Burrell Propels Phils; Sixers Play Game 2 Tonite!

There is just WAAAY too much going on right now with the local squadrons. I'll do a Flyers playoff preview for lunch tomorrow......

The Phils

The Phils pulled out another late inning, come from behind win, this time against the Colorado Rockies by a score of 8 -6, giving them a record of 1 game over .500 in the season to date. The turning point in the game came with Pat Burrell's bases loaded double in the top of the ninth. Burrell's game winning hit came after Rockies' manager Clint Hurdle made the mistake of walking the slumping Ryan Howard to get to the hot hitting Pat Burrell. Brad Lidge put the Rocks away in the bottom of the ninth for the save.

The Phils will be in Milwaukee tonite at 8:05pm; CMH vs. Dave Bush.

The Sixers

The Sixers, after pulling a stunning upset of Detroit in game 1 of their best of seven series, get back at it tonite against the Pistons in Auburn Hills.

Will the Game 1 victory be seen as a wakeup call for the Pistons or a portend of things to come for the Sixers? Listening to Stephen A. Smith on the Mike Missanelli show yesterday, Smith thinks the Sixers are already done in this series. It is easy to forget that Stephen A. is pretty knowledgable about basketball and has real good NBA access when he's not screaming at us or overgesticulating like my drunk uncle on Christmas Eve. I've never been a huge fan of his writing after he became a columnist; I felt on items other than the NBA, he was practically unreadable. But in that interview, he sounded cogent and measured to the point where I thought he may have been drugged.

Anyway, I don't know if the Sixers will win tonite, but I do believe they are a little better than they are given credit for. As bad of a game as Iguodala may have had shooting in game 1, it's not as if Rip Hamilton had a good game either, shooting 5 of 17. If they can somehow limit Rasheed Wallace, (24 pts, 9 boards, 7 blocks in game 1), they should have a punchers chance tonite against what will probably be an angry group of veteran Pistons.
