The San Antonio Spurs beat the Philadelphia 76ers by 51 points, a 119-68 win for the Spurs. The crazy part is that Tim Duncan, Manu Ginobili and Kawhi Leonard didn't even play.
The 76ers lost by 53 points to the Dallas Mavericks in 2014 so they are accustomed to being down by 50. The team has a long way to go before they are good but still, losing by this much when the other team isn't playing three of its top five players is embarrassing.
Gregg Popovich felt bad for the Philly coach. "What's tough is, I know (Brett Brown's) a hell of a coach," Popovich said. "But it's not a fair battle. Talent for talent, it's ridiculous."
Yes, the 76ers are bad but the franchise doesn't seem to bothered by it. They are playing for the future after all. A few good picks here and there should make them better but picks don't always turn out how you want. Can this team turn it around in the next five years?
Let's hope so because the fans of the team deserve a product they canget behind and that hasn't been the case for a while.
