|I'm at a loss after the Sixers embarrassing 112-90 loss to a depleted Jazz team in Philly tonight. Completely at a loss. All I have right now are questions, I'm hoping you guys can help me find the answers after the jump.|
|The good news first: Deron Williams will not be available for the Jazz tonight. And now the bad news: Without Williams the Jazz officially go from a formidable opponent, if slightly weakened, who will bring out the best in the Sixers, to a perfect opportunity for the Sixers to underwhelm against a shaky squad.|

|All the Sixers need to accomplish to make the opening 10 games of their schedule a success in the win/loss column, if not in our minds, is to win one game in the upcoming back-to-back. Sounds simple, but the two PGs pictured above and circumstances are stacked against them. More after the jump.|
|The more bad basketball this team plays, the closer they come to a change. That's what we have to keep telling ourselves at this point. The change could be a permanent coach, it could be a trade, it could be a drastic reshuffling of the rotation. Losses like this one to Utah really make you hope it comes sooner rather than later.|
|Kate Fagan made that bold statement in her post on tonight's game in Utah, and I'm going to agree. The Jazz will be without Carlos Boozer and Paul Milsap. Mehmet Okur may also be out of the lineup. Utah will be extremely thin in the front court, and their best player, Deron Williams, has been hampered by injuries all season, and hasn't really played like Deron Williams when he's been on the floor.|

|OK, I'm running out of excuses. As the Sixers walked off the court to a chorus of boos I was left thinking, "Can you really blame the fans?" I can't, not tonight.I'm going to get all of the finger pointing...|
|First, check out this story from Kate Fagen. This passage is music to my ears: When the 76ers walked onto their practice court on Sunday morning, they had to laugh. On 10 spots on the hardwood - five on each...|
|The Utah Jazz and Jerry Sloan are going to be very happy they traded for Kyle Korver. Tonight's game is a perfect example of what they can expect from him. Instant offense off the bench, automatic from the free throw...|
|With the 76ers heading into Utah to take on the Jazz tonight, and Kyle Korver a new addition to the Jazz roster, evil genius Jerry Sloan has called his team in for an early meeting. The goal: To pick Korver's...|
|Ed Stefanski has made his first deal as the Sixers' GM and I'm left with mixed feelings about it. The Sixers sent Kyle Korver to the Utah Jazz for a first-round draft pick and the disgruntled Gordan Giricek. I suppose...|
|Tonight's 106-95 loss the Jazz was defined, and decided by three runs. The first run, by the Jazz, came to open the first quarter when they opened up 13-2. The second run followed right on the heels of the first,...|
