Game 64 Thread: PHI vs. OKC

Hmmm....75 minutes until game time, most of office setting up trade show in anaheim - how early can i leave?

Tom Moore on Mar 9 at 18:30

Video: Collins pregame on the Sixers battling fatigue, as well as the Thunder and Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook:


Saw this on Twitter, goes in the category of "duh":

PHL/OKC pregame: Collins says Iguodala will shadow Durant everywhere. If Durant shifts to PF, Iguodala will follow him.

I'll be catching the game late. Hope its a good one.

We need to get the victim list up on Iguodala's locker- Ocho Cinco style:


tk76 reply to tk76 on Mar 9 at 18:58

"Who's kissed the Iggy in '10/'11?"

Also decided to give Durant the night off from City Line Chili's. Would be great if he plays terrible.

tk76 reply to Rich on Mar 9 at 18:55

Wow, that is commitment. I wouldn't bench a guy just because he is playing the Sixers- or are you counting on an Iggy lockdown.

Rich reply to tk76 on Mar 9 at 18:56

Little bit of both.

Rich reply to tk76 on Mar 9 at 18:57

I still have Westbrook going.

Court_visioN reply to tk76 on Mar 9 at 20:22

i typically bench players playing against the Sixers as well. Fantasy sports should never interfere with being a fan.

is Durant really only 6'9? looks taller.

They were saying he's 7' during the worlds. Actually, it was Iguodala who was saying it.

This is the toughest matchup Iguodala will have all year imo.

Only because Nocioni is ON the same team

Fair point. Marakovitz doing a voice-over report. Good directing.

Is it just me or does Andre Iguodala look a little like he's about to eat coach K in that picture?

eddies' heady's on Mar 9 at 19:07

Been waiting with extreme anticipation all day for this one. Let's go Sixers!

Looks like a good crowd.

LET'S GO!!!!!!

eddies' heady's on Mar 9 at 19:10

Yes, early arriving crowd tonight. Hope they're into it.

Hawes wins the tip.

EB in the lane over Ibaka, good!

Is Hawes sporting an Eric Montross doo?

eddies' heady's reply to Brian on Mar 9 at 19:13

That or a Greg Ostertag.

eddies' heady's on Mar 9 at 19:12

Jrue 4 3!

Jrue 3, turnover Durant. Keep pushing it.

Stop giving the fucking ball to Hawes.

Iguodala steal, Jodie 3!!!!1

eddies' heady's on Mar 9 at 19:13


Durant crying for a foul and heaving a shot!

Jrue to Sissy for the layup.

12-2 start. Timeout OKC baby!!!!!!!

Jo(3)dee Meeks


eddies' heady's on Mar 9 at 19:15

Jodie mixing it up w/ the tip of a rebound, igniting a fast break. Authoritative finish by Dre!! Let's go, what a start!

Ibaka fouled Iguodala on that dunk.

lol hawes, if you didn't make that.

Now that's how you start a game :)

Sick D by Jrue on Westbrook, then the turnover for a Durant dunk. Fuck.

Spencer feeling it o boy

Sissy three! where's stoned81?

Spencer Hawes makes a 27-foot three-pointer from the top of the arc. Assist: Andre Iguodala

Junk PUnch

Actually like the hard foul by Sissy too. Wish he'd stop getting shots, though.

That's how you foul Spence!!

Come on, run the offense.

Ugh. Collins timeout. 9-3 Thunder run.

Spencer Flaws on Mar 9 at 19:20


That's a bad mistake by Jrue. Why leave your feet on a Westbrook three? That's usually out of his range.

Thought the same thing. Chasing guys off the three-point line is a team philosophy, though.

Too many 3 attempts - get inside on these boys

Man, it'd be a great night for Iguodala's jumper to be on.

Can't let Westbrook split like that.

Why is Hawes still in.

eddies' heady's on Mar 9 at 19:22

Damn, Jrue's struggling mightily early w/ Westbrook. Somebody has to communicate on these screens they're setting

Meeks three! Off dribble penetration. Durant three to answer.

Wait was that a two for Durant?

I think ET might be able to check Westbrook a little better than Jrue.

JRUE. More of that.

Sorry Iggy, Durant is not going on your list slugger.

Jrue seems to be complaining more.

damnit, 2nd time tonight i've messed up posting.

Not so far, that's for sure.

Weak foul by Speights.

Not a good start on Durant and Westbrook.

Jrue looks on. Let's go.

Meeks three!

OH good - Lou is in

Collins put him in when Maynor came in. Wants Jrue on Westbrook the whole way, I think.

Yes, but honestly, I'd rather he put turner in while iguodala is in than lou :)

Speights with the big block on Harden.

Spencer Flaws on Mar 9 at 19:31

Speights gettin' up?

eddies' heady's on Mar 9 at 19:32

These two ads above the comment box take so long to load along w/ the personal info:( damn espn and tiqIQ..

Are you getting 'logged out' periodically during a game thread and having to sign back in?

eddies' heady's reply to GoSixers on Mar 9 at 19:36

No just been slow since this 2nd ad was added right above the comment box.

Turnover #3 for Durant.

Man, Lou w/ a terrible shot for the 2 for 1. But banks in the three. Wow.

Boss shot.

And Maynor falls for the oldest one in the book. Double wow.

eddies' heady's on Mar 9 at 19:35

Gonna have to get more frequent stops esp with the benches in, these three's we're making aren't going to last. So vital to extend any lead we have when KD and Westbrook are out.

Jrue was going off on Thad when RW split that second p&r in a row wasn't he?

Didn't see it. You mean the dunk, right?

eddies' heady's reply to Brian on Mar 9 at 19:41

Not sure what it ended in (think RW got fouled) but it was the second time he split it and Jrue turned around and started giving it to Thad and Thad just sort of responded as if he had messed up. But I didn't think Thad was the hedger/shower on that one though, don't have dvr.

PHI 34, OKC 28

Huge start then some big hoops to keep the lead and build it back up. Three more quarters like that and I'll be a happy man (the defense could be much better, though).

bebopdeluxe on Mar 9 at 19:36

At the game...BIG crowd.

Ed Snider is working the refs...classic.

60% shooting for OKC. Ouch. Point of emphasis?

Thabo is on Thad. Go to that.

Shit. Gotta defend, guys.

eddies' heady's on Mar 9 at 19:39

Come on ET, don't token-contest. Foul the crap out of him so he can't get the shot off.

Didn't Harden beat up on Turner in summer league?

TS reply to Jason on Mar 9 at 19:42

Beating up on him right now...

Speights draws the charge on Harden. Nice.

Spencer Flaws on Mar 9 at 19:40

Speezy w/ the charge.

Get Lou out of this fucking game.

Thats benchable Lou.....

Spencer Flaws on Mar 9 at 19:41

and jodie is hotter than a pistol! But we need to get lou out of there

Collins took the ball out of Lou's hands, at least.

how the hell did he make that

ET needs to take sefalosha there.

Taking Thabo is a pretty tall order for a wing. There are better matchups on the floor for us right now. Mostly Thad w/ whoever's on him.

Was no other option, 8 seconds on shot clock, no pass was there. He got lucky that Lou bailed him out.

Gotcha. I thought you were talking in general.

Sixers bench is not looking like a strength tonight.

Our bench should be smoking these guys.

Lou needs to not be handling the ball.

Jrue and Brand back. Get the ball to EB. First lead for OKC.

eddies' heady's on Mar 9 at 19:48

Dammit, we were up 8 right at the start of this quarter. They're up one w/ their two studs on bench. shoot

Take that 3 Jrue.

Jrue passes up so many open threes.

Ugh, Thad w/ his hand in the cookie jar.

F me, why is Lou handling the ball w/ Jrue and AI9 in there?

eddies' heady's on Mar 9 at 19:52

No flow on O right now. Careless w/ the ball. come on

The best offense we've had all game was Jrue driving. He hasn't really touched the ball since he came back in. Get Jodie in for Lou.

Fuck me. This is awful.

collison walked there.

Spencer Flaws on Mar 9 at 19:53

FuCKKKKK!!! Why is lou in? Why isn't thad attacking? Why are we playing small when nick collison of all people is tearing us up?

Collison is their best center. Not sure why Nenad started before and Nazr is starting now.

Gotta bear down now. Early emotion wearing off and you just have to beat them. OKC looks much more comfortable in the halfcourt than we do.

Heh, I have a harvey pollack bobble head in my room lol.

eddies' heady's on Mar 9 at 19:56

Dammit Thad blowing the gimmie. Good find by Dre too. shit

Thad is on Durant, I think. wtf?

Blown bunny for Thad. Can't have that shit tonight.

And a bullshit whistle for Durant, again.

Spencer Flaws on Mar 9 at 19:56

missed bunny thad

Thad has been wild on all his attempts tonight. He needs to settle down.

Just a really poor quarter. Bad play by Jrue to give up the cheapie to Durant in transition. Of course, if Thad doesn't blow the bunny...

AI9 three off Jrue penetration. Keep the fucking ball in Jrue's hands, damnit.

Son of a bitch.

eddies' heady's on Mar 9 at 19:59

Harden deflected that pass from Dre there.

There you go AI9. Just muscle him into the post and make him foul you.

eddies' heady's on Mar 9 at 20:00

Yeah Dre, use that power dribble and back them down. More of that, no matter who's on him.

He'd get called for an offensive foul if he did that to Durant. Guaranteed.

eddies' heady's reply to Brian on Mar 9 at 20:02

agree, unfortunately

Rebound the god damn ball

TS reply to GoSixers on Mar 9 at 20:04

Our guys never seem to jump to rebound.

bebopdeluxe on Mar 9 at 20:04

Big to get it back to tied...the energy was flowing out of the place.

They need to close the half well. Westbrook is ridiculous.

Blown bunny for Jrue, layup on the other end. Ugh.

eddies' heady's on Mar 9 at 20:04

Get ET out of there and put Thad in.

ET doesn't have it today.

Man, Jrue needs to be running this fucking offense.

Spencer Flaws on Mar 9 at 20:06

gosh brand has no lift on his shots.

eddies' heady's on Mar 9 at 20:06

Heh, Snow called that a pick and roll but EB never set a pick

3 on Harden.

a Jrue, Lou, Meeks, Iggy lineup? wtf?

eddies' heady's on Mar 9 at 20:08

Dag, Jrue does a great job of crouching down and being on his toes but RW dishes it for a slam. ugh

Lou w/ the ender!

Shore up the D please and we all go home happy.

That was about the best iso defense you can play on Westbrook right there. still wound up w/ a dunk for Ibaka.

PHI 55, OKC 55 at the half.

24-minute games, fellas.

Jrue has outplayed Westbrook, believe it or not.

eddies' heady's reply to Brian on Mar 9 at 20:12

care to elaborate? curious why you say that....

Jrue's penetrating at will on Westbrook, Jrue's at least putting up a fight on the other end. Lines are very similar between the two. 4/9, 11pts, 3 boards, 6 assists, 1 steal, 0 turns for Jrue. 5/9, 12pts, 2 boards, 8 dimes, 0 steals, 4 turns for Westbrook. Turnovers make the difference in Jrue's favor.

bebopdeluxe on Mar 9 at 20:10

As poorly as they played in the 2nd, they are lucky to be tied.

Oh...did I say that Westbrook is ridiculous?

Jrues doing ok, so are AI9 and J.Meeks... but our bench just makes me sad...

Here's the big question. Do the Sixers have the legs on the second night of the B2B to keep pushing for another 24 minutes?

Brand doesn't

Freaking Grizz - why are teams laying down against the knicks

They're only down 3 in the first.

Was more when i wrote that - it was 10 :)

eddies' heady's reply to Brian on Mar 9 at 20:20

Was thinking the same thing as soon as we came out pushing the ball at the beginning.

Think it's key that KD has only been to the line 4 times. We just can't keep hitting three's at the same clip. Defense was about as bad as last night at IND, to me. Got to hedge hard/blitz that high pick and roll they were killing us w/ early.

bebopdeluxe on Mar 9 at 20:18

Watching Brand out there, I wonder if he has the tank to play at a high level until May. He looks sl-o-o-o-w out there...

He played 32 minutes last night, right?

If we're going to have any chance, Thad needs to show up in the second half. He did nothing in his run in the first.

He looks slow only because the other guys on his team are lightning fast. Brand is/will be OK.

He'll be fine in the playoffs - but on back to backs he's just going to be slow

Alright, let's go. Quick start to the third.

Foot on the line, Jrue. Ugh.

Fucking Hawes tapped that board to OKC. Grab the damned ball.

Good job driving, Jrue.

Rebound the effin ball. Geez.

I like Angry Jrue.


eddies' heady's on Mar 9 at 20:29

Just great hustle by Jrue to go and get that ball

I'm fine w/ sefolosha 22-footers.

Ibaka just threw AI9 out of the way of that pick.

Anyone pay for basketball prospectus?



Yeah, I do. I'll read it later.

Is it worth getting?:)

Grab the fucking ball you scrub.

eddies' heady's on Mar 9 at 20:31

Marreese coming in, Doug tired of watching flail at the boards.



Come on, Jrue. Carry us.

He made it - but Jrue just did his best Lou imitation with Westbrook guarding Speights - I don't like that

eddies' heady's on Mar 9 at 20:33

Whew, Jrue made it but thought he should have threw the lob to Speights.

SHit Sefolosha 3? ugh

he makes em some times - so does Iguodala :)

AI9 three off Jrue penetration!

eddies' heady's on Mar 9 at 20:34

Dre 3! Tighten up on D just a l'il guys. LEt's go!

eddies' heady's on Mar 9 at 20:36

Good half a quarter. Just finish it off the same or maybe we actually get something out of the bench this time?


d-boards are killing us and it's because of all the doubles.

The rebounding percentage right now is just pathetic - under 60%

eddies' heady's on Mar 9 at 20:37

That's 3 o-boards given up this quarter. come on

Speights. from Jrue!

Jrue with the sick lob to Speights and the breakaway dunk for AI9!!!!!!

Spencer Flaws on Mar 9 at 20:38

Brian how did you like that lob?


eddies' heady's on Mar 9 at 20:39

Sigh another o-board.

That lob to sspeights from Iguodala was bad and Speights wasn't ready.

Put Turner in and tell him one thing


Agree.. and don't let Harden punk you

bebopdeluxe reply to GoSixers on Mar 9 at 20:41


Lou can play like shit - and get in in the second half - blow a 4 point lead all by himself

Turner - I'll be surprised to see him play this half

Lou in - nice turnover - dunk in transition for the thunder

Turner won't get in in the second half because of his poor first.


Spencer Flaws on Mar 9 at 20:43

omg lou? already

bebopdeluxe on Mar 9 at 20:43

Why is Lou in this game???

God damnit. Jrue to the bench and Lou is completely assfucking this offense.

eddies' heady's on Mar 9 at 20:43

Lou see that baseline, that's a third defender.

Bench brigade has to step up.

Lou going to the sideline this time, come on step your game up

Lou comes in and effs up. That never happens...

Jodie is guarding Harden...

Spencer Flaws on Mar 9 at 20:44

Thad looks bad out there.

Our bench is an albatross tonight.

Yep. Thad's doing nothing positive. Lou's doing plenty, mostly negative.

He's going to run Jrue the entire fourth, I think. Getting him two minutes rest here. I just hope it doesn't completely kill them.

Turner needs to play - he's really the best damn rebounder on this team (sad but true)

See Thad tonight - that's why I worry about the contract extension.

Bad games can happen to anyone... It's fine as long as it happens rarely.

Good games against bad teams happen a lot and get people real exciting. This is a big game and Thad comes up smaller than a church mouse...

Meeks with the slam!

I think Jrue was surprised Meeks could dunk

eddies' heady's on Mar 9 at 20:46

That's twice we've relinquished leads when the bench came in.

BS call ref. Come on!

Bullshit call

Oh, fuck you Durant. That's such god damned bullshit.

That was fucking bullshit.

Why are the Lou isos back doug - WHY?

PHI 80, OKC 82 after three.

Lou orchestrates a meltdown at the end to ruin what was a pretty good quarter. Better see Jrue running the show for the entire fourth.

eddies' heady's on Mar 9 at 20:48

Don't think he's going to run Jrue entire fourth Brian b/c of the minutes from last night. I'd expect he'll only bring him back when Brooks brings back RW.

If he wants to win, he should.

eddies' heady's reply to Brian on Mar 9 at 20:51

Totally agree, just looking at it from his angle. Jrue admitted publicly he was tired the other week so just going off that and the b2b

Kids 20 - got some young legs - put him in now and let them run and maybe build a lead while westbrook is out

BUt MUST remove Lou from the game - and I'm not sure Thad should stay in

Someone who can rebound needs to be on the floor

Lou takes more off the table than any other player in the NBA. Just seeing him on the court makes me angry.

eddies' heady's on Mar 9 at 20:49

If they just box out even a little bit this quarter.

KD on the bench to start maybe?

Spencer Flaws on Mar 9 at 20:50

We pretty much have to get thad out of there and go with jrue,meeks,iggy,speights,brand

Turner in - lou still in - thad still in - this five scares the crap out of me

Man, this is a huge stretch w/ Meeks as the only starter on the floor.


Spencer Flaws on Mar 9 at 20:52

wtf is a healthy three??

Swapping misses so far.

This might be the worst lineup i've seen this year.

Durant gets the continuation on that play. (the Meeks foul)

eddies' heady's on Mar 9 at 20:53

Ha, there's Meeks shot out of a cannon again..

Meeks has been really solid tonight.

Thad - you can't post up eric maynor?

OKC is collapsing on Thad.

If you say - he seemed to have enough time to try and make a move and take an ugly shot

More like, "Lou, it takes you 8 seconds to make the entry pass?"

There we go, Thad.

goddamn it...

Maybe Lou doesn't know what a pick and roll is?

eddies' heady's on Mar 9 at 20:55

Lou! Let's go, Lou's scoring has been huge tonight off the bench. The only one doing anything in that category.

Jrue has 19

eddies' heady's reply to Jason on Mar 9 at 20:59

He's a starter, talking about the bench. Though Speights has done his share too I think

think he meant scoring off the bench.

Alright, Doug. Jrue can go the rest of the way. Though Lou just got hot.

Jrue should have the fucking ball here. Let Lou run off screens for catch-and-shoot opps.

Spencer Flaws on Mar 9 at 20:59

They call lane violations in the nba?


eddies' heady's on Mar 9 at 21:01

Damn, Thad can't buy one tonight

Shit. Perfect drive for Thad and it rims out.

What a play by Iguodala in transition. that's huge. Let's go. Get this lead right back.

eddies' heady's on Mar 9 at 21:03

It just sucks the life out of me when Westbrook makes one from damn near Jersey...

Has iggy always had the knee brace on?

I hate the grizzlies

eddies' heady's on Mar 9 at 21:04

Hope he subs Meeks for Lou here and keep everyone else the same to run til the end. Meeks has came up w/ some big boards tonight.

How come super defender Tony Allen isn't shutting Melo down?

Thad. Nice.

eddies' heady's on Mar 9 at 21:05

Great call out of the timeout Doug, to Thad down low

Put Turner in for lou - NEED REBOUNDS


eddies' heady's on Mar 9 at 21:06

Jrue sized that one up! Don't raise the roof yet Jrue

damn it lou - stupid 3 early in the offense durant gets transition 2 - idjit

Fuck me. Iguodala goes under, no show by the big on Durant. Can't do that.

Elton - don't let Collison box you out

Does anyone doubt this will come down to the last minute?

eddies' heady's on Mar 9 at 21:08

Lou w/ the sweet pass-fake and and-one opp!

Come on. Keep up this fucking pressure and work the fucking boards.

Lou Williams---always liked him :)

The thunder have been in the pnealty since about 6 minutes - be aggressive damn it

eddies' heady's on Mar 9 at 21:09

They're in the penalty. Capitalize on it!

Keep getting to the line.

They're free.

did Doug really just tell Jrue to give Lou the ball

Yeah Jrue - you kicked it - cause Ibaka threw it into your foot :)

eddies' heady's on Mar 9 at 21:10

That was not a kick! BS

It hit his foot - just the pas was at it...

Man, I hate to say it, but is anyone better at drawing contact on the sixers than Lou?

eddies' heady's reply to GoSixers on Mar 9 at 21:14

lol, you hate him above though. dare you say it....

Hey - like I said earlier this esason, lou is VERY good at scoring (and drawing fouls) - he just does little else :)

Terrible call. Great D by Jrue on Westbrook there.

Lou to the line again. Hit the freebies.

Crowd is into it, baby!

eddies' heady's on Mar 9 at 21:10

Great D by Jrue on RW.

Make em pay Lou!

How was that not goal tending on the follow for the thunder?


eruthephenom on Mar 9 at 21:11

Yes lou, keep being aggresive. It's funny that no matter what lou does good in a game as soon as he does something bad the haters on this page put a comment quickly.

I beat you to the positive LOUUUUUUUUU!!!! so suck it.

eddies' heady's on Mar 9 at 21:12

Lou 3!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Stop please!!

Spencer Flaws on Mar 9 at 21:12


How the HELL did that 3 from lou go in?

Ref had a terrible angle to make that call

eddies' heady's on Mar 9 at 21:12

Dammit Lou should have swung it initially after receiving the pass, he waited and messed up Jrue's rhythm

Not drawing the foul seemed to confuse him I think


Love the crowd.

I'm most impressed by the crowd right now.

Not sure that foul should be on lou - durant lost the ball all by himself - incidental contact ref

Come on. Finish this fucking shit.

ref go fuck urself...

Did I just see an MMO commercial during a sixer game? WTF

Perfect D.. staggered rotation by Thad was ideal

Please do not give up the three.

Jrue digs out the huge fucking board. Come on. Put two on the board here.

Ugh. 24 second violation.

eddies' heady's on Mar 9 at 21:16

Be smart now.

Not a good possession. No one wanted to take the shot dammit.......come the eff on@!

People say a lot about clutch scoring, but the sixers have been rebounding clutch in the fourth...as opposed to the first 3.

How do you NOT get a shot off?

Spencer Flaws on Mar 9 at 21:16

Well guys we do give lou a hard time because he does make some bone-headed plays. But he is a really good player at drawing fouls and when he's hot i laugh at all of the crazy shots he jacks up and makes.

EB!!!!!! Needed that board.

Come on, end this shit. UGH.

eddies' heady's on Mar 9 at 21:17

Big board EB!

Finish these MF'ers off!! Waited all day for this.......

Horrible shot. Just drive to the effing rim for the love of all that is holy.

C'mon lou..

I'm losing my shit here. Come on. One hoop wins this game.

Jesus Durant - how does that go in

One stop. Man, how did Durant hit that last shot?

eddies' heady's on Mar 9 at 21:19

RUn them off the line or foul them please.

Spencer Flaws on Mar 9 at 21:19

come on iggy, Why'd you pump fake?

lol, can you close a game any worse.

If Andre Iguodala ever had a moment to get the city on his side - it was after he beat Durant just then (before the airball) damn double clutch

Don't foul. Worst-case, they hit the shot and you have a chance to win it.

How in gods name does Kevin Durant just make shots like that

rly iggy ? thats the play you go with? jesus...

It's Turner's fault

damn he is good

Only the sixers.

eddies' heady's on Mar 9 at 21:21

Fuck, just foul them Doug..............sheesh just foul the guy up top w/ the ball before the pass is even deliverd. man............

How the fuck did that go in?

Regroup. 6.2 seconds here. Win it or overtime. Under no circumstances does OKC get the ball back in regulation.

fuckin KD...

If the play involves lou and he dribbles into a double team while ignoring a wide open shooter - i hate him

Please don't bring lou back in.

I want Meeks taking this shot.

Spencer Flaws on Mar 9 at 21:22

this shit always happens. I don't see how this always happens to the philly sixers. Well one more shot. I would go with lou to take it all the way to the hole.

Charge. they're losing this game right here.

The end of this game couldn't be going any worse for Iguodala

eddies' heady's on Mar 9 at 21:23

AFter seeing that replay, why was that not a moving screen on that Durant tying 3? The guy never fully set himself.

Because it's the NBA and with that little time on the clock certain things don't get called unless you're the sixers

Overtime - better than I could have hoped for 2 hours ago - but again - like the mavs- the sixers should have won this in regulation

eddies' heady's reply to GoSixers on Mar 9 at 21:27

That was so blatant though, the guy was rooting his rear end into Dre for about 2-3 feet, constantly moving.

I'm not disagreeing with you - I'm just telling you how it works.

If Kobe, Or James, runs westbrook over - do you think it's called on them - or do you think Westbrook is called for a block - or there's no foul at all?

eddies' heady's reply to GoSixers on Mar 9 at 22:01

Yeah, I knew what you meant about the league, just thought that was so darn obvious. I've always despised the slanted calls just because of the sanctity of the game, and disliked it ever since Bird used to get the benefit of the doubt, then Jordan.

I honestly didn't see it - I saw Durant get a look - I knew it was going in - and the sixers replay focused on Evan Turner NOT rotating so Iguodala had to run to try and get a hand in his face

I love this team.

Game over.

AI are you fuckin kiddin me?

eddies' heady's on Mar 9 at 21:24

THought this roller coaster ride was over....few more laps i guess..

This game has felt like a lifetime already

Had to take a breath there.

OK. 5 minutes to glory.

PHI 101, OKC 101 after regulation.

heh in the final 2 minutes did the sixers only manage to put up 1 shot that got to the rim?

Winning teams versus mediocre teams - right there

Knicks up 15 with 9:47 left in the 3rd

Seriously - what the hell Grizzlies

Well i don't think i would let iggy have any more isos at the end of the game anymore.

eddies' heady's on Mar 9 at 21:26

Up 3, I'm a fan of fouling where the most they can get is 2 and then they're going to send you to the line immediately after theirs. Shoot....

bebopdeluxe on Mar 9 at 21:26

Two shot clock violations and an offensive foul.


Let Jrue run the show, please.

Don't pick up your fucking dribble. Jrue.

Ugh. Not the way to open OT.


Defense and rebounding - defense and rebounding

How many o-boards do you want to give them?

yes - give the thunder three chances - i'm sure they'll miss them all

game over

Doug needs a timeout. They're fucking asleep and OKC smells blood.

Dre is combusting here.

nice one meeks...

eddies' heady's on Mar 9 at 21:30

Refs getting whistle happy. RW ran into him, Thad had his back turned. cheap call

fuck this.

OMFG rebound the fucking ball!

bebopdeluxe on Mar 9 at 21:31

Their feet look like they are in quicksand.

jesus christ iggy, pull yourself together...

I hate to say this, but bring Lou back in. It can't get much worse.

eddies' heady's on Mar 9 at 21:33

Doug's may be making a mistake by keeping the ball in Dre's hands here instead of Jrue's

That whistle bailed the Sixers out of another empty possession, temporarily at least.

Put the ball in Jrue's hands doug - this is stupid

Jesus, get a shot off for fuck's sake.

This team has no focus in overtime - everyone is a mess on the offensive end (it's not juts Iguodala) no one wants to shoot - everyones is looking horrible.

Jesus this is pathetic - what a waste of a good effort

seriously... dre... what the fuck?

Stop it already

That's not a charge. Come on.

Fucking flop.

How in the name of God are we only down by 1

eddies' heady's on Mar 9 at 21:35

Oh my, EB w the clock beater


This is awful on so many levels.

Spencer Flaws on Mar 9 at 21:36

thad doesn't have it tonight

Fucking halfway down the fucking cock.

Damn it Jodie - wide open

eddies' heady's on Mar 9 at 21:37

Why did Jrue pull that up?

Two Jodie 3's.....nope...why Jrue did you not attack there?

Because they're down 3 I guess. Instead of taking the easy two and playing defense they wanted to play for a three.

It's aggravating this game - because they should have won in regulation. Not winning in regulation seems to have flustered them.

Here's an idea Doug - set some picks to get Meeks an open look

Jodie put some chalk on those sweaty palms... jesus

And Meeks gets the wide open three look. Come on, I'm having a heart attack here.

This game is kind of epic. It's the worst basketball you can possibly play and we are still not totally out of it.

And illegal screen. Lovely.

NOW they call the illegal screen


eddies' heady's on Mar 9 at 21:40

Come the fuck on!! How is that shit screen illegal and the Durant tying three isn't??? Seriously, someone w/ DVR go back and compare the two....just bullcrap!!

Refs giving this game to OKC. So many fucking flops.

A fucking Westbrook 20-footer to seal it. FML.

Why did Lou sit the entire OT - he was the only one getting any thing going offensively?

Come on - the booing - if it's for the sixers - is uncalled for

johnrosz reply to GoSixers on Mar 9 at 21:47

Dre is just out of control at the end of games. I mean, you leave them 1.9 because you're too geeked up to read the defense

I'm pretty sure that was towards the refs

PHI 105, OKC 110 I quit for the night.

This kind of game makes me hate basketball. Not the collapse or anything but the fact that all calls seem to swing against us. In our own building no less. It's fucking bullshit.

eddies' heady's reply to TS on Mar 9 at 21:45

Too. fu&@&&*&@@!!!!. true.

If Lou's perfectly clean steal isn't called a foul - we win...

They weren't executing when it mattered though

If Andre Iguodala is Kobe or Lebron the charge doesn't get called - and the sixers win.

They gave a great effort, but I think they just had nothing left in overtime - also some questionable coaching moves in the OT in my opinion.

The key problem though was the first through third quarters - the rebounding. The sixers were below 60% on the defensive glass through the first three quarters - you can't give a team like Oklahoma City that many extra possessions.

Rich reply to GoSixers on Mar 9 at 21:56

He was out of control. I thought that was a good call. The other ones they made? Well, we'll just leave it at that I disagreed.

Answer the question. If it's kobe, or wade, or paul, or derrick rose, do they make the same call?

eddies' heady's on Mar 9 at 21:44

While that game was kind of fun, I just hope none of the playoff games have that much of an effect on my heart and blood pressure please.

Wanted that one so bad. Just a few d-boards here, one there, and some non-lousy officiating and different result maybe.

I know this, we are a force to be reckoned with, win or lose tonight. Good things to come on Friday, I hope, I wanted that one way worse than I wanted this one anyway. Still disappointing as all get out though. u.g.h.

Ugh, another gutcheck loss. Gotta say, Andre was terrible down the stretch on offense. KD got him tonight too, which happens. The point forward offense wasn't great though. Thad/Speights were really disappointing on defense too.

I hate basketball.

Knicks Grizz are on NBA TV

However the knicks have a 13 point lead with about a minute left in the 3rd

eddies' heady's on Mar 9 at 21:47

Wish someone could please post a youtube clip of the Durant tying 3 screen at end of regulation and the EB bullcrap call near the end of overtime on his screen. Interesting similar, but contrasting calls.

The clippers are leading the celtics in boston - yuck

johnrosz on Mar 9 at 21:51

Elton lowered his shoulder into Harden. I can't blame the refs for this one.

Would have liked a look for Lou at the end of regulation (can't believe I'm saying that) He was really carrying them in the 4th

Refs suck, that's their nature. Sixers should've won this game with it being called exactly how it was. Don't use that excuse.

Serious question - lebron james, kobe bryant, are they called for the charge?

I'm not saying that's where they lost - they lost with the lousy rebounding which if even league average would have given the sixers game in regulation...I'm just curios if you think lebron, or kobe, or wade, or chris paul gets called for that charge?
