Philadelphia 76ers

  1. Sixers not looking to make big trade as they wait for Bynum

    Feb 19, 2013, 10:21 AM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers introduce Andrew Bynum and Jason Richardson

    The plan in Philadelphia before the season started was to put Andrew Bynum on the court with Jrue Holiday and Evan Turner and see what they’ve got. That’s still the plan. Eventually. Bynum’s still not back so the most basic questions the Sixers have remain unanswered. So don’t expect the Sixers to go making a…

  2. Philadelphia 76ers to sign guard Jeremy Pargo for rest of season

    Feb 18, 2013, 2:35 PM EDT

    Jeremy Pargo

    The Philadelphia 76ers have struggled with injuries and they’ve struggled finding a useful backup point guard this season. Maalik Wayns had his shot…and shot 26 percent from the field with a PER of 2. Royal Ivey hasn’t been a whole lot better with a PER of 8.9. Although he wasn’t great on his 10-day contract…

    NBA All-Star Griffin of the Clippers dunks as teammate Durant and All-Star Noah of the Bulls look on during the 2013 NBA All-Star basketball game in Houston

    HOUSTON — You know it’s an All-Star Game and all the seriousness that entails when Dwight Howard is launching and hitting threes, Howard and Blake Griffin are pretending to do acrobatics between quarters and the understated Tim Duncan is wearing some bright green Adidas Crazy Fast shoes. “I think that’ll be the only time you…

    HOUSTON — Enough with the preliminaries — especially the pregame Ke$ha concert — let’s get on with the real show. Time for the 2013 NBA All-Star Game. We’ve got this show covered for you. First, over on the mothership NBC site is a running log of everything tweeted by myself, PBT’s Brett Pollakoff, as well…

  5. Raking up hardware already, Lillard wins All-Star Skills Competition

    Feb 16, 2013, 10:19 PM EDT

    Taco Bell Skills Challenge

    Consider this the first of a bunch of award Damian Lillard could be racking up. The Portland Trailblazers celebrated rookie won the All-Star Saturday Taco Bells Skills Competition. He seemed to embody the old John Wooden mantra of “be quick, don’t hurry.” “I think the biggest thing for me is to try to be too…

  6. Kobe is frustrated, not sure teammates feel the same way

    Feb 15, 2013, 9:59 AM EDT

    Dwight Howard, Kobe Bryant

    Kobe Bryant’s way of dealing with adversity is simply to work harder. Get up more shots, work on more moves, get better. If you are not up for a challenge improve until you are. The Lakers were not ready for the challenge of the Clippers Thursday night. For the Lakers (and their fans) it was…

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while looking at toys you can buy that would traumatize your child…. Celtics 71, Bulls 69: Man this game was ugly. You knew it was going to be low scoring — two defensive minded teams both missing the point guard that stirs their…

  8. Andrew Bynum feels pain in knee, but says it’s not a setback

    Feb 12, 2013, 8:49 AM EDT

    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

    If you were expecting to see Andrew Bynum on the court for Philadelphia in February, you may want to readjust your timetables. Bynum is running, cutting, moving laterally and taking shots from all over the floor he said. All good signs. Except he has had to slow those workouts because he said he felt pain…

  9. Baseline-to-Baseline recaps: Bobcats, Sessions end Celtics winning streak

    Feb 12, 2013, 8:36 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Charlotte Bobcats

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while looking at some really uncomfortable Valentines Day photos…. Bobcats 94, Celtics 91: A Celtics team on the second night of a back-to-back where the first game went three overtimes ran into a Bobcats that doesn’t have a lot going for it but…

    Blake Griffin

    When the Clippers have got it going — and facing a defense not quick enough or long enough to stop them — they can put on the best show in the NBA. That show came to Philadelphia on Monday and while the hometown fans watched their team get rolled (they could have used someone like…

  11. NBA Power Rankings: Finals rematch Thursday could be finals preview

    Feb 11, 2013, 9:30 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Oklahoma City Thunder

    Finally, here are the delayed regular Monday PBT NBA power rankings. We said this a lot during the NBA finals last year — if we see the Miami Heat and Oklahoma City Thunder face off in three of the next five NBA finals it shouldn’t be a shock. This season looks more and more like…

  12. In midst of slump, Evan Turner tries to shrug off trade rumors

    Feb 10, 2013, 3:30 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Boston Celtics

    There is the buzz — the Philadelphia 76ers are testing the trade waters for Evan Turner. Maybe just to gauge his market value, but they are asking around. There is the reality — Turner is in the middle of a shooting slump. In his last five games he is averaging 7.2 points a game on…

  13. Report: Philadelphia testing market for Evan Turner

    Feb 9, 2013, 12:31 PM EDT

    Evan Turner

    The idea was to pair Evan Turner on the wing with Jrue Holiday at the point, then put Andrew Bynum in the paint and suddenly you have the beginnings of a pretty good team in the East. And maybe that still works out, we have yet to see Andrew Bynum on the court and how…

  14. 2013 All-Star Saturday Skills Challenge participants announced

    Feb 7, 2013, 8:03 PM EDT

    Tony Parker

    Rockets Heat Basketball

    Welcome to PBT’s roundup of yesterday’s NBA games. Or, what you missed while trying out your stylish new Get Smart shoe-phone…. Heat 114, Rockets 108: What a fun finish. After collapsing in the finals last year against the Heat, James Harden exacted a little personal revenge. Harden was a one-man wrecking crew, scoring 36 points…

  16. Philadelphia 76ers guard Jason Richardson out for season with knee injury

    Feb 6, 2013, 8:46 PM EDT

    Jason Richardson

    The race for the 8-seed in the Eastern Conference might be won by whichever team can simply stay healthy. Boston has obviously suffered big blows, but Philadelphia is right there with them. Already missing Thaddeus Young for three weeks because of a hamstring strain and Andrew Bynum for who knows how long, the Sixers received even…

  17. Will Rockets make run at Andrew Bynum this summer? Will others?

    Feb 6, 2013, 3:05 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers introduce Andrew Bynum and Jason Richardson

    It’s part of the NBA’s new Collective Bargaining Agreement — it is better financially for a potential free agent to become a free agent and re-sign with his team than to just sign an extension. So even if a sure max player has no intention of leaving a team, he has to at least dip…

  18. Tuesday And-1links: Chris Paul could be back this weekend

    Chris Paul

    Here is our regular look around the NBA — links to stories worth reading and notes to check out (stuff that did not get its own post here at PBT) — done in bullet point form. Because bloggers love bullet points. • The Clippers have lost seven of nine and need something to get them…

  19. Thaddeus Young out three weeks with hamstring strain

    Feb 5, 2013, 1:25 PM EDT

    Thaddeus Young

    Philadelphia is going to be without their best big man this season — their second leading scorer and leading rebounder — for about the next three weeks. Thaddeus Young will be out that long with a strained hamstring suffered Monday night against the Orlando Magic, reports Dei Lynam at CSNPhilly.com. Thaddeus Young underwent an MRI…

  20. Sixers Nick Young with breakaway 360 slam (VIDEO)

    Feb 5, 2013, 10:35 AM EDT

    Nick Young

    It is moments like this where I wish there was a “Doug Collins cam” that just tracked the reactions of the old-school, no-frills Philly coach. I bet he thoroughly enjoyed Nick Young‘s dunk. Young had the steal and the breakaway early in the Sixers rout of the Magic and since he had the time he…

Pacers 111, Bulls 101: If you were expecting a defense struggle between two of the top three defenses in the Association… well, sorry. There wasn’t a lot of defense and…

  22. Thaddeus Young leaves game with hamstring injury (VIDEO)

    Feb 4, 2013, 9:27 PM EDT

    Thaddeus Young

    Monday night was an easy win for the Sixers — they raced out to a 22-6 lead and really the rest of the game was pretty sloppy and ugly — but it came with a price for Philly: They lost Thaddeus Young to a hamstring injury. You can see what happened in the video above…

  23. NBA Power Rankings: Spurs still riding along in top slot

    Feb 4, 2013, 2:46 PM EDT

    Tim Duncan, Tony Parker

    Not a lot of changes at the very top, although we see the Knicks and Nuggets making climbs with winning streaks. At the bottom the Magic have lost 9 in a row, lost Big Baby for the season and are about to trade their best shooter in the next couple of weeks. Do they ever…

    Jan 31, 2013, 1:50 PM EDT

    Newly-acquired Philadelphia 76ers player Bynum smiles during a news conference at the National Constitution Center in Philadelphia

    Let’s get this out of the way first — this is not a setback. I know people can get skittish when you talk Andrew Bynum and knees, but things are still on track. This was planned, it was the next step in the process and the timeline for Bynum to finally make his debut with…
