Great stuff Jeff. The results look great. How do you handle it if the sixers happen to play more than 10 men in a game? I know the game engine is geared for 10 men max hence the 10 sided dice.

Walter

Walter, during this era teams did not use more than 10 players very often. Whenever the Sixers, or their opponent, use more than 10 players in the real life game I sit the player(s) who scored the fewest points.

I'm working on my next project which will be from this same general era, meaning that there won't be a lot of real life games in which teams used more than 10 players. I'll use 10 or 11 players, depending on the effect that the 11th player has on a team's initial Scoring Rolls total, in comparison to their Target Scoring Rolls number.

For pregame adjustments, as well as scoring rolls, I use Random.org to generate numbers so I'm not limited by a d10.

Thanks for following the replay.

Game 46

Boston Celtics @ Philadelphia 76ers
The Spectrum
January 13, 1973

The most recent game against Boston, an 11 point loss, was clearly an aberration as the final score of this game was more in keeping with the results of the first three. The Celtics visit The Spectrum and wallop the Sixers by 35 points, 136-101.

Boston had 6 players finish with 10+, including one with more than 30, and two others with more than 20. Dave Cowens topped the scoring list with 31 points, followed by John Havlicek with 29 and Jo Jo White with 25. Don Chaney and Paul Silas had 14 each, with future College and NBA coach Paul Westphal totaling 11. Hank Finkel ended the game with 6 points, Steve Kuberski 4, and future NBA coaching legend Don Nelson 2. Art Williams was unable to take the lid off the basket.

The top 3 scorers for the Sixers would have done very well at a blackjack table, but this game was played on the hardwood. Fred Carter, John Block, and Leroy Ellis were tied atop Philly's scoring column with 21 points each. Dave Sorenson was the only other double digit scorer for the Sixers, claiming 10. John Trapp was right behind Sorenson as he put up 9 points, followed by Hal Greer with 8, Dale Schlueter with 7, and Freddie Boyd with 4. After a 1 game hiatus the egg is back and currently in the possession of Manny Leaks.





Next Game:
1/15/73 @ KC-Omaha in Kansas City. The Sixers are 0-3 against the Kings this season.


actual result:
Boston - 111
Philadelphia - 95


Philadelphia record:
actual (4-42)
replay (6-40)

Game 47

Philadelphia 76ers @ Kansas City - Omaha Kings
Municipal Auditorium
January 15, 1973

The Sixers play the role of the court jester, falling to the Kings by 14 points, 116-102, as they get swept in the season series 4 games to none.

Philadelphia had 2 with 20+ and 3 with 10+ but it wasn't enough to overcome the former residents of the Queen City. Fred Carter topped the scoring with 21 points, followed closely by John Trapp with 20 and Leroy Ellis with 19. Manny Leaks netted 16 and Freddie Boyd 10 to round out the double digit scorers. The remaining 16 points belonged to Dale Schlueter who claimed 8, John Block with 6, and Mike Price 2. Dave Sorenson and Hal Greer are co-holders of the egg.

The Kings were paced by "Tiny" Archibald who collected 33 points, leading the team by a wide margin. Soon to be a Sixer Tom Van Arsdale was next with 14, followed by a trio who clearly were not afflicted with triskaidekaphobia, Matt Goukas, Nate Williams, and Ron Riley. Sam Lacey added 11 points, Don Kojis 10, and Mike Ratliff 5, with Dick Gibbs and Johnny Green notching 2 apiece.





Next Game:
1/16/73 @ Milwaukee. The Sixers are 0-2 against the Bucks this season.


actual result:
Philadelphia - 108
KC-Omaha - 135


Philadelphia record:
actual (4-43)

Game 48

Philadelphia 76ers @ Milwaukee Bucks
Milwaukee Arena
January 16, 1973

Laying the groundwork for another sweep, the Sixers fall to 0-3 against the team from America's Dairyland as they lose to the Bucks by 19 points, 133-114.

Philadelphia's scoring was a 2 man show as Fred Carter topped the scorebook with 35 points followed by John Block who had 26. Carter's 35 tied him with Block for the team's season high. Manny Leaks and Leroy Ellis were the only other double digit scorers, adding 14 and 12 respectively. Freddie Boyd was a free throw short of double digits as he totaled 9 points. Hal Greer was a bucket short of joining that group as he claimed 8. John Trapp netted 7, Dale Schlueter 2, and Dave Sorenson 1 to round out the scorers. Mike Price now holds the egg.

Milwaukee had 2 players with more than 30 points, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar with 34 and Bob Dandridge with 33. Curtis Perry added 21 with 3 others notching double figures, Jon McGlocklin 12, Lucius Allen 11, and Russ Lee 10. Mickey Davis claimed 8 points and Terry Driscoll 4 to complete the team's total of 133. Chuck Terry and Dick Cunningham were unable to take the lid off the basket.

Game 49

Atlanta Hawks @ Philadelphia 76ers
The Spectrum
January 17, 1973

The Sixers return home but the outcome doesn't change as they fall to the Hawks for the fourth time in four games this season, losing by 23 points, 125-102.

Atlanta had 9 players take the court and 8 of them ended the game with double digits in what was truly a team effort. "Pistol Pete" topped the scoring column for the Hawks as he totaled 22 points. George Trapp was second with 19 points, more than doubling his brother John's output for the Sixers. Jim Washington netted 18, while "Sweet Lou" and Walt Bellamy added 17 apiece. The double digit scorers were completed by the trio of Bob Christian, Herm Gilliam, and soon to be Sixer Jeff Halliburton who each claimed 10. Steve Bracey was at the bottom of the scoring column with 2 points.

Philadelphia also had 9 players take the court but only 4 wound up with double figures. Additionally, the team effort fell far short of the one exhibited by Atlanta. Fred Carter led the Sixers in scoring with 27 points, followed by John Block who tossed in 18. Manny Leaks with 15 and Mike Price with 10 were the other double figure scorers. Hal Greer and John Trapp just missed making that group total six instead of four as they each had 9 points. Out of the four games against the Hawks this season John has gone head to head with his brother three times, and has been outscored in each game. Family bragging rights definitely go to George. Freddie Boyd and Leroy Ellis each finished with 6 points. Soon to be a Hawk, sort of, Dale Schlueter notched 2. The egg took the day off.





Next Game:
1/19/73 vs Baltimore in Hershey, PA. The Sixers are 0-1 against the Bullets this season, losing 123-98 in Baltimore on December 12.


actual result:
Atlanta - 122
Philadelphia - 105


Philadelphia record:
actual (4-45)
replay (6-43)

I'm thinking that the Pistol knew he could share the wealth this game because as you noted, the Sixers can make anyone look good !

Game 50

Philadelphia 76ers -vs- Baltimore Bullets
Hershey, PA
January 19, 1973

The Sixers travelled to "The Sweetest Place on Earth" to face the Bullets but left with a sour taste in their mouth as they were crushed by 27 points, 141-114.

Philadelphia had a pretty decent effort on the offensive side from eight of the nine who took the court, but it paled in comparison to the effort put forth by the Bullets as they shredded Philly's defense. John Block led the scoring with 23 points, with Fred Carter close behind as he notched 22. Four others also made it to double digits, Leroy Ellis scored 18 and Mike Price 15, with Dave Sorenson and Manny Leaks each claiming 11. Hal Greer netted 9 points with Freddie Boyd adding 5. Dale Schlueter put the egg back to work.

Baltimore had three players miss 30 each by a total of 5 points. "The Big E" scored 29, with Archie Clark and Mike Riordan totaling 28 apiece. Three others ended the game with double figures, Phil Chenier with 18 points, Wes Unseld 16, and Flynn Robinson 12. Dave Stallworth and John Tresvant each had 4 points, while Kevin Porter and Stan Love both finished with 1.





Next Game:
1/21/73 @ Baltimore for the 2nd of 2 in a row against the Bullets. The Sixers are now 0-2 against Gene Shue's team this season.


actual result:
Philadelphia - 94
Baltimore - 110


Philadelphia record:
actual (4-46)
replay (6-44)
