December 24 Philadelphia Inquirer:
“The 76ers are dispersing for the holiday.
After Wednesday night’s 84-80 loss to the Boston Celtics, the players were allowed to fly to their respective homes for the Christmas holiday and will reconvene in Denver for their game against the Nuggets on Sunday.
Most players hopped an early flight out of Philadelphia on Thursday morning.
In past seasons, the Sixers have often held practices on the days before Christmas, but Sixers coach Doug Collins decided to give his players a quick breather before they continue on their holiday road trip.
“It’s probably good for us to have a day or two apart,” said guard Jodie Meeks.
The 11-18 Sixers are in the middle of a 15-day road trip that includes six more games and takes them into the new year.”
