Click for full story. With 11:16 left in the fourth quarter the Miami Heat were leading 68-61. Donyell Marshall was subbed in for Theo Ratliff. From that point on, Donyell outscored the Heat 10-9 all by himself. This win was 100% Donyell, a guy who had played 2 minutes in the past 11 games, total.

Click for full story. It was an emotional night at the Spectrum, from beginning to end. The Sixers seemed to feed off an amazing crowd. The Bulls seemed to draw on the ghosts of Bulls teams past. It went back and forth, but the right team was able to pull it out in dramatic fashion at the end, and thank whoever you feel like thanking for that. I couldn't have taken another buzzer-beater loss on this night.

Click for full story. Well, the Sixers finally got a win without raising my blood pressure to dangerous levels. Toronto never threatened after the Sixers punished them in the second quarter. They did cut the lead to nine in the fourth, but the offensive star of the game, Thad Young, put them back in line quickly. After the jump we'll check out Coach DiLeo's rotations, in detail, and talk about why this wasn't a 40-point win (which it really should've been).

Click for full story. I've had some time to let this one percolate in my mind and now I think I can write about it. First of all, give credit where credit is due. The Thunder played an excellent, excellent defensive game tonight. Missing their star and arguably their second-best player they used a simple defensive scheme to embarrass a "playoff" team that desperately needed a win. After the jump I have a few words for the Sixers, one in particular.

Click for full story. Let's say the karmic basketball gods gave the Sixers this one in return for the Devin Harris game and move on. If not for the monster run the team put together late in the fourth quarter, this game would've been a loss, a tragic, back-breaking loss. I'm still trying to figure out how the Sixers allowed Memphis to shoot 56.4% from the floor. I'm trying to figure out how Marc Gasol and Mike Conley both went off for career highs. I watched every second, and I really can't answer either question. After the jump we'll take a quick look at this close win.

Click for full story. I'm going to try to avoid sounding like a broken record tonight. It's going to be a challenge, because this team's poor performances follow such a pattern, but I'll give it a shot. First, let's focus on the positive. Andre Iguodala and Andre Miller did everything you can ask of your best players, and then some. They deserved better than a 98-91 loss to the Hornets. We'll get to the rest of the team after the jump.

Click for full story. After watching the fourth quarter of tonight's game, I was at a loss for words. Mike sent me his first-person report, I gave it a quick read, and I was somewhat comforted that I wasn't alone in being disgusted by this loss. After the jump we'll check out my game notes, place some blame and maybe try to move on.

Click for full story. The Sixers used a monstrous first quarter and an excellent final two minutes to hold off the Knicks for a rare four-game sweep. The second, third and most of the fourth wasn't pretty to watch, but the W is all that matters at this point. After the jump we'll take a look at how the Sixers did at what I pointed out as a key to the game earlier today.

Click for full story. After four consecutive losses, the Sixers came out tonight to make a statement and prove everyone wrong. Unfortunately, they weren't trying to prove the point we were hoping. Instead, they were bound and determined to show that you can suck from the foul line and still win a game. Mission accomplished.

Click for full story. That was the view I had of the three refs huddled around the video monitor for 2:30, deciding the Sixers' fate. I put myself through it when I got home, I watched the replay, and they made the right call from the replay, the shot was off in time, just in time. The problem is, there shouldn't have been any time left on the clock.

Click for full story. You aren't going to win many games shooting under 40% as a team. It just isn't going to happen. The fact that the Sixers had a three-point lead with 2:40 left to go means this is a game they should've won, but from that point on the Sixers would hit only 1 of 6 shots while the Heat would score on every possession but one. After the jump we'll talk about the shooting, substitution patterns and defense, or lack thereof.

Click for full story. Though the third quarter saw the Nuggets run all over the Sixers, it was the first that left me steaming. Yes, the first quarter which saw the Sixers outscore Denver 25-13. If not for 5 blown easy opportunities, Philly would've been up 20 early. If not for ice cold shooting, they could've put this game away early. The third was about a run, an injury, foul trouble and Chauncey. Those things happen, you live with them, you overcome them. The mistakes we saw in the first, though. They linger. They turn into losses.

Click for full story. 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.

Click for full story. In the final 2:14, Andre Iguodala put the Sixers on his back. He scored 9 points and absolutely locked down O.J. Mayo on the most-important defensive possession of the game. This was a legitimate superstar finish to the game for number nine.

Click for full story. I haven't seen enough of the Suns to form an opinion of Terry Porter as a coach, but if tonight's blowout is any indication, he's got some work to do.
