The Sixer loss solidified Philadelphia’s hold on the third worst record in the NBA. The Lakers have the fourth worst record in a race to the bottom for the top pick in the NBA draft.

Coach Byron Scott told the OC Register that losing wasn’t a consideration and that he coaches every game to win. Lin says he was just having a good time.
“I’m just really happy about it,” Lin said. “It was fun to be in that environment tonight and just have that health. I felt pretty explosive and stuff like that. It was fun.”
