76ers on cusp of NBA record 27th straight loss

 

The Philadelphia 76ers are on the cusp of winning the NBA’s version of The Biggest Loser. Think of all the can’t-watch-this bad basketball in the league’s history. The seven-win Charlotte Bobcats in 2011-12 could only muster a 23-game skid. The 1972-73 Sixers that went 9-73; just 20 straight losses. Even the old Clippers and Grizzlies teams that couldn’t crack double-digit wins didn’t lose as many consecutive games as these Sixers. They have lost 26 straight games, a winless stretch matched in NBA history only by the 2010-11 Cleveland Cavaliers. The 76ers (15-57) can set the record for NBA ineptitude at home against the Detroit Pistons (26-46) tonight. – AP
