Detroit Pistons guard Allen Iverson was fined $25,000 by the league on Tuesday for making inappropriate comments toward a fan in a win at Charlotte.
Iverson made some obscene comments to a fan with 6.2 seconds remaining in the third quarter during the Pistons’ 90-86 victory over the Bobcats on Saturday. It is still unclear as to what AI really did say.
Charlotte Bobcat guards DJ Augustin and Raymond Felton combined for 48 points, 16 assists and 12 rebounds in their third game starting together, and the Bobcats beat the Sixers 93-84 Monday to snap a four-game losing streak.
Elton Brand had 18 points, but made only 6 of 13 shots and fouled out with less then a minute to go. Thaddeus Young was held to six points on 2-of-10 shooting. Andre Iguodala added 17 points for the Sixers, who shot 40 percent and had their two-game winning streak snapped.
Next up for the Sixers are the Orlando Magic on Wednesday night from the Center.
Big Elton Brand had 23 points and 12 boards and Andre Iguodala added 15 points and the Philadelphia 76ers moved above .500 for the first time this season. The 89-81 victory over the Golden State Warriors on Sunday was the Sixers second in a row.
Thaddeus Young contributed 12 points and Samuel Dalembert had 16 rebounds for the Sixers, who improved to 7-6.
Kelenna Azubuike scored 16 while C.J. Watson and Stephen Jackson had 12 apiece for Golden State, which dropped its second in a row. Andris Biedrins and Brandan Wright had 10 apiece.
Next up for the Sixers are Larry Brown and the Bobcats tonight at 7:00 PM from Charlotte.
- Down 10 points in the 4th
- 19 – 0 run highlighted by 10 straight from Iggy to take an 89 – 80 lead with 5:00 to go.
- 1 of 6 teams to win IN Boston this year
- Detroit, Charlotte, Washington, Toronto, and Utah being the other five (all playoff teams except Charlotte – Ray Allen did not play in this game)
- 18 – 5 since the All-Star Break. 2nd best record in that span only to the Houston Rockets (who also won 22 in a row)
- Currently hold the 6th seed as Toronto has dropped 2 straight, meaning we would not face Detroit or Boston in Round 1.
- 1 game behind the 5th playoff spot currently held by Washington
- ABOVE .500 FOR THE 1ST TIME THIS SEASON (36 – 35)
Oh, you wanted highlights…
