Philadelphia carried a 54-49 lead into halftime and grabbed control in the third quarter. Young’s thunderous dunk with 3:50 left gave the Sixers a 78-60 lead.

Iguodala hit a 3-pointer during a 7-2 surge that gave Philadelphia a 95-66 lead in the fourth.

“I think it was a great thing to see us push forward in the second half,” Young said. “We’ve had too many games this season where we let teams back in it. We didn’t do that this time and I think it’s a sign of us maturing as a team.”
