Damn damn damn I may have an extra ticket to this one, email me das411 @ gmail if interested ...

HUGE game for Iguodala in terms of his chances for unseating Howard as DPOY.

I actually think Iguodala was slightly better last year when it came to locking up his man and throwing away the key(remember the list?). But since the teams defense is better he is finally getting the national recognition he deserves.

The Thunder are(besides the Heat) the hottest team in the league right now and Durant is coming off a few huge games and the All-Star game MVP. If he shuts him down tonight and we snap their winning streak it will really stick in the minds of those who vote for the award.

I can't wait. Do your thing Iggy.

92-84? pretty optimistic huh? wish you'd pass some over here. hehe Wonder if Collins is better tonight?

I know people keep saying that Doug Collins had the flu last night, but something rings false to me. It seemed like 4 or 5 people were headed back to the locker room with Doug Collins. If it was just the flu why did he need the entourage?


I think it was just the trainer. Could be he just said I'm going to throw up so the trainer went with him to make sure he was OK. Guess we'll see if he's out there tonight.

I watched his presser, and it didn't look or sound like the flu to me.

@preston76 Coach Collins said he got a little dehydrated yesterday & today he "feels great," stayed at home this a.m. to rest. Will be on bench tonight

@Brain: I created a mobile view for the game thread comments. Not sure if it's okay with you if I share the link. It's read-only and I'd share the source as well (if you wish so).

Sure, share the link.

I'd be surprised if the Sixers lose this game.

I really like how they match up to the Thunder. They rely HEAVILY on Durant and Westbrook and our best two defenders are Holiday and Iggy. Also Turner is probably our 3rd best defender who can match up with Harden. Also, we actually have more veterans than they do.

I wasn't surprised because the Heat have something that the Thunder could only dream of having: a great big man. Bosh is Elton Brand's nightmare. An athletic big who can hustle, run the floor, and extend the floor. The closest the Thunder have to that is Serge Ibaka, who can shoot and rebound, but isn't nearly as good offensively as Bosh.

Sixers feed in HD on LP tonight. Good thing, too, because every other LP channel is blurry on Time Warner. Have I mentioned how much I love that company?

Can't give up more than 6 or 7 o-boards. Believe Collison killed us in one of the games last year. If it's anything like Maxiell/Monroe last night, it's going to be a long night.

It's befuddling to me that on this level and as much instruction as these guys have had, they just casually, almost non-existent, put a body into someone by way of a crouched position. Maddening.

When I was taught to rebound, the theory was that if everyone did their job on the defensive glass, the ball should hit the floor, then someone picks it up. Seems to me like guys think they can just out-jump people for boards and the fundamental of putting your ass into someone and rooting them out has been completely forgotten. That's really why I like watching Kevin Love play so much.

I hope Irving destroys the Knicks tonight.

When one player is trying to make a grabbing motion and another player has one hand stuck in there the refs are generally going to favor the guy trying to grab it if it's close. It was close, I think.

Holy shit they have Ivey again? Such a mysterious NBA player.

There are three kinds of players in the league: Ultra-talented guys with good minds

Ultra talented guys with bad minds

Average talented old guys who don't screw up when they come into the game and managed to not get cut their first few years

The Sixers needed to argue that call. That could have been one of those plays where the referees are persuaded to go back and look at the replay.

Can only look at the replay in last two minutes of the half/game, I believe. Not 1st Q.

Lou catch and shoot.

Need to do a better job on the defensive glass obviously.

Pretty apparent that Doug didn't want Jrue to pick up a second and poor Jodie had to deal with Westbrook. That's not really all that fair.

They need to stop guarding Harden at half court

Harden is such a smart player. He knows how to draw fouls like a veteran.

Voose w/ the foul. Harden is really good at drawing fouls.

Turner almost hit that.

Dre's gotta get KD off the three point line next half. Make him shoot 20 footers. That last one was a little too easy.

This 8-0 run predicts what will happen again in the playoffs this year if the Sixers play a tea with legit stars. The Sixers team effort approach will keep them in games, but when the other team focuses their superior players will win out. Very much like the Heat series last year,

OKC is a superior team across the board, but beyond that stars beat non-stars when both teams ae focused. That explains 100% why the Sixers are brutally bad in OT and close games the last 2 years. A lack of high end talent.

And that is why I'm against any more incremental moves. Bring in a star or go with what you have. But no additional "good" players. Brand and Iguodala will come off the books. Do not rpelace thm wit similar players. Much better to have 1 superstar then 2 second level ones.

tk: not the best time to make that point. let's finish the game first.

OK, come out and show some fucking balls. That double tech ignited Durant, fuel off that shit.

hope we can get the refs to hold their whistles in the 2nd half. better chance to win. Durant uncharacteristically cold (by his standards anyway), that will not continue.

At least Cleveland has a 9 point lead against the Knicks. I hope it's sustainable.

What the fuck Voose? That's a killer. Wouldn't mind Lou knowing where Ivey was too.

The Sixers will never be an elite home team with this pathetic crowd. Lou gets a key and-1 and there's barely a golf clap.

Didn't the SIxers make a similar TO in the 3rd in their close loss to Minny, or was that another game?

Oh shut up already with such silliness - you're full of it - the fans just rose up after Iguodalas beautiful assist...have you not seen a game the past few years? The support they have now is light years ahead of last year.

They won't be an elite team anywhere without more elite talent.

EB can't buy one.

Dre should post Harden up.

Asking a ton of Brand here. HEAVY minutes in the second half.

If he can't hang in a game like this, just more grist for the amnesty mill. he had almost a week of rest. If he can't play heavy minutes in a back to back he's done

Bad shot Lou. Really bad shot Lou.

Because before that shot he was 7 for 22

They don't think he can shoot threes cause he can't.

Andre Iguodala, Deserving All-Star, everybody

Iggy has come up huge in some tight spots this game. And not taking too many long J's.

Don't celebrate. Don't relax. 6 more minutes of hell. DON'T LET UP!

And don't switch the westbrook/durant screens 30 feet from the hoop. Go under, westbrook isn't going to shoot that.

Exactly, go WAY under.

I don't think I've seen Iggy play as smart on the offensive end as he has tonight. He knows when to attack and when to slow down. And his ability to drive and find the open man this game has been Chris Paul-esque.

Then you've never watched Andre Iguodala play basketball

Dwight reply to GoSixers on Feb 29 at 21:06

You think Iggy can pass as well as Chris Paul on a nightly basis?

I think Andre Iguodala is one of the better passers in the league, especially for a forward, and that people like you hardly ever notice cause you're too busy hating on him cause he doesn't score 20 points.

I think Andre Iguodala is much better than he's ever given credit for by most sixers 'fans' because they think he should score more points and ignore his great ALL AROUND game - which pssing is part of.

It is not on Doug. The SIxers for the past 4 years are a lottery team in close games (probably lose 70%.) It is a combination of no go to stars and youth. And it will happen again in the playoffs. 5 close games, 4 losses.

They sucked tonight at the end because they let Lou Williams be the initiator of the offense, which took everyone else out of the flow. They missed wide open shots too, but that shit just isn't sustainable. You can't tell Lou to go make a play at the end. He gets into hero mode.

Well, that about sums up the whole damn night! Westbrook skying in for a rebound. No box out whatsoever by Dre. 7th damn o-board for him tonight. Pififul. Just so maddeningly frustrating.

Wow

PHI 88, OKC 92 Final.

Not a whole lot to say about that ending. It ultimately takes away from the game they played, but they were great tonight. Not good, great. Ugh. Tough to take.

You CAN NOT rebound that poorly and be great.

The Thunder were willing to give the game away, the sixers wouldn't take it. over 4 minutes in the fourth quarter with no field goals.

They were not great tonight. This was an eminently winnable game - they should have won if they rebounded like an average NBA team. You can't be great when Russell Westbrook beats you on the offensive glass, sorry.

If I am at that game, I am booing. Hard.

great game until the last 5 minutes. those last 5 minutes were absolutely terrible. lou really fucked this one up good, but it was a team effort that really got us this loss. motherfuckers cant make shots, cant get a fucking rebound, and turn the ball over like crazy. such a disappointing end to a really well played game.

If they could rebound it wouldn't have been close in the fourth.

Yes Lou sucks, but the team, as a whole, rebounded poorly or lou doesn't matter in the fourth

yes agreed i wonder how much longer it will take for the team to get a big guy who can rebound...cause were not winning anything until that happens

Well they had one - and traded him away for Spencer Hawes

Guys like that don't grow on trees, maybe they'll luck out because the thunder can not afford to pay harden, ibaka, westbrook, and durant the money they're worth. They'll have to give one of them up.

I couldn't remember, but if that was the count then we were outdone 15-4. ugh

I wonder how bad the rebounding was in that run :)

I mean the thunder got most of those points on the line right?

We deserved that loss, 1 fg in the last 5 minutes. Coincidentally that's when we go into "Lou dribbling 16 seconds than shooting a fadeaway 16 footer offense." So fucking frustrating. Iguodala was controlling that game on both ends and he didn't have the ball in his hands at all those last 5 minutes. Even if he isn't taking the big time shots he is still the best creator we have. I'm so sick of Lou being the vocal point of the offense in crunch time.
