Philadelphia 76ers Getting Inside 2009-10-31

Philadelphia 76ers Getting Inside 2009-10-31The Sixers' offense continues to be a work in progress. In the Sixers' season-opening 120-106 loss to the Magic, they only had 13 fast-break points, 69 points through three quarters.

The Princeton offense wasn't much better. The "Big Three" of Elton Brand, Andre Iguodala and Thaddeus Young combined for just 24 points on 8-for-27 shooting.

"I'm not happy with our fast-break numbers," said Sixers coach Eddie Jordan afterward. "We just have to make good basketball plays."

Two nights later, the Sixers improved to 19 fast-break points and 49 points from the "Big Three" in downing the Bucks 99-86 at the Wachovia Center. They were able to get out and run in a 35-point third quarter, when they had 10 fast-break points. They also moved the ball pretty well early, recording 10 assists on their first 11 baskets.

"Sometimes, the offense gets a little bit stagnant and we don't get to our spots," said Andre Iguodala. "When we get stops, we get a good flow and it seems to work well."

"We're at our best when we get out in transition and run our offense," Elton Brand said.

The key now is to do it more consistently. Having some good quarters and some bad quarters isn't a recipe for success over the 82-game grind of an NBA season.

SIXERS 99, BUCKS 86: The Sixers prevailed in the home opener with a 58-point second half and a much better perimeter defense. The Sixers rode a 35-point third quarter and a Jason Kapono three-pointer with 4:34 to go to the victory. Elton Brand was more aggressive after a sub-par opener with 17 points on 6-for-12 shooting, three steals and two blocked shots. Andre Iguodala had 17 points, nine rebounds and seven assists.
