Philadelphia 76ers 80 FinalRecap | Box Score 123 Golden State Warriors
Thaddeus Young, PF 28 MIN | 5-15 FG | 2-2 FT | 2 REB | 0 AST | 3 STL | 0 BLK | 4 TO | 12 PTS | -31Depsite 8 first half points, last night was one of the few times all year I have seen Thad look tired.  He was a -31 on the night.

Evan Turner, SF 32 MIN | 6-13 FG | 0-0 FT | 4 REB | 2 AST | 3 STL | 0 BLK | 2 TO | 12 PTS | -23Zero FTAs from your starting SF is unaccceptable.  You can actually see his trade value going down the toilet.

Spencer Hawes, C 25 MIN | 3-10 FG | 0-1 FT | 6 REB | 4 AST | 2 STL | 0 BLK | 0 TO | 6 PTS | -20You know things are going bad when Spence can not find his shooting stroke.

Michael Carter-Williams, PG 31 MIN | 8-18 FG | 7-10 FT | 4 REB | 3 AST | 0 STL | 0 BLK | 4 TO | 24 PTS | -17It was nice to see MCW find his shooting stroke for a night and he did a great job getting to the FT line.  Ten points in the 1st Q through the early 2nd Q kept the 76ers in this game, but it wasn’t enough.  However, he had more TOs (4) than dimes (3).

James Anderson, SG 26 MIN | 1-6 FG | 0-0 FT | 1 REB | 2 AST | 0 STL | 0 BLK | 1 TO | 2 PTS | -42In his last two games JA is averaging 2 points per night while shooting 2-12 from the field and 0-8 from deep.

Lavoy Allen, PF 25 MIN | 2-5 FG | 0-0 FT | 6 REB | 1 AST | 1 STL | 1 BLK | 0 TO | 4 PTS | -23Don’t let the stats fool you.  Lavoy didn’t do anything while this game was competitive in the 1st and early 2nd Q.

Arnett Moultrie, PF 18 MIN | 1-3 FG | 0-0 FT | 4 REB | 0 AST | 0 STL | 1 BLK | 0 TO | 2 PTS | -12I don’t have a single note on Moultrie from last night, so he couldn’t have played that well.

Lorenzo Brown, PG 4 MIN | 1-2 FG | 0-0 FT | 3 REB | 1 AST | 0 STL | 0 BLK | 0 TO | 2 PTS | -3Moving on…

Elliot Williams, SG 26 MIN | 2-6 FG | 2-2 FT | 3 REB | 1 AST | 1 STL | 0 BLK | 2 TO | 7 PTS | -16A nice bucket in the mid 1st Q was the only thing Williams did when this game was watchable.

Tony Wroten, SG 26 MIN | 4-12 FG | 1-2 FT | 5 REB | 1 AST | 0 STL | 0 BLK | 4 TO | 9 PTS | -28The streaky Wroten came crashing back to reality last night thanks to 33% shooting and 4 TOs

Your team is setting all sorts on NBA and franchise records — of the NOT GOOD kind.

Six Things We Saw Last Night…

  1. It was evident early on that the Sixers had little interest in this game, yet the GSW allowed them to hang around for 1+ quarters. Than leading by 8 in the mid-2nd Q, the Warriors found their groove, put on a 13-0 run (12 by Mo Speights), extended their lead to 20-points and never looked back.
  2. Mo Speights continued the trend of teams/individuals establishing franchise records or career/season highs against the 76ers. Speights (former 76ers 2008 1st-round draft pick) scored a career-high 32 points on 12-for-15 shooting. Mo’s display triggered “M-V-P” chants at Oracle Arena. Mo put up dropped 17 2nd Q points to help give the Warriors a 33-point halftime lead.
  3. According to numerous reports, by the time reporters were allowed in the visiting locker room at Oracle Arena late Monday night, most of the 76ers already had cleared out.
  4. Coach Brown said before the game that he was happy his team had a chance to quickly atone for its horrendous showing in Los Angeles.   So much for that idea…
  5. According to STATS, this team was so close to being historically bad over the last two games as they nearly matched the NBA mark for the largest total margin of defeat in consecutive games.  The Detroit Pistons lost by 95 points combined in back-to-back games in November 1966.
  6. Via ESPN Stats & Info: The Sixers are the second team in NBA history to lose by 40-plus points in consecutive games. The 1993-94 Sixers were the other one.  No other team in NBA history has lost two straight games by at least 40 points each.  The 76ers franchise has now done it twice.  The Sixers have never led at any point in the game during in their last to blowout L’s.

    This is embarrassing. Something has to be done with this group. There are 3 players who have been told they will be traded from the beginning. Defense and effort does not exist. There is no pride. There is absolutely no communications. (e.g., look at Toney Wroten last night who goes supper fast and passes the ball to Golden State. This is comedy, not basketball).
    Noels, Wiggins and Embiids cannot do anything for this team, if some corrective action is not devised by season end. Take the all star break and do some sole searching.
