Don't Do It To Us

The change to the starting line-up seems obvious. Wright in, Turner out.

Turner takes over Ivey's minutes and then some. Cut Evan back to 20 minutes per night, unless you are getting crushed on the glass and let Dorell space the floor with JRich.

Lavoy for Kwame is going to help anything.

everyone on the same page?

That's what I'd do, but I really don't know what he's going to do. He's been really tight w/ Wright's minutes for a while now, I'd be surprised if he suddenly puts him in the starting lineup.

probably going to be Hawes moving back into the starting unit is my guess. Can't see him inserting Wright with his lack of minutes lately.

I don't expect Turner to be yanked from the starting lineup. It will be Mr. Zero aka Kwame Brown.

Would bet it's Lavoy Allen in place of Kwame Brown, who didn't play after the first 5 1/2 minutes last night.

Story (with Dorell Wright video): Wright on recent limited role: 'This is nothing new to me'

http://www.phillyburbs.com/sports/sixers/wright-limited-minutes-nothing-new-to-me/article_0ecbe249-9455-5e7c-83f5-90ce0b04cceb.html

Ric Bucher is saying he's hearing Bynum is out for the season

Absolutely not surprised - and my guess is the sixers will be happy about it - can easily let him walk and have dumped Iguodala's contract - probably won't spend that money

harkless is starting for the magic tonight

Dei Lynam also said Collins isn't changing the lineup

@PDcavsinsider
Daniel Gibson out for #Cavs tonight against Philly with continued right elbow soreness. He missed the game at Philly on Sunday, too

kevin love is playing tonight, will probably be ok to face the sixers in a couple weeks

Reggie Evans gets the first flopping fine, is anyone surprised? I suspected it would be him or Varejao.

Yeah, run JRich off some curls or something.

If Jrue doesn't try to take over and get his own, it's like our offense is almost zilch. Half the time it looks they aren't even trying to run any sets except that clogged up high pick and roll for Jrue.

hey Dollar Bill has any team ever run an all-facemask lineup out there before?

Not that the results would be positive, but I don't like that Kwame doesn't even look for his back to the basket offense. He should be more than just a body on offense out there ala Sammy D.

Turner looks like he's releasing his shot on the way up instead of near the top of his jump. It's like he's launching it up there. It is quite ugly and ineffective.

And always has been

3 min left in the first. Already down 10, shooting 2-12, 5 total rebs while CLE has 7 offensive boards (15 total)

That's just being outworked and all comes down to effort, and the offensive woes are just execution or making shots. Pitiful display.

Almost every game I feel like this is gonna be the last time I say "probably the worst first quarter they've played", but each time they seem to exceed it nearly each time out. Poor ass effort. Just no excuse for it on this level.

Still no offensive flow like last night. All mostly one on one. Defensive end of the floor is nothing but a lack of effort. No fucking desire showing from any one single guy out there when on that end of the floor. Pisses me the fuck off to keep watching shit like that.

Dag Jrue, you had Dorell on the pop-out. Instead giving it up off penetration to Hawes in the corner for a bricked 3. Ugh.

Except for that 14-3 run, not that much of a better quarter there. Defense still slack, offense was a tad better with some semblance of ball movement on a limited number of possessions though.

Shooting sucks donkey doo though. No one, and I mean no one can hit anything tonight so far. Can't stay that bad I'd hope...

6-0 run in the final two minutes (should be 7 if guy could shoot free throws) - can't have that

I think we expected a little better than this.... thought they'd pull together on the road and keep improving in the half court offense and communication - now they're playing street ball?

Lavoy committed those two stupid fouls and never saw the maple again. He's officially in the doghouse. You'd think Moultrie couldn't possibly be as bad as he's been, no?

Lavoy was trying to stay out of foul trouble and Cleveland guards were intentionally attacking him in the paint. I can understand why Collins would sit him, but I just don't understand why he would let Hawes in the game even though he was getting raped on the court.

user-pic
eddies' heady's reply to Stan on Nov 21 at 21:29

Huh? Lavoy was only in for 2 minutes. And one of his fouls was committed on Varejao with a nudge in the back. To what are you referring when you say that the guards were attacking him intentionally and he was trying to stay out of foul trouble? Did you even watch?

Go back and watch the game right before Lavoy was benched. One of Cleveland's guards (I think it was CJ Miles) drove straight to the basket and Lavoy got out of his way. On the possession before that he allowed Varajao to get a rebound without challenging him.

He picked up 2 fouls in 1 minute and was playing to avoid foul trouble. That's why Collins benched him.

user-pic

And it should not go without mentioning, but our true "big" guys need to find a sack and show it, quick. Spencer and Kwame played a combined 40 min tonight and accumulated a whopping 8 rebounds. Varejao had 7 OFFENSIVE rebounds himself in only 34 minutes (19 total).

Third game (MIL, DET) where we cause way more turnovers than the opponent and get beat. We shot like crap and they sort of did too, but they beat us from deep. Pargo and Gee.

Yeah, gee....

Enjoy your Thanksgiving everyone. Tough way to start the holiday, unfortunately.

Hope you and yours are recovered to the point where you can fully enjoy the holiday.

Paul George hit 9 3-pointers yesterday and broke Reggie Miller's franchise record. Roy Hibbert had a triple double in blocks, rebounds, and points. The Wizards won their first game.

Looking forward to it, though believe it's gonna be a frustrating one. Think they're going to get slaughtered.

This will probably be the last start for either Turner or Richardson.

This will probably be the last start for either Turner or Richardson.

'Slaughter' seems unlikely to me - Sixers: fresh legs, home arena, coming off embarrassing loss to Cavs, attuned to redemption by Rev. Doug's sermonizing; OKC "stale" legs, overnight travel, facing out-of-conference non-rival... bad taste of Thunders' BOS loss, the one thing workin' against Sixers, motivationally speaking. Wouldn't be surprised to see a pert 76ers team, at least for awhile.
