EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J., Jan. 31 (UPI) -- Andre Iguodala's basket and free throws by Allen Iverson and Thaddeus Young in the final 1:32 Sunday helped Philadelphia edge the New Jersey Nets 83-79.

The win ended a three-game slide for the Sixers and left the Nets with a record of 4-42 in their dismal 2009-10 season.

Iguodala, Philadelphia's top scorer with 14 points, sank an 18-foot shot and Iverson and Young each dropped in a pair of free throws to help the Sixers hold off the Nets in the last minute and a half.

Samuel Dalembert had 12 points and Iverson and Lou Williams tallied 11 each for the Sixers.

Brook Lopez and Jarvis Hayes put up 18 points apiece for New Jersey.
