#Sixers halftime scorers: Thompson 11, Noel 11, Covington 10,Canaan 8, Sims 6, McGee 6, Mbah a Moute 4, Sampson 2, Smith 2.

Derek Bodner

Did they change a 3 to a 2? I thought it was 61-61 just a second ago ...

Keith Pompey

#Sixers are shooting 7-for-16 on threes

Keith Pompey

Now, they are saying Canaan's shot is a two-pointer. #Sixers lead 61-60 at the half

Derek Bodner

The #sixers made 8 three pointers in a half. In a half. The Sixers. I can't. I just can't.

Keith Pompey

WOW! Canaan with a crazy, crazy, crasy three-pointer. I can't explain it. Just watch #SportsCenter tonight. It's sure to be a Top10 play

Keith Pompey

#Heat lead 61-58 with 29.5 seconds left in half

Keith Pompey

Canaan has two three pointes after making four last night.

Derek Bodner

(not like blown away, but it's been okay)

Derek Bodner

I've been mildly impressed with Isaiah Canaan's defense so far.

Keith Pompey

Score knotted at 53 with 2:50 left in half

Bob Cooney

Defense optional in this one right now

Keith Pompey

It's funny. Folks clown the #Sixers for tanking. But they''ve played hard against the Heat during the tank. Up 53-51 with 3:34 left in half

Keith Pompey

#Sixers lead 49-46 with 5:03 left in half

Derek Bodner

Nerlens might have bit on that Deng pump fake just a weeeeee bit.

Derek Bodner

Miami going with the 3 point guard lineup. Dragic must feel right at home.

Keith Pompey

They are playing the beats to a lot of old-school rap in here. You know your boy is digging it.

Bob Cooney

#Sixers shooting well, 49 percent from floor, 5-9 on threes

Keith Pompey

The teams are a combined 10-for-18 on 3s.

Derek Bodner

After making 13 three pointers for only the 2nd time last night, the #sixers are 5-9 from 3 with 7:43 left in the 2nd quarter.

Keith Pompey

Thompson with his third three-pointer to give #Sixers a 41-40 lead. He has 11 points.

Keith Pompey

#Sixers better find a way to do something to Henry Walker. He's has 11 points on 4-for-4 shooting - including three 3s. #HESKILLINGTHEM

Derek Bodner

As if I haven't been watching Ish Smith for almost a decade and couldn't possibly have an opinion on him before he plays for #Sixers

Bob Cooney

Tons of wide open looks tonight for Heat

Bob Cooney

Awfully quick that Ish Smith.

Derek Bodner

I legitimately just got twitter yelled at for commenting about Ish Smith's jumper and I need to give him time.

Keith Pompey

#Heat shot 61.9 percent in the first quarter

Keith Pompey

#Sixers GM Sam Hinkie is in the house

Keith Pompey

McGee has been very aggressive this game. He's shooting 3-for-3 for 6 points in the first quarter. #Heat lead 32-31 after 1.

Derek Bodner

Good: Ism Smith steal and gets up length of the court in the blink of an eye to draw a foul. Bad: Misses both free throws. Ish in a nutshell

Keith Pompey

Smith misses both of his foul shots

Keith Pompey

McGee shooting 2-for-2 so far

Bob Cooney

Ish Smith gets his first play with #Sixers late in first quarter

Keith Pompey

Smith makes his Sixers debut with 2:05 left in first quarter

Keith Pompey

Ish Smith getting ready to check in.

Derek Bodner

There's really an article titled "5 reasons the Phillies can compete this season." It was written in 2015. No lies.

Bob Cooney

Thompson with a three after three-step, no dribble, pull-up jumper

Derek Bodner

Nailed it RT @PhillyHoopsTalk: “@Derek Bodner: Man, he elevated on that three like he was shot by a ...” catapult

Bob Cooney

Canaan certainly has sweet stroke. #Sixers

Derek Bodner

Man, he elevated on that three like he was shot by a ...

Derek Bodner

Is that a BlackBerry Adam Silver is using? :+1: to old-school physical keyboards

Keith Pompey

#Heat lead 12-11 with 6:31 left in 1Q. #Sixers call timeout. They are shooting 5-for-12

Keith Pompey

: Talk a church bounce. Deng had to say atleast 50 Hail Marys on that three-pointer

Derek Bodner

Somebody seriously needs to figure out the shooting % when Noel uses his left hand down low vs right hand. Much better left-handed.

Bob Cooney

Brown pissed no one was on Deng for that three

Bob Cooney

Kind of strange how empty arena is here in Miami. How times have changed. #Sixers

Keith Pompey

Covington with a three-pointer to put Sixers up 5-4

Keith Pompey

Noel with a nice block on Whiteside

Keith Pompey

After missing their first four shots, Sims scores on a layup for #Sixers. They trail 4-2

Keith Pompey

I never understood #AmericanAirlinesArena. This is the place where fans always show up late. #Sixersinstagram.com/p/zdthMlTcL7/

Tom Moore

Big game for #Sixers, in part because of #Heat's top-10 protected pick they could get in June.

Keith Pompey

Some dude is repping the #Sixers down here in #WadeCounty as in Dwyane Wade. #76ers vs. #Heat @… instagram.com/p/zdsiFITcKY/

Derek Bodner

When asking for veterans, be careful what you wish for.

Derek Bodner

Every time I think "mentor", JaVale McGee is the first name to pop into my head.

Keith Pompey

#Heat starters vs. #Sixers: Luol Deng, Udonis Haslem, Hassan Whiteside, Dwyane Wade and Goran Dragic

Bob Cooney

Ish Smith said that he's heard new players shake hands with Brett Brown and then get minutes, so....

Keith Pompey

#Sixers starters vs. #Heat: Isaiah Canaan, Robert Covington, Luc Mbah a Moute, Henry Sims and Nerlens Noel.

Derek Bodner

I can now update my resume and say that "I've appeared in ESPN The Magazine", right? That seems fair.

Derek Bodner

Finally got my physical copy of ESPN Mag, was flipping through @PabloTorre's article and noticed the side of my head in one of the pictures.

Bob Cooney

Jerami Grant and Jason Richardson both out tonight for #Sixers at Heat

Keith Pompey

Jason Richardson (rest) and Jerami Grant(low back contusion) out tonight against the #Heat #Sixers

Derek Bodner

"Teams that have won have used analytics." "Analytics don't win, talent does." /me slaps forehead

Derek Bodner

Walberg has been on Brett Brown's season. Before that, he was an assistant on George Karl's staff in Denver.

Derek Bodner

Vance Walberg has left his position as an assistant coach with the #sixers to join George Karl's staff on the Sacramento Kings.

Derek Bodner

"Analytics never won an NBA championship!" -- ESPN Mag lists Mavericks and Spurs in the "All-In" section in analytics ranking. Oops.

Keith Pompey

#CalmBeforeTheStorm: #AmericanAirlinesArena 2 hours, 36 minutes before the #Sixers vs. #Heat game http://t.co/RDhRAhlvym

John Gonzalez

I’ll solve a Millennium Prize Problem before I figure out how to fold a fitted sheet.

Derek Bodner

Honestly, Larry Brown is probably my favorite coach in the time I've been watching #sixers. Great teacher. Want him near a front office? No.

Tom Moore

Think both are intriguing & could really help. Tough call. RT @Lou_Lopez814 @Tom Moore do you like mudiay or Russell more for sixers?

Derek Bodner

You could literally not find two better locker room vets than Jason Richardson and Luc Mbah a Moute. Great people to learn from.

Derek Bodner

I bet you Larry Brown can't name 7 people on the #sixers

Derek Bodner

aka J-Rich and Luc Mbah a Moute RT @975TheFanatic: Larry Brown: Sixers need help in locker room. You need role models in the locker room.

Tom Moore

Scheduled to be on @WIPMorningShow Tuesday at 9 am to talk #Sixers in wake of trade deadline deals. @rheahughes #76ers #NBA @S

Tom Moore

Link to #Sixers stories, Hinkie videos and poll question on what you think of #MCW trade: bit.ly/1vWlkTy #76ers #NBA @SixersBrown

Derek Bodner

MCW trade, to me, shows an indication towards taking next step towards building a team over just talent acquisition.

Derek Bodner

If you look below surface layer, by jettisoning away a point guard who can't shoot, the #Sixers have sneakily been showing a commitment.

Christopher A. Vito

In Minnesota, I'm not sure he needs an introduction. RT @Jerry Zgoda: Kevin Garnett's introductory news conference will be Tuesday at 3 pm

Christopher A. Vito

How do I put this delicately? OK, I got it: Running without headphones is the worst. vitoruns365.wordpress.com/2015/02/23/day…

Derek Bodner

NBA.com: "[Jackson's] shooting an abysmal 27.8 percent behind the arc, making him radioactive for the 76ers." <- Interesting.

Tony Wroten

Follow my bro @KeonLewis44. At UTSA going krazy. FOLLOW.

Derek Bodner

No reason to have any reasonable expectations on Ish Smith's jumper. Related: I've said the same thing about JaKarr Sampson and Jerami Grant

Christopher A. Vito

Just powered down Doritos with a swig of cold coffee. Breakfast of champions.

Luc Richard Mbah a Moute

Congrats 2 my Lions 4 qualifying 2 the next African Championship ! Watched the games from here n proud of you ! #237 http://t.co/PmeFSNYDgT

Derek Bodner

I like the #sixers (temporary) relevancy in the Philly media. I don't even care if I disagree with many, just nice to hear talk about team.

Keith Pompey

Derek Bodner

Sloan on Friday. Can't wait.

Derek Bodner

It is far easier to criticize a plan that attempts to get from the bottom to the top than it is to come up with a fullproof one of your own.

Derek Bodner

I'm going to update the draft pick tracker just about every morning. You can bookmark this page for the updates: nba.derekbodner.com/2015/02/23/six…

Derek Bodner

It's amazing that it takes 1,000 words and a wiki just to keep track of whether a night in the NBA is good or bad for the #sixers picks.

Derek Bodner

I completely forgot about the Lakers pick! Updated to include that: nba.derekbodner.com/2015/02/23/six…

Derek Bodner

A lot of games happened last night. How did they impact the #sixers upcoming draft picks? I took a look: nba.derekbodner.com/2015/02/23/six…

Derek Bodner

This is why you don't delay articles. Because good writers like @MaxRappaport steal your topic. Good stuff: nba.com/sixers/news/15…
