The Sixers, after haven't played a game since the home opener on Wednesday night, lost 100-84. During the game, just two minutes into the game, shooting guard Jason Richardson left with a sprained ankle after stepping on a cameraman's foot. Richardson has been ruled out for Monday night's rematch at the Wells Fargo Center. Doug Collins and the Sixers organization believe the injury will only keep the sharpshooter out for a few games.
The Sixers seemed to have a lack of energy on Sunday afternoon, as they certainly didn't look as lively as the opener. The team also weren't as sharp shooting the ball. Among the highlights of the Sixers first loss, Jrue Holiday had his first breakout game of the season. The newly extended Holiday, led the Sixers offense with 27 points and 7 assists. Philadelphia just couldn't find an answer for the Knicks, Carmelo Anthony. Melo led New York with 27 points, and 5 total rebounds.

Nothing that happened at Madison Square Garden last night will compare to the emotion at Shea Stadium on September 21st, 2001. For all his on-the-court heroics, Carmelo (or is it Melo now?) Anthony wasn’t Mike Piazza. Eric Spoelstra wasn’t Bobby Cox; Mike Woodson wasn’t Bobby Valentine and Lebron James wasn’t Chipper Jones. Or, maybe he kind of was. In any event, it would...
Here at Menudo Bol, we love Rasheed Wallace and now it seems so does MSG.
Must feel great for Wallace to hear the chants calling for his check in on the court. And in classic Sheed fashion, he drills a 3.
