The streak is Over

Yes, the streak is over. That's the Celtics 11 game winning streak. The Sixers marched in to Beatown and slayed the dragon. They nearly notched a win last time there. Losing in a 113-110 shootout. Shorthanded again the Sixers prevailed this time, 98-97.BOSTON - DECEMBER 18: Andre Iguodala #9 of the Philadelphia 76ers fades away for a shot against Kendrick Perkins #43 of the Boston Celtics on December 18, 2009 at the TD Garden in Boston, Massachusetts.( Photo by Brian Babineau/NBAE via Getty Images)

This was an excellent game from start to finish. Sheed Wallace provided some fireworks. Getting kicked out of the game for the 1st time this year. Some things never change. Jrue Holiday had another solid game. I really like this kid. A real point guard.

Sixers found away to finish down the stretch this time. Iggy hit some big shots and Brand tipped in the game winner. In fact, Brand leads all Sixers with 23 points. He may not like it, but Brand and Mo Speights coming off the bench seems to be the key. They needed more scoring from the bench.

I’m pumped … bring on the Clippers!
