Posted: Jan. 24, 2011 The Philadelphia 76ers finished last season with one of the worst home records in the NBA. A much improved defense has helped them turn that around. Philadelphia will look to win its fourth straight at home and sweep a season series from the Suns for the first time in nine years Monday night. After road losses to Orlando and Charlotte by a combined four points, the 76ers (18-25) returned home to defeat Utah 96-85 on Saturday night. Philadelphia held the Jazz to 42.0 percent shooting and improved to 13-7 at Wells Fargo Center - surpassing its 12 home victories from 2009-10. "We've been playing strong on the road, we just haven't finished," said Elton Brand, who had 19 points. "There's a lot of pressure on us to come home and win, which we've been doing."
