Game 40

Philadelphia 76ers @ Portland Trail Blazers
Memorial Coliseum
January 5, 1973

The Sixers travel across the country and not only do they not get a chance to try for a cigar at any of the midway games, they can't even get into the carnival as they're waylaid by the Trail Blazers, the other second worst team in the league, by 36 points, 149-113.

Six players in double figures, with a seventh coming close, wasn't nearly enough for Philadelphia. Add in an all too familiar tale at the bottom of the scoring column and the end result was another embarrassing loss. John Block topped the scoring list with 26 points, followed by Fred Carter with 21 and Kevin Loughery with 19. Leroy Ellis put up 14, with Freddie Boyd and Manny Leaks adding 10 each to round out the double figure scorers. Mike Price hit for 8 points, Dale Schlueter for 5, and in an oft told bottom of the scoring column story, Dave Sorenson and Hal Greer both went hunting for, and found, goose eggs.

Portland duplicated Philadelphia with six double digit scorers of their own, and a seventh coming close, but the final numbers were vastly different. Geoff Petrie led the Trail Blazers in scoring as he scorched the lackluster Philly defense for 40 points. Sidney Wicks was second in the scorebook as he netted 29, followed by Lloyd Neal with 25, Charlie Davis 15, Greg Smith 12, and Ollie Johnson 10 to complete the double digit list. Rick Adelman had 9, LaRue Martin 5, Larry Steele 3, and Terry Dischinger 1 to reach the 149 total.





Next Game:
1/6/73 @ Golden State. The Sixers are 0-1 vs the Warriors this season, losing by 3 points on the road in the game of November 16th.


actual result:
Philadelphia - 102
Portland - 135


Philadelphia record:
actual (3-37)
replay (5-35)
