    Game 27 (12-20-13): Sixers (7-19) vs. Nets (9-16)

    vs.

    Philadelphia 76ers - Brooklyn Nets

    Location: Wells Fargo Center, Philadelphia, PA
    Date: December 20th, 2013
    Time: 7:00 PM EST
    Broadcast: CSN (TV), 97.5 FM (Radio)

    Points per Game Assists per Game Rebounds per Game
    Sixers Turner 19.3 MCW 7.3 Hawes 9.0
    Nets Lopez 20.6 Williams 7.1 Garnett 7.2

    The Philadelphia 76ers have had some time to digest a 36-point defeat in Brooklyn, which came two days after they lost by 34 at home to Portland.

    The Nets appeared to be turning things around with that blowout win, but another poor defensive performance doomed them in their next game.

    Brooklyn looks for a fifth win in six meetings against the 76ers, who are searching for answers as they try to avoid dropping eight in a row for the first time in four years Friday night.

    The Nets (9-16) rolled past Philadelphia (7-19) on Monday as Joe Johnson made 10 3-pointers and scored a season-high 37 points in a 130-94 victory. The 76ers lost 139-105 to the Trail Blazers on Saturday and are last in the NBA with 111.2 points and 10.5 3-pointers allowed per game.

    "I mean everyone is just moving the ball against us good and we kind of get broken down into a scramble, and when we scramble it is not a good thing," guard James Anderson said.

    Brooklyn has also struggled defensively, allowing an average of 101.8 points to rank 23rd in the league. The Nets had given up 93.6 points per game in winning four of five before losing 113-107 at home to Washington on Wednesday.

    Paul Pierce had a season-high 27 points off the bench and Brook Lopez added 22 after missing two games with a sprained left ankle for the Nets, who gave up 12 3-pointers and were outrebounded 51-31. Brooklyn is 28th in the league with 8.7 3s allowed per game and 23rd with a minus-1.9 rebounding differential.

    "It's easy to sit here and talk to you guys about what kind of night I had, but bottom line, I really don't care. We lost the game. That's pretty much all that matters," Pierce said. "We come out here and try to win as a team. It's not about how good Paul Pierce is scoring.

    "Tonight we had the inability to rebound, we didn't defend the 3 and it cost us the game. That's all that I'm worried about right now."

    Philadelphia hasn't lost eight straight since a 12-game skid Nov. 20-Dec. 11, 2009, and it's hoping to get rookie point guard Michael Carter-Williams back on the court.

    Carter-Williams, averaging 17.7 points, 7.3 assists, 5.8 rebounds and an NBA-leading 3.1 steals, has missed each game of the losing streak due to a skin infection and soreness in his right knee. He returned to practice Wednesday and will be a game-time decision.

    "I hope I get the go-ahead to play," Carter-Williams said. "I'm not 100 percent sure yet."

    The 76ers are 1-10 without Carter-Williams.

    "I don't know if I was playing I would have been the huge difference and we'd start winning all these games," he said. "I'm just trying to come back and contribute to the team and get us going on the right track."

    Philadelphia has dropped 19 of 23 following a 3-0 start, and first-year coach Brett Brown said those struggles won't come to an end unless his team figures things out defensively.

    "We have to do what we're doing better. We don't do what we're doing well," Brown said. "Really a lot of what has happened is we don't get back on defense, in transition defense."

    I have a feeling we win this one.

    MCW's back, KG is probably out, Joe Johnson is a game time decision. Even though we just got crushed by these guys, they aren't that good and we're just due for a win.

    Will be happy with a L though.

    It'd really bother me if they finish below us, but I just love so much that we tried to be bad and the Knicks and Nets tried to win a championship and we all suck about the same. Especially given the draft pick and cap flexibility situations. It's just a magical time.

    Last 20 games we're 4-0 in OT and 0-16 in the rest. We're like the opposite of who we were a few years ago.

    Game 27 (12-20-13): Sixers (7-19) vs. Nets (9-16)

    I think it's that MCW knows how to get ET the ball in his spots where it doesn't take much to score. Takes the pressure off of him to set everyone up.
    Warning, my sig is NSFW. But hot damn is it hot:

    glad we won this one. i hate BKN so eff them especially after that last game and glad to see Thad have a big game in a winning effort with everything going on too. this roster at 100% is a playoff team in the East but I am sure glad Hinkie knows how to ensure things go according to plan.
