Philadelphia 76ers

  1. NBA Playoff Preview: Miami vs. Philadelphia

    Apr 14, 2011, 3:58 AM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Miami Heat

    SEASON RECORDS Heat:  58-24 (No. 2 seed) 76ers: 41-41  (No. 7 seed) SEASON SERIES Miami swept the season series, winning all three contests by an average of just over 10 points per game. If there’s a bright side for the Sixers, it’s that two of the three meetings came very early in the season, before…

  2. Video: Dwight Howard’s ally-opp on Jrue Holiday’s head

    Apr 12, 2011, 8:20 AM EDT

    Dwight Howard dunks on Jrue Holiday

    Dwight Howard said as he started to take off he told Jrue Holiday not to jump. Their both Adidas guys, Howard didn’t want to embarrass him. Howard was going to throw down a monster dunk and he knew it. All credit to Holiday for trying, for getting back on defense and making the effort to…

  3. Elton Brand has been playing with hand fracture

    Apr 5, 2011, 7:03 PM EDT

    BRAND_ELTON

    The New York Times’ Jonathan Abrams has the story: Elton Brand, who is experiencing a resurgent season with the surprising Philadelphia 76ers, has played nearly a month with a fracture in his left hand. The fracture was originally disclosed as an injury that would not prohibit Brand from playing, apparently out of concern that some…

  4. Sixers Lou Williams out for rest of regular season

    Apr 4, 2011, 1:44 PM EDT

    Lou Williams Jumper

    The Sixers — the one team in the bottom half of the East standings that can make a real series out of the first round — are not the same without Lou Williams off the bench. He is the best one-on-one player that team has. Sorry Iggy. But if the game is on the line…

  5. Sixers win, and are in

    Apr 2, 2011, 9:30 AM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Miami Heat

    The Philadelphia 76ers started the season 3-13. It was a disaster. It was time to blow it up, finally. Ed Stefanski was having his job called for. It was an unmitigated disaster. Then, they got better. Last night in a win over the Nets, the Sixers clinched a spot in the playoffs. Doug Collins has…

    The 52nd Annual GRAMMY Awards - Show

    The big story in Philly: Lou Williams and some others Sixers went to the Lil’ Wayne concert Saturday night before a noon-tipoff Sunday against the Kings. And the Sixers lost and some fans are blaming the night out (even though Jrue Holiday went and played well). This is mostly about Williams off shooting day, and…

  7. Video: Lou Williams three sends game to overtime for Sixers

    Mar 28, 2011, 8:18 AM EDT

    Louis Williams,  Hilton Armstrong

    There was a time, early in the season, when we wondered when the Sixers would start executing and making plays a the end of game and win a few close ones. Well, they are doing it quite well now. Even if it didn’t come out as planned here. Watch Lou Williams execute here, knocking down…

  8. Marcus Thornton does it again

    Mar 27, 2011, 7:00 PM EDT

    Thornton_Marcus

    The Kings have very little left to play for. The season has been a disaster from the get-go, with Tyreke Evans struggling through injury all season, the team chafing at DeMarcus Cousins’ immaturity, and the coaching staff looking lost at time. But perhaps the brightest spot outside of Cousins’ play has been the emergence of…

  9. Iggy says LeBron has peeled back on his intensity, physically

    Mar 26, 2011, 5:00 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Miami Heat

    Andre Iguodala was asked Friday if he’d noticed any changes in LeBron James‘ game since joining the Heat. His answer wasn’t what you’d expect: “I’ve only noticed one small thing,” Iguodala said before taking time to find the right words. “I shouldn’t say he doesn’t jump as high, because he does jump as high,” Iguodala…

  10. Wade’s stat stuffing brings Heat closer to 2nd seed

    Mar 26, 2011, 9:00 AM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Miami Heat

    The Heat brought it in the fourth against what you may not know is a surprisingly good Philadelphia 76ers squad in a 111-99 win. Sure, they’re not going to be headlining any Sunday afternoon nationally televised romps, but Doug Collins has put together a good team with solid chemistry, role players that can produce and…

  11. Blake Griffin is not gonna take it. No, he ain’t gonna take it. Anymore.

    Mar 17, 2011, 5:18 PM EDT

    Los Angeles Clippers v Charlotte Bobcats

    Blake Griffin, you want to know how you’ve really made it? When opposing bloggers — like Liberty Ballers Wednesday night — write things like this about you: Griffin flopped and bitched the entire night en route to a disappointing 14 points, 8 rebounds and 6 fouls. Both Elton Brand and the Sixers’ team defense/gameplan deserve…

  12. Video: Andre Iguodala is scaring rims

    Mar 9, 2011, 9:07 AM EDT

    AIguodala_dunk

    Andre Iguodala had an off game by his recent standards. Oh, sure he had 16 points, 10 assists and 4 rebounds — but he had triple doubles the two games before this. He is clearly slacking. The Sixers didn’t need his quite as much Tuesday as they rolled past the Indiana Pacers, but he still…

  13. Baseline to Baseline recaps: Andre Iguodala has got it going on. Again.

    Mar 7, 2011, 7:07 AM EDT

    Andre Iguodala, David Lee

    What you missed while staring at the earth’s two suns…. The Bulls beating the Heat and the Lakers thumping the Spurs were our two games of the day Sunday. In other action: Sixers 125, Warriors 117 (OT): Teams often exit Warriors games with gaudy statistics, so we’ll chalk Evan Turner’s 20 points up to that.…

  14. John Wall is one frustrated Wizard

    Feb 24, 2011, 10:28 AM EDT

    Jrue Holiday, John Wall

    “Until we find five guys that really want to fight, compete and care the whole time, it’s really going to be tough.” That was John Wall’s post-game comment after the Wizards got smoked by the Sixers Wednesday night. He’s frustrated. Good. He should be frustrated. If he were comfortable losing that would be a bigger…

  15. Former Sixer GM, current Magic executive Pat Williams diagnosed with cancer

    The Orlando Magic’s Pat Williams, one of the better known and more popular NBA executives around the league, has been diagnosed with cancer, the team announced Tuesday. Williams was the Philadelphia 76ers general manager for a dozen seasons through the 1970s and ‘80s, then went on to be part of the team that founded the…

    New feature here at PBT — which we are stealing from ProFootballTalk, and if we get the chance we’re going to take Florio’s lunch money, too —  that is a collection of links from things we find interesting (but didn’t turn into a full post). James Johnson likely will be assigned to the D-League by…

  17. Report: Andre Iguodala, Elton Brand unlikely to be traded

    Jan 25, 2011, 12:29 PM EDT

    Andre Iguodala, Thaddeus Young, Jrue Holiday

    The Philadelphia 76ers are a better team than you think. Back 16 games into the season, when the Sixers were 3-13, there was a lot of talk about roster shakeups. Remember Andre Iguodala getting dragged into the Carmelo Anthony trade morass? There were calls (and maybe plans) to get Iguodala and Elton Brand out of…

  18. Tyrus Thomas suspended for elbowing Emeka Okafor’s face

    Jan 17, 2011, 11:46 AM EDT

    Tyrus Thomas

    With two and a half minutes left in the Bobcats loss Saturday to the Hornets, Tyrus Thomas went up for a rebound, came down with the ball and his elbows out, then, in trying to create space, swung his left elbow directly into the face of Emeka Okafor. He got the flagrant two foul for…

  19. Video: Turns out, Lou Williams can rap

    Jan 17, 2011, 11:29 AM EDT

    Lou Williams Jumper

    There are no shortage of NBA players who think they are rappers (and no shortage of MCs who think they can ball). Usually, this ends in disaster. Right, Kobe? But the Sixers sixth man Lou Williams…. not bad. Not bad at all.

  20. Video: Iggy’s no-look pass on the break

    Jan 12, 2011, 3:17 PM EDT

    AIguodala_dunk

    Andre Iguodala was back from injury last night, and looked a little rusty. That’s the 0-7 shooting part. But the Sixers are glad to have him because they need him, in part because he is such a threat in transition. Not just with the scoring (he can do that, too) but check out the pass…

  21. Don’t look now, but Jrue Holiday is hot

    Jan 6, 2011, 11:44 AM EDT

    Jrue Holiday, JaVale McGee

    Jrue Holiday outdueled the celebrated John Wall Wednesday night. Holiday, the sophomore, put up 26 points and had 9 assists, leading the Sixers to a win. That got some attention, but this isn’t a one-time thing, in his last seven games Holiday has averaged 20.2 points on 56 percent shooting, and 7.4 assists. What happened?…

  22. Allen Iverson says he is not broke, loving Turkey

    Jan 3, 2011, 3:49 PM EDT

    iverson-turkey

    There were all sorts of bets and pools on how long Allen Iverson was going to last in Turkey with Besiktas Cola Turka. You will be giving your money to the people who thought he would stick it out. Robert Huber of Philadelphia Magazine went to Turkey and tracked down Iverson (via TrueHoop), coming back…

  23. Iguodala out five games with Achilles tendinitis

    Dec 31, 2010, 3:07 PM EDT

    AIguodala_dunk

    A sore Achilles has hampered the Sixers Andre Iguodala all season, as a result he has been less explosive, which has led to a drop in shooting percentage (and with it scoring). He’s just not the same dynamic player. After missing the last two games due to Achilles tendinitis, the Sixers have announced that Iguodala…

  24. Steve Nash has an angry side

    Dec 30, 2010, 12:41 PM EDT

    Steve Nash

    Maybe it’s that stable Canadian upbringing, but Steve Nash is one of the most even-tempered guys in the league. Which is why when he loses it, you take notice. The Suns were not getting the breaks or calls late in Wednesday night’s loss to the Sixers — and that was a fourth straight loss for…

  25. Sixers Lou Williams to sit out back-to-back

    Dec 26, 2010, 5:30 PM EDT

    Louis Williams,  Hilton Armstrong

    The Sixers best player off the bench — guard Lou Williams — is getting the greatest Christmas gift of all: a new baby daughter. Because of that, he has been given off the Sunday and Monday back-to-back for the Sixers, according to Comcast Bay Area’s Matt Steinmetz (on twitter). Sunday the Sixers play Denver, Monday…
