Visiting An Old Friend

jason smith has been getting most of the minutes as the 2nd big but with anderson back and hawes not really a postup guy they can move davis to center

A Davis might be a top 5 player in the league next year

o/u 3.5 shots blocked by davis when turner drives?

In Jrue's defense, I think that Davis's usage is no lower than you'd want it to be right now - 22 points on 16 shots a game, plus seven trips to the line, seems right for a young big man with a game that's still evolving - and the shooting guard who can fill it up shot 40% from the field last year and 40% this year (44% from three, but 38.8 percent from inside the arc), so maybe his injury problems are legit and he's just a diminished player. Between the two of them, Gordon should probably shoot the the ball more, but not way more, and he already has a 24% usage himself. And after those three, there's really no player who's been active on the roster, besides Evans, who scores. (Morrow should be passed to when open, and Jason Smith is Jason Smith, but that's about it.) And Evans has been disastrous. Also, doesn't usage factor in possessions that Jrue isn't necessarily trying to use for himself, like his 4 turnovers a game?

Considering the way Thad, Hawes, and Turner are playing this year, I disagree that Jrue's usage rate was justified because of the teammates he had in Philly. They are all playing better than Jrue. It was simply in Jrue's own mind that he was so much better than his teammates.

Hmm...well that could be it

Or - you know - replacing an awful coach with a smart one might have something to do with it as well

"In the Sixers favor: They can hide Turner on Aminu on the defensive end. Of course, they "hid" him on DeMarre Carroll last night, and that didn't work out very well."

Turner wasn't guarding Carroll on 4 of his 5 threes last night, so not sure what you mean here.

I like Jrue, hope he figures it out in NO. He's never played with a star big before so I think there's an adjustment period.

I hope he figures it out next year and has a successful career. They need a new coach and gm.

Be nice if Wroten and Anderson resembled the guys we saw against HOU instead of ATL.

Sure would have liked to have seen MCW on Jrue and how he would fare defensively. And vice versa with Jrue on him.

Turner was on Gordon there, not sure if it was because it was transition-ish. Yeah, he's on Aminu now.

I just love how he immediately threw his arms up after getting cleanly blocked.

yep. So much for not bitching to the refs.

...so NO could've had that unibrow'd fellow next to Nerlens and passed on that for...jrue?

Excusable airball.

anderson is gonna go off if lavoy is on him

You can't put Lavoy on Anderson. That's stupid coaching.

Seriously, whenever Turner drives, if he doesn't employ some type of deception move (change of direction dribble, pump fake etc), he literally looks like he's in slow motion.

Just no explosiveness existent whatsoever. And it's so glaring to even the most novice viewer.

down 12 end of the 1st

22-34 after one.

They keep saying 5 blocks for AD, but ESPN only has him with three.

Hmmn. ESPN's box score is way behind tonight. Switching to NBA.com.

Nice offense, guys.

Thad blocked again, this time by the iron I think. Davis would have gotten it regardless.

Turnerover then possibly a flagrant foul on AD, but at least he didn't let him get the +1.

Tyreke with a eff you move.

Wroten for a triple. Turner embarrassed by Evans in transition on the other end. Brown needs a TO so he can pick up his jock.

That was hilarious on the replay. He basically ran himself into the screener and hugged him before Tyreke even made the move.

good drive by wroten

et fouls gordon

Think they switched to a zone there, Anderson misses a wide-open three on the first possession against it.

Doesn't sound good in the Big Easy. Depend on you loyal guys to provide the game threading. Much needed some nights. Good work; insightful, apt, and descriptive.

Turner with the "I'm running away from you!" defensive strategy. Still fouls the shooter.

Turner tries his hardest to turn it over, but has settle for an airball.

If games like this become the norm, then it will be like myself and others assumed it would be every night in the offseason, straight blowouts, and early ones at that.

MCW's injury doesn't help things. Everyone looks so gassed already though.
