How Sixers Loss to Bulls Fits in History Books

I predict this pic will get a lot of use this season.

I commend Derek for even attempting a cogent recap for last night's game. The 45-point loss to the short-handed Chicago Bulls is historic in its embarrassment to a team that's only 6 games ahead of them in the standings. I figured there had to be something statistically relevant to just how bad of a whooping the Sixers were handed. Let's hit the history books for some bullet point facts I uncovered on Basketball Reference.

No sane person is deluding themselves into thinking these Sixers are a championship team, but even somewhat good teams don't lose by 45. To all of this, coach Doug Collins said: "It happens." Well, not to championship teams, Doug. Play your young guys. Trade Tony Battie. Thanks.

The Sixers are now 1-1 on the difficult 10-game road trip, after being handed a gift-wrapped win by the Magic when they had a half-team handicap. No rest for the awful, as they head to Boston to take on the scorching Celtics tonight.
