Despite their week off, the Philadelphia 76ers lost to the Phoenix Suns on their home court 115-101 this past Saturday night. This makes the13th road game loss in a row for the 76ers.

The main threat was Suns 6-foot-11 center, Miles Plumlee, who scored a career-high 22 points, 13 rebounds and blocked three shots. ''I'm happy with my progress,'' said Plumlee. ''I feel better every game. I feel like I have more energy because I'm not as anxious on the court, I'm not wasting my energy. I just feel like I can play harder.''

Fellow teammates Goran Dragic added 21 points, Eric Bledsoe another 20 and Marcus Morris 18 points, which included three fourth-quarter 3-pointers.

The 76ers stayed in it for a while with their 3-point shooting, completing 9 for 16 in the first half to keep the score close, 60-59. However they lagged in the second half making only 2 of 13 on 3s.

Thaddeus Young totaled 30 points, Michael Carter-Williams 27 and Tony Wroten 22, but it wasn’t enough. Leading scorer Evan Turner, who has averaged 19 points per game, was sidelined with a sore right knee.

''We're not going to win games giving up 30 fast-break points,'' Carter-Williams said, ''so we've got to get back on mistakes, and that starts with me getting back and when I get back, that leads everyone else getting back.''
