And You Get A Franchise Record! And You Get A Franchise Record!

Philadelphia 76ers 92 Final
Recap | Box Score
125 Oklahoma City Thunder
Thaddeus Young, PF 23 MIN | 3-13 FG | 0-0 FT | 4 REB | 3 AST | 0 STL | 0 BLK | 3 TO | 6 PTS | -29Tough night for Thad, who ended up on the wrong end of a couple tough calls tonight (including one that led to a Brett Brown technical in the first half.) He was also on the wrong end of a Kevin Durant scoring rampage.
Michael Carter-Williams, PG 33 MIN | 4-12 FG | 5-8 FT | 4 REB

The BS of ‘Building Bad Habits’

Image from @ScarletMcKfever

Tanking has been seen as a necessary, albeit frustrating evil for the Sixers. Though many have had trouble coming to grips with it, the prevailing wisdom was that a 20-win season would be worth it in the end.

But in the wake of Monday night’s blowout loss to the lowly Milwaukee Bucks — Philadelphia’s 11th straight — many started questioning whether the Sixers are too bad for their own good. The Delaware County Times’ Dennis Deitch, for instance, offered a fairly extensive collection of these thoughts on Twitter last night (in response to Aaron McKie’s postgame anti-tank rant).

How Did Milwaukee Score 130 Points?

Milwaukee Bucks 130 Final
Recap | Box Score
110 Philadelphia 76ers
Thaddeus Young, PF Shot Chart 34 MIN | 11-19 FG | 3-4 FT | 5 REB | 7 AST | 6 STL | 0 BLK | 2 TO | 28 PTS | -4Watching Thad Young play on a team destined to lose is getting sadder by the day. While Evan Turner and Spencer Hawes were granted exile, Young remains, the best player on an otherwise dilapidated roster. You’re just not going to find many guys who will chase down players on fast breaks with their team down 20+

The Sixers Defense Needs… Less Help?

There is plenty of good to take away from the first half of the 2013-14 season; the emphasis of the 3-point shot, Michael Carter-Williams’ development, and the fun, easy-to-watch pace.

The defensive effort, however, has been mostly cringe inducing. Gone is the defense from the Doug Collins era, and in its place is a unit that ranks dead last in points allowed (109.9 points) and 25th in defensive rating (106.0). That’s a major regression from last year’s 15th-ranked 103.0 defensive rating.

This year’s personnel is different, but not necessarily any less capable defensively. So why the decline?

Brooklyn’s In The House, But Why Is Evan Turner?

Philadelphia 76ers 102 FinalRecap | Box Score 108 Brooklyn Nets
Evan Turner, SF Shot Chart 34 MIN | 3-8 FG | 3-3 FT | 5 REB | 2 AST | 0 STL | 0 BLK | 4 TO | 9 PTS | -12In the midst of intensifying trade rumors, Turner was… well he was in Brooklyn tonight. That counts for something, right? Had some nice “hero ball” moments down the stretch, but was pretty quiet overall and consistently awful on rotations.

Kevin Durant – Better Than the Sixers

Oklahoma City Thunder 103 FinalRecap | Box Score 91 Philadelphia 76ers
Thaddeus Young, PF Shot Chart 36 MIN | 5-17 FG | 2-3 FT | 10 REB | 3 AST | 8 STL | 0 BLK | 3 TO | 13 PTS | -16Though not up to the standard that Young has set for himself this year, this was what many fans have come to think of as a quintessential Thad performance. Diving for loose balls, cleaning up garbage around the basket, and jumping into passing lanes, he was everywhere tonight. When he’s finally on a good team,
