SALT LAKE CITY - The 76ers wanted to end the second third of the season with dignity. They wanted to exit EnergySolutions Arena holding their heads high. That's something they were not able to do while losing by a combined 88 points in their previous game. "This is not who we are," Sixers coach Brett Brown said before Wednesday night's game against the Utah Jazz. "To get whacked by the margin we've been beaten by, it's deflating. " Brown's squad did keep things more competitive.

THE YOUNGEST TEAM in the NBA plays with remarkable predictability almost every night. It turns the ball over more than any other club. For much of any given game, it runs little semblance of an offense; its attack often devolves into a series of imperfect shot decisions. But, more than anything, it plays defense with insufficient effort and commitment. For this, there is no excuse. It can take years for players to develop a repertoire of effective offensive moves; to understand and control their bodies; to appreciate the value of balance and fundamentals and skill-specific roles.

BROOKLYN - The rumors and reports will go on and on and on, probably almost daily until he is shipped elsewhere or the season mercifully comes to an end. Yesterday, a report by The Sporting News said the 76ers were actively shopping Evan Turner, saying the Phoenix Suns had interest in the fourth-year swingman. It is no secret that Sixers general manager Sam Hinkie is looking at and listening to any and all proposed deals when it comes to his team. Whether something happens with Turner or Thaddeus Young or Spencer Hawes won't be a shock, but, for now, nothing seems imminent.

THERE WERE a lot of similarities on the basketball court last night at the Wells Fargo Center. Both 76ers coach Brett Brown and Atlanta Hawks coach Mike Budenholzer are disciples of San Antonio's Gregg Popovich, and each is in his initial season as an NBA coach. The two formed a bond that goes well beyond the basketball court, and for them not to steal some things from what they learned with one of the best organizations in the league would be silly. Both preach moving the basketball with an emphasis on playing at a faster pace, and both demand a disciplined style of defense.

WASHINGTON - The 76ers usually focus on defensive shortcomings in lopsided losses. But poor shooting - particularly from beyond the three-point line - has also hurt them during their two-game losing streak. The Sixers (13-27) made just 2 of 20 three-pointers Friday in a 101-86 setback to the Miami Heat at the Wells Fargo Center. On Saturday, they shot 2 for 19 from long distance in a 103-78 loss to the Chicago Bulls at the United Center. The Sixers haven't exactly been heating it up from long range.

FOR A COACH so meticulous in how he teaches his young players the ways of the NBA, it is kind of surprising how 76ers coach Brett Brown is going about handling two big men who will see their first action with the team very soon. "Ready, fire, aim," are the words Brown chose for Arnett Moultrie, who should make his debut shortly, after having preseason ankle surgery, and newcomer Dewayne Dedmon, who signed a 10-day contract with the club yesterday. Both will give Brown a luxury he hasn't had all season, an abundance of low-post players.

In Dewayne Dedmon, the 76ers believe they have an athletic rim protector. Dedmon hopes that will help him stick around longer than 10 days. The Sixers added the 7-foot, 255-pounder on a 10-day contract Tuesday, making him the first player signed by the franchise since it waived Dan Orton on Jan. 7. A center, Dedmon was called up from the Santa Cruz Warriors of the NBA Development League, in which he averaged 15.2 points, 13.5 rebounds, and...

On a 76ers team that is desperate for size, not to mention additional depth, the return of Arnett Moultrie surely will be welcome. The 6-foot-10, 240-pound forward-center hasn't played since September surgery on his left ankle. But he is back practicing with the team and hopes to return soon. Moultrie was acquired by the Sixers on draft day 2012 after he was taken with the 27th selection of the first round by the Miami Heat. On Monday, he went through a full practice at the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine and proclaimed himself healthy.

THE ROOM FOR ERROR with the 76ers is about as thin as Michael Carter-Williams' frame. When they are playing their best basketball and following the blueprint that has been put together by coach Brett Brown, home wins against teams like Miami and Chicago and Houston are attainable, as are four-game road win streaks. Stray from the plans ever so slightly and it's a domino effect resulting in some pretty bad basketball. It's safe to say that over the past four games, which the team has lost by a total of 69 points, they have gotten off track more than a little bit. There have been variables stacked against them, such as having to play back-to-back games after coming off their West Coast road trip.

Lavoy Allen did not play Friday against the Detroit Pistons at the Wells Fargo Center and will miss Saturday's home game against the New York Knicks with a sore calf. The 76ers reserve forward suffered the injury in Tuesday's 111-93 setback at the Cleveland Cavaliers. "I think in relation to the longevity of it, it might not be as severe as we originally thought, where it is going to keep him out a long time," coach Brett Brown said before the Pistons game. "My history with calves is not a good one. . . . If you go too fast or you rush it back, it could knock out another six weeks.
