Toronto, ON (Sports Network) - Thaddeus Young scored 17 points, leading six
players in double-figures, and the 76ers earned a much-needed 93-75 win over
the Raptors on Wednesday.
With the win Philadelphia pulled within 2 1/2 games of the Celtics for the top
spot in the Atlantic Division and moved 1 1/2 games ahead of the Knicks for
seventh place in the Eastern Conference. Both Boston and New York are in
action Wednesday night.
Nikola Vucevic added 12 points and Elton Brand finished with 11 and eight
rebounds for the Sixers, who have won two straight for the first time since
winning three in a row from March 7-11.
Alan Anderson and Ed Davis scored 13 points apiece to pace the Raptors, losers
of four straight. They were again without leading scorer Andrea Bargnani, who
is suffering from tightness in his calf.
