Game 66 Thread: PHI @ MIL

Sixers should start their 5 game road trip off a win (3-2 road trip prediction)

eddies' heady's on Mar 12 at 16:22

Go Blazers! Last night's win makes this an even bigger game.

Turner didn't score in either of the last two games and seems to have lost a little aggression. They could use some production from him.

FYI, Meeks has 100 3-pointers this season. That's the most since Iguodala (101) in 2006-07.

Collins: Sixers would be better off making playoffs than losing like Barkley says


Think it's a close Sixers' win. Would make them 8-2 in last 10 on the road.

Bogut may be a shell offensively, but he still grabs like 12 boards/gm and i think he might even lead the league in blocks. He's the 1 guy that could hurt them tonight imo.

Bogut's an awesome defensive center. Offensively, he's basically been Spencer Hawes, and that's not a good thing.

w00t Kate Fagan is back with the team as of tonight!

deepsixer3: Flying to MKE to rejoin 76ers. Thanks for patience, was off on future project and learning some new tech. we'll use rest of season.

The hawks start a six game home stand tonight...SIX GAMES.

The sixers longest home stand of the season is four

I think they'll be lucky to go 3-3 on that home stand. If they lose to Portland tonight, could be 2-4. Sixers need that game down there in the worst way.

Win or lose tonight I still think they get 3

Milwaukee, Denver, Detroit

They'll lose to miami and chicago and then hopefully the first away game after the six game trip (philly)

Did you get the two things I sent you today?

Yah, just got got home, haven't had a chance to read.

For some reason, I thought the Sixers were the 6th game in ATL, but you're right. 3-3 is probable.

Portland, Milwaukee, Denver, Miami, Detroit, Chicago

The sixers game (thankfully) is in philly.

eddies' heady's reply to Brian on Mar 12 at 20:13

atlanta only wins one of those games.

The Hawks are better than Milwuakee and Detroit, two wins to me is a given, Denver is the unknown

eddies' heady's on Mar 12 at 19:57

3 min....

Portland is up six on the Hawks in the second quarter. Let's go Blazers.

So the Bucks' announcers said their key to the game is Brandon Jennings containing Lou Williams.

eddies' heady's on Mar 12 at 20:02

Dag Sidney, he says that Jennings has to stop Lou, not Jrue. We used to smoke him too when he played for milwaukee.

eddies' heady's on Mar 12 at 20:05

I like when they play that commercial w/ Eminem in the background during the Sixers games. They showed it at a crucial point in last night's game.

anyone have a streaming link for tonight's game? thanks in advance - i tried the same link i used for last night but it wasnt' working.

is atdhe.net still working? That's what I've always used.

MW reply to Brian on Mar 12 at 20:14

atdhe comes up as a forbidden site. can't even get anywhere w/ it.

Siezed by ICE because streaming games is illegal

They moved the site to atdhe.me the same day, so much for the hard work of ICE. However they dont have a sixers stream working there


The Bucks must shoot 40% from three to have a shot tonight? I'd say they have no shot.

eddies' heady's on Mar 12 at 20:11

let's go

Alright, Hawes wins another tip.

EB in the post right away, big size advantage. 2-zip.

Damnit, Brand needs to catch that pass.

Two threes for Jennings.

Good push and finish for Jrue.

eddies' heady's on Mar 12 at 20:14

Jrue got a piece of that one by Jennings.

Wow, slippery move by Jrue on the baseline for the finish. Nice.

Jodie three off the AI9 post up. Great cross-court find.

...so who or what did we trade to these guys in order to get Jo-3 last year?

Ivey, Primoz and a second rounder for Jodie and Francisco Elson.

Royal Ivey, Primoz Brezec and a second-round pick.

eddies' heady's on Mar 12 at 20:18

Moncrief was right on that one though, was thinking the same thing last night - Meeks resembles Andrew Toney.

Charge. That's two early TOs for Jrue.

Shit, make that three.

Can we please get some post ups from Jrue on Jennings tonight? That's easy offense.

Team looks flat - need to forget about last night and focus on tonight

20-footers for Mbah a Moute is a win on the defensive end. I don't care if he makes them or not.

eddies' heady's on Mar 12 at 20:22

Spencaaaaa Hawes....lol

Please, keep giving them WIDE OPEN LOOKS at 3 pointers - no big deal

Jrue's on.

eddies' heady's on Mar 12 at 20:23

Gonna take us a while to get our legs under us tonight.

Ugly start so far. Some tired D being played.

Bogut looks like Hawes in the post.

Sixers need to clean up the turnovers.

eddies' heady's on Mar 12 at 20:24

Dre 3!

lol, because here would then be 100 assists per game. Would be terrible.

I would split them between primary and secondary assists

I like the idea, but the logistics behind it are a pain.

Turner first off the bench.

Good D by Jrue on that play.

They're 4/4 from three now, I think. I should just keep my mouth shut.

4 wide open looks - maybe the sixers will guard them one of these times - lousy switching on these double teams leading to too many open looks

Who the hell focuses their defensive efforts on double teaming John Salmons?

Jrue is sooo bad at leaving his man when he doesn't need to.

They have 9 assists on 9 made field goals.

I'm all for daring a bad shooter to shoot, but if he starts knocking them down, quit leaving him wide open.

sorry to ask again, but if anyone has a streaming site besides atdhe.net please let me know. thx.

4 turns for Jrue. that was the first bad one, imo. He should've just shot it.

eddies' heady's on Mar 12 at 20:29

That pass was never there Jrue. Not good.

Speights over the Larry Sanders.

I'm not fond of Earl Boykins

Or the End of quarter Lou iso

Portland lead at 4 - ugly game in Atlanta - 45-41 with 6:38 to go in the third

PHI 25, MIL 26 after 1.

Really bad quarter on defense and way too many turnovers. Clean up the turnovers and let MIL's bad shooters come back down to earth.

Fuckin Lou...

26 points to the Bucks is terrible. Lets see some better defense in the 2nd and we should have a nice halftime lead.

Bad start to the second.

Another fucking turnover. Come on.

eddies' heady's on Mar 12 at 20:38

ANother turnover. come on...

and another. Jesus. Collins is going to lose his mind.

eddies' heady's on Mar 12 at 20:38

aaannndd another damn one


Come on guys

eddies' heady's on Mar 12 at 20:39

Speights with some rare aggression.

WTF? This is awful. What happened to our bench?

How many bunnies were blown on that last possession? I lost count after 4.

Collins needs to light a fire under these guys.

Atlanta losing, chance to tie the idle knicks, this game is as important as last nights game. Last nights game is no longer relevant, stop playing like crap

eddies' heady's on Mar 12 at 20:40

No way they keep this three-ball shooting up like this all night. Starters may have to win this one too just like last night.

Sixers shot 75% in the first quarter

It's more likely the bucks keep hitting wide open looks at 3's then the sixer shoot 75%

Jesus. Bring Battie and Nocioni in if nobody wants to play tonight.

Brackins too.

0 points and crappy defense

way to start the second quarter

Bogut with the nice moving screen there.

Battie coming in on the next dead ball.

For Speights - who is to blame of course

Get the starters back in already

I liked it better when Thad didn't shoot jumpers. Way too many in the last couple of games.

eddies' heady's reply to TS on Mar 12 at 20:47

and every single one of em are so off

God damn it there's an r in there - it's library - not lie-berry

Hawks up 8 at the end of 3

Where is Elton Doug?


This is pathetic, unacceptable, and demonstrative of how very far they have left to go

Why is lou still in the game now doug? Time to take his ass out

Jesus. This doesn't resemble the Sixers team I've seen for the past couple months at all.

eddies' heady's reply to Brian on Mar 12 at 20:53

They're spent mentally and physically I'm sure. Not saying it's over though.

would love to see IGgy drive to the rim.

23-9 so far this quarter.

Hopefully Skiles just did the Sixers a favor taking that timeout.

Spencer now believes he's an offensive threat

Brian, need to change that prediction from 11-6 to 10-7 if they don't get their crap together tonight

Too many guys jogging at shooters with their hands down. I hope Doug spits fire at these guys at halftime.

Did the sixers players somehow go on the Erin Express today?

eddies' heady's on Mar 12 at 20:56

Our ball movement is almost nil. It's not crisp and swift, too much holding it or dribbling.

eddies' heady's on Mar 12 at 20:57

And Jrue's careless with another one. turnover ugh

Stupid foul Evan

Down 20. that's their 11th turnover, Jrue's 5th.

Just pathetic in almost every aspect of the game...

eddies' heady's on Mar 12 at 20:58

ET's got to stop with that token contest, if he hears the whistle and wants to stick his hand in there, then don't let the guy get the shot off.

eddies' heady's on Mar 12 at 20:58

Hawes finally leans forward on a hook.

Thad's impressive.

At what?


Why does Iggy keep waving off Turner? Obnoxious. Turner is shooting well tonight and isn't part of the turnover-happy crowd.

3 fouls on Jrue. Guess Lou will come back in for the end of the half. Don't really have another option. What an abortion of a half.

eddies' heady's on Mar 12 at 21:00

EB? What kind of pass was that? I mean,....

Well, we were probably due for one of these at some point.

Was thinking the same thing. They've been good for too long...

Bull - I hate comments like that - it excuses piss poor play - there's no reason they were due to play a game that is just as bad as any of the 3-13 games. They're better than this and they're playing like shit, and 'due' is not a valid excuse

Of course they shouldn't play like that. But statistically you know it's gonna happen. It happens to every single team, even championship contenders.

So maybe the sixers didn't win last night - maybe the celtics were just due

"Due" is not a statistical concept. It's bull shit to claim that it is.

The way the sixers have been playing in February, even since January, even on the road the 'statistics' were on their side.

Rich reply to GoSixers on Mar 12 at 22:37

I meant us as fans. We've been spoiled recently with very competitive basketball. Of course they played like shit, nobody is excusing that.

I thought they might have trouble tonight after that emotional win. Obviously, that effort left a lot to be desired. If this team can shake off heartbreaking losses, they can shake off a stinker.

Still, why such a hard line again after they lose? Seems a lot like the Memphis game, just forget about it.

eddies' heady's on Mar 12 at 21:01

Come on get a stop dammit.

Wow...I'm so mad right now I can't even continue to watch in real time. It's too painful. Time to DVR this game and watch it later when I've accepted the fact they were due for a game like this and it probably won't be repeated again this year.

eddies' heady's on Mar 12 at 21:01

Lou! and one...let's go

12 total. 3 on EB.

We have a shot to get it under 15 at the half. I guess that's the goal.

Yes, please let Keyon Dooling beat you

When is the last time someone dropped 60 on us at the half?

eddies' heady's on Mar 12 at 21:02

Now that was a doozy.

PHI 41, MIL 59 at the half.

I'm going to do my best to forget that quarter ever happened.

Nice to see the return of the Lou iso fadeaway to end both quarters. Naturally missed both.

Hawks are going to win

By the way, they can win this game. Milwaukee is playing way over their heads and the Sixers are playing terrible basketball. The first couple minutes of the third are going to tell the story.

They can - but they won't

eddies' heady's reply to Brian on Mar 12 at 21:07

Totally agree. It's still very winnable. Just chop away and D up better, their shots can't keep going down at this rate.

OK, let's go. Jodie three...and a fucking o-board on the other end. Stops and hoops, come on.

Can't they give Jennings two minutes in the box for that swipe at Jrue??

Jesus, lob was there and Jrue threw it about 10 feet too high.

eddies' heady's on Mar 12 at 21:22

How tall did Jrue think he was? dag...lol

eddies' heady's on Mar 12 at 21:23

Let's go, put a run together.

Getting some stops, get to work on the other end.

eddies' heady's on Mar 12 at 21:24

See, they're missing now, just make wise decisions and take good shots.

Iguodala heating up. OK, come on now. The D is there.

eddies' heady's on Mar 12 at 21:25

Starting with a Dre 3 is nice.

eddies' heady's on Mar 12 at 21:27

Good hands EB, got it to 12. keep plugging

eddies' heady's on Mar 12 at 21:29

Jodie with a nice runner.

eddies' heady's on Mar 12 at 21:30

Uh, we rotated our ass off there, but Jodie gave a good foul.

eddies' heady's on Mar 12 at 21:31

Two bad turnovers by Andre in the last few possesions here.

They're still missing shots, come on...

EB gets stripped...foul...we're right there

That wasn't a foul on Hawes.

Need the bench to bring energy here.

Get this under 10 by the end of the quarter.

eddies' heady's on Mar 12 at 21:32

Another weak pass turnover, thanks to Hawes.

eddies' heady's on Mar 12 at 21:35

Have to get this to around 12 in closing here. Have to. They've gotten stops but given up o-boards or didn't convert on their end.

eddies' heady's on Mar 12 at 21:36

Yeah Moncrief we were your rival weren't we? Used to whip that ass......they got us one time though i think

eddies' heady's on Mar 12 at 21:37

Didn't like that early shot from ET there.

running in quicksand. if you can call it running.

eddies' heady's on Mar 12 at 21:38

We're shooting way too many jumpers right now. That bad one from Dre.

eddies' heady's on Mar 12 at 21:39

everything damn thing they're throwing up is going down wow they've added to the lead from the half

another turnover, break, dunk. f me....

eddies' heady's on Mar 12 at 21:40

Marreese jacking another early clock jumper.

PHI 57, MIL 80 after three.

Not sure why I'm even going to watch the fourth.

because you want to see the first episode of THE BRACK SHOW in a long long time?

eddies' heady's on Mar 12 at 21:42

Our bench looks like Boston's bench last night. They've really stunk it up both times they've came in tonight.

Brackins time. May not see the starters again.

eddies' heady's on Mar 12 at 21:44

Brackins sighting.

Brackins isn't shy.

eddies' heady's on Mar 12 at 21:48

Not an excuse, but they're exhausted, there was a lot that went into that game last night.

Still doesn't explain to me why Jrue was so jekyll and hyde tonight? He had been stepping up, but wilted tonight - opposite ends of spectrum type.

Brackins w/ a nice pick to free Turner. He missed the layup, but it's refreshing to see the picker actually make contact on a pick.

eddies' heady's on Mar 12 at 21:52

I was on top of the mountain last night, this still hurts though. Not mad, and doesn't diminish what I've seen from them though, it happens to the best of them.

Nocioni sighting.

Just don't lose by 30, please.

eddies' heady's on Mar 12 at 21:56

Is this Chicago Bulls 45 pt type game?

This is absurd

eddies' heady's on Mar 12 at 21:58

He's not even garbage time Turner now? wow

MichaelT reply to eddies' heady's on Mar 12 at 22:01

His +/- is like 10 to 20 points worse than everyone else. Has he really been the worst player on the court tonight? I'm not watching the game.

Nope. That would be Craig Cousins.

welp, this seems like as good a time as any to watch the DVR'd TWolves game and look for myself in the crowd...it has been a while since they dropped a clunker like this, but maybe this game will get them pissed off enough to not let it happen again...

eddies' heady's on Mar 12 at 22:13

The guy that played the most minutes is my potg. And not because he did that.
