Click for full story. Now that the Sixers have their representatives in both the JV game (Evan Turner) and the main event (Andre Iguodala) for All-Star weekend, let's take a look at whether Jodie Meeks deserves an invite to the three-point shootout.

Click for full story. It's probably long overdue, but our very own Andre Iguodala has finally made the All Star team. It's great for AI9 to get the recognition, and I think it should be mandated that when the Inquirer refers to him from now on they should replace "grossly overpaid" with "All Star." Congrats to @mindofai9.

Click for full story. It's been a long, long time since the Sixers both had players deserving of being selected to the All Star team, and a good enough record for the team to be noticed around the league. This year, they've got both. The teams will be announced in a few short hours, get your prediction in early.

Click for full story. For the second consecutive game, a stout Western Conference opponent found a way to exploit the hidden underbelly of the Sixers defense. The Spurs didn't expose the Sixer bigs on the glass, instead they put their cement feet on display for all to see by running pick-and-roll after pick-and-roll. Jrue didn't even resemble the PG who's been shutting down opponents with regularity as he tried to go under, over and around a series of picks from big men on nearly every possession and failed more often than not while his bigs proved to be more of hindrance than a help. (game capsule).

Click for full story. Another Western Conference powerhouse heads into the WFC tonight. The Spurs, much like the Lakers, have been dreadful on the road, but also like the Lakers, they have a bevy of big men who will test the Sixers weakened front court. Will Philly be able to figure out a way to keep the Spurs bigs off the offensive glass, or at least be able to compensate for the deficit again?

Click for full story. There has been quite a bit of discussion on the Sixers' defensive performance vs. the Lakers.  Some of it was good (challenging of shots led to average 2-point and excellent 3-point percentages against, 16 turnovers forced), some of it was bad (all those rebounds!).  So who was responsible for what?  One way to tell is to do what I did a couple times last year, compute a reverse boxscore, by assigning all Lakers statistics to a Sixer.  In the reverse boxscore, defensive rebounds, steals, and blocks are all accumulated while the Sixers are on offense, while all other stats are accumulated while the Sixers are on defense.  When there are switches on defense, I usually assign the shot attempts/makes to the final defender, not to the initial defender (same for offensive rebounds allowed).

Click for full story. I feel kind of bad for writing a headline like that about the Sixers, because they're honestly the furthest thing from a one-man-show in the NBA today. But Lou Williams absolutely put this game away and he deserves a ton of credit for stepping up and carrying the Sixers down the stretch. This win over the Lakers was amazing on so many different levels, I don't even know where to begin. (game capsule).

Click for full story. Fresh off a successful 3-1 week, the challenges keep coming for the Sixers. Tonight, they'll face a team with more size than they know what to do with, literally, in the Los Angeles Lakers. The coaches had a flight home from Atlanta and an off day to figure out what to do with Andrew Bynum and Pau Gasol, hopefully the guys can go out and execute tonight.

Click for full story. No Elton Brand, Iguodala and Jrue suffer through dreadful shooting nights, second night of a back-to-back against a well-rested, 16-7 Atlanta Hawks squad...no problem. The Sixers used their bench and the return of their starting center to systematically pick the Hawks apart on the road and cap a 3-1 week in style. (game capsule).

Click for full story. 36 minutes just doesn't cut it when you're playing a team like the Heat. The Sixers matched them step-for-step through three quarters. Answered every run, threw in a couple of their own, beat them at their own game, but when the Heat put their foot on the gas in the fourth, the Sixers just had nothing left in the tank. No answer at all. (game capsule)

Click for full story. Sporting two of the top five players in the league along with a top-15 big to clean up their sloppy seconds, the Heat are really a team of three. They have a couple guys who play their roles relatively well, but the big two-plus-Bosh are the engine behind a team that's capable of beating anyone when they play as a team, but more likely to get caught up in their individual greatness than team success. The question is how do the Sixers get the Heat superstars into a one-on-one game?
