R15: Sixers v Hawks
What a jamarvelous (yes, that was GOLD) win that was on Friday and now the Sixers get to back up and do it all again in front of a home crowd against the Hawks. It's Heritage Week and the Sixers and Hawks have a 1986 inspired uniform. Looking forward to Skip spinning a few good ones from '86.
Hawks season is over, but their plan now is to disrupt others. They want a win recorded against all opponents so Sixers need to be careful. The Hawks team has a strong ex-Sixer base too, so getting a win against your old club is as tasty as eggs and bacon in bed on Sunday morning.
The matchup most fans will want to see is the Ervin-Wilson clash. That will be one of the key matchups to decide the game. The other will be in the talls department and whether the Hawks can control the rampaging Motum. I will be watching Oscar. He is the Hawks most prolific 3 point shooter and is due to bag out with half a dozen. I get the feeling Gordie will have a few tricks up his sleeve.
This is the Sixers game to lose. The Hawks have fresh legs and will be very keen, but a win for the Sixers means much more. There's no need to kick a man when he's down, so just keep it simple and do enough to get the W. No soup for the Hawks, Sixers all the way.
Let's Go Sixers, Let's Go
