Turner leads Sixers to win over Cavs

Evan Turner scored 22 points and grabbed 10 rebounds, Tony Wroten added 18 points and the Philadelphia 76ers cruised to a 94-79 victory over the Cleveland Cavaliers on Friday night to overshadow the return of Andrew Bynum.

Thaddeus Young added 16 points, while James Anderson and Michael Carter-Williams had 11 each for the Sixers, who snapped a two-game losing streak and improved to 4-2.

The buzz leading into the game was the return of Bynum, who signed a two-year, $24 million contract with the Cavaliers in July. Only one season is guaranteed and the team holds the option for next season.

Bynum had been acquired by the Sixers in a four-team, 12-player trade in the summer of 2012 but never played for them because of injuries.

Bynum played 18 minutes off the bench and finished with four points and five rebounds as the fans cascaded boos toward him every time he touched the ball.
