Tom Moore Talked With Todd Ranck, Sixers 1-0 to Start the Season
The Philadelphia Sixers won their first game of the season last night with an 84-75 victory over the Denver Nuggets.
It was a return home for Andre Iguodala, who was part of a 3-way trade to the Nuggets that brought Andrew Bynum to Philadelphia.
Today on "The Sportsbash" Todd Ranck had a chance to talk with Sixers reporter Tom Moore on the game last night.
Moore talked about the ovation, or lack thereof in some instances, that Andre Iguodala received in his first game back in Philadelphia. Iguodala was heavily booed every time he touched the ball, although the fans gave him a standing ovation when the Sixers showed a highlight video during a timeout in the 1st quarter.
Moore also wasn't very impressed with the game Evan Turner displayed both on the offensive and defensive side of the ball. Turner scored just five points in 28 minutes of action.
Jrue Holiday showed signs of a leader late in the game hitting a running shot when the Sixers lead was cut to one point late in the 4th quarter.
After the game Holiday signed a 4-year $41 million contract extension with the Sixers just minutes before a midnight deadline that would have made him a restricted free agent after the season.
