Philadelphia 76ers

  1. NBC Sports and Yahoo Sports have teamed up in new deal

    nbc-sports2

    In case you missed the business news wires this morning — because you were busy reading about the latest Lakers implosion — NBC Sports and Yahoo Sports have formed a new partnership. Yahoo! and the NBC Sports Group today announced a content and promotional deal combining Yahoo! Sports’ original reporting expertise, coverage of big events,…

  2. Andrew Bynum says he expects to play this year but right now feels pain walking

    Dec 10, 2012, 6:56 PM EST

    Injured Philadelphia 76er Bynum walks past a teammate before the start of the NBA basketball game between the 76ers and the Toronto Raptors in Philadelphia

    Andrew Bynum spoke with the media again and… Sixers fans, I’m sorry. I wish things were different. The guy Philly wants to build a franchise around remains out indefinitely. If you want the optimistic view, Bynum said he fully expects to play this season. He is going to get another MRI on December 20 and…

  3. Evan Turner’s key to improved three point shooting? Stop practicing.

    Dec 10, 2012, 3:14 PM EST

    Philadelphia 76ers v Boston Celtics

    Kids, don’t try this at home. Eat your vegetables. Wear a helmet while skateboarding. Practice your jump shots. Evan Turner is having a career year, scoring 14.1 points per game, with a PER of 16. He hit a game winner against Boston over the weekend and is a key reason Philadelphia is 11-9 even without…

  4. NBA Power Rankings: Oh-oh Thunder road, oh Thunder road

    Dec 10, 2012, 2:43 PM EST

    Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook

    A lot of the preseason talk in the West focused on the Lakers… and it still does. And too often it ends with “and the Thunder are still contenders, too.” No, the Thunder are the defending Western Conference champs, the team to beat in that conference and they look pretty good right now. Thank you…

  5. Kevin Garnett finishes with zero rebounds in Celtics’ win over Sixers

    Dec 9, 2012, 9:50 AM EST

    Boston Celtics' Garnett complains about a foul during their NBA basketball game against Brooklyn Nets in Boston

    Kevin Garnett anchored the Celtics offensively on Saturday, leading his team in scoring with 19 points on 9-of-11 shooting during Boston’s 92-79 win over the Sixers. The game was a blowout, which was somewhat to be expected considering the way the Celtics lost to this same team in Philadelphia just the night before. Evan Turner…

  6. Rondo says he should have taken the layup after slipping on game-winning shot attempt

    Dec 8, 2012, 2:00 PM EST

    Rajon Rondo

    We showed you Evan Turner‘s game-winner from Friday night’s contest between the Celtics and Sixers. It wouldn’t have been the deciding basket, though, had Rondo been more decisive on the game’s final possession. Boston had a final chance, inbounding the ball on their end of the floor trailing by one with 2.7 seconds remaining. It goes…

  7. Video: Evan Turner goes iso, hits game winner vs. Celtics

    Dec 7, 2012, 10:32 PM EST

    Evan Turner

    There are couple ways to look at Evan Turner‘s game. You can say he had 26 points and 10 points and that’s a good night. But I look at him shooting 10-26 — that’s 37.5 percent — and I see a gunner who was volume shooting not being efficient. Basically, he wasn’t good he just…

  9. Video: Dwight Howard caps off his big night with a three pointer

    Dec 1, 2012, 7:00 PM EST

    Dwight Howard

    Andrew Bynum is so jealous. When Bynum was with the Lakers his attempted three pointer against the Warriors landed him on the bench. Against the Nuggets, Dwight Howard took a three and everyone loved him for it. I guess that’s what happens when yours goes in. Howard capped off his 28 point, 20 rebound night with…

  10. Pau Gasol still trying to find his place in D’Antoni’s offense

    Nov 30, 2012, 12:07 PM EST

    BASKET-US-LAKERS-PACERS

    Pau Gasol is a unique talent in the NBA — he has the most polished, skilled post moves in the league with the ability to score with both hands going either direction, he also has a steady midrange game, and is a great passer if you want to have guys cutting off him while you…

  11. Andrew Bynum in nasty lawsuit with California neighbors

    Nov 29, 2012, 12:45 PM EST

    Andrew Bynum

    Nothing brings out the best in people like disputes with neighbors. And by “best” I mean most petty, childish, scuzzy behavior possible. For seven years Andrew Bynum has owned a home in Westchester, an area of Los Angeles not too far from the Lakers practice facility (the Lakers traded him to Philadelphia last summer), and…

  13. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Sixers get win despite Vince Carter heroics

    Dorell Wright, Shawn Marion

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of the day in NBA action. Or, what you missed while watching a Christmas lights show timed out to “Gangnam Style”… Pacers 79, Lakers 77: Sometimes you watch a game and think neither team deserves to win it. That was this game. It was ugly. But despite 40 from Kobe Bryant…

  14. Mavericks’ Carlisle frustrated enough with Collison to start Dominique Jones

    Nov 27, 2012, 7:25 PM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers v Dallas Mavericks

    Mavericks coach Rick Carlisle has been frustrated with point guard Darren Collison this season — just the other day Carlisle ripped Collison’s defense. Offensively Collison’s overall numbers are pretty average for a starter — 12.9 points on 43.6 percent shooting, a PER right at the league average 15. That said, Collison is getting 30 percent…

  17. NBA Power Rankings: Memphis hangs on but Spurs, Heat charging

    Nov 26, 2012, 2:25 PM EST

    Lionel Hollins, Jerryd Bayless, Mike Conley

    If you ask me who was the best team in the NBA was last week, well, it was Denver. But they are fully capable of a winless week now, so we leave Memphis in the top spot this week. And Washington is still trying to find a win and a way out of the cellar…

  18. Luol Deng says Joakim Noah is best center in East

    Nov 26, 2012, 12:54 PM EST

    Chicago Bulls v Los Angeles Clippers

    Who is the best center in the Eastern Conference right now? It’s moot now, but if this was the old NBA All-Star ballot and you had to vote for a center, who would it be. We can rule out Andrew Bynum indefinitely. How about Al Horford in Atlanta, not a classic center but has played…

  19. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Celtics, Spurs need OT for wins

    Nov 26, 2012, 5:26 AM EST

    Manu Ginobili; DeMar DeRozan;

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of the day in NBA action. Or, what you missed while out buying a $4.2 million gold Christmas tree… Spurs 111, Raptors 106 (2OT): Now this is a close game — at the end of every quarter and the first overtime this was a one-point or tied game. Toronto needs to…

  20. Three Stars of the Night: All guard edition

    Nov 26, 2012, 12:05 AM EST

    Philadelphia 76ers point guard Jrue Holiday stretches past Boston Celtics power forward Kevin Garnett in Game 6

    Sunday’s slate of games was fairly uninspiring, with no marquee matchups to speak of; even the two games that went into overtime and double overtime ended up being won by the team that was expected to do so. But the players that shined the brightest might say otherwise, and the ones we’ve chosen as our…

  21. Andrew Bynum out indefinitely, no timeline to join Sixers

    Nov 24, 2012, 8:34 PM EST

    Injured Philadelphia 76ers Andrew Bynum smiles before the start of the NBA basketball game between the 76ers and the Denver Nuggets in Philadelphia

    Philadelphia rolled the dice this summer on making Andrew Bynum their future — they traded Andre Iguodala for him. They sold the fans on how they could build around him. It’s far too early to say it came up snake eyes, but at the very least this is not going to be an easy point…

  22. Pau Gasol benched in latest Lakers loss, wants more touches in the post

    Nov 24, 2012, 12:00 PM EST

    Los Angeles Lakers Introduce Mike D'Antoni

    The Lakers have lost two straight after winning their first with Mike D’Antoni in place on the sidelines, and in both of those games, the frontcourt combination of Dwight Howard and Pau Gasol was completely shut down. The home win over Brooklyn was solid, but the loss in Sacramento was embarrassing, and the loss in…

  23. Five early season NBA trends to be thankful for

    Nov 22, 2012, 4:29 PM EST

    Blake Griffin, Chris Paul, Shane Battier

    We are 10 games or so into the NBA season and one thing is clear — this is fun. Not everything is fitting neatly into the preseason prediction boxes and that is the best part of being a sports fan. We at PBT are thankful for a lot of things. All of you who read…

  24. Andrew Bynum speculation reaches new, ridiculous heights of stupidity

    Nov 21, 2012, 3:23 PM EST

    Andrew Bynum

    This shouldn’t even be a story. But we’re here discussing it because with Andrew Bynum nothing seems impossible, not even him needing another knee surgery and missing the rest of the season. And that combined with a doctor giving his opinion on a case where he has absolutely no direct knowledge of what is happening…

  25. Video: Nick Young’s ridiculous three. That falls, of course.

    Nov 21, 2012, 7:59 AM EST

    Nick Young was in fully Swaggy P mode Tuesday night, so that even when he takes a three pointer that would embarrass Kobe Bryant it goes in. Young was up against the shot clock here, still this shot had no right to go in. But it was that kind of night for Young.
