Philadelphia got off to another slow start in the third and allowed the Hawks get comfortably ahead. Jeff Teague had a career night offensively for the Hawks and really lit it up. Philadelphia played well in the final quarter but it wasn't enough as they lost 113-103, falling back to .500 at 5-5.
Evan Turner once again led the 76ers with 27 points as his offense has been greatly improved through this season's first ten games. However, Turner had an awful 7 turnovers (of Philadelphia's 16), and although he is shooting much better, he continues to give the ball up (3.2 per game). Thad Young's up-and-down season continued, this game contributing 17 points, 7 rebounds and 2 steals. Coming off a huge game against Houston, James Anderson only hit 1 shot, but had 2 steals and 2 blocks. Hawes recorded another double-double with 14 points and 12 boards. Starting in MCW's place again, Wroten scored 22 and dished out 6 assists but had a plus/minus of -19 while on the floor. As a team, Philadelphia scored a solid 56 point in the paint.
Teague had a career-high 33 points and added 10 assists. Horford had 20 points and Carroll scored a career-high 21. The Hawks shot 43.5% from beyond the arc while the Sixers struggled hitting only 26.3%.
The Sixers face off against the Pelicans in New Orleans on Saturday. It will be the first time the Sixers play against Jrue Holiday, their former all-star.
