Behind Jason Richardson's 21 points and Jrue Holiday's double-double, the Philadelphia 76ers completed a comeback on Tuesday despite trailing for most of the game, topping the Toronto Raptors, 106-98, for their seventh win of the season.
Philadelphia was unable to stop Toronto from leading most of the way in the first half. A three-pointer from Holiday as the first half closed that finally gave the 76ers a lead at the break.
Only able to extend their lead to as many as four points in the early going of the third quarter, the Raptors regained the lead behind DeMar DeRozan and Kyle Lowry, who finished with 24 and 13 points for Toronto.
The Sixers drew close again as the fourth quarter came to a close, with Thaddeus Young and Nick Young leading the way, but the Raptors seemed to hold off each comeback attempt.
Finally, after tying the score at 94, the 76ers were able to pull away, ending the game on a 12-4 run and grabbing the victory. The 76ers ended up outscoring the Raptors 33-18 in the fourth quarter.
