An amazing comeback, injecting faith into a city, and a superstar FINALLY starts taking steps in full realizing that expectation. The Sixers came back from an 18 point second half deficit to literally steal game one from the Orlando Magic Sunday night in Orlando.
Andre Iguoladala, who has never been fully accepted as the true superstar status that was projected on him when the other A.I left and he signed the big money contract, finally had his defining moment as the Sixers number one man, hit the game-winning fade away jumper with 2.2 seconds to go, a mere minute after Iggy missed two clutch free throws that would’ve then given the Sixers they’re first lead of the second half, as well as adding more fuel to the fire of doubt that Sixers fans have had since Iggy signed the big money contract.
“We discuss this all the time: We think Andre is a very, very good basketball player, knocking at the door of the All-Star Game,” general manager Ed Stefanski said. “I don’t think the people have embraced him as that kind of player.”
A.I and the Sixers get back to action Wednesday night at 7pm in Orlando for game 2 of the best of seven series.
Oh and in case you happened to miss the final few minutes, Youtube always has us covered, enjoy.
