Philadelphia 76ers Getting Inside 2009-11-07

Philadelphia 76ers Getting Inside 2009-11-07After a 31-point home loss to the Celtics, Sixers coach Eddie Jordan insisted four games into the season was no time to panic.

"I have great patience," Jordan said. "It's the fourth game of the season. I'll have great patience at the 40th game of the season. There's never frustration with me in this job. It's a challenge every day."

Never mind that the Sixers' three-point defensive work, running of the Princeton offense and perimeter shooting had been so disappointing in the early going.

The Sixers didn't exactly have a breakout performance in Friday's 97-94 victory over the undermanned but willing Nets, but they prevailed. Despite missing a pair of free throws in the final 22 seconds that could've sealed the verdict prior to Andre Iguodala stripping Terrence Williams with one second left, Jordan said the result is what matters the most.

"They were desperate," said Jordan of New Jersey. "We found a way to win."

Iguodala was a little less enthused by the Sixers' showing.

"It shouldn't have come to that," Iguodala said. "We didn't have a good performance. I think they outplayed us (Friday night). We just came away with a 'W.'"

SIXERS 97, NETS 94: The Sixers struggled mightily against a team missing three starters and with only nine available players. They relied on the bench, especially Jason Kapono (14 points, 4-for-6 on three-pointers) to pull them through. The Sixers made 4-of-5 three-pointers in the fourth quarter and also limited the Nets to .350 shooting in the period.
