OAKLAND, Calif. -- By the time reporters were allowed in the visiting locker room at Oracle Arena late Monday night, most of the Philadelphia 76ers already had cleared out. The television in the centre of the room was turned off. There were no box scores from the game on players chairs -- which is typical after most NBA games -- and there were no smiles to be had by anybody. After losing by a total of 88 points on consecutive nights in California, the 76ers just want to forget what happened. "Not going to turn on TV or read the papers," forward Evan Turner said. Marreese Speights scored a career-high 32 points to hand his former team a near-record setback, leading the Golden State Warriors past the woeful 76ers 123-80. Philadelphia nearly matched the NBA mark for the largest total margin of defeat in consecutive games. The Detroit Pistons lost by 95 points combined in back-to-back games in November 1966, according to STATS. "Its hard for everybody," Sixers coach Brett Brown said. "The reality of it is they have put in so much time and despite all the turmoil, its a group thats been together, stayed together. At times, you look up and you have to keep going and keep on playing with some level of dignity, and its hard doing that." After losing 123-78 at the Los Angeles Clippers on Sunday night in a game it trailed by 56 points in the third quarter, Philadelphia (15-3Cool figured it couldnt get much worse. It almost did. Speights finished 12-of-15 shooting and grabbed eight rebounds, and Stephen Curry added 23 points and eight assists to help the Warriors go ahead by 49 in the fourth quarter. "It was a thing of beauty," Golden State coach Mark Jackson said. Michael Carter-Williams scored 24 points, and Turner and Thaddeus Young had 12 points apiece for a rebuilding 76ers team that never put up much of a fight during its seventh straight loss. No other team in NBA history has lost two straight games by at least 40 points each. Philadelphia has now done it twice. The 76ers lost back-to-back games in April 1994 by a combined 93 points, and theyre struggling to explain -- and correct -- what has gone so wrong during this latest stretch. "You just look up at the scoreboard and see a lot of points. I really dont know," Turner said. "Were in the game at one point. We were down by like 10, and then the next thing you know it popped up to like 25 or 30." Philadelphia finishes a three-game road trip Wednesday night at Utah before heading into an All-Star break that cant come soon enough. Golden State outshot the Sixers 48.9 per cent to 36.7 per cent and outrebounded them 60-38 despite playing without centre Andrew Bogut (left shoulder injury) and backup centre Jermaine ONeal (sore right wrist). David Lee, who had missed the past two games with a sprained left shoulder and strained left hip, had 13 points and 13 rebounds in 31 minutes. Brown said before the game that he was happy his team had a chance to quickly atone for its horrendous showing in Los Angeles. Instead, the 76ers had another embarrassing performance. As if Philadelphias miserable two-day stretch wasnt bad enough, it was capped off by one of its former draft picks. Speights spent his first 2 1/2 seasons in Philadelphia before getting traded to Memphis. He split last season between Memphis and Cleveland before signing with the Warriors as a free agent last summer. The reserve big man made his first seven jumpers, including a 3-pointer and a layup through traffic that started a three-point play, to give Golden State a 47-27 lead midway through the second quarter. "They got real hot," Carter-Williams said. On his eighth attempt, Speights missed a 26-footer that had nearly everybody in the announced sellout crowd of 19,596 waiting to roar before it caromed off the rim. Speights left to a standing ovation before the Warriors went ahead 66-33 at halftime. Some fans even serenaded Speights with chants of "M-V-P!" after he began another three-point play in the third quarter that stretched Golden States lead to 92-48. "That was so funny. I started laughing," Speights said. "At least they still have trust in me, so its always good to have fans on your side." The defeat couldve been much worse, too. Jackson put in most of his reserves before the fourth quarter, though the highlights didnt stop from one of them. Speights made a step-back jumper to put Golden State up 107-58 with 9:41 to play before leaving to another ovation with 3:02 left. Brown kept most of his starters in until the final minutes to slice the deficit down a little. "Dont anybody feel sorry for us," Brown said. "We will wake up and be (OK) tomorrow." NOTES: The Warriors swept the season series against the 76ers for the first time since the 2007-08 season. ... Sixers reserve Hollis Thompson missed the game with a sprained right ankle. ...

FLIP SAUNDERS (Timberwolves): Im not the least bit surprised that he appointed himself as head coach after his search concluded.SAN DIEGO - The doors to baseballs Hall of Fame remained shut to this years Golden Era committee candidates.Nine players and one executive whose primary contributions were from 1947-72 all failed to receive the 75 per cent of the vote needed for election.The results today are a reminder that election to the Hall of Fame is incredibly difficult and the highest honour an individual can receive in baseball, Hall of Fame chairman Jane Forbes Clark said after the voting was announced Monday at the annual winter meetings.Dick Allen and Tony Oliva came closest, each receiving 11 of 16 votes, one shy of the 75 per cent needed for election. Jim Kaat appeared on 10 ballots, Maury Wills nine and Minnie Minoso eight.Ken Boyer, Gil Hodges, Billy Pierce and Luis Tiant each received three or fewer votes, as did the late Cincinnati Reds general manager Bob Howsam.Each voter was allowed to choose up to four candidates in a secret ballot, meaning there were 64 possible votes in all.Voters who deliberated at Sundays confidential committee meeting included Hall of Famers Jim Bunning, Rod Carew, Pat Gillick, Ferguson Jenkins, Al Kaline, Joe Morgan, Ozzie Smith and Don Sutton; baseball executives Jim Frey, David Glass, Roland Hemond and Bob Watson; and media members Steve Hirdt, Dick Kaegel, Phil Pepe and Tracy Ringolsby.It was a very, very difficult decision for each and every member of the committee in this process, said Gillick, an executive in the Hall. I think there were very, very healthy conversations on each candidate — the pros and and cons — and most of the conversation yesterday was on the very, very positive of these candidates. Its just unfortunate that one or two didnt get in. I am disappointed, but again it points out how very, very difficult it is to earn a plaque in Cooperstown.The Golden Era committee met for the second time since the Veterans Committee was reformatted in 2010 panels to consider three distinct eras.dddddddddddd In 2011, Chicago Cubs great Ron Santo was elected by the Golden Era panel. Managers Joe Torre, Bobby Cox and Tony La Russa were unanimously elected last year by the Expansion Era committee.The pre-Pre-Integration Era committee, which considers candidates whose primary contributions were through 1946, gathers at next years winter meetings in Nashville, Tennessee. The Expansion Era committee (1973 and later) votes again at the 2016 winter meetings in Washington, D.C.The Hall is constantly evaluating its procedures. Last summer it cut a players eligibility from 15 years to 10 on the Baseball Writers Association of America ballot, just the second change in voting rules since 1985. The BBWAA failed to elect a player in 2013.Dont expect a knee-jerk reaction to no one being elected by a Veterans committee for the first time since 2007.I think we need to take the results of not only this year but the past elections under this format and go back and have time to look at it and see if it still addresses the purpose of the Veterans committee as its laid out by era — by how the ballots composed of players, managers, umpires and see if its still viable, Clark said.The board never takes for granted that our procedures are perfect going forward, she added. We are always looking, we are always trying to make it better and we are always trying, most importantly, to uphold the standard of the National Baseball Hall of Fame.The BBWAA will announce its vote Jan. 6. Randy Johnson, Pedro Martinez and John Smoltz are the top newcomers. Craig Biggio, who fell two votes short of the 75 per cent needed in the 2014 balloting, tops holdovers that include Barry Bonds, Roger Clemens, Sammy Sosa, Mark McGwire, Mike Piazza, Jeff Bagwell and Tim Raines.
