Halfway through their road contest in Cleveland, the Philadelphia 76ers look ready to snap their first losing streak of the 2011-2012 season. The Sixers shot lights out from the field in the first half and lead the Cavs 58-41 through 24 minutes.
Forward Thaddeus Young has led the way for Philly so far, putting up 12 first half points on 5-8 shooting and grabbing four rebounds. Lou Williams came off the bench to add 10 points, and Jrue Holiday put in 11 points of his own.
Philadelphia's season-long strong play on the defensive end has continued tonight, as they held Cleveland to just 39.5% shooting and surrendered just one made three pointer.
