|Kevin Garnett is sick of people calling him old. Well, that's too bad because he is old. He's old, and Doc Rivers has been forced to grossly overwork him to get the Celtics into the playoffs and through the first round. It's time for all of those minutes to come back to haunt Garnett and Pierce. It's time for the Sixers to use their young legs to run the shallow, old Celtics right out of the playoffs.|

|Without Derrick Rose, the Bulls lose that go-to guy who can penetrate at will, hit crazy shots no matter what defense you throw at him, get a whistle to stop a scoring drought and carry the offense to a win when nothing else is working. Superstars can win games by themselves in the playoffs, and the Bulls are decidedly without one now. C.J. Watson isn't that type of player, not at all. What he is, however, is another cog with a specific purpose on the offensive end, and he fills his role very, very well.|
|As we've been reminded continuously, this Sixers team is pretty much the same Sixers team we've seen for the past half decade. If we're talking about ceilings, or draft picks, or regular season winning percentage, that's a bad thing. If we're talking about playoff performance, well, maybe it's not that bad.|

|The Sixers will take the floor in Milwaukee tonight without Elton Brand, Andre Iguodala and Thaddeus Young for a game that I honestly don't want them to win. The result is only meaningful if they somehow pass the Knicks over these final two games, but that doesn't mean they should turn this into a Summer League game. There's work to be done.|

|Professional basketball in the state of New Jersey will be put out of its misery tonight. The Sixers will play the final Nets game in the Garden State. A game that doesn't mean anything in a state that couldn't care less about the team they're losing, but for the Sixers, there's plenty on the line.|
|Why not? Why can't it happen now? The Sixers have proved they're nothing if not streaky this season. Tonight, they can push their winning streak to three games and pull to within two games of at least one of the three teams they're chasing in the playoff hunt. A win over the New Jersey Nets...too much to ask?|
|Now might be a good time to flip it. The Sixers look to halt their free fall in Newark tonight, against the 21-37 New Jersey Nets. The Bucks lost last night, pushing the Sixers 1.5 games ahead of the lottery.|
|Eventually, this win one/lose one pattern will be broken. The Sixers only focus against the Raptors is to make damned sure it isn't broken tonight. If the Sixers are going to have a prayer of finishing with better than the #7 seed, they have to beat the bad teams. Toronto has clearly earned the adjective.|

|For the fourth time in this abbreviated season, the Sixers will face an irritated Miami Heat team. On Sunday, the Heat were embarrassed on ABC by the Celtics. They've been playing mediocre basketball, especially on the road, since the All Star break. Tonight, they return home where they sport a 21-2 record and will assuredly be looking to right exact some revenge against the Sixers.|
|Believe it or not, this picture was taken a couple of years ago, not during a Knicks practice prior to Mike D'Antoni's departure. Jeremy Lin will bring his mismatched collection of stars/superstars/fading stars and bit players to the WFC tonight to take on the Sixers in an Atlantic Division showdown.|
Latest comment: from joeykeyBrian, man...hahahha such a well written post. i appreciate Depressed Fan. Thanks, man....
|The Sixers entered an extremely tough trio of games on Wednesday night against the Pacers. They entered needing to pick up one win in the three, then laid an egg against the Pacers. That throttling left them the enviable task of picking up a win either tonight, against an irate Miami Heat team, or tomorrow night against the Bulls squad that incensed the Heat on Wednesday. A tall order, indeed.|
|The Indiana Pacers are currently percentage points ahead of the Sixers in the standings. That margin means everything once the playoffs start. Even if the Sixers win the Atlantic Division and are guaranteed no worse than the #4 seed, they could still be a road team in the first round of the playoffs if the #5 seed has a better record. A win tonight would give the Sixers a one-game lead on Indy and a 2-0 advantage in their head-to-head games (with 2 left to play at the end of the season). Must. Win.|
