Sports fans, good day to you all.

We’ve got plenty of breaking news to get through today; some of it based on team updates, some of it not. In any case, it’s better if we get right to it rather than waste any more time.

Watch the video above if you’re looking to be told the latest headlines. Read on below for some added details.

76ers equal losing record

It’s been a week of records in the NBA. First LeBron James entered the top 25 in the all-time NBA assist rankings, then the Golden State Warriors made history by moving to 16-0 with their win over the Lakers.

Well, the Philadelphia 76ers have joined in on the fun, just not in the way they wanted. They’ve drawn level with the worst losing streak the league has ever seen with their loss to the Boston Celtics.

That defeat marks their… wait for it… 26th consecutive loss. Bad times for the 76ers, it’s safe to say.

Kidd ejected from Bucks game

Meanwhile, Jason Kidd - head coach of the Milwaukee Bucks - was ejected from last night’s game against the Sacramento Kings for slapping a ball out of the hands of a match official in frustration.

The Bucks were 120-109 down to the Kings with 1:49 left in the fourth quarter when Kidd attempted to call a timeout in desperation.

His pleas fell on deaf ears and, as a result, he took it out on Zach Zarba - as shown in the footage below. It’s safe to say he’ll be looking at a fine, ban or maybe even both.

Tomsula opens up on future with 49ers

Lastly, San Francisco 49ers coach Jim Tomsula has opened up on his future after his team’s woeful start to the current NFL campaign.

The 49ers have won just three games all season and are sitting at the bottom of the NFC West.

Tomsula, however, said he isn’t worried about losing his job, insisting no conversations have been had on the subject with those above him in San Fran.
