Philadelpha 76ers @ Houston Rockets
According to NBA.com, the Philadelphia 76ers are one loss away from becoming the Philadelphia 26ers—as in 26 consecutive losses.
The Sixers haven’t won a game since January 29th.
That means no wins in February and two losses away from a zero-win March.
On the other hand, the Houston Rockets haven’t lost to a team with a losing record since January 10th and are currently on a four-game winning streak.
Look for the Sixers to tie the NBA record for the longest losing streak, previously set by the Cleveland Cavaliers in their first post-LeBron James season.
