Sixers

, all the time

headed down to the game tonight, hopefully only jrue and dre are the ones to guard rose, dont want lou anywhere near him

Anyone know if ESPN is bringing the d -team again for this one? And /or @wheresviolet?

Nah this is a better game. I expect some of ESPNs best tonight.

They had 2 ABC games today, right? It's at the very best their C team.

Fun schedule fact:

The Sixers have played by far the most inter-conference game in the league so far - 16. They only have two more games vs western teams remaining vs Utah on Friday and @ San Antonio later in March. This is very good considering they have really struggled against the deep western conference (only 6-10 so far),

That's off from last season, they were .500 against the West, I believe.

I'm not feeling it tonight. But then again I hav not had a good read on this team all year.

Rough game on both ends for Lin today. 6/16, 14 points, 6 turnovers. Rondo with one of the sickest triple doubles I've seen, 18 points, 17 boards, 20 assists.

it's interesting that given his history and the Knicks Defense, the 17 boards is by far the most surprising stat.
Yep they should definitely trade him.

Nice. I never saw the number, was it a sellout on Friday night? Be nice to have back-to-backs.

Doris Burke is much better than Mullin.

Yeah, she's better than Mullin, but people go nuts for her for some reason. I think she's kind of too much rah-rah for my taste.

Anyway, Lou better be able to handle the doubles tonight, because Chicago is going to pressure the hell out of him.

Btw, funny to see Wade foul out.

They said that was the second time in 7 seasons that wade fouled out? And there was still quite a bit of the fourth late.

Burke is better than Mullin, but having Mullin do a warriors game is just atrocious by ESPN in general,

I didn't think that last one was a foul on him. JVG didn't either but he tried to evade admitting it.

JVG is usually pretty open about questioning the officials, he questioned a few foul calls on Battier...or affirmed that lack of call.

Guess that one makes up for 5,000 times he's gone to the line when he wasn't fouled.

This nba studio quartet is irritating

Rondo is a merging superstar.

Who is he merging with Mr Johnson?

I really can't take Magic. He's such a fucking idiot.

Most former players are pretty bad in the commentary department, but that's true across most sports, it's the lack of English literacy in any commentator I find embarrassing.

NFL and MLB don't often give players front office positions though :)

I know brian doesn't buy the excuse, but you got a healthy rose AND deng in this game. Healthy to Healthy - the bulls out match the sixers - and the sixers front court is bad when it's healthy - and hawes injry is lasting forever and brand, well he's old

Damn Rose is hot. He said in that article yesterday he would be zoned in.

i do remember he was ill, though, right?

After the fact, they said something like that. Then he torched the Knicks the following night.

I think it was debated that night. Most said they sat him to save him for a game the next nt at Orlando.

The bulls reported 'flu like symptoms' that night

Subs here, you think?

Unless Boozer comes out - Lavoy shouldn't come out

No subs

Lavoy Allen is doing a nice job putting his body on Carlos Boozer on the defensive end. Enjoying watching his effort.

right when we lauded Lavoy's defense, he blows an assignment. In comes Vuc.

He was up the moment Allen threw it out of bounds - that foul was the next stop :)

You know - if Doris Burke knows you gotta stop rose going right, maybe someone on the sixers should suggest that?

Wowo, Allen has been baaad.

Course, as soon as I say something nice about Lavoy he makes that awful turnover, gives boozer the and 1 - #8 was up as soon as the pass went out of bounds

Take away the right, Jrue. You don't have any help.

Voose w/ the left. They need to give him the ball in the post a couple of times/game, at least. Use him before he gets in foul trouble. Like that. Bailout call for Rose.

Had it the first time Thad. ugh should have went under the basket with the scoop.

Turners shoes, um, they're very powdery

PHI 24, CHI 26 after 1.

Not sure who a high-scoring game favors when these teams are playing. Either way, Sixers need to lock down on the defensive end.

Turner looking better on Rose now that he's sitting on that right hand. Hope he can keep holding fort till Jrue comes with his master lock.

1 turnover for each team? Wow.

If i'm not mistaken, that behind the back by Iguodala was the only layup we've taken, everything else was a jumper. Not going to win that way against this team.

Didn't Iguodala find either lavoy or brand (forget who) for a lay up in the first quarter?

Nah, Allen got a layup of Iguodala penetration, Voose had that move in the paint, and EB hit 2 or 3 like 10-footers, which are as good as layups.

"off" Iguodala penetration.

Good qtr. Bulls took a lot of ill advised shots (ad even hit some.) If they lose because Rose drains a ton of 3's then you live with that. The guy has shot 31% or better only 1 season of his career. A 3 for him is a terrible shot.

For those not able to watch the game on the local Comcast channel, they've added a "Passionate, Intense, Proud" commercial around Iguodala highlights discussing his all star selection. Nice to see.

Let's take care of business now.

Wow, Jrue's jumper is on. Get a couple threes up there, big guy.

Possible SECOND round match-up. Hate the national press. I forgot that Bston and NYK were both 20 games over .500 and fighting for the Atlantic.

So - Evan Turner can handle the double - but Lou and Jrue get confused?

Brand has 6 o-boards already.

I mean, Thad iso'd on Rose and he takes a pull up 22-footer. You aren't going to get a better result than that. He just hit it.

Well, I didn't like Thad's defense - gave him too much space and fell for the 'fake' too easy. Rose had a pretty open look...that's all. Iguodala probably doesn't give him as open a look that's all.

they're not even beating them up. it's a 1 point game in the 4th quarter.

If Jrue can get to the line like Deron Williams does I'd be very very happy.

Sixers players seem expert at avoiding contact, which in general i guess is a good skill, but some FT's would be nice, gotta learn how to finish after you get hit (Andre is bad at it)

ohh fyi; if the Bulls lose tonight, it will be bacuse CJ Watson got injured and Rip Hamilton is not "at 100%" yet (imo he's in Elton Brand territory physically).

because

The team cancer has 14/8 2 blocks against the great and powerful clips...

you can cool the Sammy nostalgia now; it's a closed book anyway. haters will be haters.

Hey - he's a free agent and the sixers still need a big man :)

Only if HOU doesn't pick up his option.

With the great Darryl Morey that's a 50:50 proposition in my mind. The whole 'whiz kid' thing has got to be removed from his 'resume'

They need "good Lou" to step up since the Bulls defense has asserted itself. Jrue does not look like he will pu up 2 big scoring halves in a row.

OK, collect yourselves and finish this quarter strong. You can break their back with like 6-0 spurt right here. They battled all the way back only to have the lead right back where it was.

Go get him beatle boy

Did they ever show a replay of that behind the back reverse layup past 3 guys by Iguodala? (I passed on the halftime buffoonery.) Every Rose layup gets 5 replays.

Shit. Point fucking blank.

Fucking garbage shot by Rose, again. Again nothing you can do about it. That time Thad was right on him.

PHI 64, CHI 64 after three.

All these offensive rebounds we're getting, along with the 10 turnovers by the Bulls to our 2, doubling them up on free throw attempts, and we're tied because we can't shoot long J's all damn game. UGH

Doug - you're also not getting any points off all your offensive rebounds

No rest for Rose. Wonder if he goes the rest of the way.

Fuck you Lou for taking a crappy shot. Fuck you Turner for not closing out.

damn Turner; THAT WEAK STUFF DONT WORK

Hey Doug - that's enough rest for #9

No idea where the offense is going to come from. No idea at all.

#8 and #9 pick and roll - that's your best option

This team needs a starting quality SG. Because right now they lack one on their roster. And I think if you believe otherwise you watch to much college basketball. Maybe in 1-2 years... but right now they are weak at SG.

They also need a starting quality center and a starting quality power forward after this season as well

Brand? No idea. Jrue started hot, but he was like 6/9 or something, 6/15 now. Where do you go?

user-pic
eddies' heady's on Mar 4 at 21:01

Lou/Thad side pick and roll.

Brand sat the final 5:29 of the third. Put him in and run a play to get him a nice 14-foot look. See if that works.

All the talking from doug tonight keeps reinforcing 'we suck at the half court offense'

Get Turner out of the game. How do you fucking lose him like that?

Cause Lou or Meeks are better defenders?

Sixers have been going into late game meltdown mode quite often lately. It's a shame; they play so hard in the first halves of games, and usually the third, but if it's close late, they just can't seem to hang. It's happened quite often this year.

Because they lack rather important pieces to be able to hang
They can't make (or even draw some times) free throws
They don't have a guy who just keeps getting to line
They don't have consistently good defensive rebounding

They're still an incomplete roster. They have been for a few years now

That's game. I doubt they score another 11. Make that 13.

Ugh Brand with the turnover there after doing a great job battling for the rebound.

Ummm ok

So you say something blatantly false, then when you're called on it you try to make a completely different point. Just say "I'm wrong."

Wow - man you people are so damn pissy some times

Shall we call you out for being wrong every time your game prediction are wrong - i mean you don't say 'i was wrong'

Deng is a better player than the three players I mentioned, I'd rather have himon the sixers roster

PS - the bulls are better than the sixers, no matter what you want to say otherwise...no matter how hard you try to convince yourself other wise.

And now we change the subject for a second time.

Our offense is an embarrassment

1. Jrue disappeared.

2. What ET does right now is not good enough for the NBA. College PG's are not NBA wings. Hope he coes back next year with an NBA game.

everything catches up to us, their outside shooting, the calls, even the turnovers.

why is Iguodala on rose still. hate it.

For all of the people who have given Iguodala a pass for not wanting/thinking to score I hope you finally see what his biggest flaw is. Where has he been in the fourth quarter of these tight games offencively?

Perfect trolling moment, you couldn't resist could you.

You're right, this is all Andre's fault

Call it what you want. You can't deny he has been a non factor on offence in these games when they can't close teams out.

A Jrue assist!

Great board and great find, Jrue.

The sixers choked in the second half against an upper echelon team - again - that won't cut it

They're staring w/ Jrue on Deng now. That's a tough matchup for him. Don't like this.
