AUBURN HILLS, Mich., Feb. 28 (UPI) -- Philadelphia's Thaddeus Young came off the bench to score 20 points Tuesday and the 76ers snapped a five-game losing streak with a 97-68 pounding of Detroit.

Young was also a force underneath, grabbing eight rebounds.

Louis Williams helped out with 13 points and seven assists as the 76ers broke out of a season-worst slide. Also reaching double figures for Philadelphia were Andre Iguodala and Jodie Meeks with 12 points apiece and Elton Brand with 10.

Coach Doug Collins left the bench in the fourth quarter with flu-like symptoms.

The Pistons were led by Greg Monroe's 20 points and eight rebounds.
