Andre Miller Is Handing Out 18 Dimes

27 Mar

Your Philadelphia 76ers put a hurtin’ on the Chicago Bulls last night, easily winning 121-99.  They never trailed and scored 91 points by the end of the 3rd quarter and put on cruise control for the 4th and final quarter.  And  your point guard Andre Miller?  Well, he had himself quite a night despite scoring only 2 buckets.  He accumulated 18 assists to the likes of Thad Young (20 pts), Lou Williams (23 pts) and Andre Iguodala (21 pts).  Here’s his take:

 “These young guys can get up and down, so it makes my job easier just to throw the ball ahead and let them make a play,” Miller said.

So true.  30 points came off the fastbreak tonight, and that’s a usual  occurrence with this team.   The emergence of Thad Young has really made this team into a running offense.  And this transformation has helped the Sixers win 19 of their last 24 games.  Wow.  No team in the NBA is hotter from what I can tell.  If they keep this up going into the playoffs there’s no telling what they can do in the playoffs.  Right now they’re half a game behind the Washington Wizards for the 5th playoff spot, and this is quite important because if they sneak into the 5th spot they would then play the Cleveland Cavaliers instead of Dwight Howard and the Orlando Magic.  Howard has been dominant against the Sixers and has controlled the glass and the defensive paint.  Facing the Cavs would give the Sixers a heck of a chance to win a series in the playoffs.
