I hate the selective replays. They call travel when it didn't look like one and no replay. Right to commercial. Other times we get instant replay of that sweet pass or dunk.

Simmons needs to wake the #### up. I've defended this guy to the high heavens but he is coming up small here.

yeah, i would be real down on Ben too but sitting with 4 fouls he seems to be tentative all around. can't blame him a ton cause he seems to be a magnet for the refs today

if the Sixers win this game it will really be something. Ben playing terribly, and the other 3 are shooting like less than 20%

That doesn't mean he has to suck on offense too. Not driving at all. Poor passes. Not urgency. And missing foul shots.

Nets have buckled in many a 4th quarter this season. Let’s finish strong here.

Sixers hitting 15% from 3, so it will take A LOT of buckling

Well they better wake the #### up for Monday. This looked like the way they've been playing the last month or so.

JJ had 5 points and shot like 20%. Tobias not much better. they stop that 22-1 run and those 2 hit anything close to their norm and Sixers win. 90% because of Jimmy

ETA: have to think they shoot better than 13% from 3 next game too. 3-23 :loco:

Alright this is over.  Get rid of everyone and start the process again.

I think they should follow the Nets process of trading their next nine years of picks away for aging veterans, and then sucking for years without receiving any benefit from it. Then take on some bad contracts in order to acquire good young assets and then somehow form a winning team with a roster of players most casual fans never heard of.

easy, peasy.

I think the Sixers will still rebound and take the series, but man it is crazy the turnaround the Nets have had.

It's weird because the announcers keep saying the names of these guys on Orlando but they have to be wrong because there's no way Terrence Ross or DJ Augustin or Wesley Iwundu or Michael Carter-Williams are on a playoff team.

The Dwight Howard trade happened seven (7) years ago and the Magic have won their first playoff game before the Lakers did.
