If you’ve been holding out hope for a miraculous playoff bid, you can let go now. It’s over.
A defensive collapse in the first quarter let Philly run up a quick lead that they didn’t relinquish. If you blinked in the final two minutes of the first, the Pistons went from down by one point to down eight just that fast.
And things didn’t get much better as the 76ers ran their lead up to as much as 19.
It was a rough night for Reggie Jackson, as he shot 1-11 from the field. He also had seven assists and shot went 6-6 from the free throw line, but still, it wasn’t his night.
Stan Van Gundy gave Ish Smith the reins for the comeback bid, and he was brilliant in the fourth quarter. He had 12 points and 6 assists in the period. It was enough to make the final score look respectable, but not enough to make the results ever in doubt.
