In the week that was, the Philadelphia 76ers experienced some highs and some lows. The week started on Easter Sunday, when the Sixers were blown out by the Celtics. After four consecutive losses, Doug Collins decided to shuffle his starting lineup, which paid immediate dividends in wins over the Nets and Raptors. Then again, it was the Nets and Raptors.
All appeared to be well again with the Sixers, as they were beating up on bad teams, much like they did during their early season run. Then Friday happened, and they lost a home game to the lowly New Jersey Nets.
The once promising young Sixers are 11-19 in their past 30 games and have serious problems. They've allegedly tuned out Doug Collins, they can't beat good teams or win close games, and now they're losing to bad teams. But because of their hot start, they'll still likely make the NBA Playoffs, where they're going to be massacred by either the Bulls or Heat.
