Half-assed Preview: Sixers @ Hornets

Our 6-2 Hornets are back in New Orleans this evening to take on the Philadelphia 76ers, the same team they demolished in Philly last Sunday. Cue photographic evidence of said event…

Sammy gonna get rejected

That 93-72 result was the Hornets biggest win so far this season, and I don't think we have to worry about the Sixers extracting revenge on us tonight like the Blazers did a week ago. The Blazers were well-rested and at home; the Sixers are coming off a loss to the Mavs in Dallas last night which dropped them to 2-5 on the season. I think this might be as close to a sure-thing as we'll get all season.

(Oh shit, did I just jinx us?)

Recap and video highlights of Philly's loss in Dallas right here. The Mavs turned it on in the third quarter and cruised to a 15-point win. Andre Iguodala shot like a dog but almost managed a triple-double (15, 12 and 8) for the Sixers. Sam Dalembert, who went for 15 points and 10 boards against the Hornets on Sunday, had 18 and 7 against Dallas.

It would be nice for the starters to blow this one open early, then get the reserves in there to make up for their dismal showing in New Jersey two days ago. I want to see an entire fourth quarter of Thaddeus Young vs. Julian Wright, dammit.

Anyway, I got stuff to do. Mostly push-ups and ass-kicking. Gotta get going. Game time is 7pm Central this evening. Leaving you with the relevant linkage…
