After a day off to savor their biggest come-from-behind victory of the season, the 76ers must start doing some unexpected things.
Such as beating teams that no one expects them to beat.
"Tomorrow is the midpoint of the season," Sixers coach Doug Collins said on Sunday. "This first half has blown by and if we are going to be a playoff team we've got to string some wins together.
The Sixers (17-23) have not won two games in a row since they strung together three straight wins in late November. After rallying from 19 points down to defeat the Toronto Raptors in overtime on Friday, the Sixers will need to beat the powerful San Antonio Spurs (32-11) on Monday night to build much-needed momentum.
