Click for full story. 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.

Click for full story. The opportunity was right there. The opportunity to continue to be what you've been for the past half decade. The opportunity to send your fans home saying, "Not again." The opportunity to fail in the most excruciatingly painful way. Instead, they rallied behind their embattled leader and watched him calmly sink the second of two free throws and the Chicago Bulls' hopes of a dramatic comeback with one flip of the wrist.

Click for full story. The Bulls stifling defense coupled with the Sixers woeful shooting has resulted in some of the worst scoring production we've seen all year over the past three games. Welcome to the playoffs. In a series like this, scoring efficiently is mostly a pipe dream. Just scoring is the priority, scratching and clawing just enough to support the dominant defense you're playing on the other end of the floor. Forget fixing the offense or flat out beating the defense, you have to find ways to simply tilt the odds in your favor.

Click for full story. Please don't jump off a bridge tonight. It's a best-of-seven series, win Thursday and this loss just means they blew an opportunity to get a couple extra days of rest. The offense looked terrible tonight, without a doubt. But the defense was still there. The defense was actually probably better in this game than the previous two, Chicago padded their offense with literally about 15 points on completely terrible shots that somehow fell. Calm down. (game capsule).

Click for full story. It takes four wins to take a series, not three. A 3-1 lead is commanding, but until you get that fourth win nothing matters. Tonight, the Bulls are going to be primed for a fight. There's no way they roll over and die on their home court with playoff extinction on the line. Be ready to match their intensity, be ready to take their best shot and fire back with one of your own. Get this win.

Click for full story. Spencer Hawes' inspired play late in game three and carried over into game four has been a pleasant surprise, and absolutely crucial to the Sixers 3-1 lead in their first round series with the Chicago Bulls, but the big theme, and the potentially unsolvable problem for Tom Thibodeau is the play of Jrue Holiday and Evan Turner, in tandem.

Click for full story. For the second consecutive game, the Sixers have closed out a tight contest with a relentless attack of the hoop, a chip on their shoulder and suffocating defense. Every run was answered today. Every Bulls foray into the lane met with a hard contest, foul, or both. The Sixers took care of home court advantage and hold a commanding 3-1 lead over the Bulls in this first round matchup. (game capsule)

Click for full story. The Sixers spent the first three quarters scuffling for points any way they could find them and stifling the Bulls on the other end of the floor. Unfortunately, the Bulls defense was better and the Sixers couldn't hit the jumpers the Bulls were giving them. In the fourth quarter, that all changed. They scored 28 points on 19 possessions, led by Jrue Holiday and Evan Turner, who wouldn't be denied. (game capsule)

Click for full story. How did the Sixers completely change the script from game one to game two (beyond the absence of Derrick Rose)? Well, it's pretty simple. They somehow lured the Bulls into going away from their massive strength on the interior. The Bulls shot 10/29 inside of 9 feet. They attempted more long twos (26) than shots at the rim (18). I don't know how they did it, but this is the formula they've used to play the Bulls tight over the past two seasons, and they need to keep it up.

Click for full story. Mike Prada from SB Nation put together the animated .GIF above of what is probably the best thing I've seen happen on the sidelines of a Sixers game in the past six years or so. All season long we've seen glimpses of or heard rumors about Doug Collins' short leash with Evan Turner. Well, there was nothing hidden about this glorious moment in which Collins finally reached the point with Spencer Hawes any sane individual would've reached about five games into his Philly career.
