Dwight Howard Brings His Dimension To Town

DownloadedFile

The Houston Rockets are in town, and they are huge. They start three players over 6’9, including the NBA’s favorite funny man Dwight Howard. The Rockets are currently leading the league in rebounding, and Howard, happy to be free of bigger stars on his team is thriving so far this season. He’s annoying, and pretty one dimensional, but the Rockets are a better team than the Sixers. By the way, did anyone see Andrew Wiggins last night?

The Starters:
Rockets (5-3)
PG Patrick Beverley
SG James Harden Jeremy Lin
SF Chandler Parsons
PF Dwight Howard
C Omer Asik

Sixers (4-4)
PG Michael Carter-Williams Tony Wroten, Jr.
SG James Anderson
SF Evan Turner
PF Thaddeus Young
C Spencer Hawes

Spurs Top Sixers

The Spurs absolutely dismantled the Sixers 109-85 tonight. They showed why they are what they are, while the Sixers got a lesson on what they really are.

Michael Carter-Williams is really good, but he isn’t Tony Parker. He could be though, didn’t Parker thrive under Brett Brown?

The Spurs play perfect basketball. They make every pass, they play tight defense. They utilize every player to his strengths, they take the life out of their opponents.

A game like this gives a lot of perspective. Do the Spurs represent the Sixers vision? If not, they should.

Sixers Beat Cavs 94-79

The Sixers stopped their skid at two after an impressive victory over the Cavs.

The Cavs were up by as many as fourteen in the second quarter, but the Sixers got a big boost from Tony Wroten Jr. The guard scored eighteen off the bench to help start a big push in the mid-second quarter.

Kyrie Irving’s struggles aided in the Cavs demise. The star point guard scored ten on just four of seventeen shooting.

Andrew Bynum received a warm welcome, as chants of “Bynum sucks” broke out through the game.

Anthony Bennett played just six minutes, and was held scoreless once again. He left the game with a shoulder injury, he probably sucks.

The two teams complete a home and home in Cleveland tomorrow night.

Tonight: The Cavs

The Sixers are on a two game losing streak and there is seemingly no end in sight. Ok, maybe there is, who knows. Kyrie Irving and his Cavs come into town tonight, dragging Andrew Bynum with them.

It looks like Andrew Bynum, who was listed as a game time decision, will be playing tonight, so that should be fun. Also, the Cavs surprise first overall pick Anthony Bennett has scored one basket through five games. (One!)

The starters:

The Cavs (2-3)
PG Kyrie Irving
SG Dion Waiters
SF Earl Clark
PF Tristan Thompson
C Anderson Varejao

The Sixers (3-2)

A Little Bit About Andrew Wiggins

So who is Andrew Wiggins? If you’ve been following basketball, you know that Andrew Wiggins is the savior, the cure to what ails all bad NBA teams with no direction, the next Lebron, “Maple Jordan”, etc. For two years, the basketball world has been gushing about the Canadian cum Kansas small forward who has yet to play one minute of college basketball. Deadspin posted a kind of “who’s who” about  Wiggins today, it explains everything. Watch the video and check out the link. [Deadspin]
