Hapless Sixers drop to 0-17


PHILADELPHIA: Kawhi Leonard tallied 26 points and 10 rebounds to lead the San Antonio Spurs to a 109-103 win over the Philadelphia 76ers, who moved one step closer to infamy on Monday (Tuesday in Manila). Philadelphia can tie the 2009-10 New Jersey Nets (0-18) for the worst start to a National Basketball Association season when they travel to Minnesota to play the Timberwolves on Wednesday. Their 17th consecutive loss came against a short-handed Spurs team that was without their two top guns, Tim Duncan and Tony Parker, who sat to get some extra rest. Tiago Splitter also didn’t play due to a calf problem. The Sixers endured a NBA-record 26-game losing streak last year en route to a 19-63 season.
