76ers Vs. Nets Final Score: Philadelphia Breezes By New Jersey

More: Hawes, Sixers bounce back against Nets, regain 7th seed in East

In a game the Philadelphia 76ers had to have, their standout bench trio of Lou Williams, Spencer Hawes and Thaddeus Young sparked a monster second half to cruise past the New Jersey Nets 107-88 on Tuesday night.

The three needed just 77 minutes to rack up 58 points, and the Sixers bench outscored the Nets 62 to 41.

Philadelphia controlled the second half by executing offensively and putting on the defensive clamps. They finished 23-26 from the line, and held New Jersey to just 18.2 percent from beyond the three point mark.

Kris Humphries led all Nets with 20 points and 10 rebounds.

With the win, the Sixers (30-27) maintain their narrow lead on the New York Knicks (29-27) for the seventh spot in the Eastern Conference standings.

Philadelphia now travels to play Toronto on Wednesday night.
