Can Joel Embiid make it to 16-1 all-time vs. New York Knicks?

Photo by Dustin Satloff/ The Sixers take Manhattan... let’s hope this one is as fun as Christmas was. It’s the first Sunday without NFL football since September, and we’ve got a division matchup between the Philadelphia 76ers and the New York Knicks. When these Eastern Conference Atlantic Division teams met back in early November both James Harden and Joel Embiid were injured so it was the Tyrese Maxey show. Still, Philadelphia possessed a ten-point lead with under seven minutes remaining in the fourth, led by ‘Rese Lightning’s eventual 31 points. But the...

We’re over halfway through the NBA season. In the East, the contenders are starting to separate themselves from the rest of the pack.

Surprising Sixers on the trade block? Latest reports and intel on Sixers’ ‘two-way’ and ‘backup five’ needs

Set Number: X163545 TK1 Is Tyrese Maxey no longer untouchable? Is Georges Niang surprisingly on the trade block? What about Shake Milton? Does the team not mind the idea of keeping Thybulle? And ongoing backup big headaches. We’re here in trade season and there’s still not much going on. Is it going to remain quiet? Is some rival Bambi GM safe to graze? Or are Daryl Morey and Elton Brand lying, hiding in wait, poised to strike like a couple of lions camouflaged in the high and dry grasses of treacherous trade plains? Few expected them to land James Harden at this...

Tyrese Maxey thriving in sixth man role

Bill Streicher-USA TODAY Sports The 22-year-old guard has taken the shift to coming off the bench in stride. It’s been about a week and a half since Sixers head coach Doc Rivers announced that the team would be utilizing multiple starting lineups going forward. The biggest change that has come from this so far has been the shift of Tyrese Maxey from starting five to a sixth man role, with De’Anthony Melton taking his place. There was never the question of whether Maxey would play about the same amount of minutes whether he’s starting or coming in off the bench....

Shake Milton reveals mindset he and Tyrese Maxey try to maintain when providing spark off bench

Photo by Jesse D. Garrabrant/NBAE via The Sixers have won every game they’ve brought Tyrese Maxey off the bench on this current west coast road trip. Shake Milton sheds insight on the mindset it takes to succeed in that role. Doc Rivers recently revealed that he might be rotating the Sixers starting lineups moving forwards. And while many of us speculated that he’d be toggling out one of P.J. Tucker, De’Anthony Melton, and Tyrese Maxey, while leaving in Joel Embiid, James Harden, and Tobias Harris, for the last three games, it’s been the Sixers soon to be very...

Tyrese Maxey’s maturity is the key to the Sixers’ starting lineup experiment

Photo by Brian Rothmuller/Icon Sportswire via For the Sixers’ new starting lineup plan to work, it will require beyond-his-years maturity from Tyrese Maxey. For each of the past two games, the Sixers have started De’Anthony Melton in place of Tyrese Maxey alongside James Harden, Tobias Harris, P.J. Tucker and Joel Embiid. That isn’t necessarily a permanent change, but it also seems to be a part of the Sixers’ long-term plan moving forward. “We told our team there’s three lineups that we’ll be using from this point on,” head coach Doc Rivers told...
