Sixers Tie Record With 26th Straight Loss: It Wasn't Close

How much would it suck being on a professional sports team and lose 26 straight games?

That's a question Philadelphia 76ers fans and players are asking themselves today after the Sixers got blown out....again.

The Houston Rockets sent Philly to their record tying loss with a 120-98 win Thursday night in Houston.

Just to emphasize how bad the Sixers are, their last win came in January.

James Harden had a triple-double for the Rockets, while James Anderson managed to score nearly 1/3 of Philly's points himself, tallying 30 on the night.

The loss puts the Sixers record at 15-57, which oddly, even if they lose out this season, won't give them the worst all-time record in NBA history.

That honor belongs to a much older Philadelphia 76ers team that went 9-73 back in the early 1970's.

And while everyone involved with this years team says they aren't tanking to grab the top pick in next years draft, they aren't doing themselves or their fans any good by just being outmanned night in and night out either.

We'll see what happens.
