PHILADELPHIA (AP) The 76ers had a loss for the record book.
The Sixers can set the team mark with a loss Monday night at Indiana.
The Sixers also lost 20 straight games from Jan. 9, 1973-Feb. 11, 1973, in a 9-73 season. The NBA record for consecutive losses in a season is 26 set by the 2010-11 Cleveland Cavaliers.
That mark just may be next: The Sixers (15-51) play only one team over the next six games with a losing record, the Knicks on Friday, and they are on a six-game winning streak.
''This is not slit-your-wrist time. This is not even close to that,'' Philadelphia coach Brett Brown said before the game. ''This is about building a program and understanding the short-term pain for a lot of long-term gain.
AUBURN HILLS, Mich. (AP) - Paul George scored 30 points and Indiana rallied from a 25-point second-quarter deficit to defeat Detroit.
Josh Smith scored 23 points for the Pistons, who lost star center Andre Drummond in the first quarter to a neck injury. Drummond was able to walk off with some assistance, but he was expected to have further testing.
Both teams struggled on offense, with the Bulls shooting 40 percent and the Kings 37 percent.
The Bulls, who are fourth in the Eastern Conference, improved to 3-2 on their six-game homestand. The Kings are 2-4 on their seven-game road trip.
Cousins hit a layup with 1:01 left to cut the Bulls' lead to 88-85.
Gibson responded with a jumper and the Bulls made four of six free throws to seal the win.
WASHINGTON (AP) - John Wall scored 33 points, Drew Gooden got 11 of his 21 in the final quarter and Washington overcame a 10-point fourth-quarter deficit to beat Brooklyn and move past the Nets for fifth place in the Eastern Conference.
Gooden's 3-pointer broke a 94-94 tie with 2:37 left. Trevor Ariza then scored off an offensive rebound with 44 seconds left and Wall capped it with dunk.
Trailing 82-72 early in the fourth, the Wizards went on a 15-4 run keyed by Gooden (8 of 11 from the field) and Al Harrington.
Washington completed a sweep of the season series (3-0).
NEW YORK (AP) - Carmelo Anthony scored 23 points, Tim Hardaway Jr. had 20, and New York beat Milwaukee for its season-high sixth straight victory as the team prepares to welcome Phil Jackson back to the franchise.
New York' playoff push has taken a backseat to the news that Jackson was coming in to run the Knicks' front office. The Knicks will introduce the 11-time champion as a coach at a news conference Tuesday morning.
Ty Lawson, Denver's leading scorer this season, handed out 11 assists, but went 0 for 12 from the field and finished with two points.
The win kept the Hawks 3 1/2 games ahead of the Knicks for the eighth and final Eastern Conference playoff spot.
