The Sixers have managed two games over .500 for the first time this season. In the capper of his rise into the spotlight, rookie Marreese Speights took matters into his own hands Monday night jamming ball after ball for a career-high 24 point performance.
The third-straight win was done in spectacular fashion over the Suns with a 108-91 total that was a Sixer show on the court the whole game. Contributions came from everyone, including 25 from another youngster Thaddeus Young.
As the Suns set the pace of the game taking off running, the Sixers followed suit proving not only that they were able to keep up, but the fast break was one of its most powerful weapons.
