|If the Sixers win either of their next two games, this season's Ice Capades trip can be classified as nothing short of a rousing success. Tonight, the calendar will flip some time in the third quarter (on the East coast), and if the Sixers can pull off a minor miracle in Los Angeles, they'll have every right to celebrate.|
|Statman checks in with a look at the Sixers production viewed through the PER or Production lens. There are some eye-openers in here, check it out, download his spreadsheet if you want a closer look, and check out 82games.com if you'd like to do some digging of your own. On a personal note, I'd like to thank Statman, Rich, GoSixers and TK76 for their contributions to the site this season. You guys are all doing a great job. It's nice to have a couple more voices and viewpoints around here.|
|As a Sixers fan, the only good thing you can say about 2010 in general is that hopefully the path was cleared for 2011 to be a little brighter. As far as tangible results go, well, let's just hope we don't have to live through another year like this for a long, long time.|

About halfway through the game, I realized Vince Carter will be a perfect fit for the Suns. He's only 50% more disinterested than the entire franchise. This game may just have been Evan Turner's coming out party, and it was definitely fun to watch.|

There's a chance Vince Carter will make his debut for the Suns, but the guy who's been filling in as the starting SG in Jason Richardson's absence has put together a couple impressive games in his interim role as starter.|

|Typically, we take a look back and a look forward at ten-game intervals around here. Well, the holidays and the back-to-back delayed it by a game. Anyway, the Sixers were 6-5 over their last 11, they sit 7 games under .500 and a half game out of the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference. Let's take a look at the advanced stats, POTG leader board and finally the upcoming schedule.|
