Examining the Sixers’ small lineups without Joel Embiid

Examining the Sixers’ small lineups without Joel Embiid

The Philadelphia 76ers aren't contenders without Joel Embiid. He’s their leading scorer and best defender, an anchor they can rely on to raise their ceiling at both ends of the floor. But if there’s one positive side to Embiid’s recent stretch on the sidelines due to knee tendinitis, it’s that Brett Brown has been forced to shake up his team a little. Naturally, embracing smaller lineups has been at the forefront of this change. Without Embiid, Boban Marjanovic and even Jonah Bolden against Orlando on Tuesday, Brown has emphasized speed over size far more often. In eight games since...

The Sixers need to unleash Jonah Bolden

The Sixers need to unleash Jonah Bolden

Bryan Colangelo’s time with the Philadelphia 76ers obliterated the team’s future depth, but he may have drafted the solution to his own problem in Jonah Bolden. Editor’s note: Liberty Ballers is happy to welcome our newest contributor to the team, Dan Volpone. The Philadelphia 76ers’ bench issues are a long time in the making. You could argue they started on this path in 2016, when Bryan Colangelo (aka Eric jr) traded Jerami Grant for 53 games of Ersan Ilyasova and change. Or in 2017, when he gave up Nerlens Noel for Justin Anderson and a second round pick disguised as a first. Or...

Sixers can’t Sweep the Warriors

Sixers can’t Sweep the Warriors

Horrific third quarter sinks Sixers at home. Bright lights. Big city. The defending NBA champions in town. The atmosphere was lit – as the kids say these days. Unfortunately, the Philadelphia 76ers could not repeat what they had done earlier this season in Oakland against the Golden State Warriors as the Sixers lost 120-117 at the Wells Fargo Center. Ben Simmons led all Sixers scorers with 25 points, 15 rebounds, and 11 assists. The Sixers had six players in double figures (Jimmy Butler 21, Tobias Harris 20, Jonah Bolden 12, Mike Scott 22, and T.J. McConnell 10). Negatively, Simmons had...

Without Joel Embiid or Boban Marjanović, Sixers recall Justin Patton from the G League

Without Joel Embiid or Boban Marjanović, Sixers recall Justin Patton from the G League

The 76ers have recalled Justin Patton from the Delaware Blue Coats. He’ll be traveling with the team to Oklahoma for Thursday’s matchup against the Thunder. It’s unclear if he will see game action but they could certainly use an extra body so it would not be a surprise to see him out there. With Joel Embiid (knee tendinitis) and Boban Marjanović (knee sprain) already ruled out, the team is down to precious few serviceable bodies at the center position. Jonah Bolden is a rookie who has shown flashes of two-way play. Veteran Amir Johnson has struggled to crack the...
