Sixers Tinder: Jahlil Okafor and Philadelphia have never been right for one another

The Jahlil Okafor era should be over. There is a toughness and a competitiveness and a demanding, non-negotiable stance that you can’t help but bring with you, it’s highly-influencing. I am a defensive coach, I see the game through defense. All coaches when it gets down—especially in big games—we’re all crying to find ways, ‘How do we score? How do we score?’ I get it, you win games putting the ball in the hole too. His defensive mentality and his accountability and his toughness has tremendously influenced me. That quote is what Brett Brown told reporters on his very first...

Pacers vs. 76ers: Game thread, lineups, odds, TV info and more

The Pacers need to focus on what they can control which on Monday is beating the Sixers in Philly. The Pacers’ regular season is down to two games and a pair of wins guarantees the post-season play. You can’t win two unless you win the first one, so the Pacers will try to push their winning streak to four games when they visit the Sixers at Wells Fargo Cetner. The Sixers added Sergio Rodriguez (hammy) to their lengthy injury list which now includes Joel Embiid, Jahlil Okafor, Robert Covington and Ben Simmons. One player of interest is Alex Poythress who spent most of the season in Fort...

Injury-riddled Sixers to sign Alex Poythress via hardship exception

With 2 more Sixers out for the year, Sixers granted hardship exception. After Jahlil Okafor and Robert Covington were ruled out for the year, the Philadelphia 76ers were in dire need of bodies just to finish out the year. The 82-game marathon had become a trial of attrition for the Sixers from the moment the season began as nearly half the roster are either stuck to the bench or at home recuperating. Coach Brett Brown said after the previous game that the team’s biggest need was a PF to spell poor Dario Saric, who has seemingly played non-stop for a year. And who would GM Bryan Colangelo...
