HOUSTON (AP) -- The Philadelphia 76ers tied the NBA record with their 26th straight loss Thursday night, as James Harden's triple-double led the Houston Rockets to a 120-98 victory.

Harden had 26 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists in three quarters for his second career triple-double as Houston picked up its fifth straight victory.

The 76ers (15-57) stuck around early before a big second-quarter run allowed the Rockets to pull away and roll to the win.

Philadelphia matched the 2010-11 Cleveland Cavaliers for the NBA's worst skid and can set the record at home against Detroit on Saturday.

James Anderson led the Sixers with 30 points and made six 3-pointers.
