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


Philadelphia record:
actual (2-23)
replay (4-21)

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)

Nice to see this replay back!

Man, is that Sixer defense bad! Defense = Effort. It looks like the boys from Philly have quit!

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 !
