76ers 106, Nets 92: Philly Wins In Jersey Again, Avery Johnson Ejected

The New Jersey Nets have looked like a different team playing in Newark lately, having won five of their last six at home.  That home court advantage wasn't enough to finally find a way to take out the Philadelphia 76ers as the Nets fell 106-92 at the Prudential Center Wednesday night.  Philadelphia has now won seven in a row over New Jersey.

Brook Lopez, Devin Harris and Kris Humphries each scored 16 points for the Nets.  Travis Outlaw and Anthony Morrow added 10 points a piece.

D-League call-up Orien Greene made his Nets debut in the game's final minute, scoring two points.

Philadelphia ran right past New Jersey most of the night on their way to 35 fast break points.  Lou Williams led the charge with 26 points off the bench.  Andre Igoudala had 16, while Elton Brand and Jodie Meeks contributed 15 each.

The Sixers held a nine point lead at half and pushed that to 21 in the third quarter, when Nets head coach Avery Johnson earned his first ejection since coming to New Jersey.  Led by two Anthony Morrow threes, the Nets went on a 10-0 run but never had momentum again the rest of the way.

Despite being just 6-18 on the road entering Wednesday, the Sixers won for the second time this season in Newark and have taken seven overall over the Nets.

Johnson will try to stay on the sidelines for the Nets next game, Friday night in Detroit against the Pistons.
