ugh - John E. Sokolowski-USA TODAY Sports
This is something.
The Sixers are, easily, the most Sixers team of all time. Even when they are the worst team in the league over a few-game span, they aren't bad enough to set fun records to talk about. All they had to do tonight was lose by 20 to become the 8th team in NBA history to lose 4 straight games by at least 20 points. They lost by 18. Inconsiderate jerks.
Nothing good came out of this game. They played offensive defense (hmmm) throughout, looking insanely lackluster from top to bottom and really not giving much of a shit at all. They've now gone 5-16 since starting 10-6 and I can't conceive of a situation in which they'd ever win a game again.
There was about a 4 minute stretch where they were dedicated to attacking the basket. They got to the foul line a bunch over that period. It was successful. Then, inexplicably, they stopped. And they lost. By a lot.
Thank you so much for being here, loyal reader. You must like the 10 of us quite a bit and for that we are very appreciative. It's certainly not because the Sixers are even remotely entertaining.
I'm actually not laughing about it this time. I don't really have many more funny things to say. This game is making me reflect on why we're committing any amount of time to them. Visit Raptors HQ. They're nice.
