|Golden State temporarily halted their slide right out of the playoff picture with a recent three-game winning streak at home. They hit another chute immediately upon heading out east or a four-game trip. The Sixers can extend GSW's losing jag to four tonight, or tack another onto heir own, pushing it to eight.|

|The idea began as a team-wide look at how poorly the Sixers performed in the month of February. The task ended with the starting lineup, there didn't seem to be much of a need to dig any deeper.|
|Sixers at Bulls on TNT. On paper, this game probably should've featured a Bulls team with Derrick Rose back from injury and a Sixers team with a hulking mass of domination in the middle cementing their bid for home court in the playoffs. Instead, we'll probably get the privilege of seeing Nate Robinson vs. Jeremy Pargo for about 30 minutes. Wonderful.|
|It must really irk the tanking-inclined among us to see how the Sixers were prime facilitators in the building of a nearly perfect bottom-dweller in Orlando. Tonight, we'll see who wants it less in one of the few easy wins left on the Sixers schedule this year.|
|Fresh off a well-played 24-point loss to the Heat, the Sixers head to NYC to take on a struggling Knicks team. New York has dropped four straight in spectacular fashion. If the Sixers regulars can muster the same effort tonight they did last night, they should be able to pull off the upset. Don't hold your breath, though.|
|If the Sixers can muster every last bit of hustle, swarm the ball, hit their open long twos and Miami has an off game, the Sixers might just be able to only lose by about 15 points tonight. Excited?|
|The break is over, the trade deadline is tomorrow and the Sixers will lace 'em up in Minnesota tonight sans Andrew Bynum and Thad Young. The TWolves have been atrocious since Kevin Love went down with a broken hand, the only thing uglier than their 3-16 record over their past 19? Rubio's shooting percentages.|
|Happy belated Valentine's Day everyone. Hope your love life is treating you better than your Sixers fan life these days. Fresh off their first loss in which they carried a lead into the fourth quarter, the Sixers (minus Jrue) won't play for a week. Let's take a realistic at what this team's options are going forward.|
|Yes, this is about as big as the final game prior to the All Star break can get for a team who has clearly played over its head through the first 50 games of the season (and playing over its head led to a 22-28 record). Beat Milwaukee, in Milwaukee tonight and the Sixers will go into the break only two games out of the playoffs. Lose, and the deficit grows to four games.|

|The suddenly-healthy Clippers are legit. Legit as in they could possibly come out of the West if Del Negro can push the right buttons. Typically, with the talent they have on their roster I wouldn't pin the post season hopes so much on a coach, but LA is so deep, with so many different options, he's going to have to pull the right strings to get through several seven-game series. Tonight, against the Sixers, he probably won't have to pull too many to grab the road win.|
|On the heels of losing Thad Young for three weeks, the Sixers suffered through a terrible loss at the hands of the Pacers last night and found out they'll be without the services of Jason Richardson for the remainder of the season. Richardson has been pretty pedestrian this year, and they've made due without him for the past three weeks, but he's an able body. Something this team is lacking more and more each day.|
Latest comment: from TrayHawes vs. Kemba? At least Kemba vs. Jrue makes some sense. Kemba's had a few good games recently....
|The Indiana Pacers bring a 4-game win streak into the WFC tonight to face the Sixers, including a win yesterday and a win Monday. Tonight, the Sixers have to push the pace. Make Indy expend a ton of energy early and often. See if you can steal a win against what has to be a tired squad.|
|Standing on the weak side, with his man a few feet away, waving his arms wildly in the air as if he's open. Holding his hands out at his sides, begging for a foul while the other team is busy converting his turnover into a transition hoop. Shoving someone out of the way after they've dunked on him so he can retrieve the ball and pass it inbounds. Pointing fingers when he's in the wrong spot on the defensive end and his man gets an easy look. Raise your hand if these things seem like Evan Turner's signature moves.|
