Sixers receive technical foul for trying to play with six players

BY foxsports • November 19, 2015

The 76ers fell to 0-12 on the season after a disappointing performance against the Pacers on Wednesday, but at least they tried to temporarily gain an unfair advantage.

Candace Buckner of the Indianapolis Star tells the story of how the Sixers briefly tried to play with six players, which obviously isn't allowed.

At this point, anything is on the table as Philadelphia attempts to get its first win of the season -- even things that are against the rules. 

There are plenty of reasons the Philadelphia 76ers remain winless this season, but one play during the Indiana Pacers’ 112-85 victory on Wednesday night helped explain it.

Late in the second quarter, the 76ers broke a timeout huddle and did not realize that six players had walked onto the floor. That embarrassing moment did not result in one of the team’s several turnovers, but it did earn a technical foul. Not like the Pacers needed any free points.
