    Sixers have to feel like the Heat do when the Celtics shut them down or another team goes off. Sixers needed another player in the mid 20’s, Better games from Iggy & Brand in terms of points, rebounds and assists. And maybe another player or two to score closer to 18 or 19 to win. Just a matter of not being able to keep the lid on Wade. He’s owned the Sixers, even before the super friends era started this season. Much like Allen Ivereson could do to other teams.
