SIXERS: Williams, Iguodala Guide Sixers to Win Over Nets

Lou Williams and Andre Iguodala both had good games for the Sixers tonight in a 97-94 win over the New Jersey Nets tonight at the Wachovia Center.  After a horrendous performance the other night against Boston, the team shot the ball well tonight, including going 8 for 16 from 3 point range.  In what was a pretty close game throughout the entire contest, the Sixers needed a late 3 pointer from Iguodala to secure the win in front of a crowd of just 10,054.  The team had some trouble keeping the Nets from scoring down low, especially Center Brook Lopez, who had a game-high 22 points and 11 rebounds for the Nets, who are still looking for their first win of the season.  It certainly did not help that Thaddeus Young, Elton Brand, and Samuel Dalembert all failed to reach double digits.  Lou Williams had a great game, scoring 18 points to go along with 9 rebounds and 6 assists.  Williams has been one of the biggest surprises so far this season, averaging 17 ppg along with about 5 assists.  His play tonight may have very well saved the game for the Sixers since they got no production from their frontcourt.  Along with good play from Iguodala and Jason Kapono (4-6 from 3 point range), the team was able to scrape out a very forgettable win against New Jersey.  It is becoming clear that so far this season the Sixers are nothing more than an average team who are able to win close games against the inferior teams, and are being thoroughly dominated by the best of the East.  However, a win is a win, and hopefully they will find their stride soon.  Next game is Sunday afternoon against the Detroit Pistons at the Palace of Auburn Hills.
