After losing to the Utah Jazz 104-92 on Saturday night, the Sixers have dropped 16 straight, including a franchise-record 13 in a row at home (see story).

Here are a few other numbers and notes from the latest loss:

• The losing streak is the second-longest in franchise history. The Sixers last lost 15 in a row in 1992-93. The 13 straight losses at home is a single-season record for consecutive defeats and ties a mark set from the end of the 1971-72 season and into 1972-73.

• Tony Wroten came off the bench to score a career-high 30 points on 12 for 15 shooting. He took two shots outside of the paint -- both misses -- and became the first Sixer to score 30 points and shoot 80 percent since Allen Iverson did it against Dallas on Feb. 29, 2000.

• The Sixers have had 10 30-plus scoring games this season. That’s the most in a season since the team had 16 30-plus scoring games in 2006-07.

• Michael Carter-Williams scored a season-low four points on 2 for 13 shooting. However, the rookie had nine assists and a team-high seven rebounds.

• Thad Young scored 18 points in 39 minutes, but had zero rebounds. Only one other frontcourt player (Wesley Johnson of Portland) has played as many minutes without grabbing a single rebound in a game this season.

• The Sixers went 5 for 22 from three-point range against Utah. They have not hit more than a third of their three-point attempts in the last eight games and are shooting just 25.1 percent from long range over that span.

• The Sixers lost despite notching 13 steals and forcing 20 turnovers. They are averaging 11.6 steals over the last eight games and have forced at least 20 turnovers in five of the last eight games.

• Utah swept the season series against the Sixers for the first time since 2008-09.
