The Sixers are starting to cool off. After last night's road loss in Boston, the Sixers look doomed during their upcoming stretch: eight games in 13 days, many against projected playoff teams (Lakers, Nets, Hawks, Mavs, Pacers, and Bulls). After that they've got an even tougher west coast trip. If the Sixers want to remain within striking distance of home court advantage, a genuine possibility given Atlanta’s inexperience, New York’s unsustainable hot shooting, and Brooklyn’s defensive problems, they will have to work on a few things.   Get Bynum back on the court    Obviously Bynum’s 24 year-old knees were a concern at the time the Sixers decided to swap Iguodala for a dominant inside force with maturity issues. When healthy, Bynum can dominate the offensive glass, something the Sixers definitely need (28th in possessions per game). He should also strengthen their interior defense. It will be interesting to see how Doug Collins will manage the rotation of the big men.  The Holiday is not over… yet The eyeball test shows Holiday is putting up great numbers so far. His raw numbers of 17.7 ppg, 3.8 rpg, 9.0 apg, and adding a steal and a half make him the Sixer most likely to get an All-Star nod. However, him and ET both need the ball in their hands to be at their best. They have had their moments of genius, but they need to be most consistent on offense. The Sixers are lucky to have a surplus of capable floor generals. They just have to figure it out.   Solomon Feraidoon @feraidoonPhilly
