Two Quick Hitters on the Sixers’ 3rd Quarter Defense

Two Quick Hitters on the Sixers’ 3rd Quarter Defense

Editor’s Note: Our publishing interface is having some hiccups at the moment, and there are images in the following article that may or may not display. Please forgive any missing images for the time being. Hope to have them back up shortly. Following the Sixers’ Game 2 victory over the Brooklyn Nets, a couple of Sixers players mentioned the fury with which Brett Brown laid into the team at halftime. According to Mike Scott, Brown “cussed them out” for their defensive effort in the first half. And it worked — Brett lit a fire under the team. While the Sixers scored a season-high...

Comment Section Queries: JJ Redick & Mike Scott in The Playoffs

Do these players perform differently in the playoffs as opposed to the regular season? Welcome all to the first in a series that I plan on doing with some regularity. Essentially, I take a comment that I read in various threads on the site and take a look at it in some detail. I’ll make a few charts, list off a few stats, etc. I will only pick comments that I think are interesting - this is not a public shaming. I also take requests. Motivating Comment I’m going to skip the Jonah Bolden part (I think we saw his unreliability on full display in the last couple games) and...

Philadelphia 76ers: Zhaire Smith, Shake Milton aren’t playoff options

The Philadelphia 76ers won’t deploy their 2019 draft picks in the postseason, and that’s okay. All season, the Philadelphia 76ers‘ primary weakness has bene the bench. Even after upgrades at the trade deadline, questions remain about whether or not the bench can sustain itself in the postseason. Mike Scott, James Ennis and T.J. McConnell are […] Philadelphia 76ers: Zhaire Smith, Shake Milton aren’t playoff options - The Sixer Sense - The Sixer Sense - A Philadelphia 76ers Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Philadelphia 76ers: Mike Scott, James Ennis will be integral to playoff success

The Philadelphia 76ers will need strong bench performances in the postseason, starting with Mike Scott and James Ennis. The Philadelphia 76ers‘ new-look starting lineup is 7-1 when all five members are healthy. It’s arguably the most talented five-man group outside Golden State, giving the Sixers a legitimate chance in the top-heavy Eastern Conference.

Mike Scott thriving thanks to Philadelphia 76ers’ system

The Philadelphia 76ers’ system is significantly elevating the game of recently acquired 6-foot-8 forward Mike Scott. The Philadelphia 76ers‘ offense features one of the most dynamic point guards in the league in Ben Simmons (assisting 34.4 percent of the Sixers’ field goals made) and ranks eighth in offensive efficiency (110.2). The assist ratio of the Philadelphia 76ers (19.0) […] Mike Scott thriving thanks to Philadelphia 76ers’ system - The Sixer Sense - The Sixer Sense - A Philadelphia 76ers Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

With or without you: examining some early data splits on the Sixers starting 5

With or without you: examining some early data splits on the Sixers starting 5

Since the Sixers’ GM Elton Brand made some big swings before the trade deadline the new additions (like Tobias Harris and Mike Scott ) have not had a ton of time to gel with the incumbent stars (Joel Embiid, Jimmy Butler, and Ben Simmons). But the early returns have been special. In 7 games of action with Joel Embiid, Ben Simmons, Jimmy Butler, Tobias Harris and JJ Redick in the lineup the team is 6 and 1. They’re 12-5 with any four of those 5 players in the starting unit since the trade back on February 7th. Across their 116 minutes on the floor together they’re a +52. That +- number...

Mike Scott is the Best

Mike Scott is the Best

Taking a closer look at a new Sixers fan favorite With 2:20 left in the first quarter of the Sixers’ statement victory over the Milwaukee Bucks on Sunday, Boban Marjanovic decided to try his (enormous) hand at a jump shot. A long two, to be more specific. Normally an ill-advised decision for the big man, we can now thank our lucky stars that he did. The shot, of course, did not go in, but instead ricocheted off the rim and headed towards the first row of courtside fans. In walks our hero.
