PHILADELPHIA —The 76ers won again with Elton Brand having another strong game
and earning a hefty paycheque from the organization. Andrew Luck Authentic Jersey . Brand just
couldnt celebrate because his effort was wasted with Dallas. Evan Turner scored
22 points and Thaddeus Young had 20 to lead Philadelphia to a 100-98 win over
the Dallas Mavericks on Tuesday night. Brand scored a season-high 17 points for
the Mavericks in his first game against the Sixers since they used their
one-time amnesty provision over the summer in the new labour deal to let him go.
The move meant the $18.1 million Brand was owed in the final season of his $80
million, five-year contract did not count against the salary cap for
Philadelphia, though it still owed him about $16 million. The two-time All-Star
forward didnt stay unemployed for long, and the Mavericks won the bidding at
$2.1 million to land him off waivers. With Andrew Bynum out with a bone bruise,
Brand was the most expensive player the Sixers were paying to play in this game.
He saw some familiar play in the fourth quarter when the Sixers started running,
forced some turnovers, and worked their way inside for easy buckets. “I was a
part of it last year. We used to do it time and time again,” Brand said. “It was
just hustle plays and being in the right spot at the right time.” Jrue Holiday
had 18 points and seven assists for the Sixers, who snapped a six-game losing
streak to Dallas. Philadelphia shot 6 of 14 on 3-pointers and won its second
straight game. Chris Kaman scored 20 points and Shawn Marion also had 17 for the
Mavericks. Vince Carter added 15 and was clutch in the fourth quarter in trying
to bring Dallas back from a 10-point hole. The 76ers finally created some space
in a back-and-forth game when they snapped a tie with a 10-0 run midway through
the fourth. The highlight came when Holiday stole the ball, took off running and
dished to a driving Young down the lane for a three-point play and a 90-81 lead.
Carter, long a nuisance against Philadelphia, ended the Sixers streak with a
3-pointer for a Dallas team trying to stay afloat with Dirk Nowitzki (knee) out
about another month, at least. The Mavericks whittled it to five until Young hit
a mid-range jumper for a seven-point lead and the Sixers forced a turnover on
the next possession with 90 seconds left. But they failed to score and Carter
delivered again, sinking his third 3 to make it a four-point game. Carter made a
left-handed layup to bring the Mavericks to 100-98 with 37 seconds left.
O.J. Mayo was fouled on a wild drive with 2.7 seconds to go but missed the first
free throw attempt. Mayo also missed the second, but the Mavs recovered.
Jae Crowders last-gasp jumper was off the mark, leaving Dallas with a 2-5 record
on the road. The Mavericks had turnovers on five straight possessions during one
miserable stretch in the fourth. They finished with eight overall in the
quarter. “They were untimely and completely out of character to how we played to
that point,” Dallas coach Rick Carlisle said. “We have to eliminate those
turnovers right now. In games like this, its how you manage mistakes.” Brand
chipped in eight rebounds for the Mavericks and played with an edge against his
former team. Brand was a two-time All-Star when he spurned better offers and
signed the free-agent contract with Philadelphia. While he was the locker-room
leader and heart of the Sixers, his production never merited the deal he signed
as one of the hottest free agents available. “We gave the fans some excitement,”
Brand said. “It definitely wasnt a full success.” He played only 29 games in an
injury-filled first season with Philadelphia and never meshed with former coach
Eddie Jordan in his second. Under Doug Collins, Brand found his niche and led
the Sixers in scoring with 15 points a game in 2010-11. “I wish I could have
coached Elton one year in his prime. Just one,” Collins said. “We miss him. We
miss that soul.” Brand, averaging only 5.5 points this season, is far removed
from his days as a regular double-double threat and was coming off a scoreless
effort in a loss to the Lakers. He looked ready to stick it to his former team
and had 12 points and five rebounds in the first half. Brand powered his way
past Lavoy Allen for a basket and a free throw for the final points of the first
half and a 56-53 Dallas lead. Turner, Holiday and even Kwame Brown started
rolling in the second half to hold off the slumping Mavericks. With Holiday
blossoming into one of the top point guards in the East, the Sixers cant be
counted out, even without Bynum. “Jrue has been big for us. Hes been huge,”
Young said. “Hes shown growth each and every year.” NOTES: Brands family still
lives in the Philadelphia area. His daughter, Mahala, was born on Nov. 7. ...
The Sixers have played 10 of 15 games at home. ... The Sixers are 5-1 against
Western Conference teams this season. ... The 76ers have scored 100-plus points
in each of the last three games after doing it twice in the first 12 games of
the season. ... The Sixers made 24 free throws on a season-high 32 attempts. Donald Brown Jersey . – With nothing working
on the power play, Rob Flick decided to just throw it on net. Pat Angerer Womens Jersey . They dont veer
far from the projected norm, sticking with seemingly secure picks while treating
any risk with the same disdain as they show to a four-minute penalty. http://www.shoptheindianapoliscolts.com/donnie-avery-jerseys
. —The Phoenix Coyotes say forward Brett MacLean is improving after being
taken to hospital for a cardiac emergency last week. Reggie Wayne Jersey . The English golfer
didnt drop a shot in superb scoring conditions, a day after signing for a new
course record 63 on the Hilversumsche course. Jerrell Freeman Jersey . Coach Mike Munchak
announced the decision after practice Monday, saying Lockers time is now in
giving the Titans their best chance to win the AFC South. The Titans had let the
quarterbacks compete through the off-season with each starting a game each this
preseason.ALAMEDA, Calif. —The Oakland Raiders have signed offensive lineman
Ed Wang to a contract. The Raiders announced the move Wednesday. Wang has played
in six career games, all with the Buffalo Bills in 20100. Coby Fleener Jersey. He was waived-injured by
the Bills last season. Wang was a fifth-round pick out of Virginia Tech in 2010,
becoming the first Chinese-American player ever drafted into the league. ’ ’ ’
