SIXERS HOPE TO REBOUND AGAINST SUNS TONIGHT AT WELLS

By Sarah Berkowitz

The Sixers host the Phoenix Suns tonight at the Wells, hoping to put their Sunday loss to the Celtics behind them.

The 76ers (6-39) have allowed at least 51 boards in four of their last six and have held a disadvantage on the glass in seven of eight. Seven opposing players have finished with at least 10 rebounds in the 76ers’ last three games.

After opening the season 1-30, Philly is 5-9 and has split its last four. However, the latest in that stretch was a step backward as the 76ers shot just 39.3 percent and committed 24 turnovers in Sunday’s 112-92 loss to Boston.

“That was a bad NBA game tonight from our standpoint,” coach Brett Brown said. “I don’t even know what team I coached tonight.”

The Sixers and Brooklyn Nets are the only teams in the Eastern Conference with single-digit wins at home, and the 76ers are a league-worst 3-17. Phoenix has lost 10 straight on the road to fall to 4-18 away from home.
