The Philadelphia 76ers have taken tanking to a new level.

The Sixers tied the NBA record of 26 straight losses with a 120-98 defeat to the Houston Rockets on Thursday.

Philadelphia, which hasn't won since a buzzer-beating victory in Boston over the Celtics on Jan. 29, joins the 2010-11 Cleveland Cavaliers as the only two teams to drop 26 in a row.

The Sixers can set the NBA record with a loss to the Detroit Pistons on Saturday night.
