As expected, the Sixers lost their 10th game in 12 tries Wednesday night. The Sixers are holding on to the 8th playoff spot in the East by a thread and with any luck they will allow the Chicago Bulls to pass them. The 8th seed in the East is a sacrificial lamb. Not only do you have to get your ass kicked by the Pistons, you have to spend a few days in Detroit. If the Sixers could just continue their losing fashion then they could earn a few balls in the NBA draft lottery. Their chances of getting a stud pick still wouldn't be great, but as Lloyd Christmas knows well, sometimes we just want a chance.
