Kings Vs. 76ers Final Score: Philadelphia Downs Sacramento, 112-85, For Sixth Straight Win

The Philadelphia 76ers recorded their sixth straight win of the season after taking down the Sacramento Kings 112-85 on Tuesday night. Jimmer Fredette was held to just seven points in his starting debut while Elton Brand notched 21 points and 10 rebounds.

The Philadelphia 76ers extended their winning streak to six games after downing the Sacramento Kings, 112-85, on Tuesday night. The game started tight early, but an Evan Turner lay-up with 57 second left in the first quarter would give the Sixers the lead for good. An 11-0 run to start the second half seemingly broke the will of the Kings, giving the Sixers a commanding 21-point lead on which they would only expand.

The biggest storyline heading into the game was how the rookie Jimmer Fredette would do in his first ever start for the Kings. For the most part he was held in check, scoring just seven points on 2-for-7 shooting (1-for-2 from 3-point range) in place of the injured Marcus Thornton.

Meanwhile, Elton Brand enjoyed a season-high 21-point, 10-rebound performance. He hit three buckets during the Sixers' run in the second half. Turner also had a double-double on 16 points and 10 rebounds. The only negative for the Philadelphia centered on Spencer Hawes, who aggravated a lower back injury and had to sit out the second half of the win.
