Click for full story. The season is over, but no one who wore the Sixers uniform tonight has anything to be ashamed of. That was one of the most inspiring efforts I've ever seen on a basketball court. I'm proud to be a Sixers fan and I can't wait until next year.

Click for full story. Game five, on the road against a team with superior talent and lofty goals. Down 3-1 in a best-of-seven series. This is the game where the cream usually will rise to the top. This is the game where the clearly superior team will typically put its foot down and end the series emphatically. The Bulls did it last night against the Pacers. Will the Heat be able to do the same tonight against the Sixers?

Click for full story. Heading into this series, it was clear the Sixers had a big advantage in their bench. Miami has a couple of specialists who play a role and little else. The Sixers have a ton of scoring firepower coming off their bench, even more now that Evan Turner has exerted himself. Let's take a quick look at how each bench has fared through four games, and talk a bit about what to expect in game five.

Click for full story. Well, I didn't expect it, but I was delighted to be able to compile differential production (DP) stats for one more Sixer win this year, Sunday's Game 4 thriller.  The full explanation for DP can be found here.  DP measures which players made individual contributions to a team's offensive and defensive ratings for a game.  For this game, the Sixers' team offensive DP (ODP) was -2 (86 points in 88 possessions), and their team defensive DP (DDP) was +5 (82 points allowed in 87 possessions).  Read on for the individual breakdown.

Click for full story. There's nothing quite like playoff NBA basketball. After a couple of games, the familiarity between the two teams breeds unbelievable contempt. Team strengths are neutralized by adjustments, then coaches need to rethink everything to take advantage of the holes opened by those adjustments. It's truly a chess match. Let's take a look at a couple of key adjustments, and how they've been countered through the first four games.

Click for full story. Maybe this is what all that heartache set them up for. Maybe failing to close game after game after game in the regular season gave them the fortitude to never say die when the death would've been literal. Maybe it was running without a timeout, letting the players make their own luck on the floor. Whatever did it, this was easily the sweetest win of the year. A tremendous comeback topped with clutch play from the team's youngest players.

Click for full story. For the first time in 2011, and possibly the last time in the 2010-11 season, I took some time to compile differential production (DP) stats for a Sixers game, Game 3 of the playoff series with the Heat. The full explanation for DP can be found here. DP measures which players made individual contributions to a team's offensive and defensive ratings for a game. For this game, the Sixers' team offensive DP (ODP) was +10 (94 points in 84 possessions), and their team defensive DP (DDP) was -17 (100 points in 83 possessions). Read on for the breakdown.

Click for full story. The question isn't really whether the Sixers will show the same resolve coming back from a disheartening loss tonight against the Heat as they did in similar situations during the regular season. The question is whether if they do, will it be enough to take down the Heat?

Click for full story. Monday night's loss to the Heat was tough to take. The Sixers looked thoroughly outclassed on the floor. They looked like they have no chance. They looked worse than they've looked at any point this season save for the Chicago loss earlier in the year. We've spent the day lamenting the sad state of basketball affairs in Philly, now it's time to leave all the garbage behind.

Click for full story. Game ones are about advanced scouting, players acclimating themselves to the heightened pressure of the playoff environment and prodding your opponent to see what works and what doesn't. Game twos are all about adjustments. Both teams learned a lot in game one, tonight we're going to see if they found anything they can exploit.

Click for full story. We've had some time to digest game one, and a couple of things stuck in my mind. Let's take a closer look at a few surprises from game one, and talk about how the Sixers need to adjust and maybe what they can take advantage of.
