Sixers win 3rd in a row

Thaddeus Young, Jrue Holiday and Nick Young scored 16 points apiece, and the Philadelphia 76ers beat Toronto 93-83 on Saturday night, their fifth victory in six meetings with the Raptors.

Spencer Hawes had 12 points and 11 rebounds, Dorell Wright added 15 points and Philadelphia won its third straight, with all three victories on the road.

It's the first time the 76ers have done that since February 2003.

The Sixers, who won 106-100 at Boston on Friday night, knocked off another Atlantic Division opponent thanks to a huge second quarter that saw them turn a six-point deficit into a 19-point lead.

Andrea Bargnani led Toronto with 23 points, while DeMar DeRozan had 19. Jose Calderon had 14 points and 11 assists, but the Raptors lost their third straight.
