Last night’s game was a big test for the Philadelphia 76ers. They faced one of the most dangerous teams in the NBA, the Oklahoma City Thunder.

The Sixers fell 109-103 in a game where Kevin Durant and Russell Westbrook combined for 62 points.

The Sixers were outscored in the first three quarters and were playing from behind the whole game.

Jrue Holiday led the Sixers with 17 points, 11 assists, and 2 rebounds. Elton Brand added 17 points and 9 rebounds in the loss.

The Sixers couldn’t get the stops they needed down the stretch in the fourth quarter. This game can be a stepping stone as they played some solid basketball against one of the NBA’s premiere teams.

An encouraging sign is the play of rookie first round pick Evan Turner. Turner had 15 points and 8 rebounds against the Thunder.

Andre Iguodala did not play last night but is likely to play on Friday against the Dallas Mavericks.

**Louis Williams left the game with a left shoulder contusion and did not return.
