Sixers

, all the time

The easy to say, not so easy to execute philosophy for the game against the Spurs: Limit corner threes, limit penetration on the P&R, make Parker a shooter.

Honestly, i'd pack the lane and let them shoot reasonably open three from the top of the key all game. If they hit them so be it, but limiting corner threes and plays off Parkers penetration must be limited to a minimum.

The more i think about the Spurs the more i fantasize how similar the Sixers ideally could be: Holiday - the smart PG that can penetrate at will (Parker), Bynum - the star C, that can score and defend in many ways in the paint, the shooters - spotting up from the corners for corner threes (Wright, Richardson). Ideally Turner would be Ginobilli - the X-factor coming off the bench, but it's extremely unlikely Turner will ever be as good as Ginobilli, who should end up in the HOF when all is said and done.

The beauty about building around a PG and a C is that there are so many possibilities. And the Sixers are so close to it - healthy and resigned Bynum.

I am attending tonight. Does anyone have any hecklng fodder? My seats are close enough for this sort of activity.

My recent highlight is yelling "Hey Andray, no means no!" at the Nets game while he was still a person if interest. He definitely heard me.

You're a fortunate guy. Enjoy. Just don't scream anything of a pungent nature to Doug or you could get the evil eye. You might try yelling something at the top of your lungs during a lull; anything, really, will gather attention. Content comes down to personal choice; it must be organic. Remember Luciano Pavarotti who heckled with majesty.

j rich out, wright to start

ugh Reggie miller

More shots of Hawes in the Sixers intro than Jrue. Hawesome!

How about putting Jrue in the post right away. First couple plays, make Parker guard him down there and keep a three-point shooter on the strong side for the kick out.

If Pop caught wind of the NOH tape, I expect to see plenty of Splitter high pick and rolls early here. Of course, he didn't have to see the NOH tape to figure that out cause they killed us last time with it.

This broadcast is ugly, Charles. Are you and Reggie going to make any attempt to show that you're paying attention to this game or are you just going to engage in a 2 hour version of one of your TNT gabfests?

They'll probably just treat the whole game like it's garbage time. Just hope it isn't.

Close the backdoor, Jrue.

Parker getting into the lane way too easily

They used to be competitive against Spurs back when Sammy would get up to guard Timmy.

I would have loved to see how they would have matched up this year with a healthy Bynum. Would at least be interesting.

Thad cheats down to help Jrue w/ TP's penetration leading to a Diaw 3.

That's not accurate at all on the first count. Thad cheated down because Hawes hedged and didn't even impede Parker. Just opened his hips and let him go right by.

Parker is a bull when he gets a head of steam. Can't possibly stop him. Especially when Hawes' lard ass is often in your way.

If it isn't at or below 10 by the end of the third, just rest Jrue and Thad in the fourth. No use blowing tomorrow night's game as well. Milwaukee is home resting, waiting for the Sixers. Which isn't much of a shock this season.

I don't know what your point is. It is true that Jrue gets to the line at a pretty poor rate, which is why, for example, he has a worse TS% than the supposedly scuffling Deron Williams, who's shooting 40% from the field to Jrue's 46%. You can blame it on the refs that this guy who practically every NBA writer thinks should be an All-Star doesn't get calls, but the idea that he's being shafted because he's not a star doesn't really explain why Isaiah Thomas, Dragic, Sessions, Kemba, Brandon Knight, Shved, Collison, and Devin Harris all get to the line more and in some cases vastly more than he does. What does help explain it is that he takes more long twos than any point guard in the league but Curry and more 10-15 footers than any point guard but Irving, while he's only eleventh in attempts at the rim. As a percentage of his offense, shots around the basket aren't that big compared to a lot of point guards. And in any event, not every player who goes to the basket a lot gets to the line a lot; look at Rondo, who takes more shots at the rim than Jrue and gets to the line even less.

My point was they both lost. I didn't say anything about the refs.

I actually think the refs were pretty even in the Sixers game last night, favoring the Sixers is anything. Also think Jrue has been getting more calls lately.

Turner- 18 points on 15 shots, with 12 rebounds and 7 assists.
Hawes- 16 points on 12 shots, with 6 rebounds, 4 assists and 3 blocks.

Trade them NAOW!, while they can still net something positive for them.

man do i hate to say it but it sure would've been nice to see the old LouWill drain the clock offense there at the end...

...but did i not hear that one white announcer call Jrue a SUPERSTAR coming out of that half??

Bad night for Jrue to press and have a terrible game. I guess it's part of the learning curve.

Really disappointed about last night. They needed this one. If they lose at Milwaukee, not sure they will be able to make the playoffs now. Even if Bynum does come back right after the allstar break, they might be in too big of a hole. The schedule gets tougher in March and April, lots of road games and Bynum's minutes will surely be monitored early, possibly coming off the bench.

@WindhorstESPN
Just filed to ESPN: Cavs & Grizzlies are in talks on a deal that would send Marreese Speights & Josh Selby for Jon Leuer. Picks involved

more games vs speights!

I can't believe the Griz would want to trade Speights. He's such a gamer.
