The Nets' streak of three straight home wins came to an end and their losing streak against the Philadelphia 76ers reached seven games on Wednesday, as the Sixers used 35 fast break points to run to a 106-92 win at the Prudential Center.

The game was tied with four minutes to go in the second quarter, but the Sixers then took control with a 12-2 run. A 16-2 Philly run, highlighted by Avery Johnson's first ejection as Nets coach, put them up 21 midway through the third. The Nets made a couple of small runs after that, but they never cut the lead to fewer than nine points.

Neither team shot the ball great, but the Sixers had the edge in turnovers, rebounds and free throws.

They were led by Lou Williams, who topped all scorers with 26 points, and Jrue Holiday, who recorded his first career triple-double. Devin Harris led the Nets with 16 points and seven assists. Derrick Favors grabbed 11 rebounds, but shot just 2-for-9 from the field.
