Hard to believe that the Sixers actually lost to the Raptors by 18
recently—except not really, because the Sixers were losing to everyone
by 20 in those days. They get their chance to make up for it tonight in
front of a rockin' Wells Fargo Center crowd (uh-huh) when they host the
Raptors in the two teams' fourth and final meetup this season. (The
Sixers won the first two, but neither was by 18 points, so who cares
about those games.) The Sixers have only played twice in the last eight
days, so they should be rested, at the very least. Maybe Evan Turner
will actually go long on his jumpers tonight!
7:00 tip from the WFC. Evan is not concerned about the haters.

About NBC internships
The online petition to ban Pete Morelli from officiating Eagles games is rapidly gaining signatures.
Count Malcolm Jenkins for one.
"I would definitely sign that petition if it came across my desk," Jenkins said with a laugh to NBC Sports Philadelphia's John Clark on Monday at the safety's Blitz, Bow Ties and Bourbon charity event.
The Eagles beat the Panthers, 28-23, last Thursday night despite a significant discrepancy in penalty yards. It was a game officiated by Morelli's crew — and you can see why that's notable by clicking right here.
"We felt like a lot of those were ticky-tack, or weren’t good calls," Jenkins said after the game. "For us, adversity is nothing new for us. We just kind of strap up and keep playing, and hunker down. We continue to play aggressively, that is the biggest thing. We don’t want that to take away our aggression, or our ability to make plays. So we just go to the next play."
What about the next signature?
Eagles fans just need to get that petition to Jenkins' desk.
