Sixers On This Day Of The Week: Tuesday

Tuesday has to be the most bizarre day we’ve seen so far. And…it’s the worse day so far too. They played 33 games. And won only one-third (11) of them. So that’s .333 winning record. Want some bizarre stuff? The Wizards were their opponent for 3, yes 3 Tuesdays in a row. They faced the Wizards the most at 5 times. But wait! There was another team they faced 5 times as well. The Celtics. And they faced the Celtics two Tuesdays in a row. The catch? It was separated by two seasons, the last Tuesday of 08-09 and the first Tuesday of 09-10. It starts to make you wonder if there is a system in scheduling games. Oh, by the way, the two Celtics games and the 3 Wizards games all came after each other. So it was Celtics for two in a row, then Wizards for three in a row.

Their PPG was 97.3 versus 101.3. So they lost by an average of 4 points. The most they’ve lost in a row is 6, twice. The most they’ve won in a row is 3. Tuesday has not been kind to our guys. 13% of the games were on Tuesday.

Hey, Wednesday has to be better right? Sure it will. Just so you know, I’m writing as I go. I did some research earlier in terms of who they played but I haven’t crunched the numbers until I start writing the posts.
