Notes From The Sixers’ 98-84 Loss To Orlando76ers, BREAKING NEWS, News Tuesday, February 26th, 2013
- Once again, the Sixers treated their fans to some of the most unwatchable basketball that the NBA has to offer. The Orlando Magic, a team with only 16 wins, came into Philadelphia and whipped Doug Collins’ group.
- Anytime Jrue Holiday struggles, this team just has no prayer of victory. Holiday scored just nine points tonight, shooting just 4-11 from the floor.
- Anytime you can say Damian Wilkins was the Sixers’ best player, you know its been a really rough night. To his credit, Wilkins was one of the few guys that played hard tonight, and he finished the game tied with Jeremy Pargo for the team lead in points with 14.
- The starting lineup just seemed to be sleep-walking through the game. As a group, the shot just 13-41.
- Evan Turner did do a decent job getting to the free throw line, attempting 10 shots, and also collected eight rebounds.
- Starting center Spencer Hawes collected just one rebound in over 20 minutes on the floor. He was utterly dominated by former Sixer Nik Vucevic.
- By the way, to add insult to injury, former Sixers Vucevic and Moe Harkless both played exceptionally well. Vuc scored 12 points, and punished the Sixers on the glass for 19 rebounds. Harkless contributed 10 points of his own.
- After the game, Doug Collins sounded defeated and burnt out. It’s been a frustrating year for the head coach, he’s tried everything to reach these players, but nothing has worked.
- Adam Arron said it best on Twitter after the game. “To be blown out at home by Orlando is madding. Sixers fans deserve much better than this.”
