Sixers

, all the time

sixers -8, O/U 186

Sixers, over.

Was at the game lastnight and i thought it was great to see Doug take out Holiday after those two early turnovers. I was about 7 rows frows from behind the bench and you could just see him pointing out his mistakes. Hes a great coach!

Attendance is going to be down, the game conflicts with the great and powerful tebow

the games in washington so it will be down anyway

Washington gets fairly good crowds, considering their awful team. It's a strong NBA fan base with a downtown arena, both of which Philly lacks.

I think he meant it'll be down in Philly.

I just meant in general - wherver the game is - TEBOW is universal baby

He wins games. He can win games for the sixers, too.

I hate the patriots but i'm hoping they bitch slap the broncos and that the defense somehow doesn't play as stupid as the steelers did

I like Tim Tebow only because there are people out there who hate him with a passion. He also gives me hope- if that idiot can be a succesful quarterback in the NFL than I should be able to date a supermodel one day.

The Patriots are going to destroy the Broncos tonight. Brady is just too good.

Long term he won't be successful in the NFL - and I believe the 'passionate' hate comes from all the Tebow supporters who take any criticism of him similar to criticizing the savior Tebow praises too often (according to Kurt Warner, not me) publicly.

Tebow has a sub 50% completion rate, bad reads, and even his completed throws are wobbly and nutty...long term he won't last, the steelers ran a stupid offense against him last week...

I don't 'hate' tebow - i hate tebow worshippers who irrationally believe you can win a super bowl with a qb like him when you can't do it with michael vick or vince young or randall cunningham - who were hella more athletic than tebow in their primes

ah that makes sense, my bad

I'll give you 10 dollars if you go one week without saying 'downtown arena' and using it as an excuse for piss poor attendance?

Through five home games Sixers average about 13,400 per game and are ranked 29th in the league for attendance.

team the sixers have faced at home
DET,TOR,IND,SAC,WAS
when they starting facing better teams the numbers will rise(hopefully)

There are lots of bad teams in the NBA and good teams still draw fans when the bad teams show up...

true

I know you are trying really hard to find reasons why the attendance is bad at sixers games, but face it, the casual fan doesn't show up for a 'good team' - unless that 'good team' has made a name for in in the playoffs, they will show up for a 'less good' team if that team has a superstar...it's the society we live in, in this economy, it's bandwagon plain and simple, maybe some blame can be laid at the feet of the radio douches who seem to hate this team since when Iverson was here...

It's not the location, it's not the opponents, Philadelphia is not a good NBA city, it's a good COLLEGE basketball city for the same reason the big 10 is huge in cities where people don't normally go, or SEC football, or texas high school footbal, it's part of your culture, it's inbed to you, for me - i root for big 10 sports cause i went to a big 10 school, i root for temple cause my sister get her BA, PHD there, I root against villanova, cause my sister went to temple

As for my pro sports fanness - that's just cause of where i was born - no one 'made me' a fan of those teams

I grew up in the suburbs of philly, couple miles from city line avenue, and the sixers were the fourth most popular team back then as well (i'm 39 to give you reference)...I think the suburbs maybe feed the attendance more than the city? Who knows - I'm not a city sociologist :)

Tom Moore via Twitter:

#Sixers Rod Thorn on Rasheed Wallace: "If he had any interest in us, he would've already contacted us. We haven't heard from him."

I don't want Wallace, but I mean, if you're interested in him, you can't give him a call?

Yeah that doesn't make any sense to me, isn't Rod's job to call around? Rod scares me. When I see him all I can think about is Travis Outlaw, 5 years $35M. I'm honestly thankful we don't have cap space.

Next summer, "If Dwight Howard was interested in us, I think he would've called me."

ugh

Because Wallace has contacted other teams to say he's interested in playing for them. It's Thorns nice way of saying no we have no interest in Rasheed Wallace cause he's old and useless without having to say it

The sixers lack of even adding a journeyman bigman to take some minutes in blow outs since the speights trade is more on ownership (in my mind) - the speights trade was about saving money - not improving the roster...but hey - how about that no 'fan experience' at the games folks

They've got more than enough bigs for garbage time, they don't have anyone who's not in the regular rotation to run the point, so Turner has to be in there.

They need a big man who can actually play meaningful minutes.

They need a big man who can muscle someone :)

He sounds like a very passive GM. I remember him saying that the Sixers don't have the assets to trade for a superstar nor have the ability to sign one. I just wish he would show a little bit more enthusiasm.

Please tell me doug collins didn't say 'not going to watch no'

I'll be glad when we don't have to play this shit team anymore.

I don't buy all of this "The Wizards are talented" gusto either.

They are talented, the just aren't smart (basketball wise) or coached well...

the announcers however have to try and be positive

Come on guys - strong start

Fuck, my league pass is all screwed up. have to watch on ipad. this is going to be a pain.

I actually thought Jrue was looking a bit too much for his shot yesterday. He's the point-guard, he should look to make plays. We haven't seen many "drive and kick-out"'s.

Another rough start for Jrue offensively. That jumper was a good bit off. Would like to see him get in the lane.

He's passed on a couple shots and seemed hesitant to me (when he did) but now got the easy two on the fast break

Brand was wide open on the one shot by Jrue that Brand then interfered. Jrue should have seen him.

How is it a charge if the defender is still moving?

Nick Young with 10 first quarter points, that should never happen.

Terrible, terrible call...

That the first time I've seen Iguodala be selfish in a long time. Horrible turnover, love the thought either way!!

Horrible CALL

When your counter intelligence mission needs...?

Man, love some of these dc commercials

Terrible call on the charge. This LP nonsense is killing me, will have to just check in here during commercial breaks so I can watch on another screen and keep track of the rotations.

Neutralize Nick Young and tighten up your belt buckles and box somebody the eff out. Bench brigade time.

WHo on the bench brigade can box out?

PHI 23, WAS 26 after one.

Bad first quarter. Need to show some energy here early in the second. McGee is killing them.

Collins could sit the other four guys at the end of the quarter. It's always going to be a horrible Lou isolation.

Am I the only one with Lou dominating the ball so much? He is really becoming a black hole when he gets the ball. Once he gets the ball it just stops all movement.

That's really been the story of his career.

This also - isn't new - but this year he at least passes a bit more - not consistently - but what you're complaining about is lou's strength as a bench player

This quarter had one flaw: rebounding. Otherwise it was a good first quarter. The Wizards shot the ball well.

So shooting 39% is ok with you?

user-pic
Phil reply to GoSixers on Jan 14 at 19:42

I'm not worried about this value. It will go up.

That really wasn't the point - it was crappy in the first quarter - so was the FG% Allowed over 50% in combination with the bad rebounding

The wizards turn the ball over a lot - but the sixers were pretty bad in that quarter - and again - a good team would have been up like 10 or so

The Sixers haven't taken many bad shots. They've been sloppy on defensive rebounding. A lot of the TOV were forced by good D.

Atta boy, Thad.

There's a nice move by Jrue.

Jesus - this rebounding thing is terrible

Ugh, Lou about 5 feet too high.

Why is Lou guarding Wall?

the only reason we are in this game is because its the wizards. we look very sloppy tonight

Speak for yourself, I'm impeccably dressed

the 49ers fourced 5 turnovers - and they are going to lose this game?

I love Jrue, but Rubio would be insane on our team.
Jrue seems to think more shooting will lead him to the all-star game. He should think about setting up his teammates like he did last year.

He'd be insane on most teams

I'm not sure why you think Jrue's primary concern is making the all star team.

Jrue is shooting more but he rarely takes a bad shot

Saints tie up the game. xtra point pending!!

Nitpicking and this is the last time (I promise), but Jrue's floor game is leaving a lot to be desired.

Passing off the penetration like that has been an issue for me this year - I don't think it's nit picking - it's just been bad -0 he's also bad when double teamed :)

He's rushed, and confused it looks like to me. When he's on, everything looks slow.

Back to the starters now, finish the half better than you started it.

Bad turnover, Jrue. Come on, man.

AI9 on the break.

What exactly is the rationale of going back to the starters, who once again stunk? Baffling to me.

What's funny about that? The guy has 17 points on 9 shots to go along w/ 4 boards, 2 assists and 5 steals.

Come on - we know you just love Iguodala

Dont get me wrong, thats a great/half game for Iguodala. GREAT. Now do it for a season!!

The Wizards would have 28 or so points if it wasn't for Hawes.

Put a body on him, Spence. Heat check for AI9.

Dear NBA

Please don't schedule any games that conflict with NFL Divisional weekend any jmore - k thx bye

I don't think I've seen a team not take care of the ball worse than the Wizards in that first half.

111 OFR in the first half, 85 DFR.

The fucking pats just handed the ball to a tight end who ran for like 40 yards.

knicks are starting bibby at PG and Shumpert at SG

Heh.

oh and bill walker is starting for melo who is hurt and not playing

Ugh, 4/13 for Jrue in the first, and he gets blocked to start the third. 4/14.

Spence.

Hmmm....inauspicious start to the third

Ugh, 4/15. Had people coming if he slowed down.

You can really see how they run the offense through Hawes at the high post, which the Wizards are also doing on the O-Glass.

Great find, Jrue. EB jam. More of that.

And that's four on spencer

Here's hoping this is an aberration and not the return of the 'real' spencer

4 on Spence. Gonna be a long rest for him.

Doug left him in - not sure why

they gave it to jodie instead

Wiz announcers didn't say anything - thx

Once again Meeks has disappeared!!

Hawes is still in, did they call that on someone else?

Two nice finds from Jrue to EB. See, that's what I want to see more of. Get in the paint, and get somebody else a shot.

They got a bucket on that for Spence, but a back dribble might be the next step in Jrue's development. Instead of trying to take on McGee, if once he gets in the paint there's a back dribble, he's got Meeks for a three. It's just reading the rotations.

Nothing that grandiose to me - what I want is the bench guys to keep the starters on the bench - no runs like last night

This is one of those games where you realize that whether or not the offense is there - quality defense is going to keep you in a game and possibly help you win it as well - defense has been there in every game this year - have they had a DFR above 100 this year?

Utah game, I think. I can check in a second. And they've had 11 steals twice this season.

Hey I was just parroting what the announcers said :)

Actually, they had 11, 12, 13, 10, 10 and then 10 so far tonight. Iverson had 11 by himself in a playoff game.

I am good with Lou right now - just don't make a stink if he's not out there in the guts of the game all of the time

Oh - i agree with you totally there - i've noticed his improve passing - i mean he's not a point guard - but at this point he might be playing bettera t the point than jrue some nights - sadly.

but defensively he still isn't good

Nick Young has 19 shot attempts and no assists. That's just so impressive for someone who handles the ball that much.

IVAN make basket

Jordan Crawford is one ugly man. Looks like he should be guarding a clock tower somewhere.

Where is our defense ?

Come on, it's down to 15. Wake the fuck up.

Damn it - starters back in

How about mixing in a stop?

Get Lou off of Wall, please.

In fact, put Turner in for Lou. Need fucking stops.

Doug doesn't want to seem to play Turner with the injury. Interesting how careful he is with a guy that he didn't put in for a whole quarter.

or maybe his second half appearance aggravted the injury when he sat down

Doug Collins is not out to get evan turner

Yeah, like I said, the injury.

Just because he isn't out to get him doesn't mean that Turner shouldn't have to wait 11 1/2 minutes to get some burn.

nothing 'holey' about it, its pretty much all day everyday fact at this point. all day. I thought it was eloquent how you pointed out the overtly obvious.

Well, once we lose another game, I guess you can chime in with your thoughts on him.

Now that I think about it, Collins was right to hold him tonight. He did look hurt.

but on second thought, though the comment wasn't meant that way initially, yeah there is some hidden irony in there. heh

14 pts 6 assists 5 rebounds

Only andre and lebron had averages like that last year - but iguodala isn't very good

They're free.

man - so good most of the game - now lebron like in clutch time

Thanks for your input - we'll pass your comments on to the appropriate folks and get right back to you

I don't wanna know what Iguodala's 4th quarter free throw percentage is so far this year.

Who is Jrue guarding? I mean, whoever it is, they won't abuse Lou like Wall is right now. Switch that shit up, Doug.

Way to make that extra pass lou

Good ball movement to beat the press.

And then Lou jacks up a quick three. Come on.

next possesion they slowed it down (next two even) both times thad missed the open jumper

NBA needs to institute a new rule - you say 'and one' you get a technial

And Wall's 8th turnover should seal it. Thad draws the charge.

Looks like Doug really wanted to make sure it was a win tonight, by the way he subbed.

Happened last night too - the bench couldn't get stops so doug sat their asses down - they let em back in both nights

Knicks down 23 at the half - boston down 10 in the 4th

Boston just smoked

PHI 103, WAS 90 Final.

Wasn't happy with the defense in the fourth at all, but I'll take the 13-point win. Rest up tomorrow and be ready to battle on Monday, fellas.

just from watching it would seem that the rebounding at least improved?

76% in the second half. Much better.

Very much so

Though these first half 'let downs' have to stop -seriously - teams like the heat, the bulls, even the magic are going to put the pedal down unlike the wizards and make those 3rd quarter starts a lot less impactful when the team is down 10-15 points at half - at this point it's a pattern to me though others still think it's noise - and it's on doug to figure out what it is and repair it

That is a SICK line by 'Dre - 23/7/5/5

Hope the Olympic Commitee is paying attention.

This was a good win. It will bring them - and us fans - back to earth a bit. There were a lot of blowouts lately and this young team should not become heady.

McGee is a beast.

If our front court sucked defensively we wouldnt be the best defensive team so far in the season. Brand is a very solid defender. And hawes has held his own thus far.

I'd still take him over half the centers in the league

I hope not. I know this sounds selfish, but I hope he doesn't make the Olympics. Was injured all last year because of the world championships.

Yeah, I kind of feel the same way. It's great for him, and good for Team USA, but for the Sixers, it blows.

I don't believe the 'jackasses' would be slapped in the face any more than they'd start respecting him for his defense - these are people who still use batting average and FG% to discuss sports...

I prefer he not be on the olympic team as well for purely selfish reasons...

Can nba teams prevent non US players from playing for their international teams? I never really have been clear on that

It would be one more argument to make against these dumbass fans. The fact that he beat out superstars like Monte Ellis, Danny Granger, Rudy Gay, and Eric Gordon to make the team.

I don't think teams can prevent players from playing in the Olympics. I think the Rockets were upset with Yao for playing in 08'

NYK cut the lead to 27. I'm getting nervous.

the thunder were 6 for 11 in the third - the knicks had twice as much shots but yet only made 6 as well - i mean i know carmelo is out - but dear god they're just bad

If the knicks lose tonight, the sixers will be the only team in the atlantic above 500 - when was the last time that happened 10 games into the season?

Doug sure must want Jrue to snap out of his funk, playing him 40 minutes and all, and looking like he told him to go find his shot too, what with 17 shot attempts. He's got to realize he doesn't need to do that when he's that off, and look to get his teammates going. He looked to be pressing for most of the night. Just relax and it'll come kid.

Kings looking like they won't break the record for fewest points in a half after all. But they still have a chance.

And you better mark it down because how in the hell did Thaddeus Young get to the line six times? Bet it's been a while since he got there that many. He was quietly efficient too.

This game was similar to that game last week where they turned it over like 20 times and still won. Tonight they get slaughtered on the boards but still win. Rare to see that, and to me, another sign that this team is on to something. Or, guess you can be thankful the Wiz coughed it up so much maybe.

The Sixers of the NFL won tonight. That would be like us beating Boston in the playoffs.
