If I were Byron Scott, I wouldn't advertise that I'm coaching to win. Plausible deniability.

Derek Bodner

It was just the #lakers last game where Jordan Hill passed Kobe Bryant for the team lead in FGA. Kobe's played 1 game since January 15th.

John R. Finger

Theo Ratliff in the gym tonight. Looks like he could crack the starting five on both of these clubs.

Tom Moore

J-Rich last 9 games: 18-for-78 FG (23.1%), with 7-for-39 on 3s (17.8%), avg. 5.3 points. #Sixers

Derek Bodner

It always amazes me how much important people put on terms like "power forward" and "center".

Tom Moore

Should look similar to Sixers-Lakers classics of early 1980s. RT @SID402SID @Tom Moore Not a very exciting picture,Tom

Tom Moore

With 10 available players, would think so. RT @C100Proof @Tom Moore so does glen rob play tonight

Bob Cooney

#Sixers with 10 players available tonight.

Keith Pompey

Luc Mbah a Moute will also miss the game. The forward has left shoulder soreness. #Sixers

Tom Moore

Jeremy Lin of #Lakers also has upper respiratory infection. #Sixers LA starting Ellington, Clarkson, W Johnson, Kelly & Black.

Keith Pompey

#Sixers swingman Jerami Grant is late scratch with upper respiratory infection. JaKarr Sampson moves… instagram.com/p/03mqBVTcCj/

John R. Finger

Swaggy P broke his knee. … Not rhyming, that happened. He won’t play tonight, either.

Bob Cooney

Just got word that Grant and Mbah a Moute out for #Sixers also.

Tom Moore

Grant out with upper respiratory infecion.

Keith Pompey

#Sixers adjust starting lineup: Covington, Noel, Aldemir, JaKarr Sampson and Smith.

Tom Moore

#Sixers Jerami Grant (upper respiratory infection) is also out.

Bob Cooney

Brett Brown said Jason Richardson will be out tonight and probably another game with knee swelling. J-Rich said he wants to play Wednesday

Derek Bodner

Today is yearly "joke that new guys should shine our shoes, and point out that we have more writers than readers" day at @Liberty_Ballers

Tom Moore

#Sixers J-Rich: Knee started swelling after practice in Santa Monica. '

Tom Moore

#Sixers J-Rich: 'I'm expecting to play Wednesday. We're just being cautious.'

John R. Finger

No Jeremy Lin tonight. He has a cold. It's going around.

Bob Cooney

Jeremy Lin out tonight for Lakers against #Sixers

Keith Pompey

#Lakers reserve PG Jeremy Lin out tonight vs. #Sixers. He had 29 points in the teams' last matchup. Lakers say he's not feeling well. #NBA

Keith Pompey

#Sixers starters vs. #Lakers: Jerami Grant, Nerlens Noel, Furkan Aldemir, Robert Covington, Ish Smith. http://t.co/fhGqV49CVm

Didn't see Embiid play one-on-one against the video coordinator today. His shooting form is exquisite, though.

Tom Moore

#Sixers Joel Embiid stretching prior to pregame workout. #76ers #NBA http://t.co/sDzdHDF0YU

Tom Moore

#Sixers Brown: same starters as Sun in Cle

Tom Moore

#Sixers Brown: 'Everyone understands (Noel is at 4) because if Embiid.'

Tom Moore

#Sixers Brown on Noel at 4: 'I think it was an eye-opener, defensively.'

Keith Pompey

Jason Richardson to miss a few game with knee soreness and swelling. #Sixers

Tom Moore

#Sixers Brett Brown: J-Rich out 'for a game or two' due to swelling/soreness in knee.

Christopher A. Vito

Guy on SEPTA train, to the girl sitting beside him: "I only stay home when my condition is contagious." Well isn't that comforting.

Tom Moore

#Sixers have one fewer win and three fewer losses than #Lakers. Game also impacts chances they get LA's top-5 protected pick. #76ers #NBA

Christopher A. Vito

Guy just rode a horse through Temple's campus. Here he is at 11th and Berks. http://t.co/GRwqi4hfvn

Nerlens Noel

Good to see the cats on their way to the final 4! Check out FanAngel.com @FanAngelSports

Isaiah Canaan

Blessed with another day to get better!!

John Gonzalez

If the Sixers pick 1st or 2nd, should they take another big man in Jahlil Okafor or Karl-Anthony Towns? ow.ly/KYWoZ

Tom Moore

Sounds reasonable RT @_bk_chino: @Tom Moore @zukovka yeah but Lin has no interest in the 76ers. He wants to be on a playoff team.

Tom Moore

Scheduled to be on @KYWNewsradio 1060-AM at 3:45 today to talk #Sixers with @MattLeonKYW. #76ers #NBA

Tom Moore

Don't think so RT @zukovka: @Tom Moore Do you think 76ers would have any interest in Jeremy Lin this summer when he's a free agent?

Derek Bodner

(The kid was clearly fed the question by his father, who was also there. Sam, of course, took the high road. But it was funny.

Derek Bodner

One of my favorite memories ever was at #sixers media day, ~8 y/o kid asked Sam HInkie what he thought of job Amaro was doing with Phillies.

Keith Pompey

Nerlens Noel and the #Sixers will look to snap their two-game skid tonight vs. the #LaLakers . instagram.com/p/02avU9TcKX/

Tom Moore

Also 2nd in league in TOs. Like his fearlessness, though. RT @PhilaPhans: @like made @ChrisRosica @Tom Moore @Randyljobst

Tom Moore

Would take Russell over TW in heartbeat RT @PhilaPhans @lukemade @Tom Moore @Randyljobst He will have to learn to play PG at the NBA level

Tom Moore

Too costly/not young enough RT @23_Sixers: @PhilaPhans @Tom Moore @23_Sixers @Randyljobst ok maybe they match Rudy Gay is unrestricted

Tom Moore

Sorry, Matthew. RT @matthewjbroad: @Tom Moore Don't kill my Kawhi Leonard sign-and-trade dream, Tom. Please don't.

Tom Moore

And they prob will RT @PhilaPhans: @23_Sixers @Tom Moore @Randyljobst Butler and Leonard are RFAs, Bulls/Spurs can match any offer.

Tom Moore

Not Hinkie's plan to sign high-level FA RT @23_Sixers: @PhilaPhans @23_Sixers @Tom Moore @Randyljobst you sign Kwame Leonard or Butler

Furkan Aldemir

Destekleriniz ve tebrik mesajalariniz icin cok tesekkur ederim. Allah daha iyilerini nasip eder insallah, dualari eksik etmeyin...

Tom Moore

Like Wroten coming off bench. Tries 2 many high-risk passes to run point with starters RT @PhilaPhans: @lukemade @Tom Moore @Randyljobst

Tom Moore

Not a big fan of that idea RT @PhilaPhans: @Tom Moore @lukemade @Randyljobst You can run w/ Wroten for a yr at PG if you can find a scorer

Tom Moore

Really need a scorer RT @lukemade: @Randyljobst @Tom Moore We have ok wings. Def need guard talent in pipeline. Hoping 4 Russell or Mudiay

Keith Pompey

Cavs win 87-86 in a game of misses!

John Gonzalez

Sixers lost. Crisis averted

Keith Pompey

I've never seen a miss-fest like this

Keith Pompey

Noel misses a jumper over Thompson with 2.8 seconds left. Cavs ball with one second left. Up 87-86. Call timeout

Bob Cooney

#Sixers ball with 8 seconds to go and down 1

Keith Pompey

Smith misses a WIDE OPEN 3 before James misses a jumper with 9 seconds left. #Sixers call timeout and have ball with 8.5 left

John Gonzalez

No one has scored for almost four minutes

Bob Cooney

With chance to give #Sixers a lead, Covington misses 2 FTs with 1:07 to go. LeBron then misses fadeaway. Sixers ball with 37 to go down 1.

John Gonzalez

What was that shot? Are the Cavs throwing this game?

Keith Pompey

Make that two foul shots. Sixers still down 87-86

Keith Pompey

Covington misses a foul shot

Keith Pompey

Can anyone make a basket?

John Gonzalez

Sixers down 1 on the road with 1:30 left in Cleveland

Keith Pompey

#Sixers missing opportunities down 87-86. First Grant missed two FTs, then the Sixers missed two layups. 1:33 left

Bob Cooney

Grant misses both foul shots with a little over 3 to go. #Sixers trail by 1.

Bob Cooney

Lower back injury for Love and he won't return. #Sixers.

Keith Pompey

#Sixers just won't go away. Down 85-83 with 4:29 left after Grant FTs

John Gonzalez

Nerlens Noel is a really good passer.

Bob Cooney

Love left the court and went straight to the locker room. Not sure what happened there. #Sixers.

Bob Cooney

Same reaction, though a little more subtle, after another Canaan missed three by Brown. #Sixers.

Bob Cooney

Long three by Canaan after a timeout has Brown raising his palms on the bench as if to say "Why?". #Sixers down 2.

Bob Cooney

#Sixers have forced Cleveland into 16 turnovers. All tied at 78 with 8:57 to go in the game.

Bob Cooney

Canaan three ties it at 72 to begin fourth. #Sixers.

Bob Cooney

#Sixers have held Cavs to just 43.3 percent from the floor through 3. Cleveland up 72-69. Covington leads Sixers with 14.

Bob Cooney

Brown pissed after that interior defensive lapse. But Sampson hits layup at other end and #Sixers are within 3.

Bob Cooney

#Sixers Isaiah Canaan out with contact problem. Ish Smith in.

Bob Cooney

With his fourth three, Covington now up to 14 points. #Sixers down 1.
