The first home game of the Sixers season is tonight vs the Detroit Pistons.
The Sixers are the only team in the NBA who has yet to play a home game, and they’re 3-2. Sure, we’ll look at the Utah game and said “we shoulda had that one,” and we’re right. But coming back from a west coast road trip 3-2 is still a win in my eyes.
I’m going to say the home crowd is an actual advantage tonight, and the Sixers win it 103-94. We ended the season with a sloppy game against the Pistons last year, this would be a great way to make up for it. I think we start slow and finish strong tonight.
I’ll say Lou Williams is the game MVP with 23 points and 4 assists.
** Revised prediction: Ben Gordon and Rodney Stuckey are out. Sixers win 118-64.
