Iverson's 38, CWebb's 27 fuel Philly's 6th win in 7 games

I attended this game. It was good to see them win another one wire to wire. Although they did have that 3rd period drop-off, they put the foot back on the accelerator in the 4th for a 111-100 victory.
Shavlik Randolph is becoming a fan favorite. He gave the Sixers 20 minutes of scrappy play ( 5 REB, 1 STL, 1 BLK, 8 PTS). He displayed a few adriot moves under the basket that got the crowd going. The Sixers game plan was to post up the Warriors bigmen. Sammy D scored the Sixers 1st 8 points, inside the paint.
This was a nice win at home before the big left coast road trip. I just wish more fans were there to see it ( the offical number of 14,813 was generous). Attendance has been inexplicable low. While I can understand how no one expects them to win a championship this year. They are winning. Something they were not doing last year. Maybe we can blame it on hurricane Katrina ... everyone else is.
