COACH OF THE MONTH in November, out of a job by New Year's. The Brooklyn Nets have elevated expectations this season, and a .500 record wasn't good enough. Coach Avery Johnson was fired Thursday, his team having lost 10 of 13 games after a strong start to its first season in Brooklyn. "We don't have the same fire now that we did when we were 11-4," general manager Billy King said at a news conference in East Rutherford, N.J. "I tried to talk to Avery about it, and we just can't figure it out. The same pattern kept on happening.

LAS VEGAS - This was just a game - a summer-league one at that. So although the 76ers were disappointed with an 87-84 NBA Summer League loss to the Brooklyn Nets, their hearts were with teammate Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot. The native of France was suffering Thursday night at the Thomas & Mack Center. At least 80 people were killed and many more were injured in Luwawu-Cabarrot's home city of Nice on Thursday when a terrorist drove a truck into a crowd celebrating Bastille Day. The Sixers found out about the terror attack before the game.

MERCIFULLY, this sad-sack season for the Sixers has ended. Like most of their games, the Sixers went out with a whimper, and not a bang, as they coughed up a 24-point lead in a 115-105 fall-from-ahead loss at the Chicago Bulls on Wednesday. It's been that kind of a season. "You feel like the season is appropriately coming to an end," said Sixers coach Brett Brown, who probably felt as if it could not have gotten any worse than his first two seasons. "And it's time to move on. " Move on to what?

JOEL EMBIID celebrated his 22nd birthday on Wednesday. While his professional basketball career hasn't exactly progressed the way many had hoped, you can't stop Father Time. What does 22 mean for the 7-2, 265-pounder who has had to undergo two foot surgeries since getting drafted by the 76ers with the third overall pick in June 2014? It is hopeful for Sixers fans that the biggest piece to the rebuilding project is still just an NBA infant. Coach Brett Brown has said in the past that big men don't usually hit their prime until their mid- to-late 20s. In Embiid, like Shayne Gostisbehere of the Flyers, Mikael Franco of the Phillies and Fletcher Cox of the Eagles, fans have someone they can truly pin their hopes to. Perhaps the most fun aspect to watch in the final 15 games for the Sixers will be Embiid's pregame workouts, where he practices baby hooks in the lane with the fluidity of a skilled veteran; shoots mid-range jumpers with the look of a small forward; and steps out to the three-point line and makes shots with remarkable consistency, all with a form that is textbook.

NEW YORK - The 76ers will tell you that they're eager to get back on the court. They say they are determined to show that they're better than the squad that opened the game by missing 14 of 16 shots en route to being humiliated by the Brooklyn Nets. The Sixers say they are raring to show that they are better than the team that let Nets swingman Bojan Bogdanovic look like a first-ballot Hall of Famer. "We can't let Bogdanovic get off for 44 points," Elton Brand said Tuesday after a 131-114 loss to the Nets at the Barclays Center.

NEW YORK - Robert Covington, Jerami Grant and Richaun Holmes must mean more to the 76ers than people think. Either that or the Brooklyn Nets just got tired of losing to the NBA's last-place team. Whatever the reasoning, the Sixers were out of Tuesday night's game at the Barclays Center shortly after it started. The official outcome: Brooklyn 131, Sixers 114. This was the most points scored on the Sixers this season. But before the game, the Nets (19-48) had been the lone team the Sixers (9-58)

FRED CARTER doesn't mind being remembered as a loser. He embraces the idea. Actually, he embraces the idea of being remembered - period. One wouldn't think that by the way Carter played the game, he'd even entertain the possibility of being associated with a loser's legacy. After all, he was nicknamed "Mad Dog" after biting Bullets teammate Ray Scott during a practice. But Carter's logic is that it's always good to be remembered for something. And if it's being remembered as the best player on the worst team in the history of the NBA, so be it. Which is why whenever a team comes close to approaching the 1972-73 Sixers' 9-73 record of ineptness, Carter gets nervous.

A lot of hype surrounding the 76ers' 2016-17 season involves Joel Embiid. That's when the 7-foot-2 center is scheduled to make his debut after being sidelined this season and last season following surgeries to his right foot. But . . . "I think everybody also must understand that . . . it's not like [Embiid] is going to come out and play 40 minutes and play 82 games," Sixers coach Brett Brown said. "That would be naive and not true. "We have to be responsible with some minute restrictions with him. You would assume that he's not going to play back-to-back games.

One night, the shorthanded 76ers can look invincible, holding off the charging Brooklyn Nets. The next night, the Sixers can look like a squad unable to elevate its play when it matters the most, surrendering 73 second-half points to the Detroit Pistons.   At this point, that shouldn't come as a surprise. Just over 24 hours after a thrilling win over the Nets on Friday, the Sixers lost, 125-111, to the Pistons on a night in which the franchise retired the No. 4 jersey of the late Dolph Schayes, a Syracuse Nationals and Sixers legend.

The 76ers aren't going to be the worst team in NBA history. They eliminated any chance of setting a record for the fewest wins in a season, beating the Brooklyn Nets, 95-89, on Friday night at the Wells Fargo Center. Even if the Sixers (9-56) lose their final 17 games, they can do no worse than tie the league mark for the worst record (9-73) set by the 1972-73 Sixers. "This feels amazing. I ain't going to lie," Nerlens Noel said of snapping a 13-game losing streak. "It feels good to win. That's what we were working toward, being able to get this was good for us. " However, the matchup wasn't an all-out joyous occasion for the winners.

MIAMI - The 76ers suffered their 11th straight loss Friday. Though it came without Twin Towers Nerlens Noel and Jahlil Okafor, it's probably time to get concerned as the team closes out the season. That's because there's a legitimate chance the Sixers (8-54) won't win three more games this season. On the surface that sounds insane, considering 20 games are left on the schedule. One would think it would be easy to stumble upon four wins during that season-ending stretch, no matter how bad the team is. Teams bound for the postseason have been known to rest players to reenergize for the playoffs.
