Game 61 Thread: PHI vs. MIN

Comment on HoopsHype forums

Even though he has dislocated his right pinkie finger in each of the last two games, Elton Brand insists that all is fine. Brand did concede there is some pain. Being out of the lineup would cause him more distress. When asked after Thursday's practice if it bothers his shooting, Brand said, "A little bit but it's the pinkie. I have definitely adjusted to it."

I feel good about this game. The Sixers will come back strong after the Dallas loss.

Hoping to see a Holiday/Meeks/Turner/Young/Speights lineup for long stretches tonight. Minnesota is the team to try that lineup against. I would also like to see Turner being given the ball in his hands for a lot of possessions.

The wolves are terrible, the sixers should pummel them

Did you catch the webcast?

I caught the tail end of a "GM" one - dude from the maple leafs was killing it and then watched the basketball analytics one - which was kind of not so good

Brook Lopez played 35 minutes and got two rebounds.

Wes Johnson had a couple of big games recently but has any of the top 10 picks, besides Turner, contributed to a possible playoff team?

The ten worst teams in the league in year x tend not to be playoff teams in year x + 1. However, the 10th pick (no coincidence there), Paul George, is on a playoff team, and has contributed more than Turner has.

anyone got a stream link to the game p2p is a no go

Tuned in a little late, was eric snow really saying Jodie Meeks was a key to the game?

Sluggish start here. No life in the arena either. Need an early timeout.

really dead in there..this team seems to enjoy playing in silence though

Don't really have a choice - fans have other dollar choices.

Besides, rango came out today - they're all seeing rango

come on Iggy.

Seems to be a habit that Jrue passes up the 3 for a long two.

We started out very similar to this the last time we played them. Hope the ending is the same.

Turner w/ his second good-looking J.

Nice to see Turner's shot is hitting.

But he was Speitght-esque w/ his non foul on that layup just given up.

How many minutes has Randolph been getting since they got him? Would hate for his breakout game to happen vs. us... not probable, but possible

Defense has been horrible...lets go guys.

Put Thad on Randolph and Speights on love please.

Man the wolves are active. I believe their oldest guy (by age) on the floor was just Lazar Hayward and he's a rookie

That was painful to watch. Wake up fellas.

Love on pace for a 40/30.

Inexcusable quarter, just no damn energy. Not picking on, but what the heck is Andre's deal? He's just off, and has had a few games where that's shown itself lately. That point-forward thing has nearly vanished.

You could almost say they look like they're off a back-to-back the last couple games, they look spent, or tired. No one attacking boards, not really attacking the defense (which has had its share of zone), just lifeless of sorts.

Sixers offense seems to be lacking an identity.

So true. I thought that point-forward thingie was the start of it, at least they tried to sell it as that it seemed.

Thad w/ runout!

Got the lead back, no looking back now? Like first game?

At what point does Doug Collins notice that the reasno the sixers have these first quarter issues is the piss poor rebounding.

5 offensive rebounds already for the wolves - come on

When he rotated over, I was literally stunned. One of the few times I've seen simple awareness from him.

How's Speights looking in the defensive effort department?

Dre w/ a swift pass to EB. He's been looking for him a lot tonight

Trip-Dub watch for Iguodala. It'll be a pathetic one though with the way he's shooting.

Andre does/can do so many other good things, just wish scoring would be even more of a consistent weapon from him. We're a tough beat when he gets his share.

Like when he just gave the slightest of a forward-dribble to get Meeks a look at a three.

This is the type of game where I would like to see Doug go in the locker room and rip them a half-good one. Just to make them aware that this will not cut it in the playoffs. Can't be depending on the bench bailing you out at that stage. Just a recipe for disaster.

Was it really that much of a better 2nd quarter? Looked more like the Wolves are just bad to me. Still up 7 is nothing to be upset about.

Just keep it up and finisn another one off.

EB is just bringing it.

The NBA should never schedule the Timberwolves as a Friday night game. Not a good draw. Make them a Tues/Wed game or something.

Dre has certainly rebounded from when I mentioned that he was looking off tonight, cause that has turned out not to be the case after the first quarter. Though not those previous games scattered throughout.

They're showing a graphic now that just makes me say why did those 6 games have to happen, just why? It seems it more years than not on those type of games to me, they always seem to happen to us most years.

That was the dumbest shot. Well, it wasn't as dumb as the one he missed with the game tied at 110. Still, you're up 1, the shot clock expires with 4 to go, and with 10.6 to go you pull up for three? And you're not a good shooter, you're one of the league's worst, Baron Davis?
