The Cleveland Cavaliers set the record of 26 consecutive losses in the 2010-11 season. The Vancouver Grizzlies (1995-96), Denver Nuggets (1997-98) and Charlotte Bobcats (2011-12) each lost 23 straight.

The Sixers also lost their 17th straight home game since beating Charlotte on Jan. 15.

After the Sixers were 3-0 following a Nov. 2 win over Chicago, fans held signs that said, "3-0. That's No Bull."

That seems like another season at times after the Sixers traded Evan Turner, Spencer Hawes and Lavoy Allen at the deadline for draft picks, a necessary step for a rebuilding franchise.
