Default 76ers barely get to free throw line

The Sixers (13-15), who begin an 11-day, seven-game Western Conference road trip Wednesday in Memphis, so far seem to prefer to stand outside and shoot jump shots rather than attack the basket and absorb the hard hits that prompt officials to call fouls.

"We just keep talking to them about the 'moment of truth,' " said Sixers coach Doug Collins, who gave the players Christmas Eve off. "At the moment of truth, just go in there and get hit. We had the ball in the paint 48 times [Sunday]. We've got to just get in there and find a way."

Of the 30 teams in the NBA, only Orlando, with an average of 16.5, attempts fewer free throws per game than the Sixers, who average 18.0. It's not surprising that none of the four teams ranked at the bottom of the list has a winning record.
