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.
