The Sixers must wish they could play the Wizards (2-15) every night. They beat them by 31 points and 13 points on consecutive nights earlier this month, and this game was never competitive.The Orlando Magic: The following comments from yesterday's BAD post tell you absolutely everything you need to know about last night's blowout loss to the Celtics:
The Wizards, who lost Sunday at Boston, played with little passion in the first half. They walked down the court for offensive possessions, never hustled after loose balls and couldn't convert the easiest of buckets, missing eight of nine shots in the paint in the first quarter. Washington coach Flip Saunders took a knee in front of the scorer's table, bowed his head and rubbed his temples after a string of sloppy plays.
The Sixers had 62 points in the first half, topping their previous season high for a half (54) set against, yup, Washington on Jan. 13.
"The Magic, 16 from 65 from the field. Whoa."Also:
"Hahahahahahahahaha the Magic. Sorry. Not only with a franchise-low 56 points and 16 made field goals. they also played with only four players on the court for one posession, before richardson recognized the mess and knocked the ball out of bounds witout checking in. the bawful level of the season has reached a point beyond human understanding."
"The Magic shot 24.6 percent from the field in Monday's 87-56 loss, their lowest shooting percentage in franchise history."Dwight Howard, quote machine: "There's no way KG should be beating me up and down the floor. There was a couple plays where he beat me up and down the floor. There's no way. He's 40 and I'm 25. I just can't allow that to happen. I have to step up and be the leader for this team."
