, all the time

sixers -13, O/U 187

Does anyone still remember that this is a matchup of the #1 and #2 draft pics from last year?

The Wizards have started to play better ball as of late. I wouldn't be surprised if this game is close.

I would be surprised if we lose, however.

in fantasy, would you guys start Javale McGee tonight or Bogut, who's playing in Dallas?

Probably Bogut.

yea, i don't know if Hawes playing makes it more or less likely McGee will have a good game lol

I always worry when the sixers play against big men who could/should be talented, they haven't figure it out yet but bltache and mcgee could be a dangerous combo and the sixers front court defensively is just weak - always worries me that teams are going to take more davantage than they usually do

But Blatche is essentially a perimeter player and McGee isn't an offensive player at all.

Offensive boards and dunks for McGee. If he can limit himself to that, he's efficient, but apparently he can't.

Blatche is terrible. McGee is a decent player, defensively and potential-wise anyway.

Got my tickets for Monday's game. Have a feeling it's going to be a big crowd, couldn't find too many tickets on Sixers.com and StubHub didn't have many available either.

Let me know the next time you are heading into Philly for a game. Now that I'm in town more I'd like to see if I can catch a game or two.

Actually, just send me an email the next time you might be in Philly for a game.

will do. Think Monday afternoon might be a decent crowd w/ a bunch of kids, which would be nice. I kind of wish teams would do daytime games on the weekends/holidays more often. Feel like it's tough to get kids to games that start at 7pm, at least younger kids. Weekend baseball games are great for kids.

I thinks there is a good chance the Sixers lose tonight.

1. They are not fully recovered from 5 games in 6 nights. I work 24+ hour shifts, and it is often after you finally have a day off that you feel the strain.

2. I don't buy that the Sixers are suddenly good enough that they no longer play down to bad teams. That stretch of 6 convincing wins was great, but it could still just be a hot streak (which the Sixers have had many in the past 5 seasons.) I'll probably be skeptical for at least the first half of the season.

So IMO this game could either be a close loss or another win. But even another blowout win would not yet sell me that this team is at a much higher level than the last 66 games of last season.

The last 66 games of last season was what, 38-28? That might be enough to win the Atlantic this year. Is the expectation much higher than that right now? What, like 45-21? That seems lofty to me.

Fair enough. Had the Sixers won a few more and gotten the 5 seed they might have made it past the 1st round. And that is how I see this year's team.

But a lot of the recent hype surrounding the team suggest they are good to where they are only worse than maybe the top 4 teams. If that is the case they should rarely lose to a bad team and probably be a bit over 500 against average and good teams. That could be accurate, but I have watched this team too closely these past few years to get on board yet.

I think they are better than the national consensus heading into the season, but worse that where the talking heads have placed thenm as of last week.

I just don't see the tired thing really coming into play tonight. It's not like Wednesday where the schedule set them up to fail. Everybody in the league will be tired, and they just had an off day. The Wiz played four games those same six days too.

It's tough to think they will lose tonight. They could, or even just play a close game, but that doesn't mean that they aren't a good team. There have been a lot of good teams that have played close to their competition. The fact that they had blowing teams out is a luxury, not really a necessity to talk about how good they are. The barometer to me is how they play against good teams.

Screw the talking heads, Doug's the only head talking they way these guys look. You wait it out, which you should do (getting on board), but this team is legit.

If they just had a teenie-weinee bit better big, ugh I don't even want to begin to think.

bad thing for the sixers, blatche out today and tomorrow

He caught Sixersitis. I'm surprised that Wall was immune to that malady.

Haha bulletsforever blog says they're playing at the first union center tonight! What a b from the p

iggy should start on young and meeks on singleton right?

Should, but probably won't. He hasn't been doing any cross-matching at all at the start of games. If young is shooting well early, he'll make the change, but expect Young to get some clean looks early.

First game ive walked up for this season and somehow my $10 upper level ticket had a $5 processing fee, not cool...at least they have programs printed up now...

Looks like I've got the Sixers in HD for tonight's game on LP. Their choices were PHI/WAS, IND/TOR, DET/CHA.

Nice, Philly broadcast. They've got footage of Hawes working on his sissy hook, excellent.

I think it was more sitting Jrue than putting Lou in.

It seems that in pro sports the best way to teach a player anything is to bench him and yell at him - even if a less talented player comes in - yes

PHI 54, WAS 40 at the half. Pretty blah second quarter, but they wound up tacking 4 onto their lead. Come out strong in the third and put them to sleep.

Bismack having a big game! Though 0-2 from the field, lowering his FG% to 37% (a tick higher than his FT%), he has 5 blocks in 6 minutes.

Lot of time left but, I was amazed at others that felt this team would struggle vs this type of team tonight. Even the possibility of it seems to have been removed. They will, for sure, slip up a time or two vs some they shouldn't, but this unit, is a force to be reckoned with nightly.

And their true worth won't be validated if they lose to the Wiz or beat the Heat. They'll probably do both, but let's judge them on when they count, the after-season.

Doug and this staff deserve a lot of credit, but not to take away at what's evolving.

I wish they could save some of these baskets for tight games.

Lou is freaking unconscious tonight.

Bernard seems to think this is still a rebuilding team.

Who is that making these garbage shots for the Wiz? The guy Lou doesn't feel like guarding? Hate these Wiz unis, can't see the numbers.

Usually a high energy unit too. Starters are more often the lethargic ones. This is unacceptable though.

I don't know if they have stopped them this quarter and Turner/Brand just let one slip through their hands.

They feel a bit too good about themselves.

OK, so they currently sit at 9th in the conference.

Miami, Chicago, Sixers, Orlando, Indiana, and the Knicks are all better than them. Atlanta lost Horford, they were better than Boston with him, still probably are without him. That's 7.

The rest of the teams aren't very good, it would probably have to be Cleveland or Milwaukee. Thing is, they most likely get Miami or Chicago in Round 1 even if they make the playoffs.

That is a too-hard decision, cause Lou was just fabulous, though so was Jodie, he was even more than fabulous when you look back at it. Sterling.

Malik Rose.

is jodie POTG?

yes!

This late run in the 4th was important for tomorrow's game. Will be a lot harder though...

Pretty good game for Wall. Managed as many assists as TOs and raised his FG % with a 3 for 8.

Eh, I can't kick dirt on Wall's grave w/ the clunker Jrue just put up. At least Jrue didn't pound his chest after that monster dunk in a 30-point game.

couldn't help myself - I've been underwhelmed by Wall since the first time I saw him. Jrue has been so inconsistent this year - have to think he'll shake it off.

I was watching the raptors the day before they played the sixers, against the nets i think, and man they couldn't stop talking about that damn thing. It's very cool, perspective is a fun art thing to play with, loved it in middle school, when a ball boy or something sits on the base line in the right place they look like they're floating

Bulls celtics on ESPN right now

Jamaal Magloire airballing the FT for Toronto... what is he doing in there for the last play of the game? WTF?!

and they inbound it to him! That's just hilarious.

Sammy plays 33 min. scores, 21 points, grabs, 16 rebounds, and blocks 4 shots crazy.

And so completely shuts down Cousins that Cousins implodes and has to be benched for almost all of the second half.

What a force Sam would be if he could play inspired ball every night.

Yes. A great lead-in to my box scores comment. Tonight, Kobe had his third straight 40-point game, dropping 42 on a .500 Cavs team. He now averages 31. Nets beat the Suns on the road - Williams had a huge night, 35 and 14 assists on 18 shots. Brooks added 20. Gortat led the Suns with 20 and 10. In the MIN-NOH game, Love had 34 and 15, Wesley Johnson continued to shoot his way out of the league with a 1-8 night for three (23.5% on the year), and Chris Kaman was 0-10. MIA lost its third straight, getting blown out by Denver in spite of a 35/5/6 night from LeBron (who again struggled from the foul line). Lawson had 24 and 9 assists on 9-11 shooting, perfect from inside the arc. In SAC-HOU, Dalembert, as you alluded to, had 21 and 16 with 4 blocks; Lowry had 25, 7 and 9 on 15 shots. Cousins had 3 blocks in 18 minutes, but was ineffectual otherwise. Indiana pulled it out over Toronto behind a big night from George Hill. Hansbrough tied his season-high 2 assists. Charlotte got blown out at home by a 2-9 Detroit team. Monroe had 19, 9 and 5; for the Bobcats, Bismack blocked 5 shots in 12 minutes, while missing all 3 of his shots, dropping his FG% to 35.7%.

Indiana pulled it out over Toronto behind a big night from George Hill.

Granger got tossed from that game, and Toronto really just gave it away late. First, Amir Johnson missed a FT that would've given them the lead, then he committed a bad foul on the other end, then they had a shot to tie it, but for some reason they not only had Jamaal Magloire on the floor, but they passed the ball right to him on the inbound play. He was fouled, airballed the first FT (missed by about 6 feet, literally), then bricked the second and that was the game. Was hoping TOR would pull that one out. There's a big log jam at the top of the Eastern Conference, pretty much rooting against every other team that could possibly be in contention for the 2-5 seeds.

Sam signed a one year deal with Houston for how much? Houston has one of those stathead Billy Beane type flip everything of value for draft pick GMs, no? and *how much* exactly is that trade exception from trading Speezy...?

About $5M less than Dalembert's making.

dislike...unless how much is Nocioni making this year again...?
