Buoyed by a better offensive game, the Philadelphia 76ers (26-16) went on a final quarter 14-4 run to outlast the Brooklyn Nets (18-22), 117-106 on a beautiful Wednesday night in scenic South Philadelphia.
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.
Ben Simmons turned in his usual double double on a 20 point. 11 assist affair.
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.
