Click for full story. The Sixers put their practice time to good use in between the Toronto loss and the Houston win. One change they made seemed designed to serve two purposes: Keeping their legs fresher and limiting the wide-open looks from three their opponents had been getting.

Click for full story. The Sixers held Derrick Rose to 18 points on 17 shots (and three free throws) last night. In the second half, Rose scored 3 points, didn't hand out a single assist and turned the ball over three times. Rich takes a close look at how Jrue Holiday's phenomenal play at the point of attack completely took away Rose's right hand while the rest of the team shut down the lane behind him.

Click for full story. Well, first off I'd like to say that it's great to have another season of hoops ahead of us, even an abbreviated/crazy/jam-packed one. Even if it's still only the preseason, it's good to see actual basketball come back and not have to talk about BRI and revenue sharing.

The Sixers got off to a very good start away from the Wells Fargo Center Friday night with a 103-78 dismantling of the Washington Wizards. Truly, the game was only made as close as it was by the Wizards backups having a very strong 4th quarter against the Sixers' bench. When the Sixers' main guys were on the floor, they played like they were still mad about the two gut-wrenching losses they suffered last year in this very same building.

Click for full story. Over the summer, Doug Collins said he wanted Andre Iguodala to be the best wing defender in the league this season. He wanted him to focus himself on shutting down the opposing team's best wing scorer. He wanted him to be on the NBA's All Defense squad, first team. Let's take a look at his resume so far this season.

Click for full story. After a handful of disappointing defensive games, the Sixers bounced back in a big way against Toronto and Milwaukee. Here's my question to kick off this glorious game day: Are they legitimately a top-ten defensive team?

Click for full story. Take a second and think about this season for a moment. Specifically, think about the Sixers' defense. Now think about last season. Think about your reactions, as a fan, when you were watching games last season. What's missing? What did you see countless times last year that rarely, if ever, happens this year?

Click for full story. Defense wins. Defend to run. The best offense is a good defense. We've heard plenty of platitudes regarding defense, some are true, some are merely motivational tools to get guys to play on the end of the floor that isn't recognized or rewarded nearly enough in terms of dollars and recognition. After the jump, we're going to spend some time looking at my favorite kind of defender, the disruptive force.

Click for full story. When we talk about the Sixers' frontcourt on the defensive end of the floor, well, it's mostly a hypothetical discussion. We're forced to choose between believing that Spencer Hawes, Jason Smith, Marreese Speights, Thad Young or some combination thereof will miraculously learn to defend in a way they've shown no propensity to in their first combined 10 years in the league and hooking our wagon to the hope that Elton Brand can turn back into the player he was before the Achilles injury. I'd say the latter is much more likely.

Click for full story. Yesterday's Pressing Questions thread was dominated by a discussion of the positive vs. negative outlook on the upcoming Sixers season. I was, and remain, in the negative camp, mainly because I don't see how the bigs can compete on the defensive end, nor on the glass. When you look at league-wide results from last season, however, it does seem as though it's possible.

Click for full story. Or are they? The Sixers defensive rating has improved over the past four games (2 wins, 2 losses), but have they really performed better? We'll take a look after the jump.

Click for full story. Bob Cooney had an interesting article on Philly.com yesterday and I'd like to talk a little bit about a few points he brought up. It was the first concrete glimpse into the Sixers' defensive scheme that I've seen and I have a few issues with it.

Click for full story. When you hear something repeated time after time after time, a little part of you starts to believe it just might be true. I've resisted the temptation when announcers like Jon Barry try to pound the following point home, "Andre Iguodala is not a number one," and I think it's time to take a look at whether or not this particular piece of propaganda is true.
