The Philadelphia 76ers had a loss for the record book Saturday night. Mike Conley scored 19 points and Zach Randolph had 14 to lead the Memphis Grizzlies to a 103-77 win at Philadelphia, sending the 76ers to a franchise record-tying 20th consecutive loss.
They can set the team mark with a loss Monday night at Indiana.
The 76ers also lost 20 straight games from Jan. 9 to Feb. 11, 1973, on their way to a 9-73 record, still the worst season in NBA history. The league record for consecutive losses in a season is 26 set by the 2010-11 Cleveland Cavaliers.
That mark just may be next: The 76ers (15-51) play only one team over the next six games with a losing record, New York on Friday, and the Knicks are on a six-game winning streak.
Michael Carter-Williams led the 76ers with 23 points and Thaddeus Young had 20.
Indiana 112, at Detroit 104 (OT): Paul George scored 30 points, Andrew Bynum had 15 points and nine rebounds in his second game with his new team, and the Pacers rallied from a 25-point second-quarter deficit to beat the Pistons and remain 31/2 games ahead of Miami in the race for the top seeding in the Eastern Conference.
