PHILADELPHIA (AP) Mike Scott and Elton Brand scored 18 points apiece to lead seven Hawks in double figures and Atlanta routed the Philadelphia 76ers 125-99 Friday night.

DeMarre Carroll contributed 13, Paul Millsap, Jeff Teague and Lou Williams had 12 apiece, and Kyle Korver added 11 for the Hawks.

Thaddeus Young scored 29 points, Michael Carter-Williams added 17 and Elliot Williams had 15 for the Sixers, who have dropped 11 of their last 13 home games, including five straight.

After going into the locker room with a 64-52 advantage, the Hawks blitzed the Sixers for 38 points in the third quarter to take a 102-75 lead.

The Sixers, now 8-16 at home, haven't lost five in a row at home since December of 2006.
