Though they lost game No. 60 last night to the visiting Nets, the Sixers gave Brooklyn some trouble, falling by four, 105-101. Though moral victories don’t matter to fans, this Sixers season wasn’t supposed to be anything but a run-up to the 2014 NBA Draft. Still, the Sixers selected smartly in the 2013 Draft. Their first round pick, Michael Carter-Williams, showed why during his coast-to-coast journey for the jam over Andrei Kirilenko. Read More »
