PHILADELPHIA 76ERS NEWS

6 for the Final 9 of Tank 2.0

Last night, despite a super-human effort from emerging Rookie of the Year candidate Nerlens Noel (30 points; 14 boards; 70% shooting form the field), the 76ers lost their 55th contest of Tank 2.0.  Instead of analyzing the fact that Brett Brown’s squad missed their last 10 shots of the 3rd quarter last night or how they trailed the playoff bound Clippers by 32 during the final...

Robert Covington puts Andre Miller on a poster

The 76ers may not win a ton of games, but they do produce their fair share of highlights. Robert Covington is no stranger to that, and now, neither is Andre Miller. Hey Bobby, have you always treated your professors so poorly? The Sixers have so many athletes like Ish Smith—who threw that lob—€”Covington, Nerlens Noel, Jerami Grant, etc. that we're starting to see plays like...

76ers-Nuggets Preview

Fresh off experiencing his first extended road trip as interim coach of the Denver Nuggets, Melvin Hunt couldn't help from smiling when discussing the comforts of home. That shouldn't come as much of a surprise given that Hunt has won four of the five games he's coached at Pepsi Center.

Isaiah Canaan almost makes Jarrett Jack fall over

The Brooklyn Nets may have had the last laugh during Saturday's win over the Philadelphia 76ers, but Isaiah Canaan had the loudest one. What he did to Jarrett Jack should not be legal. That's not even a crossover. It's some sort of crazy, lateral hesitation move that put Jack completely on skates. It's almost like Canaan needed unnatural ankle flexibility to do it.

Weeks after Sam Hinkie doubled down on tanking, the Philadelphia 76ers have predictably continued their descent to the bottom of the standings. Their 2-9 record in the 11 games since the trade deadline has left them with the second worst in the league.
