Philadelphia 76ers four losses away from being worst team ever

Published Add your comment

The Philadelphia 76ers are about to break an NBA record with their current losing streak.

It's not one that you particular want but if the 76ers lose the next three games then they will become the worst team in NBA history.

Agonisingly the Sixers were only one point away from snapping the streak earlier against the New York Knicks, who are on an eight game renaissance.

But if the Sixers lose against the Chicago Bulls tomorrow and title outsiders, the San Antonio Spurs, then the Houston Rockets could make them officially the joint worst team ever.

The record is currently held by the 2010-2011 Cleveland Cavaliers with a 26 game losing streak.

At the moment, they are tied for third worst and a loss tomorrow would tie them as second worst with, ironically, the two Cleveland Cavaliers teams between 1980-1982.

No one wants to see a team tank badly, especially in this amazing season of basketball. But if someone has to go down in history as the losing team, you might as well do it in style, no?

Well not if you're head coach Brett Brown, who was whistled for committing a technical foul in the fourth quarter against the Knicks.
