Can Philadelphia 76ers legend Bobby Jones make the Hall of Fame on defense?

Plenty of NBA players have made the Naismith Basketball Hall of Fame who were great scorers but not so hot on defense. Can former Philadelphia 76ers legend Bobby Jones make it this year as an outstanding defensive player who did not have a high scoring average. A player spends half the game playing defense so, […] Can Philadelphia 76ers legend Bobby Jones make the Hall of Fame on defense? - The Sixer Sense - The Sixer Sense - A Philadelphia 76ers Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

How Joel Embiid made a dominant statement in all areas against the Celtics

How Joel Embiid made a dominant statement in all areas against the Celtics

The big man learned from his past mistakes to lead his team to victory over Boston The Philadelphia 76ers needed to beat the Boston Celtics this week. Not for their position in the East, but to prove things have changed. To show that their new star-studded team won’t enter the playoffs suffering from the exact same flaws that have always held them beneath the Celtics. On Wednesday, Joel Embiid dominated with one of the best performances of his career to ensure that happened. Embiid’s night doesn’t just stand out because of his numbers, although they were monstrous to say the least. He...

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

Philadelphia 76ers: Maximizing J.J. Redick in the playoffs

The Philadelphia 76ers are postseason bound and with such an impressive starting five, J.J. Redick can’t be lost in the folds during the playoffs. This Philadelphia 76ers club will be scary come the postseason time. The starting five of Ben Simmons, J.J.

The Duality of JJ Redick

The Duality of JJ Redick

The sharpshooter could make or break the Sixers’ bid to make it out of the East alive Mired in one of the worst slumps of his career, JJ Redick showed the fragility of the NBA shooting specialist. In the eight games that Joel Embiid missed after the All-Star Break, Redick came out of the gate shooting blanks, connecting on just 29 percent of his 3-point attempts. Without their best player and receiving minimal contributions from their sharpshooter, the Sixers stumbled to a 4-4 record. Redick, often the forgotten man in the Sixers star-powered starting five, might ultimately prove the...

Notable Quotes from Sixers vs. Celtics

Notable Quotes from Sixers vs. Celtics

Jimmy Butler On working with the unit… I’m good, I think we’re all in a good place. We’re out there just having fun, just hooping. Obviously it’s more fun to win than to lose. I think everyone’s in a good spot. On evolving into the closer… They put the ball in my hands in the fourth and tell me to make plays and make shots. I think as of lately I‘ve been doing a good job of that, but that could be anybody to tell you the truth. With as many weapons that we have on this team, anybody can get the hot hand, anybody can put the ball in the basket. Just, the last few nights have...

Sixers fans, Joel Embiid, and the spite of The Process

Sixers fans, Joel Embiid, and the spite of The Process

Joel Embiid is the fuel to Sixers fans’ fire, as Philly is determined to let all bad Process takes burn. Being a fan of the Sixers over the last six years has been a truly unique experience. We’ve stuck by the team through terrible seasons, incessant roster instability, knee injuries, foot injuries, mysterious injuries, the decision to draft Jahlil Okafor, and the realization that out of all the people who love to argue on Twitter, our general manager was five of them. We knew there was a light at the end of the tunnel, and we’re finally seeing it. But our Sixers fandom is different...

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...

Can the Sixers Finally get a Win against the Celtics

Please! One time. We want to #CThemFall “This is not a rivalry. I don’t know our record against them, but it’s pretty bad. They always kick our ass.” – Joel Embiid Allow me to paint the brutal reality of the Philadelphia 76ers facing the Boston Celtics, tonight, Joel. Tonight, the Sixers resume this budding rivalry that isn’t much of a rivalry as Embiid himself has said after the 105-87 loss in October. The Sixers lost to the Celtics again 121-114 in overtime on Christmas Day then again on February 12th, 112-109. Add those two losses to the grand total over the last five years,...
