PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- The 76ers have fumbled their way toward the wrong kind of NBA history.

Amare Stoudemire had 22 points and 10 rebounds, Carmelo Anthony scored 21 and the New York Knicks won their eighth straight game, 93-92 over Philadelphia on Friday night, sending the Sixers to their 23rd straight loss.

The Sixers have matched the Vancouver Grizzlies (1995-96), Denver Nuggets (1997-98) and Charlotte Bobcats (2011-12) for the second-longest single-season losing streak in NBA history.

The Cleveland Cavaliers set the record of 26 consecutive losses in the 2010-11 season.

The Sixers (15-54) would have to pull off an upset to avoid tying the record.

Up next, three straight road games at Chicago, San Antonio and Houston. If the Sixers lose all three, the potential record 27th loss would come March 29 vs. Detroit.
