Morning Rewind, 12/2: Break up the 76ers

For Three: Kobe's Philadelphia Farewell
For Three: Kobe's Philadelphia Farewell

Sure. the Philadelphia 76ers' first win came against the only team that it would actually behoove them to lose to. But who cares? Philly is off the schneid. After tying the worst start in NBA history at 0-18, a win against Kobe Bryant's Los Angeles Lakers has them at 1-18.

The reason it could be a questionable long-term move: The Sixers are in line to receive LA's first round draft pick next June -- but only if it falls outside the top three selections. But, hey. Right now, a win is all Philly can focus on.

In Bryant's final game in his hometown, the 37-year-old put up a performance that's become all too common this season: 20 points on 26 shots, including 4-of-17 shooting from three-point range.

To be fair, Bryant had a good shooting start, and finished with a pretty move, taking Nik Stauskas off the dribble.


Six Philadelphia players scored in double-figures, led by Robert Convington's 23 points -- which included five threes made. The team shot 47 percent from the floor and 44 percent from beyond the arc, earning its first victory of the season.

Trust the process, Philly.

76ers 103, Lakers 91
