The Sixers defense took it to the Pistons. They held the Pistons to 14 points in the first quarter and 31 total in the first half. Detroit never scored more than 22 points in a quarter and a lot of that was due to the Sixers getting their hands in the passing lanes.
Offensively, the Sixers were passed by Andre Iguodala. Iguodala had 10 points, 10 rebounds, and 10 assists. Lou Williams lead all scorers with 17 and the Sixers had six players in double figures including Evan Turner who added 12 and continues to turn it on night after night.
It was the 10th home victory already on the young season for the Sixers. All 10 of their home wins have come by 10 points or more with the closest victory being a 96-86 win over the Pacers on January 9th. The win pushes the Sixers record to 14-6 and holds their lead over the Boston Celtics at 4 games.
The Sixers will be back at it tomorrow at the Wells Fargo Center as they welcome back Chester product and Saint Joseph’s University graduate Jameer Nelson and the Orlando Magic. Tipoff is at 7:00 pm and there are still great seats available.
