(SportsNetwork.com) - The only thing separating the Philadelphia 76ers from tying the franchise record for consecutive losses to start a season is the Brooklyn Nets.
The two will meet Wednesday night at the Wells Fargo Center.
The Sixers' losing streak reached 14 Monday night at home against the Portland Trail Blazers. Philly led at the half, but LaMarcus Aldridge took over and the Blazers left with a 114-104 victory.
Aldridge and Damian Lillard scored 15 and 10 points, respectively, in the third to help Portland grab an 89-80 advantage. The Blazers outscored Philadelphia by a 39-28 margin in the period.
Michael Carter-Williams ended with 24 points and seven rebounds for the Sixers. Henry Sims and Tony Wroten had 22 and 20 points, respectively, for the Sixers, who shot 50 percent from the field, but went 0-for-8 from beyond the arc.
The Sixers can tie the 1972-73 team that opened the season with an 0-15 mark. That team more than 40 years ago went on to have the NBA's worst record ever of 9-73.
Philly is four losses away from tying the Nets' record for worst start. That Nets team went 0-18 to kick off the 2009-10 season.
"Nobody is rolling over or pointing fingers," 76ers coach Brett Brown said. "This locker room is great."
The Sixers will finish off a four-game homestand with the Dallas Mavericks on Friday and the world champion San Antonio Spurs on Monday.
Wednesday's game will complete a three-game trip for the Nets. They defeated the Oklahoma City Thunder on Friday, then fell to the Spurs, 99-87, on Saturday.
"You just keep battling, getting better, competing," said Nets head coach Lionel Hollins. "There's no numbers, I just want us to go forward."
Deron Williams scored 24 points and Mirza Teletovic, who started in place of a resting Kevin Garnett, went for 22 and eight boards as Brooklyn fell for the sixth time in seven games.
The Spurs led by seven after the first quarter, then created more distance by scoring the first 11 points of the second. Brooklyn never led, though they were within eight following Joe Johnson's floater with 5:47 left in the game.
San Antonio closed it out late for the 12-point win.
The Nets scored 100 points just once in their last six games and that came in a triple-overtime marathon versus the Milwaukee Bucks. Brooklyn doesn't leave the area over its next five games with one road game against the New York Knicks.
The Nets took three of four from the Sixers last season and are 7-3 in their last 10 in the series. Philadelphia has won two of the last three at home against Brooklyn.
