With Andre Iguodala, Elton Brand and Lou Williams held out for the game you would think that the Sixers would have a difficult time finding a way to score in tonight’s contest against the Milwaukee Bucks. That was not the case as the Sixers went on to defeat the Bucks 90-85. Philadelphia’s Evan Turner filled [...]

MILWAUKEE -- Ersan Ilyasova has statistically improved in nearly every area of his game this season. And soon, the 24-year-old Turkish-born forward for the Milwaukee Bucks may have the hardware to prove just how much better he has become.
Though the Bucks find themselves out of the playoffs for the second consecutive year, Ilyasova's performance this season has him atop the...
It wasn't quite a run-of-the-mill rookie season for Milwaukee Bucks' rookies Tobias Harris and Jon Leuer.
With the summer's NBA Lockout shortening the regular season in 2012 from 82 games to 66 games, not to mention cutting valuable practice time in the offseason, the league's rookies may have been the ones who suffered most, forcing their transition to the NBA to...
This could have been a crucial game in determining which team would earn the final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.
Instead, the Philadelphia 76ers are preparing for their second consecutive postseason while the Milwaukee Bucks are getting ready for another long summer going into their matchup Wednesday night.
Philadelphia (34-30) had a three-game lead over the Bucks (31...
MILWAUKEE -- What only a week ago was supposed to be a critical game between the Milwaukee Bucks and Philadelphia 76ers on Wednesday night was instead a rather meaningless one. With the 76ers having already nudged out the Bucks for the eighth and final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference, neither team had much at stake in the Bradley Center. But despite using patched-up...
In what could be a significant blow to the hopes and dreams of fantasy owners, Andre Iguodala and Elton Brand will not play the final two games of the season. Elton will be rested and Iggy because he’s banged up but mostly because he needs the rest, as well. I was DM’ing on Twitter the other day with a reader and the issue of when to end H2H playoffs came up. Simply put, I compare...
The first-round playoff series between the Bulls and 76ers got much more exciting thanks to some comments from Evan Turner. The Sixers guard was asked last weekend what it would mean to play the Bulls in the playoffs, and he answered candidly.
“It means we’re dodging the tougher team. That’s what I think,” Turner told the Delaware County Daily Times.
“I think we’ll be...
Philadelphia 76ers guard and 2010 #2 overall pick Evan Turner is looking forward to a potential match-up against his hometown Chicago Bulls. After Turner scored a career high 29 points on the Milwaukee Bucks last night, I asked Turner about the potential first round playoff match-up with the Bulls.
“We probably match-up better with them, they’re by far the best team in the...
When the Philadelphia 76ers drafted Evan Turner #2 overall out of Ohio State in 2010, they thought they were selecting a franchise cornerstone. Finishing his college basketball career with the Buckeyes, he was as highly decorated as a player can be- sweeping all the national individual awards.
His rookie year did anything but live up to the hype however. Turner really struggled...

Kevin Durantt dropped 32 on the Nuggets last night, Kobe’s got the Kings tonight. Advantage Durant. Big time. Fun little competition to follow in meaningless games. Kobe needs 38 points tonight to win it. I love how Kobe plays it off like he doesn’t care. Sure you don’t, that’s why you’ll take 30 shots tonight. Guaranteed...
Despite a largely rough final two months of the season, the Philadelphia 76ers have played well down the stretch.
The visiting 76ers hope to build even more momentum heading into the playoffs with a fifth consecutive victory in Thursday night's regular-season finale against the Detroit Pistons.
Philadelphia (35-30) had a four-game lead in the Atlantic Division on Feb. 13, but...
AUBURN HILLS, Mich. -- While the playoff-bound Philadelphia 76ers rested a handful of their regulars, the Detroit Pistons' season finale was a tale of two Bens. Reserve guard Ben Gordon poured in 26 points, including eight 3-pointers, as the Pistons cruised to a 108-86 victory over the 76ers at The Palace on Thursday night. Center Ben Wallace, playing perhaps the final game...
