Sixers Poised to Break .500


And never look back.  The Sixers begin a seven game homestand tonight against Washington that also includes winnable contests against New Jersey, Indiana, and Memphis.

Cracking .500 has recently eluded the Sixers, this being their third attempt in the last 12 days, but the Wizards, owners of the worst record in pro basketball, present the best possible opportunity.  Succeed, and they achieve a winning record for the first time since November 26.

Elton Brand is coming off his best game since returning to the floor.  He dropped 14 points, grabbed 7 rebounds, and had a season-high 6 blocks in 25 minutes at Houston, a Sixers victory.  Prior to the injury, Brand scored a season-high 27 in a December 13 win over the Wizards.

Tip at 7:00.
