LOS ANGELES (AP) - Thaddeus Young scored seven of his 25 points in the fourth quarter, Evan Turner added 22 points, and the Philadelphia 76ers snapped their 13-game road losing streak with a 111-104 victory over the Los Angeles Lakers on Sunday night.

Spencer Hawes had 19 points and eight rebounds for the Sixers, who hadn't won away from Philadelphia since their road opener on Nov. 1.

Young and Michael Carter-Williams contributed big points down the stretch as the last-place Sixers held on for just their second win in 11 games overall.

Nick Young scored 26 points on 6-for-21 shooting in the Lakers' fifth consecutive loss. Los Angeles also has lost five of six at Staples Center, winning just once at home since Nov. 24.

Philadelphia went up 104-99 with 1:44 to play on a layup by Thaddeus Young, who added a three-point play on the next possession.

Jordan Farmar's 3-pointer with 55 seconds left cut the Sixers' lead to three points, but Shawne Williams missed an open 3-pointer that could have tied it, and Carter-Williams hit two late free throws to secure Philadelphia's second straight road win over the Lakers.

Pau Gasol missed his second straight game with a respiratory infection for the Lakers, who already were without Kobe Bryant, Steve Nash and Steve Blake. Chris Kaman suited up despite limited movement on his injured ankle, and Jordan Hill contributed 18 points and 13 rebounds while starting at center.

Los Angeles then lost swingman Xavier Henry to a strained right knee in the first quarter. Henry, who filled in at point guard while Bryant and the Lakers' top three point guards were injured, played just 4 1/2 scoreless minutes before limping to the locker room.

Jodie Meeks scored 15 points as the Lakers used their 16th starting lineup in 31 games, including seven straight games with a new starting five since Bryant broke a bone near his knee.

Henry will have an MRI exam Monday. In his absence, recent D-League call-up Kendall Marshall stepped in as Farmar's backup at point guard, contributing eight points and three assists.

Two days after the Lakers lost to Utah, the Western Conference's last-place team, Los Angeles lost to another one of the NBA's worst.

Both teams lost healthy leads in the first half, but Philadelphia jumped to a 13-point lead late in the third quarter with 11 points from Hawes. Los Angeles chipped away and eventually took the lead with 7:07 to play on Robert Sacre's three-point play.

NOTES: After the Sixers missed nine of their first 10 shots in the first quarter, the Lakers promptly missed nine of their next 10. ... Young spent last season with Philadelphia, averaging 10.6 points while largely coming off the bench. He left as a free agent to join his favorite boyhood team in his native Los Angeles. ... The Lakers are one of just four Western Conference teams with a losing record at home.
