Paul George had 24 points for the Pacers, who staked the 76ers to a 15-6 lead before taking the lead and pulling away.
The Cleveland Cavaliers set the NBA record for consecutive losses with 26, in the 2010-11 season. The 76ers, who haven't won since Jan. 29 at Boston, might be hard-pressed to get a victory in their next five games. Four are against playoff-bound teams — Chicago (twice), San Antonio and Houston. Their best shot at a win during that stretch might be Friday's home game against New York — but the Knicks have won six in a row.
If the 76ers lose all five, a home game against Detroit on March 29 looms as the potential record breaker.
Oklahoma City 97, at Chicago 85: Kevin Durant finished with 35 points and 12 rebounds, and the Thunder bounced back from its most lopsided loss of the season, a 23-point defeat at home against Dallas on Sunday. Durant ran his streak of games with 25 or more points to 32, the longest in the NBA since Michael Jordan had in 40 in a row during the 1986-87 season.
at Dallas 94, Boston 89: Dirk Nowitzki led a balanced scoring effort with 19 points, and the Mavericks opened a franchise-record eight-game homestand with a hard-fought win over the Celtics, who finished 0-15 on the road against the Western Conference.
