SIXERS STEAL GAME FROM SUNS 103-100! The Sixers came back to beat the Phoenix Suns 103-100 in the Europe Live games. This game was boring at first, then, without AI on the court, Rodney Carney and Rick Bruson staged a comeback in the 4th. Allen Iverson led the way with 29 points and 5 assists in 29 and a half minutes. Iverson started hot but cooled down in the second half. I liked one of his passes to Chris Webber and think he will start to become more and more unselfish. Chris Webber got 17 points and 4 boards in 26 minutes. Webber was just like AI, cold in the second half. They will play more in season. Andrea Iguodala got 11 points and 10 boards in 12 minutes. Andrea put solid number up. He will become better and better and maybe win the dunk contest this year! Kyle Korver got 20 points and 7 boards in 35 minutes. He played well. Korver was taking quick shots but made most of them. The rookie Rodney Carney got 14 points and 7 boards in 26 minutes. Carney was a part of the group that played defense and nailed a couple of three's to get back on the Suns trail. Shawn Marion got 25 points and 8 rebounds in 9 and a half minutes. Marion was good. He will post up crazy number again this year probably. Steve Nash got 15 points and 9 assists in 6 and a half minutes. Nash was fantastic. His passes are still amazing and will still keep him in the MVP race. Raja Bell got 13 points and 3 assists in 6 and a half minutes. Bell was all right. He had to dish the ball a little more on the break. Leandro Barbosa got 20 points and 4 boards in 5 and a half minutes. Barbosa was outstanding. His outside shooting was superb, but his defense could have been tougher. Amare Stoudamire got 6 points and 6 boards in 7 and a half minutes. Amare was good in his first look this season. He still has to get all the mobililty back mentally and physically to get back to where he was before. Keep it tuned to Basketball Notes by Alex for your preseason coverage.
