76ers hold off Blazers immediate reaction thread

Howard Smith-USA TODAY Sports

The 76ers, who were up 6 to start the 4th quarter, held on to defeat the Blazers. During the game, the Sixers announced that Andrew Bynum would miss the remainder of the season with surgery on both knees.

The 76ers held on for a win against the Portland Trailblazers, winning 101-100. The 76ers were up 6 to begin the third, but the Blazers came back to take a lead late in the 4th before Jrue Holiday took control of the game offensively.

The Blazers made a valiant comeback late, hitting a pair of three pointers and forcing a turnover when Jrue Holiday tripped over Dorell Wright's feet on an inbounds play. But a turn around jump shot by LaMarcus Aldridge with 5 seconds left bounced off the rim.

Holiday, who ended up with 27 points, 8 rebounds, and 6 assists, scored 11 points in the final frame on an assortment of jumpers and drives to the lane.

Spencer Hawes chipped in with 18 points, 13 rebounds, and 4 assists, while Thaddeus Young continued his excellent play since coming back from his injury by adding 19 points and 5 rebounds.

During the game, the 76ers confirmed that Andrew Bynum would get surgery on both knees tomorrow and miss the remainder of the season.

The 76ers will begin a 4 game road trip Wednesday against the Clippers.
