PHOENIX (CBS) - The 76ers did something Wednesday night they very rarely do. They won in Phoenix for the just the second time in their last nine trips.

Jrue Holiday scored 25 and Even Turner added 23 points off the bench as the Sixers took care of Phoenix 123-110. Andres Nocioni also had one of his biggest games as a Sixer, he finished with 22 points and 12 rebounds.

The Sixers had been just 3-20 in their previous 23 games on the Suns’ home floor, but they picked up this win with an age-old formula: They hit shots.

The Sixers shot 55 percent from the field and 86 percent from the line (30-35) in improving to 13-19 on the season.  They also did all this damage without Andre Igoudala. The swingman missed his second straight game with tendonitis in his right Achilles’ tendon.

Steve Nash had 23 points and 15 assists in defeat for 13-17 Phoenix.

The Sixers are now 3-3 on this eight-game road trip which continues Friday night in Los Angeles with a game against the Lakers.
