Updated Monday, March 25, 2013 - 6:35am
Dorell Wright hit six 3-pointers and scored 22 points, Jrue Holiday added 21 and the Philadelphia 76ers snapped their longest road losing streak in over 25 years with a 117-103 win over the Sacramento Kings on Sunday night.
It was a rare show of offensive explosiveness for the Sixers, who came in last in the NBA with an average of just under 93 points a game. They had 91 entering the fourth quarter and shot 49 percent to snap their 15-game road skid and beat the Kings for the fifth straight time in Sacramento.
The Sixers' last road win had come New Year's Day against the Los Angeles Lakers. Philadelphia's road losing streak was its longest since the club dropped 20 in a row from Dec. 28, 1987-March 4, 1988.
Isaiah Thomas scored 25 points, Marcus Thornton added 22 and Tyreke Evans had 19 points and eight assists for the Kings, who had their three-game home win streak snapped. Patrick Patterson chipped in 12 points.
