Click for full story. When fully healthy, the Charlotte Bobcats might just be the worst team in the NBA. Without Gerald Henderson and D.J. Augustin, well, it's a little less debatable. The Sixers have made a habit out of destroying teams like this, they need to keep their foot on the gas tonight and chalk up another road win heading into another tough stretch of games beginning Wednesday.

Click for full story. If you had told me the Sixers would be 10 games over .500 at any point during the 2011-2012 season back in the summer, I would've bet my life on the catalyst being Jrue making a major leap in his third season. Well, they're ten games over, so let's take a look at how much of that has to do with Jrue's development.

Click for full story. It's good to know the stretch of seven games against top-notch opponents didn't make the Sixers forget how to treat a bad team. Last night, the Sixers manhandled the Cavs and put another lopsided win on the board. (game capsule).

Click for full story. The Sixers manhandled the #2 offense in the league tonight. They held them to 78 points. They made Blake Griffin use 19 shots to score 16 points. They held Chris Paul to 4 assists. They did all of that, and absolutely, positively pissed the game away on the offensive end. (game capsule).

Click for full story. If the Sixers spent their practice yesterday ironing out their pick-and-roll defense, as they should have, tonight their work will be put to the test. Tony Parker was brilliant on Wednesday, but he's clearly a rung or two below Chris Paul on the PG ladder. Paul has been beyond brilliant in his first 18 games with the Clippers, and he has a couple of elite finishers to set up if the Sixers leave any creases open.

Click for full story. Now that the Sixers have their representatives in both the JV game (Evan Turner) and the main event (Andre Iguodala) for All-Star weekend, let's take a look at whether Jodie Meeks deserves an invite to the three-point shootout.

Click for full story. It's probably long overdue, but our very own Andre Iguodala has finally made the All Star team. It's great for AI9 to get the recognition, and I think it should be mandated that when the Inquirer refers to him from now on they should replace "grossly overpaid" with "All Star." Congrats to @mindofai9.

Click for full story. It's been a long, long time since the Sixers both had players deserving of being selected to the All Star team, and a good enough record for the team to be noticed around the league. This year, they've got both. The teams will be announced in a few short hours, get your prediction in early.

Click for full story. For the second consecutive game, a stout Western Conference opponent found a way to exploit the hidden underbelly of the Sixers defense. The Spurs didn't expose the Sixer bigs on the glass, instead they put their cement feet on display for all to see by running pick-and-roll after pick-and-roll. Jrue didn't even resemble the PG who's been shutting down opponents with regularity as he tried to go under, over and around a series of picks from big men on nearly every possession and failed more often than not while his bigs proved to be more of hindrance than a help. (game capsule).

Click for full story. Another Western Conference powerhouse heads into the WFC tonight. The Spurs, much like the Lakers, have been dreadful on the road, but also like the Lakers, they have a bevy of big men who will test the Sixers weakened front court. Will Philly be able to figure out a way to keep the Spurs bigs off the offensive glass, or at least be able to compensate for the deficit again?

Click for full story. There has been quite a bit of discussion on the Sixers' defensive performance vs. the Lakers.  Some of it was good (challenging of shots led to average 2-point and excellent 3-point percentages against, 16 turnovers forced), some of it was bad (all those rebounds!).  So who was responsible for what?  One way to tell is to do what I did a couple times last year, compute a reverse boxscore, by assigning all Lakers statistics to a Sixer.  In the reverse boxscore, defensive rebounds, steals, and blocks are all accumulated while the Sixers are on offense, while all other stats are accumulated while the Sixers are on defense.  When there are switches on defense, I usually assign the shot attempts/makes to the final defender, not to the initial defender (same for offensive rebounds allowed).

Click for full story. I feel kind of bad for writing a headline like that about the Sixers, because they're honestly the furthest thing from a one-man-show in the NBA today. But Lou Williams absolutely put this game away and he deserves a ton of credit for stepping up and carrying the Sixers down the stretch. This win over the Lakers was amazing on so many different levels, I don't even know where to begin. (game capsule).
