|Phoenix and Philadelphia both wanted to shove a horrible season of basketball down their fans' throats this year in the hope they'd be able to land a top pick in this summer's stacked draft. Phoenix blew their chances early and will probably have to fight and claw to hold on to the 7 or 8 seed in the West. The Sixers, well, they're still in the process of throwing away a golden opportunity.|

|A loss tonight helps the Sixers in two ways. The first is the obvious need to get as high up in the lottery as possible. The second is the Knicks futility is keeping the Pelicans from dropping further. Melo is having a good season, and it may not even be at the expense of team success this year. The rest of the Knicks are bad. Pitiful, really.|
|The 19-20 Washington Wizards would be the number five seed in the East if the season ended today. Sad as that may be, the Wizards might just be headed in the right direction. The Sixers need to get them up to .500 in today's matinee.|

|Your Charlotte Bobcats are currently the number eight seed in the Eastern Conference. A commentary on the horrid conference? An example of a bad team paying too much money to join the ranks of the mediocre? Or maybe a team on the rise? My money isn't on the last one. Sixers hosting the Bobcats tonight.|

|After last night's two-point win over the 26-8 Portland Trail Blazers, in Portland, the Sixers find themselves as close to home court in the first round of the playoffs as the worst record in the league. The seventh-worst record in the league would give them a 15% chance of moving up into the top three picks in the lottery. Here's the thing, though. When MCW plays, they aren't a .364 team, they're .500. Here's why...|

|Sacramento has cornered the market. The NBA is littered with players who look good, but actually kill teams. The two names at the top of that list? DeMarcus Cousins and Rudy Gay. Sacramento drafted one (then gave him a max contract), then went out and traded for the other. It's only a matter of time until Cousins throws a punch at Gay for hogging the ball, there are only so many possessions to waste, after all.|
|Now that players like Carmelo Anthony and Andre Iguodala have moved on, Ty Lawson is finally get a chance to show he can lead a team to mediocrity all on his own. The Nuggets have dropped seven straight, four straight at home. Tonight, the Sixers will see if they can toss a few more ping pong balls out the window and send a message to Brian Shaw saying maybe being an assistant coach for life isn't such a bad thing.|
