Dalembert makes it on time for game

Sixers center Sam Dalembert, who traveled to his native Haiti after Monday's game in Minnesota, arrived moments before game time tonight and was in the starting lineup.

Dalembert left shortly after Monday's game to get to Haiti, still recovering from last week's horrific earthquake. Dalembert's father, a sister and a brother, as well as other family members and friends, were in Haiti at the time of the earthquake. Dalembert has said he would like to get to Haiti as often as he can, providing the Sixers' schedule allows.
