The 76ers broke their 26-game losing streak on Saturday against the only team in the league more desperate to lose than they are right now: the Detroit Pistons.

The Pistons, who must send their pick to the Charlotte Bobcats if it falls between Nos. 9 and 30, are currently sitting with the eighth-worst record in the NBA. Every loss counts at this point, and Detroit let the lowly Sixers beat it by 25 on Saturday.

We are in the final two weeks of the NBA season. And while teams are duking it out for top playoff seeds, the teams on this list are still duking it out for a few more pingpong balls in the lottery.

Here's our weekly look at where the 10 worst teams in the NBA stand in their quest for the No. 1 pick in the draft.
