Sixers vs. Spurs Immediate Reaction Thread: FUNDAMENTALS

Tony Parker barely had to play the fourth quarter of tonight's blowout Sixers loss. - Howard Smith-USA TODAY Sports

The San Antonio Spurs taught the Philadelphia 76ers how to play the game of basketball one fine Monday evening in November.

Pre-game I said tonight’s matchup between the Sixers and Spurs would be about defense. It ended up being about offensive efficiency, and the boys from Philadelphia ended up looking like the tank-o-rama we expected them to back in September.

The 76ers shot 41.5 percent from the floor while the Spurs moved the ball at a breakneck pace and embarrassed Brett Brown’s club.

The final score was just a 24-point margin, but this loss felt like a 40-point deficit.

The future is bright in Philadelphia with MCW and Brett Brown in town. But the Gregg Popovich and the Spurs showed the world how basketball is meant to be played tonight.
