NBA: Struggling Sixers lose 25th game in a row

SAN ANTONIO (AFP) - The Philadelphia 76ers lost their 25th game in a row on Monday, moving to within one game of equalling the National Basketball Association's mark for futility in the league.

Austin Daye came off the bench to score 22 points as San Antonio cruised to a 113-91 over the hapless 76ers, who can match the longest single season losing streak in history with a loss to Houston on Thursday.

"It felt like they were running 100 miles per hour out there," Philadelphia's Thaddeus Young said of San Antonio.

"They were moving and passing and cutting, but that is a sign of a team who has been together for a few years and has been a championship-contending team each and every year."
