BOSTON – The 76ers found a way
to end their three-game losing streak, and it wasn’t at the free-throw line.
Evan Turner drove the lane and
hoisted a six-footer in traffic for the game-winning bucket as time expired,
helping the Sixers beat the Boston Celtics, 95-94, Wednesday night at TD
The Sixers were woeful at the
foul line, shooting 14-for-25 overall and 4-for-10 in the fourth quarter.
In the end, the Sixers (15-31)
held off the Celtics (15-33) to win for only the third time in 13 games. But,
Turner wondered, at what expense?
“We’ve got to finish those
free throws and make it easy on us,” Turner said. “When Coach (Brett) Brown
took the job, he was a sandy blond. Now he’s a gray-haired man. We can’t be
ruining his time.”
The Sixers will not practice
Thursday, before hosting Atlanta Friday.
