Orlando Pro Summer League Final Score: Justin Holiday Leads Sixers Past Nets, 79-71

The Philadelphia 76ers defeated the Brooklyn Nets, 79-71, in Wednesday's Orlando Summer League action at Amway Center.

The teams battled back and forth during the first half with Brooklyn holding a three-point edge after the first quarter and the Sixers leading by three at halftime. Things ended up knotted up at 54 apiece after the third quarter. Ultimately, Philadelphia's hot shooting from three-point range would allow them to pull away in the final frame despite the Nets' 28-15 free throw advantage. The Sixers shot 8-18 from behind the arc while the Nets hit just three of their 18 three-point attempts.

The Sixers were led by Justin Holiday's 18 points. Holiday was 4-4 from behind the arc on the day. Xavier Silas and Solomon Jones also reached double figures for the Sixers with 10 and 12 points, respectively. Former Penn guard Zack Rosen came off the bench and had six points and six assists for Philadelphia in 17 minutes. St. John's product Moe Harkless did not play as he recovers from a hip injury. The Nets were led by Marshon Brooks' 18 points and Tornike Shengelia's 17 points. Bryant Dunston (14 points) and Tyshawn Taylor (12 points) also scored in double figures for Brooklyn.

The win was the first of the Summer League for the Sixers (1-2) while the Nets (0-3) have lost all of their games. The Sixers next game will be against the Orlando Magic (1-1) on July 12 at 5:00 p.m.
