It was a no-decision for
PHILADELPHIA -- Down and out or down to the wire, the 76ers are freefalling toward NBA history. D.J Augustin scored 20 points and Taj Gibson had 19 points and 13 rebounds to lead the Chicago Bulls to a 102-94 win over Philadelphia on Wednesday night, handing the 76ers their 22nd straight loss. The Sixers are four losses shy of matching the NBA record for the longest single-season losing streak. The Cleveland Cavaliers set the record of 26 consecutive losses in the 2010-11 season. The Vancouver Grizzlies (1995-96), Denver Nuggets (1997-98) and Charlotte Bobcats (2011-12) each lost 23 straight. "Winnable game," 76ers coach Brett Brown said. "I say that because a group thats been losing ... still stays together. They still compete. Im proud of them." The Sixers also lost their 17th straight home game since beating Charlotte on Jan. 15. They were 8-11 at home at that point and had already defeated Miami, the Bulls, and Houston in Philadelphia. After the Sixers were 3-0 following a Nov. 2 win over Chicago, fans held signs that said, "3-0. Thats No Bull." That seems like another season at times after the Sixers traded Evan Turner, Spencer Hawes and Lavoy Allen at the deadline for draft picks, a necessary step for a rebuilding franchise. Unlike most of the first 21 losses in the streak, the Sixers were competitive until the final possessions, never letting the Bulls lead by more than 11. Sixers centre Byron Mullens, who hadnt attempted a shot all game, hit consecutive 3s to pull the Sixers to 83-80. He made a nifty save on a ball headed out of bounds, leading to Henry Sims bucket and a foul. With a chance to tie the game, Sims missed the free throw with 8:19 left. Thaddeus Young bailed him out a possession later with a 3-pointer that made it 85-all. Joakim Noah buried a go-ahead 3 from the top of the arc and Augustin followed with one from the sideline to put the Bulls up 91-85. Tony Wrotens 3 made it 93-90 but it was just more false hope. Carlos Boozers emphatic dunk stretched the lead to six and the Bulls did enough to hang on and move to .500 on the road (17-17). The Sixers have lost three of four by less than 10 points after losing each of the previous 10 games by double-digits. "We knew it would be this type of game," Augustin said. "We just tried to fight them until the end and it was a fight, a real fight." The Sixers could make it 23 straight with a loss Friday to New York. Then three straight on the road at Chicago, San Antonio and Houston. If the Sixers lose all of those games, the potential record 27th loss would come March 29 vs. Detroit. Young scored 24 points for the Sixers and Wroten had 17. "Were going to get one soon," Wroten said. Boozer had 12 points and 11 rebounds for the Bulls and Noah added 14 points and 10 boards. The Sixers solid 11-for-24 3-point shooting was undone by a 9 of 19 mark from the free-throw line. "There is just no inch for error," Brown said. "Theres no wiggle room at all." The Sixers stayed tight and chipped away in the third, making it 64-61 on Youngs 3-pointer. Sims was 0 for 7 from the floor until his first basket cut it to 64-63. The Sixers just couldnt make the clutch basket or two to finally take the lead. Theyd get as close again as two points in the third and trailed only 75-69 at the end of the quarter. "I think Bretts done a great job with them," Bulls coach Tom Thibodeau said. "Theyve got a lot of moving parts. I give a guy like Young a lot of credit for his professionalism -- how hard he plays. They shot the ball well. The Bulls played without Derrick Rose, the former MVP point guard who tore the meniscus in his right knee at Portland in November and was ruled out for the remainder of the season. Thibodeau said Rose could could be ready to return if he gets the call to play this summer for Team USA at the world championships. "I know hed like to do it," Thibodeau said. "I know how USA basketball feels about him. If hes cleared to do it, Id love to see him do it." NOTES: The Sixers are 3-32 since a four-game winning streak ended Jan. 4. ... The Bulls have won seven of eight against the Sixers.

Toronto starter Mark Buehrle fell trying to throw a pitch, balking in a run. Closer Casey Janssen didnt finish the ninth. Even Rogers Centre couldnt make up its mind, opening and then closing the dome. When the dust had settled, the Blue Jays had defeated the lowly Texas Rangers 9-6 Sunday, securing the series win over the worst club in the majors. The teams combined for 27 hits. But it was hardly a precision batting display. Texas left nine men on base while going 4-for-15 with runners in scoring position. Toronto stranded eight and went six-for-13 with runners in scoring position. Melky Cabrera answered a Texas comeback with a leadoff homer in the seventh inning and singled home two more runs in the eighth to lead the Jays. Cabrera gave Toronto a 6-5 lead when he sent reliever Neftali Felizs third pitch of the day deep to centre field. It was the left-fielders 12th home run of the season, delighting the crowd of 36,011 on a 23-degree day. One inning later, Munenori Kawasaki made it 7-5 with an RBI single after Toronto loaded the bases with one out on three singles. Then Cabrera slammed a single to right-centre to bring home Anthony Gose and Jose Reyes. Toronto (51-49) has now won seven of the last eight completed series against Texas (39-59) at Rogers Centre. Perhaps more importantly, the Toronto offence woke out of its slumber. The nine runs were the most by the Jays since they scored 14 on June 20 in Cincinnati. Toronto, which had lost its last three series, also notched its first multi-homer game since July 2. "We came to life today," said manager John Gibbons, who noticed a change in attitude early in the game. "I felt a little more energy in the dugout. The guys seemed a little more relaxed, some funny comments. Theyve been grinding it pretty hard lately. Its been wearing on them." Janssen, recovered from a stomach ailment, gave up three hits and a run in a nervous ninth and was replaced by Aaron Loup with two outs and men on first and second. The left-hander finally ended it by inducing former Jay J.P. Arencibia to pop out on a 3-and-2 pitch for his fourth save. "I just didnt see that crispness coming out there," Gibbons said of Janssen, who converted 14 of 16 save opportunities in the first half of the season. Left-hander Brett Cecil, coming on in the eighth with no outs and a man on second, snuffed out an earlier Rangers threat. Cabrera went 3-for-5 and has now hit safely in 11 of his last 12 games and 23 of his last 28. He also made a fine catch in left field, snagging the ball at his shoe top. "I just think the all-star break did him wonders," said Gibbons. "Hes out there every day. It did most guys some good. He just needed to refresh a little bit. His hand, speed, bat speed looks a little bit better. Thats the key to hitting, if you get a good swing. " Buehrle did not look fresh as he went six innings in his eighth unsuccessful attempt to record a win since June 1. "He was a little off," said Gibbons. "Its too bad he hasnt had a win in so long," he added. "Because hes definitely pitched well enough to have a few moore under his belt.dddddddddddd But thats the way baseball is sometimes. Theres no justice in this business." The day wasnt all bad for Buehrle. He picked off two Rangers and is now five shy of tying Andy Pettitte for most career pickoffs (105). Plus he was headed to the Tim McGraw show after the game. Todd Redmond (1-4) got the win for one inning in relief of Buehrle while Feliz (0-1) was tagged with the loss. Down 5-2, the Rangers had rallied for three runs in the sixth to tie the score as the bottom of the order loaded the bases. The Buehrle balk and a Daniel Robertson two-RBI single made it a whole new ball game. "Thatll make the bloopers," said Gibbons. Buehrle, who called it "embarrassing," said he went down because his cleat caught. He would have tried to throw the ball at the plate but was more concerned about not hurting himself going down. "Obviously I havent been as sharp as I want to be the last times Ive been out. It hasnt been really that good. I dont know. Just a couple of those days. Dont want to have them but theyre going to come in the course of season and (I) just need to turn it around." Robertson, filling in for the injured Alex Rios, drove in a career-high four runs for the Rangers. "Every time we scored, we just couldnt stop them," sad Texas manager Ron Washington, whose teams winning percentage slipped under .400 to .398. "Weve got to have some shutdown innings. We just couldnt get any shutdown innings after we put runs on the board. Thats the one thing we certainly have to work hard to correct." Earlier, catcher Dioner Navarro homered for Toronto and Reyes drove in two runs with a bases-loaded single in a game that saw both teams with plenty of chances to keep the scoreboard turning over. It was a no-decision for Buehrle, who has posted an 0-5 record in his last eight outings to drop his record to 10-6. And this after reaching the 10-win mark faster than ever before in his career. He gave up five runs on eight hits with five strikeouts and three walks in his 449th consecutive start, the longest active streak in the majors. The left-hander, who came into the game with a 13-5 record in 20 career starts against the Rangers, made life difficult for himself in the second, third and fourth by putting the leadoff man on with two walks and a single. But, two runs aside in the third, he cleaned up after himself until stepping into it again in the sixth. Despite winning the series opener 5-1 Friday, the Rangers have been in a free fall for a while. They came into the game having lost nine of 10 and are now 2-14 in July, the fewest wins for any team in the majors. However you stack them, the numbers are shocking. Texas has lost 16 of 18 and 24 of 28. One explanation: Texas has used more players (51) and pitchers (30) than any other team this season. And the Rangers lead the majors in use of the disabled list (21) and current players on the DL (14). That explains the 15 rookies on the active roster. Texas starter Nick Tepesch lasted 4 1/3 innings, giving up five runs on nine hits. The Jays open a four-game homestand against the Boston Red Sox on Monday. Texas heads to New York to play the Yankees.
