After a sluggish three quarters, the 76ers put together a 17-0 fourth-quarter rally to put away the Wizards, 101-96. The night before, Philly had frittered away a 20-point lead in Atlanta; back home, the shoe was on the other foot. (Although not literally; Sixers coach Maurice Cheeks continued to nurse his gouty, shoeless left foot.)
Washington did their part in the fourth quarter, missing shots and sloughing off possessions liberally; Philadelphia's Rodney Carney twisted the knife with a couple of devastating dunks, including the equalizer at 90. Sixers star Andre Iguodala ended with 20 points, leading all scorers.
