Click for full story. There's no shame in splitting a pair of games against the Knicks and Grizzlies. There is, however, shame in the defensive effort the Sixers put forth last night, and blowing a 17-point lead. Anyway, they need to shake it off and focus, because the schedule is smiling on them over the next seven days, and they need to take advantage.

Click for full story. The Sixers look to make it two in a row tonight in Philly against a disadvantaged Memphis squad. The Griz lost at home to the Hornets/Pelicans last night, and they also lost their starting point guard, Mike Conley, to a sprained ankle.

Click for full story. Yes, the bottom-feeding scourge of the sports blogging world, fake trades. With the team spiraling out of control, Bynum's return hopefully looming, but not before a handful more losses pile up and a weird three-day rest period, why not?

Click for full story. Watching this team can be maddening, at times. Over the past two games, they've played basically 48 minutes of quality, hard-nosed defensive basketball (entire second half + overtime against Toronto, entire second half minus a five-minute stretch vs. San Antonio). Against the bad team, one half was enough. Against the good team, it wasn't. Against Milwaukee tonight, they aren't going to have the legs to make a big comeback.

Click for full story. That first half was the ugliest half of basketball I've seen in nearly two weeks, since the Sixers last got hammered by the Raptors. The second half and overtime? Yeah, that was pretty.

Click for full story. With Shelvin Mack in hand and a couple days of practice under their belts, the Sixers will look to right a wrong tonight at the WFC. Nine days ago, they laid down in Toronto and let the Raptors have their way with them. They better stand up.

Click for full story. Inconsistency is not this team's problem. Their big men are consistently soft. Their starting small forward is consistently overmatched and petulant. Their offense consistently depends on one guy to do everything, and everyone else to take low percentage shots. This team built a dominant defense around an extreme strength last season. This year, that strength is a glaring weakness...consistently.

Click for full story. The Sixers will look to build their win over the Rockets on Saturday into a streak tonight against the New Orleans Hornets in Philly. The Hornets probably aren't as bad as their 11-26 record would indicate now that they've got their full team assembled, but they're still a team the Sixers should be able to handle on their home floor.

Click for full story. The Sixers put their practice time to good use in between the Toronto loss and the Houston win. One change they made seemed designed to serve two purposes: Keeping their legs fresher and limiting the wide-open looks from three their opponents had been getting.
