GAME OF THE DAY

Brand lifts the 76ers above the .500 mark

November 24, 2008|ASSOCIATED PRESS

PHILADELPHIA — Elton Brand had 23 points and 12 rebounds, Andre Iguodala added 15 points and the 76ers moved above .500 for the first time this season with an 89-81 victory over the Golden State Warriors on Sunday.

Brand made 10 of 22 shots and grabbed five on his 12 rebounds on the offensive board as he got his seventh double-double. It was the best performance this season for the 76ers' marquee free agent. Brand left the Clippers for a five-year, $80-million contract with Philadelphia on July 9.

"The guys found me in rhythm," said Brand, who made the game-winner against his former team in Friday's 89-88 victory over the Clippers. "It's the same shots I've been shooting all along."
