Brown's team had just hung with Portland, one of the league's best teams. The Sixers stayed competitive even though they didn't hit a single three-pointer and grabbed just seven offensive rebounds. It was their 14th straight defeat. One more and the Sixers will tie the franchise's all-time mark for the longest losing streak to start a season. But Brown said he saw some light. "We're not that far away. I genuinely believe that," Brown said Monday. "I think that this team is starting to see bits and hints of a team. Nobody is rolling over or pointing fingers. These guys are great." Philadelphia Inquirer

An NBA scout told the New York Post's Fred Kerber the other day that the rebuilding Sixers “are pathetic. I have to keep their roster in front of me because I don’t know who the (heck) these guys are.” With seven undrafted players on the roster on a team that has suffered six double-digit setbacks in their last seven outings, winning is going to be difficult for the Sixers. And Brown knows it. “I didn't accept this job to pad my resume,” said Brown, a 12-year Spurs assistant, beforehand. The Intelligencer

Former 76ers coach and all-time great player Doug Collins is hoping general manager SamHinkie’s methods eventually produce a winner. “It’s a little painful for me right now to be a former Sixer, see the losses and all,” Collins said. “When I left I talked to [team owner] Josh Harris and I said regardless of what you’re going to do, stick with the plan. You can’t switch in midstream. If it gets painful, you’re going to have to ride through it. I felt they were going to blow the team up and start all over again. “Michael Carter-Williams was the Rookie of the Year. Nerlens Noel looks like he has a chance to be a high-energy, active defender, shot-blocker, rebounder. I don’t know if he’s ever going to be a big-time scorer. [Joel] Embiid, can he get healthy? The [Dario] Saric kid overseas, all the draft picks. There’s pain that goes with that and that’s why I said I have a lot of respect for [coach] Brett Brown. Boston Globe

Sixers head coach Brett Brown gathered his team on Friday afternoon before practicing at the Philadelphia College of Osteopathic Medicine. He said he talked "very quickly" about Thursday's preseason loss to Boston before moving on "to the most important thing." He told all the players that they needed to find a way to reach out - on their own terms - to Joel Embiid. Brown told the team that "their friend, their teammate" had went through an "incredible, personal tragedy." The rookie center left the team on Thursday after learning that his 13-year-old brother Arthur had died in Cameroon. Arn Tellem, Embiid's agent, said Embiid's brother died in a car accident. "The motive is to just do the right thing," said Brown. "It's just trying to help him in a terrible time. To see a young man have to go through that and to be with him while he's going through that initial news, there are no words that you can choose to describe that." Philadelphia Inquirer
