Game 68 Thread: PHI @ LAC

So I think I counted this up right - the Clippers are 11-2 in their last 13 home games.

If you need any help the next time you're counting to 13, just drop me an email.

WHich one of your kids misbehaved tonight?:)

Actually had a decent night. Had to work late, then caught a movie on my way home.

The NBA should take a break during NCAA tourney. Gonna miss the first half.

The tournament starts tomorrow as far as I'm concerned

These games are ridiculous (and honestly, I thought they were all going to be 16 seed sacrificial lamb games anyway to give the sisters of the poor one tournament 'win')

It's awesome that in such a weak year in college ball they institute the 68 team policy

I'm a big CAA fan so i'm watching.

That's the USC-VCU '12' seed game?

I'll mostly be watching the Sixers, but I'm with you in this game then. The point guard for USC is a huge douche who transferred from my school's terrible hoops program where he was awful and turned into a very steady player for them.

That, and I snuck down from those nosebleeds in Philly two years ago for the first round games. The one game that I got the best seats for was UCLA-VCU. I sat right behind the VCU band (very good and pretty funny chants too), and they lost by one on an Eric Maynor brick at the end of the game with Darren Collison guarding him.

I also remember during that game being impressed with a UCLA freshman guard whose name was Jrue Holiday.

my god this arena is empty.

Yea thats the reason I'll be watching too. Went to Delaware so I root for the conference. It's a shame how far they have fallen since playing in the American East

Brian, can you tally the number of games that you have predicted the Sixers to win (in the preview posts). It seems that you have predicted them to win almost every game. Would be curious to see the breakdown for fun.

I don't really have any interest in tallying this up. Feel free, if you have the time. I'm typically a hopeless optimist on game day, so I'm sure I've predicted like 50 wins the first 68 games.

Atlanta lost in a blowout at home to the Lawson-helmed Nuggets; perhaps we still have a small chance at the 5th seed. Lawson didn't play for most of the second half - when he was in, he had 9, 4, 10, 3 steals and 1 turnover in 25 minutes. Greg Monroe, who's been averaging 15 and 10 since the All-Star break, has 19, 8 and 5 right now. Perhaps the most underrated of rookies.

I like cooking, I have a lot of dabbling passions while still looking for the primary one (stupid ADHD is a bitch), and some of the stuff they cook is awesome.

I saw a cooking show in a bar - I'm not sure if it was Top Chef, but it seemed pretty intelligent for reality TV, with the exception of the suspenseful outros to commercials where they ponder whose foie gras is going to get cut.

I wasn't really coming at you. Top Chef or stuff like Burn Notice isn't my thing, but television is so specialized now that it's not like it matters. It's just people's particular tastes. I watch some good stuff, and have guilty pleasures.

It is possible that I wouldn't like what you read either (which I don't really know, haven't said anything about it) and agree with your take on Twilight.

I read a wide variety of things, but I'm a geek, have been since i was in second grade and my teacher bought me my first two books ever - and when I was a kid there wasn't as much literature available so I read stuff that might be for 'teens' but a ton of other stuff.

I watch a ton of tv, again, numerous passions but no deep ones

Nice, DirecTV finally came out with a new mini-giraffe commercial. Those crack me up.

C.J. Miles with 25 first-half points against Minnesota. Favors with two first-half fouls (9 minutes). Wesley Johnson continuing to establish himself as the poor man's Martell Webster.

Maybe if the sixers use a kia optima as starting center they can stop griffin

(IS that kia commercial national or am I just blessed with it because Im in the greater LA tv market?)

Oh it's national

Lawler's law in HD tonight for me.

This Jalen Rose thing is getting completely blown out of proportion. The problem is that Rose is too much of a fucking idiot to explain that he was talking about how he felt at the time. Either that or he's really an idiot and that's how he still feels. Saw the documentary, liked the HBO doc on UNLV better. Kate got a reaction from Brand.

My dad interviewed Tark when Rollie took over for him and everyone hated him in Vegas. He said he was really funny. The thing he (and I) liked about Tark was that he didn't pretend he didn't cheat a little. He was kind of like an honest criminal. Well, almost.

Did you see the UNLV doc? It was really good. I always kind of thought Tark was just a cheater, never realized he was such a good coach, too.

THere's a little something in this weeks around the web regarding how elton brand felt, at the time, about duke

If you've ever seen the movie 'Eddie' I know who speights models his game after

Mareese Makes Basket

Rose certainly seems a little too defensive about those remarks, at least from what I have heard him say.

And if I had a choice to watch a documentary by HBO or ESPN about the same topic, Im picking HBO every times

To me, Rose has always been a poseur, not as smart as he wants everyone to think he is and insecure in his own knowledge and expertise. This just kind of exposes it.

ESPN sweeping it under the rug is deplorable. If a white guy said it - he would have been fired

All right time to sit back and watch a huge performance by Jrue tonight!

Alright, let's get it done.

Hawes winning tips is a bad indicator for the Sixers.

D. Jordan killed the Celtics the other night.

Watch out Spence!!

Aaaaannd, Hawes loses the tip. We're off!

Mo is guarding Jrue. Nice P&Pop Ai and EB to start things.

Jodie w/ the dribble drive. Poor defense by the Clips.

I think EB's first jumper opened up the lane for Meeks. Jordan looked like he didn't want another jumper in his face.

Couple long twos for Williams. Jrue stuck on a pick on the second.

Split-A-Pair Hawes!

Did Jrue foul him there? Yup. God damnit.

That was offensive goaltending on Jordan.

Jrue three, EB block, AI9 dunk. nice series there.

Jrue's gotten picked three timed for Williams buckets. The second one was his fault, he got stuck.

It must be nice for Williams though, Brand offers no resistance. He just sits in the lane. It's really Shaq level pick and roll defense.

Now EB showed on the fourth one and he blocked Blake from behind. More of that please.

Jodie three.

Meeks into the starting line up benched Turner huh?

It wasn't nocioni?

Is anyone at the point where their eyes light up when they see Jodie trailing Iguodala on a break? He always gets him the ball.

Like Iverson w/ Korver.

His inability to score off the dribble reminds me of young Korver too (he's still not good but he's gotten better)

Jrue w/ another jumper. Please, please give us a big game tonight, Jrue.

WHy is everyone falling over?

Good question. That's three times.

Iguodala is getting into the paint tonight, even hit EB for a wide open jumper on that last one. Very good sign.

Well, then he settles for a bad one. Take the good with the bad.

Battie and Turner are first off bench for AI9 and Hawes. Was wondering if we'd see Thad on Griffin, I think the answer is no.

Good steal Jodie! Ugh, offensive foul on Jrue, questionable call. Wow, terrible call after replay.

Kaman walked about three times before they called it.

RIDICULOUS foul

Fucking Tom Washington. That's a 2nd foul that isn't Jrue's fault at all. That's not close.

Also, notice Mo Williams has had to give up the ball when Brand is providing resistance on the pick? The other big has cut off the plunging Griffin every time. I like it.

This game has some promise. Meeks with some good D and Hawes got through his first run without the ball hitting him in the face.

What the hell is Nocioni doing on the court?

Nocioni. Fuck me.

The Return of the Mullet. Uh oh.

i'm not all that surprised. Collins gave Speights a chance to show he can do something and he didn't really deliver. Battie sucks but he's more reliable and Collins needs to get him up to speed for the playoffs.

Speights I believe did the best he is able at this time - I'm not really sure how Collins expects his game to change over night during the season. He's still clueless on defense but showing a bit more effort, he wasn't rewarded for that, so now, why should he bother trying?

Wait, so are we going to Lou/Turner/Noc/Thad/Battie for offense? Or for defense?

Neither

PHI 24, LAC 24 after one.

great start, completely pissed away by the fourth unit Collins finished the quarter with. On the bright side, Lou saved his shooting percentage by not quite getting off a heave at the buzzer.

Lou needs to be benched for that selfish crap. But he's Collins' pet.

You know Craig Smith's 27? I'd still like him on our team though. I'm not sure why he's never gotten more of an opportunity. He's produced every year he's been in the league.

And he follows it up w/ a terrible turnover.

I think Thad wanted to run on that pass and that's why he got it to Jodie when Lou was open. Not excusing the pass, but Lou looked like he was in walk the ball up the floor mode.

I believe they were trying to give Brand credit. I think they were also saying that he's been struggling a little recently.

Jodie will be a great bench guy, but he is not a starting 2. He can't create a shot for himself or play D

Korver couldn't create his shot early in his career either, he did improve. (I don't think Meeks will be a starter either). If Meeks could improve off the dribble it just makes him more dangerous. All you gotta do to stop Meeks is guard him.

Yep. There have been a minimum of five phantom calls on the Sixers. Hawes and Battie both have 3, Brand has 2, Jrue has 2. It's going to be tough for them to stay on the floor.

A star.

Iguodala has 3 dunks, 0/6 from the floor otherwise.

Remember a while back the Sxiers gave up a 6 point possession?

Well this game the Clips had 3FGA and 8FTA on one possesion. I think they scored 2 points :)

Yup. 2/8 from the line.

Oh man, Curry has to coach this team.

(Gulp)

Speights not even in the huddle...

....so i was listening on radio and couldn't tell, did Collins get rossed because of a garbage call or did he actually go full-on Bowa and deserve that ejection?

That doesn't happen in the NBA - but Collins definitely 'earned' his ejection.

I want him to earn a fine as well - what was going on was an abomination. The refs NEED to be held accountable and it's pathetic what was going on - fortunately for the sixers, the clippers suck at the FT line it seems

There's an off-the-ball foul on Brand. Awesome. Just awesome. Three on Brand.

He was inbounds. Toe many have been on line. This is crazy.

he was definitely out of bounds.

Jodie on Mo, Jrue on Foye to start the second half. I'm wondering if that's strategy for better D or strategy to keep Jrue from getting his fourth.

JRUE!

Hot start third quarter.

Don't put lou williams in to mess it up Mike

I've noticed something on the Jodie threes and EB jumpers: The Clips overhelp like it's their job. Jrue made a great find, but he wasn't in the most threatening position ever. There's no need to leave Jodie like that, but we'll take it.

Neither Hawes nor Griffin dove for that ball - I didn't like that

Sixers have 2 mechanical bigs. The Clips 2 tremendous athletes.

Yet the Clips are one of the worst interior defensive teams I've seen.

How ba was Sam defensively early in his career?

Jrue with a sick fucking pass to EB for the slam. that's pretty basketball.

Not to be a cynic but under Michael Curry we look to be our best all season. Playing the Clippers may help, but still.

How stoned are you?

Holy shit, did you see Jrue work to get an angle to recieve the ball, and then the spin move on the post? Wow.

He did it again, but Hawes was in a crowd, and not ready (or that coordinated)

Jodie giving a shoutout to those who say he's just a bench player. This kid's for real. And the reason we need to use Turner to get us another piece to get better.

Because he can hit set 3's?

he can't defend
he can't score off the dribble

He's freaking Kyle Korver

He's a bench player - a good 3 point shooting bench player - but he's a bench player. Turner is a better overall basketball player than Meeks - and you'd probably see that if not for irrational hatred that is worse than Tray's obsession with Demarcus Cousins

He does so much more than that, and he's a heck of a defender. You see it your way, I see it mine.

And you're going to honestly say Korver is not better player than Turner? Come on...

I'm going to say ones been in the league a long time and one isn't.

We get it - you hate turner and after one season (ignoring his entire fucking history because it suits you) you're ready to write him off.

However, I hold no value in your opinion so it doesn't really matter.

Kyle Korver is a good bench player - who has been in the league a long time - comparing them is only something a gibbon does

And you still didn't answer the question. And for the last time I don't hate a player on my team, I hate his non-suitable weak-ass game.

See - there you go proving you care what people think about you and if they respect your opinion or agree with it. I answered your question the way I'm going to. I believe even Tray could figure out where I lean on the question. If you can't - well maybe the dementia that sets in when old folks retire is getting worse.

Please don't ever pretend you don't care what people think of your opinion. It just makes you seem even more pathetic you put something irrelevant in a post so you can basically say 'told you so told you so'

That didn't prove shit. Is Korver a better player than Turner? It's simple - yes? no?

It's funny you can say Meeks is nothing but a Korver and he's only been in the league for 1 1/2 years but judgment can't be passed on sacred Turner.

I answered the question the way I wanted to. If you can't understand more than a simple yes no that's not my problem.

Why does it matter so much to you huh? Thought the fact that no one agrees with you doesn't bother you?

user-pic
eddies' heady's reply to GoSixers on Mar 17 at 1:28

You agreeing or disagreeing really doesn't bother me. I respect other's differing opinions.

It matters because you stated that Turner was better than Meeks, then said Meeks was nothing but at best a Korver. So where's the difficulty in answering the very simple question:

Is Kyle Korver a better player than Evan Turner?

You already know he (Korver) is and that's why you won't answer because you painted yourself in a corner. If the answer is yes, then you'd have to acquiesce the argument that Meeks is better than Turner since you stated Meeks = Korver.

Right, John? Don't dance around it now....
