  1. Sixers were up by about 25 in the first half and Jrue Holiday was looking solid. I think he finished the first half with 8 pts, 3 rbs, 3 assists. I don't think he got any significant playing time in the 2nd half though.

    Sixers played well last night but Nash and Richardson were dominant. The Suns couldn't miss from long-range in the 2nd half.

  2. Yeah 15 of 30 from downtown, or something like that.

  3. What's going on with Elton Brand? Is he not healthy? Speights seems to be getting twice the amount of playing time as both Brand and Dalembert on a daily basis.

    Brand and Dalembert are an expensive duo and the fact that they're only playing a combined 25-30 minutes a game is definitely an issue.

  4. I'm not sure if he is just not back yet or this is what he is.

    I'm going to say he will be eased into more minutes. 10 ppg isnt cutting it from Brand.

  5. Nash vs. Lou Williams. Nuff said. Sadly, Brand looks like a shell of his former self.
    Suns are fun to watch once again without Shaq anchoring them down.
    Jared Dudley--nice pickup by the Suns. Always liked him going back to his B.C. days. Tough as nails. Sixers couldn't have used him? Ah.
