With 6:16 remaining at the TD Garden last night, the winless 76ers led the Celtics 77-66.

Boston closed the game on an 18-3 run as Philly managed to score on just one of its final 14 possessions.  Here they are, via ESPN's box score:

Jae Crowder blocks Robert Covington 's 7-foot jumper
Phil Pressey traveling
Hollis Thompson misses 24-foot three point jumper
T.J. McConnell lost ball turnover (Isaiah Thomas steals)
T.J. McConnell misses 16-foot jumper
Robert Covington lost ball turnover (Jae Crowder steals)
Jahlil Okafor makes 7-foot jumper (and 1)
Robert Covington misses 25-foot three point jumper
Isaiah Canaan misses 28-foot three point jumper
Isaiah Canaan bad pass (Jae Crowder steals)
Robert Covington lost ball turnover (Avery Bradley steals)
Nerlens Noel out of bounds lost ball turnover
Phil Pressey misses 12-foot step back jumpshot
Phil Pressey misses 51-foot three point jumper

One field goal, seven missed shots and six turnovers.  Yikes.  (I know the final Pressey heave shouldn't really count, but it was too funny not to include.)  You can credit the C's defense for making it happen, but you're not going to beat many NBA teams with six minutes of inspired basketball.
