Game 24

New York Knicks @ Philadelphia 76ers
The Spectrum
November 29, 1972

In a case of art imitating life, the Sixers return home to The Spectrum after their road win against the Braves and run smack dab into a harsh dose of reality as the visiting Knickerbockers bludgeon them by 48 points, 134-86. This was the same margin of victory as in the actual game where New York prevailed 139-91.

New York had 6 players in double figures, with 2 others falling just short of that mark. Dave DeBusschere lead the assault with 26 points, followed by "Clyde" Frazier with 23. "Dollar Bill" Bradley just missed 20 points as he totaled 19. Rounding out the double digit scorers were Earl "The Pearl" Monroe with 17 points, John Gianelli with 12, and Jerry Lucas with 11. Dick Barnett with 9 and Willis Reed with 8 both came close to the 10 point mark. At the bottom of the scoring column were Henry Bibby with 5 points and Dean "The Dream" Meminger with 4.

So many great nicknames on New York !

Philadelphia had 3 players score in double digits, with a couple of others coming close, but overall this was just a woeful game. Fred Carter topped the Sixers in scoring with 24 points, followed by John Block with 16 and Leroy Ellis with 13. Kevin Loughery and Manny Leaks netted 8 points each, with Dave Sorenson adding 7. The ship that was righted in the win at Buffalo capsized in The Spectrum as the bottom 4 players in the scoring column for Philadelphia totaled just 10 points.

The Sixers are now 0-3 vs the Knicks this season, losing by 54, 27, and 48 points.





Next Game:
12/1/72 vs Boston at The Spectrum. The Sixers are 0-1 vs the Celtics this season, losing by 33 points at the Garden.


actual result:
New York - 139
Philadelphia - 91


Philadelphia record:
actual (2-22)
replay (4-20)

Game 25

Boston Celtics @ Philadelphia 76ers
The Spectrum
December 1, 1972

The Celtics roll into Philadelphia and drub the hapless Sixers by 52 points, 143-91.

Boston had 6 players notch double digits for the game, with another just missing that level. Jo Jo White topped the Celtics in scoring as he netted 30, followed by Dave Cowens who totaled 23. Paul Silas with 19, Don Nelson with 18, and John Havlicek with 17 all came close to the 20 point mark. Paul Westphal rounded out the double digit scorers as he tossed in 11, while Art Williams just missed joining that group as he put up 9 points.

The Sixers had 2 players reach 20 points but they didn't have the horsepower, or man power, to play at Boston's level. John Block hit 24 to lead the scoring, with Fred Carter next at 20. Leroy Ellis with 12, and Kevin Loughery with 11, were the only other Sixers to put up double figures in the scoring column.





Next Game:
12/2/72 at Boston. The Sixers are 0-2 vs the Celtics this season, losing by 33 at the Garden and the above noted 52 at the Spectrum.


actual result:
Boston - 105
Philadelphia - 99

Game 26

Philadelphia 76ers @ Boston Celtics
Boston Garden
December 2, 1972

If you're holding a ticket for the Blowout Trifecta, you can cash it in. For the third game in a row the Sixers are trounced, making each of those tickets a winner. Just one day after being hammered by the Celtics in Philadelphia, the Sixers are once again a bunch of nails as the Celtics pound them at the Garden by 30 points, 129-99.

The story of the game for the Celtics isn't that they had 6 players in double figures. Nor is it that one of those double digit scorers just missed 30, and three others barely missed 20. It isn't even that John Havlicek topped the scoring column with 29. The real story of the game for Boston is reserve Guard Art Williams and his unexpected on court performance. Williams averaged 3.2 PPG during the '72-73 season, yet when the final horn sounded the scorebook showed that he had hit for 19 points. The Sixers have a way of making a lot of opponents look very good.

Philadelphia had 4 players total double digits, with a couple of others just a field goal away. Fred Carter led the scoring as he put up 22, followed by John Block with 19, John Trapp with 16, and Kevin Loughery with 14. Freddie Boyd and Manny Leaks came close to double figures as they each notched 8. Leroy Ellis with 7 and Dave Sorenson with 5 rounded out the points for the Sixers. Once again the bottom of the scoring column lacked production as Dale Schlueter and Hal Greer combined for a goose egg.





Next Game:
12/6/72 vs the Kansas City-Omaha Kings at The Spectrum. The Sixers are 0-2 vs the Kings this season.


actual result:
Philadelphia - 120
Boston - 131


Philadelphia record:
actual (2-24)
replay (4-22)

Game 27

Kansas City - Omaha Kings @ Philadelphia 76ers
The Spectrum
December 6, 1972

The Sixers returned to The Spectrum after their pounding in Beantown, unfortunately for the Philadelphia fans it was the same old group of Sixers that returned. The Kansas City - Omaha Kings paid a visit and left with their third win in three games against the Sixers this season, 140-120.

The Kings had 8 double digit scorers, led by Nate "Tiny" Archibald with 38. Sam Lacey was second in the scoring column as he totaled 20, followed by Tom Van Arsdale with 19, and Matt Guokas with 12. Don Kojis, Nate Willimas, and Ron Riley each had 11, with Toby Kimball rounding out the double digit scoring as he finished with 10 points. Johnny Green with 7 and Mike Ratliff with 1 completed the scoring for the Kings.

Philadelphia had 7 players in double figures, with an 8th falling just short of that mark, but as has been the case many times this season, the team effort just wasn't enough. Fred Carter led the scoring with 22 points, with Leroy Ellis also reaching the 20 point mark on the number. John Trapp was next in scoring as he hit for 16 points, followed by Manny Leaks with 15, Kevin Loughery with 14, John Block with 13, and Mike Price with 10. Freddie Boyd was a bucket short of double figures as he put up 8 points. Yet again the bottom of the Philadelphia scoring column contributed all but nothing as Dale Schlueter scored just 2 points and Hal Greer was once again left holding a goose's egg. Schlueter and Greer have combined for just 2 points over the last two games.





Next Game:
12/7/72 vs Phoenix in Pittsburgh, PA. The Sixers are 1-0 against the Suns this season, winning 111-100 on November 12 in Phoenix.


actual result:
Kansas City-Omaha - 117
Philadelphia - 122


Philadelphia record:
actual (3-24)
replay (4-23)

Thank you !

I hadn't meant to go such a long time between postings, I've just had a lot of things going on that ate into my gaming time a bit. That in turn made finding time to post very problematic.

You're right about the Sixers' defense, bad is putting it mildly. They must have gotten overconfident after that season opening win in Chicago. Smile

The Sixers are like the 62 Mets, In fact the Mets are actually better than this group from Philly.

It must be disheartening to play the Sixers who continually lose. It would be like replaying the Browns of the past few years or the Lions when they lost every game.

I go into every game expecting them to lose, so when they do win it's a pleasant surprise.

Three of their four wins have been very surprising, especially that season opener against the Bulls. Whenever the unexpected happens that's like the cherry on top !

Game 28

Phoenix Suns -v- Philadelphia 76ers
Pittsburgh, PA
December 7, 1972

It's said that revenge is a dish best served cold. While that old saying isn't referring to the weather, the Sixers should have taken the weather as an omen. After a high of 60 degrees in Pittsburgh on December 6, the high on December 7 was only 27 degrees. The Suns took advantage of the cold and got revenge for an earlier loss to the Sixers, winning by 10 points, 126-116.

Phoenix had 3 players hit for 20 or more, while The Hawk, Connie Hawkins, missed reaching that mark by an old fashioned 3 point play. Charlie Scott topped the Suns in scoring with 29, with Dick Van Arsdale notching 23, and Neal Walk putting up 20. Hawkins was next with 17, followed by Walt Wesley with 9, Mo Layton with 8, Clem Haskins and Corky Calhoun each with 6, Lamar Green with 5, and Scott English at the bottom of the scoring column with 3.

The Sixers had 5 players in double digits with 2 others barely missing that level, and they matched the Suns in 20 point scorers, but it wasn't enough. Fred Carter led Philadelphia with 28, while John Block and Kevin Loughery were next with 20 each. The double digit scoring was rounded out by John Trapp and Leroy Ellis who each tossed in 10. Freddie Boyd at 9, and Manny Leaks at 8, both just missed getting double figures. Dave Sorenson was next with 6, followed by Hal Greer with 4, and Dale Schlueter with 1, in familiar spots at the bottom of the scoring list.





Next Game:
12/8/72 vs Chicago at The Spectrum. The Sixers are 1-0 against the Bulls this season, winning the first game of the year on October 10 in Chicago, 100-98.


actual result:
Phoenix - 117
Philadelphia - 102


Philadelphia record:
actual (3-25)
replay (4-24)

Game 29

Chicago Bulls @ Philadelphia 76ers
The Spectrum
December 8, 1972

Like Phoenix did in the previous game, Chicago avenged an earlier loss to Philadelphia by thrashing the Sixers at The Spectrum, 136-109.

The Bulls had 6 players in double figures, topped by Bob "Butterbean" Love who netted 30. "Chet the Jet" Walker was second on the scoring list with 22, followed by Garfield Heard with 17 and "Stormin' Norman" Van Lier with 15. The double figure scoring was rounded out by Bob Weiss and Clifford Ray who each claimed 12 points. Dennis Awtrey and Jim King both put up 8, with Frank Russell adding 7 and Rowland Garrett 5.

The Sixers also had 6 players in double digits, but it wasn't enough. Fred Carter led the scoring with 23, followed by Kevin Loughery with 18. Freddie Boyd hit for 16, John Block for 15, John Trapp for 13, and Leroy Ellis for 11. Manny Leaks totaled 7 and Dave Sorenson tossed in 6. Dale Schlueter spent the game building arm strength by holding the scoring column up in one hand, and a goose's egg up in the other.





Next Game:
12/9/72 vs the Knicks at the Garden. The Sixers are 0-3 when facing the Knicks this season and have yet to reach 90 points in any of the 3 games.


actual result:
Chicago - 118
Philadelphia - 102


Philadelphia record:
actual (3-26)
replay (4-25)

Game 30

Philadelphia 76ers @ New York Knicks
Madison Square Garden
December 9, 1972

The final score wasn't an exact duplicate of the previous game, but it came within a whisker. What was duplicated was the thrashing that the Sixers absorbed, as the Knickerbockers won easily in the Garden by 26 points, 135-109.

All 8 players for the Knicks reached double digits, with 3 of those notching 20 or more. "Dollar Bill" led the scoring with 27, followed by "Clyde" with 21, and "The Pearl" with 20 to round out the 20 point scorers. Former MLB pitcher Dave DeBusschere threw in 18, while Willis Reed totaled 14. Jerry Lucas with 13, Phil Jackson with 12, and "The Dream" with 10 completed the scoring column for New York.

Philadelphia had 5 in double figures, including 2 with more than 20, but once again fell woefully short of what was needed. Fred Carter topped the Sixers with 27, followed closely by John Block with 25. Kevin Loughery claimed 16, Leroy Ellis 13, and Freddie Boyd 11 to finish out the double figure scoring. John Trapp and Manny Leaks each put up 8, with Dale Schlueter in a familiar spot at the bottom of the scoring list as he totaled 1 point.





Next Game:
12/12/72 @ Baltimore. This will be the first matchup of the season between the Sixers and Bullets.


actual result:
Philadelphia - 109
New York - 120


Philadelphia record:
actual (3-27)
replay (4-26)
