Between Eagles And Phillies

The 76ers preseason game against the Phoenix Suns is on NBA-TV tonight.

Between Eagles And Phillies


In case you're looking for something to watch between the end of the Eagles-Oakland Raiders game (no disrespect to the Eagles' post-game show on Comcast SportsNet) and the start of Game 3 between the Phillies and the Los Angeles Dodgers . . .

There's always the 76ers. Their preseason game against the Phoenix Suns at 7 from Monterey, Mexico is being broadcast by NBA-TV, albeit in Spanish.

The Sixers are 4-1 in the preseason after Friday night's 115-113 loss to the Suns in Phoenix. Tonight's game will feature Spanish-speaking announcers and graphis in Spanish, part of an NBA marketing initiative to personalize the game for Hispanic fans.

The Sixers, who won their first four preseason games for just the fifth time since 1963, came from 18 points down in the fourth quarter Friday to challenge the Suns. They were undone, in part, by Suns guard Dan Dickau going 6-for-6 from the foul line in the final five minutes.

The good news was, Marreese Speights scored 32 points on 12-for-18 shooting, swept 12 rebounds and blocked two shots, and rookie guard Jrue Holiday had 14 points, 7 rebounds and 6 assists in 30 minutes before fouling out. The bad news was, Elton Brand (1-for-7), Samuel Dalembert and Andre Iguodala combined to shoot 1-for-15.
