The Philadelphia 76ers have ended their 26-match losing streak as they overcame the Detroit Pistons with a monumental 123-98 win at the Wells Fargo Center on Saturday night.
The victory has ensured that the 76ers are now tied on the longest run of defeats in the history of the game, remaining level with the Cleveland Cavaliers, who went barren for 26 encounters in the 2010-2011 season.
Jamal Crawford was also impressive having scored 14 of his 22 points in the second half, as the Clippers got past an early exit for All-Star Blake Griffin away from home at the Toyota Center.
The Dallas Mavericks now hold a home winning streak of 20 games against the Sacramento Kings after they ran out 103-100 winners at the American Airlines Center.
The Mavs were led by no fewer than six players who got into double figures, with Dirk Nowitzki the pick of the bunch, scoring 19 points for Dallas.
The Miami Heat reached the 50-win mark as they kept the Milwaukee Bucks to a disappointingly low score with a 88-67 victory at the BMO Harris Bradley Center, with Chris Bosh among five players to reach double figures.
