76ers vs. Nets final score: Philly falls to Brooklyn, 95-92

Joe Camporeale-USA TODAY Sports

The 76ers stayed close to the Nets all game long, but weren't able to seal the deal in Brooklyn.

The Philadelphia 76ers came close, but they ultimately fell short against the Brooklyn Nets on Sunday, losing 95-92 at the Barclays Center. Both teams have fairly even statistics, but the Nets shot 20 more free throws than the Sixers, converting 21-30.

Jrue Holiday led the Sixers with 24 points, nine assists, and six rebounds. Thaddeus Young had 18 points and 10 rebounds, and Evan Turner and Lavoy Allen had 15 and 12 points, respectively. The loss was Philly's sixth in their past seven games, and destroys any momentum they may have built off their impressive 99-80 win over the Hawks on Friday night.

Joe Johnson had 22 points to lead Brooklyn, and was one of six players to finish the game in double figures for scoring. The win snaps a three game losing streak for the Nets.

The 76ers next game is on Wednesday, Dec. 26, when they travel to Memphis to take on the Grizzlies.
