Sixers vs Clippers: Game Preview

Philly looks to get back over .500. 4-4 isn’t where the Philadelphia 76ers thought they’d be after eight games of this NBA season, but that’s the reality we’re living in as the team has struggled to find the right lineups and has dealt with injury concerns along the way. Thursday’s meeting with the Los Angeles Clippers, though, should present the Sixers with a chance to bound over the .500 barrier and get things headed in the right direction.

Kyrie Irving’s second-half heroics fend off the Detroit Pistons

Maybe all that hair was weighing him down? In the early days of the Boston Celtics’ new season, much attention has been paid to Gordon Hayward and his comeback from the broken leg that cost him the entirety of the 2017-18 season. Hayward is off to a fairly rusty start in his first month back, and Celtics fans have been very patient with his limitations and recovery — and rightfully so. At the same time, it feels as though that patience hasn’t quite been shown to the other Boston star making his return from a season-ending surgery, too: Kyrie Irving. The first six games of the season...

Sixers at Pistons: Game Thread

After squeaking out a win against Orlando, the Sixers head to Detroit. Philadelphia is 2-1 despite Ben Simmons playing a little under eight minutes on Saturday before leaving with back issues.
