BUZZER BEATER: Sixers Evan Turner Ends Philly's Losing Ways For Now In Overtime

Philadelphia 76er fans have not had a lot to cheer about this season and coming into Friday night's game against the Brooklyn Nets had lost seven games in a row.

Evan Turner put an end to that losing streak with a buzzer beating layup that you swear tried not to go in the basket.  Lady luck was on the Sixers side.

Thanks CSN Philly

"It felt like it bounced 150 times, man. It was up there" Turner said.  "I was just thinking about my reaction if it didn’t go in and who I was going to punch, you know?"

Turner led the Sixers with 29 points and added 10 rebounds.

Philadelphia was determined to go to the basket aggressively during the game in that tactic payed off in the end with Turner's game winner.

That may also help the 76ers psychologically.

"We needed to get that win for the sanity of the group." Sixers head coach Brett Brown said.

It was an insane ending last night for Philly.
