The 76ers missed five shots in a row at the basket against the Knicks

Thursday January 22nd, 2015

The New York Knicks took on the Philadelphia 76ers on Wednesday night, in a match up of two of the worst teams in the NBA this season.

The teams' on-the-court blunders, however, have provided comic relief from their consistently poor play. In this outing, we have the Sixers to thank.

Scoring in Wednesday's game proved especially challenging for Philadelphia, even when players were close to the rim. Take this sequence for example:

It all starts when center Henry Sims missed an opportunity for an easy bucket, a mistake quickly repeated by rookie K.J. McDaniels. None of the other 76ers who got their hands on the ball managed to put it in the basket, either.

With the 98-91 loss to the Knicks, the Sixers dropped to 8-34 on the season. - Jack Jorgensen
