|The formula was pretty simple on Saturday night. Set the tone with the starters, build a lead with defense, then trade baskets with the subs. If you want to get more granular, when you can't run, play through Elton Brand in the post. Question is, can they do it again?|

|Word on the street is that Eddie Jordan is planning to stick with his new and improved starting lineup clear through the All Star break, so when the Sixers take the floor against the red hot Indiana Pacers (they just snapped a three-game losing streak last night with a win over the mighty Pistons), Philly should have some favorable matchups from the tip.|
|Mr. Nowitzki and the Dallas Mavs will take on the Sixers at the Wach in a few short hours. My extremely quick preview and hopefully a very long game thread after the jump.|
|The Sixers return home tonight to take on their left conference whipping boy, the Portland Blazers. If you've been MIA over the past two seasons, you've missed the Sixers handle the Blazers in almost every imaginable way. Let's hope tonight is no different. Preview and game thread after the leap.|
|If you have the day off, and really you should, you're in for a treat this afternoon. Not only do the Sixers have a game, but it's a game they really should be able to win. Preview and game thread after the jump.|
Latest comment: from BrianHere's the full link to Kate's story. Great job by her, as usual....
|Kevin Martin has picked tonight's game in Philadelphia to make his triumphant return to the King's starting lineup...lucky us. Preview, game thread etc. after the jump.|
|Like the vast majority of my sports-related wishes, I don't think this one is going to come true. But wish I will. One thing would make this New Orleans/Philadelphia game extremely enjoyable for me, seeing how Jrue Holiday stacks up with the premier point guard in the league, Chris Paul. You can even take it a step further and look forward to Jrue on Paul's backup, and Jrue's college teammate Darren Collison. Unfortunately, if Iverson is healthy I expect Jrue's minutes to take a major hit. Preview and game thread after the jump.|

|I'm hesitant to do this, considering the past two times it's resulted in Sixers wins, but I'm calling tonight's tail end of a back-to-back in Detroit a loss. Brief preview and game thread after the jump.|
Latest comment: from BrianWas this the strip/lefty dunk? That was nice....
|The Raptors bring a 7-1 record over their past eight into the Wach tonight for the Sixers first meeting with Chris Bosh-playing-out-of-his-mind-for-a-max-contract-and-a-one-way-ticket-out-of-Toronto and the rest of his defensively challenged teammates. Preview, game thread, endless angst after the jump.|
|The Sixers will bring their left coast trip to end tonight at 8pm in Denver. The Nuggets will represent the third team facing serious injury problems on the trip, with both Chauncey Billups and Carmelo Anthony listed as questionable. A quick preview and a (hopefully) long game thread after the jump.|
Latest comment: from Derek BodnerActually, it seems Green got the biggest interference from Brand...
|The Sixers will head into Staples Center later tonight looking for their third-straight road win against the Clippers with wind in their sales, a spring in their step and a healthy dose of confidence. Waiting for them will be a poorly coached team with an unbelievable size advantage which will undoubtedly be exacerbated by Eddie Jordan's asinine rotations. Preview, game thread and a contest for free tickets after the jump.|
Latest comment: from BrianNice....
|Two rookie wings showing great potential. Two young bigs contributing up front. And Beno Udrih. That's the formula for the upstart Sacramento Kings. I'm legitimately looking forward to this game.|
|If you've ever wondered why I'm not as high on the Portland Trailblazers as most of the mainstream media (who fawn all over them like a female intern in Bristol), it's probably because (a) the Sixers have won four of their past five against Portland and (b) I don't exactly see a roster that's going to defend out there. That being said, they're going to kill the Sixers tonight. Preview and game thread after the jump.|
|The Sixers annual Ice Capades road trip technically began with their head-scratching loss to the Wizards on Tuesday, but psychologically, it's always been all about the West Coast swing. The team opens this portion of the trip in Utah later tonight with the only thing looking worse than their play on the floor being the "chemistry" in the clubhouse which is quickly disintegrating. Preview and game thread after the jump.|
