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.
