Jason Richardson added 20 points for Philadelphia, which snapped a three-game home losing streak. Thaddeus Young scored 14 and Nick Young finished with 12.

The Sixers (5-4) dropped the first two games of a five-game homestand to Milwaukee and previously winless Detroit before bouncing back against Utah.

On Wednesday night against the Pistons, the Sixers set a dubious mark by shooting 29.8 percent from the field, the worst showing by them or an opponent since their home arena opened in 1996.

Paul Millsap led the Jazz (4-6) with 22 points while DeMarre Carroll added a career-high 17 and Al Jefferson had 15.
