The odds are not looking good for the Philadelphia 76ers.

One more loss stands between them and a dubious distinction of ineptitude.

Austin Daye netted 22 points off the bench and the San Antonio Spurs handed the Sixers their 25th-straight loss following a 113-91 rout Monday night.

Philadelphia visits the Houston Rockets on Thursday to avoid matching the longest single-season losing skid in NBA history held by the 2010-11 Cleveland Cavaliers. The Rockets are 28-7 at home this season.

The Sixers, who have dropped 11 straight on the road, haven't won since a buzzer-beating victory in Boston over the Celtics on Jan. 29. Evan Turner scored the winning bucket and he's now a member of the Indiana Pacers.

Tim Duncan poured in 19 points for the Spurs, who have won 14 in a row.

Tony Parker sat out the game for San Antonio due to a sore left Achilles.

Michael Carter-Williams and Thaddeus Young had 17 points apiece to lead Philadelphia.

The Spurs led 31-24 after a quarter of play before they netted the first 15 points of the second to pull away for good.

Daye hit a pair of triples and recorded eight points during the surge, which he capped with a jumper for a commanding 45-24 advantage with 7:20 left in the second.

San Antonio took a 60-44 advantage into the break and an 89-68 cushion into the fourth, where they led by as many as 24 before cruising to the easy win.
