Philadelphia 76ers

  1. Sixers’ Evan Turner apologizes for dunk to close out win against Lakers

    Dec 30, 2013, 11:27 AM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Los Angeles Lakers

    There is etiquette to the end of NBA games — if your team is going to win you don’t celebrate with a dunk or three, you dribble it out, hand the ball to the referee and walk off. The Sixers were up 109-104 on the Lakers with about five seconds left in the game Sunday…

  2. The Extra Pass: Changes coming in threes; plus Sunday’s recaps

    Dec 30, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Andre Iguodala

    If you’ve watched basketball this year and thought at some point, “Man, these teams sure are shooting a lot of threes”, you’re not alone. Firing up shots from behind the arc has become more of a standard practice for most NBA teams (except for good ol’ Memphis) and teams like the Phoenix Suns and Portland…

  3. Sunday night NBA grades: Thunder’s Durant, Lamb both get an “A”

    Dec 30, 2013, 3:10 AM EDT

    Kevin Durant

    Our quick look around the NBA, or what you missed while watching the Dallas Cowboys miss the playoffs again… Kevin Durant, Oklahoma City Thunder. With Russell Westbrook out a whole lot more scoring load falls on Durant’s shoulders — and he answered against a tired Rockets team. Durant had 31 points on 11-17 shooting, 13…

  4. 76ers hired a coach with a plan for handling a tanking team

    Dec 27, 2013, 4:45 PM EDT

    Brett Brown

    Thaddeus Young reportedly requested a trade from the 76ers. Though he later denied it, that’s the type of thing veterans on tanking teams do. Evan Turner has been featured prominently in trade reports. That’s another thing that happens with veterans on a tanking team. Good luck coaching all that, especially if you’re a first-year coach,…

  5. PBT NBA Power Rankings: Santa brings presents to Blazers, Thunder; lumps of coal to Atlantic

    Dec 23, 2013, 3:59 PM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Cleveland Cavaliers

    Oklahoma City almost took over the top spot in the rankings, until they laid an egg Sunday night. The Blazers hold on for another week, but they didn’t look elite last week even in their wins and this week sees a few big tests.   1. Trail Blazers (23-5, Last Week No. 1). If the…

  6. Evan Turner hits game-winner at the overtime buzzer to give Sixers win over Nets (VIDEO)

    Dec 20, 2013, 10:51 PM EDT

    Britain NBA Preseason Basketball

    When the Nets played the Sixers just four days ago in Brooklyn, they won by 36 points and honestly, the game wasn’t even that close. Things were different Friday night in Philadelphia, however, and it had everything to do with the available personnel. Kevin Garnett took this game off as a day of rest, and…

  7. Thaddeus Young denies making trade request. Because that’s how the game is played.

    Dec 20, 2013, 5:05 PM EDT

    Thaddeus Young

    Yesterday we passed along the report that before Philadelphia had starting shopping Thaddeus Young around he had gone to the team and asked for a trade. He didn’t want to be part of a rebuilding process. If you’ve watched how this game was played with others guys trying to get moved then you knew what…

  8. Michael Carter-Williams returns to Sixers lineup Friday against Nets

    Dec 20, 2013, 12:51 PM EDT

    Oklahoma City Thunder v Philadelphia 76ers

    This could be fun: Deron Williams vs. Michael Carter-Williams. Looks like we will get to see it because Michael Carter-Williams is set to return to the Sixers lineup Friday night after missing seven straight games with a knee infection. Officially he is a game time decision — because teams like to keep their options open…

  9. Reports: Houston Rockets pull out of Asik trade talks, will keep him for now

    Dec 19, 2013, 1:26 PM EDT

    Omer Asik

    Omer Asik may not like it, but he’s staying a Rocket for now. Probably. After weeks of talks — not to mention media and fan speculation — Rockets’ GM Daryl Morey has looked at the trade market for Asik and decided it’s not good enough. The Rockets have pulled out of all Asik trade talks…

  10. LeBron, Kobe top NBA jersey sales list during holidays

    Dec 19, 2013, 12:51 PM EDT

    Heat Media Day Basketball

    He’s the reigning NBA MVP, won the last two NBA titles, earned the last two the Finals MVPs… And not surprisingly, LeBron James sells a lot of jerseys. The NBA released the top selling jerseys from the start of this season (October through December this year), which includes the holiday buying rush, and not surprisingly…

  11. Asik trade update: Atlanta, Boston, Cleveland and Philadelphia most likely destinations

    Dec 17, 2013, 11:10 PM EDT

    Omer Asik

    This is the one thing that is certain: Omer Asik will get his wish and be traded in the next 48 hours. Houston still plans to move him by Dec. 19 — after that date and they can’t flip any of the assets they get at the trade deadline. Where he is going to land…

  12. Report: Bulls, Sixers lead in Dion Waiters trade talks, he wants Philly

    Dec 17, 2013, 5:04 PM EDT

    Dion Waiters

    It’s been known for a while the Cavaliers have been testing the trade market for Dion Waiters. We told you last week that there was buzz the Sixers could look to move Evan Turner — he leads them in scoring and as a free agent this summer could draw a bigger contract than they want…

  13. Tony Wroten warned for flopping

    Dec 17, 2013, 11:15 AM EDT

    Tony Wroten, Steve Novak

    The NBA warned Tony Wroten for flopping, and he deserved it. Here’s video (hat tip: Ben Golliver of Point Forward): Wroten was wide open when he shot, and he still fell. He clearly stuck his foot out to either draw contact or lose his balance. It’s the type of play that could get someone injured.…

  14. Nerlens Noel says he might come back this season

    Dec 16, 2013, 8:01 PM EDT

    Sam Hinkie, Nerlens Noel

    I still wouldn’t bet on it. Smart money is last year’s first round pick Nerlens Noel will sit out this entire season recovering from an ACL injury, there is no reason for Philadelphia to rush him. That’s been the accepted wisdom. However, when Noel was interviewed on SiriusXM NBA Radio with hosts Jason Goff and…

  15. PBT’s NBA Power Rankings: Stability at the top, trades could shake up bottom

    Dec 16, 2013, 1:47 PM EDT

    Houston Rockets v Portland Trail Blazers

    There is no movement at the top of the standings as the top five teams went 15-1 last week (and that one loss was to another top 5 team). However, get past that five and you get into teams like the Rockets, Suns and others where trades could really change rankings as we move toward…

  16. Blazers’ Meyers Leonard, Sixers’ Daniel Orton each suspended one game for altercation

    Dec 15, 2013, 4:36 PM EDT

    Daniel Orton, Meyers Leonard

    Portland’s Meyers Leonard and Philadelphia’s Daniel Orton were each suspended one game without pay on Sunday for their roles in the altercation that took place between the two players on Saturday, the league announced. Leonard body-slammed Orton to the floor (that’s the term used in the official release, so it must be true), and then…

  17. Sixers’ Daniel Orton, Trail Blazers’ Meyers Leonard ejected after scuffle (VIDEO)

    Dec 15, 2013, 11:00 AM EDT

    Meyers Leonard

    This was just frustration, because by this point in the fourth quarter the game itself was all but over — Portland was up 34 and cruising in for a win. Philadelphia’s Daniel Orton was trying to back down Portland’s Meyers Leonard in to the post while the ball was on the other side of the…

  18. Report: Cavs have no interest in trading for Omer Asik

    Dec 14, 2013, 6:30 PM EDT

    Omer Asik

    The Rockets have made the decision to trade Omer Asik, and will more than likely do so during a five-day window that begins on Sunday. The reason for that specific timeline is due to the fact that players who signed new contracts last summer weren’t eligible to be traded until Dec. 15, and any players…

  19. Report: Sixers considering trading Evan Turner

    Dec 13, 2013, 4:10 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Atlanta Hawks

    Evan Turner leads the Philadelphia 76ers in scoring this season — he’s still not a great shooter but he has a couple spots he can get to on the floor (along the baselines in the midrange) where he is solid, plus he is finishing better inside. He’s really a solid rotation player on most teams,…

  20. Deserving or not Kobe Bryant, Dwyane Wade among All-Star starters in early voting returns

    Dec 12, 2013, 1:58 PM EDT

    2012 NBA All-Star Game

    It’s your game fans. The NBA All-Star Game is an exhibition filled with the players you vote to see. Whether those players deserve the honor based on their performance the first half of the season or not. Sometimes the most deserving guys don’t make the cut while guys hobbling through the season do. Which brings…

  21. Why question “When did basketball get so bad?” misses mark

    Dec 10, 2013, 11:40 AM EDT

    Tahoe Celebrity Golf

    NBA basketball right now is entering a golden age. Just not everybody appreciates that. Charles Barkley swung by the Dan Patrick Show on Monday and together they sounded like grumpy old men telling you how basketball isn’t as good now as it was when they were fans of the sport. At least they didn’t throw…

  22. The Extra Pass: Five quick ways to improve the league; plus Monday’s Recaps

    Dec 10, 2013, 8:00 AM EDT

    Dwight Howard

    Five ideas that could help make the NBA even greater: Offensive Goaltending: Let’s get rid of it. The “in the cylinder” call is routinely one of the toughest for refs to get right on the floor, and we know how the subsequent huddle and review process can suck the life out of a game. If it…

  23. Watch DeAndre Jordan get the Los Angeles ripped off his jersey (VIDEO)

    Dec 10, 2013, 12:02 AM EDT

    DeAndre Jordan

    Not sure I have ever seen this before. Early in the Clippers eventual easy win over the Sixers Chris Paul puts up a shot and because DeAndre Jordan‘s man had rotated over to help on the drive it left Tony Wroten — all 6’5″, 205 five of him — trying to keep Jordan off the…

  24. PBT NBA Power Rankings: At the quarter pole Portland takes the lead

    Dec 9, 2013, 4:53 PM EDT

    Portland Trail Blazers v Golden State Warriors

    The general rule of thumb is 20 games into the season you can start to really trust the stats and the trends — in which case it’s good to be a Portland Trail Blazers fan. They move into the top slot with their recent wins over Indiana and OKC. 1. Trail Blazers (17-4, Last Week…

  25. Report: Sixers a viable trade destination for Omer Asik

    Dec 8, 2013, 11:00 AM EDT

    Omer Asik

    The reports surrounding the status of Rockets big man Omer Asik will continue their steady stream until the inevitable trade happens. Houston wanted to make it work with Asik playing alongside Dwight Howard, but that experiment failed and with Asik being disgruntled in his situation and constantly requesting to be traded, the Rockets seem determined…
