Click for full story. Through Iguodala's injuries, Jrue's ups and downs, Hawes' futility and Turner's disappointments, the Sixers had one constant this season to rely on. Mr. Philly Max himself, Elton Brand. The big man is up in our prediction vs. performance series today.

Click for full story. Maybe this is what all that heartache set them up for. Maybe failing to close game after game after game in the regular season gave them the fortitude to never say die when the death would've been literal. Maybe it was running without a timeout, letting the players make their own luck on the floor. Whatever did it, this was easily the sweetest win of the year. A tremendous comeback topped with clutch play from the team's youngest players.

Click for full story. Great crowd, great energy, great game plan. The Sixers played about as well as they possibly could have tonight against the Miami Heat, and the result was a 6-point loss in front of packed house. Nothing to be ashamed of as a Sixers player, or a Sixers fan, for that matter.

Click for full story. Elton Brand vs. Chris Bosh may just be the defining matchup of this series. It could easily swing either way, unfortunately for the Sixers, they can't settle for a wash at PF, they need a big. Luckily for the Sixers, Brand has big time help coming from the bench at PF.

Click for full story. There was absolutely nothing pretty about this game. The Sixers played a depleted, bad team, they let them hang around. They almost let them come back and win it. Almost is the key, though. They came out on top. When you look back at the team's overall record, this one counts just as much as the win in Chicago. It's only when you grade a game on the hope it gives you that this one will be found wanting.

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 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. 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.

Click for full story. A golden opportunity to start the trip 3-2 soured a couple hours prior to the tip for the Sixers when word spread that Andre Iguodala wouldn't be available for the game. At that point, you knew it was going to be a long night. And it was.

Click for full story. Well, another chapter of the Jrue Holiday (+9) vs. Ty Lawson (-13) debate has been written, this time with Jrue pushing the Sixers past the undermanned Nuggets on the road. Holiday took full advantage of Lawson's porous defense and blanketed the diminutive backup on the other end to fuel a huge fourth quarter for the Sixers. They finally won a close one.

Click for full story. So the Sixers lose a game on the road, on the second night of a back-to-back, to the 23-4 Celtics, who are 13-1 at home, when the Celtics have several days of rest, by four points and the sky is still falling? Andre Iguodala turns Paul Pierce into a sniveling mess with his lockdown defense, and this game somehow personifies how bad Iguodala is? Yeah, I love being a Sixers fan.

Click for full story. One down, seven to go. The Sixers took care of the intentionally depleted Orlando Magic on Saturday night in convincing style. Dwight Howard shockingly painless 20/20 game just wasn't enough to overcome the Sixers staunch defense. Quite a way to kick off the Ice Capades trip.

Click for full story. It's taken me more than 24 hours to gain enough perspective on this game to put my thoughts down. It took about 12 for me to separate the result from the game, and specifically the effort. Ultimately, we should be proud of what we saw from the Sixers on the court against Boston. They did everything we could've reasonably expected, and more. They followed the script almost exactly, matching Boston blow-for-blow throughout the night, and even delivering what could've, would've and should've been the knockout blow in the closing seconds. Unfortunately, the last team with the ball won.

Click for full story. Six up, fourteen down. Sixty-two left to be played. Doug Collins has the Sixers overachieving, as far as I'm concerned. The only question is whether they can keep it up and whether he'll be able to figure out how to best utilize Evan Turner, before this terrible start can gain enough momentum to submarine his entire rookie campaign. Let's take a look back over the first twenty: stats, POTG leader board and individual player report cards.

Click for full story. The indignity of losing to this Toronto Raptors team is almost too much to bear. Shooting 36.8% from the floor against the 27th-ranked team in defensive efficiency is shameful. Any thought of how this team doesn't miss Andre Iguodala should be wiped away by this point. Without him, they just might be the worst team in the league. The problem: I'm not sure how far from the bottom they are even with him.
