Brandon Bass leads Boston Celtics past winless Philadelphia Sixers
PHILADELPHIA (AP) - Brandon Bass scored 23 points, Jared Sullinger added 22 and the Boston Celtics sent Philadelphia to its 11th straight loss to start the season with a 101-90 victory over the 76ers on Wednesday night.
Rajon Rondo had 13 assists with nine points, and Jeff Green chipped in 11 points for the Celtics (4-6), who snapped a three-game losing streak.
Tony Wroten led five 76ers in double figures with 21 points. Philadelphia (0-11) is seven defeats from tying the 2009-10 Nets for the worst start in NBA history.
Boston, which entered third-worst in the league at 109.4 points allowed per game, was even worse on its recent skid (116.3). But the Celtics held the struggling 76ers to a season low in points.
