Power Ranking Roundabout’s John Schuhmann: 8

The Sixers have lost five of their last seven, with their four-man backcourt (Holiday, Meeks, Turner and Williams) combining to shoot 37 percent in that stretch. This is a team that could use the All-Star break, but they have a road back-to-back in Memphis and Houston before they get it.

ESPN’s Marc Stein: 7

A healthy Spencer Hawes was one of the first contenders to emerge in the MIP race now led by J-Lin. Now? Hawes is simply missed. The Sixers are 8-10 without him and an equally frustrating 0-5 in games decided by four points or fewer, which makes Philly the league’s only team without a win in those circumstances.

CBS Sports’ (and everywhere else’s) Matt Moore: 8

No team gets through a season without bad times. (Well, almost no teams — hat tip to Jordan’s Bulls.) The Sixers have hit theirs. They need to get to the break to regroup.

NBC Sports’ Kurt Helin: 8

They have lost five of seven as the schedule has turned hard and their guard play has struggled. – not posted this week
