Terrence Ross of the Orlando Magic might be exactly what the Sixers need

Jimmy Butler's debut and Sixers (-6) bets are spoiled by a 20-0 run and a Terrence Ross 3.O/U 218 stays under by 1 point with a final score of Magic 111, Sixers 106pic.twitter.com/WG5vstgsDb— The Action Network (@ActionNetworkHQ) November 15, 2018 You remember Jimmy Butler’s debut with the Philadelphia 76ers when Terrence Ross stole the show. Ross is the guy Reid Forgrave of CBS Sports just called “the 27-year-old hyper-athletic Orlando Magic wing who is having a breakout season seven years into his NBA career.” And Ross is a player that should at least be on the Sixers trade...

Philadelphia 76ers: Joel Embiid-Russell Westbrook rivalry is good for the NBA

Things got chippy between Philadelphia 76ers center Joel Embiid and Oklahoma City Thunder guard Russell Westbrook during Saturday afternoon’s matchup. To say the Philadelphia 76ers and the Oklahoma City Thunder are beginning a little rivalry would be dishonest as the Thunder have prevailed in 19 consecutive contests.

The Philadelphia 76ers went blow for blow against the Oklahoma City Thunder, but at the very end, they couldn’t come away with a win. This was a clash of defensive oriented teams with multiple All-Stars. It was like two heavy weight boxers trading blow for blow until the final buzzer sounded.

What are the guys saying following the loss? This is the first of what I hope to be a recurring piece, where I pull quotes from the Philadelphia 76ers’ PR staff’s post-game email and compile them into a brief article. Here are noteworthy soundbites following the team’s 117-115 loss to the Oklahoma City Thunder Saturday. Brett Brown On the final shot of the game: “You know, I thought we were trying to create an environment where Ben could attack as best he could, keep the court spread, cut the driving line off, and run a dribble handoff to Jimmy. We were out of timeouts at that...

Sixers vs. Thunder: Recap

Sixers vs. Thunder: Recap

Still can’t get a win against the Thunder. The Philadelphia 76ers haven’t beat the Oklahoma City Thunder since what feels like an eternity, and Joel Embiid suffering through some back pain made it all the more dicey that the Sixers would win. It was very clear from the beginning that the Thunder wanted to inflict their will inside on the Sixers with Embiid having those back issues the last two games. He did start, but the 20 points in the paint reflected the Thunder’s desire to pound the Sixers inside early. Oklahoma City shot very well from all over the court shooting 54% from the...

The Sixers need Jimmy Butler to increase his 3-point volume

The Sixers need Jimmy Butler to increase his 3-point volume

Let’s see more Jimmy (3-point) Buckets Jimmy Butler has never been in love with 3-pointers. During his previous four All-Star seasons, he put up 21.8 points per game on just 3.2 3-point attempts. Attacking opponents through pick-and-rolls, storming to the basket, and getting to the free throw line at an elite rate have been Butler’s comfort zone. This is why the Philadelphia 76ers traded for him. They had no one to create off the dribble from the perimeter. But Butler always had to adapt somewhat to make joining his new co-stars work. And for the most part, especially over the first...

Embiid vs. Westbrook III Anyone that knows me and everyone on the Liberty Ballers staff knows I’ve had this game circled on my calendar since last year’s All-Star Game. Today, the Philadelphia 76ers play the Oklahoma City Thunder in South Philadelphia. Russell Westbrook will be in town once again, and Joel Embiid will be waiting. Let’s slice some more of this Grade-A prime NBA beef! Last year, the Sixers lost both games to the Thunder (a 119-117 triple overtime thriller in South Philly and a 122-112 loss in Oklahoma City). The latter of which provided this great moment which gets a...
