76ers on brink tying NBA record for futility

 

They are a loss away from becoming the Philadelphia 26ers. As in, losers of 26 in a row. A skid that would match the longest losing streak in NBA history and leave the Philadelphia 76ers one loss of holding the record for the four major professional sports. “It’s tough we lose them consecutively, but it’s the NBA,” guard Tony Wroten said. “You play another day.” With a another loss today at Houston, the Sixers (15-56) will tie the NBA record of 26 straight losses set by the 2010-11 Cleveland Cavaliers. The potential record-setter is Saturday at home against Detroit. – AP
