The death of their Abe Pollin put some perspective into the Wizards internal bickering as the Caron Butlerless Bullets eked out a 1 point win over Philly. Butler and Arenas are at odds lately which hopefullt can be cured with a couple of Ws. Some reaction to Abe’s death from ESPN.com:
“He would want us to celebrate his life and not mourn his death,” Wizards coach Flip Saunders said. “That’s just the individual he was. But when you’re here going through it, it’s not that easy.”
The game was Sixers coach Eddie Jordan’s first against his former team since he was fired by the Wizards one year ago to the day. Jordan’s 97 coaching victories rank third in Wizards history and he led the 76ers into the arena with a heavy heart. “I had a very close relationship with him,” Jordan said before the game. “It’s adversity for me to overcome to focus in and prepare and get a clear head and get my team to play at a high level.”
