Two nights after being hammered by the Indiana Pacers, the Sixers posted a 106-101 victory over the Nets on March 28 at the Barclays Center.

Covington, Saric, and Luwawu-Cabarrot led the charge before Holmes and McConnell helped to secure the victory from the foul line.

McConnell hit a pair of foul shots to give the Sixers a 104-101 lead with 53.5 seconds left. Then Holmes added two more with 7.0 seconds left, giving his team its five-point margin of victory.

But before that, it was the Covington and Saric show.

Saric scored 14 of his team-high 23 points in the first half. Covington had 21 points, a game-high 13 rebounds, one assist, two steals and two blocks. And Luwawu-Cabarrot scored 11 of his 17 points in the fourth quarter.
