Sixers losing streak now at 16 gamesPosted by Inside Hoops
Here’s the Philadelphia Inquirer reporting on the Sixers, who are steadily mastering the art of losing basketball games:
The 76ers hadn’t won a game since Jan. 29 at Boston.
Saturday’s tilt against the struggling Utah Jazz provided their best opportunity to get back into the win column. Utah headed into the Wachovia Center losers of the first five games of their six-game road trip. In all, they had lost eight of 10 contests.
But instead of getting the much-needed victory, the Sixers were handed another reminder of their incompetence. This one was a 104-92 setback despite Tony Wroten’s career-high 30 points.
The Sixers (15-47) have set the franchise record for single-season consecutive home losses at 13. They have also lost 16 consecutive games home and away. That puts them four losses away from the franchise-record 20 straight defeats rung up by the infamous 1972-73 team.
