NEW YORK, Dec. 23 (UPI) -- Brooklyn's Joe Johnson scored 22 points Sunday, including a trio of 3-pointers, and the Nets snapped a three-game skid with a 95-92 win over Philadelphia.

Deron Williams (16 points), Gerald Wallace and Brook Lopez (14 apiece) also played big roles for Brooklyn, which used a 14-6 run in the fourth quarter to break the game open.

Jrue Holiday netted 24 points in his second game back in the 76ers' lineup following a sprained foot injury, but couldn't prevent Philadelphia's sixth loss in seven contests.

Thaddeus Young provided a double-double of 18 points and 10 rebounds for the Sixers.
