Click for full story. There are obvious trends to observe from the first three games of the Sixers/Magic first round series, and there are some more subtle as well. Given a minute to breath, I thought tonight was a good opportunity to take a look at a few advanced stats to see if we could prove out the obvious ones and surface a few of the more subtle.

Click for full story. This game should not have been decided by two points. The free throw shooting was atrocious in the fourth quarter, and the Sixers should've put Orlando out of its misery much, much earlier. Still, a win is a win. And a win in the playoffs is gold, especially in a swing game. Thoughts on game three after the jump.

Click for full story. When all else fails, give the ball to Thad. Not exactly what my offensive philosophy would be, but it worked in a big way tonight. Sixers up 2-1. A few quick thoughts after the jump.

Click for full story. May 13, 1999: My father and I made the ride down to Philly to see the #6 seed Philadelphia 76ers take on the #3 seed Orlando Magic in game three of their first-round series. The teams split the first two in Orlando. That night, Allen Iverson exploded all over the Magic, setting a playoff record with 10 steals, and the FU Center was absolutely electric for the entire 48 minutes. I'll be making the trek down to the Wach tomorrow, hopefully to see history repeat itself. Who else is going to be there?

Click for full story. In the wrap I touched upon the horrible game everyone but the big three had. After running the game over in my mind for a couple hours, I realized we need to dive deeper into this abject failure.

Click for full story. End of the day, the Sixers are headed back to the Wach with home court advantage in their back pocket. This game was a missed opportunity. This game left me extremely, extremely angry, but I'm trying to keep things in some kind of perspective. After the jump we'll take a look at what I consider some serious, serious flaws in Coach DiLeo's rotations.

Click for full story. The favorites have won all five game twos so far in the first round. Portland, Boston and San Antonio all evened their series at 1-1 after dropping the first game at home. The Sixers are the only team left with a chance to buck the trend. In-game discussion and a brief word from our General Manager (courtesy of Tom Moore's column) after the jump.

Click for full story. Kate Fagan has a solid piece on Andre Iguodala and the Philly fans' love/hate relationship with him. We've seen this odd dynamic play out right here on this blog in the comments section for a couple of years now, you all know where I stand. A couple of interesting quotes from the article after the jump.

Click for full story. After stunning the Pistons on their own floor in game one, the Sixers came out flat in game two and Detroit put their stamp on the series. They were physical, they were aggressive, they executed to perfection. They came out with a clear intent to put the Sixers in their place. How will this year's game two differ from last year's?

Click for full story. This afternoon I decided to take a closer look at the stats from yesterday's game. I wanted to see if there was a numeric way to quantify the effectiveness of the Sixers' game plan, on both sides of the ball. After the jump, we'll dive into the results.

Click for full story. As the road team in the playoffs, your goal coming in is to take home-court advantage away from the higher seed in the first two games. Get the game back to your own stadium with the series tied 1-1 and you're in the driver's seat. So great, the Sixers have done that, time to relax now, right? Wrong.

Click for full story. At their core, the Sixers are a young team. Superficially, you'd think that quick turnarounds would be beneficial to them, considering their opponents are typically older. In this case however, the extra days off will be an advantage for the Sixers.

Click for full story. Charles Barkley during halftime of tonight's game: "The Sixers won't win a game in this series." Any wonder how Charles has lost millions gambling in Vegas? After the jump we'll look at the rotations and talk about the perfect defensive game plan, the Sixers' secret weapon and the epic comeback that put our Sixers in the driver's seat of this first-round series.
