PHILADELPHIA (CBS) – After a 12-6 regular season and an East Division title, it is now a three-game season for the Philadelphia Soul as they open the playoffs Saturday night, hosting Orlando.
Philadelphia had won seven in a row before dropping their regular season finale to San Antonio, a loss which cost them the top seed in the conference. But they have been one of the hottest teams in the league since mid-season.
‘We’ve played well these last two months, no question about it,” Soul head coach Clint Dolezel tells KYW Newsradio. “We had a little slip-up. We didn’t play a few players, that probably came back to haunt us, but we wanted to make sure we were totally healthy coming into the playoffs.”
