Descent into Philly beginning, so I have to power down. This impromptu #Sixers mailbag thing was fun. I'll have to resurrect it next season.

Christopher A. Vito

I have in-flight wireless for another 30 minutes. Any #Sixers-related questions out there, before team exit interviews today?

Sing it everyone: "Clap your hands, everybody....." Season is over. My preseason prediction of 18 wins was wrong. I underestimated.

Dan Gelston

Thaddeus Young had 20 points and nine rebounds, in what may very well be his last game with the #Sixers. Time will tell...

John R. Finger

Nice win for the Sixers … now the season really begins.

Christopher A. Vito

Even with the victory, the Sixers (19-63) finished with 20-or-fewer wins for only the third time in their 65-year history.

Christopher A. Vito

Final: #Sixers close out season with a 100-87 win over Miami. (It's their first winning streak since Dec. 29-Jan. 4, when they won 4 in row)

Christopher A. Vito

Casper Ware is a +15 in this game. Really.

Christopher A. Vito

Ray Allen's 3-pointer makes it a 16-5 Miami run. Sixers clinging to a 7-point lead with 6:30 to go.

Christopher A. Vito

Heat are on a 13-5 run to start the fourth. Sixers still up, 89-79.

Keith Pompey

#Sixers lead 84-66 after three quarters against the WE ARE ON CRUISE CONTROL Heat.

Bob Cooney

Dare I say I think this lead is safe for the Sixers tonight?

Bob Cooney

Four Sixers have three assists, no one has more

Bob Cooney

Brown went over to Wroten coming off the court and gave him a playful bear hug.They both laughed. Not sure what it was about.

Christopher A. Vito

#Sixers have the ball with 3:02 left in the third quarter, ahead 75-63...and Brett Brown calls a timeout. #coachablemoment #thingsiwontmiss

Christopher A. Vito

There's another 24-second violation Sixers forced against Heat this quarter. (Yes, I know. It's second-stringers vs. second-stringers.)

Christopher A. Vito

That possession, w/ MCW hanging all over D-Wade, was impressive as hell. So often has the rookie neglected defense this year. That was a gem

Christopher A. Vito

#Sixers' Elliot Williams hits one of two free throws with 2.3 seconds to go. Halftime: Sixers lead Heat, 55-51.

Bob Cooney

Looks like Adonis Thomas did something bad to a finger on his right hand. Headed to locker room.

Christopher A. Vito

Varnado's got a team option for the next two seasons. At the very least, he's played himself into a training-camp invite.

Christopher A. Vito

Jarvis Varnado with the turnaround hook shot, to give Sixers a 51-45 lead with 2:30 to go in the first half.

Christopher A. Vito

The Sixers are outscoring the Heat, 12-2, in fastbreak points.

Henry Sims with a slick bounce pass to Casper Ware, who was cutting through the lane.

Bob Cooney

Sixers already 6-for-12 on threes tonight. Ware just got his second

Bob Cooney

11 players saw action for the Sixers in the first quarter. That kind of game

Keith Pompey

#Sixers lead 29-27 after one Q over the shorthanded #Heat

Bob Cooney

36 minutes left in the Sixers season, but who's counting?
