The Philadelphia 76ers picked up a big road win over the Lakers on Tuesday night, downing Kobe Bryant and Co. by a score of 103-99 at Staples Center. The 76ers came up with a couple of key stops late and, despite Bryant scoring 36 points, L.A. was unable to get over the hump during the fourth quarter.
Jrue Holiday led the way for Philadelphia with 26 points and 10 assists. Evan Turner added 22 points and 13 rebounds in a game-high 41 minutes, while Spencer Hawes had 13 points, five rebounds and six assists in limited action off the bench.
The Lakers struggled to shoot the ball all night long. They hit just 39 percent of their attempts from the field, including three of 22 from behind the three-point arc. Prior to the final few minutes of the fourth quarter, L.A. hit just one three-pointer. No player other than Bryant had more than 13 points, and just three players came off the bench for head coach Mike D'Antoni.
The 76ers are now 15-17 on the season, while Los Angeles dipped below .500, to 15-16.
