Click for full story. If you're looking for excuses, it won't be hard to find one. The Sixers are coming off an emotional win. Their two best players logged 45 minutes of heavy action yesterday. Thad Young is still out. Samuel Dalembert's calf still seems to be bothering him. Andre Miller's middle finger got dinged up again late in the game. Pick one or two from that list and it could excuse a loss to the Nets today. Unfortunately, there's a battle going on and to be honest, there is absolutely no acceptable excuse in the world for being swept 4-0 by the New Jersey Nets.

Click for full story. Today's afternoon, ESPN affair holds great playoff implications for the Sixers. If they beat Detroit they'll stretch their lead over Miami to a half game. They'll claim the tiebreaker over the Pistons. Also, they'll put themselves one step closer to the playoff tiebreaker over the Miami Heat. The Sixers split their season series with Miami, so the next tiebreaker is conference record. The Heat come into the day at 25-22, the Sixers are 23-21. After the jump we'll break down today's game and have our in-game discussion.

Click for full story. Nine games to go, 4 at home, 5 on the road. Tonight's matchup with the 32-44 Milwaukee Bucks could be a barometer for how this regular season will end. Milwaukee played last night, typically the Sixers would look past the Bucks. Will Thad's absence light a fire under the rest of the team, or will it be the same old, same old from the up-and-down Sixers?

Click for full story. In a season full of surprising wins, we find ourselves needing a few more as the Sixers head into the final 10 games of the season. Tonight's game, against Atlanta, needs to be the first.

Click for full story. Let's face facts, the Palace at Auburn Hills has been very kind to the Sixers lately. They won game 1 on their first round playoff match there last season, they beat the Pistons there the past 2 times they've met in the regular season. Maybe that annoying "De-troit Basket-ball," guy gives them a little motivation. Who knows why, let's just hope the trend continues today.

Click for full story. There is one coach in this league who I fear, now that Jeff Van Gundy is in the announcer's booth. That man is none other than Larry Brown (AKA, The Rat, frequently in our comments section.) I don't fear Phil Jackson, I don't fear Jerry Sloan, I fear their players maybe, but not the coaches themselves. Larry Brown, though, is a guy who I think could probably take a group of five stiffs and get them to put up a decent fight. If the Sixers are going to win tonight against the Bobcats, they're probably going to have to win ugly.

Click for full story. For over a month now I've had tonight's game against the Minnesota Timberwolves written down as a loss. After that five-game West coast swing, with a short turnaround, I figured the Sixers would suffer the usual letdown upon returning home, against an opponent that it would be easy to underestimate. Now that the day has arrived, I think this game will tell us a lot about how much this team has grown, and how badly they want the number five seed.

Click for full story. For the second time on this five-game road trip, the Sixers will enter a hostile arena as a prohibitive underdog. Eight points, to be exact. ESPN's evil computer says there's an 80% chance the Blazers will win tonight, a 48% chance they'll win by 10 or more points. After the jump we'll try to figure out if the Sixers can turn the tables again like they did they last time they faced these type of odds.

Click for full story. As Sixers fans we've dealt with the highest of the highs and the lowest of the lows. This team is maddeningly streaky, capable of beating the best and losing to the worst. Not only that, but their performances seem contagious. Hot shooting begets hot shooting. Winning begets winning. And unfortunately, losing begets losing. After the jump we'll talk about what they need to do break their current string of sketchy play.

Click for full story. Everyone's favorite mo-ped racer, Monta Ellis, will play host to the Sixers tonight with the rest of the Warriors. Philly is coming off a letdown in Phoenix on Wednesday, Golden State nearly pulled off a miracle comeback in LA last night against the Lakers. After the jump we'll take a look at this key matchup for the Sixers.

Click for full story. John Hollinger's P.E.R. Diem column yesterday tackled the awe-inspiring new offense being run in Phoenix. In a nutshell they score a ton of points. After the jump, we're going to look at the cost of this offensive style, and how the Sixers can exploit Phoenix's system for their fifth straight win tonight.

Click for full story. We've spent all day talking about tonight's matchup with the Lakers. The Sixers are an underdog, in a big way. The Lakers are great. Blah, blah, blah. Well, I don't think an upset is out of the question, and I have a dirty little secret no one has been talking about. Check it out after the jump.

Click for full story. I'm going to let you guys in on a little secret, Miami is not really a very good team. You'd never know it from the media attention they get, but statistically speaking, they really aren't better than the Sixers. In fact, the teams are pretty even. Miami holds a two-game lead over the Sixers in the loss column, today the Sixers have to cut that to 1.

Click for full story. The Spectrum deserves to be shut down following a Sixer win, right? After the jump we'll take a look at how the Andres and Co. can bid farewell to the old building and make the Sixers legends in attendance proud.

Click for full story. The Toronto Raptors currently have the second-worst record in the Eastern Conference at 23-41. Over their past eight games (2-6), they have allowed an average of 112.9 points per game. As disappointed as we've been in the Sixers at certain points this season, they haven't come close to the level of under-achievement Toronto has experienced. That being said, this game has me very, very worried.
