• With the win tonight, the Sixers have won eight of the past nine meetings against the Kings.  Philly has won consecutive games for the first time since a season-high tying three-game span from 11/25-11/30.  Sacramento has lost six of its past seven games after winning three of the four games prior.

• Philly held Sacramento to 80 points tonight.  The Sixers have held opponents below 90 points in three of the past four games and 10 times overall this season (9-1 mark).  The Kings drop to 0-12 when scoring below 90 points this season.  Over the past six games, Sixer opponents are averaging 91.2 points after averaging 104.1 ppg the seven games prior.

• The Sixers outshot the Kings 47.4% to 38.0%.  Philly has outshot the opposition in six of the past nine games after being outshot in seven of the eight games prior.  The Sixers are 18-4 when outshooting opponents this season.  Philly is 10-0 when holding opponents below 40.0% shooting and is 15-6 when shooting 45.0% or better.

• Philly outrebounded Sacramento 47-35.  The Sixers were outrebounded in 12 of the previous 14 games and by 6.2 rpg overall during that span.  It is the third time the Sixers have outrebounded their opponent by 10+ boards this season and the first since 11/10 at Toronto.
