|As the static summer grinds on in Philadelphia, rumors of another Eastern Conference playoff team possibly making drastic changes are beginning to surface. We'll take a look after the jump.|

|I have good news and bad news. Bad first, the Heat used a 30-point fourth quarter in Charlotte to put the Bobcats away, picking up a half game on the Sixers in the process. The good, well, don't look now but the Sixers are only 2 games behind the Hawks in the loss column after the Celts took care of Atlanta.|
|Well, Miami continues to do its part. They coughed up a fourth quarter lead at home to Orlando tonight. The Sixers again control their own destiny. Miami still holds a 1-game lead, but they're even in the loss column. None of the other important teams played tonight. Possibly the biggest development was Orlando continuing to push for the number two seed. Given the choice between Boston and Orlando in the first round, who do you want?|
|Today at 1pm the Heat will play he Pistons, at Detroit. It's pretty simple, if the Pistons win, they're percentage points behind the Sixers for the #6 seed and the Sixers are even with the Heat in the loss column for the #5 seed. If Miami wins, the Sixers are a full game up on the Pistons, but 2 behind Miami for the #5 seed. Who are you rooting for, and why?|
Latest comment: from Real and SpeightacularIt was a foul, plain as day. Heinous non-call....
|It's going to be a sprint to the finish for three Eastern Conference teams. Two games in the loss column separates the Heat, Sixers and Pistons from the coveted #5 seed. After the jump, we'll take a look at the remaining schedules for each team, and try to piece together what needs to happen for the Sixers to beat out Miami and Detroit.|
|With 11:16 left in the fourth quarter the Miami Heat were leading 68-61. Donyell Marshall was subbed in for Theo Ratliff. From that point on, Donyell outscored the Heat 10-9 all by himself. This win was 100% Donyell, a guy who had played 2 minutes in the past 11 games, total.|
|I'm going to let you guys in on a little secret, Miami is not really a very good team. You'd never know it from the media attention they get, but statistically speaking, they really aren't better than the Sixers. In fact, the teams are pretty even. Miami holds a two-game lead over the Sixers in the loss column, today the Sixers have to cut that to 1.|
|You aren't going to win many games shooting under 40% as a team. It just isn't going to happen. The fact that the Sixers had a three-point lead with 2:40 left to go means this is a game they should've won, but from that point on the Sixers would hit only 1 of 6 shots while the Heat would score on every possession but one. After the jump we'll talk about the shooting, substitution patterns and defense, or lack thereof.|
|It's a Saturday matinee in Miami. Sixers vs. Heat for the right to hold the #5 seed in the East. After the jump we'll take a quick look at the stats, talk briefly about Andre Miller's status and of course have our in-game discussion.|
Latest comment: from Mikedileo's coaching has definitely been more than questionable in all of these losses...
|I guess I owe Miami an apology. If anyone looked like a bad team tonight, it wasn't them. Our beloved Philadelphia 76ers pulled off their best Washington Generals impression and managed to make a bad night even worse for yours...|
|This game shouldn't have gone to overtime, I'll get into that in a second, but it did, and you know what? A win is a win. 101-96 over Miami counts just as much as 124-84 over the Knicks. It wasn't...|
