While the Flyers wee busy picking up a hard earned victory in Boston, the Sixers were busy trying to defend their home turf at the Wachovia Center. The Sixers finally got out of the losing column with the victory over a team that used to play in Philadelphia, the Warriors. Perhaps the proverbial monkey is off their backs but this team has a lot of work to do in order to compete in the division and the conference, let alone the entire NBA.
For Allen Iverson this was his first win in a Sixers uniform since November 24, 2007. The last Sixers win for Iverson came against the Chicago Bulls. Three games later Iverson was traded to the Denver Nuggets, starting the infamous Iverson Tour of the NBA before returning home.
