Driving from Birmingham to Atlanta to see the 6ers in the "highlight factory" hopefully they can bounce back2nite. Their 1st visit to Atlanta last season was the first game Meeks was inserted in the starting lineup. They blew a 20 point lead, hopefully that doesn't happen 2nite.

I don't believe in 'momentum' from one game to the next (unless it's a playoff series), I don't believe in 'must wins' as long as it's not the game that ends your season. I believe that a 4 point loss to the nets or the blazers counts just as much as a 20 point loss to the heat. They're each one game.

However, I also believe, that the only game that matters is the one you're playing next. Not the game the night before where you embarassed yourself in the fourth quarter and not the next game where Kobe comes to town...those don't matter.

The only game that matters is the game in front of you.

I want to see that mentality in the first quarter, I want to see that the players on the team have put last night behind you and moved on, because that's how you get it done, that's how you succeed. I'm sure in the locker room they talked about it, and doug went over it, and maybe there's some things to work on in practice, but the game is one, it shouldn't be thought about any more, and they will show that by coming out strong in the first quarter...strong defense and better offense.

And while there's a lot of the 'winner 'clutch' stuff I don't buy into, and I don't buy in the 'wants to win' nonsense because I don't believe any player wants to lose, I believe that the ability to put the last game behind you, win or lose, and just focus on what's next, what's in front of you is vital, and I want to see that in the first quarter tonight...I want to see in their play that last night is already out of their memory, regardless of what the fans or the espn heads have to say about it, that's irrelevant...

No way to tell, but he certainly wouldn't have hurt in the Nets and Knicks games. The Miami games probably go the same way w/ or w/out him.

do you think doug limits spencer's mintues or because hes playing hes a full go?

It looks like he may compliment our two centers well. He seems to play closer to the hoop than the Elton we are seeing now and sure sets good screens.

OK, made it home just in time. So Spence is playing and Brand may not, huh? That's not good.

Battle for third place at MSG tonight. 3rd of a back-to-back-to-back for the Knicks. I believe the Knicks could be the first team to go 0-3 on one of those if they lose this one.

Hope Lou's on, sure he'll get his shots up tonight being back at home.

If he isn't on, I hope Collins cuts back his minutes because he'll shoot them out of it.

sure will be interesting to see how Lavoy does starting tonight...if we see a lineup of him, V8, Jrue, ET and...idk, Meeks or Lou, wouldn't that be the youngest lineup they've used all year?

Aaaand we're off...Hawes loses the tip, picking up right where he left off.

Anyone know how Dwight Howard has been on tipoffs this year? ...better than the 0-22 we are this season?

The sixers aren't 0-22 in tips

Bleh, Johnson and Iguodala both miss jumpers on their teams' first possessions. Lucky break on the o-board and Meeks misses a three.

A little of both, but I think he still gets some veteran / superstar calls even though he is a former superstar and not a current one. He pushes off alot too.

Yep, Meeks for Jrue.

Willie long two, and another fucking o-board for them.

Keep this unit in after this timeout Doug. Lou, Jodie, ET, Lavoy, Hawes.

I'd bring AI9 back in to cover Joe Johnson. He's 0/4 since that fast start, don't want him to get hot.

I don't like lou and jodie on the floor at the same time, defensively

Another good find by Turner

Hey doug remember that 'point forward' idea you ran last year - how about doing that on the second team with lou and evan?

Hawes w/ the flat-footed block on Josh Smith. Heh. That's more embarrassing than being posterized, in my book.

That Hawks heat commercial was poorly timed :)

Man - Blake Griffin is going to get his nose broken this season -

Man, Meeks and Turner both playing well. That sucks so bad. Certain folks can't even badmouth someone. It really blows when two guys on the team both play their roles and help the team win.

Don't like that shot from Dre. contested, early in clock

He didn't?

he went 2nd, right before cp3

nice move voose

Voose w/ the up-and-under!

Nice move

Does Voose have a better overall offensive game than Hawes?

Scoring game, yeah. He can do stuff besides shoot 20-footers. Hawes' passing has a value, though.

Voose can pass too

And shoot 3's :)

You must be psychic

It's really close. I think Voose has more of an instict to post up. Hawes is more confident in his jumper.

I think it's more that Voose has more 'athleticism' than Hawes really - he just 'flows' - Hawes moves never look natural to me

They don't look natural cause he is not comfortable in the paint. Voose knows how to play big. Never brings dribbles or brings the ball below his shoulders. Thats how bigs should play.

These refs are ridiculous tonight. The main reason I want AI9 to be an all star is maybe he'd finally get some respects from the officials.

PHI 57, ATL 41 at the half.

What a great fucking run by the bench there. Just outstanding.

This is proof beautiful things can happen when Lou looks for a teammate instead of a shot at the end of the quarter.

Beautiful things happen when lou looks for a teammate often - not just at the end of the quarter

I wasn't really liking the energy at the start - but the hangover seemed to wear off early in the second

Jrue + AI9 are 2/12 for 5 points. And the Sixers shot 55.3% from the floor, scored 57 points in the half and lead by 16. Wow.

Jrue also - no assists and 2 turnovers

Lou - 4 dimes and 0 turnovers

May see Doug limit Jrue's minutes in the 2nd half like he did in the 1st.

If Lou keeps playing like this, that's what he should do. Teague got a little bit hot there in the second, but not enough to matter.

Any idea what the record is for points in a quarter without a free-throw attempt? 37 is pretty steep.

Notice therree is no drop off between Brand and Allen as a starter?

Lavoy needs to watch his fouls.

and maybe provide more than a 24 minute sample size...

True. That's rookie mistakes. He still plays D with his hads beore his feet. Could he be Brand's long term replacement? That's what I am hoping for.

user-pic

That is true, but this is not the kind of game where Brand is pivotal. He was outstanding against Orlando when we had to guard Dwight.

Lob What?
We are City of Brotherly BLOW-OUTS, guys~

Pacers/Magic knotted at 39 at the half. Rooting for ORL there.

Nets up on the Knicks early.

That's more like a push to me.

How much fun was that second quarter?Man!Unbelievable that we're shooting 55% as a team but Igoudala and Holiday are a combined 2-12!

Is it just me or is Evan Turner playing some of his best ball of the season?3/4 for 7, 4 board, 4 assists, credited w/ 1 steal though he had a hand in a couple others, and 1 turn. Jodie also deserves special mention, he was a ball of energy on both ends-3 steals. That was most definitely "Good Lou"-SWEET Lou, one might even say!Thad giving the kind of performance we begin to take for granted

Just a thing of beauty, even if Jrue is in the doghouse and rightfully so-1/7 for 2, 1 board, no dims, 2 steals and 2 turns. Like to see him come out with something to prove in the 3rd. And I'd like to see ET gun for the trip-dub!

GOT to finish this one out....I was grinning ear to ear for the whole second quarter...

Turner has had quarters (and games) like that before this year - he hasn't strung a bunch in a row together - he's stil real up and down (and that's on him not doug collins ;) )

sorry, Jrue was 1/5, not 1/7...'Dre was 1/7 for 3, though he had a far better half all around than Jrue-4 boards, five assists...could conceivably get close to the triple double if he can get some shots to fall but really not worth mentioning unless rebounding/assist pace continues in 3rd

ivan johnson starting the 2nd half

Alright, let's put them to sleep early here in the third.

Lavoy in the paint.

Too easy for Marvin on the other end.

We need to see so patience out of Jrue in the third.

The refs can't even save the Hawks so far-- 12 PFs called on the Sixers, as opposed to 2 on Atlanta, and we're still up big.

Cause that energy was from the 'night shift'

When was the last time the Sixer had 2 seven footers on the court at the same time?

Good question. I can't remember it ever happening.

Mutumbo and Geiger maybe?

Thank goodness Jrue made that, wasn't sure what he was trying to do on that possession.

Bleh. Got to the rim but nowhere to go w/ it. Getting handsy on the defensive end. Tired legs.

love me some voose

Good pass Dre, good shot Vuc.

VOOSE!

8 dimes for Iguodala.

Voooose agin at the end of a quarter

SWEET pass by AI9 back to V8...just keep hitting those and play keepaway for a few more minutes..

Voose is on tonight

They should bring in Turner for Jodie for defense to close the game

OKAY, I AM READY TO REGRADE THE SIXERS DRAFT NOW

Come on, dig deep here. Just F.I.N.I.S.H. Gonna be hard, but seek it.

Shouldn't have switched that. No need. Just go under and give him the 20-footer if he wants it. Bleh. 11-point game.

ugh so sick of this stupid beer commercial with GoSixers at the bar complaining about everything

Teague totally palmed the ball there.

why is lou in?

To take terrible shots.

I'm actually very surprised the Hawks are showing some resiliency for a chance.

Lou is back in? What the fuck is wrong with Collins tonight?

NICE shot by 00...and another assist for AI9...

That was a BS call on Hawes there. no foul man

Lou comes in, guns and misses. Good Lou first half, bad Lou second half

You know it's a bad call when the other team's announcer says it was the wrong call.

and a board for Dre, how many is that now?

I'd like to see a replay of that "foul" on AI9.

8 boards for Iguodala.

Yes, Hawes turnaround J!

Hawes again!

10 dimes for AI9.

WOW maybe they did miss 00...is it time to put tray tables up yet?

Ivan Johnson tips ball away on a strong effort play, steps out of bounds, creates microcosm of entire career thus far.

That's brilliant

Why is Lou in the game right now?

Is Spencer Hawes actually Kobe Bryant trapped in the body of a large, doughy white man?

Did you really need to change your screen name again?

Are you kidding, or trolling? I can't tell

Man, you're just that Wyclef Song by another name

Hm. You're being an idiot right now, and I know it, but you don't know it. Awkward situation all around.

Damn Dre, just terrible.

Again. What the fuck was that Iggy?

I hop Dre is building his house next to Josh Smith's. They'd be fun neighbors.

I like that

AI9 just saves Lou from wrecking that possession...so he can do so again...

Lou w/ the dagger roll!!!! Yes yes yes

Lou with gets the roll

Bismack Biyombo is starting for the bobcats tonight

...that doesn't count as an assist for Iggy though, does it? he did kind of hand the ball over to Lou just before that stand around, wait for ten seconds, jack up bad shot...

Nah, but he's got those ten already. Not going to get the boards, I don't think. May get fouled and split a pair for the points.

25 Fouls on the Sixers, 11 on the Hawks. What a joke.

these refs are gonna get a talking too

Nah, man, this is just gonna keep happening until we trade for a marquee star like Monta Ellis or John Wall.

I see your poinr but don't agre with the guys you listed

Heh. Neither do I.

Dre shooting way too much tonight. He wants to get the double double, that's the only explanation i have for those 2 jumpers.

Both were against the shot clock, no?

Not too much just very difficult shots

Lou is the only player I'm comfortable with in isolation. Maybe Brand as well.

Good win. But...

This 5 didn't deserve to be on the floor to close the game, I really don't know why they did. Collins didn't make much sense down the stretch tonight

I'd much rather Collins make lineups that can match up with the Hawks players and what they're trying to do than just play whoever is hot.

Yeah you want Iguodala to be on the bench at the end of the game. He sucks, doesn't he?

I didn't mean all 5 of them, I meant the rotation as a whole.

I don't really have to explain myself to you, so you can fuck off. They won and I'm happy that they won so that's the end of it.

That's great, but when you say, "this 5" that is easily interpreted as all five players.

It's a shame you don't have to reduce yourself to that level with the name-calling.

Way to take a benign comment and turn it into an "Iguodala bashing" one. Man, you were just chomping at the bit to make that association. Huge stretch.

It was intended as a joke, but thanks for the unnecessary judgement.

PHI 98, ATL 87 Final.

Big win. Think Hawks cut the lead to under 10 for like 15 seconds. Good finish. 3-1 week w/ 4 games against those teams? Great week.

3-1 so far during hell week, and the one they were right in the game for three quarters...this team just continues to impress...woah but is it just that camera angle or does Hawes look JUST like that dbag Brian Wilson??

Spencer screwed up a bit early, but he was rather good tonight for his first game from such a long layoff. He was just as good as Vucevic also coming off a layoff. Work-man-like effort from both guys tonight. Kudos.

Got killed on the overall boards

Only shot 9 free throw attempts to 27 for the Hawks

Only 2 fast break points, after 16 in 1st half

Best all-around player gunning to a 3-15

Still win by 11? Sign of a really good team.

Glad to see Hawes back. Voose was good.

A win is a win is a win. 3-1 for this week is great.

Voose was pretty good on offence

bench for POTG?

Lou Williams used to be amazing at getting to the line but now that the refs have eliminated the hand in the cookie jar rule and have limited the continuation foul, he's had a tougher time.

Good point

Lou is still getting to the line at an amazing rate. I'm pretty sure he's in the top 20 in FTs made.

Collins giving major props to Lavoy and Vucevic in the postgame, the rest of the team likes them, they both are "pretty unflappable"....

Kevin Love just stomped on Scola's
