PHILADELPHIA, PA —  With a pair of disruptive losses to begin a five-game homestand, the Philadelphia faithfuls ended the stand with a crowd of nearly 14,000 standing on its feet, roaring in approval. The Sixers dismantled an improved Toronto Raptors team, 106-98, Tuesday night, adding to a three-game winning streak at the Wells Fargo Center in South Philadelphia. The 106 points tied a season-high for the boys in blue. “We need to start out a lot better,” said Jrue Holiday, who finished with double-double figures (19 points & 12 assists) “But I think finishing games, we’re really learning and really feeling each other.” Nick "Swaggy P" Young came off the bench to lead five Sixers players in double-figure scoring, piling on a season-high 23 points on 7-for-13 from the floor. He helped the finish seal the deal late with 10 4th quarter buckets. “You know, that’s all a part of the Swaggy P movement,” Young said following the game. Adding to the double-digit scoring was Thaddeus Young who finished with a season-high 18 points and Jason Richardson who finished with 21 points of his own by notching 12 points from behind the arc. With all this hot shooting, the Sixers still look like one of the stronger teams in the Eastern Conference as of late. Tyler R.
