Not long after 76ers president Rod Thorn watched helplessly from the stands as Minnesota's Kevin Love hit a pair of free throws with a tenth of a second remaining to give the Timberwolves a one-point victory and drop the 76ers to their third loss in a row, he could be seen pacing back and forth in front of the team bus, clearly dismayed by the loss. Three days later in Houston, Thorn watched the Rockets' Kevin Martin score 14 points in the fourth quarter of yet another Sixers loss to bring their losing streak to a season-high five heading into this weekend's all-star break.

Amar'e Stoudemire led the Knicks (23-24) with 21 points and nine rebounds. Jeremy Lin added 18 points and three assists for the Knicks.

Pistons 105, Sixers 88 The series: Tied at one game each with the next two to be played in Philadelphia. Turning point: Holding a six-point lead with 5:34 to go in the first half, the Pistons outscored the Sixers, 14-3, to grab a 53-36 lead. The run was fueled by five Sixers turnovers. It was never closer. Did someone say balance? Criticized for leaning too heavily on Rasheed Wallace in the first half of Game 1, the Pistons unleashed the balanced attack that has made them so hard to defend all season, and in playoffs past.

Elton Brand, who averaged 21.5 points to help the 76ers post consecutive wins at Detroit and against visiting New Orleans, appears to be adapting well to his role off the bench. The Sixers forward initially was unhappy with the assignment. Over his last 23 games, the 6-foot-9 Brand has averaged 16.0 points, 7.2 rebounds, and 1.52 blocked shots. In his first 10 games of the season, the veteran came up with only 9.8 points, 5.3 rebounds and 0.6 blocks per game. Brand, who was averaging 14.1 points and 5.4 rebounds going into last night's home game against the New York Knicks, is third on the team in minutes played, behind swingman Andre Iguodala and forward Thaddeus Young.

The 76ers have agreed to terms with forward Rodney Carney, according to a source familiar with the situation. Carney, a 6-foot-6 forward, has agreed to a one-year deal for the fourth-year minimum of $855,189, giving the Sixers 13 players under contract for the 2009-10 season. Carney, who played collegiately at Memphis, played his first two professional seasons with the Sixers, from 2006 to 2008. In July 2008, the Sixers traded Carney, Calvin Booth, and a future first-round pick to the Minnesota Timberwolves as part of a deal that dumped contract money, creating room for the Sixers to sign power forward Elton Brand to his five-year, $82-million deal.

Andre Iguodala was both proud and relieved at being named to the NBA all-star game. A day after his selection, the eighth-year veteran talked about being an all-star following Friday's shootaround at the Wells Fargo Center in preparation for tonight's game against the Los Angeles Clippers. "To be named an all-star and some of the things I've accomplished, it puts everything into perspective how much hard work goes into this and how much of a blessing it is," Iguodala said. When asked if it were finally a relief to be selected, Iguodala responded, "I definitely thought that.
