Two more losses for the 76ers on Thursday could see them tie the NBA record of consecutive losses [AFP]

Austin Daye had 22 points and Tim Duncan added 19 as the San Antonio Spurs earned their 14th straight win with a 113-91 victory that sent the Philadelphia 76ers to their 25th consecutive loss.

Philadelphia will face Houston on Thursday with the dubious distinction of being a loss shy of tying the NBA record for consecutive losses set by the Cleveland Cavaliers in 2010-11.

Elsewhere, Miami's LeBron James scored 32 points, including a layup with 11.4 seconds left, and Chris Bosh capped his 30th birthday by blocking Damian Lillard's layup in the final moments as the Heat escaped with a 93-91 win over the Portland Trail Blazers.

At Charlotte, North Carolina, James Harden scored 31 points and Dwight Howard had a double-double in his return to the court as the Houston Rockets defeated the Bobcats 100-89 for their fourth straight win.

Chicago Bulls brushed off a poor offensive first half to rally past the Indiana Pacers 89-77, while Kevin Durant had 27 points and eight assists to help the Oklahoma City Thunder defeat the Denver Nuggets 117-96.

The Memphis Grizzles downed the Minnesota Timberwolves 109-92, the New Orleans Pelicans beat the Brooklyn Nets 109-104 in overtime, the Detroit Pistons defeated the Utah Jazz 114-94 and the Los Angeles Clippers were 106-98 winners over the Milwaukee Bucks.
