PREVIOUSLY, THE PHILADELPHIA 76ers...lost at Boston 113-110 on Wednesday night without Elton Brand and with Jrue Holiday making his first NBA start in place of the injured Lou Williams. It was Philadephia's fourth straight loss though each loss was by six points or less.
It's imperative that the Hawks play hard and play well tonight so that last night's second half collapse can be chalked up more to Orlando's capacity for excellence than to any emerging and inherent flaws of the Hawks.
