NBA playoffs 2019: 76ers deliver historic third quarter in Game 2 win over Nets

The 76ers delivered one of the best offensive 12 minutes in NBA history Monday.

Philadelphia tallied 51 points in the third quarter of their 145-123 win over the Nets in Game 2 of their opening-round playoff series at the Wells Fargo Center.

That ties the record for most points ever recorded in a single quarter in NBA postseason history. It’s also the highest-scoring third quarter by a single team ever in the playoffs.

Mike Scott helped the 76ers accomplish the feat by grabbing a rebound and finishing a floater before the buzzer.

Six 76ers reached double-figures, led by 23 points from Joel Embiid. Ben Simmons finished with a triple-double, tallying 18 points, 12 assists and 10 rebounds in the victory.

Spencer Dinwiddie recorded a team-high 19 points for the Nets in the losing effort.

The 76ers’ victory evened the series at 1-1. The two teams will meet again Thursday in Game 3 in Brooklyn.
