Making Magic

Wednesday, November 26, 2008, 1:07 PM
The day before Thanksgiving and the day after Thanksgiving are going to reveal where this 76ers team belongs. Do they belong in the playoff discussion? Might we need to continue the "let's wait and see" approach? Or will they demonstrate they're a long way from where we thought they might... Read more

Sixers v. Magic

Wednesday, November 26, 2008, 7:22 PM
It's still 30 minutes before tip off of tonight's game, 76ers (7-7) vs. Orlando Magic (10-4), but already the Wachovia Center has more energy than it has for any game this season. It could be the rows of folks behind the Magic bench hoping for a glimpse of the Superman that is Dwight Howard, but that... Read more

'A .500 Ball Club'

Tuesday, November 25, 2008, 1:37 AM
We've spent countless blog posts and comments discussing pick-and-roll defense, defensive rotations, mid-post vs. low-post, and many other x's-and-o's breakdown of each 76ers game. And there have been 14 of them, the latest of which was tonight's (or is it last night's?) 93-84 loss at the Charlotte... Read more

6-6 ... 7-6 ... 8-6?

Monday, November 24, 2008, 10:58 AM
Maybe there is one good thing about a delayed flight? Extra time to blog? No better way to spend the time waiting for this flight to Charlotte than looking back at last night's win and forward to tonight's game against the Charlotte Bobcats. Last night. The 76ers looked better than they did during... Read more

Keep an Eye On ...

Sunday, November 23, 2008, 3:31 PM
If you've been watching the 76ers (and of course you have if you're reading this), you've probably noticed the struggles the second unit is having. In Friday night's one-point win over the Los Angeles Clippers (2-10), the Sixers built a 14-point lead in the first quarter. With 2 minutes, 42 seconds... Read more

Deep Sixer: Brand & The Clippers

Friday, November 21, 2008, 12:15 PM
I would be crazy to say tonight's game -- the 76ers (5-6) vs the Los Angeles Clippers (2-9) -- was anything more than just a run-of-the-mill NBA game between one decent team and one struggling team. Because once the game starts, that's what it will be: Just a game. But before it starts, it's fun... Read more

That "Win" Over the Clippers

Saturday, November 22, 2008, 12:11 AM
Let's be honest, while tonight's game against the Los Angeles Clippers will go down as a 'W', it was not a step in the right direction for the 76ers. It would be easy to toss around the phrase, "A win is a win," but that would be like eating candy for breakfast: Sure, it tastes good at... Read more

Clippers trade Thomas, Mobley

Friday, November 21, 2008, 6:14 PM
The already struggling Clippers (2-9) will take the court tonight against the 76ers (5-6) without two of their top five scorers. Earlier today, the Clippers traded Cuttino Mobley (13.7 points) and Tim Thomas (9.5 points) to the New York Knicks in exchange for Zach Randolph and Mardy Collins. The... Read more
