Recap: Philadelphia vs. Utah

Philadelphia, PA (Sports Network) - Jrue Holiday poured in a game-high 26 points to help the Philadelphia 76ers down the Utah Jazz, 99-93, Friday at Wells Fargo Center.

Holiday also handed out seven assists, while Jason Richardson buried five 3- pointers en route to 20 points and Thaddeus Young chipped in 14 points for the Sixers, who snapped a two-game skid.

Paul Millsap paced the Jazz with 22 points and seven rebounds and DeMarre Carroll donated a career-high 17 points in the setback, Utah's second in a row.

"We showed some fight," Jazz coach Tyrone Corbin said. "This team has a lot of pride. They just made some shots."

Utah trailed 71-64 after three frames, but the team opened the fourth with a 7-0 sprint to knot the game less than two minutes in.

The Sixers responded with six straight points to spark a 13-2 run, giving the home team an 84-73 lead with 6:40 remaining in the contest.

The Jazz made one final run, as a Mo Williams triple capped a 9-2 swing to trim Utah's deficit to 86-82 with 3 1/3 minutes left, but the Sixers scored the next six points and made enough free throws down the stretch to hang on for the victory.

"That was a great win for us," Sixers coach Doug Collins said. "We finished well."

Richardson drained his second 3-pointer just past the seven minute mark of the first quarter, sparking a 7-0 surge to give the home team a 24-13 edge with 4:33 left in the first.

Philadelphia carried a 30-20 lead into the second, but the Jazz scored the first nine points of the frame as part of a 15-2 run to take a 35-32 edge with 7:51 left until halftime.

Nick Young buried a corner 3-pointer later in the stanza to knot the game at 35-35, and after a jumper from Carroll gave Utah a brief lead, Philadelphia closed the quarter on a 17-6 swing to take a 52-43 advantage into the locker room.

Utah opened the second half on an 8-2 spurt, but Richardson and Evan Turner knocked down back-to-back triples to start a 12-2 Philadelphia run that gave the home team a 66-53 lead with four minutes left in the third.

A Carroll putback layup late in the quarter brought the Jazz within 71-64 heading into the fourth.

He is still expected to be sidelined until at least early January ... Turner finished with 11 points.
