Sixers Cruise to Easy Win Over Wizards
Elton Brand had 17 points and nine rebounds, and Jrue Holiday also scored 17 to lead the Philadelphia 76ers to a 103-83 win over the Washington Wizards on Monday night.
Jodie Meeks added 15 points and Andre Iguodala had 11 assists. The Sixers led by 30 in the first half and easily cruised to their third win of the season against the hapless Wizards.
Jordan Crawford led the Wizards with 17 points. They lost their third straight game and remained the NBA’s only winless road team at 0-7.
The Sixers are one of the league’s early-season surprises and are counting on this week’s slate of home games to fatten their record. After the Wizards, they play New Jersey, Charlotte and Detroit, four of the five worst teams in the Eastern Conference.
