The Sixers may just have eight games left in the 2005-06 season if they don't get their act together. They enter tonight's home game against Boston a half-game out of the eighth and final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference, having lost 12 of their last 16 games.
"I just think our performance hasn't been what we needed," said 76ers guard Willie Green, who was out for most of the season rehabbing from surgery on his left knee. Green has played in the last two games.
"I think we're a better team than we're showing when we get on the floor, but there's no sense sitting here talking about it. Are we going to tough it out and make the playoffs, or are we not going to make it?"
