The Los Angeles Clippers avoided an NBA record they didn't want last night as Ken Norman scored 32 points and Gary Grant made key plays down the stretch in a 114-111 victory over the Houston Rockets. The Clippers ended a 19-game losing streak, one shy of the NBA single- season record set by the 1972-73 Philadelphia 76ers. Los Angeles took the lead midway through the final quarter, then barely held on as the Rockets' Akeem Olajuwon, who had 30 points, fouled out with 1 minute, 27 seconds remaining and with Houston down by 111-109.

NEW YORK - The New Orleans Hornets, recently sold by the NBA to Saints owner Tom Benson, won the NBA's draft lottery and the No. 1 pick overall. The Hornets, after a difficult season in which they traded All-Star Chris Paul, have a shot to add another superstar, with Kentucky freshman Anthony Davis considered the best player available. The Hornets moved up from the fourth spot to earn the pick. The Charlotte Bobcats, after the worst season in NBA history, fell to the No. 2 pick.

IT STARTS bad and ends even worse. But the 76ers' 66-game schedule, released last night, is very favorable in between. The Sixers will open with five straight road games, beginning in Portland on Monday, Dec. 26. They will then play at Phoenix, Utah, Golden State and New Orleans before hosting the Detroit Pistons in the home opener on Friday, Jan. 6. From that point, the Sixers will play 18 of 22 games at the Wells Fargo Center. During that time, they will host Chicago on Feb. 1, Miami on Feb. 3, the Los Angeles Lakers on Feb. 6 and San Antonio on Feb. 8 before ending the run with the Los Angeles Clippers on Feb. 10. Twice during the season, they will play three games in 3 days.

WHEN HIS NAME is announced at the Wells Fargo Center these days, there is mostly an appreciative applause, at first. Fans realize that Elton Brand, signed to a 5-year, $80 million contract here in the summer of 2008 and ultimately bought out (for $18 million) 4 years later, played as hard as he could each minute on the floor here and carried himself as a true professional throughout. He was a big reason the team came within one game of advancing to the Eastern Conference Finals in 2012, losing to Boston in Game 7. He is now a part of the surprising Atlanta Hawks, who improved to 30-8 with a 105-87 win over the Sixers.

Before the game Monday with Golden State, 76ers coach Brett Brown suggested that the feared Warriors were actually a good measuring stick for his team. He didn't mean that the Sixers could measure up to the Western Conference's top team; Brown was comparing his squad now to the last time it played Golden State. That would be Dec. 30, a 126-86 Warriors whitewash in Oakland. There was another Sixers loss this time around, but they were much more competitive. Even with the all-star backcourt of Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson having an off-night, the Warriors earned an 89-84 win over the Sixers at the Wells Fargo Center.

OAKLAND, Calif. — The 76ers found out on Friday night what the rest of the league is discovering about one-time patsy Golden State — that the Warriors are pretty good. Golden State, which last season lost games to the Sixers by 22 and 26 points, respectively, built a 20-point lead late in the third — a carryover from a very strong second period — and held on to defeat the Sixers, 96-89, at sold-out (19,596) Oracle Arena on Friday. The loss, the Sixers' 10th in their last 14 games, dropped the Sixers' record to 14-16.

The 76ers have begun their search for a coach to replace Doug Collins, but there could be a few obstacles. One issue facing the Sixers is that some of the candidates who have been identified are still involved in the playoffs. Indiana assistant Brian Shaw, for instance, is also a candidate for the Brooklyn Nets job. The Nets are looking to replace interim coach P.J. Carlesimo, who was fired after Brooklyn dropped Game 7 of its first-round series to the Chicago Bulls. Indiana general manager Donnie Walsh told the New York Daily News that Shaw, who has never been a head coach, will be permitted to interview for coaching jobs when the Pacers' season ends.

LOS ANGELES - On the first day of a new year, the 76ers are no different from a lot of folks in that they want to change the way they've done certain things. For instance, when they take the court at the Staples Center on Tuesday against the Los Angeles Lakers, the Sixers (14-17) don't want to relive the nightmarish defensive performance of just more than two weeks ago. That was when the Lakers (15-15) invaded the Wells Fargo Center, hit 10 three-pointers by halftime and had the Sixers, losers of 11 of their last 15 games, trying to mount comebacks in the second half of a game they ultimately lost, 111-98.

The 76ers seemed more relieved than anything after Friday's 99-80 win over the visiting Atlanta Hawks. Not only did it end a five-game losing streak, but the victory also gave the Sixers something to build on as they begin their annual holiday road trip. Sunday's game in Brooklyn against the Nets will be the first of eight straight road games for the Sixers, who don't return to the Wells Fargo Center until Jan. 8 against Nets. "The win was big, especially going to a place like Brooklyn on the road, we need momentum," said Evan Turner, who scored 21 points, including 12 in the fourth quarter.

Anthony Racobaldo is a three-sport athlete at Williamstown. But when it came to college, Racobaldo knew it was time to focus on one sport. He decided on wrestling - in California, of all places. "I had never been there," Racobaldo said of the Golden State. "But once I visited, I loved it. It's awesome. " Racobaldo signed a wrestling scholarship Wednesday with California Baptist, an NCAA Division II program in Riverside, Calif. Racobaldo said he visited the school in late March - when the weather still was winter-like in South Jersey - and was impressed.

As the third and final round of his bout got underway, Christian Carto probably could have stayed on the outside and let outclassed Daniel Sandoz flail away. But Carto didn't see it that way. "I wanted to win the round," said Carto, of Deptford. "I didn't want to leave anything to the judges because they might have seen something different. " Carto, 18 and last year's Golden Gloves 108-pound national champion, scored an easy unanimous decision Saturday night at 114 pounds at the Golden Gloves Pennsylvania Eastern Regional Championships at 2300 Arena.

SAN FRANCISCO - Tightening up their perimeter defense is one of the 76ers' top goals on their West Coast trip. "Golden State, Phoenix, Portland . . . we are going to have to get better guarding the three," coach Brett Brown said. "And that's a real learning opportunity. " Before Monday's NBA games, the Sixers (4-25) had surrendered the most three-point attempts per game (25.4) in the league. However, they were eighth in three-point percentage defense (33.7), meaning that opponents had missed a lot of shots.

A FORMER FRIEND and teammate crashed what had been a three-game party for the 76ers. And when he was mercifully done, Andre Iguodala had poured himself 32 points, helped himself to a career-high seven three-pointers and took a 110-90 victory for him and his Golden State teammates. On a team that is set with two of the game's premier sharpshooters in Stephen Curry and Klay Thompson, last night it was Iguodala who was draining long balls as if it was his specialty. Curry and Thompson weren't bad, either, as Curry collected a triple-double with 18 points, 12 assists and 10 rebounds, while Thompson made four three-pointers en route to 15 points.

THE LEVEL at which Michael Carter-Williams played and the numbers he accumulated during his first three pro games brought about comparisons and adulation the likes of which few rookies around here have ever gotten. Yesterday, it was made official as the NBA named Carter-Williams its Eastern Conference Player of the Week. In wins over Miami, Washington and Chicago, the 76ers point guard went for 20.7 points, 9.0 assists and 4.3 steals a game. He becomes only the second rookie to win the award in his first week in the league.

On paper, the 76ers don't have a chance. The Golden State Warriors have too much star power. Sixers rookie point guard Michael Carter-Williams will get exposed. And the Sixers won't be able to dictate the pace late in the fourth quarter. But isn't that what people said before the Sixers' first three games, which all ended with upset victories? "We just go out there and compete, stay positive, and play the whole 48 minutes," Evan Turner said. That formula has enabled the youthful and inexperienced Sixers to equal their best start since opening 3-0 in the 2006-07 season.
