I was watching some old Iggy highlights from the past two years. Most of the home highlights are him dunking in a mostly empty arena!

Quite a change from what was there in game 6 and I assume tonight.


I hope they win, and they have every chance too!

Let's also stop for a second and enjoy watching important growh and relevant basketball in the middle of May. It has been a long long time!

Not a must win, but one of those games where if the players want to be taken seriously as NBA players they need to come out strong and set a tone early. They took home court away, which is what you want to do in two games away, but losing tonight gives it right back...start off aggressive, with energy, don't settle for bad shots, play tough defense, smart basketball (DO NOT PULL EVAN TURNER IF THERE IS A SLOW START), go to mismatches, constantly, show a maturation and maturity...not just for us, or the fans, or anyone else watching who might start looking at this franchise as a free agent destination.

I don't necessarily disagree with benching Turner in certain situations because he does get carried away at times and his immaturity is evident. He needs to be calmed down every once in a while. I don't agree however with keeping him on the bench for extended periods of time (which Collins seems prone to doing) because he is one of the most productive Sixers players at this point. After Brand and Young imploded in the playoffs (at least so far), Turner is probably a top 3 player on this team. He needs to be on the floor.

Overall though Turner is averaging 34 minutes per game in the playoffs which makes him 3rd on the team and is well ahead of the fourth one so it's not like he is kept on the bench too much.

Saw this video of Sixers lockeroom post game 6 in the Bulls series:

http://www.nba.com/video/channels/playoffs/2012/05/15/philly_lockeroom_celebration.nba/

I'm pumped! Let's go get it. Play these guys like they broke into your house, beat up your momma and shot your dog.

Looks like Evan and Doug Junior x2 are pals :).

I hadn't seen that before. Imagine how great it would've been if Collins hadn't lost the team :)

Cool :) They really look like "family".

Can you tell me again Brian which Philly reporter said that?

Stockton and Webber. And I assume they'll tip it off at like 7:01 again, so I'm not getting caught by surprise tonight.

This is the D series on TNT isn't it?

Aaaaaand we're off....Hawes loses the tip.

They went to Pierce in the post on the first possession, immediate double, then a good recovery onto Garnett. The open man was Rondo for three, which is what you want. Good rotation early.

AI9 steal and slam next time down.

Brian u stupid Lmaoo that maybe bad that gives kg rest lol comment of the night

That was a good offensive possession. Ball changed sides multiple times, they probed the lane. Boston really had to make a ton of rotations and contend with a bunch of movement. Run the offense like that whenever you're in the halfcourt, don't let them jog back and stand around on the defensive end.

Defense needs to pick it up in a major way here in the second. Rondo and Pierce played the entire first quarter, and scored Boston's last 22 points.

If Pierce yells one more time they have to T him up, you can't do that shit every time down the court.

If I'm not mistaken, the Sixers took two long twos that quarter (Thad and Lavoy, hitting both). Everything else was an open three or a shot in the lane. That's exactly what you want.

Can't stand when the refs do that. Ray misses the layup after contact and the ball is caroming off the rim and back into his hands and THEN the ref blows the whistle for a foul on the previous shot. Too late.

"KG doing a good job intimidating" someone needs to explain to cwebb that our bigs never attack the rim

The Cs runs start when the team goes to its super soft front court. Then it takes another 10 minutes of game time for the rest if the team to finally slow them down. Never go soft with the Hawes and Young combination and the Cs would not heat up in the first place.

Missed most of the half for work function. Were Lavoy's fouls legit?

Shaq on kg mind of a champion that was like got Damn 4 yrs ago.

If Lou and Meeks play less than 20mins combined in the 1st half, we will probably win.

There are a lot of whys about this one.

one of the biggest is why has Brand lost his stroke? When it had seemed to have come back a bit last game? The injury? He's battling, getting rebounds though. There were a couple of chippies he missed in the second quarter that could have really changed things and kept them in it.

And then the WHY did Collins go with that shit lineup again in the second quarter when they lost the lead?

It's true, so many why-o-why's in this one...

Or his injury history and age just means he's done...which is not surprising, as for most of the last 1/4 of the season he was done too...Brand is just done

yea, he sure appears to be. If nothing else, he did finance a Werner Herzog film, which is pretty cool. Maybe he'll have some more time for his production company real soon.

And Evan ends up out there with the garbage-timers. Deserved.

Voose, looking mobile as ever.

Thanks for the laugh, it's needed. lol

Silas gets his Rudy moment. Good for him.

As much as I despise the Celtics, I would have rather sat through a Heat thrashing with the refs sucking up to LePip and Wade.

Eagerly awaiting a blog post from Kate Fagan about how bad the Sixers are.

Well, you know, working at ESPNW gives her more access than she had as a sixers beat writer.

Since everything in the playoffs is blown out of proportion on a moment by moment basis (sports is a victim of the '24 hour news cycle' just like anything else it seems) this probably hurts the dwight howard chances

:)

Yet, it's funny that this game shows just how badly we need a center who is not a giant pussy/can finish/can defend.

Yeah, if only I believed Dwight understood the overall game of basketball better to make that connection...somehow I doubt he can (and his agent really won't want him to sign in Philadelphia since the advertising dollars can be bigger in a place like Brooklyn or LA or whatever)

Course the fact that he opted in (for the most asinine of reasons it seems) makes it more difficult - but if dude really wanted a title this team was the obvious destination and ownership could have pointed out to agent that if they ditched brand they could max out dwight

I don't get why he opted in either, unless it's for some conspiracy-esque reason like he knew that he needed to get surgery soon.

Just her? If you bother to look (and I don't blame you if you don't) you'll probably hear it from everyone.

gosixers and the dc naysayers will run along any minute to tell you Collins's lost the team again

I find it fascinating that you people have to call me out for things I never even said.

And yet you can't notice that I had already responded 6 minutes before hand.

All I ever said was that I expect collins to be gone sometime next season - since he's never lasted 3 seasons anywhere - one is my opinion - the other is fact

The sixers aren't a championship contending team - that's also fact - they choked when they had a chance to prove it tonight - I'm sure there's enough blame for everyone to pick the player they hate...it was evan's fault, andre's fault, jrue's fault, thads fault lou's fault eltons fault

They had a chance to show everyone who was talking about how the celtics weren't interested until after they lost wrong, guess what, all they really did was reinforce the believe that this isn't a team that can contend for a title

Unlike most people - I don't make decisions or opinions based on a game or two or 12...my opinion of this team has been the same - consistently - for a couple months now - and nothing the playoffs has changed that one iota

But please - continue to make me laugh by calling me out by name - it's the most hysterical thing

"I find it fascinating that you people have to call me out for things I never even said."

That's most hysterical, no?

I'm just asking here .... but are you always this much of a hypocrite?

hahahahahahahhaa good one

Hmm.

You either saved that up for future reference or took the time to look it up - both are rather pathetic commentaries on how much you feel that a blog is important...which is a commentary on how sad and pathetic you truly are. It's funny.

And yes, look how I admit I'm wrong, I guess I did said it. Unlike your life, I have a lot of things to do and a lot of interests and thus I can't remember everything I said on something that is purely diversion for me (but very important to your life)...you've still hardley (if ever) admit you were wrong, even when presented with a mountain of evidence.

The fact that you need to keep calling me out just demonstrates your patheticness...

You often refer to this 'wrong' thingie, or 'not admitting wrong', what exactly have I been so 'wrong' about? You toss it around so frequently, you surely must have a list of something? Please share.

Please, amnesty Elton Brand. Even if we are not signing anybody, just so I don't have to watch him labor through next year and remember this postseason.

Terrible defense, but next game will say a lot. Must win coming up

Sixers will put forth a better effort next game (can't get much worse right?). I am trying to keep this team in perspective and not get too hung up on horrible losses like this.

On a different note...watching Jordan Hill play for LAL, he may look good at the 5 in a sixers uniform next year. Probably get him without a crazy contract (i.e. what it would take for a shot at either McGee or Hibbert) and I think he may be a nice piece. Not the answer to our problems at center, but a nice piece.
