In a fourth and back struggle, Brooklyn got it knotted at 104-104 when Jarrett Allen drained a three with a minute and a half played in the final stanza before Philadelphia turned up the heat an went on a 14-4 devastating run to make the difference in a much needed Philadelphia win.

Tobias Harris added a double-double of his own off a 34 point, 10 rebound game.
Philly went 46 of 88 (51.%) from the field and dropped 11 of 20 from long distance.
