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…

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
