#Sims picks up his third foul. Leaves the game

Bob Cooney

Noel's foul shooting form has gotten so much worse since Summer League.

Keith Pompey

#Pacers open up a six-point lead on Sixers (36-30) with 8:35 left in half. The #Sixers once had a 10-point lead.

Derek Bodner

Disagree. Outcome doesn't matter. Let him learn how to play with foul trouble RT @Bob Cooney: Can't have Noel get quick third here

Bob Cooney

Can't have Noel get quick third here

Bob Cooney

McDaniels, Shved, Thomas, Sampson and Sims to start second

Keith Pompey

Wroten off to a solid start. He leads all scorers with eight points on 4-7 shooting to go with three steals and two assists.

John Gonzalez

First full night of League Pass. Basketball overload. System short circuiting.

Derek Bodner

Reminder: I'm starting a weekly #sixers mailbag tomorrow. Send me your questions and I'll try to get them in.

Derek Bodner

And...last 2 mins looked like an overmatched group of kids making mistakes and playing outside of their comfort zone. Expect a lot of that.

Bob Cooney

12-0 run by Pacers to finish first, 26-24.

Keith Pompey

Pacers on a 12-0 run and lead 26-24 at the end of one quarter.

Bob Cooney

Now every big man for Sixers has at least 2 fouls.

Bob Cooney

Davies has 3, Noel 2 and Sims 2. Big man foul trouble for Sixers

Derek Bodner

How do you prevent a losing team from developing a bad culture? Make them all kids playing for their NBA lives. Ton of effort.

Derek Bodner

Shved to Malcolm Thomas for the oop.

Keith Pompey

Lavoy Allen in for Pacers. Sixers up 22-13 with 2:57 left in first

Derek Bodner

So starts the Alexey Shved era.

Keith Pompey

He's out there with second-rounder KJ McDaniels and undrafted players Malcolm Thomas, Davies and JaKarr Sampson

Derek Bodner

The Pacers have like half a ball handler still healthy. The #sixers success isn't entirely unexpected.

Bob Cooney

Schved only available player not to see action yet. Davies, Noel and Sums all with 2 fouls, still 4 minutes to go in first.

Keith Pompey

Wroten is the lone first-round pick on the floor right now for the #Sixers

Keith Pompey

Early line for Noel, 2 pts (1-for-1 shooting), 2 rebounds and 1 blocked shot in seven minutes.

Bob Cooney

Malcolm Thomas your power forward now. Thomas, Brandon Davies, McDaniels, JaKarr Sampson and Wroten on floor. Wow

Derek Bodner

Noel first NBA bucket, McDaniels first NBA minutes (along with JaKarr Sampson)

Bob Cooney

Sixers 8-12 from floor, have forced 6 turnovers. Up 16-11

Keith Pompey

#Sixers lead 12-9 with 6:20 left in first quarter. Noel 2 fouls, Sims 2 and Davies 1.

John R. Finger

The ex-Cub factor does not come into play tonight. Both teams are clean. However, the Royals dominate the ex-Phillie factor.

Bob Cooney

Three Sixers big men already have 5 combined fouls. Brown just looked down bench, but no options there, really

Keith Pompey

Sims and Noel both have two fouls - not good.

Derek Bodner

Nerlens got that foul due to bad rebounding technique.

Bob Cooney

Hibbert still very hesitant on what to do with basketball down low. Noel now also has 2 fouls. 7:24 to go in first

Keith Pompey

Oh, well. Sixers went on to miss two straight shots and then committed an offensive foul

Tom Moore

First sub of #Sixers season is Brandon Davies. Yikes.

Bob Cooney

Sims already with 2 fouls

Derek Bodner

League pass still can't handle remaining in full screen of you click on something on a separate screen? Lame.

Bob Cooney

If a Pacer finds himself going against Noel defending, a pump fake will probably do the trick. He's a little hyped

Keith Pompey

#Sixers shooting 80 percent (4-for-5) and lea8-5d

Keith Pompey

Make that 3-for-4 from the field and lead 6-5

Bob Cooney

Sixers triple team Hibbert in post then give up wide open three

Keith Pompey

I know it's early, but the #Sixers are shooting 66.7 percent (2-for-3)

Derek Bodner

Tough matchup for Nerlens tonight. Hard to put him on Hibbert with size difference, and Scola will pull him away from hoop.

Derek Bodner

#sixers win tonight. Definitely feeling it.

Derek Bodner

Do we have enough time left for the game?

John R. Finger

There is nothing in all of sports like a Game 7. Nothing comes close.

Derek Bodner

Donald Sloan, Solomon Hill, Tony Wroten, Christapher Johnson, Hollis Thompson, and Henry Sims are all starting in the same NBA game.

Derek Bodner

#sixers were only team in NBA history w/a -10.6 or worse SRS and more than 15 wins. That, plus Noel vs Sims 1-on-1: libertyballers.com/the-liberty-be…

6 years ago tonight was the best sports experience of my life as I celebrated down at CBP. #phillies http://t.co/n3kB4YbKHP

John R. Finger

here’s my Sixers’ season preview … Are the Sixers going to be good? No. Can they be good? No. See you next year.

Christopher A. Vito

Fred Pickett led Chester to 7 (yes, 7) straight District 1 AAAA titles. An unreal feat, in Pa.'s top district, that will never be matched.

Tom Moore

I have #Sixers going 12-70 in 2014-15. Agree? Why or why not?

Christopher A. Vito

Fred Pickett's final game as Chester High's boys basketball coach (the 2008 PIAA Class AAAA final) was a gem: youtube.com/watch?v=V126CA…

Christopher A. Vito

Fred Pickett was a man of character, loyalty and dedication, upon whom you could count for a smile. The former Chester coach will be missed.

Christopher A. Vito

Fred Pickett was a man whose teams won three state titles and 331 games to only 80 lost, but whose legacy goes beyond the basketball court.

Christopher A. Vito

Fred Pickett was a man who, when his kids didn't have anyone else, would chaperone Chester players on official college visits.

Christopher A. Vito

Fred Pickett was a man who helped his Chester players use basketball as a means of getting a top-tier college education.

Seeing word on Twitter of Fred Pickett's passing. So sad. Fred will always be legendary in Chester hoops circles. A truly great man is gone.

In Game 7, the Royals give the ball to a guy who once used Twitter to find a throwing partner. Such a cool story: ow.ly/DwVfF

#Sixers head into tonight's season-opener at the #Pacers with just 10 healthy players.

Once I was part of THE 20 … the leaders of Philly social media. Yes, that was a thing once. There were 19 others, too.

John Mitchell

Dunphy: Morgan can play in either the first 19 games or the last 21 games. of the season.Can't play the whole year. He's weighing that decis

Dan Gelston

The Phillies say the enitre coaching staff has agreed to return for the 2015 season.

Bob Cooney

Brett Brown says he knows who starting shooting guard is, but isn't saying. Sims, Noel, Thompson and Wroten are starters.
