This is a question most NBA bettors are probably asking themselves today: How will the Philadelphia 76ers
? Considering they haven't tasted victory since late March of last season, it's a fair inquiry. Out of curiosity we looked back over the last two-plus seasons to see exactly how Philly fared off a victory. From a straight up perspective, they're 10-26. Against the spread, a semi-impressive 17-19. Philly is +8.5 underdog at New York this evening.
"They truly stayed together," said Sixers coach Brett Brown, who improved his career coaching record (all in Philly) to 38-145. "I'm pleased for the city. We didn't want this streak continuing. I'm pleased for our fans. They deserve it. Obviously, this is a relief on many levels, but we're gonna get greedy. We want a little bit more, and that's how we'll approach [Wednesday] night [in New York against the Knicks]."
