First the lockout news. There was some stuff about the season being in jeopardy if they couldn’t come to a deal. Well, Tuesday the sides met and could not come to a deal. Now the sides don’t have a meeting scheduled any time soon. Monday is the deadline to make a deal happen. If not, then the first two weeks of the season are cancelled. I personally didn’t think we’d see a whole season. I’m still a bit on the fence for if there will be a season at all.
Well on to the post.
Wednesday saw…oh my…61 games. Wow. That’s roughly 25% or a whole fourth of all of the 246 games in the three seasons we’re covering. I mentioned that Saturday and Sunday represented 24% of the games. Their top winning streak was 6 games. Their longest losing streak is 4 games, 3 times. They faced the Raptors the most by meeting 7 times. Included in those meetings they faced the Raptors for two Wednesdays in a row. In case you forgot, when I say two Wednesdays in a row, I don’t necessarily mean 7 days apart. I mean two scheduled Wednesdays in a row.
They went 28-33 for a .459 winning record. Not bad. PPG was 99.2 versus 99.5. A very, very close loss. To get an idea of points scored, Sixers had 6051 total points and their opponents had 6067 points in all. That’s a difference of only 16 points.
We still have not seen that legendary day of the week with only 7 games played on the day of the week. It’s only two days left. You probably could figure out which day it was. But, it makes sense that Wednesday would have so many days and the other day has only 7 games.
