Iggy stars as Sixers down Jazz

Andre Iguodala scored 22 points and Lou Williams added 20 off the bench, as the Philadelphia 76ers snapped a six-game losing streak to the Utah Jazz with a comfortable 96-85 decision.

Elton Brand provided 19 points and eight rebounds for the Sixers, who were coming off consecutive road  losses at Orlando and Charlotte.

"That was a really important win for us tonight, especially after the two tough losses on the road. Our guys really executed well tonight," Sixers head coach Doug Collins said. Spencer Hawes chipped in eight points and 11 rebounds for Philadelphia, which shot 24-of-31 from the foul line.

Deron Williams paced the Jazz with 20 points, 14 assists and six rebounds, while Paul Millsap and Al Jefferson each posted double-doubles in the loss, the club's fourth straight to open a five-game road trip.
Jefferson ended with 19 points and 13 rebounds, while Millsap had 18 and 12.
