Sixers avoid setting the all-time record for consecutive losses in a season, and remain firmly committed to the rebuilding plan that was set in motion last summer.

I don’t think the Philadelphia 76ers are going to go 0-36 to end the season. They are going to get one more win. But when? Most nights they are overmatched — the other team is just more talented. That’s why they lost game 26 in a row Thursday night to the Houston Rockets, 120-98. The…

The Spurs and Clippers have distanced themselves from the pack with double-digit winning streaks and sit on top. The Sixers have anchored themselves to the bottom.

Coaches are micromanagers almost by nature. They want control, they want to set things up. So in crunch time, when their team needs a bucket, they almost inevitably call a timeout to set up a play. Of course, that also lets the defense make substitutions and set themselves up as well, but coaches want that…

Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while watching Lionel Messi be Lionel Messi…. Masked LeBron James, Miami Heat. The rest of the teams may petition the NBA asking that LeBron not be allowed to wear any mask again. In the three games since coming back and wearing a mask he is…

Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while listening to Sir David Attenborough narrate curling for the BBC as if it were Planet Earth…. LeBron James, Miami Heat. A lot of us — players and some of the media (myself included, damn Sazerac) — have been fighting off a post New Orleans…

Ersan Ilyasova is Milwaukee’s longest tenured player. He’s been there for the mediocre times, and he’s been there for the slightly worse than mediocre times. Over the course of five and a half seasons, the 26 year old forward has had ample opportunity to see exactly how the Bucks operate on every level. Basically, Ilyasova has…

When the Detroit Pistons fired Mo Cheeks as coach, a lot of eyes turned to Lionel Hollins. He had coached a somewhat similar roster in Memphis (great front line, not much outside shooting) all the way to the conference finals twice, plus he was the kind of disciplinarian the Pistons ownership feels the team needs.…

More and more I think Adam Silver’s first NBA Finals as commissioner will feature Indiana and Oklahoma City — which would be good basketball but not exactly Super Bowl ratings. Things can change, but those are the two best teams right now. 1 Thunder (41-12, Last Week No. 1). We gave been praising Kevin…

Before the season tipped off — before the lineup challenges became glaring problems, before the coach frustrated the guys that are the future of the franchise — on paper the Detroit Pistons looked like a poor man’s Memphis Grizzlies. Big front line that should be a force defensively, team probably meant to play at a…

The Detroit Pistons have fired head coach Maurice Cheeks just 50 games into his first season as the team’s head coach, reports Adrian Wojnarowski of Yahoo Sports. The timing is a bit curious, considering the Pistons had just won two straight in blowout fashion over the Nets and the Nuggets. But there have been problems…
