Rejoice, Philadelphia! Rejoice!

At least breathe a sigh of relief.

The 76ers used a hot-shooting performance and all-around team effort to avoid setting the record for longest losing streak in major American professional sports.

Thaddeus Young and Michael Carter-Williams each scored 21 points to help the Sixers to a 123-98 rout of the Detroit Pistons on Saturday night, snapping their NBA record-tying 26-game losing streak.

It was their first win in 59 days since edging Boston on a buzzer-beater 95-94 on Jan. 29.
