08:08 AM ET 12.18 | Over the course of the next 19 days, Philadelphia will play 11 games, 10 of which will come on the road -- some, if not most, without star point guard Jrue Holiday. Asked whether this was the toughest part of the schedule, Holiday replied: "I think it is. I think this is where, as a team, we're going to come together. I think we play really well on the road, so it's going to be fun." That is certainly an optimistic way of looking at things, especially the way the team has been playing. ... Whether home or away, the type of basketball being displayed isn't a winning one. Perhaps the road will be a place to right some wrongs. Really, there is no other choice over the next few weeks.

QUOTE(#6):

76ers are 12-12 and the Lakers are a wet 11-14.

That's true, but the difference is that the Lakers are finally starting to get healthy. The 76ers aren't.

I'd also like to add that I'm pulling for the 76ers tart to play better and that Bynum puts everything together. Even though he is no longer a Laker, I hope he has a great career going forward and does well.

Fixed. I'm sure where the "tart" came from.

I am not a 76er fan but to say the next 10 games will determine their season is crazy they are 12-12 and in the east
