Four days ago, the Brooklyn Nets beat the Philadelphia 76ers by 30-some odd points. On Friday night, the Sixers got some revenge — to a certain extent.
Evan Turner hit the game-winner in overtime to top the mighty Brookly Nets 121-120 in Philly. Granted the Nets were without Kevin Garnett (rest) and Joe Johnson (personal reasons).
On the other hand, the Sixers welcomed back Michael Carter-Williams back into the lineup — he finished with 15 points and 10 assists. With the win, the Sixers “improved” to 8-19 on the season.
Alan Anderson led the Nets with a season-high 26 points, Paul Pierced added 24 points and 10 rebounds. Brook Lopez finished with 22 points, Mirza Teletovic (who?) had 18 and Deron Williams scored 17 points and dropped 14 dimes. The Nets “improve” to 9-17 on the season.
UNOFFICIAL: Turner shouted “NOW TRADE ME” after he hit the shot.
INTERESTING STAT OF THE NIGHT: Each of the Sixers’ past four victories have come at home in overtime. (H/T NBA.com)
