Click for full story. We've all heard Doug Collins talk about how he doesn't want his team to lose two in a row on their home court. Elton Brand has talked about it. Andre Iguodala has talked about it. Doug even talked about it yesterday. I always thought that was a great way to look at things, but I didn't realize how serious he was. Take a look at the schedule, the last time this team lost two games in a row on their home floor was November 17th.

Click for full story. I realize there have plenty of theoretically huge games for different emotional reasons, but tonight's matchup with the Knicks was really the biggest game this team has played all year. Seeding was on the line, finishing higher than a division rival, pride after the last two losses. Doug Collins should've had no problem getting his team up for this one. Well, they came out flat and disinterested and about 10 minutes of effort just isn't enough in this league.

Click for full story. The Sixers have done two things extremely well under Doug Collins this season: (1) Protected their home floor. They're 25-12 at the WFC with four games to go. (2) Bounced back from bad losses, even on the second night of back-to-backs. See the Chicago game last Monday, see the Boston game after the Chicago loss. See the win at the Clippers after the Utah loss. Those two patterns need to hold tonight against the Knicks.

Click for full story. The last time the Sixers played the Knicks in Philly, the roles were reversed. The Sixers were looking up at the Knicks in the standings, they needed to make up ground, they needed a win, badly. They were hungry. Let's take a look at how that game worked out in anticipation of tonight's showdown for sixth.

Click for full story. The good news is that Evan Turner stepped up in his new role and looked the part of the number two pick in the draft. The bad news is that the Sixers did their best imitation of the Butler Bulldogs in the second half and kind of embarrassed themselves against a team they may face in the first round of the playoffs.

Click for full story. I don't know about you, but the color green turns my stomach when I see it on the basketball court. The Celtics are the enemy, plain and simple. Pierce, Garnett, Rondo and Allen are a scourge on my basketball world and there's nothing I enjoy more than seeing the Sixers beat them. Tonight, the Sixers need to tap into some of that hatred, they need to stir it up, relish in it, and send a message to a rival and possible first-round opponent.

Click for full story. Lou Williams is definitely out for the next five games, possibly longer. Yesterday, we talked about how his minutes might be redistributed, we talked about Evan Turner's opportunity, we talked about Antonio Daniels being signed, we talked about what the team would be missing in Lou's absence. What we didn't look at is the possible positives of life without Lou.

Click for full story. Lou's MRI confirmed a strain of his right hamstring on Sunday. There is no definitive return date, it looks like they're going to reevaluate the injury frequently before committing to a timetable. At this point, there's no rush. Get him 100% fully healthy by the time the playoffs start, that's got to be the only priority. In the mean time, the team has five games left and they need to figure out how to fill Lou's spot.

Click for full story. The list of things that could've swung this game the other way is very, very long. If Jrue hits even half of the good looks he missed, they win. If Brand connects on one or two more of those elbow jumpers, they win. If Jrue's pass to Thad on the final play of regulation isn't three feet too high, they win. For tonight, take solace in that, chalk this one up as an ugly loss, and move on. When you wake up tomorrow, though, realize they have to rebound from this game quickly, and it's not going to be easy.

Click for full story. In yet another "this is what good teams do" type of game, the Sixers absolutely manhandled the Nets at the Wells Fargo Center last night. Right from the opening tip, it was clear which of these teams would eventually be heading to the playoffs. At the final buzzer, it was official.
