All-Star Weekend Roundup

All-Star Weekend Roundup

Things of note regarding the Sixers from the All-Star Weekend festivities Rising Stars Challenge Joel Embiid, Ben Simmons and Dario Saric competed as members of Team World in the 2018 Rising Stars Challenge on Friday night. Similar to the All-Star game, the Rising Stars Challenge shouldn’t be taken too seriously. With that said, the Sixers promising young talent was evident. Simmons tallied a stat line of 11 pts, 6 reb, 13 ast, 4 stl. Saric dropped 18 pts and tacked on 5 ast. Embiid only played 9 minutes to score 5 points, but he also did this: L'Unico acuto di @JoelEmbiid stanotte, uno...

Liberty Ballers All-Star Saturday Night Reaction Thread

Fresh off his brief run in the Rising Stars game, Joel Embiid has his sights set on the Skills Challenge. Night One of All-Star Weekend is in the books, and if you tuned in last night... we REALLY hope you skipped that dreadful Celebrity Game. Conversely, the Rising Stars game was pretty darn entertaining. While it quickly devolved into a defense-optional dunkfest (and a 155-124 Team World victory), we saw some amazing performances from Sixers’ representatives Ben Simmons (11 points, 13 assists, 6 rebounds, 4 steals) and Dario Saric (18 points, including 4-for-7 shooting from deep). Joel...

Joel Embiid, Ben Simmons and Dario Saric are all set to start for the World Team in the flagship event of All-Star Friday Night For the next three days, the City of Angels is the epicenter of the NBA universe as All-Star Weekend 2018 kicks off tonight in Los Angeles. First up on today’s agenda is the All-Star Celebrity Game (presented by Ruffles!) filled with actors, former players, current WNBA stars, and some folks that I’ve never heard of in my life. (For the record, Win Butler of Arcade Fire tries WAY too hard in these things - he’s like the new Arne Duncan.) The clear highlight...

Sixers Extinguish 24 Point Deficit, Defeat the Heat Without Joel Embiid

Sixers Extinguish 24 Point Deficit, Defeat the Heat Without Joel Embiid

Sixers pull a 180 and storm back in very Un-Sixer like fashion Wow, where do we begin? The Philadelphia 76ers found out about a half hour before the game that they would be without All-Star Center Joel Embiid. That seemed to demoralize the Sixers squad as they came out in the first half looking extremely flat and completely disoriented on both ends of the court. Three technical fouls were dished out to the Sixers over the course of the game, as TJ McConnell, JJ Redick, and Dario Saric were all flagged with techs. Going in to halftime, it seemed like there was no shot that the Sixers could...

True Grit: 76ers Beat the Knicks 108-92

True Grit: 76ers Beat the Knicks 108-92

...you lose like the rest. Last night’s game became a movie in its final minutes. While the 76ers were firmly ahead of the Knicks, drama unfolded in another way as a triple-double alert was raised. Yet, it wasn’t Ben Simmons, Joel Embiid or Dario Saric, the three young stars, that were the subject to that alert. They were on the sideline cheering on with anticipation. No, it was the embodiment of grit that was on the verge of the accomplishment. When he finally went up and caught the final rebound for the feat, the bench and crowd erupted. Water and chocolate milk (!) baths were going...

76ers-Pelicans Game Preview/Thread: The More Things Change

The Sixers attempt to keep the home magic going as the square off against the New Orleans Pelicans at the Wells Fargo Center on Friday night. Before we preview the events of tonight, let’s first discuss the non-events of the past 30 hours, shall we? While the Cleveland Cavaliers spent most of yesterday going full Extreme Home Makeover, the Philadelphia 76ers stood pat at the trade deadline. A rumored deal for Grizzlies swingman Tyreke Evans never came to fruition, but if the rumored asking price of Dario Saric was legit, the Sixers were right to pass on making a move. More importantly,...
