I guess he's not standing out as the bust of the class huh... Tom Moore on Jan 28 at 18:50 Reply +/- Video: Doug Collins pregame on Sixers' strong bench, Grizzlies without suspended Mayo: http://ow.ly/3Mjub GoSixers on Jan 28 at 19:02 Reply +/- Day off and still only gonna catch half the game - ah well Juan on Jan 28 at 19:05 Reply +/- Big game for both teams, luckly Jrue can set the pace GoSixers reply to Juan on Jan 28 at 19:08 Reply +/- As long as he doesn't get off to a shaky start and get immediately benched for 3- 4 minutes - sure Jason reply to Juan on Jan 28 at 19:10 Reply +/- I'm concerned about Jrue's handle, Conley is top 10 in the league in steals. eddies' heady's on Jan 28 at 19:08 Reply +/- Hope i'm wrong, but I sense that Memphis is going to beat us and expose our major flaws tonight. That, and a board meltdown after another loss:) Brian reply to eddies' heady's on Jan 28 at 19:10 Reply +/- I'll climb out on a limb and say you're predicting a bad game from Turner as well. GoSixers reply to Brian on Jan 28 at 19:11 Reply +/- If it's a good game - it won't really count eddies' heady's reply to Brian on Jan 28 at 19:15 Reply +/- eh, that really wouldn't be a prediction, just the norm. see you didn't bother with the outliers earlier, btw Brian on Jan 28 at 19:10 Reply +/- And we're off. Why does Hawes even bother going to midcourt for the tip? Another loss. Jason reply to Brian on Jan 28 at 19:12 Reply +/- lol, Hawes just tried to get position on the block against Zach randolph. Randolph pushed him 10 feet away from the rim. GoSixers on Jan 28 at 19:12 Reply +/- Wow Sam Young - that's embarssing Brian on Jan 28 at 19:13 Reply +/- Jrue with the jumper. Two possessions, two jumpers, though. Not happy w/ that. GoSixers reply to Brian on Jan 28 at 19:13 Reply +/- While not great - the memphis bigs better defensively than the raptors :) Brian on Jan 28 at 19:13 Reply +/- Twice Meeks has lost Sam Young. Brian on Jan 28 at 19:14 Reply +/- Nice charge by Hawes. Brian on Jan 28 at 19:15 Reply +/- God damnit, Meeks just should not be allowed to drive. It's pitiful. GoSixers on Jan 28 at 19:15 Reply +/- Officials seem to be allowing a lot of fouling of the sixers Brian on Jan 28 at 19:16 Reply +/- Sissy hook in the post. Sick. joeykey on Jan 28 at 19:16 Reply +/- ridiculous attempt by hawes. the sissy shake? GoSixers on Jan 28 at 19:16 Reply +/- Hawes is awful when he touches the ball and this game is ugly GoSixers on Jan 28 at 19:17 Reply +/- Pull Hawes now joeykey on Jan 28 at 19:17 Reply +/- hawes at the sissy elbow for the miss CB on Jan 28 at 19:17 Reply +/- Oh Meeks and SPENCAH, just killing me. eddies' heady's on Jan 28 at 19:17 Reply +/- If you're 7 ft shouldn't you not have to employ the fadeaway all the time? Brian on Jan 28 at 19:17 Reply +/- Heh. Iguodala's D > Gay's offense. Brian on Jan 28 at 19:18 Reply +/- Shit, is that two on Jrue? GoSixers reply to Brian on Jan 28 at 19:19 Reply +/- Nope - just one according to the broadcast GoSixers on Jan 28 at 19:19 Reply +/- Eric It's hard to understand how the refs are calling the game when there's a double standard Good - two fouls on Hawes? CB on Jan 28 at 19:19 Reply +/- Ughhhhh Meeks and SPENCAH eddies' heady's on Jan 28 at 19:19 Reply +/- 6 min from Hawes. Pull that rabbit out of the hat again Doug where he doesn't even come back in the game. Brian on Jan 28 at 19:20 Reply +/- 2/10 to start the game. I'd probably look to get Speights a decent shot on this possession. Need to see the ball go through the hoop. Jason on Jan 28 at 19:22 Reply +/- I haven't noticed this before, but after seeing him do well vs Deron williams, does Jrue struggle vs small speedy guards? off top of my head i think he gets into foul trouble vs them. GoSixers on Jan 28 at 19:23 Reply +/- Lou Williams - primary point guard - that's awesome Jason on Jan 28 at 19:23 Reply +/- Would love to see Pick and roll with Jrue and speights. Randolph struggles against the Pick and roll. Brian on Jan 28 at 19:23 Reply +/- Man, why is the offense so stagnant? eddies' heady's reply to Brian on Jan 28 at 19:24 Reply +/- no one's moving off the ball, they're just standing in nearly the same spots GoSixers reply to Brian on Jan 28 at 19:25 Reply +/- Those are the plays the coach is calling Brian reply to GoSixers on Jan 28 at 19:28 Reply +/- As far as I can tell, there aren't any plays. GoSixers reply to Brian on Jan 28 at 19:29 Reply +/- Like I said - those are the plays the coach is calling ;) GoSixers on Jan 28 at 19:24 Reply +/- So - all that success against Toronto - we're just going to ignore it Doug? Brian on Jan 28 at 19:25 Reply +/- Jrue for three! Of course, he was just standing in the corner waiting for it, not exactly good offense. It wasn't even off penetration. Jason reply to Brian on Jan 28 at 19:27 Reply +/- There was a pick and roll on that play. Speights was wide open in the lane there as well, Randolph stuck at the 3 pt line. GoSixers on Jan 28 at 19:27 Reply +/- Good god they just look awful Worse than the first quarter in Toronto even eddies' heady's on Jan 28 at 19:27 Reply +/- Great sprint and hustle by Dre to get to that bad outlet pass by MEM GoSixers on Jan 28 at 19:28 Reply +/- Nice pass Mo TS on Jan 28 at 19:29 Reply +/- Anyone else just see Lou get complete lost on that last defensive series? He had no idea where Conley was. eddies' heady's on Jan 28 at 19:30 Reply +/- I've been reserving judgment on whether we were even close to a mid-tier team, but these wins we've had since the road trip have been a facade to me. I think it has been just a product of the opponents are that sucky. And we've even struggled throughout games vs. them. Just an empty-wins feeling, sort of fool's gold thing. GoSixers on Jan 28 at 19:30 Reply +/- She works for Comcast? Those seats seems pretty sucky Brian on Jan 28 at 19:30 Reply +/- Sort of surprised we didn't see Thad or Turner come in during that timeout. GoSixers reply to Brian on Jan 28 at 19:31 Reply +/- Here they both come GoSixers on Jan 28 at 19:32 Reply +/- Nice dribbling - dumb pass atempt Evan GoSixers on Jan 28 at 19:33 Reply +/- Oh come on - I hate these refs Brian on Jan 28 at 19:34 Reply +/- Well, Speights is looking good. GoSixers reply to Brian on Jan 28 at 19:35 Reply +/- Already two fouls though Nice on that transition working at the offensive boards after the wild take by Evan Brian on Jan 28 at 19:35 Reply +/- Fucking Lou running the point exclusively. GoSixers reply to Brian on Jan 28 at 19:35 Reply +/- And Jrue on the court the whole time Isn't it awesome? Jason on Jan 28 at 19:35 Reply +/- Speights needs to calm down. Trying to do too much. GoSixers on Jan 28 at 19:36 Reply +/- GET THE GOD DAMN REBOUNDS What a waste of a defensive effort eddies' heady's on Jan 28 at 19:36 Reply +/- The way Speights is looking Doug has to go with Battie and let Spencer rot. He's finally playing motivated. Jason reply to eddies' heady's on Jan 28 at 19:38 Reply +/- I really like that Speights is giving a lot of effort. But he is on the verge of recklessness. Speights could have picked up his 3rd foul on that Marc Gasol rebound, was holding Gasol's jersey. GoSixers reply to Jason on Jan 28 at 19:39 Reply +/- He's also no better (or worse) really than Hawes defensively - they both are defensively useless but Speights does bring more offense...(though that shot sucked) eddies' heady's reply to Jason on Jan 28 at 19:39 Reply +/- Not talking specifics, just overall. GoSixers on Jan 28 at 19:37 Reply +/- Only down 3 after a quarter - could be a lot worse the way they were playing Brian on Jan 28 at 19:37 Reply +/- Pretty ugly first quarter offensively. Good defense, though. PHI 18, MEM 21 GoSixers reply to Brian on Jan 28 at 19:38 Reply +/- 70% of the defensive glass isn't good TS on Jan 28 at 19:38 Reply +/- Mike Conley just pulled two separate end of the quarter plays out of the Lou Will book. Dribble...dribble...dribble...nothing. Brian on Jan 28 at 19:39 Reply +/- 6/18 from the floor, only 2 assists. This isn't the type of offensive basketball we've been seeing from this team. I'm assuming Jrue goes to the bench here, too. GoSixers on Jan 28 at 19:40 Reply +/- Vasquez does Turner a favor GoSixers on Jan 28 at 19:40 Reply +/- Jesus Mo - at least make a god damn effort to block the shot joeykey on Jan 28 at 19:41 Reply +/- randolph is just nasty. GoSixers reply to joeykey on Jan 28 at 19:41 Reply +/- Not really hard when no one on the sixers plays defense TS on Jan 28 at 19:42 Reply +/- We might need Battie on Randolph. GoSixers reply to TS on Jan 28 at 19:42 Reply +/- Doug brings Elton back in for Mo to work on it Brian on Jan 28 at 19:42 Reply +/- Man, this is just ugly. GoSixers reply to Brian on Jan 28 at 19:43 Reply +/- but tied :) TS on Jan 28 at 19:43 Reply +/- I always feel bad for Iggy when they throw him the ball with 2 seconds on the shot clock and expect something to happen. GoSixers reply to TS on Jan 28 at 19:43 Reply +/- Not defending them - but he got the ball with six - got double teamed and no one came to help him out - Brian on Jan 28 at 19:43 Reply +/- They pretty much have to run off every defensive board, nothing happening in the half court at all. Nice pass/finish AI9 to ET. GoSixers on Jan 28 at 19:44 Reply +/- Here's a though - the grizz jump the passing lanes a lot - how about faking the pass - and then cutting behind the guy jumping for the steal - let's try that huh? TS reply to GoSixers on Jan 28 at 19:46 Reply +/- Here's hoping that's the halftime adjustment. Or hell even the out of the timeout adjustment. GoSixers reply to TS on Jan 28 at 19:48 Reply +/- Got 40+ game of film available on the grizzlies - you think someone would have noticed - i'm not much of a basketball strategist and it occurs to me :) Brian reply to GoSixers on Jan 28 at 19:49 Reply +/- I saw the cut once, Iguodala thought he had a lob. Jrue didn't throw it. Don't think it was really there, Young was a half step behind him. Brian on Jan 28 at 19:46 Reply +/- Yao Ming gets voted in. Cute. GoSixers reply to Brian on Jan 28 at 19:47 Reply +/- I'm surprise Yi Jianlian doesn't get voted in - he must have angered china Brian on Jan 28 at 19:47 Reply +/- There's a play. Lou for three. Nice. joeykey on Jan 28 at 19:48 Reply +/- Iguodala deferring to Turner. love the teamwork. Brian on Jan 28 at 19:48 Reply +/- MEM may want to stop trying to get the ball to Gay w/ Iguodala on him. I think that's three or four times the entry pass resulted in a TO because Iguodala was all over him (and Thad, on the last play). GoSixers on Jan 28 at 19:49 Reply +/- If I'm going to be number - I'd like to be number 7 Jason reply to GoSixers on Jan 28 at 19:49 Reply +/- Is this a movie series? If he dies does I am number five come out? GoSixers reply to Jason on Jan 28 at 19:51 Reply +/- Somehow I don't think he'll die - it's a 'book' (written for the movie in my opinion) for the mainstream appeal - the 'hero' doesn't die in the book like that - supposedly it is the first book in the series (i know too much about stuff like this) Jason reply to GoSixers on Jan 28 at 20:01 Reply +/- Looks like a piece of shit movie. I love lines like "I'm not who you think I am" and "You don't know what i'm capable of" Also since the first 3 were killed in order, is #6 immune? I see she is making an apperance, would that kill the whole "order" thing if she died in the movie? I am gaining interest in this movie by watching the same commerical 100 times+. eddies' heady's on Jan 28 at 19:49 Reply +/- Have we abandoned the cluster sets? The high ball screen? Down screens? Would be nice to hear Miller call out "3 down", wouldn't it? Meaning, just the call of a play. Xsago on Jan 28 at 19:50 Reply +/- 14 vs 0 in bench scoring already. The Sixers have got to use the huge advantage of having a better bench tonight. They just have to. GoSixers reply to Xsago on Jan 28 at 19:52 Reply +/- In general the sixers have the better scoring bench - they have the best scoring bench in the league (PPG at least) Brian on Jan 28 at 19:51 Reply +/- thad w/ a blown bunny :( Iguodala all over the place on D. joeykey on Jan 28 at 19:52 Reply +/- nice, Turner!!! eddies' heady's on Jan 28 at 19:52 Reply +/- Good look by Turner to EB. Brian on Jan 28 at 19:53 Reply +/- EB w/ the slam. Pretty pass by Turner. Looks like we're going to have to dismiss this game for Turner. Definitely an outlier. GoSixers reply to Brian on Jan 28 at 19:54 Reply +/- Outliers however is a good book Jason reply to GoSixers on Jan 28 at 20:13 Reply +/- I've only been able to get through half of the book. I'm at the War between the two west virginian families or wherever they were that took place a 100 yrs ago. Getting a bit repetetive with massive amount of examples and not a lot of points for me. Tray reply to GoSixers on Jan 28 at 20:17 Reply +/- No, no, terrible book. I went through a year of hearing about its stupid insights from my mother. How, shocker, class and education plays a role in whether brilliant children become Bill Gates or child prodigy flameouts. And then the racist nonsense about conformist Asian pilots who crash their planes because they're waiting for instructions from ground control. I just can't see how we needed a book to "prove," using the flimsiest anecdotal evidence ever slopped together in book form, the transcendentally obvious thesis that factors other than innate talent determine success. Not only transcendentally obvious, but at the margins, wrong. Like really, Mozart would be just another composer if not for his 10,000 meaningless hours of childhood composition? Gee, maybe the fact that he could write a symphony at the age of 5 suggests that he was destined for greatness, not that his writing at 5 was a necessary ingredient of his success that separated him from hundreds of equally talented geniuses. Jason reply to Tray on Jan 28 at 20:22 Reply +/- I agree with you to a certain extent. I am pretty sure that there was a book written years before outliers that says something similar, but seeing as how many people never realized the main point of the book, it has its place in the book marketplace. Also, I think you are missing the mozart point. I have a feeling that Gosixers might be writing a response to it so i will wait it out before responding. eddies' heady's reply to Brian on Jan 28 at 19:57 Reply +/- LOL! you love the heady's you know it :) GoSixers on Jan 28 at 19:53 Reply +/- That swap of Elton for Mo seems to have helped - or just coinkydink The memphis bench is bad though -= if the refs would call the game more balanced - maybe some Memphis starters would get a second foul on em GoSixers on Jan 28 at 19:54 Reply +/- Thad has GOT to learn some control when he's running Brian on Jan 28 at 19:55 Reply +/- Battie coming in. GoSixers on Jan 28 at 19:55 Reply +/- Evan - that was a very good Lou impression Don't do that again Brian on Jan 28 at 19:55 Reply +/- Sloppy. eddies' heady's on Jan 28 at 19:55 Reply +/- Shoot the damn ball ET. joeykey on Jan 28 at 19:55 Reply +/- dang rookie GoSixers on Jan 28 at 19:56 Reply +/- Battie in for Thad Brian on Jan 28 at 19:57 Reply +/- Nice, another three for Jrue. Good look by EB. joeykey on Jan 28 at 19:58 Reply +/- awesome!! love to see jrue kill it GoSixers on Jan 28 at 19:58 Reply +/- All the embarrassment of Brand and Battie turns into an open 3 for Jrue Brian on Jan 28 at 19:58 Reply +/- And another three by Jrue after the bigs miss about 5 bunnies but get the o-boards. eddies' heady's on Jan 28 at 19:58 Reply +/- Dag, Jrue's 3 buckets from deep, have all looked in a very good rhythm and stroke. Repeat that, kid. GoSixers on Jan 28 at 19:59 Reply +/- If the rebounding doesn't get better in the second half - this team is going to be stuck at '3' being the longest win streak of the season Brian on Jan 28 at 20:00 Reply +/- Sixers have 9 assists on their last 10 hoops, after 2 on the first 6. Big turnaround. GoSixers reply to Brian on Jan 28 at 20:01 Reply +/- Defensive rebounding drops below 67% with 1;35 left GoSixers on Jan 28 at 20:01 Reply +/- Stupid oddity - the things I notice :) Usually in a commercial for a chain restaurant you see 'prices higher in hawaii and alaska' for red lobster it's hawaii - and times square :) Tray reply to GoSixers on Jan 28 at 20:05 Reply +/- Why are the prices higher in the non-continental states? GoSixers reply to Tray on Jan 28 at 20:07 Reply +/- I always assumed it was the transit of the ingredients across the ocean to alaska and hawaii, when i was a kid it just made sense to me - gotta put stuff on boats to get there. More importantly - why the hell do people go to red lobster - i've adopted the - eat out less at better restaurants mentality Brian reply to Tray on Jan 28 at 20:08 Reply +/- Food is insanely expensive in Alaska. I think it's because a lot of the basic stuff has to be transported in. No idea about Hawaii. GoSixers reply to Brian on Jan 28 at 20:12 Reply +/- Would have to be transported in to hawaii too :) And I just checked it out - according to the red lobster site - no alaska locations :) Tray reply to GoSixers on Jan 28 at 20:06 Reply +/- And why don't more chains take advantage of Times Square's tourist traffic to overcharge? GoSixers on Jan 28 at 20:02 Reply +/- Why is Tony Battie taking shots? GoSixers on Jan 28 at 20:02 Reply +/- Lou that was a very stupid shot Give Sam Young some money Brian on Jan 28 at 20:02 Reply +/- Solid D by Turner on Gay, and another turnover on an entry pass to him. Brian on Jan 28 at 20:04 Reply +/- What do you think, Lou isolation to end the half here? Jason reply to Brian on Jan 28 at 20:05 Reply +/- If they called a timeout for a lou iso i'm rebelling. Jason reply to Jason on Jan 28 at 20:06 Reply +/- Great use of a timeout. Brian reply to Brian on Jan 28 at 20:05 Reply +/- Shocker, huh? That's what Collins drew up. Excellent. GoSixers reply to Brian on Jan 28 at 20:06 Reply +/- And Lou doesn't worry about being guarded by the guy 7 inches taller then him - he just forces the ugly shot attempt stoned81 reply to Brian on Jan 28 at 20:06 Reply +/- that was an awesome fadeaway GoSixers on Jan 28 at 20:05 Reply +/- Memphis averages 12.1 3's per game (lowest attempts in the league) but only 1 attempt so far CB on Jan 28 at 20:05 Reply +/- Ugh Lou. Brian on Jan 28 at 20:07 Reply +/- Much better second quarter, defense is still playing very well. If they could grab the defensive boards too, this would be a much more comfortable lead. PHI 44, MEM 40 bebopdeluxe on Jan 28 at 20:07 Reply +/- Collins called a 20 to draw up THAT? God...I can't wait until Turner is the guy taking that shot instead of Lou. GoSixers reply to bebopdeluxe on Jan 28 at 20:09 Reply +/- I can't wait until the sixers have a coach with a clue about how to use the players on the roster, since Doug still calls damn ass plays at the end of quarters focusing on the useless one. Put the ball in Jrue (or Evan's) hands and when they see Gay - they find the mismatch stoned81 reply to GoSixers on Jan 28 at 20:18 Reply +/- The whole league has figured it out too. Louis was double-teamed. There's really no way to explain Collins going to Lou for isolations at the end of every freaking quarter. Where is the media to ask him about that? GoSixers reply to stoned81 on Jan 28 at 20:25 Reply +/- Don't look at me - I'm waiting for the media to question a lot of Collins moves - and they aren't TS reply to bebopdeluxe on Jan 28 at 20:30 Reply +/- Meeks about to burst into flames----hopefully. Jason on Jan 28 at 20:07 Reply +/- Rudy Gay's Height/Length is why I love Perry Jones. Will be very angry if whatever team he ends up on uses him as a four. eddies' heady's on Jan 28 at 20:08 Reply +/- Sort of better 2nd quarter but still just blah-like. Better execution and anyone but Hawes starting is needed to reach the ultimate. Doug mostly played small that half. He needs to go bigger and get Speights and Battie more minutes. Tray reply to eddies' heady's on Jan 28 at 20:19 Reply +/- You should sell a t-shirt, "Hawes starting is needed to reach the ultimate." By the way, what do you mean by ultimate - being a kind of good team? eddies' heady's reply to Tray on Jan 28 at 20:24 Reply +/- I meant ultimate = win. eddies' heady's reply to eddies' heady's on Jan 28 at 20:22 Reply +/- This was meant in the sense that Brand and Thad being the frontcourt isn't going to end up well, and we really don't need to see Hawes stink it up again. Play Speights/Battie w/ EB. GoSixers on Jan 28 at 20:13 Reply +/- Defensive rebound rate after first quarter 70% Defensive rebound rate after second quarter 65% Might wanna work on that Jason reply to GoSixers on Jan 28 at 20:14 Reply +/- Tony Battie will fix this. GoSixers reply to Jason on Jan 28 at 20:16 Reply +/- We'll see It's a team thing - he can only help so much the way the sixers are rebounding - losing too many balls that 'bounce' off the shot. I wonder if Doug will again bench Hawes to start the second half Jason reply to GoSixers on Jan 28 at 20:17 Reply +/- I was being somewhat sarcastic. He may help the dRB%, but he will also hurt the sixers on Offense. GoSixers reply to Jason on Jan 28 at 20:18 Reply +/- Well if they give him the ball sure - i mean lou gave battie an entry pass on one offensive set - what the hell Tray reply to GoSixers on Jan 28 at 20:21 Reply +/- A boss has to know when to feed the post on occasion. Bosses delegate to talentless underlings. It's the mark of true bossiness. GoSixers reply to Tray on Jan 28 at 20:24 Reply +/- This and the youtube link Unknown skills busted out tonight son Tray reply to GoSixers on Jan 28 at 20:31 Reply +/- That's a great song. Unbeknownst to all of you, I used to have a rap blog. But I've really stopped listening, though not out of any despair about the state of rap, which I think is stronger than most give it credit for. eddies' heady's reply to Tray on Jan 29 at 2:31 Reply +/- It's a parody of its' former self. Slow, choppy, and unoriginal, uncreative, uninteresting hot air. Corporate labels should be ashamed of what they dictate to the masses as 'hot'. Rick Rubin, Lyor Cohen, and even Grandmaster Flash, I'm sure, are all ashamed, as am I. GoSixers on Jan 28 at 20:15 Reply +/- Turner +8 3-5 shooting 3 assists 3 rebounds 1 TO Some good defense when put on Rudy Typical Terrible eddies' heady's reply to GoSixers on Jan 28 at 20:18 Reply +/- superstar.

All in jest and fun....ha stoned81 reply to GoSixers on Jan 28 at 20:20 Reply +/- nastiness. and eddie's heady's opinion on it is supremely valued! bebopdeluxe reply to GoSixers on Jan 28 at 20:20 Reply +/- Dude...there is NO WAY that Eddie's Heady will be around to comment on that. Wait until he misses a shot or turns it over in the guts of a game. He'll be sure to show up then. Turner's handle is effortless...the way he pulled the rebound down, and when Conley went for the strip in traffic, he just walked away from him. As soon as he starts believeing that he can chuck up shots like Lou does, Meeks goes back to the bench. GoSixers reply to bebopdeluxe on Jan 28 at 20:22 Reply +/- I was impressed how he handled the ball in traffic earlier in the second (though he made a god awful pass) - he's going to get better - and I like what I see when I watch him play - no rookie is flawless - but you can see what Turner has if you look at him with out a jaundiced eye of hatred bebopdeluxe reply to GoSixers on Jan 28 at 20:26 Reply +/- What has to happen is when Turner is out there with Lou, Collins needs to call plays SPECIFICALLY FOR TURNER. FORCE him to shoot the ball. Because when he's out there with Jrue, Iggy, Lou and EB/Thad, he just sets up on the wing 25 feet away and never touches the ball. If he's gonna be the man, he has to KNOW that he can shoot the ball...and that is up to Collins. GoSixers reply to bebopdeluxe on Jan 28 at 20:27 Reply +/- I don't necessarily want a play that says 'shoot the ball' - i want a play that says 'shoot tthe ball if you have it - but find the open shooter if you draw a double. Evan and jrue are just smarter overall players than lou - lou is a scorer - and that's it GoSixers on Jan 28 at 20:23 Reply +/- Hawes back in to start the second Yes Doug - the starting 5 got bitchslapped in the first quarter - definitely bring that out again Brian on Jan 28 at 20:24 Reply +/- Hawes almost got above the rim on that fake follow dunk. Sick. Brian on Jan 28 at 20:25 Reply +/- Get a timeout if they take the lead here. Brian on Jan 28 at 20:25 Reply +/- There we go, Meeks. Brian on Jan 28 at 20:26 Reply +/- Great pass by Jrue to spring AI9 for the dunk. Brian reply to Brian on Jan 28 at 20:26 Reply +/- and another, this time to EB for the layup in transition. Quality basketball, all started by that turnover. GoSixers on Jan 28 at 20:26 Reply +/- Dear Mike Conley You can't get in Iguodala's way - don't embarasss yourself eddies' heady's on Jan 28 at 20:26 Reply +/- Good run. Let's go. Brian on Jan 28 at 20:30 Reply +/- If Meeks gets hot, this could be a laugher. eddies' heady's on Jan 28 at 20:30 Reply +/- Dre 3! eddies' heady's on Jan 28 at 20:31 Reply +/- Dre jumper. And free throw attempt! Brian on Jan 28 at 20:31 Reply +/- 15-2 run with Iguodala going to the line. Last game of the trip, it won't take much to get the Griz to call it a night. Keep your fucking foot on the pedal. TS on Jan 28 at 20:32 Reply +/- I like Dre as a 3rd quarter scorer like he has done the past couple of games. Brian on Jan 28 at 20:32 Reply +/- Great D on that possession. Love the pressure, don't let up. eddies' heady's on Jan 28 at 20:33 Reply +/- Getting stops on the regular, keep that up. Jo-3! Brian on Jan 28 at 20:33 Reply +/- Fuck, man. Another Jodie three. This is an explosion. AJ on Jan 28 at 20:33 Reply +/- And that, my friends, is why we keep playing Jodie Meeks Brian on Jan 28 at 20:33 Reply +/- JRUE!! TS on Jan 28 at 20:34 Reply +/- Remember when we used to be terrible in the 3rd quarter? I can get used to this. Brian on Jan 28 at 20:35 Reply +/- 20-point lead in the blink of an eye. Best part of the run, Hawes touched the ball once. Literally. Not counting that BS follow after the foul, he's touched it one time. eddies' heady's on Jan 28 at 20:35 Reply +/- Wow, another turnover. Get my hopes up again and off that teeter as I doubted them in thoughts earlier. They should do this every game, just play collective, aggressive D. Guess makes are good, too, but not sustainable, defense can be if you want it to. eddies' heady's on Jan 28 at 20:36 Reply +/- Hawes with the token slap-down. I'm 7 ft tall folks. joeykey on Jan 28 at 20:36 Reply +/- way to get fouled Spencer!!! Brian on Jan 28 at 20:37 Reply +/- Keep the pressure up on D even if the shots aren't dropping. Jason on Jan 28 at 20:37 Reply +/- Notice how well we play when Lou isn't on the court? stoned81 reply to Jason on Jan 28 at 20:40 Reply +/- good point joeykey on Jan 28 at 20:38 Reply +/- garbage into gold... eddies' heady's on Jan 28 at 20:38 Reply +/- Nice looking j from Dre and EB gets the put-back. ANother stip, bad pass by EB. Come on. None of that. eddies' heady's on Jan 28 at 20:39 Reply +/- Doug all on Thad, and he gets the bucket. Doug called him out twice I think. ha Brian on Jan 28 at 20:39 Reply +/- Hmmmn. Why the timeout, Doug? Jason on Jan 28 at 20:40 Reply +/- Watching Thabeet play is very entertaining. Jason reply to Jason on Jan 28 at 20:43 Reply +/- He runs like he has dual leg braces on. joeykey on Jan 28 at 20:40 Reply +/- do i hear the crowd at WF center? "nice...smooth...good." -E. Snow eddies' heady's on Jan 28 at 20:40 Reply +/- Don't the Griz look like us in the 1st and some of the 2nd quarters? Just standing around one on one stuff. We're moving the ball and off the ball now. Much more crisply. TS on Jan 28 at 20:40 Reply +/- Dre on pace for a trip-double. Tray reply to TS on Jan 28 at 20:43 Reply +/- On that note, I'd like to bust out my random stat of the note and note that Old Man McGrady, at the half, has 6 boards, 7 assists - and 1 point on 0-8 shooting. Apparently he plays as a sort of Magic Johnson point guard for them, which seems as good a use of his diminished skills as any. Anyway, he's been having very nice lines for a couple weeks now. TS reply to Tray on Jan 28 at 20:49 Reply +/- He's had some nice lines since he's been starting but he'll have a great night and then only play 10 mins the next b/c of tired legs. Screwed me in fantasy when I picked him up, lol. Brian on Jan 28 at 20:41 Reply +/- 18 straight points either scored by or assisted on by Jrue or Iguodala in that run. Just like last game in the third quarter, they just took turns picking the other team apart. stoned81 on Jan 28 at 20:42 Reply +/- A little credit to Hawes for that big run. He was being really aggressive, literally setting picks for every single player that had the ball. He was running all over the place, and it helped get open shots which contributed to the ridiculously high shooting % during that run. eddies' heady's reply to stoned81 on Jan 28 at 20:43 Reply +/- just asking - you weren't being sarcastic were you? stoned81 reply to eddies' heady's on Jan 28 at 20:48 Reply +/- nope Brian on Jan 28 at 20:43 Reply +/- Should get a nice long look at the beauty of Thabeet's game. joeykey on Jan 28 at 20:43 Reply +/- man...this is the first time i've heard a home crowd that was really into it since...i don't know when. AI maybe? Brian on Jan 28 at 20:44 Reply +/- Anyone else see that shot by Henry? joeykey reply to Brian on Jan 28 at 20:45 Reply +/- yea...real pretty eddies' heady's on Jan 28 at 20:44 Reply +/- No Marc didn't.....said the Sixers are "Lustyyyyy...!!!" from three tonight. wtf is he thinking, lusty?? Brian on Jan 28 at 20:45 Reply +/- Things have not looked crisp since he yanked Iguodala and Jrue, on either end. stoned81 on Jan 28 at 20:45 Reply +/- Anyone else excited for the upcoming Lou isolation?!?! eddies' heady's on Jan 28 at 20:45 Reply +/- Little more elbow extension ET. Just rimmed out on you... Jason on Jan 28 at 20:45 Reply +/- Please don't let Lou get hot in garbage time. I really don't want any fan reading the box score and thinking Lou had anything to do with this win. Brian on Jan 28 at 20:46 Reply +/- That hiccup at the end of the quarter didn't ruin it. GREAT quarter for the Sixers. PHI 73, MEM 57 eddies' heady's on Jan 28 at 20:47 Reply +/- Good IQ there my Marreese to 'bat' that ball when he realized he couldn't grab it, b/c the horn was ready to sound for the quarter. Good instincts. stoned81 reply to eddies' heady's on Jan 28 at 20:48 Reply +/- I agree TS on Jan 28 at 20:48 Reply +/- The big lead scares me a little bit, but hopefully once Jrue and AI9 get back in they'll pick up from where they left off. Jason reply to TS on Jan 28 at 20:49 Reply +/- Really, gonna get scared about a big lead? Prefer being up only 5? TS reply to Jason on Jan 28 at 20:50 Reply +/- Good point, lol. Jason reply to Jason on Jan 28 at 21:36 Reply +/- God damnit, I'm changing my fantasy name back to JinxedJason. Jason on Jan 28 at 20:48 Reply +/- Even Michael Lombardi from NFL network is talking about the sixers on twitter. "Are the 76ers on fire or is there something wrong with my TV--They are actually hitting 3's...gotta love it" Tray reply to Jason on Jan 28 at 20:50 Reply +/- Blake Griffin probably watches NFL Network. I bet he's getting excited by this NFL Network Sixers Twitter hype. Making plans to leave his crappy city for Philadelphia's balmy weather and awesome perimeter defense. Brian reply to Tray on Jan 28 at 20:57 Reply +/- Your two favorite budding "superstars", Griffin and Wall, are a combined 3-36 on the road this season. Just screams dominant, doesn't it? Tray on Jan 28 at 20:48 Reply +/- That felt a lot bigger than a 29-point quarter. I guess it was Marc getting all excited. And to be fair we did play a really great first six minutes. joeykey on Jan 28 at 20:50 Reply +/- leave darko alone! thabeet is in the league now!! Brian on Jan 28 at 20:51 Reply +/- Get Meeks and Iguodala back in there to bust the zone. eddies' heady's on Jan 28 at 20:51 Reply +/- Well he put Spencer back in and he turns it over. come on doug, if not Marreese then Battie at least. Sean on Jan 28 at 20:51 Reply +/- Hawes may be the softest player I've ever seen. eddies' heady's on Jan 28 at 20:52 Reply +/- Well, at least our crowd is doing the damn wave, cuz they sure don't seem to want to cheer. Jason reply to eddies' heady's on Jan 28 at 20:54 Reply +/- Heh didn't notice this. It's a philly thing, too lazy to stand up and cheer for the length of a game. The wave lets them stand up for a moment and make them feel like they were an active fan. eddies' heady's reply to Jason on Jan 28 at 20:58 Reply +/- :) i thought they were exercising or maybe stretching Brian on Jan 28 at 20:52 Reply +/- Damnit, Hawes. Grab the fucking ball. Collins needs a timeout. Jason on Jan 28 at 20:53 Reply +/- Man, the WFc just does not generate sound well, fans are making noise, just doesn't get loud in there. eddies' heady's on Jan 28 at 20:54 Reply +/- Zum: "Hawes is on clean-up duty..."....yeah, I wish he was over there holding the mop. Brian on Jan 28 at 20:54 Reply +/- I hate to say it, but why is Lou in the game right now instead of Meeks? Jason reply to Brian on Jan 28 at 20:54 Reply +/- stat stuffing. Brian on Jan 28 at 20:54 Reply +/- Nice hands, Hawes. Tray on Jan 28 at 20:54 Reply +/- So should we have taken Arthur over Speights? He seems like a less talented but way less nutty and lazy version. Jason reply to Tray on Jan 28 at 20:56 Reply +/- Yup. I'd prefer Arthur over Speights , I like consistency. eddies' heady's on Jan 28 at 20:55 Reply +/- Well not the mop but he had his fingers in the butter popcorn. they score again. come the eff on. Now a bad pass by Hawes. get him out and stunt their run DC! damn please TS on Jan 28 at 20:55 Reply +/- Meeks for Lou. Right now. Jason on Jan 28 at 20:58 Reply +/- dear god. Jason reply to Jason on Jan 28 at 20:59 Reply +/- This game isn't over. AJ on Jan 28 at 20:58 Reply +/- Whys is Hawes in the game?? Get Mo in there Brian on Jan 28 at 20:59 Reply +/- This is kind of pitiful. TS on Jan 28 at 20:59 Reply +/- WTF. Terrible call. eddies' heady's on Jan 28 at 20:59 Reply +/- Come on the eff on with the TO's ....shit this is far from over. eddies' heady's reply to eddies' heady's on Jan 28 at 21:25 Reply +/- harbinger of things to come AJ on Jan 28 at 20:59 Reply +/- Zone buster! Brian on Jan 28 at 21:00 Reply +/- I wonder if the red hot shooter could've helped earlier? Brian on Jan 28 at 21:00 Reply +/- Wake the fuck up. TS on Jan 28 at 21:01 Reply +/- Does Brand have butter on his hands? eddies' heady's on Jan 28 at 21:01 Reply +/- Jo-3! Oh how I wish he or anyone could be consistent with that shot, b/c we have the defense-drawers in Jrue and Dre. Freak, another TO. COme on Now they score again, 7 pt lead now....let's go, get Hawes out please Brian on Jan 28 at 21:02 Reply +/- Thank you, Jrue. Now show some balls on the defensive end, guys. Jason on Jan 28 at 21:02 Reply +/- For the love of god, they have thabeet in there. They should not be outscoring us. They are basically playing offense with only 4 players. eddies' heady's on Jan 28 at 21:02 Reply +/- Drer just smothered Conley. JRUE 3! and we give two back... Brian on Jan 28 at 21:03 Reply +/- Yes! Pretty break. GET SOME STOPS!!!!!!! joeykey on Jan 28 at 21:03 Reply +/- back to the bloodbath eddies' heady's on Jan 28 at 21:03 Reply +/- EB w/ the BS pass. Dre behind the back Slam from TYoung!\ put us on your back Dre! AJ on Jan 28 at 21:03 Reply +/- Elton Brand is make some really stupid passes tonight Jason on Jan 28 at 21:04 Reply +/- Please keep thabeet in. Sincerly, Sixers. TS on Jan 28 at 21:04 Reply +/- Brand has been involved with like 4 of the last 6 turnovers. Xsago on Jan 28 at 21:06 Reply +/- Hawes with 4 TOs and 4 PFs in 16 minutes. WOW!!! Brian reply to Xsago on Jan 28 at 21:06 Reply +/- DeMarcus Cousins-esque. Tray reply to Brian on Jan 28 at 21:08 Reply +/- Cousins rebounds and inefficiently scores with those turnovers and fouls too. eddies' heady's on Jan 28 at 21:06 Reply +/- Bear down, guys. Just finish. eddies' heady's on Jan 28 at 21:07 Reply +/- With a lead, that's not a pass that Jrue needs to force. There's no need for that in that situation. A turnover and they don't have to work for a bucket, but get freebies. Crucial come playoff time. Jason on Jan 28 at 21:08 Reply +/- Collins is sweating more than Hawes. Brian on Jan 28 at 21:08 Reply +/- Come on, Jrue. What the hell is going on w/ these turnovers? eddies' heady's on Jan 28 at 21:08 Reply +/- And Jrue w/ another unforced TO. sheesh. TS on Jan 28 at 21:09 Reply +/- Fuck me. I almost want Lou in the game. Almost. eddies' heady's on Jan 28 at 21:09 Reply +/- And Jrue w/ a forced shot-attempt, when he should have passed to EB, he was open on the pop. joeykey on Jan 28 at 21:09 Reply +/- what the shit Derek Bodner on Jan 28 at 21:10 Reply +/- might have been technically a block, but it may as well have been a turnover. one of the worst quarters of basketball all year. TS on Jan 28 at 21:10 Reply +/- Here come the terrible jumpers. eddies' heady's on Jan 28 at 21:10 Reply +/- Did that fucking wave from the crowd drown some of our guys? Brian on Jan 28 at 21:11 Reply +/- Fuck me. Two-point game with 2:11 left. Lou has been garbage tonight. Everyone else is turning the ball over like it's their job. No idea at all what to call here. No idea who to put in the game, either. stoned81 reply to Brian on Jan 28 at 21:12 Reply +/- You asked wtf Collins was thinking calling a timeout when the Sixers were on a ridiculous run in the 3rd. I might be wrong, but doesn't it seem like Collins' timeout woke up the Grizzlies? What was he thinking? Jason on Jan 28 at 21:11 Reply +/- What the hell. TS on Jan 28 at 21:11 Reply +/- Rudy Gay just murdered us. Mark that shit down. We're done. Jason on Jan 28 at 21:12 Reply +/- I hate lou and all. But give him the ball. Everyone else is dead, he's the only player that wakes up when given the ball. Brian reply to Jason on Jan 28 at 21:14 Reply +/- He's been shit tonight. Jason reply to Brian on Jan 28 at 21:14 Reply +/- Everyone else is shit as well. joeykey on Jan 28 at 21:13 Reply +/- gut check!! here we go!! TS on Jan 28 at 21:13 Reply +/- Collins should of known to keep the fucking gas on. They got sloppy, lazy, and undisciplined at the beginning of the quarter and carried it through the entire quarter. Brian on Jan 28 at 21:13 Reply +/- Collins looks like he's going to have a stroke. I feel the same way. eddies' heady's on Jan 28 at 21:13 Reply +/- Come on, show some heart and encouragement like Doug. Let's go, still finish this. Xsago on Jan 28 at 21:13 Reply +/- Honestly i'd give the ball to Iguodala right now. Jason on Jan 28 at 21:14 Reply +/- The difference in this game is sam youngs score on himself. Brian reply to Jason on Jan 28 at 21:14 Reply +/- Not anymore. joeykey on Jan 28 at 21:14 Reply +/- let's see what this young team can do. eddies' heady's on Jan 28 at 21:14 Reply +/- Son of a ...... this can't be happening....at home? TS on Jan 28 at 21:15 Reply +/- Game over. stoned81 on Jan 28 at 21:15 Reply +/- Turner played a good first half. Why was he benched for almost the whole second half? Brian on Jan 28 at 21:15 Reply +/- Excellent. Jason on Jan 28 at 21:16 Reply +/- C'mon lou hit these two. Wake this team up ffs. eddies' heady's on Jan 28 at 21:16 Reply +/- They still bite on the Louwill pump fake. He doesn't trust Marreese though, put in Battie. Brian on Jan 28 at 21:16 Reply +/- God damnit. God fucking damnit. joeykey on Jan 28 at 21:17 Reply +/- shaky as hell AJ on Jan 28 at 21:17 Reply +/- We're done TS on Jan 28 at 21:17 Reply +/- Rudy Gay is an assassin and my head just fucking exploded. Unbelievable. Tray reply to TS on Jan 28 at 21:20 Reply +/- I bet Gay has pretty decent clutch numbers this season. Jason on Jan 28 at 21:18 Reply +/- Hey arena guy in charge of music. Stop with the fucking music. eddies' heady's on Jan 28 at 21:18 Reply +/- Wow, Jrue claps his hands in disgust b/c Lou works his way into two defenders....and get his hands on it but turns it over....sheesh Tray on Jan 28 at 21:18 Reply +/- 'Fire Burning (On the Dancefloor)' is a really appropriate song here, team DJ. joeykey on Jan 28 at 21:18 Reply +/- hahaha we got fucking murdered tonite. Brian on Jan 28 at 21:19 Reply +/- I believe we've gotten 9 shots up in this entire quarter. More turnovers than FGA. TS on Jan 28 at 21:19 Reply +/- Our guys just don't want it. Jason reply to TS on Jan 28 at 21:20 Reply +/- It's not a matter of want. Once the sixers stopped creating turnovers that led to fast break points they were hopeless. Just no half court offense in this team. eddies' heady's on Jan 28 at 21:20 Reply +/- Man what an unexplainable collapse. I can't say it's on the coach either, he's not out there handing it to the other team like charity. Just minor league-ish. stoned81 reply to eddies' heady's on Jan 28 at 21:23 Reply +/- Turner had 17 assists to 1 TO in his last several games. he was the only guy consistently not losing the ball, and he was the guy who got benched in the 4th quarter. collins deserves blame TS on Jan 28 at 21:20 Reply +/- Why we stopped feeding Meeks when he was on fire, I'll never know. eddies' heady's on Jan 28 at 21:20 Reply +/- Come on . FOUL....extend the game...we're within two Brian on Jan 28 at 21:20 Reply +/- Why did the clock keep running for like 3 seconds after that shot fell? TS reply to Brian on Jan 28 at 21:21 Reply +/- I saw that too. They better reset that shit. eddies' heady's reply to Brian on Jan 28 at 21:22 Reply +/- saw that too. and they don't look at it...damn Jason reply to Brian on Jan 28 at 21:23 Reply +/- Just rewinded, absolutely no reason for it to run that long. 2 full seconds came off that clock after the shot went in. Brian reply to Jason on Jan 28 at 21:29 Reply +/- Home court advantage. Tray on Jan 28 at 21:22 Reply +/- Now it's time for Enrique Iglesias's 'Baby I Like It,' obviously. Jason reply to Tray on Jan 28 at 21:25 Reply +/- God damnit, play a motivational clip. Something that gets the crowd into it. I Haven't been to a game at the WFC, but i know they have some clips that get the crowd on their feet. Tray reply to Jason on Jan 28 at 21:27 Reply +/- I was thinking more along the lines of depressing music to make our players feel guilty for throwing away the game. Not so much corny 90s party jams. eddies' heady's reply to Jason on Jan 28 at 22:07 Reply +/- I was thinking, "Move the Crowd" by Eric B. and Rakim. Tray reply to Tray on Jan 28 at 21:26 Reply +/- And now 'Gettin Jiggy Wit It'! eddies' heady's on Jan 28 at 21:25 Reply +/- Come on!!! how does that not go down for Dre? man............... Brian on Jan 28 at 21:25 Reply +/- Heh. That ball was 7/8 of the way down. Unfuckingbelievable. I hate sports. Derek Bodner reply to Brian on Jan 28 at 21:27 Reply +/- Meh. Ball don't lie. TS on Jan 28 at 21:26 Reply +/- Fuck me. In and out. And tomorrow he'll get all the blame. AJ on Jan 28 at 21:27 Reply +/- Second worst loss of the season, after the Orlando loss. We had a huge lead. For some reason, Meeks didn't see the ball more and Turner didn't play in the last 8 minutes. And lets not forget that fucking Spencer Hawes was in the court during the 4th quarter for like 5 minutes. THISCLOSE to a 4-game winning streak. FUCK. Derek Bodner reply to AJ on Jan 28 at 21:29 Reply +/- Turner did play in the final 8 minutes. He was in for one defensive possession. TS reply to AJ on Jan 28 at 21:30 Reply +/- Hawes, Brand, and Jrue had a turnover contest going at one point. Ugly. Why are we so snakebit? And why the fuck didn't Turner play more? TS on Jan 28 at 21:28 Reply +/- Battie!?! Tray on Jan 28 at 21:29 Reply +/- That went in, but what is Lou doing (a) not shooting himself, and (b) passing to a guy who's hit 11 threes in his 14-year career? Jason on Jan 28 at 21:29 Reply +/- Raise Your glasS! Jason reply to Jason on Jan 28 at 21:30 Reply +/- Meh, maybe another song, but still pink, I don't know my pop OMFG WTF JODIE!!!!. Tray reply to Jason on Jan 28 at 21:31 Reply +/- A song whose message is that its listeners should take life less seriously, as they will never be anything more than "dirty little freaks." Maybe next he'll play 'Don't Worry, Be Happy.' eddies' heady's on Jan 28 at 21:29 Reply +/- No friggin way!!@@@??? William on Jan 28 at 21:30 Reply +/- Crazy!!!! A 21 point lead. Growing pains. Brian on Jan 28 at 21:31 Reply +/- I'm not biting on this. My heart has already broken once in this game. AJ on Jan 28 at 21:31 Reply +/- BRAND FOR JRUE??????????? AJ on Jan 28 at 21:32 Reply +/- Of course this was gonna happen Brian on Jan 28 at 21:32 Reply +/- Why? Why the fuck run that fucking play? You had plenty of time to get the ball down the court for a fucking three. Why the motherfucking motherfucker would you do that? Sean on Jan 28 at 21:32 Reply +/- Unforced turnover...fitting end. eddies' heady's on Jan 28 at 21:32 Reply +/- Wtf is THAT! we had 6 seconds on the damn clock and you throw a desperation heave out of bounds like it was 1.5 sec left? 22 TO's damn.............. CB on Jan 28 at 21:33 Reply +/- That, my friends, is what mediocre teams do. Losses like these make me want to jump on the nuke it bandwagon. Jason on Jan 28 at 21:33 Reply +/- Well, Battie saved us with the 3, then killed us with that turnover. tk76 on Jan 28 at 21:33 Reply +/- This will keep happening until they get some experience and leadership on the floor. TS on Jan 28 at 21:33 Reply +/- Ha. Battie got the hook, lol. Jason reply to TS on Jan 28 at 21:34 Reply +/- lol Brian on Jan 28 at 21:34 Reply +/- I've completely lost track of the rotation chart, by the way. No fucking idea how I'm going to sort it out either. GoSixers reply to Brian on Jan 28 at 23:03 Reply +/- Watch the rerun or check out the game log ;) I'll help you out if serious BTW - defensive rebounding ended up at 22/37, which is worse than the 65% it was at half time, rough math calls it slightly under 60% REBOUND THE FUCKING BALL Tray on Jan 28 at 21:34 Reply +/- I think we can stop talking about our late-game losses being the product of really bad luck. Brian reply to Tray on Jan 28 at 21:50 Reply +/- Yeah, this is definitely what happened every other time. You hit the nail on the fucking head. AJ on Jan 28 at 21:36 Reply +/- The best part of that last possession (apart from the Battie HR pass - moron)? Doug Collins TAKING JRUE HOLIDAY OUT. First off, I understand the need for another rebounder in case Randolph missess the free thrown. BUT, Jrue is your PG, thus he is your best/safest bet to handle the ball quickly down the court. And he was 4-5 from 3 in the game!! Other than Meeks, who shot 5-7, no one else made more!! I know we should've never been in that position, and we blew the lead, blah blah...but come on. That is some motherfuking basic stuff. It's those type of things that make me want to beat collins up. stoned81 reply to AJ on Jan 28 at 21:45 Reply +/- Seriously, how does that happen? Xsago on Jan 28 at 21:37 Reply +/- Collapse of EPIC proportions!!! This is just inexplicable someone should get a DNPCD for this next game. stoned81 reply to Xsago on Jan 28 at 21:50 Reply +/- Lou????? Rich on Jan 28 at 21:38 Reply +/- Oh man, Battie with some late comic relief. Does that happen with any other team in this league? I am really pissed off with three people: 1. Hawes- He fueled the comeback with TO's. 2. Collins- Why the hell was Hawes playing? 3. Jrue- Really dissapointed that our PG of the future was so lax with the ball protecting the lead. I'll probably get killed for this, but he's gotta show leadership and take control of the team. Didn't happen. Such is life. There are a bunch of other goats (How about making a late game FT, Lou), but just a total team collapse. Story of the year. I hope you guys can keep hangin in there, I keep telling myself there will be a payoff. I also hate basketball. Jason reply to Rich on Jan 28 at 21:52 Reply +/- Lol, finding a way to blame JRue for this loss. Ok sure. Rich reply to Jason on Jan 29 at 0:02 Reply +/- Look, Jrue is the main guy we have interest in. I said I was dissapointed in him, clearly not even close to all his fault. He was awful in the 4th quarter though, right? Bad turnover, bad shots, etc. I love the kid, but that 4th quarter was really bad. Btw, I hate Hawes. Despise him. Jason reply to Rich on Jan 29 at 0:09 Reply +/- I need to rewatch the start of the 4th, I was busy doing the wave from my couch. Jrue may have been awful, but let's not blame him, don't speek ill of his fourth quarter performances, just hope he gets better and hope he continues getting the ball. Like with a kid that is going through personalities on a daily basis, you don't mention the emo/goth phase, you stay silent and pray to god it doesn't stick. Brian reply to Rich on Jan 28 at 21:54 Reply +/- Jrue was terrible in the fourth. No other way to put it. He wasn't alone, but he was terrible. TS on Jan 28 at 21:38 Reply +/- How many fucking points did they score in the 4th? Like 42? eddies' heady's on Jan 28 at 21:39 Reply +/- Excuse me please....but I have to laugh.... board meltdown....................mf'er stoned81 reply to eddies' heady's on Jan 28 at 21:46 Reply +/- I laughed at the Battie pass. Impossible not to. stonedeightytoo reply to stoned81 on Jan 28 at 21:49 Reply +/- That was the stupidest thing. Absolutely no need for it, in that moment. Shit, Marreese knew sense of time earlier in the game, should have maybe had his ass in...that was seriously boneheaded as hell TS reply to stoned81 on Jan 28 at 21:49 Reply +/- That pass was like the one Jrue threw straight to Garnett in that first Celtics game. Only worse. Much, much, worse. eddies' heady's reply to stoned81 on Jan 28 at 22:15 Reply +/- ha, what else could you do? stoned81 on Jan 28 at 21:40 Reply +/- I think my advice to Doug C. would be, If your team is turning the ball over every single possession, it might not be a good idea to bench your #2 pick who had 1 turnover in his prior 6 games. Alvin on Jan 28 at 21:41 Reply +/- Fuck this team. Seriously. Fuck it. TS on Jan 28 at 21:44 Reply +/- I can justify this only if NY, DET,the bucks and the bobcats all lose. And that won't happen. GoSixers reply to TS on Jan 28 at 23:05 Reply +/- That comment makes little to no sense stonedeightytoo on Jan 28 at 21:45 Reply +/- Only us. just another Sixer game its numbin Xsago on Jan 28 at 21:47 Reply +/- I've never seen a team turn the ball over 12 times in a single quarter before. NEVER. Unbelievable. joeykey on Jan 28 at 21:50 Reply +/- that was disheartening. James on Jan 28 at 21:51 Reply +/- Well played by Memphis, who were able to somehow secretly butter up the hands of the entire Sixers team during the break. That's the only rational explanation for the abysmal performance in the 4th. Surely. Brian on Jan 28 at 21:52 Reply +/- Lou was terrible tonight, 2/9 from the floor, key missed free throw, and I'm giving him the player of the game anyway because he didn't have a turnover. Fuck everyone. Fuck sports. Fuck life.
