Iguodala leads 76ers over Hornets

After a tough 102-101 loss to the Celtics last week, the 76ers bounced back against New Orleans.

Philadelphia started scoring early and often as Lou Williams had 17-points, Elton Brand added 15-points, and 13-rebounds for his 8th double-double of the season, while Andre Iguodala paced the offensive attack with 16-points, 10-rebounds, and 5-assists. With the 88-70 win, the 76ers improve to 8-15, as the team is beginning to play well together on both ends of the floor.

The Sixers marched ahead with a 17-2 run that began with 1:21 to go in the first quarter. The scoring spree lasted until there was 5:07 to go in the second period, with Iguodala and Williams each scoring seven points during the run. “We just trying to find a good rhythm,” said Iguodala, who had his fourth double-double. “The guys are starting to believe in themselves. As long as we continue to play the right style of basketball, we’ll have success.”

The 76ers will travel to Newark, NJ tomorrow to face off against the Nets…game time is 7PM EST.
