After last night's loss -- the fifth of the season -- swingman Andre Iguodala said of the 76ers' stumbling offense: "Everybody's a little uncomfortable."

I think that's also an appropriate description for everyone watching the Sixers.

The Sixers (2-5) lost 93-80 to the Utah Jazz (6-1) at the Wachovia Center. Aside from a 10-minute stretch in the third quarter where the Sixers actually looked like the team most thought they would be, this was another "uncomfortable" performance. The Sixers outscored the Jazz 30-14 in the third: That number was reversed in Utah's favor during the fourth.

I would love to post longer, but I must fly to Toronto. Good thing we'll have a chance to try to decode the Sixer mystery later today with a Live Chat at 3 p.m.

If you have some time this afternoon, click here: Sixers Chat.

Topics that need addressing: How frustrated is Iguodala? Why did Andre Miller, who was leading the team with 23 points, start the game's critical juncture -- the fourth quarter -- on the bench? Was last night a step forward? Or back? What can we expect tonight in Toronto? How long will this last before changes are made?

Hope to see you at 3 ...
