PHILADELPHIA _ Isaiah Thomas scored 23 points and Markieff Morris had 18 to lead the Phoenix Suns past the winless Philadelphia 76ers 122-96 on Friday night.
The Sixers have lost their first 12 games and are just six losses shy of matching the 2009-10 New Jersey Nets for worst start in NBA history. Philadelphia is also three away from matching the 1972-73 team for worst start (0-15) in franchise history and could challenge that squad for the worst 82-game season (9-73) in NBA history.
The Sixers actually led 27-26 at the end of the first quarter until the Suns rolled toward the rout.
The Suns shot 69 per cent in the first half and easily shook off the early challenge to win their third straight game.
Michael Carter-Williams led the Sixers with 18 points.
