Dire Sixers lose again

Philadelphia 76ers head coach Brett Brown.

The Philadelphia 76ers continued their epic losing streak on Wednesday with a 115-98 defeat at the hands of the visiting Sacramento Kings.

Henry Sims had 20 points and also grabbed ten rebounds for the Sixers, but it was to little avail as Philadelphia edge closer to the all-time losing streak record of 26, held by the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Losers of 18 in a row, the 76ers play the Indiana Pacers and Chicago Bulls twice in the next few days along with the Memphis Grizzlies, New York Knicks and San Antonio Spurs before visiting the Houston Rockets at the end of the month in a game that could tie the Cavaliers in NBA futility.

Over in the Atlantic Division, the top two sides won when the Toronto Raptors eased by the Detroit Pistons and the Brooklyn Nets continued their mastery of the Miami Heat, 3.20 to win the NBA Championship outright.

DeMar DeRozan had 25 points and Jonas Valanciumas led a strong rebounding effort for the hosts at the Air Canada Centre in Toronto as the Raptors, 51.00 to win the NBA Championship outright, maintained their three-game lead over the Nets with the 101-87 triumph.

Brooklyn made it three straight over the Heat in the regular season with a one-point win at the American Airlines Arena in Miami.

Paul Pierce dropped in a game-high 29 points for the visitors who were without Kevin Garnett, but still came out on the right end of a 96-95 scoreline. Unless there is a late season collapse by the Nets, the two sides are unlikely to meet in the first round of the post-season as Brooklyn hone in on a fifth or possibly fourth seed.
