I am glad Marreese is playing because otherwise Elton would be out at the 3 pt. line chasing Sheed. Hopefully Elton gets 30 minutes minimum tonight.

what do you guys think, start speights or lawson in fantasy tonight? sounds like speights will play but lawson will get minutes with billups out

Factor in opponents as well though - how is lawson going to do against chris paul compared to the amount of offensive he'll bring against the rest of the hornets defense.

If Lawson is starting i'd go with lawson over speights

for some reason it says anthony carter is starting, but i'm sure lawson will still play like 30 min. i feel like speights will either not play as much or be less effective after aggravating his injury

Boston broadcaster said "dalembert's a good shotblocker, you have to either step away from him or go by him" that's exactly what you should do if you want your shot to get sent back to the 3rd row. Gotta go right at the body.

Court_visioN on Dec 18 at 19:57

the Sixers need to start their offensive sets earlier. This crap passing the ball around the perimeter isn't helping their cause at all. Add that to the fact that the play you run is a postup for Dalembert and you get a wasted possession and a forced shot by Iguodala.

Tough reverse lay-up that he tried to spin in over Perkins. Would have liked a kic. 0/5 and our offense sucks right now.

Thad and Sam getting killed on the boards. And here comes EB and Speights. I'd tell them to take Willie out but to have Iguodala at the 2 and Young at the 3 is preposterous -_-

Brand, Speights and Ivey in. Too bad that Willie is too. He's already taken two bad jumpers and had a defensive lapse.

EB has Williams on him. Scored on his first touch ride him. Willie for three, down 5.

nice block by willie

That call may have been good, but Pierce never is called for a block in the Garden.

0 fouls on Boston in the first, shows that we're jacking jumpers. Down 24-17 after one, it could have been worse.

getting killed on the boards 20-10 after 1, shocking

I like this lineup haven't seen it before, ivey and holiday are the best guard defender our best offensive bigs and kapono the shooter

Jrue back in, Kapono him and Ivey are the 1-3 now. Speights goes at Sheed. Good. If Speights and Brand our the bench bigs, they can do damage against Shelden and Sheed.

Holiday playing like a 19 year old

Turnover going baseline and leaving his feet. Sub with his third foul. Real tough start for the rook, hope he doesn't get discouraged.

EB's got it going on, 3/3 for 6. He's probably touched it 5 times as well. Come on guys that's a mismatch.

does anyone knows if we trade brand and dalembert would we have enough to offer a maximum contract?

What's the point? As long as we have Eddie Jordan as coach and Willie playing 30 mins a game we will be insignificant.

we'd have to take back an obscene amount of money to make that work, since both brand & sam make so much, so unless it's an expiring contract probably not

I think the blazers and rockets would like a big but I dont know how it can be done with the players. T mac is earning a lot so for only one of those players it can't be done, I hope something happens

i'm sure the sixers have offered both for Tmac, and daryl morey laughed in stefanski's face. houston has like $20 mill coming off the books this summer in mcgrady so why would they trade him?

The Celts have a crazy amount of attitude that involves complaining for calls, but that swagger gives them an identity.

user-pic
JohnEMagee reply to Rich on Dec 19 at 11:32

Complaining about calls isn't swagger

The celtics have a defensive startegy that involves committing fouls almost the entire game and instead of calling it the refs let them get away with it, hence people think they are 'good' defensively but it's just a case of bad officiating and why people think the NBA is 'rigged'

Iguodala bouncing the air out of the ball...the game is gettin away from us

So the Raptors are currently doubling up on the Nets, 70-35. I think that would be a record in scoring margin as measured by ratio if it held.

I think Iggy is pounding the ball a little too much, but this is his first game since Iverson came back as the main playmaker with the ball in his hands a lot.

EB is really the only person who has played a positive basketball game so far. Maybe Thad a little too.

The contract for the 50G "will be paid in a 50 year margin"

This has been a gigantic ass-kicking on the boards tonight unbelievable.

Speights is a step slow and rusty, but he's still pretty aggressive and good. The FT shooting has been bad to start tonight though.

Down 11 at the half. I may need to give up my computer, but this could have been a lot worse. Speights and Brand have kept it as close as it is.

Don't get too down on EJ everyone, sure hes a terrible coach with dreadful rotations and a complete disregard for defense...but...we have a lot to look forward to. Jordan will probably be getting his braces off soon...you don't want to miss that now do you?

A Dalambert/Brand/Speights/Young/Igoudala lineup would be interesting.

also him coming of the bench has being better for him, Brian should do a post about the numbers by minutes brand has put coming of the bench and as a starter

That's not an excuse to not start him. We stink at the beginning of both halves because Brand is on the bench, and we're always forced to play catch-up.

Sometimes great players come of the bench and is for the best..ex. jason terry, manu ginobli,aaron mckie, and it goes on and on the best 5 players don't have to be in the starting lineup

Yeah but they end up getting 35 minutes. When's the last time Brand has?

did any of those players have 6 career 20/10 seasons?

Yes, just imagine. So sad we don't have a coach.

this is the really sad thing. If Stefanksi would fire Jordan today, the Sixers would make the playoffs, not a doubt in my mind. They're only 4 games behind Charlotte, and Charlotte is garbage.

Some very good positives also at the end:

1. Thad defended Ray Allen tough after the game.

2. Brand got the put back.

3. AI9 played very good defense on the last play.

4. Good overall good team win!

I was saying on twitter that Call on Garnett was BS. If the Sixers ever deserved to win a game it was this one. How fitting that out much maligned PF tipped in the winning shot against a tough rebounding team. Unreal.

Dean Harner reply to Rob_STC on Dec 18 at 22:22

Without doubt it was a phantom call. but what do you expect in Boston? The refs do everything they can to help the Celtics win.

i'm just astounded by brand and speights's numbers. 23 pts and 8 boards for brand in 26 minutes. 17 pts and 10 boards for speights in 22 minutes.

those per minute numbers are just plain ridiculous.

i feel bad for the celtics though. they lost to a team that played willie green for 45.5 minutes!

those numbers are insane. Start both of 'em.

A team that has enough talent to beat a streaking Boston in Boston while not actually playing very well and being hamstrung by their own Coach...

Mixed emotions indeed.

Finally, a close win! Over the (or 2nd) best team in the NBA to boot! Hey, Eddie Jordan, see what happens when you play Elton Brand? Um, good things.

Wow, can't believe we overcame the rebounding and that call on KG late tonight. Absolutely brutal. Great job by EB, Speights, and Iggy down the stretch. Man, we actually defended alright tonight too.

Great win. We NEVER win those games, good to see it finally happen.

Maybe it's the mustache...

That wasn't really Eddie Jordan tonight, that was his twin brother Teddie.

I'll let you figure out which one's the evil twin.

Hey guys, just got back from the game, absolutely awesome! I'll write more later maybe, but I just wanted to share one anecdote for now that you all will relate to. With 7.7 seconds left and the Sixers up by 1, my and friend and I (both Sixer fans) were wondering what the Celtics were going to get. My friend joked, "I just hope it's a contested 3" (meaning that we were both expecting a wide open 3 by Ray Allen). Lo and behold, Iguodala played great defense on Pierce, didn't go for the fake handoff, and forced a tough jumper. And when the rebound went long, right to Ray Allen? I was sure the ball was going in (it's the type of shot we've seen hit against the Sixers time and again the last two years) ... but they finally caught a break and it missed. My friend and I got to walk out of the stadium supremely satisfied to be in the midst of 18 thousand disappointed Celtics fans, two bitter Sixers fans who could be happy for at least one night.

must have been awesome getting to see the sixers win in boston. and yea, i'm sure every philly fan watching that game was expecting allen's shot to drop through the net.

I was actually praying it was after the buzzer when it left his hand, because I was positive it was dropping.
