|Fast Edward Jordan seems to have gotten the memo. Whether he realizes he's on the fast track to a golden parachute or he's decided he's going to take his frustrations out on the players he blames for his epic failure in what will hopefully be his last NBA coaching job is immaterial. The end result is the same, he's got the Sixers player their worst basketball exactly when they need to be losing games.|
Latest comment: from Tom MooreNo guarantee LeBron will play, though the Cavs are better without him than the Pacers without Granger....
|The difference between the 9th-worst record in the league and the 4th-worst record in the league is a mere 3 games in the win column. Tonight's game is the first of four games that could easily be wins for the Sixers.If a high lottery pick is the goal, they absolutely must lose them.|
Latest comment: from JohnEMageeOn the same day it leaks that rat boy is already looking for another job now that the bobcats have been sold...
|Collectively, the Sixers did three things well tonight. They didn't turn the ball over, they got to the foul line and they worked the offensive glass. Every other area of the game was an abject failure. Individually, Thad Young and Reggie Evans had very good games, Iguodala had a pretty final line and dominated for a couple of stretches and everyone else was horrible. That sounds like a pretty solid recipe for losing to a 21-33 team.|
Latest comment: from BrianThey're 1-1 against those teams recently, and they lost on a last-second shot to the Celts....
|In my preview of the second half, I had tonight's game against the Pacers as a loss. Actually, I had the Sixers sputtering out of the gates after the All Star Break, this being the first of a string of three consecutive losses. After the jump we'll take a look at how the Sixers can avoid this fate and keep momentum on their side as they push for the #4 seed in the East.|
|The Sixers played an inferior team at the Wach tonight under tough circumstances. They lost Elton Brand for the season earlier in the day, they were coming off a buzzer-beater loss to the Celtics and an epic offensive collapse to the Nets. To say they needed a win would be a gross understatement. Their starters showed up ready to dominate. Their bench did not. Ultimately, Tony DiLeo put the guys who really wanted it on the court when it mattered most and they brought it home.|
Latest comment: from BrianYeah? He openly supports Willie, huh?...
|After two gut-wrenching losses in a row, the Sixers can either bury their heads in the sand or they can come out against an inferior team tonight and show what they're made of. After the jump we'll take a quick look at the stats, talk about match-ups and of course, the in-game discussion.|
Latest comment: from BrianYou know Zumoff was screaming "Among the giants," and probably "lunchpailing" as well. Huge boards....
|If you want to know why the Sixers lost this game, I can't really tell you. I can tell you a couple of things that certainly didn't help. Getting out-scored by 18 points from the three point line, for example, probably wasn't helpful. 2 technical fouls, also not a very good idea in a game you lose by 1 point. Absolutely no clue what to do on offense in the half-court, again, potentially part of the problem.|
|Call it luck, call it karma, call it whatever you like. If the reports are true, the Sixers are catching a huge break tonight. Danny Granger, Troy Murphy and Marquis Daniels won't make the flight to Philly.|
|I'm not going to spend a ton of time talking about the first quarter when the Sixers fell behind 38-13. The reasons for the atrocious start were very simple. They turned the ball over way too much, they settled for...|
|Usually, when the Sixers play a team coached by Jim O'Brien I have to mentally prepare myself for a barrage of threes and a lopsided loss. Usually, his teams shoot way too may deep balls and usually an inordinate...|
Latest comment: from BryonTray i'm in Henderson. I agree. Definite confidence booster....
|I have three things to say about what happened on the court tonight, then I'm going to completely erase the memory from my mind and not think about the Sixers again until the tip off tomorrow night at 7pm.Rodney Carney...|
|The Sixers have four games left. Four. Two wins and they'll secure their first winning season in the past three years. Four wins and they'll secure at least the number five seed. One win and they'll guarantee a .500 record....|
|It's getting pretty redundant to say the Sixers lost because they (a) couldn't defend the three, (b) couldn't shoot the three and (c) couldn't hit their free throws. Today's 110-103 loss to the Pacers can be chalked up to those...|
|The game isn't officially over as I start writing this, but I want to get my recap done as quickly as possible so I can erase this game from my memory.The Sixers and Pacers came out on fire, scoring at...|
