ORLANDO - The shorthanded 76ers won their first game in the Orlando Pro Summer League on Wednesday, defeating the Brooklyn Nets, 79-71, at the Amway Center. The Sixers fell behind, 16-4, to start the game. But point guard Zack Rosen and forward Devin Searcy came off the bench to provide a spark with their hustle and savvy play. With the backups on the floor, the Sixers (1-2) took a 17-16 lead. The game remained close until the Sixers pulled away in the fourth quarter after a flurry of assists by Rosen.

ORLANDO - Andre Iguodala could be suffering from culture shock, or the bends, or maybe vertigo on Monday. The 76ers forward made his NBA All-Star Game debut Sunday night at the Amway Center. He played well in his 14 minutes, 11 seconds, collecting 12 points and four rebounds. But for the most part he watched as the Western Conference scored in about as many ways as can be done in a 152-149 win over the East. The West scored 88 points in the first half, an All-Star Game record.

ORLANDO - Forget whatever you thought you knew about the 76ers. That they can't shoot, don't defend, and aren't worth the price of admission. Because right now the Sixers are reinventing themselves. They're morphing into a playoff basketball team. On Saturday night inside the Amway Center, the Sixers defeated the shorthanded Orlando Magic, 97-89. It took a heck of a lot of defense and a stroke of good timing. Only hours before the game's tip, Orlando's front office executed two separate trades, sending four key players - two of them starters - to two different teams.

DURING HIS All-Star Game MVP performance last week, Kevin Durant made Orlando's Amway Center his personal playground, scoring at will with a barrage of jump shots and easy open-floor baskets. The rims weren't quite as kind early on during the Oklahoma City forward's return trip, but he got reacquainted with them late and also got help from fellow All-Star Russell Westbrook to help the Thunder pull out a 105-102 victory over the Orlando Magic last night. Durant scored 38 points, including 18 in the fourth quarter, and Westbrook added 29 points and 10 assists as Oklahoma City erased a 14-point deficit to battle back for the win. Durant's effort was two points better than his All-Star night and also included five three-pointers and a 9-for-9 night at the free-throw line - all in a game-high 42 minutes of action.

ORLANDO - The Orlando Predators fan sitting above the Philadelphia Soul's bench wasn't showing any southern hospitality. "Hey, Vena, thanks for the interception," the fan taunted Soul quarterback Ryan Vena. "You're our best player. I'll buy you a drink after the game. " Despite flashes of brilliance, Vena's debut as Soul quarterback will be remembered for two second-half interceptions that allowed Orlando to take a 53-46 victory before an announced Amway Center crowd of 11,789.

ORLANDO - Although it was an improvement from Monday's lackluster performance, the result was still the same as the 76ers lost to the Utah Jazz, 84-80, at the Amway Center on Tuesday afternoon. The loss moves the Sixers to 0-2 in the Orlando Summer League after falling to the Indiana Pacers, 69-63, on Monday. For the second consecutive day, the Sixers received strong performances from rookie guard Jacob Pullen, who had 23 points and four assists, and rookie forward Justin Holiday, who had 16 points and 7 rebounds.

ORLANDO - If he had to lose, Soul receiver Tiger Jones would rather get blown out than lose like his team did to Arizona in Saturday's ArenaBowl. A disappointing day continued the Soul's frustrations against the Rattlers, as Arizona won, 48-39, before an Amway Center crowd of 12,039 and a national TV audience. The big play eluded the Soul all day. The sequence that symbolized the afternoon came in the final minute, when it looked as if the Soul might pull off a heart-stopping comeback.

ORLANDO - Even by summer league standards, the 76ers are dealing with a makeshift lineup. Rookie small forward Maurice Harkless, the 15th overall pick in June's NBA draft, missed the second half of their 84-80 loss to the Utah Jazz at the Amway Center on Tuesday afternoon with a left hip flexor strain. The Sixers are now 0-2 in the Orlando Pro Summer League and are dealing with more than just the loss of Harkless. Power forward Arnett Moultrie, who was drafted by the Miami Heat with the 27th overall pick and then traded to the Sixers, was left off the summer league roster with a sprained left ankle.

Dominic Cheek never quite lived up to the billing that preceded his three seasons at Villanova, so it's no wonder the early-entry NBA candidate is looking forward to turning the page. On Wednesday at St. Joseph's University, Cheek began the next phase of his basketball life, as he joined four other players in a pre-draft workout in front of 76ers coach Doug Collins and other team officials. In his first workout since leaving Villanova, the 6-foot-6 Cheek - not seen by many as likely to be selected in the two-round draft - was joined by Kim English (Missouri)

ORLANDO - The guards impressed but the defense didn't as the 76ers lost their second straight game in the Orlando Pro Summer League, 96-75, to Indiana at the Amway Center. Temple product Khalif Wyatt crafted his way to 25 points, while shooting 11-for-18 from the floor. He scored just about all of his buckets the same way he did under coach Fran Dunphy as an Owl, by getting to the basket and using his unorthodox style to get shots. His starting backcourt mate, 11th overall pick Michael Carter-Williams, didn't fare so well from the floor (4-for-19)
