Mexico 76ers Suns BasketballAs we all know the 76ers have lost 11 straight games and their record now stands at 5 wins and 17 loses.  During this streak the L’s have varied in nature from ugly to frustrating to down right gut wrenching. 

The recent stretch non-victories been brutal enough to make us here at Philadunkia reflect on the streak and compile a list “by the numbers’ as they say in Sports Illustrated, of notes, items and events that have happened in and around the League since the Sixers last won a game on November 18th.
