It just comes down to finishing games.

The Sixers were leading the Toronto Raptors late in the second half and were looking their third victory in the the face. But once again turnovers and bad defense doomed the squad as they fell 94-86.

Forward Elton Brand recorded 27 points and 8 rebounds in the loss. Jrue Holiday added 17 points and 7 assists for the Sixers.

But the Sixers just couldn’t contain Raptors big man Andrea Bargnani. Bargnani had 30 points and 7 rebounds in the win.

Sonny Weems chipped in 25 points for Toronto.

It has been the story of the Sixers’ season thus far. They’re in every game late but always seem to find a way to lose.

It still looks like they have a long way to go and this season could be a long one. The play of Evan Turner and the future of Andre Iguodala with the team will be something to keep an eye on.
