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)

Perhaps it was the fact that the team was staying an extra night in warm central Florida. Maybe they wanted to get to the hotel to watch the Oscars. Whatever the case, the 76ers showed an amount of energy last night against the Orlando Magic that hasn't been around in quite some time. But it wasn't enough, and thoughts of erasing a long losing streak flew away like one of the 19 turnovers the team committed on the evening as they dropped a 92-81 decision to the Orlando Magic at the Amway Center.

The 76ers might not win another game this season. Their trade-deadline overhaul, combined with a challenging schedule, makes it hard to find games they would be favored to win. Thirteen of their remaining 24 games are against teams that would be in the playoffs if the season had concluded Wednesday. Five other games come against teams - the Memphis Grizzlies (twice), New York Knicks (twice), and Detroit Pistons - that could still make a playoff push. On paper, the Sixers' best opportunities are against the Orlando Magic and the Boston Celtics.

The winter of the 76ers' discontent has perhaps hit its lowest point. They dropped their 12th consecutive game Wednesday night with a 101-90 loss to the struggling Orlando Magic at the Wells Fargo Center. The Sixers also went winless (0-11) in the month of February. The last time they went winless in a month was in March 1973 (0-13). "We're good, and life moves on," said coach Brett Brown, whose Sixers lost 22 of their last 25 games. "The locker room is good. We win together, and we lose together.

DANNY GRANGER, we hardly knew you. In a move that surprised no one, the 76ers announced yesterday that they had bought out the remaining contract of Granger, acquired from the Indiana Pacers at last Thursday's trade deadline. Granger and Indiana's second-round pick in 2015, via Golden State, came here in exchange for Evan Turner and Lavoy Allen. Hampered by knee injuries and with an expiring contract after this season, Granger appears to have strongly suggested to the Sixers that not playing here was in his best interest.

Injured 76ers point guard Michael Carter-Williams said Monday night that he's not sure exactly when he'll return the court. The rookie missed his third straight game because of soreness and a skin infection on the front of his right knee. Carter-Williams spent Thursday, Friday and Saturday nights at University of Pennsylvania hospital because of the ailment. Carter-Williams said he would play "when everyone says it will be OK for me to come back. " The 22-year-old rookie is on antibiotics and is waiting for the soreness to go away before he takes the court.

THE NBA SEASON is just about a quarter gone and the information it has provided about the 76ers is still very much a mystery. Nerlens Noel still hasn't hit the floor - and probably won't until next season - and though he has been impressive so far, the future of Michael Carter-Williams is still unknown. The three vets on the team - Thaddeus Young, Evan Turner and Spencer Hawes - could all be gone before next season. The NBA careers of Tony Wroten, James Anderson, Hollis Thompson and much of the rest of the roster are very much uncertain.

The 76ers and the Orlando Magic have been squaring off since the latter joined the league in 1989. For the most part, those contests have ended with an Orlando victory. Tuesday night was different. The Sixers defeated the Magic, 126-125, in double overtime at the Wells Fargo Center. Rookie point guard Michael Carter-Williams had a lot to do with the rare victory for the Sixers (7-12). The 6-foot-6, 185-pounder, who was playing with a sore right knee, finished with 27 points, 12 rebounds and 10 assists to post his first career triple-double on the night he was named the Eastern Conference rookie of the month.

IT CERTAINLY hasn't turned into an epidemic yet, but it is a growing concern for Brett Brown and his coaching staff. Entering last night's game against the Orlando Magic, the 76ers were shooting just 70.2 percent from the free-throw line, third worst in the league. They were barely ahead of the Charlotte Bobcats (70 percent) and slightly ahead of Detroit (66.1). The Pistons have one of the all-time worst foul shooters in Andre Drummond, who had made just 17 of 53 (32.1 percent). So what to do?

Reality has set in for the 76ers since their 3-0 start, but coach Brett Brown says he won't try to change the team's style, only its execution. The Sixers will take a 6-12 record into Tuesday's game against the Orlando Magic at the Wells Fargo Center. Brown's team has lost four consecutive games and 10 of the last 12, including a 115-100 loss Sunday at Detroit. The biggest need for improvement is on defense. The Sixers entered Monday ranked ninth in the NBA in scoring, averaging 103 points per game.

WASHINGTON - It didn't seem like so long ago that Jameer Nelson was entering the NBA, fresh off a Saint Joseph's career that will live on forever through his records and the team's accomplishments. It was 10 seasons ago when Nelson was starting that final year on Hawk Hill. It was so long ago that he is now starting to reflect on everything that happened during that time when even fantasies seemed to come true. Seated in the lobby of the Georgetown Four Seasons yesterday afternoon, Nelson, who just recently started his 500th game for the Orlando Magic, chatted about how his NBA life has come full circle.
