Philadelphia 76ers News: Regular Season and Preseason Updates
About Philadelphia 76ers
Price for a Beer
3/25/15: Nerlens Noel may need slow his roll if he is going to keep playing for the Philadelphia 76ers. It is not that he has been a public enemy or anything, but he is simply playing too well for the 76ers to finish at the bottom of the league. In fact, he has come on so strong of late that he may be able to contend with Andrew Wiggins for Rookie of the Year honors. Noel leads all rookies with 7.9 rebounds per game, 1.9 blocked shots per game and 1.8 steals per game. Those totals have been up for the past month, too. It is probably a long shot that he gets the award, but he should at least be in the conversation.
3/18/15: The Philadelphia 76ers, from an organizational standpoint, may well be gunning for top pick in the NBA Draft, though they have serious competition in the loss department from both the New York Knicks and Minnesota Timberwolves. However, the players are still giving effort, they are just generally overmatched in most games. But give them credit for overcoming an 18 point deficit to the Sacramento Kings last week and winning that game. Head coach Brett Brown ripped into his team at halftime and the 76ers responded in a big way. While the front office may be looking at a high draft pick, the players still have pride and want to win.
3/11/15: The Philadelphia 76ers selected an injured Joel Embiid with their first round selection last year, knowing full well that he would likely not play in the 2014-15 season. There still is no set date for Embiid to make his NBA debut, though the odds are it will be next season. Still, Embiid was able to participate in warm-ups recently and showed what type of talent he may bring to the court with a between the legs slam dunk. Many may think that if he is healthy enough to pull that stunt then he is healthy enough to play. Then again, the 76ers have been very obvious in their desire to accumulate the maximum number of ping pong balls for the next draft.
3/4/15: Philadelphia got creative at the trade deadline, shipping one of their best players, if not their best player, Michael Carter Williams to the Milwaukee Bucks for even more draft picks. It also introduced a new term: 'retanking'. But the 76ers are still making moves. They picked up Thomas Robinson off of waivers last week, even though they have no real need for him and the Brooklyn Nets were set to sign him. The reason was that the 76ers were below the salary floor, which is 90% of the salary cap. Adding Robinson got them above the floor, though Portland and Denver had already paid most of his salary for this season.
2/25/15: Maybe the Philadelphia 76ers were getting too good for their own good, so they traded off reigning rookie of the year Michael Carter Williams. Many are calling it 're-tankiing'. Sixers General Manager Sam Hinkie said nearly as much by admitting that the rare chance to get a high lottery pick motivated the trade. MCW ended up in Milwaukee (and a chance at the playoffs). The 76ers came out with the Los Angeles Lakers first round pick this year, though that is protected from being a top-5 pick. The strategy to try to get a high draft pick is understandable, but at some point the 76ers are actually going to have to develop their players.
2/18/15: If this season is about developing the talent that is already on the 76ers roster, then Michael Carter-Williams has to be considered a success. He was named to be a representative to the US team in the Rising Stars Challenge - the annual All Star weekend event that uses only first and second year players. Unfortunately, Carter-Williams has been bothered by a sore right foot and has missed the last three games. He pulled out of the Rising Stars Challenge accordingly. MCW becomes the latest in a long list of players that are injured and have had to pass on All Star events this season.
2/11/15: Okay, so admittedly this is a long-shot, but it is technically possible. The 76ers could conceivably make the playoffs this season. Now that the laughter has stopped, it is worth a thought. Brooklyn currently holds the eighth and last playoff seed in the sad Eastern Conference. Philadelphia is 11 games back. Should the 76ers magically go on a huge winning streak (yes, very, very unlikely), they have enough games to catch that last spot. That is actually a pretty good explanation of the East this season. Meanwhile, good teams like the Oklahoma City Thunder may get shut out of the playoffs because they are in the West.
2/5/15: The Philadelphia 76ers continue to stick to the plan of developing their young talent, even if it means a few seasons of losing. And not just regular losing, but prolonged streaks that mean the team may not reach 20 wins in the season. But at least they have their plan in place. However, they may have suffered a big setback last week when their leading scorer, Tony Wroten suffered a partially torn ACL. He is likely finished for the season. That requires the dreaded ACL surgery, which typically takes eigth to 12 months to fully heal. On the other hand, that may mean a few more losses this season, which may mean a few more ping pong balls in the lottery.
1/28/15: The Philadelphia 76ers season is all about development and preparing for the future. Despite claims of tanking games, the 76ers do not have the worst record in the NBA - that belongs to the Minnesota Timberwolves. The players are certainly not trying to lose - they are trying to get better and be around for another season. Forward Jerami Grant put that into action last Saturday by scoring a career high 16 points against Memphis. Head coach Brett Brown is pleased and praised Grant's worth ethic and development. They may not win a lot this season, but Philly is gearing up for a great improvement in the next couple of years.
1/21/15: The Philadelphia76ers have been on a roll lately - or as much of a roll as one can expect from a team that finished the 2014 calendar year with four wins. Actually, they are 4-6 in their last 10 games, which doubled their win total. They cannot be accused of tanking any longer and seem to be turning into the team that management envisioned when they made their draft choices. There is some concern about Joel Embiid. The team knew that he would not play this season due to injury, but there are concerns about his maturity. His weight and work ethic are being called into question. He is only 20 years old, so no reason to panic yet.
1/14/15: So much for all that talk that the Philadelphia 76ers are tanking the season on purpose. While it took them until their 18th game of the season to get their first win, the won seven of next 18 games, good for almost a .500 record - which would probably be good enough to make the playoffs in the East, if carried out over the entire year. In fact, the 76ers have are 4-6 in their last 10 games and have more wins than both New York and Minnesota. If Philly keeps this up then they may even catch Boston in the standings in a few weeks. Now is a good time to see the 76ers, actually, because this is a team that is developing for the future with a solid core group of players.
1/7/15: The Philadelphia 76ers continue to lead the race for the most ping pong balls in the draft next season, though the New York Knicks seem to be closing in on them. Even if they do not end up with the best odds for the first overall pick, they will certainly have a high lottery pick, which would give them some quality talent going forward. That includes Joel Embiid, who is sitting out what should be his rookie season with an injury. Actually, the 76ers may have a good problem on their hand with two giant centers, so they will have to figure out what to do with Nerlon Noel when the time comes.
12/3/14: Realistically, it is rare that one gets a chance to witness history. But 76ers now have a chance to tie and make history this week - though probably not the type they want. Philadelphia lost their 17th straight game to open the season last Monday. They put up an effort, losing 109-103 to the visiting San Antonio Spurs. To be fair, the Spurs rested Tim Duncan and Tony Parker, and basically let Kawhi Leonard take control for a night. If the 76ers lose at Minnesota on Wednesday, they would tie the 2009-10 Nets with the worst start to a season. They would get a chance to break the record at home this Friday against Oklahoma City.
3/14/13: The Sixers battled the defending champion Miami Heat valiantly Wednesday night, but still came up just short, 98-94. The loss continued an awful stretch for Philly, as they've now dropped 13 of their last 15 games. Things aren't looking much brighter on the horizon either, as Indiana, Portland, the Clippers and Denver are on deck. Similar to the Raptors, the 76ers have received some notable numbers from young players such as Jrue Holiday, Thaddeus Young and Evan Turner. With the return of Andrew Bynum coming next season, this could very easily be a playoff team in the future of the Eastern Conference.
5/25/12 The Philadelphia 76ers rallied on Wednesday night to win a defensive battle on their home floor, forcing a Game 7 on Saturday night in Boston. The Sixers 82-75 win over the Celtics in Game 6 was led by Jrue Holiday's 20 point effort, as Philadelphia managed to stave off elimination and force the only Game 7 in the semifinal round of the 2012 NBA playoffs. Now, the Sixers must stick to their defensive gameplan and try to shut down Paul Pierce and Kevin Garnett if they hope to pull off the upset and advance to face the Miami Heat in the Eastern Conference finals.
5/18/12 The Philadelphia 76ers were not able to follow up their surprising Game 2 win over the Boston Celtics and were steamrolled in Game 3 by a score of 107-91. Returning back home to the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia was not the homecoming they expected, as they could do little to stop Kevin Garnett and the Celtics in their Game 3 loss. Thaddeus Young led all scores for Philadelphia with 22 points, and he also added 5 assists and 1 rebound. Now trailing the series 2-1, the Sixers will look to even up the series on Friday night.
5/11/12 In a thrilling Game 6 at the Wells Fargo Center in Philadelphia, the 76ers fought off a late rally from the Chicago Bulls and held on for a 79-78 win to cap a 4-2 series victory and move on to the Eastern Conference semifinals for the first time since 2003. The 8th-seeded Sixers became just the 5th team in NBA history to knock off the No. 1 seed in the first round. It has now been done in back-to-back years, as the 8th-seeded Grizzlies upset the No. 1-seeded Spurs last season. The 76ers will face the Boston Celtics in the second round.
After securing the final seed in the Eastern Conference playoffs at the end of the season, the Philadelphia 76ers lost the opening game of their playoff series against the Chicago White Sox by the score of 103-91. While prior to the start of the playoffs many believed that Chicago would easily win the series, the Bulls lost star player Derrick Rose to a torn ACL during game one, opening up the opportunity for the 76er's to advance to the next round much more easily than they would have previously. Elton Brand led the offensive attack for the 76ers with 19 points, 7 rebounds, 4 blocks and a steal in the loss. Game 2 will be played in Chicago on Tuesday.
5/4/12 With Chicago Bulls star point guard and former MVP Derrick Rose going down to an ACL tear late in Game 1, the Philadelphia 76ers took advantage of the Rose-less Bulls and capitalized with a convincing 109-92 win over Chicago in Game 2. With the series tied 1-1, the action will shift back to Philadelphia and the Wells Fargo Center for Games 3 and 4, where Evan Turner, Andre Iguodala and the Sixers will look to take their new homecourt advantage and get a leg up on the Bulls in this best-of-seven series and pull a major first round upset.
Going into the final game of their 2012 season, the Philadelphia 76ers find themselves tied with the New York Knicks with a 35-30 record. The team plays a hapless Detroit Pistons squad that is currently out of the playoff picture and a victory could propel them up to the seven seed for the playoffs. The Sixers will look to point guard Lou Williams for a strong performance against a Detroit team that is currently near the bottom of the league in nearly all major offensive categories. Williams is currently leading the team with 14.9 points per game on the season.
After an extremely strong start to the 2012 season, the Philadelphia 76ers have come down to earth a bit and are in a battle with the New York Knicks and the Milwaukee Bucks for one of the last two playoff spots in the Eastern Conference. While the team has won its last two games, it is currently 4-6 through its last 10 games. In order to ensure it snags one of those final playoff seeds, they will have to perform well through their final 8 games, which included a matchup against the Bucks. Offensively, the team has been led by Lou Williams, averaging 15.1 points and 3.5 rebounds per game.
