Sixers Finish February 0-11

Orlando Magic 101 Final
Recap | Box Score
90 Philadelphia 76ers
Thaddeus Young, PF Shot Chart 35 MIN | 7-18 FG | 5-6 FT | 3 REB | 3 AST | 2 STL | 1 BLK | 1 TO | 19 PTS | -16Thad scored 19 but was … meh. His outside game continued to regress and he struggled on the glass.

Henry Sims, C Shot Chart 23 MIN | 4-9 FG | 2-2 FT | 6 REB | 0 AST | 0 STL | 1 BLK | 1 TO | 10 PTS | +4Saw some good things from Sims tonight. He moves pretty well for a large human, has a nice face-up game and he blocked Tobias Harris relatively disrespectfully. That’s all it takes to earn a passing grade on the Sixers this season. Plus, he was one of two net-positive players wearing red and white tonight (+4).

Michael Carter-Williams, PG Shot Chart 32 MIN | 3-13 FG | 2-3 FT | 6 REB | 4 AST | 3 STL | 0 BLK | 3 TO | 8 PTS | -15Rookies hit walls. MCW has hit a tidal wave.

Hollis Thompson, SG Shot Chart 25 MIN | 2-4 FG | 0-0 FT | 7 REB | 1 AST | 0 STL | 1 BLK | 1 TO | 6 PTS | -6Hollis had a high-efficiency night. He did a lot without requiring the ball, knocked down two threes on four attempts, put together a nice haul on the glass, and played some better-than-typical-Thompson defense. Not to mention, he played some Dorell Wright-esque stretch four tonight and it was beautiful.

Arnett Moultrie, PF Shot Chart 16 MIN | 0-2 FG | 0-0 FT | 0 REB | 0 AST | 0 STL | 1 BLK | 1 TO | 0 PTS | 0Remember when they traded a first-round pick for this guy?

By The Numbers

This was the first winless month for the franchise since March of 1973, the season they went 9-73.

Parting Shots

The Magic just broke their 16-game road losing streak in Philly, and the Sixers are now 15-43. They’re 3.5 games ahead of (behind?) the Bucks. The spotlight is on you, Milwaukee. Don’t disappoint.

    Here is what you do, if you are, well, me – (which I wouldn’t necessarily wish upon anyone.) But seriously, if I am the G.M. of the 76ers, I draft my guy Delon, as MCW’s ~major upgrade~ replacement, and trade MCW for yet another first round pick. You know, someone who can actually hit the ocean with a beach ball from five feet away, metaphorically speaking, and who will not be going through “The Tidal Wave From Hell,” just because it’s his rookie season in the NBA.

    (Is MCW’s acclamation election to the HOF on hold, yet?)

      Well, Delon Wright will go late second-round or undrafted if he comes out this year (which he probably won’t), so no rush on him. He’s also not an NBA-caliber point guard. Just because he’s shooting 60% (for a team that’s 8th in the Pac-12) doesn’t mean he’s better than MCW.

      I agree however that MCW is by no means untouchable.
