Fans start chanting "M-V-P" when 76ers forward Carl Landry goes to the line to shoot his free throws against the Pelicans. (0:15)

The good times continue in Philadelphia.

One night after Villanova won the national championship in the most dramatic of fashions, the Philadelphia 76ers notched their all-important 10th win of the season, a 107-93 triumph over the New Orleans Pelicans.

Why so important? Well, the victory ensured that the Sixers (10-68) won't match the record for NBA futility they set in 1972-73, when they finished 9-73.

But it gets better.

Before the game, the big news was that 37-year-old Elton Brand was making his first start of the season. Brand played only 11 minutes, finishing with two points and four rebounds.

But fellow forward Carl Landry came off the bench to score a game-high 22 points, plus nine rebounds.

Landry is averaging only 9.4 points and 3.9 rebounds per game this season. But that didn't stop some Philadelphia fans from serenading him with an "M-V-P!" chant late in the fourth quarter, which had to make him smile.

Now that's one shining moment.
