Game 31

Philadelphia 76ers @ Baltimore Bullets
Baltimore Civic Center
December 12, 1972

The Sixers travel to Maryland and are handed their 3rd straight defeat by 20+ as they lose to the Bullets by 25 points, 123-98.

Philadelphia had 5 players score in double figures but as has become the norm this season the team effort wasn't enough to overcome the opposition. Fred Carter led the scoring with 27 points, followed by Kevin Loughery with 17, Freddie Boyd with 16, Leroy Ellis with 11, and Manny Leaks with 10 to round out the top half of the scoring column. The bottom half showed Dave Sorenson totaling 8 points, John Block 6, John Trapp 2, and, in familiar territory, Dale Schlueter notching just 1 and Hal Greer collecting another goose egg.

Baltimore was paced by Phil Chenier who hit for 28 points. Flynn Robinson was a close second as he almost quadrupled his 6.9 PPG real life average by putting up 26. The "Big E" Elvin Hayes was next with 17, followed in order by, Mike Riordan with 14, John Tresvant 9, Tom Patterson and Wes Unseld who both tossed in 7, Stan Love with 6, Kevin Porter 5, and Dave Stallworth who claimed 4.





Next Game:
12/13/72 vs Los Angeles at The Spectrum. The Sixers are 0-1 against the Lakers this season, losing 111-101 on November 19 in Tinseltown.


actual result:
Philadelphia - 102
Baltimore - 123


Philadelphia record:
actual (3-28)
replay (4-27)

Game 32

Los Angeles Lakers @ Philadelphia 76ers
The Spectrum
December 13, 1972

Philadelphia is on a roll, but it's not the good kind. For the fourth game in a row the Sixers lose by 20+ as the Lakers clobber them at The Spectrum by 28 points, 132-104.

The Lakers exhibited the kind of balanced scoring attack that Sixers fans can only dream about. Los Angeles had 8 players in double figures, led by Jim McMillian who hit for 31. The Logo, Jerry West, was second in scoring with 16, followed by Bill Bridges and Wilt Chamberlain who each added 14, Gail Goodrich with 13, Pat Riley and Travis Grant who both put up 11, and former Sixer Mel Counts with 10 to finish out the double digit scorers. Keith Erickson collected 8 and Jim Price 4 to complete the scoring.

The Sixers had 5 in double figures, with a couple of near misses, but the horsepower just wasn't there. John Block topped Philadelphia as he tossed in 22, with Fred Carter next as he claimed 18. Leroy Ellis with 17, John Trapp with 14, and Freddie Boyd with 10 were the other double digit scorers. Dave Sorenson with 9 and Manny Leaks with 8 both just missed the 10 point mark. The last two in the scoring column were Hal Greer who totaled 4 and Kevin Loughery who added 2. Dale Schlueter grabbed yet another goose's egg and now has one-third of a dozen for the season.





Next Game:
12/16/72 vs Buffalo at The Spectrum. The Sixers have 1 win against the Braves this season in 4 games.


actual result:
Los Angeles - 128
Philadelphia - 90


Philadelphia record:
actual (3-29)
replay (4-28)

They woulda, coulda, shoulda had a shot against the Braves, but, being the Sixers, they wound up shooting themselves in every single foot on the team. Very Happy


Game 33

Buffalo Braves @ Philadelphia 76ers
The Spectrum
December 16, 1972

The Sixers broke their 20 point losing streak, sort of. The Buffalo Braves, holders of the second worst record in the '72-73 NBA season at 21-61 along with the Portland Trail Blazers, visited The Spectrum and absolutely waxed the Sixers, winning by 32 points, 119-87. Even when you're the worst team in the league, losing, at home, to the second worst team is bad enough. Losing by 32 makes it even more difficult to accept. But the extra salt in the wound is only managing to score 87 points.

Buffalo had 5 players in double digits, with 2 others a free throw away. Bob Kauffman and Bob McAdoo led the Braves in scoring and were just a bucket away from 30 as they each netted 28. Elmore Smith with 17, Dave Wohl with 14, and Howard Komives with 10 were the other double digit scorers. Dick Garrett and Randy Smith each had 9 points, with John Hummer putting up 4 to complete the scoring. Bill Hewitt somehow finished the game with 0 points.

Philadelphia used 10 players in the game, with all 10 getting into the scoring column, but their efforts were woefully short of what was needed. John Block topped the Sixers in scoring with 15 points. If your leading scorer for the game in the NBA of the early 70's only had 15 points, you were most likely in for a very long night. There were 3 other Sixers who hit for 10 or more, Fred Carter with 13, as well as Freddie Boyd and Hal Greer who both finished on the number. Kevin Loughery and Manny Leaks each put up 9, followed by John Trapp with 7, Dale Schlueter and Dave Sorenson who both had 6, and Leroy Ellis at the bottom of the scoring list with 2.





Next Game:
12/20/72 at Detroit. This will be the first meeting of the season between the Sixers and Pistons.


actual result:
Buffalo - 126
Philadelphia - 103


Philadelphia record:
actual (3-30)
replay (4-29)

Game 34

Philadelphia 76ers @ Detroit Pistons
Cobo Arena
December 20, 1972

It wasn't a loss by 30, or 20, but it was still a loss. The Sixers hit the road and pulled into the Motor City where they lost by 13 to the team that used to call Ft. Wayne, Indiana home, 117-104.

Philadelphia had 6 players in double figures, including 2 with 20 or more, but, like a broken record whose lyrics repeat throughout the season, the effort just wasn't enough. Fred Carter was at the top of the scoring column as he netted 21, with Kevin Loughery close behind as he tossed in 20. The double digit scoring was rounded out by Freddie Boyd and Leroy Ellis who each totaled 13, Manny Leaks who claimed 11, and John Trapp with 10. Mike Price had 8, Dave Sorenson 6, and Dale Schlueter 2 to complete the scoring.

The Pistons also had 6 players reach double digits, with 3 of those collecting 20 or more. Curtis Rowe and Dave Bing led the scoring as they each hit for 24, with Bob Lanier a couple of buckets behind as he claimed 20. Don Adams with 15, Willie Norwood 11, Stu Lantz 10, John Mengelt 8, Chris Ford 4, and Jim Davis with 1 finished out the 117 total. Bob Nash failed to break into the scoring column, ending the game with 0 points.





Next Game:
12/22/72 @ Houston. The Sixers are 0-2 vs the Rockets this season.


actual result:
Philadelphia - 113
Detroit - 141


Philadelphia record:
actual (3-31)
replay (4-30)

Game 35

Philadelphia 76ers @ Houston Rockets
Hofheinz Pavilion
December 22, 1972

Make that 1-2. The Sixers surprise the Rockets in the Magnolia City, leaving town with a 15 point victory, 111-96.

It's amazing what can happen when everyone who takes the floor makes a worthwhile contribution. All 10 players for the Sixers made it into the scoring column, 6 of those notching double digits. Fred Carter led the scoring with 23 points, followed by a trio who each hit for 14, John Trapp, Kevin Loughery, and Leroy Ellis. Freddie Boyd with 12 and Mike Price with 10 completed the 6. Dave Sorenson and Manny Leaks were a bucket short of double digits as they each put up 8 points. The bottom of the scoring column saw some familiar names but the numbers were different as Dale Schlueter totaled 5 points and Hal Greer claimed 3.

Houston also had 6 players in double figures, but they were hurt by a lack of production from their leading scorer. Jack Marin shows 18 in the scorebook, with Mike Newlin going for 16, Calvin Murphy 15, Don Smith 14, and Jimmy Walker 12. Real life leading scorer Rudy Tomjanovich was well short of his 19.3 PPG as he could only net 11 points. Cliff Meely hit for 6, Stan McKenzie 3, and Otto Moore 1 to round out the scoring for the Rockets.





Next Game:
12/23/72 @ Atlanta, the first of 2 straight against the Hawks. The Sixers are 0-1 vs the team from Georgia this season.


actual result:
Philadelphia - 103
Houston - 116


Philadelphia record:
actual (3-32)
replay (5-30)
