Have you heard that the Sixers have lost a lot of games in a row? Yeah, I'm sure you have. I think we're at 24 now, which is exactly a third of an NBA season's worth of games. I remember what day the Sixers last won, since it was my mom's birthday, nearly two months ago.
Anyway, they're not going to win tonight. 25 games in a row will be the case after tonight, and in keeping up with the suggestion of not watching every game, you can probably take this one off. The Spurs have won 13 in a row and rested their starters in their last game. Who knows if they'll do it again?
But the Spurs, no matter who suits up, play beautiful basketball, and for someone like me that adores that, the game might be a watchable beatdown. Except I'm out of town and will probably have more important things to do.
Check out Pounding the Rock for Spurs-centric coverage, of a team that's more than running out the season. Per their game preview, the spread currently is at 21.5, which is the largest of this season so far. Only read that last part if sports gambling is legal in your parts. Also, I helped describe the Sixers' situation to Quixem Ramirez over at Project Spurs. Check that out for my go-to HP reference.
