Game-by-game comparison with 1972-73 Sixers

The worst NBA team ever?

It's the Philadelphia 76ers of 1972-73, who started 0-15 and then, at the three-quarters pole, stood 4-58 after a 21-game losing streak.

But an amazing thing happened toward the end of the season: The Sixers got hot, winning five of seven from Valentine's Day to the end of February, suddenly improving to 9-60. Alas, another losing skid followed, leaving the Sixers with 13 straight losses and a final mark of 9-73.

All of this goes to show you that you never know what is around the corner for a team during the long, cruel NBA season. Any team, no matter how bad, can get it going -- and then go for weeks without winning.

So check out how those Sixers compare to this Sixers team, game by game, twist by twist, and turn by turn:
