Sixers to face Detroit on Saturday

Apr 21, 2005, 9:14 AM EDT

The Sixers wrapped up their regular season with a win in convincing fashion, which isn’t all that telling since they were playing Atlanta who won only 13 games all season.  But the fact of the matter is the Sixers won 8 of their last 10 and did in fact finish strong.  They won 10 more games than last season which is a great improvement.  The Chris Webber trade really changed the dynamic of this squad and injuries were and are still a factor in the success of the season.  The only two Sixers to play in all 82 games this year were youngsters Kyle Korver and my boy Andre Iguodala.

Detroit is definitely beatable, but the inside presence of Ben and Rasheed Wallace combined with the shooting range of Chauncey Billups and company will prove to be a big challenge for the often defensively aloof Sixers.

Iverson won the 4th scoring title of his career joining the ranks of Wilt Chamberlain, Michael Jordan and George Gervin as the only players to ever capture 4 or more scoring titles.

On to the next season.
