Sixers Get Back On Track, Beat Raptors 98-93

Elton Brand scored 22 points and grabbed eight rebounds as the Sixers beat the Raptors 98-93 at Wells Fargo Center. The win ensures that the Sixers will finish with at least a .500 record on the year and keeps them within a half game of the sixth seed in the Eastern conference.

As has been the case most of the year, the Sixers bench outscored the opposition reserves 30-11 behind 20 points from Thaddeus Young and 10 from Evan Turner. Jrue Holiday, Jodie Meeks & Andre Iguodala were all also in double figures.

The Raptors were led by DeMar DeRozen and Jerryd Bayless who scored 27 and 24 respectively.

The Knicks beat the Nets tonight, so they remain a half game ahead of the Sixers for the sixth seed in the East. The Sixers have just two games left, Orlando on Monday and Detroit on Wednesday with both games in Philadelphia. The Knicks have three remaining at the Pacers, home to the Bulls and away to Boston.

At this point, there's really no difference between the six and seven seed in the East. The Heat and Celtics are tied for the #2 and #3 seed, so the Sixers first round opponent will be one of the two and there's nothing the Sixers can really do to ensure they get one or the other.
