determined by one mistake or one person, it can be included to the causes of the eventual loss. 
"Star" guard, Andre Iguodala had little to no impact on this game despite knowing how important his contributions are to this team's success. Iguodala scored four points on 2-of-7 shooting and had more turnovers (4) than shots made in 37 minutes of play. FOUR points and FOUR turnovers will never get it done in any NBA game, especially, the playoffs.
Despite his dismal offensive performance (shooting wise), Iguodala produced nine assists and eight rebounds. He and the 76ers as a whole have a chance to redeem themselves tonight in Game 2 in Miami on TNT.

Philadelphia's Playoff-Bound

The Philadelphia 76ers will be in the post-season as the seventh-seed, and will be matched up against the star-studded Miami Heat in the first-round.
 
Even though the Heat are much more talented with LeBron James, Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh on their roster, the 76ers still have at least one advantage over them. Philly has the best bench in the NBA, and going up against a team who's bench is a non-factor in most of their games is definitely an advantage. 

Philadelphia has been beat by the Heat in all three of their meetings this season (Oct. 27 87-97, Nov. 26 90-99 and Mar. 25 111-99). The regular season ends Apr. 13, and a new season begins this weekend! The postseason is a race to 16 wins, and everyone has a 0-0 mark to start.
 
With the consistent production from their bench, some toughness and heart, and a little help from the referees (a couple early fouls on James and Wade wouldn't hurt) the 76ers could make this series competitive and possibly win it. If they fail to bring these things their chances of winning will decreased.
 
Along with the bench, Andre Iguodala will need to perform like he has never performed before. 76ers fans do not need him to flirt with a triple-double, Philadelphia needs him to get the triple-double in every game. He was given the star role of the team, so he needs to give the star effort in the playoffs, especially in the first-round.

Greer and Iverson are One and Two in Scoring

Former Philadelphia 76ers, Hal Greer and Allen "The Answer" Iverson are the No. 1 and No. 2 all-time scoring leaders in the Nationals/76ers franchise history, according to multiple sources.
 
Greer, who played his whole career in a National/76ers uniform holds the top spot on the franchise's all-time scoring list with 21,586 points. He played in the NBA from 1958 to 1973.

During his 15-year career, the guard/forward scored over 1,500 points in 10 seasons, and posted a career-best 1,976 points (24 points per game) during the 1967-68 season. Greer was apart of the first Philadelphia 76ers team (since the switch from Syracuse to Philly) to win the NBA championship in 1966-67. 
 
The 76ers have not won a championship since the 1982-83 season, and the last man to get them to the NBA Finals was the 76ers's second all-time leading scorer, "The Answer".

Iverson scored 19, 931 points in his career as a 76er. In his 14-year career (1997-2010), Iverson averaged 26.7 points per game and played 10 full seasons with the ball club. 
 
He averaged a career-best 33.0 points per game and scored a career-high 2,377 points during the 2005-06 season.  
 
During the last season that Philadelphia stepped onto the NBA Finals stage in the 2000-01, Iverson averaged 31 points, 5 assists and 2.5 steals a game.

The 76ers has had many great players in its franchise who were outstanding scorers, as well as, overall players.

We have entered a new era in Philadelphia 76er basketball, and it has a promising upside. Let's see if one of the current and/or future players on the 76ers roster can perform at an optimal level like Greer and Iverson, and challenge their historic numbers, but more importantly bring a fourth championship to Philadelphia.
