Click for full story. For the second consecutive game, the Sixers have closed out a tight contest with a relentless attack of the hoop, a chip on their shoulder and suffocating defense. Every run was answered today. Every Bulls foray into the lane met with a hard contest, foul, or both. The Sixers took care of home court advantage and hold a commanding 3-1 lead over the Bulls in this first round matchup. (game capsule)

Click for full story. The Sixers spent the first three quarters scuffling for points any way they could find them and stifling the Bulls on the other end of the floor. Unfortunately, the Bulls defense was better and the Sixers couldn't hit the jumpers the Bulls were giving them. In the fourth quarter, that all changed. They scored 28 points on 19 possessions, led by Jrue Holiday and Evan Turner, who wouldn't be denied. (game capsule)

Click for full story. The first half of tonight's game played out like many others over the last half of the season, minus Jrue Holiday's offensive explosion. The Sixers scored enough points to stay in the game, but their defense was extremely porous and not being able to get stops led to an eight-point halftime deficit. The second half, though, was reminiscent of the ball these guys played during their 20-9 start. Add it up, and you get a blowout win on the road in the playoffs. (game capsule).

Click for full story. And just like that, the entire season changes. No longer are the Sixers slumping to the lottery, but they sit 2.5 games ahead of the folding Bucks, seemingly secure in the final playoff slot in the East, a date with the Chicago Bulls written in dry-eraser on the white board! Oh, glorious day. Passionate...Intense...Proud! (game capsule) Wait, what? Two badly timed losses could knock them back into the lottery? Ah, nevermind.

Click for full story. It's not that the Sixers have collectively cashed in this season that bothers me. It's not that they look like an NBADL team out there that keeps me up at night. I can deal with bad teams. I've dealt with them in the past. There's always been a reason to watch. The thing that makes this season so unbelievably unbearable is that they had to start out so well. They had to plant that seed of false hope, only to fall to pieces in front of our eyes. I'm sure it's not the case, but when you watch them get beat up by the Magic without Dwight, you can't help but say to yourself, "They don't even care." (game capsule)

Click for full story. Two-in-a-row, huh? It's been quite some time since the Sixers have strung two wins together, and even longer since their nominal point guard had 7 assists in a game. Both strings of futility came to an end in Toronto tonight. (game capsule)

Click for full story. I'm not going to look this up because, well, I already feel like I've put too much energy into caring about this team, so let's just assume the Sixers are the first team to lose to the Wizards and the Raptors by 20 points or more. The good news, the Sixers did it in less than a week! (game capsule)

Click for full story. After a horrible first half marred by continued soft interior play and inflated jump shooting by the Bobcats, the Sixers came out in the second half and put the Bobcats in their place. It was a strange night for Doug Collins, one which I'm sure he won't look back upon fondly, but in the end it's just another demonstrative win over a bad team. (game capsule).

Click for full story. The Sixers had every opportunity to put the Bulls away early tonight, but they failed to do so. When you give a good team, at home, a second life, they're going to make you pay for it more often than not. Tonight, the Sixers handed a game to the Bulls. (game capsule).

Click for full story. Contrary to their usual pattern, the Sixers used a consistent offensive attack throughout the game and a late defensive surge to put another double-digit victory on the board over the Utah Jazz tonight. (game capsule).

Click for full story. When the Sixers play host to the Oklahoma City Thunder tonight, for two-and-a-half hours I plan on forgetting all about the previous 35 games, the remaining 30, the race for home-court advantage in the East, the team's long-term cap situation and really anything other than what's happening on the court. Specifically, what's happening with two superb matchups.

Click for full story. When a coach finds himself at the helm of a team circling the drain, sometimes he tries to mix things up. You could call it grasping at straws. You might call it pressing the panic button. Whatever you call it, Doug Collins did it tonight when he started Andres Nocioni at power forward. The result: A humongous hole in the first quarter the team could never dig themselves out of. (game capsule).

Click for full story. With no true post player, and the only legit scoring threat up front being a small, non-stretch PF, the Sixers are left to rely on their backcourt for a whole lot. On the defensive end, they have to work from the outside in. On the offensive end, not only do the smalls have to spoon-feed opportunities to the bigs, but they have to handle the bulk of the scoring as well. For the first 25 games of the season, they did just that. In the last six, they haven't even come close.

Click for full story. If you had told me the Sixers would be 10 games over .500 at any point during the 2011-2012 season back in the summer, I would've bet my life on the catalyst being Jrue making a major leap in his third season. Well, they're ten games over, so let's take a look at how much of that has to do with Jrue's development.

Click for full story. It's good to know the stretch of seven games against top-notch opponents didn't make the Sixers forget how to treat a bad team. Last night, the Sixers manhandled the Cavs and put another lopsided win on the board. (game capsule).
