It wasn't perfect, but winning a close game is a positive thing. Rodney Carney had a good game. Mo Cheeks showed faith in the rookie with late 4th quarter minutes (21 total). Carney had his hard hat on ... setting picks, scrumming for balls and hard nose 'D' against Grant Hill.
The 76ers defended Dwight Howard well and shutdown Nelson in the second half. Grant Hill was Grant Hill (good but not great). But clearly there is more work to be done. They got out rebounded and gave up over 100 points. Still, you can't underscore the value of finding a way to close out games.
Sixers 105 Magic 103 Philadelphia Only number that counts is score BTW, did you see King James posterize Tim Duncan last nite. Awsome!
