Sixers Defeat Cavaliers To Finally Get Over .500

Six Sixers scored in double figures as Philadelphia beat the Cavaliers 95-91 in Cleveland to push their record above .500 for the first time this season. The game got off to an ugly start as the Cavs starters stretched their lead to 12 inside of seven minutes, but Doug Collins turned to his bench, who quickly came to the rescue. By the end of the first, it was just a one point game. In the second half, it was the Sixers who saw a double digit lead cut as the Cavs came within two in the waning seconds. However, clutch foul shooting from Jrue Holiday and Jodie Meeks sealed it for the Sixers.

Three from Sixers' bench scored in double figures including Thaddeus Young with 12, Lou Williams 16, & Evan Turner with 10. Elton Brand paced the starters with 16 points and 8 rebounds.

The Sixers remain comfortably in the 7th spot in the East, three and half games above the #8 seed Pacers and just a half game back of the Knicks who are visiting the Heat tonight.

The Sixers, riding a season high 4 game win streak, next host the Dallas Mavericks on Tuesday
