When: 7:00 PM ET
Where: Wells Fargo Center
TV/Radio: CSN/97.5 The Fanatic
The 76ers continue their march into the record books tonight as they take on the Sacramento Kings down in South Philadelphia. Brett Brown’s ball club has lost 17 straight, which puts in them tied for 22nd for longest losing streak all time in the NBA. They are three off the team record of 20, and nine off the League record of 26 set by the 2010-2011 Cavilers.
Sacramento went from a team that seemed like it competed annually for the Western Conference Championship, to a franchise that I am not sure how they will ever fix themselves. I personally have nothing against the capital of California. But I feel its difficult to sell the idea of Sacramento in an NBA dominated by destination cities and stars teaming up, together. It isn’t one of the sexier cities.
This cosmetic set back aside, the Kings haven’t been playing the best basketball as of late. They have lost six of their last eight and find themselves in a three-way tie for dead last in the west with the Lakers and the Jazz.
Sixers are relatively healthy, minus Nerlens Noel and Jason Richardson (yes, he is still on the roster). The Kings will be without Carl Landry for the game.
The 76ers have lost 17 in a row, and still don’t have the worst record in the NBA, Two games ahead of Milwaukee coming into tonight. I hope they find a way to stay above them. The worst record is almost a death sentence when attempting to get the first pick. But who knows if this NBADL team that is borrowing the Sixers uniforms can do it.
