Sixers beat Nets in divisional showdown and remain in first place, but it felt like a moral defeat

Photo by David Dow/NBAE via All eyes were on the Philadelphia 76ers’ home matchup against the division rival Brooklyn Nets last night. The winner would get a one game lead in the standings, as well as the tie-breaker in the event both teams were to finish with the same record by season’s end. But the Nets were not at full strength. Of their “big three” (James Harden, Kevin Durant, Kyrie Irving) only Irving suited up. Blake Griffin and LaMarcus Aldridge (the latter of whom retired suddenly this morning because of an irregular heartbeat) weren’t in uniform...

Sixers: Does Ben Simmons have another gear?

By now, we’ve heard every narrative surrounding Ben Simmons. He can’t shoot. He won’t shoot. He refuses to shoot, but he plays elite defense. Same song and dance for the last five years. We get it. But with eighteen games remaining in the season, Simmons’ averages for this season — 14.8 points per game, 7.7 […] Sixers: Does Ben Simmons have another gear? - The Sixer Sense - The Sixer Sense - A Philadelphia 76ers Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

How the Sixers match up with the Nets and Bucks

The Sixers have a legitimate shot at reaching the NBA finals for the first time since 2001, but the path will not be easy. Barring a drastic change, Philadelphia will have to play at least one of the Brooklyn Nets or the Milwaukee Bucks to make the Finals.

Sixers Look to Cut Down the Nets in South Philly

Sixers Look to Cut Down the Nets in South Philly

Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports Tonight, it’s 1 vs. 2 in the Eastern Conference. LET’S GET IT ON! Tied for the top spot in the Eastern Conference at 37-17. The home team (your Philadelphia 76ers) are 20-5 at home. The away team (those Brooklyn Nets) are 15-10 at home. Between the two teams, there are multiple NBA All-Star appearances. This game SHOULD be an epic pre-playoff tip in what could be an Eastern Conference Finals preview. It may not be as epic because of the injury report of one of the teams playing. (And for once, it’s not the Sixers I’m referencing.)...
