Twenty four losses in a row. That’s what happened tonight. The Sixers moved ahead of the Vancouver Grizzlies (1995-96), Denver Nuggets (1997-98) and Charlotte Bobcats (2011-12) for the second-longest, single-season losing streak. The next two games are at San Antonio and Houston, almost automatic losses. Well, those games are automatic losses. That sets the Sixers up with a match-up against Detroit at home on March 29th which could set the NBA record losing streak at 27 games in a row. Detroit is a bad team, but so are the Sixers. At least the Pistons have talented names on their roster. Lets take a view at some quick notes from tonight’s game.
- Henry Sims continued to impress, posting 18 points and 15 rebounds in 31 minutes — he was 8-of-15 from the field.
- Michael Carter-Williams finished with seven points, 11 rebounds and six assists. MCW shot 3-of-14 from the field, continuing to struggle mightily from the field.
- Besides Sims, Thaddeus Young was the only other Sixer in double figures, posting 28 points and seven rebounds on 10-of-26 shooting. Young was a dismal zero-for-seven from deep.
- Tony Wroten will miss the teams three game road trip with a sprained ankle..
