The Philadelphia 76ers partnered with Papa John's to offer their fans half-off online orders the day after wins this season … but, 11 games in, they haven't won a single game. This is a problem -- a promotion never triggered is hardly a promotion at all.

In order to keep hungry fans happy, the rules have been changed. No longer will Philadelphia have to actually collect wins; it just has to score 90 or more points. The Sixers have done that in almost half their games, via Crossing Broad. Hooray!

They used to do that here for Wizards games but since they've been doing well the past few years, the deals are the usual "if they win and score 100 points or more".

But hey, if the Raiders can win one, the Sixers can too!

Once or if these guys actually mesh, it can be a good bench but right now their offense just isn't on par with say the Dubs or Grizz or Mavs.
bench is mainly inconsistent. last game, they were the ones that pulled it out. but they were sure nowhere to be seen against miami. farmar's always been talented but he's never been able to run an offense. here's hoping a little cp3 rubs off on him.

I think last year the Clips bench was the best scoring in the league (at least I remember that being the case for the first half of the season).

Maybe the second...

no doubt, on paper they have a great bench. crawford, farmar, hawes, turkoglu, i've liked a lot of what i've seen of reggie bullock, and even big baby is a good role-player (but lord he is bigger). there's some really good pieces there. if only they can get back to making a whole (and, yes, i think they're really appreciating collison now).

I know that the 'enforcer' role is kind of outdated and no one on the 76ers has really been in the league long enough to 'earn' such a role, but they really need one for games like this when they're just not physical at all on defense and constantly letting guards into the paint.

Kobe launching 36 foot jumpers. What a ridiculous shot.

I sat his ass in fantasy last night, that FG% is just too shitty. The guy was 6-22, it's one thing to have a guy go 1-4 and shoot 25% but 22 shots moves the needle.

Nothing but net!

speaking against stats & things, i don't like kirk goldsberry's work on grantland. i feel like almost all he does is reimagine his shooting charts and then make proclamations based off of them. i don't think i learn much from his articles; i get the feeling he either doesn't watch that many games or at least can't explain his analysis in a way that educates the reader. i especially think he cherrypicks his stats and takes leaps of faith where he doesn't tell the whole story. occasionally he has a nice idea, like the "boogie board" or "kobe assist," but it's just one idea and i don't learn anything else from the article.

Stopped reading his articles long time ago. On the plus side, that one Kevin Durant galaxy shot chart was pretty to look at.
