  • I confess, I may have been wrong about Jimmy Butler

    When Butler came over to the media, drenched in sweat, he cracked jokes about beating up on Ndiaye. "Hell no," Butler said when asked if he ever lets Ndiaye shoot. The subject then turned to Joel Embiid.

  • Sixers film review: Evolution in some areas, but nagging problems persist

    Sixers film review: Evolution in some areas, but nagging problems persist originally appeared on nbcsportsphiladelphia.com It's been an unusual week for the Sixers since our last film review. Joel Embiid rested for the first time this season, Jimmy Butler missed Wednesday night's loss to the Nets with a strained groin, and the Sixers beat the Pistons twice. At this point in the year, it's rare to see any earth-shattering shifts from a team.

  • Rumor: Pistons among teams considering Markelle Fultz trade

    Markelle Fultz remains away from the 76ers, getting treatment for his Thoracic Outlet Syndrome while the rest of his teammates try to adjust to playing with Jimmy Butler (which is going better for some than others). The sense around the league is the Sixers still plan to trade Fultz, they’re just waiting for better offers to come in, the first round was very lowball. A few teams are kicking the tires on a trade, and among them are the Pistons, reports Rod Beard of the Detroit News.

  • Sixers vs. Nets: 3 storylines to watch and how to live stream the game

    Sixers vs. Nets: 3 storylines to watch and how to live stream the game originally appeared on nbcsportsphiladelphia.com The Sixers (19-9) will look to extend their league-leading record at home (14-1) against the Nets (10-18) at the Wells Fargo Center. Though their first matchup against the Nets at Barclays Center is one they'd like to forget, it was Jimmy Butler's game-winner in their second matchup that everyone will remember. But Wednesday night, Butler is out with a groin strain.

  • Dose: Welcome back, Vic!

    The Raptors housed the Warriors and are now 23-7, easily the best record in the league, Victor Oladipo is back, Spencer Dinwiddie and Anthony Davis went crazy, and John Wall and Jonas Valanciunas went down on Wednesday. Pacers 113, Bucks 97 – Victor Oladipo finally returned from his knee injury and had a 12-10-6 line in 29 minutes. Myles Turner kept it going with 23 points, four 3-pointers and three blocks, while Darren Collison fell off a cliff in Dipo’s return.

  • Dinwiddie scores career-best 39, Nets top 76ers 127-124

    Spencer Dinwiddie put on his best Stephen Curry impersonation. Dinwiddie scored a career-high 39 points off the bench and Allen Crabbe had 20 to lead the Brooklyn Nets to a 127-124 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers on Wednesday night. 'If I had two 3s in a row, I feel like Steph,' Dinwiddie said.

  • Spencer Dinwiddie scorches Sixers, gives them glimpse of what they need

    The shorthanded Sixers fought but lost to the Nets, 127-124, Wednesday night at the Wells Fargo Center. This story is partly about Spencer Dinwiddie, the Brooklyn guard who scorched the Sixers for a career-high 39 points Wednesday (see observations). This story isn't all about Dinwiddie - though he is a pending free agent who has yet to get an extension -  but about what he brings to the table.

  • 3 potential trades to improve the Sixers’ roster

    If you're in an uncomfortably quiet Uber ride or want to sound smart while waiting to get a fresh cut at the barbershop, throw out these trade ideas: Sixers receive: SG Justin Holiday, C Robin Lopez, 2020 second rounder Bulls receive: PG Markelle Fultz, PF Mike Muscala, PF Jonah Bolden The Bulls are in a complete rebuild. They need to buy low on talent like Markelle Fultz wherever they can. The shiny allure of a guy who was the No.

  • Butler opens up about heated Timberwolves practice

    Jimmy Butler has opened up about the infamous practice he was involved in while he was still a member of the Minnesota Timberwolves. Butler asked to be moved out of Minnesota in mid-September and the team finally honoured his request by dealing him to the Philadelphia 76ers two months later. But, shortly before he was traded, Butler took part in a scrimmage where he challenged multiple team-mates as well as Minnesota's coaching staff and executives.

  • Nets 127, Sixers 124: Shorthanded Sixers scorched yet again by Nets' guards

    The Nets' guards continuing to kill them. It just didn't look like the Sixers' night Wednesday from the beginning in a 127-124 loss to Brooklyn at the Wells Fargo Center. The loss was just the Sixers' second defeat at home this season and drops them to 19-10 overall.
