Philadelphia 76ers could not close out the Chicago Bulls Wednesday night at
home despite 26 points from Jrue Holiday and, surprisingly, outrebounding the
Bulls 44-39. The Bulls dominated the charity stripe (24-26), played solid
defense, and took care of the basketball. Here are a few observations from the
and Turner continue to provide the offense for this ball club. Holiday scored
16 of his 26 in the first half by shooting over, around, and through the small
tandem of Nate Robinson and Marquis Teague. Turner had a good all around game.
He rebounded well, played good defense, and made both of his free throws.
Backhanded compliments aside, this may have been Holiday and Turner’s best game
in regards to chemistry. It has the same feel to it as when Wade and LeBron
were trying to gel together. I don’t think they are as lethal as those two, but
if given time, the Sixers might have one of the best backcourts in the league.
Noah taunted the Sixers’ crowd all night. Unfortunately, the Sixers could not
get him to shut up. I tweeted about this during the game: Philadelphia fans would fall in love with him if he were a Sixer.
Noah spent the majority of the night setting solid screens, playing great help defense, and getting to the line. Noah hit a backbreaking elbow jumper with the shot clock running out to give the Bulls a seven-point lead with 1:19 left in the game. Just before that, he threw a beautiful pass to Deng on a backdoor cut. This was
a game that Noah wanted the All-Star game voters to see.
Sixers held Carlos Boozer in check. He finished with 5 points and 6 rebounds in
26 minutes as he sat and watched Deng and Noah close out the fourth quarter.
Most players who make $15 million per year should be on the court in crunch time.
His numbers look healthy (14.5 ppg, 9.9 rpg, 16.8 PER), but many think the
Bulls are ready to amnesty Boozer at the end of the season. Should the Sixers
attempt to sign the thick, undersized power forward from Duke? What’s the worst
that could happen?

We here at That NBA Lottery Pick love killer crossovers and the one that Philadelphia 76ers guard Jrue Holiday pulled off last night was a doozy.Watch as Holiday breaks Brandon Knight's ankles and sends him down to the court:
Andrew Bynum's rehabilitation from bone bruises in both knees has been wet and woolly.
The Philadelphia 76ers center, if he can even be called that since he has not suited up for the team in a game, has made waves with his funky hairdos. For the most part, the 25-year-old has rocked a growing afro, but he did flatten it into an even more unique hairstyle earlier this season...
WHAT A WORLD
Police in Philadelphia have released graphic surveillance video of the shooting of a Bulls fan that occurred in a subway after the 76ers-Bulls game on Wednesday.
KICK UP YOUR FEET
It’s been quite a day for Andrew Bynum. He was at the Penthouse Club wearing a white long-sleeve shirt. Ironically, we’ve now found a photo of Bynum wearing what looks to be the very same shirt. It was uploaded to Instagram yesterday. According to the uploader, @DamePeriod: Nah yo. Bynum gotta die b. He got on house slippers and no socks at the bar smh That’s not a strip club...
Last night the Philadelphia 76ers balled up the Detroit Pistons 104-97 on the scoreboard and on the shelf life of their ankles. Jrue Holiday was bring the ball up court in the 3rd quarter when he gave Brandon Knight a killer crossover. It caused Knight to go to the ground, so all we can say to him is, "looking like a fool with your pants on the ground." Check out the...

Two Chicago Bulls fans bragging about the team’s win over the 76ers on Wednesday night were shot in Philadelphia after arguing with two other people while riding on a train.

Philadelphia Sixers fans aren’t the least bit amused that Andrew Bynum hasn’t been able to play even one game yet this season. They are frustrated and upset. Can’t say the same for Bynum, who continues to handle his injury with a carefree attitude. Here’s an excerpt from a recent interview with a Sixers Blog, “How much higher can the afro...
Philadelphia 76ers point guard Jrue Holiday, the team's leading scorer, will miss Friday's game against Indiana and probably will be sidelined for a few more games because of a sprained foot sustained on Wednesday, CSNPhilly.com reported Friday. Holiday played more than 40 minutes against the Bulls and scored 26 points, but does not know exactly when the injury occurred...
Andrew Bynum has yet to play in a game for the Philadelphia 76ers, which has left us with very little to talk about aside from his insane head of hair. The Sixers center has had some of the ugliest hairstyles you will ever see this season, including the Don King look and this ridiculous mop top. It has to be some sort of joke, right?
Unfortunately, it doesn’t sound like that is...
I like to be comfortable T…
Success at home in close games against the Chicago Bulls was key to the Philadelphia 76ers ousting the Eastern Conference's top seed in last season's playoffs.
Their recent surge at Wells Fargo Center seems rather similar.
The 76ers will be looking to make things a bit easier on themselves as they go for their eighth win in 10 home games Wednesday night against the Bulls...
