Sixers losing streak reaches 17 gamesPosted by Inside Hoops
Here’s the Philadelphia Inquirer reporting on the woeful 76ers:
Another night, another loss.
It was business as usual Monday for the tanking 76ers. This time, it was a 123-110 setback to the New York Knicks at Madison Square Garden.
The loss dropped the Sixers to 15-48 and extended their losing streak to 17 games. That puts them three losses away from the franchise-record 20 straight defeats rung up by the infamous 1972-73 squad.
It also marked the Sixers’ ninth straight double-digit loss.
“To be honest with you, I’m trying to not even think about it,” Michael Carter-Williams said of the losing streak. “You know, we lose, it’s on to the next game. I can’t dwell on us losing 17 in a row. That’s not doing anything for me. That’s not doing anything for the team, for the coaching staff. Nobody.”
“Whatever all the talk is about us losing 17 games and people writing about it, that’s fine. We are going to stay focused as a team. And we are going to focus in on a win.”
