PHILADELPHIA -- Desperate to see a victory again,
Philadelphia fans wouldnt even wait for the end, standing
to cheer as time was running out in the third quarter.
Miyaichi-Futbol-Jersey.html">Ryo Miyaichi . By then
it was clear: The 76ers were going to win for the first
time in two months, and they were going to do it with
ease. The 76ers snapped their NBA record-tying, 26-game
losing streak, routing the Detroit Pistons 123-98 on
Saturday night to avoid establishing the longest skid in
U.S. major pro sports history. "Its not something I want
to be a part of," 76ers guard Michael Carter-Williams
said, "so its great that we got this win." Carter-
Williams and Thaddeus Young each scored 21 points for the
76ers, who won for the first time since beating Boston
exactly two months ago and did it impressively, leading
by as much as 32 points. They also ended an 18-game home
losing streak, which was one shy of another NBA record.
Beaten badly a number of times during their skid, the
76ers got to experience life on the other side, ringing
up a season-high 70 points in the first half. Their 26
straight losses equaled the 2010-11 Cleveland Cavaliers
and also the NFLs Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who dropped 26
straight from Sept. 12, 1976-Dec. 4, 1977. "We were just
happy to get a win," Young said. "I dont think it was for
the streak or anything like that, we just wanted to go
out there and win a basketball game and continue to just
play." Henry Sims added 16 points for the Sixers, who
hadnt won before their home crowd since beating Charlotte
on Jan. 15. Fans in the crowd of 17,438 were into it from
the start and grew louder throughout, standing and
cheering in the final seconds of the third and then
getting up again to deliver a standing ovation for the
final 45 seconds of the game. Greg Monroe had 20 points
and 10 rebounds for the Pistons, who lost for the 11th
time in 13 games. Blown out a night earlier by Miami,
they made the 76ers look as good as the Heat with a
sloppy effort that included 18 turnovers, many after
starting point guard Brandon Jennings was ejected in the
first quarter. "They came out and competed tonight. They
wanted it more than we did," Pistons guard Rodney Stuckey
said. The Sixers were expected to be among the NBAs worst
teams, though they briefly fooled everyone when they
opened the season by beating Miami and Chicago during a
3-0 start. But they look nothing like that team now,
having traded three of their top players before Februarys
trade deadline and replacing them with what coach Brett
Brown said is the youngest team in league history, one
that has been unprepared or perhaps just unqualified to
win NBA games. There is young talent on the roster, with
Carter-Williams the possible Rookie of the Year and
Nerlens Noel, still out recovering from a torn ACL, also
a lottery pick in last years draft. Brown doesnt question
the Sixers plans or his decision to leave San Antonio to
come coach here, insisting the team was headed in the
right direction and that all this losing "will be a
distant memory in September." "Our judgment day isnt
today and it wont be tomorrow," Brown said before the
game. "Were on a three to five-year plan." The present
was finally fun on Saturday. The 76ers opened a 10-point
lead after one, capitalizing on some free throws when
Jennings picked up two technical fouls arguing a call
that wasnt even against him and was ejected with 1:18
left. A 9-0 run made it 55-38 with about 5 1/2 minutes
left in the half, and when Detroit crept within 10 with
1:32 remaining, Philadelphia closed with another 9-0
spurt to open a 70-51 cushion at the break. The 76ers
extended it to 32 late in the third, and Brown pulled his
five starters together with 5:13 left and a 30-point
bulge. There was no visible celebration, though there was
surely some relief. "There was some emotion," Carter-
Williams said. "Of course we were happy to win again, its
a great thing to be on the winning side." Notes: The

-- The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are making a case for saving
coach Greg Schianos job with a strong second-half
turnaround. ENGLEWOOD, Colo. -- Denver Broncos owner Pat
Bowlen is giving up control of the team because of
Alzheimers disease. The 70-year-old Bowlen will no longer
be a part of the clubs daily operations, the Broncos
announced Wednesday. Team President Joe Ellis is adding
the title of chief executive officer and will have final
say on all matters. The Broncos say the ownership of the
franchise is held in a trust Bowlen set up more than a
decade ago in hopes that one of his seven children will
one day run the team. "As many in the Denver community
and around the National Football League have speculated,
my husband, Pat, has very bravely and quietly battled
Alzheimers disease for the last few years. He has elected
to keep his condition private because he has strongly
believed, and often said, Its not about me," Annabel
Bowlen said in a statement Wednesday. "Pat has always
wanted the focus to be solely on the Denver Broncos and
the great fans who have supported this team with such
passion during his 30 years as owner. My family is deeply
saddened that Pats health no longer allows him to oversee
the Broncos, which has led to this public acknowledgment
of such a personal health condition," she added.
"Alzheimers has taken so much from Pat, but it will never
take away his love for the Denver Broncos and his sincere
appreciation for the fans." The team issued a statement
offering "our full support, compassion and respect to Mr.
B, who has faced Alzheimers disease with such dignity and
strength." Business is expected to go on as usual at
Broncos headquarters. Bowlen had reduced his public
appearances in recent years, although he was still a
fixture at the teams Dove Valley complex and at all of
its games. After acknowledging in 2009 that he suffered
short-term memory loss, he stepped back from day-to-day
operations in 2011 when he promoted Ellis to president.
For the first time this off-season, Ellis represented the
Broncos at the annual owners meetings. Under Bowlens
guidance, the Broncoos won six AFC titles and two Super
Mertesacker-Futbol-Jersey.html">Per Mertesacker
. At 307-203-1, Bowlen and New York Giants
founder Tim Mara are the only three-decade owners in pro
football history to win 60 per cent of their games. The
Broncos 186 home victories are the most in the NFL since
he bought the team in 1984, when John Elway was his
quarterback, not his front office chief, and the Broncos
five losing seasons during those 30 years are the fewest
in the league over that span. Elway, now the teams
general manager, once said Bowlens competitive nature as
a triathlete when he was younger translated into his
business life "and how he ran the Broncos." Bowlen was
known as much for his humility as his competitive fire,
doing his best to stay out of the spotlight even as he
built a winning culture and a fan base that extends
throughout the Rocky Mountain region. His style endeared
him to employees and players alike. "Words cant express
the love, respect & gratitude I have for Pat Bowlen. He
set the standard for team ownership. Keep Mr. B in your
prayers," former Broncos receiver Ed McCaffrey tweeted.
When Bowlen received the Mizel Institutes 2013 Community
Enrichment Award, Hall of Famer Shannon Sharpe said: "I
would be hard-pressed to believe that theres an owner
that cares more about his city, about his state, about
his players than Mr. Bowlen does." Hall of Famer Gary
Zimmerman said he realized Bowlen was a different type of
owner when he signed up for a turkey his first
Thanksgiving in Denver, thinking it was all a joke. "Then
I come into the locker room and theres Pat sticking
turkeys into our lockers," Zimmerman recounted. During
Peyton Mannings whirlwind free agency tour in 2012,
Zimmerman said, he knew any other teams pursuing the
four-time MVP were just wasting their time. "I knew hed
be a Bronco before he did," Zimmerman said, "because once
he visited here and met with Mr. Bowlen, I knew there was
no way he could go anywhere else."
