Recap


76ers 107, Rockets 100: Jrue Holiday had a team-high 30 points to lead five players in double figures as Philadelphia began its pronounced home stretch by snapping a five-game losing streak.

Thaddeus Young collected 18 points and 12 rebounds while Holiday added nine assists for the 76ers, who won for just the sixth time in 22 contests.

James Harden had 29 points, marking the 20th consecutive time he reached the 20-point plateau. Chandler Parsons scored 13 of his 23 points in the first half for the Rockets, who lost all three games on their road trip.

After posting a 58-50 halftime advantage, Philadelphia kept up the intensity as Young made a pair of jumpers to highlight a 6-0 run to start the third quarter.

Harden was able to trim the deficit to three by scoring six straight points in the fourth quarter, but Jason Richardson drained a mid-range jumper and Young added an emphatic dunk as Philadelphia pulled away.

GAME NOTEBOOK: The 76ers will get to know their fans at the Wells Fargo Center quite well. Saturday's contest began a stretch of 12 home games in 13 outings for coach Doug Collins' club. ... Harden's last game without reaching the 20-point plateau was a 15-point effort in a 107-105 win over the Los Angeles Lakers on Dec. 4. ... Philadelphia hasn't lost six in a row since March 30-April 9, 2010.
