Click for full story. Did the Sixers do a decent job of getting into the lane on the offensive end and keeping Indiana out on defense? How was Andre Iguodala's shot selection? What about Evan Turner's off-the-ball performance? This is where we keep tabs on some key trends using the advanced data now available to us.

Click for full story. Indiana is pretty much on the same level as the Sixers. Jrue + Turner + Iguodala is roughly equal to Granger, Hibbert and Collison in terms of the foundation of a team. Neither team has much beyond that. Indy has more veteran scrubs while the Sixers have a bunch of players with some sort of potential (who are mostly scrubs). This was pretty much a game of equals. It didn't look like it on the floor in the second half.

Click for full story. There's only so much analysis I can do during and immediately after games. Typically, I try to pick one or two things to keep an eye on, plus the rotation charts. Luckily, we now have ways to take a closer look at what happened and try to determine why. This series will use the tools available to examine some key facets of the game and gauge how well the Sixers are winning (or losing) certain statistical battles.

Click for full story. The Pacers are a bad team. They're mired in mediocrity, with an over-rated "star" as their centerpiece, a couple of young pieces with some potential and a cast of supporting characters who just don't fit. Some people would say the Sixers are in the same boat. I think the Sixers are in a better situation for the short and long term, but playing the second night of a back-to-back is probably a worse situation for Philly than Indy.

Click for full story. The Philadelphia 76ers are worth the price of admission. There's no doubt about that statement right now. When they're bad, and they've had some horrible stretches in the first two games, it's like watching a trainwreck. Their glaring weakness is laid bare on nearly every play. Doug Collins is helpless to stop it. But when they're good, they're electric. We had a taste of both in tonight's 104-101 loss to the Atlanta Hawks.

Click for full story. For the second time in three days, the Sixers will take on a team bound for the playoffs. The Atlanta Hawks put on an offensive show against the Grizzlies on Wednesday, dropping 119 points in a 15-point win. This team isn't searching for the offensive identity like the Heat were, they're familiar with each other and they're going to present significant matchup problems.

Click for full story. Way back in June, Statman developed a new advanced stat which would look at individual player contributions to the team's wins and losses. It's a fresh way to look at who did what and what it meant to the overall performance of the team. Today, he's putting his system to the test. Check it out after the jump.
