Click for full story. After every crushing loss, I find myself asking "Why put yourself through this?" Games like this are the answer. The Sixers held the Spurs to 25 points in the second half tonight, and even though they couldn't throw the ball in the ocean for long stretches, their defensive intensity never wavered. They took every punch the Spurs threw, got up and punched back. Easily the best win of the season.

Click for full story. 20-year-old players are going to have ups and downs. That's just a fact of life. When you watch them play, the ups give you hope, the downs make you wonder if it was false. You spend time trying to figure out if he'll ever consistently play to the ups, if the downs are more indicative of the play we'll see, or if he'll fall somewhere in the middle. If things were only that simple with Jrue, I'd feel a whole lot better.

Click for full story. Keeping track of who was initiating the offense tonight was an eye-opener for me. My only regret is that I don't have a before to compare to this after. Doug Collins set the tone by declaring Andre Iguodala would shoulder more of the playmaking load as a point forward, let's see what happened in the road win vs. New Jersey.

The Sixers used a relentless attack on both ends of the floor to put the Nets' three-game home win streak to bed, 106-92 was the final. Jrue Holiday notched the first triple-double of his career, in the first game of the Iguodala-as-point-forward initiative.

Click for full story. First of all, Kudos to Tom Moore for loads of video yesterday, covering this shift (or change) in offensive philosophy from every angle (links to the videos to follow). Now, the news of the moment for the Sixers is an apparent shift to give Andre Iguodala a more active role in initiating the offense. If nothing else, this will give us something to track over the next couple of games.

Click for full story. Every time I think I've seen the Sixers give away a game in the most gut-wrenching manner, they one up themselves. Not one, but two four-point plays in the closing seconds of the game and overtime. More Lou isolations than you can shake a stick at. Jrue Holiday scores 8 points in the fourth, doesn't get a single shot in the final 6:35 of the game, left to stand in the corner. Talk about this game if you can, I need some time to cool off.

Click for full story. Lots of discussion about Jrue Holiday recently, so I thought I'd undertake a project I've wanted to do for a while. In the preseason, Doug Collins famously said that Jrue would one day be a top-5 point guard in the NBA. That hasn't exactly come true yet, though we've seen flashes. But where exactly does Jrue rank among his peers (NBA starting point guards)?

Click for full story. On the precipice of the midway point of the 2010-2011 NBA season, let's take a step back. Forget about the playoffs. Forget about the rotations. Forget about everything and strip this team down to what's worthwhile, what's superfluous and what's meaningless. What direction should Rod Thorn take going forward? What should his plan be?

Click for full story. With the memory of a 45-point drubbing burned into their minds, the Sixers took the court tonight shorthanded, but determined to send a message. It took 48 minutes of non-stop energy, but they got the job done. Without Andre Iguodala, Jrue Holiday and Jodie Meeks caught fire in the third while Elton Brand and Thad Young proved too much for Chicago on the defensive end. What was probably the best quarter of basketball this team has played in over year was enough to power them to their 15th win of the season.

Click for full story. If you don't believe in moral victories, well, then I guess you didn't just see an unbelievable effort from an undermanned Sixers squad. It sounds corny, but I just feel proud of the guys after that game. They were one shot away from taking down the Lakers, in LA, and they really had five or six chances to hit it. Anyway, my wrap will be up tomorrow, in the meantime I've got a couple of food-for-thought questions to hold you over.

Click for full story. Andre Iguodala missed his second consecutive game but his replacements more than picked up the slack against a defensively disinterested Phoenix Suns squad. About halfway through the game, I realized Vince Carter will be a perfect fit for the Suns. He's only 50% more disinterested than the entire franchise. This game may just have been Evan Turner's coming out party, and it was definitely fun to watch.

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. Doug's excited, how about you? The Sixers picked up their 10th win on January 3rd last season, in their 33rd game, on the last day of the Ice Capades trip. This year, they'll have at least ten in their back pocket before they even pack their bags. Granted, they have 15 losses dragging them down, but we're measuring progress on a curve here. Still, it was great to see the Sixers bounce back for a dominant second half on the second night of a back-to-back to put the hapless Clippers away.
