Philadelphia had won their past 20 games at the Wells Fargo Centre, and were just four wins away from equaling their franchise record for most consecutive home wins.
The Sixers were expecting to extend that streak to 21, when the lowly Cavs came to town on Saturday, boasting the NBA's worst record at the time of the clash.
However, Philly were jumped and the Cavs managed a 121-112 victory, which left Sixers fans livid, although it was for an unusual reason.
Kendall Jenner, who is reportedly still dating Australian and Sixers star Ben Simmons, was sitting courtside at the match, and has been blamed for the Sixers' shock loss.
In fact, a petition has been signed by just over 3,000 people (and counting), asking for Jenner to be banned from the arena.
The full petition can be read below, and can be signed here.
It has come to the attention of Sixers fans that Ben Simmons has rekindled his relations with Kendall Jenner, a member of the notorious, career killing Kardashian/Jenner family. Jenner was front and center in attendance for the Sixers loss to the worst team in the league, the Cleveland Cavaliers. Better known as the Island of Misfits toys Lebron left behind.
We as Sixers fans cannot sit idly by and let Kendall Jenner ruin what could be a truly special Sixers season by her attendance at Sixers games. We must take action. We must see that the Sixers and the Wells Fargo Center ban Jenner.
It is not a coincidence that the Sixers, who had started the season 10-0 at home, lost their first home game of the year the first time Jenner shows up. To make matters worse, the Cavaliers were winless on the road heading into their Black Friday matchup with the Sixers. It was inexplicable and Jenner's detrimental behavior is clearly to blame.
To make matters even worse than worse, Jimmy Butler left this embarrassing showing with an apparent knee injury. At this point, Jenner is not only damaging the future of this franchise but the livelihood of innocent men as well. It is disgusting behavior on her part.
If the Jenner/Kardashian family has any shred of decency left, Kendall will never again show her face at the Wells Fargo Center. The absence of Jenner, would return the home court advantage the Sixers have garnered since March of last year.
A 20 game home regular season win streak has been snapped, Ben Simmons’ career is in jeopardy, and an innocent man in Jimmy Butler is injured. The madness must stop. BAN KENDALL JENNER FROM THE WELLS FARGO CENTER.
