  1. Philadelphia to extend contract of coach Doug Collins

    May 29, 2012, 9:41 AM EDT

    DCollins_Sixers

    There was a time in the middle of the season when the Philadelphia 76ers were slumping and the report was the young team had tuned out its old coach Doug Collins. But during the playoffs, when they advanced to the second round, they were clearly on he same page. With that, Collins is expected to…

  2. Sixers’ season rests on matching energy, defense of Celtics

    May 18, 2012, 2:45 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers  v Boston Celtics - Game One

    Boston’s veterans came out playing in another gear in Game 3, leaving the Sixers standing by the side of the road looking confused. Rajon Rondo got wherever he wanted on the court and was aggressive doing so on his way to 23 points and 14 assists. Kevin Garnett looked young and quick while Elton Brand…

  3. Video: Spencer Hawes talks Sixers/Celtics series, Garnett

    May 16, 2012, 3:24 PM EDT

    Chicago Bulls v Philadelphia 76ers - Game Six

    Spencer Hawes swung by NBC’s SportsTalk yesterday to talk some Sixers and Celtics with host Erik Kuselias. And yes, Hawes said was surprised that Kevin Garnett got called for the illegal screen with 10 seconds left — he said it was a good call, just one you don’t normally get at that point. He also…

  4. Celtics 92 Sixers 91: Tell us you didn’t see this coming

    May 12, 2012, 11:25 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers  v Boston Celtics - Game One

    Stop us if you’ve heard this one before. The Boston Celtics play badly for 2.5 quarters, scrap and grind their way to get the deficit into reasonable territory, then turn on the jets while the other team does a series of remarkably stupid things, going away from everything that had worked the entire game through,…

  6. Video: Iguodala’s game…. er, series-winning coast-to-coast drive

    May 11, 2012, 7:55 AM EDT

    Andre Iguodala,

    That’s about as exciting an ending of a game as you are going to see. It started when rather than try to run out the clock and try to draw the foul himself with 7 seconds left, C.J. Watson (an 80.8 percent free throw shooter) passed the ball to Omer Asik, who tried to score…

  7. Four 3-1 series, do we see four series closeouts Tuesday? No.

    May 8, 2012, 1:47 PM EDT

    Atlanta Hawks v Boston Celtics - Game Four

    Four games — every one of them featuring a team up 3-1 in a best-of-seven series. Tuesday night could see four series close out in the NBA playoffs. Not likely. We’re not sure who, but someone will push the series forward to a Game 6. One team will lose some days off to rest. That…

  9. Report: Joakim Noah out for Game 5, Bulls in heap of trouble

    May 7, 2012, 7:50 AM EDT

    Joakim Noah

    Sorry Bulls’ fans, But Game 5 against the 76ers Tuesday could look a lot like Game 4, just with different logos on the floor. And that’s not good. Joakim Noah will be out for Game 5 Tuesday due to his ankle sprain, reports K.C. Johnson of the Chicago Tribune (via CSNChicago.com). The Bulls trail the…

  10. NBA Playoffs: 76ers take 3-1 series lead over depleted Bulls

    May 6, 2012, 4:22 PM EDT

    Spencer Hawes

    You’ve gotta feel for the Chicago Bulls right now. After going 50-16 in the regular season to secure the Eastern Conference’s best record, the Bulls watched their best player tear his ACL with just over a minute remaining in Game 1 of the series, and Game 3 saw Joakim Noah go down with an ankle…

  11. Sixers 79 Bulls 74: A crushing Bulls collapse as a postseason of misery continues for Chicago

    May 4, 2012, 11:35 PM EDT

    Philadelphia 76ers v Chicago Bulls - Game Two

    The Bulls had everything going for them. They were the number one seed, they had beaten all the contenders, they had homecourt advantage, the best defense, one of the best coaches, a superstar. And then it all went wrong. In Game 3, they had a 14-point lead, had everything going for them. They had gotten…

  12. Bulls vs. Sixers Game 3 likely sets tone for rest of series

    May 4, 2012, 2:30 PM EDT

    Bulls' Gibson walks off the court as the 76ers celebrate a basket during Game 2 of their NBA Eastern Conference quarter-final playoff in Chicago

    Does anybody really know what to expect for Game 3 between the Bulls and Sixers? Would it surprise you to see the Bulls and their defense return to form, shut down the Sixers and scrape out an ugly, gritty win? Would it surprise you to see Lou Williams have one of those nights he can’t…

  13. Report: Lou Williams to opt out of deal, become free agent

    Apr 23, 2012, 12:23 PM EDT

    Shelvin Mack, Lou Williams

    If James Harden were not James Harden and the runaway winner for Sixth Man of the Year, Lou Williams could win that award. He comes off the bench to lead Philadelphia in scoring — the first bench guy to lead a team in scoring since Dell Curry (or as Stephen calls him, pops) — and…

  14. Sixers CEO uses Twitter to ask fans who team should keep

    The 76ers have some tough offseason decisions to make – do you re-sign Spencer Hawes? Do you see what the market will offer for Andre Iguodala (again)? Elton Brand is entering the last year of his deal, can you move him? Every day, Sixers fans are playing GM on Twitter anyway, so Sixers CEO Adam…

    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…

  16. 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…

  18. 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…

    Miami Heat's LeBron James dribbles the ball in the first half of their NBA basketball game against the New York Knicks in Miami

    So much for the little rest stop in Orlando. It was fun. The breakneck pace of the NBA’s condensed post-lockout season picks up again Tuesday night. The pedal goes to the metal and we head for the playoffs. Before the engines fully rev up again, we’re going to take stock. But rather than just give…

    With no games after Thursday, we don’t have a lot of movement in the standings this week, but we tie in some All-Star Weekend notes and look ahead at the second half for teams. 1. Heat (27-7, last week ranked 1). LeBron James’ All-Star performance is what fans seem to expect from him — 36…

  22. 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…

  23. 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…

  24. 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…

  25. Spencer Hawes worked out with Shawn Kemp this summer

    Jan 10, 2012, 1:36 PM EDT

    shawn_kemp

    Stop laughing. This is not a joke. There was a time when everybody was a Shawn Kemp fan. Back in the days of his high-top fade he was as ferocious a dunker as the league has ever seen and force in the paint, a guy with the skills to grab the rebound and go coast-to-coast.…
