Bad teams find ways to lose; good teams find ways to win. And after the 76ers put up some wretched numbers in a 74-69 win over the Orlando Magic in front of 16,299 at Wells Fargo Center, it is starting to become clear that the Sixers are, indeed, good. Their point total was the lowest they've posted all season, yet they won. They made just 30 of 80 shots (37.5 percent), yet they have 15 wins in 21 games. And they were outscored, 27-16, in the fourth quarter - giving up 18 points in the final three minutes - yet they were able to win their third game in a row after losing two of three before that.

ORLANDO SEEMS to be Rumor Central these days with names like Shaquille O'Neal and Jerry Sloan being tossed out there. O'Neal will meet with the Magic next week to discuss the general manager opening, multiple sources told ESPN. In his first season as an analyst for TNT, O'Neal spent the first four seasons of his career as the Magic's center starting with the 1992-93 season. He led the league in scoring with 29.3 points per game with Orlando in 1994-95. Sloan, meanwhile, has expressed interest in the open Charlotte Bobcats and Magic coaching positions.

Orlando Magic guard Nick Anderson called a press conference last night to refute allegations by an Orlando woman that he raped her last February. "I say to you and to all the fans of the Orlando Magic that this allegation is false and untrue," Anderson said, tears streaming from his eyes and his voice choking. A woman, who wasn't identified, filed a complaint against Anderson with the Orlando Police Department on Oct. 8. The woman said Anderson raped her Feb. 26, Orlando Police spokesman Sgt. Bill Molloy said.

The move expected for nearly a year finally happened. The Orlando Magic signed free-agent forward Horace Grant last night. No terms were disclosed. The seven-year veteran was a key member of the Chicago Bulls during their run as three-time NBA champions, but had publicly expressed his desire to join the Magic since last season. "It's going to be a great season for us. We're not going to get knocked out in the first round if I have anything to say about it," Grant said at a news conference.

Orlando Magic forward Dennis Scott said Saturday that he's frustrated over what he perceives as low pay and might sit out the final year of his contract, according to a broadcast report. Scott has one year left on his contract with the Magic, which will pay him about $3 million. Scott told WCPX-TV in Orlando on Saturday that he's tired of being paid less than players he thinks don't measure up to him. Scott declined to talk about an incident Friday at Sterling, Va., during what was to have been camp for youngsters.

Jerome Kersey scored 22 points last night to help propel the Portland Trail Blazers to a 121-95 victory over the Orlando Magic. Kersey and Clyde Drexler combined for 17 points in a third period that saw the Blazers outscore the Magic by 34-19 to open an 89-70 lead in front of a crowd of 14,088 - the first non-sellout in eight home games for Orlando, which joined the NBA this season. The Magic trailed by only 65-58 with 8 minutes, 24 seconds left in the third quarter, but Kevin Duckworth, Terry Porter and Kersey then sparked a 15-6 burst by the Blazers.

The only assist Anfernee Hardaway gave the Orlando Magic was 36 points. The All-Star point guard upstaged Michael Jordan last night, abandoning his usual role of keeping his teammates involved in the offense. Hardaway hit 12 of 18 shots in a 94-88 victory over the visiting Chicago Bulls. Hardaway scored 32 or more for the third time in four games, but had no assists. "You figured the Bulls would be coming in here, looking for a little redemption from last year's playoffs, and get a victory since we were without (the injured Shaquille O'Neal)

The 76ers did a horrible thing Wednesday night - they defeated the Detroit Pistons. Why horrible? Because the Sixers are supposed to have tanking fever. Yet, they have a dilemma. General manager Sam Hinkie purposely constructed a bad team with the hope of securing one of the top picks in June's NBA draft. However, his players have refused to adopt a losing mentality, and the Sixers have won three of their past six games. Now their schedule really isn't conductive to losing.

ORLANDO - Isaiah Canaan displayed the long-range shooting touch the 76ers coveted. But unfortunately for the Sixers, Nik Vucevic was, once again, a thorn in his former team's side. The 7-foot center had game highs of 31 points, 14 rebounds and a game-sealing block Sunday night in the Orlando Magic's 103-98 victory at the Amway Center. His 34th double-double of the season helped the Magic (19-39) extend their winning streak to a season-best three games. The Sixers (12-43) have lost three straight.

ORLANDO - Nobody figured last night would be easy for the 76ers, trying to break in a neophyte point guard after one practice. Nor did it get any easier upon learning Luc Mbah a Moute was in a race to get to Florida in time for tipoff. Mbah a Moute never made it. And Isaiah Canaan struggled at times with both his fitness and his playmaking. Despite those issues, the Sixers found enough firepower to come back from a 12-point deficit and push the surging Orlando Magic to the final minute.

MIAMI - Remember how the 76ers were a national joke after losing to the Dallas Mavericks by 53 points on November 13? Well, no one is laughing now. Especially not the Orlando Magic or the Miami Heat, the squads the Sixers (4-23) recently defeated to post their first back-to-back wins of the season. They held the Magic to 88 points on Sunday at the Amway Center before limiting the Heat to 87 points Tuesday. The Sixers squad that once looked allergic to defense has been locking down foes.

ORLANDO - Brett Brown said the fact that all three of the 76ers' wins have come on the road is coincidence. He might have a point. All three of those victories came against struggling teams. They are teams - the Orlando Magic (10-20), Detroit Pistons (5-23) and Minnesota Timberwolves (5-21) - with a combined 20-64 record. Yet the Sixers (3-23) did possess an unrelenting vibe in those games that has been missing in their 14 home losses. "I'm not sure what it is," Michael Carter-Williams said.

DALLAS - Now, along with coach Brett Brown, general manager Sam Hinkie and owner Josh Harris, Michael Carter-Williams can count baseball legend Derek Jeter as a boss. Carter-Williams was named a contributing editor for "The Players' Tribune," the new, multimedia digital company founded and published by Jeter. In his first contribution, titled "Don't Talk to Me About Tanking," MCW lets it be known that the media spin on the team's 26-game losing streak last season was "missing a lot of context," and that "the media spin was that we were tanking the season so we could get the number one draft pick.

DALLAS - Jameer Nelson's numbers are the worst of his career. The former Chester High and St. Joseph's standout signed with the Dallas Mavericks in the offseason after a decade with the Orlando Magic. The point guard averaged 12.6 points and 5.4 assists over his career in Orlando. He finished with just two points in Thursday's 123-70 victory over the Sixers.   For the season, he's averaging a career-low 6.8 points and 3.6 assists.

Thursday was a good day for coach Brett Brown and the 76ers. Everything is relative, of course, but for the Sixers, who take their bright spots where they find them, this qualified as good. Point guard Michael Carter-Williams, almost fully recovered from offseason shoulder surgery, scrimmaged with the team for the first time on Thursday. He probably won't be cleared to play until next week in Dallas, and there are two games to endure in the interim, but at least he was out there offering some hope in the darkness.

MORAL VICTORIES are something the 76ers can't overlook, especially when actual game ones will be so scarce. So a monster block, a one-handed throwdown over a shoving defender or a perfectly executed play to end a quarter are the rewards this young Sixers team comes away with most nights. Last night, the ultimate prize was seconds away. It was a missed rebound away. It was a better foul-shooting night away. It was still unattainable. Thoughts of coming to practice today for the first time this season, after five games, with winning grins on their faces, vanished in the form of a Tobias Harris jumper at the buzzer that gave the previously winless Orlando Magic a 91-89 win. "That was a close game and we fought all the way through," said Brandon Davies, who scored 20 for the Sixers.
