During the lockout I, along with all of the NBA basketball world, got bored. So, for a week, I looked at the Sixers’ record for a certain day of the week in the past 3 seasons. Welp, I’m doing it again. Just like before, the past 3 seasons will be looked at. 09-10 season, 10-11 season, and 11-12 season. Since today is Wednesday, we’ll start there. Over the course of the 3 seasons, there were 230 games played.
Wednesday had 59 games. That’s 26% of games played. Sixers went only 24-35 which is a .407 winning percentage. The most Wednesday’s they’ve won in a row is 3 twice while the most lost in a row is 4 four times They faced the Raptors the most times at 6 times, including two times where they met two Wednesdays in a row. I should make a point here: When I say 2 days of the week in a row, I mean the times when the Sixers played, not necessarily by calender. That sounded weird. In better words(?): Two scheduled games in a row for that day of the week. That feels better.
Anyway, the Sixers scored 97.3 PPG and their opponents scored 97.1. BARELY won that month despite their losing record. Here’s an idea of the total points: Sixers had 5738 points. The opponents had 5730. 8 point difference. Awesome. Since the Sixers lost more than won, it most likely means that the Sixers blew out their opponents and/or their losses were very close.
Here’s last year’s post for Wednesday. You’ll notice it looks similar to this post. I guess a lockout season doesn’t change much. I’m sure you can guess which day is next.
