Click for full story. David vs. Goliath. I'm sure that's the last time you'll hear that phrase in relation to this series. This post will kick off our preview series. We'll go position-by-position, then talk about the head coach before my prediction lands some time on Saturday morning in advance of game one. Keep reading for the PG battle.

Click for full story. Lou Williams is definitely out for the next five games, possibly longer. Yesterday, we talked about how his minutes might be redistributed, we talked about Evan Turner's opportunity, we talked about Antonio Daniels being signed, we talked about what the team would be missing in Lou's absence. What we didn't look at is the possible positives of life without Lou.

Click for full story. Lou's MRI confirmed a strain of his right hamstring on Sunday. There is no definitive return date, it looks like they're going to reevaluate the injury frequently before committing to a timetable. At this point, there's no rush. Get him 100% fully healthy by the time the playoffs start, that's got to be the only priority. In the mean time, the team has five games left and they need to figure out how to fill Lou's spot.

Click for full story. Andres Nocioni has re-entered the perimeter rotation as part of Doug Collins' effort to sort out the minute distribution among six players: Jrue Holiday, Jodie Meeks, Andre Iguodala, Lou Williams, Evan Turner and Nocioni. Let's take a close look at how these guys have performed, in combinations, then I'll try to come up with my ideal rotation at the one, two and three.

Click for full story. No Andre Iguodala. That pretty much told the story tonight. The depleted Sixers showed a lot of heart in coming back multiple times, but Portland was just too much for Philly on the last night of their 5-game road trip and the second night of a back-to-back.

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.

Click for full story. When all was said and done, I'm sure most of the Nets fans in attendance at the Prudential Center wish they would've left when Avery Johnson did. 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. 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. Either the Sixers are beginning to figure this whole close game thing out, or the law of averages is doing its work. Either way, the Sixers picked up another close win over a bad team and somehow claimed a stranglehold on the coveted #7 seed in the Eastern Conference (by percentage points over Indy).

Click for full story. Good for the Sixers for finally pulling out a close game. Seriously, I'm happy for them. If you want to be honest about things, though, this was a garbage win. They played absolutely miserable defense against a terrible offensive team. They went with the same terrible offense down the stretch and they got bailed out by a superb defensive play by Andre Iguodala, and a rare stroke of luck when Early Boykins clanked a corner three that would've cost them the game. This really isn't something to be celebrated.

Click for full story. In the first of this series, I looked at the first six seasons of Louis Williams and Allen Iverson (and missed a few things regarding rule changes) and laid out my case for why I think Louis Williams is Allen Iverson light in that he can score but doesn't bring the other factors (on either end of the court) that Allen Iverson did. Today, I want to lay out the evidence (though incomplete, I realize) as to why Louis Williams isn't a point guard and then explain how I think the Sixers should (and shouldn't) use him.

Click for full story. Paulao Prestis, Nick Calathes, Goran Dragic, Jared Jordan, Alexander Johnson, Bernard Robinson, Matt Bonner, Sam Clancy, Sean Lampley, and Jabari Smith. What do these 10 names have in common? They are players who were picked 45th, 5 years before and 5 years after the 2005 draft.

Click for full story. If this was a potential playoff season for the Sixers, this is the type of game I'd look back on when they fell one game short. I'm not sure snake-bit is a strong enough adjective to describe these players, this roster, this franchise. Cursed? Would that be more apt? A heavily-contested Cartier Martin three with 0.4 seconds left in regulation to send it to overtime. Unbelievable.

Click for full story. Indiana is pretty much on the same level as the Sixers. Jrue + Turner + Iguodala is roughly equal to Granger, Hibbert and Collison in terms of the foundation of a team. Neither team has much beyond that. Indy has more veteran scrubs while the Sixers have a bunch of players with some sort of potential (who are mostly scrubs). This was pretty much a game of equals. It didn't look like it on the floor in the second half.

Click for full story. This win had it all. By that, I mean it was both meaningless and hollow. A preseason game against a glorified Summer League roster which featured a 26-point swing en route to an eventual 11-point win. Doug Collins lost his cool on the bench, Marreese Speights and Nate Robinson swapped techs, Jrue Holiday fouled out, Evan Turner and Andre Iguodala disappeared and the starting bigs played the smallest game you could ever imagine. Your Philadelphia 76ers, folks.
