A team full of kyle korvers! Ha.
Love it !

If only they could hit 3s like him :).

to go 7-5 they need to beat the 5 non playoff teams(TOR, WASH, SAC, ORL, CHAR) then split the 2 games vs MIL and then steal 1 game vs SAN, NYK, MEM, IND and LAC

dont think it will happen

Sixers D: 5 tigers chasing opponents' tails around a tree until they, the tigers, have melted into butter.

Opp PTS/G: 97.2 (16th of 30); Def Rtg: 106.5 (18th of 30); Pace: sedentary; soporific.

Jrue Holiday's D has been sufferin' like your grandmother's succotash. Principles steadily applied - the first one being 'keep yourself between your man and the basket', the second one being 'see the ball at all times' - not occasional diva gloppings of a singular hounding mania, please. (Cannons aren't known for precision or maneuverability.)

As was disappointingly learned, Sixers can't afford the billable hours of the firm of Williams, Vasquez & Gordon. Tonight they'll try Casey, Calderon & Lowry.

Doug is bringing his red, white & blue Everlast silks in which to answer post-game questions. "In this cor-ner... ."

Hey, Mack, how's it goin? Welcome to Philadelphia, home of heartbreak and psoriasis and artery-clogging gastronomical delights and some of the world's finest bowling alleys. Good luck!

'see the ball at all times'

There was one play where Jrue followed Vasquez to the baseline, was basically face guarding him when Turner completely got burned on the other wing, if Jrue sees it, he can at least make a play to help. Noticed that one.

His on the ball defense was there all night though. Probably too aggressive at times (jumping over a screen too early, leaving the back door open), but if not for Jrue's effort, would've been a much, much worse team defensive effort. His DFR bears that out. They were only terrible defensively when he was on the floor (115 DFR), pathetic when he was out (the rest of the starters DFR's were between 126 and 132)

So a few bad plays, a few really good plays. Could've been better, but the best of the bunch. And he's the one you lay the blame on. Which is shocking. The Sixers win one matchup on both ends of the floor, and he's the problem.

Not a one game deal and you know it, but you clutch to your latest romance and drumbeating promotion of a young, growing but flawed, selfish-leaning player. (Hey, whatever happened to Iguodala, that recondite rambunctious rim rattler?)

Many have faced Jrue, many have toasted him... Hornets guards did what they wanted; Calderon, D. Williams, Parker, Westbrook, Dragic recently found comfort; only one effectively curtailed in last 7 was "Spaghetti Legs" Lin.

Holiday's a capable defender when he chooses but allows penetration too often (a negligence of job #1), which sets team to scramble mode. Takes plays, segments off. (Yes, I know he's tired from weavin' and jackin' at other end.) D is not his top priority nor is setting the table for others (577 shots taken, 72 more than #2 man Turner in 80 fewer minutes). Takes great pleasure in the unharnessed mano-mano, decision-removing "you score, I score" volleying. Slow wings and cheesecloth bigs not the only defensive problem of 5 Sixers players, whether you cop to it or not.

Athletic, ambitious player, but often not a cohesively smart or tough player.

What happened to Iguodala is he left Philly, and their defensive ranking went from #3 to #18. He joined Denver, and theirs went from #20 to #14.

And I realize nothing is going to stop you from blaming everything on Jrue, but you might want to consider some facts when blame him for losses. Like the fact that he plays with a number of useless players. For example, during his time on the floor against New Orleans, his teammates shot 16/43 from the floor. Which seems like a bad number, but it's much worse when you dig a little deeper. This team that Jrue is holding back by hogging the ball? They shot 9/21 within 5 feet of the hoop. 42% inside of 5 feet. Totally Jrue's fault. He's such a selfish bastard, how dare he take 17 shots.

You just hear that I blame everything on Jrue. Certainly not the case. The organization is ailing.

I'm kind of surprised that Denver isn't better defensively. Though if you look at Iguodala's on/off court numbers, they're basically getting killed in the quarter of the game when he's off the court, and really strong when he is.

recipe for win:

1) defend as a team
2) rebound as a man
3) share ball as a team
4) drive ball as a man
5) make FTs
6) expect spells of opponent success
7) keep cool head
8) persist in countering
9) keep persisting

PHL 55%, TOR 45% [basketball-ref.com]

anyone else worried that the magic number to make the playoffs is actually going to be a few games north of 500 this year? 500 isn't going to cut it.

I really wish they would get rid of this "stand out star" segment of Sixers pre game live. Its so pointless. And there reasoning it never based on match ups, its based on.... not really sure.

It's therapeutic to just sit and laugh at what you're actually witnessing. If you didn't, you'd need to be admitted. It'd be like Cee Lo's "Crazy"!

Raps still shooting 58%, 19 dimes on 24 made. What does that tell you?

bad team is bad

Harris and Co. had better do something about Doug being the coach and the GM. These were his moves. Why pay Kwame if you are never going to play him? Dorell and Nick are super redundant. No back-up point guard. 2 more years of Hawes? These are really bad personnel moves and someone needs to be held accountable. I used to think that Bynum would cure all ills, but we are just not athletic enough. Add Bynum and subtract Turner for a 3 that can get by someone and kick to these shooters, please.

I've supported Turner since day 1 and for 2.5 years i have been watching and praying for signs, but this is it. He's had his audition and now it's time to raise the white flag. We have to dump him as soon as possible. We could literally get a small forward from the D league that would be more efficient.

What is that quant they hired doing? He must be crunching the numbers on this team and just be flabbergasted at the negative impact Turner has on the team.

One thing I am sick of hearing is that Turner needs to play with confidence. Bottom line, if you can't maintain your confidence level in the pros then you shouldn't be a pro.

on a side note, i hope they keep losing now. They don't have enough pieces and drafting at 10 at least gives them a shot at landing a solid rotational player.

ALL STAr, MOTHERFUCKERS

Richardson Losing Calderon, AND giving up a wide open 3, up 4 with 1:30 left in overtime is awful. He's supposed to be a vet, you can't give up a 3 in that situation.

Even though this victory seems hollow, the game thread was the bomb. Good game guys.

What a line and performance from Jrue and Thad. Talk about efficiency. wow

Maybe Andrew will score the starring role on the show....

good job jrue and thad

Great thread guys. I was this close to giving up on the season. This team is maddening. Jrue was huge, obviously.

Thank God Coach Casey stuck with Lowry in the second half instead of going back to Calderon.

I'd like to get a guy like Jimmy Butler to play the 2 between Jrue and Thad, with Bynum. Think he'll continue to fit in well in this league.

Good thing Lowry didn't make that final shot of regulation. He would have outplayed Jrue then, I think.

Obviously. Of couse, Richardson was +13 and Jrue was only +7, so you know Jrue sucked.

Weirdest stat of the game: Sixers 51% FG Raps 45% FG, after the way it started who woulda thunk it.

Will have to check it out. Love him too. I just hope they keep him, because he's going to be worth more than whatever his trade value is now.

Write up coming in a bit. Just let me finish wiping the sweat off my brow. Wow.

Dollar Bill will probably go into hiding for a little bit after this one.

An Alfred, Lord Tennyson Special!

When can their glory fade?
O the wild charge they made!
All the world wonder'd.
Honour the charge they made!
Honour the Lightweight Brigade,
Noble fourteen!

Thad's true heart paved wide the road. Jrue drove the troops home with characteristic elan. Yet Gen. Collins was bitter in victory, emotionally bedraggled, licking wounds.

The key read is always Lance Corporal's Hawes' nostrils; when they flare, Sixers have a shot.

"'s" - delete, then greet - and soldier on!
