    Game 7: Sixers @ Cavs: How about we do this again?

    VS

    Philadelphia 76ers - Cleveland Cavaliers

    Location: Quicken Loans Arena, Cleveland, Ohio
    Date: Saturday, November 9th, 2013
    Time: 7:30 PM EST
    Broadcast: CSN (TV), 97.5 FM (Radio)

    Points per Game Assists per Game Rebounds per Game
    Sixers Turner 22.2 MCW 7.3 Hawes 10.3
    Cavaliers Irving 16.7 Irving 7.3 Thompson 9.7

    A night after knocking off Cleveland in Andrew Bynum's return to Philadelphia, the 76ers look to continue their success over the Cavaliers by sweeping this home-and-home set.

    The surprising Atlantic Division leaders will try to win their first two road games for the first time in 13 years Saturday night when they go after their 10th win in 11 meetings with the Cavaliers.

    Following consecutive home losses to Golden State and Washington by a total of 34 points, Philadelphia (4-2) got back on track by cruising to a 94-79 victory over visiting Cleveland (2-4) on Friday.

    While they were predicted by most to be among the worst teams in the league, the 76ers are beginning to open some eyes as they sit atop the Atlantic through six games.

    "We have a young, hard-working group of guys in here and we all have a lot to prove," said Thaddeus Young, who had 16 points and eight rebounds. "We just need to stick together and I think our confidence is growing with each win."

    Evan Turner looks to continue his hot start after posting 22 points, 10 rebounds and five assists Friday. Turner had 23 and 13 rebounds in a 97-87 win in Philadelphia's most recent trip to Cleveland on March 29.

    Now the 76ers are hitting the road for the first time since a 109-102 victory at Washington on Nov. 1. They haven't won their first two road contests since a 10-0 start during the 2000-01 season -- the last time they won the division.

    Philadelphia seemed to make significant strides defensively Friday, holding the Cavaliers to a season-low 33.3 percent shooting after allowing 108.4 points per game on 45.2 percent shooting in its previous five. The 76ers trailed 28-14 in the first quarter before limiting Cleveland to 51 points over the final three quarters.

    "We need some grittiness and some toughness to surface, especially on the road," coach Mike Brown said. "Right now, it's not happening and I don't know if it's because we don't have the home crowd giving us a little extra energy or what it is."

    The Cavaliers, however, also have struggled at home against Philadelphia, shooting 41.5 percent and averaging 88.2 points while losing four of five meetings.

    Kyrie Irving, scoring a team-high 16.7 per game, hopes to regroup after finishing with a season-low 10 on 4-of-17 shooting. The star guard has averaged 8.8 points while shooting 17 for 60 (28.3 percent) in five games against the 76ers -- all losses.

    Bynum finished with four points and five rebounds in his first game back in Philadelphia since sitting out his only season with the 76ers because of bilateral bone bruises in both knees.

    The former All-Star center, who signed a two-year, $24 million deal with the Cavaliers in July, is expected to sit out the return leg of this back-to-back in an effort to preserve those ailing knees.

    The Cavaliers also might be without top draft pick Anthony Bennett as they look to bounce back by improving to 3-0 at home. They haven't won their first three home games since LeBron James led them to 23 straight victories in Cleveland to open the 2008-09 campaign.

    Bennett, 1 for 20 from the field through six games, is uncertain after going down with a sprained right shoulder in Friday's loss.

    My first shot at making one of these. Used Sixers04 template. Hopefully you guys like the little touches I added.

    PS: Someone want to sticky this?

    It's fine. Very well done. As for the game...man, it is really hard for a team to win on back to back nights, especially against the same team, only on their Home court. So losing won't surprise me, or disappoint me. Just keep up the effort. Let these younger guys like MCW and Wroten get the minutes needed to let their games grow. It will only help us next season.

    I think I will happen. Bynum and Bennet aren't that important to the Cavs. They can't possibly shoot that bad 2 nights in a row.

    Tried my best to get the goofiest pictures of each player I could find. Obviously Hawes with his ****-stash is the bast I could do.

    I'm NOT trying to be a Negative Nancy here but, could tonights game be the beginning of a 6 game losing streak ? I mean after the Cavs tonight, we have Houston and the Spurs coming to Philly, but still both those teams are really good. Then we have 3 straight on the road...at Atlanta, then New Orleans and then Dallas.


    Could we soon be looking at a 4-8 record ?

    Well....Okay, maybe we all will accept the fact if we do lose alot this year. But I refuse to believe that you Warfelg, or anyone else here is outright CHEERING for our team to lose...no way. So when I said Negative Nancy....I didn't want anyone here to think I was rooting for us to lose....just trying to point out that we have some tough games coming up.

    Not really cheering but I think, myself with a few others, but are really hoping to loose most of those games.

    I mean look through most of our posts, we're saying things like "Hope MCW does well, but I ultimately want to loose" and similar things.

    We want to loose.
