SACRAMENTO - After blowing an eight-point lead late in the fourth quarter against Denver on Thursday, the 76ers (26-42) will attempt to end their 15-game road losing streak against a Sacramento (25-45) team that, unfortunately for the Sixers, has been playing better lately.
Like the Sixers, Sacramento is out of the playoff race. However, the Kings are playing better than the 76ers, the lowest-scoring team (92.4) in the league coming into Sunday’s game.
“We’re really not focusing on the losing streak,” guard Jrue Holiday said at the Sixers morning shootaround at Sleep Train Arena. “No one discusses it. We’re concentrating on closing out games better.”
The Sixers have won just four of their last 19 games. They are just five road losses shy of matching their longest road losing streak in the last 25 years.
