Evans, Williams lead Nets to 109-89 win over 76ers
Reggie Evans grabbed a career-high 23 rebounds and Deron Williams scored 22 points to lead the Brooklyn Nets to a 109-89 win over the Philadelphia 76ers on Tuesday night.
Evans dominated on the glass, outrebounding the undersized Sixers 23-22 through three quarters. Evans had 22 rebounds against Seattle in 2006.
Andray Blatche scored 20 points for the Nets, hours after he was questioned by Philadelphia police as part of a sexual assault investigation at an upscale hotel. Blatche was not charged.
He wrote about the incident on Twitter, saying, "Im ok and I didn't do anything jus was n the area when it happened," Blatche tweeted. He later took down the tweet.
Jrue Holiday scored 19 points and Spencer Hawes had 14 for the Sixers.
