Michael Carter-Williams finished with 24 points, four rebounds, three assists, and four turnovers in 31 minutes as the 76ers made unwanted history as they became the second team in history to lose consecutive games by at least 40 points. (The other team was the 1993-94 Sixers squad).
Carter-Williams was the only bright spot on a terrible night in Philadelphia as he continues to make a strong case for rookie of the year honors. The Sixers starting point guard has been in somewhat of a slump lately, shooting just 34.6 percent from the field in February, so hopefully this strong showing will help him get moving back in the right direction.ANALYST: Matthew Beck
Jed Lowrie left Monday's game with a thumb injury. He's going back to Houston Tuesday for an MRI.
In all likelihood Jonathan Villar or Marwin Gonzalez will fill in for Lowrie if he misses extended time, but there's an outside chance the first-place Astros call up uber-prospect Carlos Correa for his first major league taste. Correa is murdering the Texas League (Double-A) to the tune of .375/.429/.719 with four home runs and two stolen bases. He's worth a speculative add in competitive leagues until the situation becomes more clear. Astros GM Jeff Luhnow has hinted that he wouldn't be scared to "lift" Correa straight from Double-A at some point. Analysis: Spencer Silva
