                     === Hawes leads Sixers past Magic ===
 
 Philadelphia,  PA (Sports  Network)  -  Spencer Hawes  had  21  points and  14
 rebounds in the Philadelphia 76ers' 78-61 win over the Orlando Magic.
 
 Jrue  Holiday added 13 points and 14 assists for the Sixers, who have gone 4-1
 so far on their eight-game homestand.
 
 The 61 points allowed was a season low and set a new Wells Fargo Center mark.
 
 Sixers  forward Thaddeus  Young left  the  game in  the middle  of the  second
 quarter  with a  strained left  hamstring when  he was  attempting to  steal a
 rebound from Magic forward Gustavo Ayon. Young did not return.
 
 "Thad  pulled  a hamstring, he's  going to be  out a while," Philadelphia head
 coach Doug Collins said.
 
 E'Twaun  Moore netted 18 points to lead Orlando, which tied a season-high with
 its 10th straight loss.
 
 The  Magic had six players out, notably leading scorer Arron Afflalo (strained
 left  calf), guards Jameer Nelson (bruised left forearm) and J.J. Redick (sore
 right shoulder) and forward Glen Davis.
 
 "Overall,  it was a  really good effort, I give credit to the character of the
 guys who suited up," Magic head coach Jacque Vaughn said.
 
 Orlando shot just 33.8 percent (27-of-80) from the floor.
 
 The  Magic trailed  42-35 at the break and pulled within three after beginning
 the  third on a  7-2 flurry, but the Sixers countered with a 14-1 run to seize
 control of the contest.
 
 Hawes had seven points during the surge, which was capped on Arnett Moultrie's
 jumper  to make it 58-42 in favor of Philadelphia late in the frame before the
 home team took a 60-46 lead into the final period.
 
 The margin reached its apex at 20 in the fourth.
 
 Philly  opened up a 22-6 advantage in the opening stanza and led 28-16 after a
 quarter of play.
 
                                   Game Notes
 
 Hawes  tallied his seventh double-double of the season ... Nick Young recorded
 15  points,  six rebounds  and  four  steals  for  Philly ...  Nikola  Vucevic
 registered nine points and 14 boards for Orlando.
