SACRAMENTO, Calif. — After opening the New Year with a road victory against the Los Angeles Lakers, the Philadelphia 76ers could not imagine going the next 3 ½ months without another win.

But that's just what happened to the Sixers, who had to wait 82 days and endure 15 straight losses before winning again away from home.

Dorell Wright hit six three-pointers and scored 22 points, Jrue Holiday added 21 points and the 76ers snapped their longest road losing streak in more than 25 years with a 117-103 win over the Sacramento Kings Sunday night.

Philadelphia center Spencer Hawes knew it was a long time between road wins. But 82 days? He had no idea.

"That's like a summer break when you were in grade school," said Hawes, a former Seattle Prep and Washington Huskies standout. "We thought we had the last game (Friday against Denver). It's nice to finally get this out of the way."

Hawes had 14 points and 10 rebounds. Former Husky Isaiah Thomas scored 25 points for the Kings. It got loud every time Hawes touched the ball. The former King was booed loudly in pregame introductions and seemingly every time he did anything, good or bad. Hawes has been a big proponent of the Kings relocating to his hometown.

"I have mixed feelings about the Kings moving," Hawes said. "But I've made my intentions clear where I stand. Seattle is where I'm from and I would love to see them get a team."
