PHILADELPHIA (AP) Evan Turner hit the winning basket at the buzzer and scored 29 points to lead the Philadelphia 76ers to a 121-120, overtime win over the Brooklyn Nets on Friday night.

Paul Pierce hit a 3-pointer with 16.9 seconds left in OT to give the Nets the short-lived lead.

Turner, sensational all game, drove past a pair of defenders and tossed up the last-gasp shot. The ball bounced three times around the rim before it dropped through the net. After a brief review, the bucket stood, Turner was mobbed by his teammates and the Sixers snapped a seven-game losing streak.

Thaddeus Young scored 25 points for the Sixers, and Michael Carter-Williams had 15 points and 10 assists.

Alan Anderson had a season-high 26 points for the Nets, Pierce scored 24 with 10 rebounds, and Deron Williams had 17 points and 14 assists.
