Evan Turner Wednesday became the first Sixers to have at least 9 assists and 6 rebounds in a game without scoring a field goal since at least 1985-86 (which is as far back as basketball-reference.com will let us search).

Over those 28 seasons, Villanova's Kyle Lowry has the most assists in a game (18) without a field goal, which he did last New Year's Eve.

Here are the six 76ers with nine or more assists and no field goals in a game since 1985-86:

 Player  Date  Opponent  Min.  2FG  3FG  FT  Reb.  Ast.  Pts.
 Scott Brooks  Nov. 30, 1988  Trail Blazers  28  0-4  0-2  1-2  2  10  1
 B.J. Tyler  Nov. 12, 1994  Magic  19  0-2  0-1  0-2  1  10  0
 Scott Skiles  Dec. 23, 1995  Nets  26  0-2  0-3  0-0  1  9  0
 Eric Snow  Dec. 1, 2000  Hornets  36  0-5  0-0  2-2  4  9  2

About this blog

Boop – who goes by Bob Vetrone Jr. when he is undercover or paying bills – has been at the Daily News since 1982, after working for five years at the Philadelphia Bulletin up to its closing. Along with helping to build the sports scoreboards most nights, he has had great input into the papers’ special sports pullouts – March Madness, Broad Street Run, Record Breakers, Greatest Moments – as well as its day-to-day, award-winning event coverage.

A 1980 graduate of North Catholic, he took some evening college courses. Those lasted right up until the first conflict with a Big 5 doubleheader.

His favorite books growing up were the NBA Guide and the Baseball Encyclopedia, which was, for all intents and purposes, the Internet before there was an Internet.

He has been immersed in sports statistics since the early 70s, when his father (long-time sports writer, broadcaster and the Daily News’ Buck The Bartender), would take him into the Bulletin newsroom overnight in the summer and let him update the Phillies statistics in a little, black spiral notebook. But things have changed tremendously in the decades since … He now uses a big, black spiral notebook.
