Philadelphia 76ers

  1. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Celtics smack Heat around. Again.

    Apr 11, 2012, 9:19 AM EDT

    Boston Celtics v Miami Heat

    What you missed while eating a pizza stuffed with hot dogs in the crust (no, that does not come with a free side of angioplasty)… Bulls 98, Knicks 86: Derrick Rose missed another game — that is now 23 this season — but the Bulls were the better team and got the win in our…

  2. Collins calls 76ers, young players “sensitive,” “fragile”

    Apr 9, 2012, 11:36 AM EDT

    Doug Collins, Kevin Fehr

    Well, this should help his standing in the locker room… Old school, hard-a** coach Doug Collins had lifted the 76ers up last season and this season had them on top of the Atlantic Division and playing great defense with a fast 20-9 start. Then that defense slipped, the offense tanked, there was a losing streak…

  3. Iguodala thinks all great scorers should be great defenders

    Apr 5, 2012, 2:28 PM EDT

    Andre Iguodala, Paul Pierce

    Andre Iguodala is using a lot of logic here. That’s never going to work. Iguodala is one of the game’s best wing defenders, and he told Sports Illustrated (via Ball Don’t Lie) that part of that comes from how he has been asked to be a go-to (or secondary) scorer over the years. And if…

  4. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Turns out LeBron can score a lot

    Apr 4, 2012, 8:55 AM EDT

    Miami Heat's James drives to the basket as his team plays against the Philadelphia 76ers during their NBA basketball game in Miami

    What you missed while watching Baylor win the national title and thinking Brittney Griner can flat out ball…. Heat 99, Sixers 93: The Heat needed a win and they had LeBron James in a scoring mood — those things go together like Oreos and milk for Miami. The result was James putting up a season…

  5. The Nine Circles of Bobcats Hell

    Mar 31, 2012, 1:00 PM EDT

    hellrufus

    The Bobcats are in Hell. Not literally. They’re still alive. They still get paid. They’re operational. They’re not tortured with fire. Other than that, though, yeah, pretty hell like. The team is on pace for historic levels of failure. It is literally just about as bad as it can get. There is nearly no reason…

  6. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Drama with the Lakers? Shocking.

    Mar 28, 2012, 8:53 AM EDT

    Los Angeles Lakers v Golden State Warriors

    What you missed while thinking you don’t hate your job as much as this guy… Lakers 104, Warriors 101: What’s a Laker win without more drama? During the game the drama was the Lakers not pulling away against an undersized Golden State side, then the Warriors fighting back from a double digits deficit in the…

  7. Sixers likely to be without Andre Iguodala Tuesday vs. Cavs

    Mar 27, 2012, 1:01 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Miami Heat - Game Five

    Earlier this season it seemed like nobody was going to catch the 76ers atop the Atlantic division. Unless they struggled and came back to the pack. Which is exactly what they did. Now they are tied with Boston for the division lead (and the four seed, meaning you get to avoid Miami and Chicago in…

  8. Tuesday And-1 links: Delonte West, Lamar Odom go to the zoo

    Mar 27, 2012, 11:25 AM EDT

    Lamar Odom

    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) — done in bullet point form. Because bloggers love bullet points. • Delonte West and Lamar Odom went to the zoo. That went about as…

  9. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Are the Hawks and Jazz still playing?

    Mar 26, 2012, 3:37 AM EDT

    Joe Johnson, Marvin Williams

    What you missed while welcoming Don Draper back into your life… Thunder 103, Heat 87: Kevin Durant outdueled LeBron James (making a nice MVP case), but the bigger concern for Miami should be that Kendrick Perkins and Serge Ibaka combined to drop 35 on them. Matt Moore has a lot more as this was our…

  10. It’s OK if there’s no mania behind Jimmer

    Mar 24, 2012, 1:47 PM EDT

    Jimmer Fredette , Kurt Thomas, Nolan Smith

    “The first time he didn’t play [on Feb. 2 against Portland], people were calling the paper and pitching their theories,” said Jason Jones, the Kings’ beat writer for The Sacramento Bee. “People don’t want to believe that he might not be ready to play. They want to believe Keith has it in for him.” The…

  11. Mickael Pietrus injured after hard fall, released from hospital

    Mar 24, 2012, 12:15 PM EDT

    Mickael Pietrus

    UPDATE March 24, 12:15 pm: This has to be taken as good news — Pietrus stayed behind the team and spent the night in Philadelphia, but not in the hospital. He now has been cleared to return to Boston, reports A. Sherrod Blakely of CSNNE.com. Which is very good news. He may miss a game…

  12. The “Violence Against Blake Griffin” situation

    Mar 23, 2012, 12:00 PM EDT

    Blake Griffin

    He’s asking for it. OK, stop, that right there. That’s me trying to snag your attention with some sort of bombastic statement. I can assure you my position is more nuanced than this phrase, which by the way, in the context of violence of any sort — on-court, off-court, sexual, non-sexual — should never, ever…

  13. Wednesday And-1 links: Who are the NBA’s best floppers?

    Mar 21, 2012, 11:10 AM EDT

  14. Baseline to Baseline recaps: The Bulls are beating everybody

    Mar 20, 2012, 9:08 AM EDT

    Dwight Howard, Joakim Noah

    What you missed while getting emails from your dead friend…. Bulls 85, Magic 59: Chicago is now 10-4 this season when Derrick Rose sits and now have beaten the Heat and Magic without him in the last week. Credit where credit is due — they have been playing the best basketball in the NBA for…

  15. Report: Sixers buy out contract of Andres Nocioni

    Mar 17, 2012, 1:33 AM EDT

    Andres Nocioni, Jimmer Fredette, DeMarcus Cousins

    The 76ers had moved past Andres Nocioni — he had touched the court just once in the last seven games, and that was for a four-minute stretch. He’s played 56 minutes all season. So it shouldn’t come as a shock that the Sixers have bought out his contract Friday, as reported by Dei Lynam at…

  16. Wednesday And-1 links: Calipari to Wizards, other rumors

    Mar 14, 2012, 11:56 AM EDT

    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). John Calipari to coach the Wizards after Kentucky loses in the NCAA Tournament finals? Let’s just say it is out there and the guy who…

  17. Baseline to Baseline recaps: What kind of team are the Knicks?

    Mar 12, 2012, 4:07 AM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v New York Knicks

    What you missed while thinking if you are going to have two wives you may want to get off Facebook…. Lakers 97, Celtics 94: This rematch of a couple recent finals — which looked like those finals if you squinted really hard — was our game of the day. Sixers 106, Knicks 94: How this…

  19. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Night of the living game-winning shot

    Mar 8, 2012, 9:24 AM EDT

    Trevor Booker

    What you missed while realizing you figured out who is going to win the Darwin Award this year…. Sixers 103, Celtics 71: This battle for the top spot in the Atlantic division — and the four seed at least in the playoffs, allowing a team to avoid Miami and Chicago in the first round —…

  20. Evan Turner, Sixers defend first place in Atlantic Division

    Mar 7, 2012, 11:49 PM EDT

    Evan Turner

    The winner of this contest was going to have the lead the Atlantic Division when the final horn sounded, so we expected a game with a playoff feel. Instead, we got another lockout game — Boston looked tired and flat on the second night of a road back to back and got routed by Philadelphia,…

  21. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Kevin Love outduels Blake Griffin

    Mar 6, 2012, 7:43 AM EDT

    Minnesota Timberwolves forward Kevin Love is fouled by Los Angeles Clippers forward Reggie Evans in Minneapolis

    What you missed while buying way more Girl Scout cookies than you really should… Thunder 95, Mavericks 92: Oklahoma City scored the final eight points to win another close contest, which was our game of the night. Timberwolves 95, Clippers 94: With all their mistakes late, I have no idea how the Timberwolves pulled this…

  22. NBA Power Rankings: Bulls grab top spot by the horns

    Mar 5, 2012, 1:33 PM EDT

    Taj Gibson, Derrick Rose, Joakim Noah,

    The top three are pretty much set, it’s just a matter of who is playing the best among them at this moment. Right now it’s Chicago. The bottom three are pretty much locked in, too, but the Bobcats have really grabbed hold of the last spot and made it their own. 1. Bulls (31-8, last…

  23. Friday And-1 links: Ramon Sessions trade talk and more

    Mar 2, 2012, 11:06 AM EDT

    Anthony Parker, Ramon Sessions

  24. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Time to fear Brook Lopez?

    Feb 29, 2012, 6:30 AM EDT

    Deshawn Stevenson

    What you missed while you were spilling beer on the German Chancellor…. Nets 93, Mavericks 92: Dallas, you did a terrible job of trying to impress Deron Williams and make him want to join your roster. Starting late in the third quarter the Mavericks went on an 0-13 shooting streak, they didn’t have a field…

  25. Sixers’ Spencer Hawes out at least two more weeks

    Feb 28, 2012, 12:43 PM EDT

    Spencer Hawes, James Johnson, Amir Johnson

    It’s strange to say this, but the 76ers really need Spencer Hawes back. Philadelphia has lost five straight and not having Hawes is a key reason — he was the guy that swung the ball side-to-side in their offense and made it flow, with him out the ball gets stuck more often and Philly is…
