Philadelphia 76ers

  1. Thursday And-1 links: “Linsane in the Membrane”

    Feb 16, 2012, 11:45 AM EDT

    Sacramento Kings v New York Knicks

    Here is our daily 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). “Linsane in the Membrane” — Jeremy Lin gets the Cypress Hill treatment. And it works. Best Lin song yet (via PBT’s own @HPbasketball) Here is…

  2. Baseline to Baseline recaps: There are days the Magic look good

    Feb 16, 2012, 9:14 AM EDT

    Andre Iguodala, Philadelphia

    What you missed while realizing your Valentine’s Day could have gone worse…. Knicks 100, Kings 85: The perfect storm that is Jeremy Lin continues, and it is our game of the night. Hawks 101, Suns 99: Our own Brett Pollakoff was at this game and filed a report. But that doesn’t mean we won’t give…

  3. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Dallas can still close out games

    Feb 14, 2012, 7:35 AM EDT

    Dirk Nowitzki

    What you missed while wondering why a man would try to rob a store wearing only chocolate and peanut butter… Mavericks 96, Clippers 92: What do you need to do to win in tight fourth quarters in the NBA? Execute. For example, don’t turn the ball over — the Clippers has seven fourth quarter turnovers.…

  4. Hawks Josh Smith ticked about All-Star Game snub

    Feb 13, 2012, 8:31 PM EDT

    Josh Smith of the Atlanta  Hawks walks off the court against the Chicago Bulls during the second half of Game 2 of their NBA Eastern Conference second round playoff basketball game in Chicago

    Josh Smith should have been an All-Star. He has stepped up his play with Al Horford out and is giving the Hawks 15.9 points, 9.3 rebounds, 3.3 assists and 2.1 blocks per game, and the Hawks are your four seed in the East at 18-10. Hard to look the other way. But the reserve All-Star…

  5. NBA Power Rankings: Spurs advancing, Heat still on top

    Feb 13, 2012, 3:22 PM EDT

    Miami Heat v Atlanta Hawks

    I’m beginning to wonder: Will the Eastern Conference Finals be the real NBA finals this year? Feels that way some days. 1. Heat (21-7, last week ranked 1) The Magic and Knicks combined to shoot 85 threes against the Heat in two nights. The Heat’s defensive energy does that to teams, makes them settle (although…

  6. Video: Chris Paul drains game winner in Philly

    Feb 11, 2012, 11:59 AM EDT

    Chris Paul

    Chris Paul is good. Ridiculously good. Andre Iguodala played about as good of defense as you can on Chris Paul on the final play in Philadelphia last night, and Paul twisted, turned then faded away and drained the game winner for the Clippers like a cold-blooded assassin. There should be no debate about who is…

  7. Who got snubbed? Some All-Star roster changes

    Feb 9, 2012, 10:50 PM EDT

    Rajon Rondo

    The All-Star rosters are out. The NBA coaches — who select the All-Star reserves — went with the old guard, the tried and true, and the guys whose names we know. Whether or not their play merited it this year. They ignored younger players who deserved it this year. There should be changes. Here are…

  8. Your NBA All-Star reserves announced, coaches went safe

    Feb 9, 2012, 7:24 PM EDT

    Kevin Love

    The fans picked the five starters, but this week the coaches voted to name the reserves to the All-Star Game in Orlando. And the coaches played it safe. They went with the old names they new not the future stars. They went with veteran Joe Johnson and left out Rajon Rondo. They left out Paul…

  9. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Magic cool off Heat

    Feb 9, 2012, 9:24 AM EDT

    Miami Heat v Orlando Magic

    What you missed while watching a guy get bit in the face by a dog on live television… Magic 102, Heat 89: Maybe the Magic owner should tell the media he doesn’t want to trade Dwight Howard before every game. Orlando played the game it wants to play — good defense (especially challenging in the…

  10. Griffin, Irving headline pool of players for Rising Stars game

    Feb 8, 2012, 2:38 PM EDT

    Rookie John Wall, of the Washington Wiza

    The NBA is trying to change the fortunes of what used to be the overlooked and uninteresting All-Star weekend Rookie Challenge (where the rookies played the sophomores). This year TNT’s Charles Barkley and Shaquille O’Neal are picking teams playground style (Team Shaq and Team Chuck) from a pool of rookies and sophomores — and the…

  11. Wednesday’s And-1 links: It’s going to cost you to see Jeremy Lin

    Feb 8, 2012, 11:45 AM EDT

    Jeremy Lin Knicks

    Here is our daily 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). You want to see Jeremy Lin play for the Knicks? It’s going to cost you. Larry Bird says he and Red Auerbach are about loyalty,…

  12. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Jeremy Lin is king of New York

    Feb 7, 2012, 8:58 AM EDT

    Jeremy Lin Knicks

    What you missed while thinking that even though you didn’t love Madonna’s halftime show at the Super Bowl, it was better than the Black Eyed Peas doing Tron or whatever it was the year before…. 76ers 95, Lakers 90: It was the Kobe Bryant and Lou Williams show, and it was our game of the…

  13. Lakers live by the Kobe, lose by the Kobe (and Lou Williams)

    Feb 7, 2012, 1:20 AM EDT

    Kobe Bryant, Andrew Bynum, Lakers,

    Philadelphia keeps answering every question asked of them. Can they win against the best teams? They beat the Bulls, Hawks and Magic last week… and now you can add the Lakers to the list after a 95-90 76ers win Monday night. But Philly doesn’t have a superstar, who is going to score late in the…

  14. Friday And-1 links: Even the Mavs realize OKC is very good

    Feb 3, 2012, 11:25 AM EDT

    Kendrick Perkins, Kevin Durant, Russell Westbrook

    Here is our daily 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). Dallas’ Jason Terry says what we all already knew: Oklahoma City is the team to beat in the West. Lou Williams and the art of…

  15. PBT’s All-Star reserves — no Celtics, no Mavs, no apologies

    Feb 2, 2012, 8:56 PM EDT

    Kevin Love

    This is the hard part. And the fun part. Picking the NBA All-Star game reserves. The voters picked the starting five from each team, but picking the reserves is a balancing act of rewarding good players and making sure the teams doing well get represented. You can’t make this omelet without breaking some eggs, and…

  16. The 76ers are legit. But can they win big playoff games?

    Feb 2, 2012, 2:22 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Miami Heat

    The Philadelphia 76ers beat the Chicago Bulls Wednesday night. Yes, a Bulls team without Luol Deng or Richard Hamilton, but still the team with the best record in the east and the reigning MVP Derrick Rose. As I said in the recaps, this was another clear sign that the Sixers are legit. They are a…

  17. Baseline to Baseline recaps: The Sixers are legit

    Feb 2, 2012, 5:52 AM EDT

    iguodala

    What you missed while rock climbing with your 2-year-old strapped to your back… Sixers 98, Bulls 82: The 76ers are legit. That fast start wasn’t the soft schedule, they are a quality squad. Good ball movement will beat even the best defense, and that’s what the story was here. They have balance — five guys…

  18. NBA Power Rankings: Top spot now Thunderstruck

    Jan 30, 2012, 2:14 PM EDT

    Russell Westbrook, Kris Humphries

    The top three teams remain the same, just trading places, because they are the three best teams in the league right now. But all three also have long road trips coming up, which should test them. 1. Thunder (16-3, last week ranked No. 3). They are “only” fifth in point-per-possession differential in the league, but…

  19. Report: Sixers trying to trade for Amare Stoudemire

    Jan 29, 2012, 4:19 PM EDT

    Amare Stoudemire

    The Philadelphia 76ers are one of the more surprising teams in the NBA this season considering they’ve leapt out to a 14-6 record and currently lead the Atlantic Division by four games at this early juncture in the season. In an attempt to prove that they’re in it for the long haul, though, they’re apparently…

  20. Video: Andre Iguodala with the self-assisted dunk

    Jan 29, 2012, 2:01 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Miami Heat

    I can hear JaVale McGee now, “Why doesn’t he get ripped for this?” Because he did it in traffic, not a breakaway, and you know he’s not putting style over substance. His team wins. Here is Philadelphia’s Andre Iguodala with the pass off the backboard to himself for the follow up dunk. Man that is…

  21. Blake Griffin heads 2012 rookie deal extension class

    Jan 27, 2012, 2:24 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers Blake Griffin slam dunks against Memphis Grizzlies Hamed Haddadi of Iran and Dante Cunningham during the first half of their NBA basketball game in Los Angeles

    Derrick Rose and Russell Westbrook got theirs. Kevin Love got a deal, as did Danilo Gallinari. Eric Gordon and Brook Lopez did not. And nobody seriously considered giving Michael Beasley one. It’s the first extension to the rookie contract — the first chance for NBA players to make serious, serious money. But as we saw…

  22. Report: Philadelphia signs Francisco Elson

    Jan 27, 2012, 10:48 AM EDT

    ELSON_FRANCISCO

    The 76ers are in need of some depth on the front line. Spencer Hawes (Achilles) and Nikola Vucevic (thigh) are out injured leaving them thin. So enter Francisco Elson, who has signed with the team according to HoopsHype. Elson, 35, has eight years in the NBA and spent last season with the Utah Jazz. He’s…

  23. Thursday And-1 links: Heat arena as homeless shelter?

    Jan 26, 2012, 11:38 AM EDT

    AAArena_Night

    Here is our daily 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). Some politicians want to force Miami’s AmericanAirlines Arena to house the homeless on non-game nights (that was part of the public financing plan). Feels like…

  24. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Indiana gets a little revenge

    Jan 26, 2012, 7:59 AM EDT

    Joakim Noah, Danny Granger, David West

    What you missed while being exhausted, just like Demi Moore…. Lakers 96, Clippers 91: This was feisty like a playoff game and was our game of the night. Pacers 95, Bulls 90: Last year in the first round of the playoffs the Bulls brushed the Pacers aside with ease — this game was evidence of…

  25. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Vintage Tim Duncan sighting

    Jan 24, 2012, 2:54 AM EDT

    New Orleans Hornets' Jack puts his head in his hands after being called for a foul during their NBA basketball game in New Orleans

    What you missed while getting that nail you didn’t know you shot into your head removed… Celtics 87, Magic 56: Don’t go overboard with any “the Celtics are back” hype yet, but they got a quality win in our game of the night. Spurs 104, Hornets 102: New Orleans loses a lot of games but…
