Make That Four

Wednesday, February 25, 2009, 11:21 PM
The 76ers have swept the Washington Wizards, which, while not exactly impressive, does add four wins to the season total. The Sixers completed the sweep tonight with a 106-98 victory at the Verizon Center in Washington D.C. No, the Sixers aren't dillusional: They understand a victory over Washington... Read more

That Half-Court Heave

Monday, February 23, 2009, 11:54 PM
Okay, so from the beginning, I have to say that I watched the replay of Devin Harris' shot tonight about 15 times, but I have not seen the full replay including the starting of the clock on the inbounds with 1.8 seconds left. But here's what's coming from the Izod Center, the referees, the Sixers... Read more

Miller Will Play

Saturday, February 21, 2009, 3:14 PM
The 76ers have just cleared point guard Andre Miller for tonight's game against the Miami Heat. Miller strained his right calf in the third quarter of Wednesday's loss to the Denver Nuggets. Miller said yesterday he intended to play, then repeated that sentiment when he arrived at the American Airlines... Read more

Sixers Stay Put

Thursday, February 19, 2009, 3:15 PM
(Note: Andre Miller update. Miller had an MRI this morning and the test confirmed a right calf strain, but no tear. He is listed as day-to-day. No word yet on whether he will play Saturday against the Miami Heat. Miller strained the muscle in the third quarter of last night's loss to the Denver Nuggets... Read more

Are they off break yet?

Wednesday, February 18, 2009, 5:23 PM
The 76ers weren't off break last night, that's obvious. But maybe tonight against the Denver Nuggets they will have worked themselves back into game shape, ready to play after that six-day layoff. After talking to a few of the Sixers before last night's game against the Pacers, they admitted that the... Read more

The Next 5

Monday, February 16, 2009, 4:47 PM
The mid-winter bash known as the All-Star weekend has finally ended. And since I'm sitting at my Phoenix gate with entirely too much time on my hands, I figured it was time to get back to the blog. As necessary as the break is -- these guys needs a few days rest, after all -- it's does feel like the... Read more

The All-Stars

Friday, February 13, 2009, 9:04 PM
Here's a quick Blackberry snapshot of today in downtown Phoenix. About to begin is the T-Mobile Rookie Challenge, featuring the only 76er out here this weekend, forward Thaddeus Young. I think the captions say it all. --Kate Read more

It's Halftime

Thursday, February 12, 2009, 10:38 PM
Okay, so it's past the halfway mark of this season, well past, and yet it's easy to look at this weekend's All-Star Break as the perfect opportunity to assess the "first half" of this season (we're 51 games in, 31 to go ...). First, I do believe we'll be having a Live Chat tomorrow (Friday)... Read more

Yup, Speights

Monday, February 9, 2009, 10:49 PM
While wondering how the 76ers were going to fill the void created by Elton Brand's exit, we pondered the merits of rookie Marreese Speights. More specifically, we said he should get at least 15 minutes a game, he should become a presence on the block, and he should -- along with some efforts elsewhere... Read more

Brand's Surgery & The Suns

Monday, February 9, 2009, 5:27 PM
The 76ers have announced that Elton Brand's shoulder surgery, which was performed this afternoon by Dr. Craig Morgan at the Christiana Surgery Center in Wilmington, DE., went as planned. The Sixers said the procedure lasted about an hour, in which Morgan repaired the torn right labrum that Brand suffered... Read more
