76ers end 26 game losing streak with a 25 point win over the Pistons
The only thing that was standing between the 76ers and ending the longest losing streak in US major sports history was the Detroit Pistons. Thankfully for future rookie of the year Michael Carter-Williams and his teammates, the Pistons didn’t put up much of a fight…or defense.
The 76ers won 123-98 and scored 70 first half points! The 25 point win is the largest in NBA history to snap a losing streak of 20+ games.
“It’s not something I want to be a part of,” 76ers guard Michael Carter-Williams said, “so it’s great that we got this win.”
Philly came out firing in the first quarter and lead by 10 (33-23) after 1. They scored 37 in the 2nd quarter and had a 32 point lead at the end of the 3rd.
“They came out and competed tonight. They wanted it more than we did,” Pistons guard Rodney Stuckey said.
“We were just happy to get a win,” Young said. “I don’t think it was for the streak or anything like that, we just wanted to go out there and win a basketball game and continue to just play.”
Surprisingly, despite the losing streak, the 76ers still have a better record than the Bucks who were blown out by the Miami Heat tonight.
