76ers' play in Canada pleases their coach

76ers' play in Canada pleases their coach The 76ers finished their preseason trip to Ontario undefeated, beating the Toronto Raptors, 84-79, last night for their second win in as many days.

Last night's game was at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto; Tuesday night's game was in London, Ontario.

"I know it's a preseason game, but if I can see guys that will do things, can scramble out a win and do things to just hold the lead, that's a positive thing," Sixers coach Eddie Jordan said.

"I felt we finally understood the pace of the game has to be a little bit quicker for us. We want the game to be a little bit quicker pace."

Small forward Thaddeus Young led the Sixers with 11 points, while power forward Elton Brand and center Samuel Dalembert each scored 10.

The Sixers shot 26 for 28 from the free-throw line.

"It was timely to make our free throws," Jordan said. "We were horrible last night [making 22 of 32], and tonight we needed them to win. Hopefully, it's contagious and we keep on going."

The Raptors played without all-star Chris Bosh (strained hamstring) and off-season addition Hedo Turkoglu, who has tendinitis in his quadriceps.

Sonny Weems and Marco Belinelli scored 12 points each to lead Toronto. Former Sixers forward Reggie Evans had nine points and nine rebounds.

Tomorrow, the Sixers will play their first home game of the preseason, facing the New Jersey Nets at the Wachovia Center. They will open the regular season Oct. 28 against the Magic in Orlando, Fla.

Cheap tickets. The Sixers have partnered with McDonald's, giving fans an opportunity to purchase $10 tickets to all home games. The tickets are redeemable with a coupon available through participating McDonald's restaurants in the Philadelphia area.

The offer begins Saturday. Opponents in the offer include the Los Angeles Lakers, Boston Celtics, and Cleveland Cavaliers.

Also, fans can bring their ticket stubs from Game 1 or Game 2 of the Phillies' first-round playoff series to the Wachovia Center and redeem them for $10 tickets to tomorrow's preseason game against the Nets.

On the Web. The Sixers will air a Webcast of tomorrow night's game on Sixers .com. Play-by-play announcer Tom McGinnis will call the online broadcast.
