PHILADELPHIA -- Down and out or down to the wire, the 76ers are freefalling toward NBA history. Jonathan Isaac White Jersey . 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. Jonathan Isaac Jersey .com) - P.K. Subbans power-play goal 4:08 into overtime sent the Montreal Canadiens into the All-Star break with a 2-1 win over the Nashville Predators on Tuesday. Jonathan Isaac Blue Jersey . It was just time for him to make a big play. Nicolas Batum had 20 points and 10 rebounds, Wesley Matthews scored 18 points, and the Trail Blazers overcame poor-shooting nights by two of their best players in a 94-90 victory over the New York Knicks on Wednesday. http://www.magicteamofficial.com/Jonathan-Isaac-Magic-Jersey/ . Bayern led second-place Leverkusen by 10 points with a game in hand, while Dortmund was another four points off the pace. Freiburg midfielder Felix Klaus scored in the last minute as his side twice came from behind to climb provisionally out of the relegation zone.It came from a counter attack and when the ball was crossed into the box with the perfect amount of weight behind it, he knew he had a chance. He drifted off the back of the centre-back, met the ball in the air, and powerfully headed his team into an unassailable 4-2 lead. Jurgen Klinsmann had arrived in the Premier League. What happened next would become one of the most iconic moments in the Premier Leagues history as the German international, along with his Tottenham teammates, celebrated the goal by diving onto the floor, as a way of mocking the stories about the striker being a notorious diver. Klinsmanns performance at Sheffield Wednesday, in the sunshine, on the opening day of the 1994-95 season is still today known as one of the leagues all-time great debuts. This past Saturday in the Premier League wasnt the opening day of the season but it certainly felt like it with many new players making their debuts, fresh off an international break, after the transfer window finally closed. Much like Klinsmanns signing in the mid 90s, the arrival of Mesut Ozil in England has similarly captured the attention of the entire country. Arsenal fans are not alone in the excitement of having this player in the Premier League. On August 20th, 1994, while Klinsmann was diving for fun, Ozil was a shy 5-year-old kid living in a relatively poor suburb of Gelsenkirchen, Germany. Nineteen years later, his debut drew parallels to the man who now coaches the United States. A number of great players have arrived in the Premier League when they are past their best, while others have reached elite level while playing in England. Very few have been at a world class standard when they arrived, generating a real buzz about their debut. Klinsmann was one and Ozil is another. Like his countryman, Ozil opened his Premier League career away from North London when he travelled to Sunderland on Saturday and, like Klinsmann, Ozil ended his day with a very good performance and a standout moment for everyone to remember. With Tomas Rosicky and Santi Cazorla missing through injury, Ozil was placed in the side with Jack Wilshere, Aaron Ramsey, Mathieu Flamini and Theo Walcott as the five to play behind striker Olivier Giroud. Arsenal are very much a 4-3-3 side, with an attacking member of the midfield three often pushing further up to make it a 4-2-3-1 hybrid. However, with the intelligent Ozil in the side, along with a real lack of pressing from Sunderlands 4-4-2, Arsenal played a different shape than we are used to seeing from them (more on that shortly). To understand Arsenals different identity on Saturday, you just had to watch Ozil for the opening 10 minutes of the game, as he put on a clinic on just how to play as a creator behind a striker. Everything Ozil does well was on show in the first 10 minutes. His first two touches of the ball came in the opponents half but deep towards the right wing and immediately his ability to drift deep had an effect on Sunderlands positioning as a back four, with them slowly moving higher up the pitch. Already Arsenal had them where they wanted them and Ozils movement towards the right flank was on show again in the seventh minute when Walcott, after connecting well with right back Carl Jenkinson, needed an outlet as he drove into Sunderlands final third. There was Ozil, moving across the pitch as he does so splendidly, to receive the ball in space and continue the attack. Keeping the ball and finding space was the theme of Arsenals early attacks and with Ozil again driffting deep centrally, Wilshere picked up the ball on the left and used the German to play a quick one-two that opened up an alley that allowed him to drive deep into Sunderland territory. Jonathan Isaac Authentic Jersey. . Much of Arsenals success this season has come from counter attacks deep in their own half. Their third goal at Fulham was a perfect example of this when all eleven players were in their half before an attack, led by Giroud, and finished by Lukas Podolski, exploded into the opponents half. In the eighth minute at Sunderland, Giroud again came deep to win a header that he sent towards Ozil, who allowed the ball to come across him before running across the halfway line and starting another attack. Sunderlands back four, petrified of the space between them and their midfield, again played high and almost got found out. Two minutes later they were exposed again. Ozil, in the centre circle, facing his own goal, received the ball and immediately centre-back Mobido Diakite charged into his back to pressure him. Ozil calmly slotted the ball back to Kieran Gibbs, and before the left back even received the ball, charged into space on the left behind Sunderlands right back Ondrej Celustka. Gibbs saw Ozils run and had time to set the ball up for his left foot before swinging it towards a sprinting Ozil, who now had the Sunderland defence in trouble. With Diakite out of position, Valentin Roberge was forced to close down the German, leaving space in the middle for Giroud to run into. Ozil took a brilliant touch, bringing the ball down on to the ground, had a quick glance across to see his strikers positioning, and then sent a perfect cross over for Giroud to finish it off. 1-0 Arsenal. Ossist number one of many for the 42 million pound man. Watch the match highlights here. It had taken just 10 minutes and Ozil had done damage on the right, in the centre and over on the left. With Sunderland playing with ineffective wingers, Arsenal went on to dominate possession in a 3-1 win and simply using their full backs, with Walcott on the right, to provide width. Flamini played as a solo pivot once Arsenal attacked, playing more passes to Ozil than any other player, giving Ramsey, Wilshere and Ozil the freedom to play very close to Giroud centrally. They were far from narrow, though, and actually had much more fluency in attack with the constant interchanging between the trio. (photo: fourfourtwo.com - Click For Larger Image) A true treasurer of the ball, you can see just how effective Ozil is with his vertical and lateral movement, putting together an outstanding passing efficiency from left to right in the two attacking areas for Arsenal. It was only one game, admittedly against an average side, but already it is clear that Ozil is exactly what Arsene Wenger needs as his side evolve into an impressive team on counter attacks from their own half and quick transitions. (photo: fourfourtwo.com - Click For Larger Image) Ozil is the ultimate space invader who will terrify defenders with his movement, finding space for himself like no other, and creating space for teammates to benefit from. Klinsmanns header and dive to celebrate made him an instant box office superstar in England, someone the public wanted to go and watch live. The ultimate space invader is going down the same path. Fitting, in 2013, its no longer about seeing just a pure goal scorer. It appears the IQ levels might just be rising off the field; Ozils arrival in the Premier League certainly guarantees it is rising on it.
