PHILADELPHIA (AP) -- Andre Iguodala had 14 points and 10 rebounds, and Jrue Holiday also scored 14 points to lead the Philadelphia 76ers to their fourth straight win, 97-62 over the Toronto Raptors on Saturday night.

Lou Williams scored 13 points, and rookie Nikola Vucevic had nine points and 10 rebounds for the Sixers. A year after starting 3-13, the Sixers are 5-2 and the early leaders in the Atlantic Division.

The Sixers blew the game open in the third quarter, using a 30-8 run to build a 25-point lead.

Elton Brand heard whistles from the crowd after he was forced to change jerseys on the court because of a rip on the back of his 42. Toronto's Amir Johnson yanked at the 4 and ripped the numeral right off.

Andre Bargnani had 21 points and 11 rebounds, and Johnson had 12 points and 14 rebounds for the Raptors.
