The Sixers, who beat the Houston Rockets 115-107 on the road Monday to improve to 3-4, also held on for a 112-110 victory in Dallas on Saturday night, the first time they have won in those two cities in the same season since 2000-01.
They also ended an eight-game slide in Houston, and won back-to-back games for the first time since March 17 and 19, when they beat Dallas and Boston.
Marchand came out of the box and tied the game 40 seconds later, scoring the Bruins’ second power-play goal of the night with assists by Bergeron and Pastrnak. It was Marchand’s eighth goal of the season and the 200th of his career.
“We put ourselves in a bad spot and we fought our way out of it, so that’s the positive,” Bruins coach Bruce Cassidy said. “I don’t like to see us start like that. I take a lot of pride in being ready to go. I thought we weren’t as a group. We corrected it and gave ourselves a chance to get two points. It just didn’t work out in the shootout.”
That’d leave a lot of money to work with and a big hole at quarterback to fill. While the Cardinals’ roster has taken a step backward recently, it still has stars on defense like Chandler Jones, Patrick Peterson and Tyrann Mathieu. The team also has one of the best offensive talents in the NFL in running back David Johnson.
For a team that everyone thought was well on its way toward tanking for a quarterback in the 2018 NFL Draft, the Jets have done surprisingly well so far in 2017 with long-in-the-tooth Josh McCown under center. Their 3-5 record has even come with close losses to the Patriots and Falcons.
Perhaps now he can fulfill the original expectations and at least act as a RB1. Ajayi enters Week 9 tied for 30th among running backs in PPR scoring after being selected as the No. 8 running back and 16th overall in ESPN average live drafts.
