The Sixers won their 34th game Monday, and in a 66-game NBA season, that means a winning record. It was their first since 2005.

In a 105-87 victory over the Nets, the Sixers had 25 assists and seven turnovers, six players in double figures and repeated opportunities to fade. But they didn't.

That made Doug Collins 2-for-2 in postseason appearances as the Sixers' coach.

 "We are trying to establish that this is something that we want to do every year," Collins said. "We'd like to be a team that is going to be on the rise. You have to look at us right now, with the wins we have. And Boston is going to win our division; they have 37 wins. So we think the gap has been narrowed a little."
