Quick Recap: Philadelphia Sixers 108, New Jersey Nets 97

  • The Sixers had lost five in a row before tonight, and had never swept a season series from the Nets.

Seven Philly players scored in double digits, led by Andre Iguodala, who netted 20 points, 8 assists and 4 rebounds.

  • Terrence Williams, in a surprise start had a shaky game, scoring 13, but going 4-16 from the field.
  • Brook Lopez’s tough March continued as he scored 12 points on 2-9 shooting. He also grabbed 5 rebounds and seems to be losing his temper more than usual out there.
  • The Nets were shockingly accurate from the charity stripe, going 23-24 on free throws.
  • The Sixers outscored the Nets 52-34 in the pain and 22-10 on the fast break.
