Sixers

, all the time

I really hope your prediction comes true, although I don't care who is POTG. I just want a win.

not sure if this belongs in a game thread but here are the 6th man voting results

http://www.nba.com/2012/news/05/10/sixth-man-release/index.html

Sixers are a 3.5-point favorite tonight across multiple oddsmakers, up from 3 points this morning. There is a chance that the Sixers' athleticism and personnel advantage could overwhelm the Bulls and lead to a comfortable win, but I fear nerves will come into play if it's a close game, in which case I have no idea what will happen. I'm hoping Iguodala responds to Deng's Game 5 explosion the same way he did when Granger exploded in April (Granger's next game vs. the Sixers: 2-12 for 4 points).

This place looks....empty, going to be another second half crowd...

Noah and Taj Gibson are both in the Bulls layup line, according to Cooney.

Noah not starting, but is available to play. Henry Abbott says he looks like he's in a lot of pain.

@TrueHoop
Bulls say Joakim Noah is not starting, but he is available to play. Looks like he's in plenty of pain warming up.

"Oh noes, in an unexpected line up change Tony Battie started for the Sixers and accidentally stepped on Noah's big toe on the first possession of the ball game."

Wow, Chris Andersen involved in some kind of investigation, internet crimes against children.

"row to hoe"

feexed.

What are "internet crimes against children"?

no idea how broad it is, but doesn't sound good.

It's a nice way to say 'kiddie porn' would be my guess

Noah's movement looks painful as hell. Don't see him playing...

He'll play if they need him to play...if Hawes is somehow destroying them or the sixers are dominating the glass, or the bulls falling too far behind.

It's a must win game for the bulls, so i expect noah's playing time will depend on the bulls status of winning versus losing

If he plays, you put him in pick-and-rolls on the perimeter on every play. Whoever he's guarding comes out to set the pick for Jrue. I'd do the same w/ Gibson early, see how his ankle responds.

Well what the sixers do is up to them - just saying - that noah's only going to play if Thibodeau thinks they're going home without him

I can't believe our leading scorer averaged less than 15. Is that a record in the shot-clock era?

Same starting lineups as last game.

Aaaaand we're off...Hawes WINS the tip.

Terrible fucking play to open it. Iguodala's jumper blocked.

Sissy jumper missed on the second play. Not a good start.

Three plays, three jumpers.

There you go, Turner board.

Fuck me. missed the Jrue43.

meant Turner board and he pushed the ball up w/ an outlet pass. Wound up in a Jrue three.

Up 8 w/ 4 and a half left.

If they can hold somewhere close to that lead going into half, that could be huge. If the Bulls cut it down before half, just a little more interesting.

Even before this run this game had a flow that seems to favor the Sixers. Much more open game and officials are calling some of the pushes.

Okay, close out strong now. Double digits for the half? Better not, don't feel secure.

On that second Jrue three, he was so much quicker on the release.

3 on watson, please guard lucas

Well they have every opportunity to close this series out. I think this 3rd quarter will say alot about this team. I think The Bulls will come out with increased defensive intensity- if the Sixers can push the lead I thing the Bulls would not have another counter ion them. But if the game turns ugly the Sixers will be in trouble.

Sixers lucky they took that off- in that it was close and the conceded a wide open look that could have resulted in points on the board.

Makes up for the Asik 22-footer, I guess.

Hah, forgot about that one.

Glad Lou has stepped up. ET has been aggressive too. Reminds me a bit of their game 5 loss to the Heat in that they are at least fighting... and with the level of competition they can win.

I'm really interested to see how they deal with the defense that is coming.

Yeah, exactly for that reason. If players are tired, they rotate slower and close out slower on three point shooters, like that Lou jumper.

Deng has 15 effin rebounds. Ugh.

Turner, you have to get the ball to Thad w/ Rip on him there.

Great spacing by Lou on that 3.

Our front court has been abysmal. Thad is serving no purpose out there. He's so overwhelmed on the boards with Asik.

Aside from Thad the front court has been mostly abysmal for most of the year. not sure why the playoffs should be different, espeically against a team with front court depth like the bulls.

Are you forgetting about Brand or do you have some metric that shows Thad has been much better than him?

3 o-boards...

EB pushes off to stop the 4th o-board chance. Bulls sideout.

Yes Elton - you were fouling him for position before the shot even went up

Elton Brand is just not in the shape any more to last in this kind of season - someone mentioned the bulls look 'gassed' - brand has looked gassed for weeks

this effort is a disgrace.

Wow, ...

Fucking Thad. Man I'm so pissed off.

You're not pissed at Elton for being unable to box out asik without massively fouling him?

I mean I don't get why you're pissed off at all, but the sixers are failing as a team, all of them

Watson didn't even pass that ball I don't think, he looked to have lost it and it ended up in Taj's hands.

Jrue tipped it away from him. Just a lucky bounce.

We/they don't deserve a win... and I don't see any chance in going back to Chicago and winning game 7.

There is no deserve or not deserve a win

They're still in the game, they might win they might lose - but it's not 'deserve' - that's just nonsense

Deserve has nothing to do with sports, or America

EB should just put A-M-N-E-S-T-Y on the back of his jersey.

And Spencer Hawes should just put suck on the back of his jersey

I am a Collins supporter, but this collapse IMO is at least 80% on Collins.

I would much rather see Lavoy instead of Thad at this point. 25 rebound margin. Lucky it's this close.

Andre - keep taking rip - he's your bitch

Jrue

When asik LEAVES HIS FEET _ TAKE THE SHOT AND DRAW THE FOUL

8 seconds!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

That was 8 seconds. He crossed mid-court w/ 15 on the clock.

I hope this is the last game Lou Williams plays for the sixers in Philadlephia

Seriously. What a garbage effort on both ends.

You're probably right - they don't want to win

Good ball movement there. This game is probably for the series.

I cant believe Hawes made that shot. I though for sure he was going to throw it off the bottom of the backboard.

I was a little aggravated he didn't take it sooner, like he was almost waiting for the two guys to come cover him so he'd have an excuse for a miss :)

If you get the stop, don't use the timeout, push the ball up the floor and try to get something in transition.

I hate this shit

That was 5 seconds on the inbounds. God damnit. God fucking damnit.

Hey Coach Collins- why was Hawes on the floor for that play?

This is the last timeout for the Sixers. Keep that in mind.

Thad is killing then on both ends. Unreal.

lou 3 is coming hope its goes in

Lou Jack City time...

Wow Spencer, that was well done...now doug draw up a play that has lou rushing a horrible 3. You can do it

I curse when it's appropriate - sometimes it's appropriate

Actually i said I try not to curse, I didn't say I didn't...sometimes you have to lower yourself to the level of the simpletons

And you have to do whatever it is you do to get your rocks off.
