PHI (13-15) at BK (14-12)

76ers at Nets

The Philadelphia 76ers certainly loved making the short trek to the Garden State to face the then-New Jersey Nets. Doug Collins' crew will hope for similar success on Sunday when Philadelphia visits the Barclays Center in Brooklyn. The 76ers, who have won six straight road encounters with the Nets, snapped a five-game losing streak with a 99-80 triumph over Atlanta on Friday.

Brooklyn suffered its third consecutive setback and eighth in 10 outings with Wednesday's 100-86 loss to New York. Joe Johnson had 17 points for the Nets, who have had some time to stew over the loss before playing the first of five games in seven days. Johnson hopes his scoring touch carries over after the layoff, considering he is averaging 21 points in his last five contests.

ABOUT THE 76ERS (13-14): Jrue Holiday returned from a four-game absence due to a sprained left foot to provide a jolt to the team's sputtering offense. Holiday only mustered 11 points, but his seven assists went a long way in opening the door for Evan Turner (21 points). Collins also went a long way in appeasing the team's angry fans at Wells Fargo Center. After telling Turner to hold the ball with the Sixers just one point shy of both a triple-digit score and a free Big Mac for the fans, Collins promised to reach into his wallet and purchase 18,000 sandwiches as compensation.

ABOUT THE NETS (13-12): After being held scoreless for the second time in four contests, Kris Humphries attempted to blow off steam at trendy nightclub WIP on Wednesday. According to the New York Daily News, Humphries sulked by pouring champagne on the floor as the club repeatedly played songs by Kanye West - who is dating his ex-wife Kim Kardashian. Back on the court, center Brook Lopez is averaging 16.7 points and 8.3 rebounds in his last three games.

BUZZER BEATERS

1. Brooklyn's Jerry Stackhouse, who was the third overall pick by the 76ers in 1995, is questionable to play on Sunday due to a sore right knee. The veteran has missed his team's last five contests.

2. Thaddeus Young scored 24 points when the teams met in Brooklyn for a preseason tilt on Oct. 19. The 76ers walked away with a 106-96 victory.

3. Philadelphia matched a season high with 31 assists in its last game.

Nets 99, 76ers 91.
