|The Sixers came out with bad intentions at the Conseco Fieldhouse tonight, then spent the rest of the game toying with the Pacers emotions before finally putting them to sleep with a late burst to secure the double-digit road win. Andre Iguodala reminded Danny Granger why he was stapled to the bench for Team USA this summer en route to another double-double.|
|A slow start in the first followed by a bench explosion to push the lead to 18 points, then a miserable third quarter before Collins found the right combo. Jrue, Meeks, Turner, Iguodala and Thad played all but two seconds of the final 10 minutes in the 4th and OT. The exclamation point on the win came on Andre Iguodala's 10th assist with 17 seconds left.|
|It wasn't as demonstrative as I would've liked, but I'll take it. Good to see a couple guys stiffen when Minnesota came back to tie it and say, "No way we're losing this game." The non-pathetic triple-double is your player of the game.|
|Well, something had to give at the WFC tonight, and it wound up being the Sixers' modest four-game streak. Jason Terry was unconscious and got whatever he wanted unless Andre Iguodala was guarding him. Unfortunately, Iguodala only covered him for a couple of minutes.|
|The Sixers did everything they could in the first and fourth quarters to insure they wouldn't capture that elusive four-game win streak, but when push came to shove, Thad Young decided to shove. You certainly can't commend them for the game they played, but pulling out the road W was huge and as I write, the Sixers are only a half game out of the #6 seed.|
|It's been a long time since the Sixers were .500, and a long time coming for this surging team. Getting here wasn't the goal, though, it's just one step. Spend your Saturday relishing the fact that tonight's drubbing of the unraveling Pistons was the Sixers 12th win in their past 16 games. They're officially the hottest team in the league.|

|It took the Sixers 12 minutes to wake up from their All Star break slumber, then they methodically put the Washington Wizards to bed. The 117-94 final score makes the game look closer than it was. The Sixers absolutely dominated Washington in a demonstrative opener to the final 26 games.|
Latest comment: from JasonCurling is such an underrated sport. Best winter olympic....
|You earned it. Another big bounce-back win for the Sixers, this time over the Houston Rockets, brings the nominal first half of the season to a close. The Sixers matched their win total from the entire 2009-2010 season by the All Star break. Somewhere, Eddie Jordan just shed a tear (while licking his braces).|

|Beginning, middle, end. Three parts to a basketball game. Terrible, excellent, terrible. How the Sixers performed in each. 26-29, three games under .500. Where the Sixers are left after another disappointing loss to the red-hot Memphis Grizzlies. The good news: They've got a chance to right the ship tomorrow night heading into the All Star break.|
Latest comment: from GoSixersAnd possibly an extra home game (game six) in the first round...
|Second night of a back-to-back, fourth game in five nights, 1,200 miles of travel in the dead of night to face a bad team. I'd say a 20-point victory is something to be proud of. The Sixers used a balanced attack, putting seven players in double figures (and Evan Turner at 9 points), and putting the Timberwolves to sleep in the process.|
|After every crushing loss, I find myself asking "Why put yourself through this?" Games like this are the answer. The Sixers held the Spurs to 25 points in the second half tonight, and even though they couldn't throw the ball in the ocean for long stretches, their defensive intensity never wavered. They took every punch the Spurs threw, got up and punched back. Easily the best win of the season.|
|The Sixers opened strong, then fell flat, then rallied before ultimately coming up just short (thanks to a few key errors in the final minute). Not an altogether unfamiliar story, unfortunately. Breaking this one down is actually pretty simple.|
Latest comment: from Tom MooreSixers to face Spurs team that just keeps winning: http://ow.ly/3Uq0i...
|Al Horford was a "Did Not Play" thanks to a brutal flagrant foul from Blake Griffin a couple nights ago. Joe Johnson was a "May As Well Not Have Played" thanks to Andre Iguodala's super-human defense. The Sixers used both of those facts to their advantage en route to an absolute thrashing of the Atlanta Hawks, on the road.|
Latest comment: from eddies' heady'sDid you realize that almost everything you wrote was going to come true later tonight? Dag.......
|Well, it was sort of a fun game to attend. The Sixers made about 20 different runs to get back into this game, and it seemed like each one was killed by a corner three by the Knicks. When they weren't hitting threes, Amare Stoudemire was hitting everything he threw toward the rim. In the end, it was a split home-and-home and a lost opportunity.|
|In the first of four straight games against the teams occupying the three playoff spots immediately above them, the Sixers rode their "overpaid" elder statesmen to a thrilling 100-99 win in front of a somewhat hostile home crowd at the WFC. Elton Brand and Andre Iguodala played easily their best game as teammates and led the team to a furious fourth-quarter comeback that they didn't quite let slip away.|
