USA TODAY Sports

The Philadelphia 76ers have seen things crash around them, losing five games in a row. What is their next chance to snap this streak?

The Philadelphia 76ers have struggled mightily as of late, dropping five games in a row including two games this week. On Tuesday, the Sixers lost to the Dallas Mavericks, 107-100, followed by a loss on Wednesday to the Houston Rockets, 125-103.

In Tuesday's loss, the Sixers allowed Mavericks guard O.J. Mayo and center Chris Kaman to score 26 and 20 points respectively, where the only player to break 20 points for the Sixers was reserve forward Dorell Wright with 25. Spencer Hawes added 18 off the bench and forward Evan Turner poured in 17 points.

On Wednesday, the Sixers could not overcome 33 points by Rockets guard James Harden. Center Omer Asik scored 17 points and grabbed 15 rebounds in the game. Four other Rockets players scored in double figures while the team shot 56 percent from the field including 11 three-pointers. The Sixers were paced by guard Nick Young with 21 points off the bench. Wright added 20 and Thaddeus Young scored 17.

The Sixers have a chance to snap their current losing streak on Friday night as they host the Atlanta Hawks. The game is scheduled for a 7 p.m. tip off and the game will be broadcast on CSN Philadelphia and radio coverage will be provided by 97.5 The Fanatic.
