, all the time

I actually think that Thad is an inch or so taller than when he was drafted (at age 18.) He measured out the same height as Iguodala at the pre-draft, but IMO Thad is clearly taller than him now.

Took Jrue over 16.5 points/assists tonight. Hoping he pays out.

Tonight is the Jazz's home opener. The Jazz's has beat us the last six times we played them. Jazz has us 33 wins, 8 losses in our last 41 match up's. Sixer's better not take tonight lightly.

Totally agree, can't take this team lightly, in that building especially in the opener.

this should help, @Sixers Heads up #Sixers fans : Jazz C Al Jefferson (inflamed right ankle) will not dress tonight. Derrick Favors will start.

That could just as easily help the Jazz. He was 2/16 the other night.

Keeping Millsap and Favors off the offensive glass is going to be a challenge. I'd actually prefer to see the bigs just put a body on those guys and let the perimeter guys come in to clean up the glass.

What I'd like to see tonight, is Jrue containing and cutting off Devin Harris's penetration for the most part. He's had lapses when defending these types in the past, though not sure if definitely versus Harris. Would like to see him bear down, and be gritty with it; stout.

Line jumps from -3 to -5 from Jefferson injury alone.

CJ Miles is the spokesman for the team. Awesome. 20-point win, please.

Yeah, probably.

If Jrue would just make that move end up where he can use the glass on the block, look out.

eddies' heady's reply to Rich on Dec 30 at 22:00

No offense, but he's just average, to me. Seen nothing to notice a discernable diffenence from his first season. Short, small timeframe though, but just saying. Meaning, nothing about him falls in the 'stand out' category - he just kind of blends in with the rest of the second teamers out there. I'm aware you're rooting hard for him though and have admitted you're biased, but something just ain't there.

Nice drive, AI9.

Great attack by Dre.

Lou's man, there?

Excellent cut/drive/finish by Jrue.

Starting to give up easy looks to Utah on defense. Good timeout by Doug.

BTW off-topic, but I saw Sammy Dalembert's brother play for his high school team today. Not a bad player.

Only 2 assists for the starters (Jrue and AI9).

Gotta be better on the defensive end...the jazz are getting some real good looks they just aren't making em.

Jrue got plastered by that screen. Not good.

If they put favors back in - the sixers are going to have problems - cause no one can stop him on this roster if he posts up.

They aren't taking advantage of it yet - but voose seems to know how to 'roll' much better than Hawes out of the P&R

user-pic
eddies' heady's on Dec 30 at 22:05

Damn, Hawes just flailed like he was in Pamplona.

Sissy drive with no finish. And Lou's foul on Harris will give the Jazz the lead. Think Collins needs to settle these guys down, and sit Hawes down for his last two offensive possessions.

I don't know the exact moment the 'lead was built' but it seemed to be mostly bench players (and mostly favors on the bench)

Nah, it was pretty consistently built up over the first 16 minutes of the game.

Just my perception then

There's a way to stop runs like this - not sure how - but the sixers don't have it -a nd the offense has gone stagnant and awful

Lou getting his own medicine thrown back at him by Harris, have to stop ball way before he get to the foul line.

On second watch, that's a really crappy foul call. Harris got a slight bump from Lou, and fell to the ground. It's crappy with how physical Utah is being allowed to play on defense.

Interesting subs, Thad for Brand and Turner for Lou. Iguodala playing the point.

Wow, one play for Turner and back to the bench, Lou back in.

Rubio has a double double and the wolves are up 4 with 2 minutes to play - something to cleanse the pallet at half time

PHI 51, UTA 53 at the half. Erase that second quarter from your memory, get out there and do your fucking job in the second half. This should be a laugher right now.

user-pic
eddies' heady's on Dec 30 at 22:17

We've made our fair share of boneheaded mistakes but, they're merely outhustling us to a degree. Just feeding off the home court energy. All the good things we were doing, they just vanished, like combos aren't understanding each other or something. They look like strangers at times, which can be expected, but no excuse though training camp or not, they're pros.

Looking at the advanced stats, turnovers were a little higher than you'd like in the first half, but mostly we're just fouling them too much. All the other numbers are good.

Early in the game Jrue and Andre just pretty much gave it away - Jrue just dribble into a double team with no plan...it was painful...wanted to throw stuff at the tv

They only have 7. That's not terrible. 2 for Jrue, Iguodala, and Hawes each.

They'll be fine if they can match Utah's energy. Agree w/ what Eddies' said above.

Oh I know it's not as bad as it was in Portland, but some of those turnovers are so avoidable - they're just boneheaded - and Jrue's done it consistently in the first 3 games - he just starts going and seems unsure what to do if someone gets in his way

Wade just has no conscience...jesus that shot

um...who is this majorly shady looking John Nash guy doing the halftime show, and where did the incredibly awkward Lynam and Lynam show go??

I don't have the Philly feed. Actually watching the MIN/MIA finish. Wade just took a terrible shot and hit it.

Nice pass, LeBron.

Nice FT shooting when it counts timberwolves :)

What a sloppy 30 seconds in Minnesota. Horrible decision by LeBron to throw that outlet. Tolliver with a chance to take the lead at the line. 1st one is a ridiculously favorable roll. 2nd is way short. Miami with a chance to win. Tie ball game, 6 secs.

The great Rubio missed a free throw as well in the last 2 minutes

Give it to wade - get out of the way

Nice pass Lebron - though you won't get credit

What a play.

Yep, no one's gonna defend that...

Not for nothing but does Andre Iguodala need to shoot more?

When he has Gordon Hayward guarding him?

Just in general so far this year, seems like he's quiet to me...less involved offensively

OK, second half. Jump out like you did in Phoenix.

I'd like to see them force some more turnovers this half. Only 4 TO's for Utah in the first half.

Turner the next victim of the Raja flop.

Turner's gotta get to the rim. The refs have to call Bell for a foul if they are giving that Turner. Raja was murdering ET on the cut and holding his shirt. That was an offensive flop.

Evan threw an arm into - I saw it clearly - flop or now - he pushed him out of the way - it was a foul on evan

I saw it. They should call it both ways. Bell was all over him on the other end.

Man - the difference between watching a game in HD and SD is just nuts...

Luckily the J miss. Come on, have to bring it when starters come back in. Hope EB has something left, feed him, he looked good early, though doesn't mean necessarily late. Let's see though. Big game on the front end.

Letting the Jazz in this game at this point is a bad sign.

Trying to defend Favors with Hawes and not getting favors in foul trouble is the bad sign

Starters were +8 in the first 6:47 of that quarter. Once the bench came in, they only scored 4 points in the final 5:13.

That shot is my definition of Jrue Holiday. He takes shots when the D least expects it. Of course the extended definition includes how he loses his handle the closer he is to the basket. Turnover prone?

Voose got like .1 inches of air on that rebound attempt.

is he playing bad defense? Is he taking bad shots and just standing around on offense?

He needs to get Iguodala back in there right now if he wants this game. Might cost you tomorrow night's game, though.

My "first 11" prediction was going to include a bonus prediction: 2 POTG's for Hawes. I pussed out, but damn, if Lou didn't breakout in Portland I would have nailed it.
