The Sixers: Taking Care of the Ball

Feb 2, 2012, 10:42 AM EDT

After last night's big win over the class of the East, the Chicago Bulls, the Sixers aren't just hearing the praise from the locals. The national media seems to have been waiting for Doug Collins squad to beat somebody of significance before raining praise down upon them, but now it's coming.

After last night’s big win over the class of the East, the Chicago Bulls, the Sixers aren’t just hearing the praise from the locals. The national media seems to have been waiting for Doug Collins squad to beat somebody of significance before raining praise down upon them, but now it’s starting to come.

Sports Illustrated’s Zach Lowe has a nice piece this morning that is full of tasty nuggets, like how well the Sixers are taking care of the ball, ‘They are on pace for the second-lowest turnover rate — that’s turnovers per possession – in league history, and they coughed it up just 10 times Wednesday.”

Go check out the whole thing, he gives mad props to Iggy’s game last night, calling it an All-Star performance as well.
