|It's been a long time since the Sixers were .500, and a long time coming for this surging team. Getting here wasn't the goal, though, it's just one step. Spend your Saturday relishing the fact that tonight's drubbing of the unraveling Pistons was the Sixers 12th win in their past 16 games. They're officially the hottest team in the league.|

|I hate to put a loss on one player, and I'm really not going to do it tonight, but come on. Lou Williams is an 82% shooter from the line. If he hits one of two with 6 seconds left on the clock, none of us are looking for the nearest bridge with an eye toward taking a leap.|
|Believe it or not, I'm mustering some excitement for game 82 of this putrid season which seemed like it would never end. The Sixers are in Orlando to face the Magic, who do still have a little something to play for. The Sixers game is only the beginning of the drama, though. Big picture plus game thread after the jump.|

|Philadelphia, where losing streaks go to die. This was a gloriously pitiful defeat. One for the ages, really. Hope is still alive for better lottery odds, Eddie Jordan is a game closer to early retirement, all the Dalembert haters out there got an up close look at what this team would look like with Jason Smith and Marreese Speights up front. A 21-point loss to Detroit at home. Just what the doctor ordered.|
|The Sixers have been taking on water all season. They came into the year with expectations that were probably a bit too high, but a there was some hope they could overcome the loss of Andre Miller with the return of Elton Brand and the continued improvement of their young core. The Pistons, on the other hand, went down like the Titanic. Preview and game thread after the jump.|
Latest comment: from BrianNice. Big win for the Knicks over the Celts. Sacto lost, though....
|We may have seen a breakthrough tonight for the Sixers. Their formula for winning may have just materialized right in front of our eyes. It's so simple. Build up a 26-point lead in the first half against one of the worst teams in the league, then it won't matter if you allow 64 points after the break, you'll still be able to hold on...barely.|
