The 76ers finally snapped a historic losing streak and transferred shame from Philly to Detroit, at least for a day or two.
Detroit could care less about winning (sound familiar?), so there is no real shame in The Palace at Auburn Hills. Reason being that the Pistons owe a draft pick from a no-so-great Ben Gordon trade in 2012. Lottery protected for last season, and top-8 protected for this season, the Pistons are and will be looking to lose, for the remainder of this season, so they don’t accidentally move into the 8th seed.
But Philly is just grateful to not single-handedly hold the record of “most consecutive losses” in sports. Not just one of the least prestigious records in the NBA but in all major sports!
After snapping the 26-game losing streak, the 2013-14 Sixers now hold the same record along with the 2010-’11 Cleveland Cavaliers.
