MAGIC-SIXERS PREVIEW

By ESPN.Com
February 23, 2013



A season that began with so much promise for the Philadelphia 76ers has fallen to its lowest point during their latest losing streak.

While Andrew Bynum doesn't appear ready to provide a lift anytime soon, a home date against the free-falling Orlando Magic may help the 76ers get back into the win column.

At 10-6 heading into December and hopeful that Bynum would return soon, the 76ers were feeling optimistic. Bynum, however, has yet to play for Philadelphia because of discomfort in both knees, and while he's practiced with the team recently, the 7-footer is still without a timetable for his return.

In the meantime, the 76ers (22-32) fell to a season-worst 10-games under .500 with a 99-93 loss at New York on Sunday. Philadelphia also dropped four games behind Milwaukee for eighth place in the Eastern Conference.

The Magic will try to snap a 10-game road losing streak -- their longest such skid in seven years -- on Tuesday night when they visit Philadelphia in a meeting between teams with five-game losing streaks.

The Magic (15-41) have lost 28 of their last 31 following a 118-94 defeat to Cleveland on Saturday. They're mired in their longest road slide since dropping a franchise-worst 16 in a row in Jan. 27-March 21, 2006.

"We're trying to play the best that we can and that's what you want to do," coach Jacque Vaughn said. "Each time you step on the floor you do your job."

Sixers coach Doug Collins on Magic: "Their future is bright.

Collins: "They're playing with house money. They're building a team. They've been through this before when they had an expansion team."

Collins: "Orlando is a great place to play." Went on to praise Mr. DeVos, Amway Center, Jacque Vaughn, team's unselfish play.

TrueMagicFan07, Thanks for doing all of these game threads. Really picking up the slack this season.
I wonder how rusty Al Harrington is going to be.

Not a bad 1st.

I think I'm really going to like Udrih as a backup. He may not be much of a defender but I trust him with the ball and passing accuracy.

Harrington played 3 minutes - must be so out of shape lulz.

Harrington is 0-3 with an airball and is running slower than Hedo and BBD combined. Let's just call him our secret tank weapon.

AAAAANNNNDD here comes the 2nd. So far, summed up perfectly by a Harrington air ball. :svgsad:

I like our defense and running. Someone needs to teach Harkless free throws though.

Back-to-back Magic fast breaks? I haven't seen that since the days of Darrell Armstrong!

These young-uns are showing some signs of promise. Tobias Harris may be a bit better than advertised.
"I apologize for this circus I have caused to the fans of our city. They didn't deserve none of this. I'm sorry from the bottom of my heart. I will do whatever I can to make this right and do what I was put in Orlando to do."

"This has been a very hard time," Howard said. "For me, my family and all of us. The fans deserve a better hero and I will make that happen. I love and appreciate my fans and this city."
