|Part three of our first half review will feature the most hotly-debated players on the team. When Elton Brand returns, this group should see a big shakedown in minute distribution. It's anyone's guess as to how that will affect the production of these guys. After the jump, we'll take a look at the splits for the Sixers' power forwards and centers, see who's been a second-half warrior in the past and make the case for more minutes for a certain rook.|
|The New Orleans Hornets are now without the services of starting center Tyson Chandler, starting power forward David West and backup big man Hilton Armstrong. Even with all three of those guys healthy, they still have absolutely no depth at the 4, nor at the 5. They have great depth at SG and SF, however. Do I smell a trade partner?|

|That calm, proud feeling you've been overcome with for the past hour or so doesn't happen often, so enjoy it. A feeling like this only comes from a perfect game from your beloved team, against a powerhouse, that results in a blowout.|

|The oft-maligned Samuel Dalembert has been a point of contention on this blog for a long time. He's showed signs of development, and to be honest, defensive dominance, over the past couple of years, but his horrible hands and bone-headed plays cancel out the positives. Far too often, he just doesn't seem to get it.|
|Three obvious reasons the Sixers lost this game, 105-101 to the Nuggets. Which one do you like best? 1. Outscored by 30 points from three. (5 threes to 15) 2. Outworked on the boards (41 to 34 overall, 12 to 8 on the offensive glass) 3. Can't hit a free throw (18/30, 60%)|
|If you've been following the comments around here, I'm sure you've seen plenty of trade speculation. I admit it, I love doing it, I love reading it. Today we're going to talk to a couple of Bulls bloggers about two trades that we dreamed up in the comments, see how they look from the other side.|
|As I was pouring through various stats last night, mostly doing research for the Thad piece I wrote earlier, a few things jumper out at me. First, take a look at the league leaders on Basketball-reference.com. The Sixers don't have one player in the top five in any statistical category. I can't think of any Sixer who's even close.|
|Let's face facts, there was no way this Sixers team was going to beat the Lakers tonight. It just wasn't going to happen. The fact that this never turned into a Celtics-esque blowout left me feeling pretty good. The Sixers...|
|This thought just popped into my head as I was walking back to the office from lunch and I thought I'd throw it out there for you guys:How much of a drop-off would the Sixers see if they put Marreese...|

|It was great to see the Sixers get back to .500 with an easy win over the Thunder tonight. This was a game against an extremely bad team that the Sixers should have won easily, and they did, 110-85....|
|I hate Florida, it's official. This was a thoroughly demoralizing trip through the sunshine state for the Sixers, and I'm glad it's over. I'm only going to use one stat to demonstrate how bad this game was. If you ever...|
