Recap: Boston vs. Philadelphia

Boston, MA (SportsNetwork.com) - Michael Carter-Williams scored 24 points to lead the Philadelphia 76ers to a 111-102 win over the Boston Celtics on Friday.

The win was only the third since Jan. 29, when the Sixers defeated the Celtics in Boston on a buzzer-beater. From that time, Philadelphia lost 28 of its last 29 games.

"I'm just so proud of their ability to play as a team and continue to do the right thing and have a true desire to get better," said Philadelphia head coach Brett Brown.

Henry Sims added a career-high 24 points with nine rebounds in the win, while Thaddeus Young and Elliot Williams each contributed 15 points for the Sixers.

Jerryd Bayless paced Boston with 23 points and Rajon Rondo tallied 11 points, 11 rebounds and 16 assists. The Celtics have lost seven straight. Brandon Bass chipped in 12 points and 11 boards in the setback.

"They moved the ball, they moved bodies," said Celtics head coach Brad Stevens. "Carter-Williams was fantastic. Henry Sims dominated the paint for them. I'm sure they've had their down moments throughout their losing streak, but tonight wasn't one of them."

Jeff Green converted a three-point play to help the Celtics trim the deficit to 89-86 at the midway point of the fourth.

Carter-Williams answered with two straight buckets to extend the margin and jumpstart an 11-4 run that gave the Sixers a 100-90 lead with 2:21 remaining.

Green was fouled shooting a 3-pointer and converted all three from the stripe to cut the deficit to seven, but that is as close as the hosts would get.

Earlier, the Sixers jumped out to a 23-17 lead after one. Boston outscored Philadelphia, 34-26, in the second quarter and the Celtics brought a 51-49 lead into the locker room at the half.

Boston led by four with four minutes left in the third when the Sixers ended the quarter on an 11-2 run to take a 76-71 after three.
