Sixers

, all the time

Think the Sixers get their first 30 point scorer tonight. Not sure who just think tonight is the night.

Double digit win? You seem a little optimistic. I'm predicting a loss.

Sixers vs clippers - of course this is a matchup of two first place teams, why wouldn't it be??

110? must have faith they will stop firing away the readily given 20footers

I have faith LAC's defense is as bad as advertised.

The Sixers half-court offense simply isn't as good without Spencer Hawes, so I doubt they score above 100.

They scored 98 on the Bulls w/out Hawes. I'm sticking w/ my prediction of 110 tonight.

The Bulls game they really played some of their best offensive basketball all season. People say they miss Hawes because of his presence in the paint being able to defend other bigs and get rebounds. But his biggest contributions come on the offensive end. He is arguably the main facilitator of our half-court offense, being used as a passer on the top of the key.

Who says they miss Hawes because of his presence in the paint and rebounding? They've been a much worse rebounding team with him on the floor so far this season (against much worse competition).

Ok, so then do you agree with the notion that they won't be able to score 100 points without Hawes?

They scored 98 w/out him against a good defense. Why wouldn't they be able to score 110 w/out him against a sthi defense?

The cool thing about playing Poppovich and Del Negro in consecutive games is that you can see what a really well coached team looks like and what a poorly coached team looks like (despite the latter team having more talent).

Finally got around to reading the Meeks vs ET thread...glad I had that time to waste

Alright, home just in time. No late breaking news I can find. Voose, Brand, Iguodala, Meeks, Holiday with Hawes still out.

hopefully the refs dont fall for the flops

Anybody know @wheresviolet tonight?

not in philly

Toronto/Boston for Violet.

Crawford's doing Portland's game.

Tony Brothers and crew for the Sixers.

something to keep an eye on, both games were chippy last year

Griffin and Jordan can't set a hard screen for their lives. It was much more difficult for Holiday to get around Duncan's screens. Yet goes another reason why Shaq calls him the Big Fundamental.

user-pic
Dwight reply to Court_visioN on Feb 10 at 19:36

Lou is better at staying with the smaller, quicker guards than Holiday

No. He is not.

He took Jrue out and they put Paul in during Thad's freebies. Two free points for LAC (though I'm not sure Jrue can stop him that situation either, but he's got a better shot).

user-pic
Dwight reply to Brian on Feb 10 at 19:38
+/-

Lou isn't that bad of a one-on-one defender. He's just worse than Holiday at fighting his way through screens and Holiday is smarter about rotations and defensive communication.

Lou is a very bad one-on-one defender. He just never has to guard anyone of any consequence so you don't see it much.

PHI 27, LAC 18 after one.

Solid quarter, three more like that.

And please, let that be the last time we see Lou Williams on Chris Paul.

The cool thing about playing Poppovich and Del Negro in consecutive games is that you can see what a really well coached team looks like and what a poorly coached team looks like (despite the latter team having more talent).

Not really, he made himself get hung up on the screen. Drifting in the path of the opponent. He was already deep enough before cheating further.

Shit, Thad covering Blake. Leads to a three for Mo Williams when Turner has to help. Gotta get Brand on him.

Clippers suck. Freaking jump shooting team. Even Blake Griffin has turned into a jump shooter. Team can't play a lick of defense.

this guy is tripping over himself, sounds nervous

Dunno. Hasn't taken a single shot in 12:25 of action, though.

They can get really good looks all night if they run offense and multiple pick and rolls every possession.

Court_visioN reply to eddies' heady's on Feb 10 at 20:09

yeah outside of a couple trips where CP3 got loose in the paint, I thought the Sixers didn't do a bad job. Mo Williams got hot for a stretch.

Offensive execution has to be better though.

The pace/score favors the Sixers. They just need to keep attacking and make their freebies.

How often have we seen a hot EB in the first quarter and then the Sixers totally ignoring him in the second? Was 3/4 in the first, took no shot in the second.

He wasn't in very long in the second. Picked up his second foul and went to the bench.

I agree w/ what you're saying. Think the problem is that he usually sits the first half of the second quarter and then they don't make a conscious effort to go back to him when he gets back in.

Celts losing to the raps early.

I look forward to our 67-point second half explosion, Brian.

Bismack had 4 and 4 in 18 minutes in the 1st half. Only one defensive rebound from their starting center. 1 block, 1 turnover, 1 foul.

Alright. Let's come out w/ some energy and determination in the third. Run your offense, create those easy looks and keep the defense up the entire second half.

Good foul by AI9. Sends Jordan to the line.

Don't like the idea of CP3 coming back into a close game rested. He's buried teams w/ late scoring this season. Maybe he's hurt?

off a perfectly executed screen by Reggie Evans. And used just as perfectly by Paul

That's the matchup you need to attack, Mo Williams on Jrue.

Wasn't that a kick? They didn't put time back on the shot clock.

We're extremely fortunate that the refs did their homework on the Clips tonight. They're not calling any of their flops.

Three PF Lineup?

Wonder if they can get out of this. Paul makes a great shot on that possession, and there's nothing you could do about it.

There was a lot more that they could have done earlier to make sure this wasn't a game. Now they are at Paul's mercy.

Absolutely hate the call, away from the hoop on the pass w/ only 3 left. That's just silly. Why AWAY from the basket w/ that l'il time left? why?

This game would end like that, Jrue has Blake fucking Griffin on him, fuck the play that was called attack that

Im pissed

Why the hell do you draw up a play for Lou? It's so obvious? Why not run Meeks of a screen?

Dre has to get out of the way there. But Lou also can't put himself that close to the sideline. Fuck.

really, really?
talk to the guy who dribbled into the double team.

Agree, AI9 has to clear himself there. Lou didn't have that much of a choice though. Good d cutting him off.

How can you blow a lead to a three PF lineup?

Doug should be ashamed with that playcall. If you want Lou to shoot, make him the inbounder.

I'm so pissed off right now. That was a despicable effort, AWFUL. Horrible. Sucked.

Real play-calling mastermind we've got. Wow.

brian, i will not be reading your recap tomorrow. I will not acknowledge that this game ever existed, hated just about every second of it... fuck it

I knew that was gonna happen. A little disappointed we didn't manage to throw a shot up.

Wtf was that sixers deserve to lose this game learn how to shoot free throws lock them in the gym and make them shoot free throws

That ending reminded me of the Sixers we all know and love. They simply lack the leadership and experience needed to beat these good teams late in the 4th quarter.

Seriously just watched the play again, talk about fucking pathetic. Basketball teams at schools for the blind run better plays. Absolutely awful

Im going to get drunk, have a good night everyone

Really disgusted.

This team has to be more mentally tough on offense. They aren't good enough to have no movement and just coast on offense. That's what they did for the majority of the game, especially that stretch in the late 3rd/4th.

I have to believe that Iguodala was largely at fault for that play at the end. He simply stood there, right next to Lou, which allowed for the double team, and he wasn't able to get open for a pass. Sometimes he just makes the stupidest plays.

Rich reply to Dwight on Feb 10 at 21:50

No, but I don't think he makes more than the average player.

What I really disagree with is you laying the blame on a guy inbounding the ball when the designed play was the post up of the smallest guy on the team 35 feet from the hoop and two feet away from the sideline. And that's what happened.

user-pic
Dwight reply to Rich on Feb 10 at 21:52
+/-

How do you know that was the designed play? If you're Iggy in that situation and you see that double team, shouldn't you at least try to get open instead of just standing there?

Pretty clear the designed play was "pass the ball in to Lou. Everyone stand around and watch him." Iguodala should've stood further away from him, probably, but he was just standing there wide open, had Lou passed it to him, he would've had an open look that he would've missed.

Fine, blame that play on him, blame the 5 second call on him, blame Jrue or missing the freebie. Blame the other guys that missed freebies. Blame Brand for giving up how many offensive boards to Reggie Evans in the fourth quarter? Blame whatever. There's plenty of it to go around.

user-pic
Dwight reply to Brian on Feb 10 at 21:58
+/-

I agree. Don't mark me as an Iggy hater just because I blame him for one play. I obviously don't blame the entire game on him. In fact, his defense and rebounding kept us in the game for the most part. The game was really a lack of execution on offense and lazy play on defense.

This is really the first game where you can say the Sixers were outhustled.

user-pic
Rich reply to Dwight on Feb 10 at 22:00

Better thing to blame him (or Collins) for was that quick shot out of the timeout.

Yep. That one too.

Brian don't waste ur Time with the recap ... I blame lebron

8 missed FTs.
Reggie Evans - 5 Off. rebs and 1 stl.
Dre napping on the inbounds = turnover
Lou miscommunication with Jrue = turnover
Just off the 4th quarter alone, you could write a book.

Hoping we will see the real Sixers soon.

Atlanta beats Orlando, ties us in the standings. Miami picks up a game on us, beating Washington. Chicago has a 4 game lead now after beating the Bobcats 95-64, and Indiana's in a close road game with Memphis.

boston lost to toronto, knicks beating the lakers

very bad game for the nerves. gotta sleep this one off.

Tough loss. But then again, it's one of those losses that benefit the team in the long run. We clearly were outhustled and made a lot of dumb plays over the course of the game. It's one of those teaching point games.
