Game 6 Game Thread: PHI @TOR

Ah - you bought the fancy ipad with the wireless didn't ya :)

Lowry isn't playing tonight - advantage sixers

something to keep your eye on, wright, jrue, thad and evan all played 35+ minutes last night

So for those who watched last night, did Jrue look better than Rondo? Collins is kind of letting him play the Rondo role now (minus the Hall of Famers around him) jrue needs to cut down on the turnovers quickly, though.

He looked way better than Rondo, to me. But mostly because he's more versatile and more of a threat at things Rondo isn't. Rondo was dishing last night, but it was almost quiet I thought, after it was over. Jrue was magnificent last night on both ends of the floor.

Yes, his turnovers were of the maddening variety (though some weren't of his doing), but he's growing every single mintue of every single game.

I'd like to extend a bit of credit for that to coaching too.

7 more turns last night. You must love that. Rondo had a pretty good game on the O-side but couldn't guard him for the most part - or at all really. You pointed out once that RR is not a very good man-to-man defender, and you're right. Jrue was a genius with dribble against the Celtics -he never seems to over dribble. Still looked to pass though.

Really want to see the same selfless type execution that occurred last night to repeat itself. That was a sight to see for many reasons.

No telling what to expect though, tuning in to find out can be quite unpredictable with this bunch so far. Here's to hoping...

So it seems like Phil Jackson should now be known as Billy Martin the second?

Is he going back to LA? Guy really loves a challenge, huh?

Lots of reports leaking out that it's his job to give up and that he's already contacting potential assistants to come back with him...

The Lakers weren't going to NOT hire a big name - for a variety of reasons.

Though you can't learn the triangle fast - and steve nash is kind of useless in the triangle isn't he?\

Can dwight pass?

Wonder if he'd scrap the triangle with this group. Nash would essentially stand in the corner and hit threes.

I think to be good this season he'll have to - takes a long time to learn and howard and nash aren't going to learn it

Damn A&M learn to play defense

Oh - see - there you go

Hats off to the subs setting the tone defensively and offensively to start that 2nd quarter there. Picked up by the starters that trickled back in.

Spencer Hawes was the catalyst at both ends. Reminiscient of the first game of the year vs Denver.

Well - that's probably going to be the lowest scoring quarter of the year for any NBA team - good defense or the raptors are truly that awful?

Defense was awesome. Mostly by the bench guys.

Yeah, I could tell from the +/- on the box score who was building that lead ;)

Just spent 600 bucks on my dog - no way i can justify the league pass yet - hoping by January for at least the second portion of the system

24 million to Jason Kapono might take the cake.

NBA TV reporting that the lakers job is phil jacksons to take

Isn't that pretty much the case with any open coaching position in the league?

He shot 3 techs the other night earlier this week. Two of them with what you'd call more worthy guys by way of percentage on the floor. Looked token to me, like he wants him to work on his reps, and also showing confidence in the kid, to motivate him even more.

In other words, an intended vulture.

Yeah, I think there might be something to him wanting to shoot all the free-throws so he can work on his form in the middle of games. He is shooting free throws better than last year, at least.

Or he just wants to pad his stats. I dunno.

Cool. But see, reception is the key, I actually was giving the 'team' a direct compliment. Turner included. It's never been personal here, concering him, or you. Never will be. I just want, and have opinions (and many criticisms) on what I think is best for the team. That's all, nothing more nothing less.

I will take your word for it, let's have a fun season

PHI 93, TOR 83 Final.

4-2 on the year, back at it Monday night.

POTG goes to Hawes, with Nick Young and Ivey also getting serious consideration.

You can't stand him right ;-).

He played great defense and got 12 boards and 4 assists on 2nd game of a back to back. Give him a little break :-)

I didn't say anything bad about Turner, I don't think. Mentioned the 2 turns in a row in he fourth. And also the two passes he botched that went as turns for Jrue, but overall, he played a decent game. 8 points on 7 FGA and 5 FTA is poor efficiency, but nought he was definitely a plus on the floor tonight.

user-pic
speeke reply to Brian on Nov 10 at 22:27

evan didnt play great on O, played good D for the most part though. i hope it was something about the ball and floor being slippery tonight cause ET especially was slipping and had butter fingers. i wish he'd step into some threes off drive and kick, he hit two that looked pretty true last night

The important thing for me is that when his jumper isn't falling and the defense can collapse on him, he doesn't start gunning and forcing the issue. If he can have his mind set to taking what the defense gives him, working off of Jrue, and testing the water with a few jumpers, then this should be a smooth season.

Wow, Nick Young was +25 and Royal was +22...good for them, we needed a big bench contribution tonight after the starters played so many minutes last night.

Royal with cheese! Underrated game for him - 8 points on 3 shots, 5 assists, 3 rebounds, 3 steals, 0 turnovers, and very solid D and hustle in 19 mins off the bench.

user-pic
eddies' heady's on Nov 11 at 10:24

48 assists on 74 made fgs the last two games. Really like seeing that. Good ball movement and not much selfishness.

Hope he gives Thad, Jrue, and Evan the day off if they are even practicing at all today. Their legs have to be weary from all the minutes in both games of the back to back.

Collins' best coaching is done BEFORE Sixers take the court. He's a master at pre-game Psych 101, learned at the esteemed Players University, refined at Network School of Broadcasting. In-game work is tenacious but questionable at times in its tension and impulsive reactivity.

Early take: '12-'13 Sixers are scrappers, like recent versions, "fighters" as Jrue has posited, with more mistake-erasing firepower from deep than in previous seasons. Because of their individual game preparedness and their characteristic pugnacity, they'll feast on the lower portion of NBA franchises, will meet problems defeating upper rung 8 to 10 who can match their competitive intensity and depth.

[Evaluation formed without entering Bynum as a playing factor due to the fact that he's not playing, nor is there any indication that he'll soon been jumpin', pumpin' and showing Philadelphia somethin'.]

The Sixers are going to look good because of their easy schedule. 8 of their next 10 games are against teams that aren't expected to make the playoffs. They're going to struggle when Bynum comes back.

Should we be worried about the Knicks? They might be the 2nd best team in the EAST this year.

The Knicks have been the best team in the NBA so far, but i don't think they can keep this up. Their age will inevitably show up later in the season and Stoudemire's return might screw up their newly built chemistry (and spacing with Anthony at PF). I think the Knicks benefited from an easy schedule (only 4 games so far, whereas half the league has 6 or 7) and a prolonged training camp due to the postponed Nets game.

Knicks loaded with know-how, confidence it generates; long season attrition, a question. Woodson has their respect and attention.

Money on table, Boston will wake up, barring injuries to any of Big 3.

Team in Miami is hard to contain, could beat most others while wearing Tom McAn's.

Brooklyn has potential nice balance of scoring and boarding, defense their achilles. Secret weapon, Reggie Evans.

Return of Rose will bloom sweet for Chicago, even with changes from last year; still D-in' it up.

Sixers front office getting worried about Andrew Bynum rehab according to hoopshype.com/rumors

I believe Bynum knee is a little more hurt than the front office was letting on & I wouldn't be surprised if we didn't see Bynum on the floor until next yr sometime maybe Jan/Feb after all-star break.

link?

The actual source of the article is Mitch Lawrence in the New York Daily News - more credibility than Vescey - but not sure how much he knows about the sixers here. Then again, ownership lives in New York (which I find bothersome) so who knows

Jrue Holiday -

"growing every single minute of every single game"
"genius with dribble"..."never seems to overdribble"

Facts: Leads league in turnovers with 34. (Runner-up, James Harden, 30) Assist/TO ratio: 1.68

Above voices are welcome to return to earth. Bonus: The Sixers play down here.

And your 'runner up' in your counting stat category with no context is the early season MVP in some eyes

So maybe you're over exaggerating the fact that it's a problem.

Haven't seen Harden; know he scored a ton in 1st 2 gms post-trade. (What numbskull considers an MVP at this juncture?) Have seen most of Jrue context. The turnovers are real, all too frequent. But that's secondary.

My main address was the unchallenged sentimental, unrealistic comments regarding Holiday, productive but sloppy point guard. As a fan, not into free rides on love trains.

Maybe you're overdefending the fact that those comments were posted.

Yeah, if only we had Jameer. Jrue is turning it over too much, but at the expense of creating offense (3rd in the league in Assists/Game), which this team sorely needs without Bynum.

There's two reasons to be alright with this. First, he's had a few charges go against him, but he's trying to get to the rim. I can live with that. Many of his shots last year were pseudo-turnovers. The live-ball turnovers are what you really want to avoid.

Also, those turnovers you reference can be a misleading number. For instance, last night's number was three too many (He hits Turner in the hands twice last night, Jrue's turnovers though. Lavoy gets stuck and throws a horrible pass to Jrue, which he half handles but then loses, also Jrue's turnover).

He's going to have to take care of the ball better, but again, he's never come close to having this sort of freedom/responsibility. So he should get better and some of this bad luck should normalize. Oh yeah, Bynum would certainly help the degree of difficulty.

You're a Jrue romantic.

Any turnover: scoring opportunity down the drain. If Jrue is attributed, Jrue is accountable. (Each of my traffic tickets had extenuating circumstances, yet the darn DMV assigned me points. Imagine that.)

With 6 of 82 precincts reporting, Holiday's ORtg 99, DRtg 99 [100 is avg.], WS O.6. Each number represents lowest of his career to date, in early contradiction of PR drumbeat. The next 76 "trombones" of JH directorship, in whole, will sound loudly, one way or another.

The young man has talent; I'm not yet sure if indivisibly helming an offense - as Collins has assigned - is his forte.


OK, so you don't understand how to interpret these stats. Defensive rating is points allowed per 100 possessions, so you want the lowest number. 99 is the best number of his career.

And win shares accumulate over a whole season, so of course it's at the lowest right now. He's on pace to smash it though, because his win shares per 48 minutes is at .115 when it was at .94 and .92 the last two years.

I believe in his talent, and think that so far he's done a nice job keeping the offense without Bynum. 99 is the same offensive rating he had last year, and now he's doing it up to this point with a bunch of shooters who have frankly struggled. Context is everything here. There are the signs that he'll get better, whether you believe them or not. And even if the team rating improves only a little bit, he's playing with a weak supporting cast. Nobody should expect this group of players to be Top 10 in offense.

Can you give me half-credit, teach? Because his offensive number - 99 - IS below average. And his 1st 2 yrs WERE slightly better offensively (100, 104) than year 3 & play to date this season, at least according to one advanced statistic scale. I participate in class, don't I? And I humbly appreciate your corrections. C'mon, have a heart.

Has anybody read what Spencer did this offseason? E.Turner needs to get on the same regimen. He is so much quicker and agile, even more so than the beginning of last year.

Hopefully our organization's patience pays off with this investment. Him, Thad , Evan and Jrue may live up to their salaries yet.

If Turner wasn't ball hungry he'd be a ball boy. His out-of-the-gate speed reminds me of Barney Google's bow-legged horse, Spark Plug. His doughiness brings "Hot Plate" Williams to mind.

Spence is in good shape. Shouldn't all 24 yr old pros be there? Easy at that age if you don't slouch and pig-out. It's called doing your job.

"Spence is in good shape. Shouldn't all 24 yr old pros be there? Easy at that age if you don't slouch and pig-out. It's called doing your job."

Absolutely! ET has to lay off the late night pizza urges and work out with Spence. They probably don't share the same political beliefs............

Why not? They're in the same 1% income bracket (adjusted gross income of $343,927 or more).

Pretty easy to say the heat, bulls, knicks, and pacers are all better than us right now.

However when/if bynum comes back, i believe we can leap frog the bulls, as long as rose is out. Well be better than the pacers (with bynum) until granger returns.

Thus i could envision 4th seed. But that requires bynum coming back soon. Spence wont be able to carry this production throughout the season as evidenced by last year.

i read somewhere the pacers were struggling. granger out, downgraded at backup pg from collison to dj augustine. i still like their squad though and think Paul George is gonna be an all star eventually.

The Grizzlies completely dominated the Heat yesterday. The Heat had huge problems defending their "post presence + three point shooters" show yesterday. Can't wait for Bynum to start playing and provide the Sixers with the same dimension.


P.S. Nobody talks about them but the Grizzlies are neck and neck with the Knicks so far as the best teams early in the season. If they can stay healthy i think they are going to be a major force out west.

Remember how happy everyone was at the Bynum press conference? Yeah, me too.

The reported January target time frame for Bynum's return is disappointing, but somewhat expected at this point. The article says it could take 1 to 4 weeks for his conditioning after he's back practicing next month, so maybe Bynum could be back sooner if he can get in shape quickly?

I'd be careful getting all crazy about the long term outlook for the Grizzlies or the Knicks. In a small sample size they are tough ... and the Knicks are a bad matchup for the Sixers ... but at the end of the day neither team has enough defense to be a serious contender.

The Knicks are a lot better on D when Carmelo decides to play defense ... but I'll want to see that for an extended period of time before I'll be sold.

If Mo Speezy is getting serious minutes on a team, eventually they are going to come back to the back because he can't be bothered on the defensive end.

You can't really make any predictions based on 6-8 games - but people will do it anyway.

The knicks still have the Amare Conundrum when he comes back

The Grizzlies aren't really a surprise though. They've been pretty good for a while. The only thing that has kept them frmo truly contending were injuries and if they can stay reasonably healthy this year they can be as good as anyone.

The Jeff Ruland parallels are becoming more and more striking. Ruland played 5 games for the 86-87 Sixers, who still made the playoffs without him behind the emerging Charles Barkley (but lost in the first round). 26 years later, we have Jrue in the Barkley role, Bynum as Ruland, Jason Richardson filling the Cliff Robinson role (the secondary player the Sixers got from the trade), Iguodala filling the Moses role (primary prayer they traded away), Vucevic as Catledge (the secondary player they traded away), Harkless as Harvey Grant (mid-first-round pick they traded away), and one more first-rounder in both trades. I didn't realize until today that the two trades were so structurally similar (Sixers traded 2 players and 2 first-rounders and got 2 players back). I'll just be happy if Bynum plays more than 5 games for this year's Sixers ...

Except that Ruland was never as close to good as Bynum is when healthy.

Dude has bad knees, he was going to miss games this year, he has a history of stalling treatment that could have been done earlier...none of this should surprise anyone

user-pic
Statman reply to GoSixers on Nov 12 at 13:36
+/-

I would put up Ruland's two best full seasons (82-83 and 83-84) against any of Bynum's seasons, especially considering Ruland was the #1 guy in Washington and Bynum was never more than #2A for the Lakers. I do agree that Bynum is better, but not that Ruland wasn't even close to his level.

One big difference between that trade and this one, though, is that Ruland was two seasons removed from a healthy season when the Sixers made that trade, while Bynum just had one of his healthiest seasons. So in that sense, these Sixers are more unfortunate.

So you're going to mark down Bynum because he played with one of the best in the game for most of his career? That's the kind of thinking that makes no sense to me. Bynum would be the #1 option on more than half the teams in the league (when healthy) and you're discounting him cause the Lakers were smart enough to draft him.

Sorry - if that's part of your argument it has no legs

user-pic
Statman reply to GoSixers on Nov 12 at 14:16
+/-

My main argument was a narrow one: that Ruland's best two healthy seasons were as impressive (if not more so) than Bynum's best season. Plenty of players across all sports have flourished as a #2 option but couldn't handle it as a #1 (in the NFL, I call this the "Peerless Price Effect"). If you are optimistic that Bynum will flourish as a #1 option for the Sixers once he is healthy, that is fine -- but that opinion is not based on any hard evidence to this point in his career. Personally, I'll be surprised (but pleasantly so) if he ever averages a 22-12 for the Sixers like Ruland did in his best season.

Agree that at the same age they both were top tier centers. Don't think you can really argue that Bynum was a clearly better center than Ruland comparing them from age 23 to 25. Their teams had different degrees of success, but likewise they had very different teammates.

http://bkref.com/tiny/B6ze2

I used Ruland at 25 becasue I thought it was unfair to compare his 2nd year in the NBA (age 24) when Bynum at age 24 was in his 7th.

The numbers can argue that Bynum was a bit more productive on a per minute basis. But Ruland carried a bad team to the playoffs- which certainly counts for something- sspecially when you look at how his scoring was both more effecient and greater than Bynum despite having to carry a much bigger burden.

Ruland would have made the HOF without the injuries. The Sxiers still made a huge misttake given he was injured well befoer they traded for him. But I don't agree that Bynum was somehow a class above Ruland.

To see it you would have had to be in San Antonio and hung around court bside after the game. It's really something to observe this guy. I actually had hoped the Sixers would draft either Cousins or Turner --- and while the guy seems to have tremendous upside it seems like a cloud just follows him around.

He went back out on the court out of the locker room 20 minutes after the game because he didn't like what an announcer said about him.

Once you get a rep like his, the last thing you need to do is keep giving people reasons to say you are a bad guy. Not sure I get it with him, but kind of like Iverson, he's gonna do what he's gonna do I guess.

Jennings eating up Ivey now. We're still lax on getting back on D. Bailed out that time by an Ivey steal.

Spencer J.

Dorell steal. Ugh, Ivey screwed up that break royally. Ends with a Dorell miss from corner 3.

Turner always sticks out like a sore thumb when he plays. He's doesn't look like he belongs there out on the floor with the rest of the guys. He's just not in the same realm of athleticism. Whenever he goes up for a dunk, I'm always worried he'll miss.

And get Turner out too.

all things considered, I am ok being down only after that dogshit lineup played half of the 4th quarter

What was that story they told about J-Rich getting fired up? Was it a Philly fan who called him washed up?

no a bucks fan did when he was with the magic

Dammit Jrue Holiday!!! Just a fucking careless pass to Hawes there. Layup on other end. Dammit Jrue.

Tell me Jrue isn't turnover prone. That pass to Spence was almost #8. Getting to the line though

Jrue w/ last 2 shots blocked. It's over, Dunleavy 3.

11-2 MIL run, Mother F me!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Jrue came in and sank them. Growing pains?

No idea how Collins doesn't see his errant passing all training camp and doesn't immediately get a backup PG.

It's pretty fucked up when Jrue makes me almost want to say I'd like to see Turner in the game. That's bad coming from me.
