Ready to watch Sixers games that really matter?

Source | 11 hrs ago.

The shots dried up for the Knicks in the fourth quarter and the Sixers somehow came back to win 118-110, but the emotional damage was mostly done at that point. It's been six years since we watched the Sixers in the postseason, but it's been a lot longer than that - I couldn't even tell you how long, exactly - since we watched them with expectation. My main reaction to watching Andre Iguodala hit two free throws to sink the Bulls in Game 6 in 2012 was to laugh hysterically.

Time for Markelle Fultz? Now makes plenty of sense

Source | 1 day ago.

"It's all internal discussions we're going through right now and just trying to accurately assess his situation," head coach Brett Brown said last week (see story). Fultz has gradually increased his workouts and his jump shot looks much closer to the silky version we witnessed from him at Washington and not the junky one from earlier this season. The Sixers would certainly have to believe those moves would look better in a uniform, and now is the perfect time to ease the 19-year-old back into the mix.

Sixers fail biggest test of the season

Source | 2 days ago.

At the beginning of the season, if you'd told Sixers fans that in mid-March, they'd be going down to the wire at home against the third seed in the Eastern Conference but coming up just short, you'd consider it a pretty reasonable state of affairs. It was the Sixers' first loss at the Wells Fargo Center in 2018, and the first (true) home game this season where the Sixers never really felt in control. In many ways, Philly was lucky to only lose by three -- they turned the ball over 21 times (eight by Joel Embiid alone), gave up 14 offensive rebounds, and allowed the Pacers 20 more shots overall on the game.
