Who Are Sixers Beating, Losing To?

The Sixers appear to have hit a little bump in their road, and it may have as much to do with whose been on that road as it does injuries to their big men (Spencer Hawes, Elton Brand).

Consider, the 20 teams they have beaten are currently a combined 251-384 (.395). The 14 teams they have fallen to are a combined 226-163 (.581). They are 6-8 against teams that are currently over .500; 14-5 against foes that are currently under .500.

Here are the current records of the teams the Sixers have beaten, and lost to, so far this season:

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.
