INDIANAPOLIS -- After Philadelphias latest loss gave the 76ers their longest skid in franchise history, coach Brett Brown insisted he doesnt dwell on the streak. Lance Stephenson scored 25 points and the Indiana Pacers rallied from an early deficit to beat Philadelphia 99-90 on Monday night, handing the 76ers their 21st straight loss. "Its hard because of a competitive thing, but in relation to worrying about a record, we dont live in that world," Brown said. "I dont bring that to that locker room once. I dont mention it to them, I dont think about it often -- (but) you cant help but be aware of it." Philadelphia eclipsed its previous mark of 20 straight losses during the 1972-73 season, when it finished 9-73. The Sixers tied the Detroit Pistons for the sixth-longest losing streak in NBA history. The Pistons lost 21 straight bridging the 1979-80 and 1980-81 seasons. The Cleveland Cavaliers set the NBA record for consecutive losses with 26, in the 2010-11 season. "We move on. Were on a different path right now," Brown said. "We started this season with a plan, we took it to a whole other level to reconfirm our plan on trade deadline night." Paul George had 24 points for the Pacers, who staked the Sixers to a 15-6 lead before taking the lead and pulling away. George Hill scored 11 points, Ian Mahinmi had 10 and David West grabbed 12 rebounds. Thaddeus Young had 23 points to lead the Sixers, who havent won since Jan. 29 at Boston. Evan Turner, now with the Pacers, hit the game-winning shot in that 95-94 win by Philadelphia. Turner, traded to Indiana with Lavoy Allen on Feb. 20 for Danny Granger and a draft pick, had four points and seven rebounds against his former team on Monday. Hollis Thompson and Tony Wroten each scored 17, Michael Carter-Williams had 15 points and 13 rebounds, and Henry Sims had nine points and 11 rebounds for the Sixers, who next host Chicago on Wednesday night. Philadelphia built its 15-6 first-quarter lead by shooting 6 for 9 from the field, including 3 for 4 on 3-pointers, while the Pacers were 3 for 9 in the same stretch. "(These teams) are the ones that pose the biggest threat, because for us, weve got to get motivated," Indianas Paul George said. "All these games are huge for us because every game counts." But Indiana closed the quarter on a 15-9 run to pull to 24-21. Mahinmis rebound and dunk off a miss by Luis Scola miss gave the Pacers a 27-26 lead with 9:50 to play in the second quarter, their first lead since 2-0. The second quarter saw seven lead changes and seven ties, the last on a jumper by Carter-Williams that tied the score at 48 with 2:11 to play. Hill hit a 3-pointer to put Indiana up 51-48, George dunked, then hit a free throw after a technical on Byron Mullens for kicking the ball after he fouled Stephenson. Stephenson hit both free throws to give the Pacers a 56-48 lead. Indiana led 58-50 at halftime. But the Pacers, who shot 13 for 21 in the second quarter, went cold in the third. Indiana was just 6 of 27 from the floor in the third, giving Philadelphia a chance. "It was a tough game. We just didnt have a whole lot of pop," Indianas David West said. "They came out in the third quarter with more energy." Young pulled the Sixers to 62-61 on a 3-pointer, then put them ahead 63-62 on a fadeaway jumper. West hit a free throw to tie the game, but a lane violation wiped out his second attempt. Mahinmi broke the tie with two free throws with 3:39 to play in the third. Indianas lead was 67-65 when George and Hill hit consecutive 3-pointers to extend the lead to eight. Young scored to make it 73-67, but West put back a miss by Hill to take a 75-67 lead into the fourth quarter. The Sixers closed to 88-85, but Carter-Williams missed a potential tying 3-pointer with 2:15 remaining. Hill answered on the other end with a 3-pointer to give Indiana a 91-85 lead with 1:56 to play. Hill then stole Carter-Williams pass and Roy Hibbert completed a three-point play at the other end for a 94-85 advantage. "We were there," Brown said. "I think its a great example and learning lesson for Michael Carter-Williams, leaving the corner, George Hill hits a 3, its a 3-point game." NOTES: Pacers C Andrew Bynum (knee) sat out the game and is day-to-day. Pacers coach Frank Vogel said Bynum had an MRI on Monday. "Well know more in the next couple of days," Vogel said before the game. Bynum has played in just two games since the Pacers signed him on Feb. 1. ... The Pacers were also without backup PG C.J. Watson (hamstring). ... James Anderson (thigh) did not travel with the Sixers after suffering a thigh bruise in Saturdays loss to Memphis. He had been the only Sixer to appear in every game this season. Cheap Tigers Jerseys Authentic . -- C.J. Wilson parked his car and laughed while signing autographs for faceless fans who handed bats, balls and cards to the pitcher from the other side of a brick wall. Cheap MLB Jerseys . So it was understandable if he was a little shaky early in his return to the Texas Rangers rotation. He spent most of the outing searching for his best stuff, but still managed to shut down the struggling Minnesota Twins offence. http://www.cheaptigersjerseys.com/?tag= ... e-jersey.J.

Lions. The B.C. offence sputtered and the defence showed little sinew in losing last weeks season-opening game 44-32 to the Calgary Stampeders. Its a performance the Lions dont want to repeat when they host the defending Grey Cup champion Toronto Argonauts Thursday night at B.C. Place Stadium. You can watch the game on TSN and TSN Mobile TV and listen on TSN Radio 1050 beginning at 10pm et/7pm pt. "We dont want to be the team we were last week," quarterback Travis Lulay said Wednesday after the Lions held a light workout. "You want to get better quick." Hard-hitting linebacker Adam Bighill said the Lions have something to prove. "We have a sense of urgency," said Bighill. "We want to come out here and prove we are a lot better than we showed. "I think its great we faced adversity Week One because it sets us on the right path for the rest of the season. Its better now than to be doubting yourself in Week 15." Toronto opened the season with a nail-biting 39-34 win over the Hamilton Tiger-Cats. The Argonauts have not won in Vancouver since 2002. When Argos coach Scott Milanovich looks at the Lions he sees a reflection of his own squad. "I look at them in a similar way I look at our team," said the 2012 coach of the year. "They have a great quarterback, they have a running back that can hit the home run, they are well coached. "They are just a good football team. I know they will be ready to play." The game also marks the return of Khalif Mitchell to Vancouver. The volatile defensive lineman spent three seasons with the Lions before being traded to the Argos over the winter. On the field the six-foot-five, 315-pound Mitchell is a dominating player who sometimes pushes the envelope with his physical play. Last season he was suspended for two games for hyper-extending the arm of Edmonton offensive lineman Simeon Rottier. Later he was fined and suspended again for making throat-slashing gestures. Off the field Mitchell can be eccentric in his views and unpredictable with his comments. He was suspended by the Lions for sending racially insensitive tweets. Mitchell initially was unhappy with being traded but has come to terms with the move. "Im at peace with myself," he told a group of reporters. "Coming out here, being able to play B.C., coming back regardless of all the stuff that may have happened before and the trade -- the tweet, the arm, all those things all combined -- just coming back and being able to settle down and have a clear conscious and be able to play. "There are no grudges, no hard feelings. I dont have any negative emotions. Ive just 100 per cent bought into whats going on with our team in Toronto and making sure we become the besst team we can be.dddddddddddd" Mitchell will put extra pressure on a Lions offensive line that remains a work in progress. An injury to veteran Angus Reid has resulted in second-year player Matt Norman being moved to centre, a position he didnt play during his four years as an offensive lineman at the University of Western Ontario. At right guard is 22-year-old rookie Kirby Fabien, a first-round draft pick in 2012. Left guard Patrick Kabongo faced Mitchell in practise last season and knows what to expect come game time. "Khalif is a good player, hes a dominant player," said Kabongo. "We are going to block him the best we can." Head coach Mike Benevides said the Lions have not made any special preparations to deal with Mitchell. "He is one of those things from a preparation point of view, our offence has got to be alert of where hes at and the kind of things they do from a defensive perspective," said the second-year head coach. "We have to be prepared that way but I havent made mention of it. They know him well and hes a friend of many. We know what kind of person he is. Its not something to really think or talk about much. Im sure he will be excited to see us and we will be excited to see him." One of the keys to a Lions victory will be getting more use from running back Andrew Harris, who had just five carries for 20 yards last week. "We need to establish a little better running game and first-down production," said Lulay. "Too many times (against Calgary) we were in second-and-13, second-and-15. "Thats tough when you play a good defence. Its tough to sustain drives." Canadian wide receiver Shawn Gore, who was limping at practice this week, will play. Veteran kicker Paul McCallum, who missed last weeks game with a groin injury, will be a game-time decision. If McCallum cant play Hugh ONeill will handle both the punting and placekicking. B.C. defensive tackle Keron Williams said a win over Toronto will help erase last weeks frustration. "In our eyes its definitely a must-win," said Williams. "Last week our mind set was nowhere near where it needed to be. "We have a sense of urgency. We have pride. We know whats at stake." The Lions started the 2011 season losing their first five games and were 1-6 but the team regrouped and went on to win the Grey Cup. Veteran offensive tackle Ben Archibald wants to detour around that rough road. "As teammates we said we dont want to do that again," said Archibald. "We ended up where we wanted to be, but it wasnt worth it. "That was an awful six weeks of our lives. It was nasty. We dont want to get to that point when theres no need to. We feel like this is a game we want to win. We want to prove to the country who we are. Last week wasnt a true indication of that."
