On the bright spot, the #Sixers are without three starters tonight in this mismatch. However, this is still going to be a looooooong season.

Derek Bodner

Arnett Moultrie long two. Remember Sam Hinkie’s quote about caring more about expected value than if shot goes in?

Derek Bodner

I almost want the opposing team to make their free throws.

Bob Cooney

Sixers get backcourt violation, to open the second half. Never saw that

Derek Bodner

That seems like that’s about how the season will go.

Tom Moore

Updated total: #Sixers with 12 made field goals and 15 turnovers. Down 56-36 late second quarter. E Williams leads with 10 points.

Derek Bodner

Passing has not been on point tonight. Sloppy, sloppy, sloppy. #sixers

Bob Cooney

Of the celtics 20 three point attempts, 20 have been of the wide open variety. They've made 9

Bob Cooney

Evan Turner has 6 assists in 15 minutes

Bob Cooney

We not halfway through second quarter and teams have combined for 18 turnovers

Bob Cooney

Brandon Davies with a bank three-pointer from too of key. Yup. Celts up 12

Derek Bodner

Brandon Davies bank 3. Count it.

Bob Cooney

Arnett Moultrie and Elliott Williams both impressing so far for Sixers

Derek Bodner

Arnett Moultrie with the crossover pull-up long two. It went in, but get those out of your system when Sam’s not around.

Bob Cooney

Really interested in KJ McDaniels and his progression this season. He could be a solid nba player.

Derek Bodner

Nice D there by K.J. McDaniels. pressured his man on the perimeter and forced the steal. Will be fun to watch him progress this year.

Bob Cooney

Boston has as many threes (5) as Sixers do field goals. 33-17

John R. Finger

firing t-shirts into the crowd makes one wonder why they just don't hand out a few to everyone when they walk in.

Derek Bodner

That is one heck of a t-shirt canon.

Tom Moore

#Sixers with 4 made baskets and 5 turnovers so far. Down 27-12 to #Celtics.

Tom Moore

#Sixers have scored all but 20 of the game's first 25 points. #Celtics

Bob Cooney

Reminder, Nerlens Noel is out with upper respiratory infection

Bob Cooney

Celtics 6-10 from floor and lead 15-4 not yet midway through first.

Derek Bodner

Joel Embiid's brother, Arthur, has passed away. #sixers sbnation.com/e/6755396

Bob Cooney

Lots of shots hitting nothing but air for both teams early on

Tom Moore

Mix of cheers and boos when #Celtics Turner introduced at #Sixers game.

Derek Bodner

Hinkie takes a lot of grief for supposedly treating his players like expendable assets. But there’s a definite human element to this team.

Derek Bodner

Major props to Sam Hinkie and Brett Brown for being there with Joel Embiid during this tough time. #sixers

John R. Finger

the Sixers are going to shoot for it to determine who starts tonight.

Not seeing Nerlens Noel on court for shootaround this morning. No word in whether he's playing tonight. Battling flu

Derek Bodner

Can Dario Saric join the #sixers early? I take a look at whether this is a realistic possibility. sbnation.com/e/6751276
