Sixers On This Day of the Week: Friday

After a busy Wednesday and quiet Thursday, we have Friday. Friday’s the day we look forward to “Yeah it’s da weekend baby!”. I always enjoy a Sixers game on a Friday night. Let’s see how they did.

Friday saw 53 games. There’s a theme or maybe a better word template that the NBA follows when scheduling games. Teams face opponents in their division 4 times. Everybody else is 2-4 times but the opposite division meets only twice. Atlantic meets Pacific teams twice per team. Northwest meets Central, and Southwest meets Southeast. Anyway, I say this to say that the Sixers faced the Lakers twice on Friday for two seasons in a row. Wait, it gets better. For one season, they are 7 days apart. One Friday after another. Sometimes I wonder if the NBA does these things on purpose.

Anyway, Sixers went 26-27. So Friday’s been just about 50/50 (or for those of you that like exact numbers: .491). Anyway, Sixers may have had a losing record but they scored more points. 94.9 vs 93.1. They had a 6 game losing streak as well as a 4 game losing streak 3 times; silimar to what happened last year. It would appear that the lockout season hasn’t drastically changed things. I mean, I wasn’t expecting it but…well I don’t know what I was expecting. Here’s last year’s numbers.

Gettin ready for da weekend!
