Iguodala coming along, 76ers' Jordan says

Iguodala coming along, 76ers' Jordan says Only eight days and two preseason games remain before the 76ers officially begin the season in Orlando.

Through six preseason games, they have just one loss.

They play the Washington Wizards in their second and final home preseason game tonight at the Wachovia Center. The Wizards are the former team of new Sixers coach Eddie Jordan.

Washington fired Jordan early last season; the Sixers hired him at the end of May.

The Sixers did not practice yesterday after returning from two games against the Suns in Phoenix and Monterrey, Mexico.

The Sixers lost the first game, then won the second on Sunday, 116-94.

In the victory in Mexico, Sixers swingman Andre Iguodala scored a game-high 23 points. Iguodala, last season's leading scorer, had been struggling offensively. He is the team's fourth-leading scorer this preseason, at 12.5 points per game on 39.7 percent shooting from the floor.

Iguodala made 10 of 17 from the floor Sunday night. Afterward, Jordan said Iguodala looked the best he had this preseason.

"He went to another level, maybe two levels," Jordan said. "I was really proud that he kept his teammates involved. He was aggressive for himself, but he made plays for his teammates - Andre really did take it to another level."

Jordan said that in the team's first game against the Suns on Friday, he didn't see the "team concept" he desired. The coach believed Sunday's effort was improved.

"I like what we did, from our starters to our bench guys," Jordan said. "And what I liked was we didn't just play 24 minutes. We got a good lead in the first half, and we came out in the second half and took the challenge from [the Suns] and kept the lead very comfortable for us. Getting it and sustaining it was very satisfying."
