They are looking legit so far. I hope they can keep it up. Brand and Igs is a pretty nice combo and the guards and bench have been playing well so far. They could be decent with a healthy Evan Turner.

Spencer Hawes has been surprisingly good.

Knicks are horrible on defense once again this year even with Chandler so I fully expect a Sixers comeback if the Knicks cool off a little bit offensively.

Yeesh, still struggling in the 2nd quarter. Just 35 points at halftime. They actually cut into the lead a little bit though thanks to some strong D/Knicks cooling off in the 2nd. 45-35 at the break.

Knicks 72
Sixers 60

9:49 4th Quarter

Just when they get going the Knicks make another run. Melo is sick with the step back jumper.

Just a bad offensive night for the Sixers. Actually played pretty good D after the 1st but just couldn't get it going on offense.

Best young talent in the East however I think they're just like Atlanta, a team full of good players but no great players.....

Eh I'll give him the benefit of the doubt.

People were saying Turner was a bust last year. While he's far from an elite player he does contribute double figures off the bench.

Wall is ok but needless to say is not the type of player that can put the franchise on his back and lead them out of the NBA basement. He might be pretty good if he could shoot worth a damn.

Sixers (10-3) 94
Bucks (4-8) 82

Eight straight game the Sixers held opponents to 90 or less. 2nd ranked defense so far (86.2 PPG). They will need to keep it up to make a decent run. Also currently ranked 3rd offensively (101.3 PPG) which is surprising considering the lack of star power.

They've played a pretty weak schedule so far but beating up on weaker teams is half the battle.

It's amazng to me that he can't even put together a respectable jump shot considering how athletic he is.

Of course Andre Miller goes off and has a great game.

Sixers (11-4) 90
Hawks (11-5) 76

Thaddeus Young - 20 Points
Jrue Holiday - 16 Points - 11 AST
Elton Brand - 10 Points - 16 REB


14-0 run in the 3rd quarter paved the way for victory.

What's most impressive is that the Sixers are winning big. They are just whipping teams. Yeah, they haven't faced a lot of tough teams, but good teams thrash the weak ones. Tonight is a big test against the Heat.

It's incredible that the Sixers are this good without a star player. They really are an ensemble cast, and it's rare to see such a group be so successful. They have completely bought into Doug Collins's philosophy and have really taken on his persona. It will be great to see how far they can go this season.

Heat (11-4) 113
Sixers (11-5) 92

Iguodala and Brand disappear entirely combining for a whole 16 points. Meanwhile Evan Turner had 16 by himself. Lou Williams led the way with 22.

With James and Bosh shooting the way they did, the Sixers weren't going to win. They don't have any defenders that can stop those two.

I realize that but 16 points between your two best players isn't good by any stretch.

Especially since the Heat are somewhat vulnerable inside.

Balanced scoring all around. The Wizards are simply turrible.
