PHILADELPHIA, PA — With a pair of disruptive losses to begin a five-game homestand, the Philadelphia faithfuls ended the stand with a crowd of nearly 14,000 standing on its feet, roaring in approval.
The Sixers dismantled an improved Toronto Raptors team, 106-98, Tuesday night, adding to a three-game winning streak at the Wells Fargo Center in South Philadelphia. The 106 points tied a season-high for the boys in blue.
“We need to start out a lot better,” said Jrue Holiday, who finished with double-double figures (19 points & 12 assists) “But I think finishing games, we’re really learning and really feeling each other.”
Nick "Swaggy P" Young came off the bench to lead five Sixers players in double-figure scoring, piling on a season-high 23 points on 7-for-13 from the floor. He helped the finish seal the deal late with 10 4th quarter buckets.
“You know, that’s all a part of the Swaggy P movement,” Young said following the game.
With all this hot shooting, the Sixers still look like one of the stronger teams in the Eastern Conference as of late.
