(SportsNetwork.com) - A side story to the futility of the Philadelphia 76ers is whether the citys NFL franchise will produce more wins this season. The Eagles have a 9-3 record with four games to go and the Sixers are off to a dreadful 0-16 start, the worst in team history. At least the Sixers have 66 games remaining on the schedule. Philadelphia has a very slim chance of tasting victory when the streaking San Antonio Spurs invade the Wells Fargo Center Monday night. The defending NBA champions, winners of seven straight, may rest some players because tonight is the second of a back-to-back after a win over the Boston Celtics on Sunday. The Sixers will close out a four-game homestand and are 0-9 in front of a generally sparse local crowd. They dropped a 110-103 decision to the Dallas Mavericks Saturday and were led by K.J. McDaniels, who had 21 points and 13 rebounds. Michael Cartyer-Williams posted the third triple-double of his career with 18 points, a career-high 16 assists and 10 rebounds. Alexey Shved had 18 points in the loss. Philadelphia had 24 turnovers for 27 Dallas points, and has turned the ball over 44 times in the past two games. Weve just gotta keep our group together and move them along, Sixers coach Brett Brown said. Philadelphia is two losses away from tying the 2009-10 New Jersey Nets (0-18) for the worst start to an NBA season. Sixers guard and leading scorer Tony Wroten (17.9 ppg) did not play versus the Mavs because of a knee issue and is questionable Monday. Carter-Williams (ankle) and center Nerlens Noel (hip) are probable. The 76ers, who are scoring an NBA-low 90.8 points, will visit Minnesota Wednesday and are scheduled to play four of the next five games on the road. They are 0-7 away from home. San Antonio will try to extend its winning streak to eight games in south Philly and handed the Celtics a 111-89 defeat at TD Garden. Danny Green sank 4-of-9 3-pointers en route to 18 points, while Boris Diaw and Tim Duncan scored 15 and 14 points, respectively, for the Spurs, who shot 48.2 percent and scored 66 points in the second half to Bostons 40. Kawhi Leonard scored 12 points and Tony Parker added nine and nine assists. The Spurs play the right way all the time, said Boston coach Brad Stevens. They do it for 48 minutes. They do it for 82 games. Spurs coach Gregg Popovich returned to the bench from a two-game absence following a minor medical procedure. Assistant coach Ettore Messina took his place. The Spurs opened a four-game road trip Sunday and will also visit Brooklyn and Memphis. They are 6-3 outside the Alamo City and 10-1 in the last 11 overall. San Antonio is second in opponents scoring at 92.5 ppg and has held the opposition under 100 points in seven of the last nine contests. The Spurs are climbing up the Southwest ladder with a 12-4 record, while Memphis is an NBA- best 15-2 and Houston has a 13-4 mark. Philadelphia suffered a 100-75 loss in San Antonio on Nov. 17 and Matt Bonner led the hosts with 18 points. Carter-Williams scored 16 in that one for the 76ers, who are winless in the past seven matchups between the teams. The Spurs have won three in a row in the City of Brotherly Love. Brown, of course, was an assistant under Popovich for seven seasons. Nike NBA Jerseys . With Washington teammate Nene drawing double-teams coming off his big game against the Lakers, Gortat scored 25 points on 11-of-12 shooting and grabbed eight rebounds to lead the Wizards to a 100-92 win in overtime over Milwaukee on Wednesday night. NBA Jerseys . Its like being on Broadway, everything you do matters. Id want to be good though!

Fake NBA Jerseys . Amid a rain of confetti, Shabazz Napier basked in the celebration on the court after being named the Most Outstanding Player of the Final Four following the 60-54 win over Kentucky. NBA Jerseys China . Tokarski, a somewhat controversial choice -- with his 10 games of NHL experience and all -- to replace an injured Carey Price in Game Two had a night to remember, turning back a Rangers team that was dominating play from the get-go, outshooting the Canadiens 14-4 in the first period and 37-25 overall.INDIANAPOLIS - Suzy Whaley is taking another crack at golfs old boys network.More than one decade after becoming the first woman to qualify for a PGA event in 58 years, the 48-year-old Whaley became the first female officer in the PGA of Americas history. Shes on course to become the organizations first female president in 2018, too.Whaley received 52.63 per cent of the 114 votes in a three-way race for secretary near the end of Saturdays meeting in Indianapolis. Russ Libby was second at 33.33 per cent and Michael Haywood was third at 14.04 per cent.As the final tally was posted on two video boards in the front of a hotel ballroom, Whaleys supporters pumped their fists, delegates gave her a standing ovation and Whaley hugged everybody in sight as she took a deliberate 5-minute stroll from the back of the room to one of two head tables.Its an incredibly special day for me, my family, the Connecticut section and our members, Whaley said. Our association has a long-term strategic plan and Im excited to part of implementing that plan. We have so many opportunities to bring diverse groups into the game, thats what Im excited about.The selection of Whaley, who in 2003 became the first woman to qualify for a mens event since Babe Zaharias, is just a start.She will serve the next two years as PGA secretary, then two years as vice-president before starting a two-year term as president and another two-year term as honorary president. Each promotion must be approved through a formal vote, which is usually considered a formality.For the PGA, its a chance to turn the page on one of the organizations darker chapters. President Ted Bishop was ousted last month after using social media to call European pro Ian Poulter a Lil Girl and writing that Poulter sounded like a little girl squealing during recess.Supporters made it clear thatt the association needed to go in a different direction and that choosing Whaley would help.ddddddddddddWho among is more passionate about the teaching the game to every person, to show the magic of our game to every child, to every man and to every woman? Connecticut section member Gary Reynolds said in his nominating speech. Sometimes we are lucky, lucky to experience a moment where we can embrace change.Voters didnt just want to embrace change, they wanted to embrace Whaley, a mother of two and the director of instruction at her own golf academy in Croswell, Connecticut. In 2010, the Farmington, Connecticut, resident became the second woman elected to the PGAs board of directors.But the historic vote drew raves from every corner of the room — friends, supporters, board members, teaching pros and especially her new executive colleagues.Whaley was so touched that she forgot to insert her own name into the oath during the swearing-in ceremony.I am so proud to be a PGA member and so honoured to serve all of you, she said as her voice cracked.The selection of Whaley wasnt the only business Saturday.Voters approved Derek Sprague, of Malone, New York, to become the associations 39th president. They also voted to promote Paul Levy of Indian Wells, California, from secretary to vice-president. And they extended Allen Wronowskis term an additional two years. He will fill the void left by Bishops ouster.But it was the election of Whaley that could have the greatest long-term impact for an organization that has been mostly male-dominated that will celebrate its centennial anniversary in 2016.I think its great to have a woman in a national leadership position because I think it opens the door for women in other leadership positions, Sprague said. It can only inspire other women to get into leadership positions. ' ' '
