If you're a Sixers' fan, like I am, tonight's game was a win-win (so to speak).
The second of the team's two first-round picks in 2013, Michael Carter-Williams, posted his second career triple-double and the team lost its 17th consecutive game.
Of course, I'd prefer for the Sixers to be the best team in the league, but as opposed the long period of mediocrity, I'd prefer for them to be awful and load up on the ping-pong balls for the lottery.
[As bad as the Sixers have been, the Bucks are still ranked lower in our consensus NBA power rankings.]
MCW finished tonight's loss to the Knicks with 23 points, a career-high 13 rebounds and 10 assists and added a pair of steals as well.
On the season, the rookie point guard from Syracuse is averaging 16.86 points, 5.55 rebounds, 6.33 assists and 2.04 steals per game.
