The coach threatened lineup changes, then blamed himself for the team's sorry effort. The star guard went on a postgame rant that was more impressive than his shooting percentage, and the team continued to be plagued by slow starts and even worse finishes. This was anything but a welcome-home party for the 76ers, who returned to the Wachovia Center last night after a 1-4 road trip. The Sixers lost, 88-76, to the Milwaukee Bucks in a game that wasn't as close as the final score indicated.

It may not be a homecoming of sorts, but John Calipari feels at home whenever he ventures to the Philadelphia area, a place he briefly called home. The University of Memphis men's basketball coach will bring his team to the Wachovia Center tonight to face Villanova (8-3). It will be his first time back coaching in the area since Memphis played at Temple during the 2001-2002 season. The Tigers beat Temple, 64-54. Calipari served as an assistant on the 76ers staff for most of the 1999-2000 season.

If all goes according to plan, Allen Iverson will return to the lineup tomorrow night when the 76ers are back at the Wachovia Center for their first home game in two weeks. But with Iverson having missed the last 10 games because of a bruised right knee, his teammates say that it's unreasonable to expect too much from him right away. "We can't just say, 'Allen's back. Now let's lay back and let him do everything,' " point guard Eric Snow said yesterday, after the Sixers broke a four-game losing streak with an 83-77 victory over the San Antonio Spurs.

The clock approached midnight at the Toyota Center, the last minutes of 2003 ticked away, and Randy Ayers was angry. It would not be a happy new year, at least not the start of it, for the coach of the 76ers. The Sixers had just dropped to 0-4 on their dismal road trip with an 80-72 loss Wednesday night to the Houston Rockets, and Ayers didn't hide his disgust with his defense, which he said lacked toughness, togetherness and consistency. "We didn't show any toughness at all," he said after the game.

The 76ers could very well lose all five games on their post-Christmas road trip. But they can't afford to lose another player. Coming off their third consecutive defeat on the trip, a 106-97 pasting at Utah, the Sixers will meet the Houston Rockets at 10 Philadelphia time tonight at the Toyota Center, meaning the game won't end until after the big ball drops in Times Square. The Sixers have lost five of their last six games and four in a row on the road. They want desperately to get wins on their final two stops - tonight and Saturday afternoon in San Antonio.

The bad habits the 76ers have developed on their road trip thus far are getting painful for coach Randy Ayers to watch. The Sixers followed the same pattern last night against the Phoenix Suns as they had two nights before against the Los Angeles Clippers: Trailing at halftime, turnovers sabotaging their chance to come back in the third quarter, big offensive rebounds by the opponent hurting them in the fourth. The result was a 100-92 loss to the Suns at America West Arena, the Sixers' sixth loss in their last eight games and third straight on the road.

Every NBA team knows that on the road, you have to do the little things right, especially when you don't have your best player. That's why 76ers coach Randy Ayers stood on the practice court yesterday at America West Arena and addressed the two primary reasons the Sixers had been unable to steal a game against the Los Angeles Clippers on the first stop of a five-game road trip Friday night. The Sixers shot 10 for 13 from the field in the third quarter, but they committed nine turnovers in the period - three of them shot-clock violations - and trimmed only one point off a four-point halftime deficit.

The 76ers began their five-game road trip last night by trying to engage the Los Angeles Clippers in what passes for a shoot-out in the NBA these days. But the Sixers knew they needed to limit the Clippers' output to succeed, and they didn't do that. They couldn't come up with enough stops in the fourth quarter and, despite a gallant stretch run, lost a 101-98 decision to the Clippers before a crowd of 17,743 at the Staples Center. The Sixers played for the sixth consecutive game without Allen Iverson, their leading scorer, who remained in Philadelphia receiving treatment for a bruised right knee.

The 76ers are learning the harsh realities of life on the basketball court when Allen Iverson isn't whirling and twirling and driving and bombing away for his usual 28 points a night. Without Iverson, who is sitting out with a bruised right knee, the Sixers know they have to control the tempo, rebound well, and get scoring from their No. 1 option, Glenn Robinson, and his supporting cast. But the Sixers didn't do well in any of those areas last night in a fourth-quarter stretch that saw them blow an 11-point lead and fall to the Boston Celtics, 87-84, at the FleetCenter.

His team just lost three of four games during what had looked like a promising homestand, but Randy Ayers keeps plugging on. Yesterday morning, Ayers had to perform one of the most difficult duties he has faced in his first year as an NBA head coach - he had to watch the tape of the 76ers' 88-81 loss to the visiting Cleveland Cavaliers on Friday. Besides the fact that the Cavs had entered the game with 34 consecutive road losses, they had just six victories this season. With an 82-game schedule, it could have been tempting to just throw away the tape of Friday's game and proceed to the next game.
