|If the game is in question, Doug Collins trusts eight players on his roster. Spencer Hawes, Elton Brand, Andre Iguodala, Jodie Meeks, Jrue Holiday, Evan Turner, Lou Williams and Thaddeus Young. That's his group. Those are his guys, and he's going to win or lose with them on the floor. Whether relying so heavily on eight players is sustainable over the course of this abbreviated season remains to be seen, but for now, that's his plan and he's sticking to it. Let's see how he's mixed and matched those players so far.|

|Under seven hours until the tip. If you have a firm grasp on what Doug Collins plans to do with his substitutions in tonight's game, you're a better man than I. Still, we've studied the preseason, we're familiar with the roster so let's see if we can't make an educated guess to pass the time. Just like last season, my recap will include the rotation chart, you'll also be able to find it on the game 1 page, which will be accessible through the schedule page and I'll post a link when it's up.|

|Later tonight, the Sixers will tip off their eighth game of the season in New Jersey, against a heavily depleted Nets team. I fully expect Eddie Jordan to pull out all the stops to get a win, the only question is which rotations he believes give the team the best chance. After the jump we'll discuss and take a look at the updated advanced stats.|
|The Sixers have problems which need to be worked out, on both sides of the ball, not the least of which is how to get any kind of consistent production from their bench. A look at a few splits from the first four games after the jump.|
|Pat Riley was always famous for trimming his rotations down to eight men for the playoffs. During the season, he'd dig deeper into his roster, but once the games started counting, he'd divvy up the available minutes among his starters and his three best reserves. I'm very curious to see what Coach DiLeo does with his own substitution patterns in the first round. After the jump we'll take a look at how he handed out minutes in the more important games during the regular season.|
|First things first, the only way to describe Vinny Del Negro's mullet is exquisite. Seriously, he should be coaching in the NHL with that beauty. On the court Andre Miller won this game for the Sixers, plain and simple. He...|
