The Sixers lost for the 13th time in a row on Saturday with a 122-103 defeat to the Wizards at the Wells Fargo Center (see story). Here are a few facts and figures about the game …

• The Sixers have allowed at least 100 points in 13 straight games. That’s the longest streak of 100-point games against the Sixers since 1989 when opponents lit it up for at least 100 in 14 straight.

• Washington shot 50.6 percent from the floor. The Sixers are 1-14 when the opposition shoots at least 50 percent this season. They went 1-18 last year when allowing the opponents to shoot 50 percent.

• Tony Wroten led the Sixers with 19 points off the bench. Wroten is averaging 18.5 points over his last four games.

• Thad Young added 17 points and has at least 17 points and three steals in his last four games. 

• A game after allowing the opposition to get three players with double-doubles, only two Wizards notched them on Saturday. Marcin Gortat had 13 points and 14 rebounds for his sixth straight double-double and John Wall had 17 points and a career-high 16 assists for his 22nd double-double of the season.

• Newcomer Eric Maynor scored 13 points off the bench. In his two games with the Sixers, Maynor has 26 points on 10-for-13 shooting.

• Trevor Ariza led all scorers with 40 points on 14-for-23 shooting, including 8 for 12 from three-point range. Ariza scored 24 points in the first quarter, which is the second-highest amount of points scored against the Sixers in a quarter this season. On Dec. 16 Joe Johnson scored 29 in the third quarter in Brooklyn.

Ariza also had the second-highest scoring total in a game against the Sixers this season. Aaron Afflalo scored 43 in the Sixers’ double-OT victory over the Magic on Dec. 3.

• The Wizards got a couple of floor records on Saturday night. Ariza’s 24 points in the first quarter is the most in a quarter by an opponent and Wall’s eight first-quarter assists is a record for opponents in the opening frame.

Meanwhile, the 74 points in the first half for the Wizards is a Wells Fargo Center record for any half.
