Click for full story. The Sixers will play host to the struggling Los Angeles Lakers tonight at the WFC. Kobe, Dwight and Co. currently sit at a deceptive 10-14 on the year, but their point differential (+2.3) tells a different story. They're dangerous, but disorganized with a PG to run the show. The Sixers, unfortunately, may also be without their starting PG. Jrue is listed as a game-time decision.

Click for full story. There has been quite a bit of discussion on the Sixers' defensive performance vs. the Lakers.  Some of it was good (challenging of shots led to average 2-point and excellent 3-point percentages against, 16 turnovers forced), some of it was bad (all those rebounds!).  So who was responsible for what?  One way to tell is to do what I did a couple times last year, compute a reverse boxscore, by assigning all Lakers statistics to a Sixer.  In the reverse boxscore, defensive rebounds, steals, and blocks are all accumulated while the Sixers are on offense, while all other stats are accumulated while the Sixers are on defense.  When there are switches on defense, I usually assign the shot attempts/makes to the final defender, not to the initial defender (same for offensive rebounds allowed).

Click for full story. I feel kind of bad for writing a headline like that about the Sixers, because they're honestly the furthest thing from a one-man-show in the NBA today. But Lou Williams absolutely put this game away and he deserves a ton of credit for stepping up and carrying the Sixers down the stretch. This win over the Lakers was amazing on so many different levels, I don't even know where to begin. (game capsule).

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. If the Sixers win either of their next two games, this season's Ice Capades trip can be classified as nothing short of a rousing success. Tonight, the calendar will flip some time in the third quarter (on the East coast), and if the Sixers can pull off a minor miracle in Los Angeles, they'll have every right to celebrate.

Click for full story. Yep, the Lakers are better than the Sixers. They had their opportunities, but just too many missed shots and horrible, horrible nights from Jrue Holiday, Jodie Meeks and a couple others did them in in the Bon Voyage to the WFC for a couple weeks.

Click for full story. 5.5 point underdogs at home, and that line seems generous. The Sixers will take on the defending champs, the Los Angeles Lakers, at the WFC tonight at 7pm. The Sixers have won 7 of their past 9, and for the most part played inspired basketball over that stretch. It's probably going to take more than inspired basketball to take down the champs, though.

Click for full story. I suppose there's no reason to hang your head after this loss as a Sixers fan. They went into LA, gave the Lakers all they could handle until the waning moments and really put forth a solid effort the entire night. It just wasn't enough against this Lakers team (even if the Lakers appeared to be sleepwalking through the win.)

Click for full story. The Sixers will bring their four-game road trip to an end tonight at 10:30 in LA. The defending champs are pretty much cruising to the number one seed out West, though they seem to be in a dogfight with Cleveland for home court advantage throughout. The Sixers are cruising as well, I'm just having a hard time figuring out what their destination is.
