Philadelphia 76ers Struggling More Than Twitter Foe Ohio Gov. John Kasich

Team and candidate have been teasing one another on Twitter.

But guess what: So far this season, they don’t. So at least for now, Kasich was right.

The 76ers on Friday night set the record for the most consecutive losses by a major professional sports team –- 27. They are 0-17 this season.

Kasich has since embraced the brief Twitter imbroglio. He has hit the basketball court a couple times on the campaign trail since then, playfully taunting the team but also praising its players and coach.

Kasich may be struggling to drum up momentum in the early-voting states and across the country, but this match-up is one in which he comes out on top.
