How do Sixers solve rebounding issues? That depends who you ask

Photo by Mitchell Leff/ Do the Sixers need to be more physical on the glass or are defensive breakdowns the culprit? Sounds like it could be both. There was a spirited bit of 1-on-1 play happening at the Sixers practice facility Thursday. A group featuring Joel Embiid, P.J. Tucker, Paul Reed, and Jaden Springer took turns squaring off. At one point it was Tucker defending Embiid. The 6-foot-5 wily veteran attempted to take a charge on the 7-footer, which prompted Embiid to yell, “Stop flopping in practice!” It was a fun, competitive moment that the media is not...

With Sixers getting healthier, players like Milton, Korkmaz are re-adjusting to smaller roles

Photo by Logan Riely/NBAE via Guys who stepped up over the last couple weeks will look to maintain a similar level of impact in fewer minutes off the bench. When the Philadelphia 76ers suffered so many injuries that they affectionately became known as the Hospital Sixers, numerous players off the bench stepped up to help keep the team afloat. Shake Milton went from playing 10-to-18 minutes per night, to starting, averaging 36-to-42 minutes, and getting nominated for Eastern Conference Player of the Week. Furkan Korkmaz, who has missed games due to a knee injury this...

LeBron James, Anthony Davis probable for Friday’s Sixers-Lakers game

Photo by Tim Nwachukwu/ A star-studded showdown at Wells Fargo Center is brewing. After missing Wednesday’s Los Angeles Lakers-Toronto Raptors game, stars LeBron James and Anthony Davis are listed as probable to play against the Philadelphia 76ers on Friday. James missed Wednesday’s contest due to left ankle soreness. Davis exited early from Tuesday’s game against the Cleveland Cavaliers with a non-COVID illness. He subsequently sat out the second leg of the back-to-back. Both are seemingly in line to return Friday and help keep the Lakers’ resurgence going....

Sixers: Pros and cons of pursuing 3 trade targets

The Philadelphia 76ers have stumbled out of the gates this season. At 12-12, they currently occupy the No. 8 seed in the Eastern Conference, far removed from the heavy-hitters up top. There’s still plenty of time to turn things around, but it’s starting to feel like Daryl Morey might need to explore the trade market […] Sixers: Pros and cons of pursuing 3 trade targets - The Sixer Sense - The Sixer Sense - A Philadelphia 76ers Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

Sixers’ Doc Rivers, Tobias Harris open up about WNBA star Brittney Griner’s release

Photo by EVGENIA NOVOZHENINA/POOL/AFP via Taking a break from X’s and O’s, the 76ers’ coach and reliable forward talk about Griner’s release from a Russian prison. Thursday the country, and the basketball world in particular, learned that WNBA star Brittney Griner has been freed. In a one-for-one prisoner swap, Griner was released from prison in Russia, where she spent a total of 294 days for drug smuggling after Russian customs found hashish oil cartridges in her luggage, in exchange for international arms dealer Viktor Bout. Per CBS News, President Joe Biden...

With Sixers struggling to find consistency, who needs to step up to right the ship?

Photo by Jesse D. Garrabrant/NBAE via ESPN’s Jorge Sedano joins me to discuss who needs to be the reason the Sixers figure things out and begin to play to their potential. After an offseason of widely applauded roster moves, this season’s version of the Philadelphia 76ers was supposed to find themselves jockeying for position at the top of the Eastern Conference. Instead, injuries, coaching, and consistency issues have plagued the Sixers, who sit at 12-12 just past the quarter mark of their schedule. There’s no doubt that missing their best three players has...

Tyrese Maxey back at practice, still “a ways away” from return

Tyrese Maxey back at practice, still “a ways away” from return

Eric Hartline-USA TODAY Sports The Sixers guard was on the practice court without a walking boot and with a new hair style. Now 12-12 on the season, the Philadelphia 76ers are mercifully inching closer to getting back to full strength. Joel Embiid has played the last four games and James Harden returned after a month-long absence on Monday in Houston. Now, we have an update on Tyrese Maxey, who has been out since suffering a small fracture in his left foot in the game against Milwaukee on November 18. Tyrese Maxey on the floor with a new look at practice...

Sixers: Paul Reed ranks as one of NBA’s best defensive playmakers

Despite the Sixers’ recent slide to .500, there were plenty of positive takeaways from the team’s injury-hampered stretch of basketball prior to James Harden’s return. One of them was Paul Reed‘s emergence, especially in the games Joel Embiid missed. Reed showcased substantial improvement on the offensive end, but his impact will always be rooted in […] Sixers: Paul Reed ranks as one of NBA’s best defensive playmakers - The Sixer Sense - The Sixer Sense - A Philadelphia 76ers Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

The Sixers’ defense can be much better — and it starts with Joel Embiid

Photo by Carmen Mandato/ Philadelphia has regressed over the past three games defensively and its anchor inside is part of the reason. From Oct. 29 through Nov. 28, the Philadelphia 76ers, despite Joel Embiid, James Harden and Tyrese Maxey missing a combined 26 games, went 11-5 and touted the league’s third-ranked net rating (plus-5.0). Fueling them was an NBA-best defensive rating of 106.5, more than two points clear of the second-place Milwaukee Bucks (108.7). Over the past three games, the Sixers are 0-3 with a minus-14.6 net rating, despite Embiid, Harden and...

Are the Sixers in the top tier of the Eastern Conference?

The Philadelphia 76ers currently sit 7th in the Eastern Conference largely due to a flurry of injuries that have hindered roster continuity.

Focusing on positives from James Harden’s uneven return

Focusing on positives from James Harden’s uneven return

Troy Taormina-USA TODAY Sports Harden’s return to action after a month-long absence didn’t go quite as scripted, but he certainly brought things to the table the Sixers sorely missed. The Philadelphia 76ers’ 132-123 double-overtime loss to the Houston Rockets Monday night was the game that would not end. It just went on and on, my friends. Surely, this was not ideal for the Sixers welcoming back James Harden after a month-long absence. Doc Rivers claimed before the game that Harden was on an undisclosed minutes limit, and the Beard then went on to play 38 minutes....

Harden returns, but Sixers come up short in double OT to Rockets

Photo by Carmen Mandato/ Adio Royster and Dave Early recap Philly’s loss to the lowly Rockets. How? How did the Philadelphia 76ers lose to the Houston Rockets 132-123 on a night when James Harden returned to the Sixers' starting lineup after (allegedly) healing from a foot injury? How did the Sixers lose to a Houston Rockets team that (before tonight) had six wins on the season? Why did this team with Harden returning to the lineup with Joel Embiid and Tobias Harris (who quietly had another VERY GOOD game) need double overtime only to lose by nine in a game where...

Sixers regular season Bell Ringer standings: Joel Embiid- 8 James Harden- 4 Shake Milton- 4 Tyrese Maxey- 3 Paul Reed- 2 Tobias Harris- 1 Georges Niang- 1 An array of factors seemingly lined up for the Philadelphia 76ers to snap their two-game slide on Monday.
