Former 76ers guard Andre Miller is one of the more easygoing players in the NBA. He laughs a lot, and very rarely does Miller have a negative word to say about anyone, especially his old Sixers teammates. But anyone who saw Miller almost single-handedly end the 76ers' home winning streak at six games Wednesday night at the Wells Fargo Center might think that Miller has nothing but loathing and malice in his heart for a team he played just a little over two seasons for before leaving via free agency.

TODAY WOULD BE one of those days where it would be good for the 76ers if point guard Andre Miller were a little less unusual. Miller has never revealed a lot about himself during his tenure with the Sixers, and it was always hard for fans, management and his teammates to get a read on what exactly was going through his mind. Does he like Philadelphia? Does he want to remain a Sixer? Is he happy with the progress of the program? Yes, no, maybe so. It depended on how you interpreted what Miller might have said on any particular day. And that was fine when Miller was under contract and the Sixers had final say in whether he would stay or go. That all changed at the end of the season when Miller became an unrestricted free agent with the autonomy to decide his next NBA destination.

Rodney Carney never knows when he is going to enter a game or how long he will stay in, but the 76ers' second-year guard always wants to be ready. Last night, with the Sixers' backcourt depleted and a sellout crowd of 22,076 smelling blood, Carney proved to be ready in his best performance of the season. With Carney scoring 16 points while hitting 7 of 10 shots from the field, the Sixers stunned the Detroit Pistons, 83-82, at the Palace of Auburn Hills. The Sixers were without guard Willie Green, who missed the game with a lower back strain.

Detroit Pistons point guard Chauncey Billups has always been known as a money player who provided his best work in the postseason. Yet a major reason the 76ers hold a two-games-to-one lead in their best-of-seven series against the Pistons is that Billups has failed to make an impact. Game 4 is 7 tonight at the Wachovia Center. Billups, the NBA Finals MVP in 2004 when Detroit won the championship, is averaging 11.3 points and 4.7 assists, while shooting 8 for 26 from the field (30.8 percent)

Playing their first game since Allen Iverson was traded to the Denver Nuggets, the shorthanded 76ers suffered a 101-93 loss to the Indiana Pacers last night at the Wachovia Center. It marked their 12th defeat in a row. With newly acquired Andre Miller and Joe Smith having yet to report to the team, the 76ers went into the game shorthanded, and injured big men Chris Webber and Steve Hunter did not play. The last time the Sixers lost 12 games in a row was during the 1996-97 season.

The 76ers got much better grades as individuals than they did as a team, according to three NBA scouts. But either way, the outlook is not good for this season. "I can't have high hopes for them," one of the scouts said. Three scouts - we'll call them Scout 1, Scout 2 and Scout 3 - agreed to critique the Sixers anonymously because they do not want teams to know their opinions. Two of the scouts - Scout 1 and Scout 2 - discussed the players. Scout 3 talked mostly about a team that went 35-47 last season.

PERHAPS THE most impressive player for the 76ers last July at the Orlando Pro Summer League was Temple product Khalif Wyatt. That play has led to him signing a multiyear contract with the team, according to a team source. Wyatt, who went undrafted in June, averaged 13.8 points, 3.2 assistas and 1.6 steals in Orlando. The combo guard can handle the ball and has a quirky offensive game, much like former Sixers point guard and NBA veteran Andre Miller. He has an uncanny ability to get to the basket and draw fouls from anywhere on the court.

Shortly before tip-off of the 76ers' 98-90 win against the Seattle SuperSonics on Monday, Sixers president and general manager Ed Stefanski felt compelled to talk about a popular subject: trade rumors regarding Andre Miller. Since Stefanski dealt Kyle Korver on Saturday to the Utah Jazz for Gordan Giricek and a future first-round pick, his phone has been ringing. The calls have come from reporters and NBA executives figuring that phase two of his plan will involve dealing Miller.

With the NBA's free-agent period beginning today, 76ers president and general manger Ed Stefanski plans to talk with Andre Miller's agent. If Stefanski cannot work out a deal with agent Andy Miller to keep the point guard with the Sixers, a sign-and-trade deal is a possibility. The Portland Trail Blazers are believed to be interested in Miller, and they have a point guard in Steve Blake who spent his first two seasons in the NBA playing with the Washington Wizards under Eddie Jordan, now the Sixers' coach.

According to a source with knowledge of the situation, the 76ers reached out this week to the agent for Atlanta Hawks guard Mike Bibby, only to find that the 10-year veteran is intent on staying with the team he played for the last two seasons. With the uncertainty of the Sixers' relationship with guard Andre Miller - he also is a free agent, and there are no signs that he plans to return - the team may be in need of a veteran point guard for first-year coach Eddie Jordan. There is not much separating Miller, 33, and Bibby, 31, either in performance or contract requests.

SACRAMENTO - Say what you will about not wanting the 76ers to win too many games in order to get the best possible draft pick - and it probably is a good idea - but being around the Denver Nuggets on Wednesday and seeing all the troubles they are going through certainly makes you see how hard it is to endure those times. Since the beginning of training camp, Sixers coach Brett Brown has said that he was on board with building this group for the future, improving the talent of the many young players and evaluating which ones might be able to help the organization in the future.

THE NBA free-agent period has begun — at least the discussing of contracts and the rumor mill part of it. And all the talk and rumor-mongering will continue to pile up and draw flies until the free agents can actually start signing on July 11. But to help out some of the teams, we've categorized a few of the restricted and unresticted free agents into groups that will make it easier for general managers to sort through. The "I was drafted before Allen Iverson" squad: Grant Hill (39)

LeBron James decided not to play in New York two summers ago. He won't be playing there any more this season, either. The Knicks have been put away, and the Miami Heat are headed to the second round of the NBA playoffs. James had 29 points, eight rebounds and seven assists, Chris Bosh and Dwyane Wade both scored 19 points and the Heat ousted the Knicks, 106-94, in Game 5 of the Eastern Conference first-round series Wednesday night in Miami. Miami won the series four games to one, and will meet Indiana in the East semifinals starting Sunday in Miami.

WITH THE TWO starting centers felled by injury, it figured that guard play would be important in last night's 76ers-Denver Nuggets game. What wasn't figured on, at least not by the Sixers, was that castoff Andre Miller would be the difference. Miller, not re-signed by the Sixers after the 2008-09 season so the team could give drafted point guard Jrue Holiday the keys to the organization, stung his old team to the tune of 28 points, 10 assists and eight rebounds in just under 39 minutes in a 108-104 overtime win by the Nuggets.

There's no correct way to feel about the 76ers' tradeless trade deadline. If you're generally an impatient, the-grass-is-always-greener type, you're likely troubled that the Sixers did nothing to improve their situation before Thursday's NBA trading deadline. Chances are good you're also frustrated when the Eagles punt on fourth and 1 from midfield. If you're more a practical, patient, bird-in-the-hand type, then you're likely relieved the Sixers didn't jeopardize their situation by acquiring some new player and messing with the fragile chemistry coach Doug Collins has created.

Approaching game's end, the 76ers ignored the scoreboard. Those flashing numbers showed too big a lead, with too little time left, and those numbers could have tricked them into thinking the game was already won. The Sixers have felt that pain before. Which could be why in the final minutes of Tuesday night's 88-79 victory over the Portland Trail Blazers, the Sixers defended as if it were tied, executed on offense as if they were trailing, and called time-outs as if they needed a strategic overhaul.

Long before last season began, it was decided by the 76ers organization not to re-sign starting point guard Andre Miller. That spot would go to Lou Williams, a player who hadn't started in the NBA and isn't really suited to play that position. Halfway through the season, the job was given to rookie Jrue Holiday, and big things are expected from him now. Holiday is happy to be a starter in the league, and thrilled that he got his opportunity last season. Still, if he had his way, he would have liked last year to have gone a bit differently.
