|Michael Carter-Williams will probably return from his knee infection tonight which means there's a chance he goes nuts and steals a win for the Sixers. I'd say it's probably a good chance. After thrashing the Sixers 130-94 on Monday, Brooklyn returned to form with a home loss to the mighty bullets.|
|Good news: The Nets have leapfrogged the Sixers in the standings with a 3-1 spurt. Bad news: MCW might be back for one of these games and it's very hard for any team to take two in a row in a home-and-home, no matter how hard the Sixers try to lose.|

|Sam Hinkie did his roster destruction over the summer to set things up for the 2014 draft. Masai Ujiri appears to be doing his on the fly...maybe. Getting rid of Rudy Gay made the Raptors better. Forget about the players he got back, losing Gay was addition by subtraction, and if he stops there it wasn't a tanking move, but rumors have Kyle Lowry as the next man out of Toronto, which would signify an organizational tank job.|
|The Sixers begin their two-game road trip tonight in Minnesota against a much improved T-Wolves squad. Minny should be much, much better than their 10-11 record. They sport the #7 defense in the league, and they're #11 on the offensive end. This one shouldn't be close.|
|Recently we've seen the Sixers defense make a horrid offensive team look like world beaters. Tonight, they Los Angeles Clippers, with the #4 offense in the league, will pad their stats and run the Sixers right off the floor.|
|If MCW's knee injury keeps him out again, the Sixers probably don't have a shot tonight against the Denver Nuggets. In this season filled with needed losses for the bigger picture, icing MCW is probably a good move, but I'd still love to see him abuse Ty Lawson and Nate Robinson. The matchup would've been unfair. Oh well.|
|The Charlotte Bobcats have the #3 defense in the league. The Charlotte Bobcats!!!! Wow. Granted, they're second-to-last in OFR, but it's pretty amazing they're so good on the defensive end, and it's no surprise they're hovering close to .500 with that type of production on the defensive end.|
|The Sixers will face a much different Magic team tonight from the one they lost to less than a week ago. The Magic will have to find a way to make up for the absence of big man Nikola Vucevic, who torched the Sixers for 21/16 last time. On the other hand, they will have the benefit of Jameer Nelson's absence...probably a wash overall.|

I started following basketball in 2001 around the post-season time and he had a pretty captivating performance during those playoffs that made a lot of kids my age into fans...
