NEW ORLEANS (AP) - Jrue Holiday scored 14 of his 23 points in the fourth quarter, leading the Philadelphia 76ers to a 101-93 win over the New Orleans Hornets on Wednesday night.
Holiday, who was 3 for 9 from the field after three quarters, drained three 3-pointers and five of six shots the rest of the way. The 76ers trailed 73-67 at the end of the third, but Holiday scored 10 points down the stretch as Philadelphia extended an 84-83 lead to 98-89.
Evan Turner added 21 points and Spencer Hawes scored 17 for the 76ers, who won for the third time during a franchise-record five-game road trip to start the season.
Eric Gordon led New Orleans with 22 points after missing four consecutive games with a bruised knee. Carl Landry added 21 points and eight rebounds while Jarrett Jack had 19 points and 11 assists, but it wasn't enough to keep the Hornets from losing their fourth in a row.
