Click for full story. Don't look at this game as a golden opportunity. The Sixers come in down 3-2 in a best-of-seven series. This game is not an opportunity, it's a must-win. Odds are, the Sixers will lose this series. It's going to take nothing short of maximum effort to make sure the season doesn't end tonight. Thoughts, keys and in-game discussion after the jump.

Click for full story. With Dwight Howard serving a one-game suspension tonight, you'd think both the Magic and the Sixers would have to make adjustments to their game plans. After the jump we'll take a look at what the Polish Hammer means to the overall team keys.

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. After playing their worst game of the series in a killer game 5 loss, the fate of the Sixers season will rest in the hands of the man pictured above for the next 24 hours or so. Dwight Howard should be suspended for game six. The league has a clear history on things like this. He intentionally elbowed Sam Dalembert in the face, it was not in the heat of action. It was a cheap shot and he should be sitting out game 6. We all remember what happened in the Suns/Spurs series a couple of years back, the league made it very clear that exceptions are not made in the playoffs. No we have to wait to see if they follow the same credo in this situation.

Click for full story. "We got home court again, and we're going to have some fun at home." That's what Hedo had to say about tonight's game 5. Call me crazy, but I think Andre Iguodala has something other than "fun" in mind for Hedo. Thoughts, keys and the in-game discussion after the jump.

Click for full story. For most of the game on Sunday, the Orlando Magic sent a hard double at Andre Iguodala whenever a screen was set for him on the perimeter. It was predictable, it was sometimes effective and it was also the reason they so easily tied the game up at 81. They drew up a perfect play to exploit the double, and I'd like to talk about some other things this particular defensive strategy could open up for the Sixers.

Click for full story. It's really a shame that this series is being relegated to obscurity by the powers that be in the mainstream media and the league itself. Honestly, when you look around there are two first-round series completely up for grabs at this point, the Sixers/Magic and Boston/Chicago. After the jump, I want to talk about the psychological edge and who could possibly hold it after four tough games.

Click for full story. Just a few random thoughts about the first 4 games. One, how about Andre Miller covering ground, elevating and getting a hand on Courtney Lee's three-point attempt with 1:05 left in the fourth last night. Orlando did everything right on that play, and 90% of the time, that's an absolutely clean look. No one wanted that win more last night than Miller.

Click for full story. This series could be over. The Sixers could have swept. At the same time, Orlando could've swept. Instead, we're tied 2-2 and even though the Magic have stolen home court advantage back, this series is far from decided.

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. This game should not have been decided by two points. The free throw shooting was atrocious in the fourth quarter, and the Sixers should've put Orlando out of its misery much, much earlier. Still, a win is a win. And a win in the playoffs is gold, especially in a swing game. Thoughts on game three after the jump.
