The 76ers were humiliated Thursday night in a 123-70 loss to the Dallas Mavericks at American Airlines Center. The 53-point setback was their worst since a 56-point loss to the Seattle SuperSonics in 1993.
The Sixers are winless through eight games for the first time since the dreaded 1972-73 season. That team went 9-73 to set the NBA’s futility record.
