Cartier Martin tied a career high with 20 points in rs gold his second game under a 10-day contract, and the Washington Wizards built a big lead and held on to buy runescape accounts it for a change, breaking a five-game losing streak Friday night with a 97-76 win over the Philadelphia 76ers.

The loss knocked Philadelphia, at buy runescape gold least temporarily, out of first place in the Atlantic Division, pending the result of the Boston-Minnesota game later Friday. The 76ers began the day tied with the Celtics.

The Wizards had blown double-digit leads in their last three home games, but this time they didn't let up, playing with speed and hustle the entire game - not to mention 47 points from the bench. Former Maryland coach Gary Williams suggested earlier this week that perhaps, under a perfect scenario, Washington could lose a one-off game to Final Four school Kentucky, but not even an amateur roster full of future NBA first-round draft picks could have thwarted the Wizards on Friday.

The 76ers, meanwhile, have lost six of nine and are struggling to runescape gold. They had only 36 points at halftime and found themselves outhustled to most of the loose balls.

Washington lost the first three games of the series, never leading by more than six. ... The 76ers say C Spencer Hawes has had his restrictions lifted following his return from an Achilles injury. Hawes had been limited in his playing time in recent games, and he played only 17 minutes Friday night. ... 76ers coach Doug Collins doesn't hide the fact that he's scoreboard-watching this time of year: "We all like to say, 'Let's just take care of our business,' but it's like looking in our neighbor's window." ... The 76ers, who have the top scoring defense in the NBA, allowed 4,378 points through their first 50 games - a runescape accounts low since the shot-clock was introduced in 1954-55.
