Great free-throw line percentage, grabbing balls off the floor and beating the opposition to the basket.
The Sixers. Go figure.
With the Flyers on the ropes and the Phillies near .500, the Sixers are now the hot team.
The Sixers grabbed a 89-82 win over the Bulls to grab a 3-1 NBA opening round lead.
If the Sixers win Tuesday night, it was be the first time since 2007 when Golden State beat the Dallas Mavericks.
It helps that Bulls stars Derrick Rose and Joakim Noah were out because of injury.
But somebody has walk through the door to take advange of the opportunity.
And so far the Sixers have.
Spencer Hawes led the Sixers with 22 points, Jrue Holiday 20 and Andre Iguodala added 14 points.
Carlos Boozer had 23 points, while C.J. Watson added 17 and Richard “Rip’ Hamilton added 7.
With Rose and Noah out, veteran Hamilton should play a bigger role.
In crunch time, Iguodala is missing his opportunities, while Holiday, Andre Turner and Lou Williams are the go-to guys.
