Working OT ... And Losing

The Sixers Wednesday night played the 300th regular season overtime game in franchise history.

If they had somehow managed to pull out a win over New Jersey Deron Williamses, they would have been the only of the cities' four franchises without an all-time losing record in overtimes. As it is, they are only two games under .500 in OT games, by far the best record in the city.

Here are each franchise's all-time regular season and postseason record in contests that extend beyond regulation:

  REGULAR SEASON  
Franchise W L T      Pct.    Postseason
Sixers 149 151 0 .497 11-11
Flyers - OTs 107 125 220 .480 33-35
Flyers - Shootouts    20 37 0 .351
Eagles 12 16 4 .438 1-  0
Phillies (since 1901)   666 731 4 .477 5-  5
