Philadelphia 76ers Tie NBA Record With 26th Consecutive Defeat

March 28 (Bloomberg) -- The Philadelphia 76ers tumbled to their 26th consecutive loss, matching the National Basketball Association record, falling 120-98 last night at Houston.

James Harden had 26 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists for the Rockets (49-22), who won their fifth straight. Houston built a 20-point lead after three quarters and then coasted to the victory.

James Anderson had 30 points for the 76ers (15-57), who tied the streak of the 2010-11 Cleveland Cavaliers -- who were in their first season after losing LeBron James to the Miami Heat as a free agent.

Philadelphia can break the mark tomorrow night at home against the Detroit Pistons (26-45).
