Click for full story. I put together a worksheet with the Sixers individual stats from the preseason, take a gander but keep a couple things in mind. (1) The Sixers played an exceptionally easy preseason schedule. (2) They were learning new offensive and defensive systems on the go. (3) Coach Jordan spent the better part of the last three games working different rotations.

Click for full story. It's been far too long since I last broke out a spreadsheet to analyze the Sixers on a deeper level. Today, it's time to reset the clock. After the jump we're going to take a look at trends in what I consider three crucial stats that aren't typically talked about by the MSM, then check several key splits to see how the team performed in certain situations.

Click for full story. As I was doing some housekeeping around the blog, I decided to take a closer look at the four factors worksheet, and throw a couple new rows in to see if we could find any hidden nuggets in there that would point out the difference between winning and losing for the Sixers in 08-09. Results after the jump.

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. Inspired by a comment from John earlier this week, I dove into the Four Factors worksheet last night. After the jump we'll slice and dice the advanced stats to see how the home court advantage really effects the Sixers.

Click for full story. Two interesting happenings over on ESPN.com today. First, John Hollinger has augmented his baby, P.E.R., with two new formulas. One is similar to VORP in baseball, the other uses the VORP number to project wins created. And just when he gets done explaining his new methodology, Henry Abbott takes his system to task (sort of) on True Hoop.

Click for full story. It's always fun to take a look at the stats when a player is on a hot streak. After the jump we'll break down Thad's play from the past five games.

Click for full story. 31 wins, 31 losses. I figure we aren't going to get a much better sampling than this to look at statistical splits. After the jump I'll highlight some meaningful, meaningless, hilarious and troubling splits for the Sixers.

Click for full story. OK, I've had my day of self loathing. It's time to move on from the worst loss of the season. What better way to kick it off than to find an obscure stat which favors the Sixers. This one doesn't mean anything, really, but it's still fun. BasketballValue.com has released their adjusted +/-, per five-man unit, and you absolutely will not believe which unit is the best in the league (among units which have accumulated more than 35 minutes). Check it out, we'll discuss after the jump.

Click for full story. John Hollinger's PER Diem column today features Roy, and Hollinger makes the argument that Roy is the 7th-best player in the league (behind LeBron, Wade, Paul, Kobe, Dwight Howard and Tim Duncan). Take a look at the article, we'll discuss after the jump.

Click for full story. It's simplistic to say, "The Sixers have been killed by the three," especially recently. I've tried to figure out why this is the case, but I think it's also important to understand what, exactly is happening, from a statistical standpoint. After the jump, we'll take a look at the past five games through a very specific statistical filter, I'm hoping it will shed some light.

Click for full story. As I was updating the Four Factors worksheet this morning, something jumped out at me right away. When you see a four-game losing streak, you automatically assume the team has just been playing horrible basketball. That's really not the case. In fact, if you go all the way back to the Nets game on Jan. 31 (the 0/18 game), the Sixers have dominated every single area of the game, all but one, that is. Shooting.

Click for full story. The answers to your pop quiz: Player A was Lou Williams in 2007-2008, player B was Lou Williams in 2008-2009, Player C was Willie Green in 2008-2009. OK, so it was a bit of a trick question, but there's a reason behind it. After the jump we'll talk about exactly how bad Lou has been, and I'll say something I never, ever thought I'd say.

Click for full story. Now that Elton Brand is back on the floor, I feel we're running out of time to state our case against Willie Green staying in the starting lineup when EB is ready to go 30 minutes per. This post will be short on words, heavy on stats. After the jump you'll find what I believe is an extremely compelling argument for burying Green on the end of the bench and running with a starting lineup of Sam, EB, Thad, Iggy and Miller.
