Philadelphia 76ers keep doing some of the 76er-iest things

I've been saying all season that the Sixers are going to be the worst team in NBA history.  Philly is now 2-21 overall and 0-12 at home.  No team has ever finished with fewer than nine wins in an 82-game season before (also the 76ers, who went 9-73 in 1972-73).  The current club is on pace to go 7-75 or 8-74.

Tonight Philadelphia actually led the 18-4 Memphis Grizzlies 95-77 with seven-and-a-half minutes remaining.  The Sixers allowed Memphis to score 32 points in a span of 7:15, and the game went to overtime tied 109-109.  I'm sure you can guess what happened after that.

The night before Philly fell to the Nets 88-70.  In that contest the Sixers scored just 25 points in the second half, including only 10 in the 4th quarter.  They connected on a total of four shots in the period.

On that same night, three NBA players made more two-point field goals on their own than the entire 76ers team did: LeBron James (15), Derrick Rose (14) and LaMarcus Aldridge (14).
