Game One Keys

Agree 100%. "We're going to try to keep everything the same from a mental aspect," Iguodala said of the team's approach. "Definitely don't want to go out there screaming at guys, but we're going to be on each other."

He added: "It's the same as usual. We're counted out."

This team is at its best when theyre counted out. I cant wait until 530.

Yup. Tell them they can't do something, and they're a completely different team than if you tell them they should win. Orlando is in for a rude awakening.

Hope to see you during the game for the game thread.

If Dean isn't pumped up by now, then he might need to find a new team :)

Getting rebounds and depends are essential because then the Sixers can get out and run, which is when they're at their best.

While the Sixers haven't been good at closing out games, they must be within single digits going into the fourth.

Curious to see how the benches play -- Williams and Speights are potentially more productive, but Battie and A. Johnson are more experienced and reliable.

Hell, Willie Green realizes this team needs to defend better. Anything is possible now.

More than anything, I want to see this team give everything. We have to play harder than them if we wanna win. I won't be surprised to see Royal Ivey diving for loose balls, but it'd pump me up to see Lou doing it. No easy baskets please, foul them hard.

This team always played best when the chips were down. If they play straight up on defense (let Howard get his) I think they can shut down the 3s.

As inconsistent as this year was I definitely think they have some pieces. Check this out. They have 2 players in the top 10 of the league and both got a lot of minutes (i.e. - it isn't off a small sample).

They should have been better but they can atone by stepping it up now.
