Click for full story. The morning after a devastating loss either brings hope for a new day, or constant nagging second thoughts about everything you had hoped would be true. This morning brought nothing but the latter to this fan. Advanced stats etc. from Game 1 after the jump.

Click for full story. For a team who made it one step away from the promised land, the Orlando Magic made a boatload of changes over the summer. You don't usually see this kind of turnover after a surprisingly successful run, but Orlando was bold. After the jump we'll take a look at the matchups and try to figure out if this Magic team will look anything like the team that ended the Sixers season last April.

Click for full story. With Dwight Howard and Courtney Lee sidelined for game six tomorrow night, the gut reaction of everyone is going to be to punch the Sixers' ticket to game seven back in Orlando on Saturday. That would be a very, very big mistake.

Click for full story. Orlando Sentinel beat writer George Diaz says Howard has been suspended for tomorrow night's game for elbowing Sam Dalembert in the head. No confirmation anywhere else, yet. UPDATE: It's confirmed.

Click for full story. I woke up this morning not knowing what to expect on the Dwight Howard suspension front. In the Daily Dime, John Hollinger thinks the league would gladly suspend the Polish Hammer in this situation, but probably won't suspend Howard. Henry Abbott wonders why Getty Images doesn't have a nice still shot of the elbow. JE Skeets thinks a suspension is coming. After the jump, we'll look at the video, and also the video of some other plays that drew suspensions from the league.

Click for full story. A 2-1 lead in a seven-game series is nice, but we've been here before. It feels good, but not Christmas-morning good. What would feel great? Well, being up 3-1, obviously. Keys and the in-game discussion after the jump.

Click for full story. If you're still pinching yourself at the thought of Thad's game-winner from Friday night, you aren't alone. Lucky for us, we have another game to watch tonight at 6:30. I'll be there, section 103, row 6. If you're going, let us know in the comments. We'll meet at the usual place at the half (Finnegan's, outside of section 105).

Click for full story. There are obvious trends to observe from the first three games of the Sixers/Magic first round series, and there are some more subtle as well. Given a minute to breath, I thought tonight was a good opportunity to take a look at a few advanced stats to see if we could prove out the obvious ones and surface a few of the more subtle.

Click for full story. With any luck I'll be starting my long journey down to the Wach within the hour. You guys will be on your own for the game thread, but I have the utmost confidence in you. After the jump, my keys and the in-game discussion.

Click for full story. This afternoon I decided to take a closer look at the stats from yesterday's game. I wanted to see if there was a numeric way to quantify the effectiveness of the Sixers' game plan, on both sides of the ball. After the jump, we'll dive into the results.

Click for full story. As the road team in the playoffs, your goal coming in is to take home-court advantage away from the higher seed in the first two games. Get the game back to your own stadium with the series tied 1-1 and you're in the driver's seat. So great, the Sixers have done that, time to relax now, right? Wrong.

Click for full story. At their core, the Sixers are a young team. Superficially, you'd think that quick turnarounds would be beneficial to them, considering their opponents are typically older. In this case however, the extra days off will be an advantage for the Sixers.
