Game 10 Thread: PHI @ SAS

Spurs are 6-1. Great. How can we beat them in their house? The only way I can think of is if we have 3 guys go off on offense. I'm thinking Jrue, Iggy, and Speights. Speights has yet to break out on offense this year and I think he's about due. We all know he has it in him but will his defense be respectable enough to keep him in the game long enough to get in the flow.

Quote from Tony Parker:

"(Jrue Holiday) is a pretty good point guard, talented, he's young, so I'm definitely going to have to match his energy," Parker said. "He's been solid."

Holiday is going to be game planned more and more. I hope that he can rise to the occasion.

The Sixers have stolen some games from the Spurs- but Sam bothering Duncan probably had something to do with it.

Regardless of outcome, I want to see how Jrue and Evan Turn-over play.

Just joking about the nick-name. Zumoff called him that accidentally.

Does Turner get to chase Ginobli? He is learning fast what N.B.A. life is like. Looking forward to seeing Splitter, though he, like Jefferson last year, seems to be learning "pops'" way of playing slowly.

I like Turner's energy on defense a lot. The guy impresses me a lot on that end.

Initially I expected him to score more but be a slightly above average rebounder and an average defender, but he's been very active and willing on defense, willing to try to guard anyone (and not doing a very bad job at all).

He's contributing on that end of the floor as much as offensively at this time. When his offensive game falls into place we are gonna have a really good player.

But yea for today please let him chase Ginobili around, it's good experience for a rookie and apart from Iggy we don't have a better option cause we need Jrue on T-Park.

I'm totally expecting to lose this game. Just give it a good effort and keep it close. And give Turner his 35 minutes please.

Oh and Doug, please don't put a lineup out there without Jrue/Turner/Iggy out there. My temper cannot take it.

I wonder if Stefanski will be in the booth again. That cracks me up, I can see someone telling Thorn Eric Snow as sick and couldn't do the game, and him saying, "Eh, who cares. Let Eddie do it, he's got nothing else going on."

He is in the booth tonight I believe.

Weren't there a lot of threads about what Jrue's line would be this year. I know it's early but- 14, 7.5, 2 and 2. 40 percent on threes too. Jrue's assist to turnover ratio is 13th in the league too, which is a big criticism of his nationally. Seems a little overblown though. Even with me, my biggest pet peeve are his lazy TOs. Can you imagine if he cuts those out?

On one hand it's a small sample size, but it's an area of the season where we thought there could be growing pains. It wouldn't be crazy if he improved steadily as the season went on.

He had a really slow first three games. Check out his numbers since then. I really think like 18 and 9 is possible this year, and his ceiling is maybe 20/10, depending on the team around him and whether they gear themselves toward using a traditional point guard, which Collins seems more than willing to do so far.

Alrighty. I've got the San Antonio feed. They're talking about how Manu is leading them in scoring. If priority #1 is winning games, I'd put Iguodala on him. If you want to develop the young guys, this would be a nice test for Turner.

George Hill falling for the Lou jumper-foul move. Wonder if he falls for it again.

Thad and Nocioni in.

It looks like this unit has at least put the breaks on. Need to regroup at the end of the quarter, then get the starters back in there. See if they woke up a little.

Down by 11 after that start is not too bad.

i'm sure sean elliot is better than stefanski. i want to strangle him anyway, now i have to listen to his comments for 2.5 straight hrs?

I see one team who is trying to do a lot of stuff individually and another team that is moving the basketball.

Well said.

28-39 after one, and it could've been much, much worse than that.

They settled things toward the end of the 1st, need to build some momentum and cut into the lead in the second.

It would be great if they had one game that wasn't an uphill battle, huh?

Speights with the charge. Anybody see that one coming? I sure did... Obvious from the outset he was gonna go to that spin move. He would have been better off going right to the rim there.

Turner shoots too many jumpers, if he shoots at all. Would love to see him try to get to the hoop.

Alright, that Speights move ends it: STOP GOING 1 on 1!!!! Lou is the only guy at his best playing this way.

Get Jrue in the pick and roll.

Speights got one back :)

Thad really needed to get that d-board there. Ugly.

I'm watching the feed...and man, these spurs announcers are insufferable, aren't they?

Horrible.

They just spent a minute talking about how much the Sixers suck because they gave up an o-board, on the next possession, the spurs give up an o-board that turns into a three and they don't say a word.

And another o-board score for the Sixers. No word from Elliot.

7-point game, folks.

That is Brand's first rebound. I like what Nocioni has brought to the team this first 10 games..

What is it?

Starters have yet to attempt a free throw. Bench is 10/10.

Gotta give the 2nd team guys credit. I didn't think they played perfect basketball by any means, but they stopped the bleeding and held down the fort.

That's a good effort by Speights, Lou, Thad, and Nocioni.

52-61, Spurs.

It's not even jumpers with Iguodala. If he gets a piece of the paint with his drive, he can be much more crafty, and the fadeaways are much more makeable because his size is such an advantage.

He should make those fadeaways Lou-like pumps and at least get to the line. But he shouldn't be fading away to begin.

Yeah I agree, even though a fadeaway 8 footer isn't an awful shot as long as he's not out of control. Seems like he can use a lot of touch on that with his strength and size. Loved that last move though.

Yes, it annoys me when he just settles for the jumper. At least try to get in the paint, if only for a better look at the jumper. Sometimes he just pulls up and bricks it. That annoys the hell out of me.

Jrue with a trainwreck of a first half.

I only saw about 10 minutes or so of that half and Jrue was bad. The stats say he was worse.

Yup, he was terrible. Hopefully, he can bounce back in the second.

Jrue and Turner both had terrible first halves, on both ends. Need to see those guys make the adjustments, clear their heads, and contribute in the second half if the Sixers are going to have any chance.

Lou was very good and Iguodala's play at the end of the half was stellar.

Only 2 offensive boards for San Antonio. They missed 21 shots. That's an unbelievably good job by the Sixers on the defensive glass. If they did that last night, they would've won.

I think he's sending a message to Jrue for the careless play and value of the ball, and I think he's doling one out to Dre for the frequent jumpers. And a lack of D by both of 'em too.

For this game, fine. They both maybe needed to hear something, but saying it's a trend he needs to correct is wrong. Jrue had 13 assists and 1 turnover last night and his a/t ratio on the season has been very good.

for your 2nd fg of the game

Can't keep Bonner off the offensive glass :)

Seriously, look at how much time is left.....and then look at the score....ugh

Jrue padding stats while Quinn is guarding him.

God only 10 assists for the Sixers? That's pitiful, and so far out of line with what we've seen so far this year.

Guys, it's noble to hang in there. I'm right with you, but this is very reminiscent of recent teams no matter the personnel. Doug's finding that out too. They just don't grasp concept of team, and until they do they will struggle mightily.

I think they're playing well given the limitations of the roster. There's been a lot of fine team play.

yeah, fine team play equals a 2-8 record.

Yeah, it's a cheap shot to look at this game and say "see, they have no heart. They've never had any heart."

That was a goaltend, but whatever.

I mean, JK has reared his head.

Too bad Jrue wasn't in during the third when these shots could have meant something.

Well it was mentioned this morning would the team keep up the intensity and effort if they continued to spiral, looks like it will not tonight for sure. Hope it turns for the better. No life from anyone whatsoever, maybe EB but very scarce. They need to gel.

I kinda like the fact Collins is making them press full court in this situation.

Me too. Maybe it will create a sense of urgency.

why are they so bad in the 3rd quarter, every single game?

Mostly Spencer Hawes. Partially, other coaches realizing how bad they are on the inside and making adjustments.

Those are my guesses.

30 pt lead with 5 left. ugh....

Speights does a really good job drawing charges.

He sure does. Guess he's "tough" too.

Great job putting the mullet in for Turner cause he really fired up the team with his veteran toughness.

Ball-friendly Hawes update: 8 assists on the season, 9 turnovers.

Sam Dalembert in Sacto: 9 assists, 11 turnovers.

I hope this is the worst game I watch them play all year.

Jrue with 16 in garbage time. I'm giving Nocioni the player of the game for actually looking pissed off when they were getting their asses handed to them.

Spurs too many, the Sixers, not early enough.

Very apt description.

My wrap will be up eventually, going to try to wipe this one from the memory banks for a couple hours now.

Eagerly awaiting the wrap of this one. Glad I don't have to do it.

Does it seem Colloins is getting a shorter leash with Iguodala?

I personally don't think so. Iguodala was good tonight. Had he played his usual 40, he'd have have 20 and 16 on 14 shots.

I think he was just letting some of the guys who need to figure things out try to figure some things out.

Nah! He pulled him early third after that bad jumpshot with Ginobili guarding him one on one in the middle of a Spurs run. All they had to do was hang around like they did in the second and hope to make a run but he pulls his "best" player. That's like pulling you starting QB in the two minute drill for Rex Grossman.

Plus that's not the first time he's pulled Iguodala this year. Remember the Wizards game?

Maybe you are right.

I'll have to watch for it. I didn't see it as such, but maybe.

It would seem really silly to sabotage the team to make a point for a guy playing a great game who takes one ill-advised shot.

Sixers can't deal with the Spurs: http://ow.ly/39pe2

According to the box score, Jason Kapono was the only Sixerwith a positive +/-.

I hope you all have bottled water, canned food rations and a shotgun.

depressing. . .

you were so right about spencer hawes. i suppose if i had ever watched him play, i would have agreed.

...so maybe the close losses are this team's peak?

Could be.
