Notes From The Sixers’ 104-101 Win Over Phoenix

The Philadelphia 76ers snapped their two-game losing streak on Sunday night, knocking off the Phoenix Suns 104-101. The Sixers’ record now stands at 8-6 on the season.

  • What a game by Jrue Holiday. The point guard set a career-high with 33 points, and also handed out 13 assists. He’s the unquestioned star of this team right now.
  • Evan Turner got off to a fast start, knocking down a pair of three-pointers to begin the game. However, the third-year guard struggled with his shot from that point on, hitting just two his final nine shots. Turner did finish with a near double-double, putting up 16 points and nine rebounds.
  • Give Jason Richardson a lot of credit for toughing it out tonight. The veteran reinjured his ankle last night against the Thunder, but was still able to suit up and knock down a couple of threes to help his team win tonight.
  • Doug Collins is trying to give rookies Malik Wayns and Arnett Moultrie opportunities to force their way into the rotation. Wayns is being given a shot to be the backup point guard, and saw seven minutes of action while scoring seven points off of the bench. The Sixers need a big man to step up and give the team a rebounding presence and they hope that Moultrie can eventually be that guy. Tonight the first-round pick played seven minutes without registering a single statistic.
  • After a week of hot shooting off of the bench, Nick Young cooled off noticeably tonight. He played just over 12 minutes, and connected on just one of his four field goals.
  • The Suns aren’t a very good team. They’ve got some talented players, but they don’t have a reliable go-to guy at the moment, and they’ve spent the last week shuffling their starting lineup in search of an effective combination. on Facebook

  1. Whoever stated the 76ers as a Top 4 See with 50 plus Wins
    Doesn’t know the NBA very well ( Jon Hart) I think his name is
    The 76ers will be around a .500 Team and maybe win 45 games at best and fighting for a 7th/8th Seed with an early 1st Round Playoff Exit
    They are way to inconsistent game in and game out (outside of Jrue)
    Who is playing very well so far this season and is the only All-Star Player on this Sixer Roster

    • If Bynum could be counted on, I think they would be a top four team.

      Unfortunately, his knee situation is just such a mess, and who knows if he even suits up for one game this year.

      If there’s been one big positive to the Bynum trade, I think its been that his absence has allowed Jrue Holiday to step up and take over as the face of the team. He looks like he’s grown a lot, and I think some of that has to do with the fact that Andre Iguodala isn’t around anymore. This is Jrue’s team now.

  2. But you need a lot more than Jrue Holiday even to be a 7th/8/th See tis season in. Much more competitive Eastern Conference
    What other 76er is consistent and shows up every game , mayb the Pro Richardson, but who else can help Jrue..

  3. We get lucky to make the playoffs. We have zero, at the 4 & 5 positions. Bynum is a mutt, & doesn’t want to play, & has no heart, nor the desire to play. His $16.5 saved against the cap, will look nice next year. At least we got rid of Stinkadala! Addition, by subtraction! We still are highly inconsistent shooting, & will still have trouble defending the top tier teams. Unless Bynum mans up, & grows a bean-bag, we don’t get out of the 1st round, AGAIN!!! We ARE NOT a 4-5 seed!

  4. I think Thad Young shows up every night.

    I agree though, right now its going to be tough for them to be more than a low seed. The hole at the center position is really hurting them, the amount of second-chance opportunities that they give to other teams has killed them all year.

    I don’t know that they’ll be one and done in the playoffs though.

    A lot can happen between now and then. Maybe Bynum is in the lineup and playing at a high level at the end of the year. Maybe a guy like Evan Turner steps up and develops into a more consistent presence as the year goes along.

  5. This was part of the risk that they took. Bynum has the knees of a 60 year old and he is a head case even when he plays. If nothing else, getting rid of Iggy gave the other players an opportunity to play. We will find out if any of the young players can play over the season. If not, they will have money.

  6. i told you alll…bynum doesnt wanna play b/c he doesnt have any m in the b beyond this year…we gives him his gold, he’ll show up

  7. I love the way we played against the Thunder on Sat night but those threes at the end killed us. We also had plenty of opportunities to take the lead and even win the game but couldn’t knock down wide open threes and jumpers in the final minutes. The Thunder did.

    Regardless, I think we played great against the defending Western Conf. Champions and we showed we can hang with any team. Thaddeus played great and is really starting to establish himself along with Jrue. Jrue is Batman and Thad is Robin right now. That’s how I see it. Evan is coming along as a strong roleplayer but still is not breaking out at the SUPER STAR level that a #2 overall pick is expected to break out as.

    I think this team will be alright if we can just get some work horses in the paint to rebound and block shots. Hawes is soft and Lavoy is just inconsistent. Maybe we can make a play on Dwight in the offseason with Bynum and Elton’s money.

  8. No way I invest one dime in Bynum past this year. They could be stuck with a dude who might only play 20 games a year.

  9. Why would Dwight Howard want to come and play for the 76ers
    Bynum is a Bust like CB Asmo was and I don’t expect him to even play 10-15 Games this Season if at all..

  10. if Jrue play well the sixers can win
    if Jrue struggles the sixers have no chance
    it is his team
