The Philadelphia 76ers were again poised to end their losing streak. The Memphis Grizzlies used a late fourth-quarter rally to erase a Sixers lead and capture a 92-84 victory on Sunday, sending Philadelphia to its NBA-record 18th straight loss to start the season. The loss matched the 0-18 opening by the 2009-10 New Jersey Nets, and marked the 28th consecutive defeat for the Sixers – the longest such streak ever in the four major United State sports.

Kobe Bryant has decided to retire after this season, ending his 20-year career with the Los Angeles Lakers. Bryant went straight from high school in suburban Philadelphia to the Lakers in 1996, and he earned five championship rings and 17 All-Star selections during two decades with the franchise – the longest tenure with one team in NBA history. The top scorer in Lakers history also won two Olympic gold medals.

Eric Bledsoe wasted little time atoning for a missed free throw with just 12.3 seconds to go. After sinking his second shot to push the Suns’ lead to three, he hustled to block Luis Scola’s 3-point attempt that would have tied the game, and grabbed the resulting rebound. Bledsoe then coolly sank the free throws after being fouled by Kyle Lowry to ice away a 107-102 win over the Toronto Raptors on Sunday night to snap Phoenix’s four-game losing streak.
