Disheartening how poorly the Sixers played at both ends in the final 8 1/2 minutes to go from up 10 to a six-point loss by being outscored 31-15. Rashard Lewis and Hedo Turkoglu are quality scorers, but Courtney Lee killed them with his three fourth-quarter 3-pointers.

Miller went 4-for-5 from the field in the fourth quarter, with the rest of the team 2-of-13. Iguodala was 4-for-6 in the first 1 1/2 quarters and 4-of-15 the rest of the way.

Sixers are 0-8 against East's top three -- 0-3 versus Celtics and Magic, 0-2 vs. Cavs.

So disheartening. They could easily have three wins against those teams, in fact, they should. This team just rips your heart out.

Tom, did anyone ask DiLeo about Speights' minutes tonight? That's 2 games in a row w/ only 7 minutes played.

3 pt shots. The game is so much easier when your team can hit them. We have to work so hard to keep leads without that weapon. Until we develop a 3 pt 1/2 court offense we just won't win many games against the better teams in this league.

so bitter. I love it. Yesterday was awful, I think I'm done with the eagles and another painful loss for the sixers

maybe you shouldn't let your bitterness over something that is 'only' a game allow your chauvinistic views to be expressed with the "Whatever." comment in reference to Lou and his mom's cause. let your mother, grandmother, sister or other loved one be affected by heart disease and i seriously doubt you would blow it off then. first person report is an apt name considering the selfish view taken here

you're right that came off as insensitive. my "whatever" was directed to the actual pregame introduction, not its theme. it just came off as amateurish and insincere. of course i support women with heart disease.

Good lord, Juice... give Mike a break, will you? He uses one eight-letter word and you portray him to be Satan. The large majority of us realize you don't wish heart disease on anyone, Mike, so please don't worry about it.

Thanks for that info on Mary Carey, magic fan here (sorry) I was 4 rows behind the court and this woman literally walked in front of me every 10 seconds. People were cheering her on, yelling obscenities and she was digging every moment of it. She was even with some dude who was proud to let mad dudes take pictures with her. The players reactions were hilarious as players on both teams often made comments as she paraded herself around. Do the sixers pay her? Between that and the halftime trampoline underwear act you guys really put on a phenomenal show!

yea i was trying to figure out if the guy with her was her boyfriend, who is also on the VH1 show and comes off as a huge scumbag. the sixers definitely don't pay her, but it was a very strange sight indeed. i can only imagine being a lakers or knicks fan and getting to see stuff like that every night.
