All-Star Trae Young had 39 points and a career-high 18 assists to lead the Atlanta Hawks past Ben Simmons and Philadelphia 127-117 in the NBA, extending the 76ers' road woes.
Simmons scored 31 points to lead Philadelphia but it wasn't enough to improve their poor road record
Philadelphia, 22-2 at home, fell to 9-16 in away games.
The 76ers, who began the night tied with Indiana for fifth place in the Eastern Conference, held their last lead at 21-20 against the Hawks, who are last in the conference.
Philadelphia coach Brett Brown called a timeout early in the final period after Young's three-pointer gave Atlanta a 106-104 lead.
Apparently still unhappy with his team's defence, Brown called another timeout about one minute later after Young's floater pushed the lead to 14 points at 108-94, capping a 9-0 run.
After the 76ers scored seven straight points, Young's 18th assist set up Cam Reddish's three-pointer for a 115-101 lead.

Bradley Beal had 34 points, nine rebounds and nine assists after he was snubbed for an All-Star selection as the Washington Wizards beat the Charlotte Hornets 121-107.
Beal, who had been named to the All-Star Game the previous two years, failed to make the East team as a reserve in results that were revealed shortly before game time.
He was five for 10 from three-point range, and his fifth three came in the middle of a 13-0 run that gave Washington an 82-74 lead with 1:41 to play in the third quarter.
Beal also made 13 of 14 from the free-throw line and scored more than 30 for the fifth straight game.
Thomas Bryant scored 21 points, Isaiah Thomas had 18 and Troy Brown Jr. scored 12 for Washington, which began a six-game homestand.

Kyle Lowry added 23 points -- 14 in the third quarter -- for the Raptors, who completed a three-game sweep of the season series with the Cavaliers.
Norman Powell scored eight of his 16 points in the final 1:02 of the game for Toronto to help repel a Cleveland rally.
Gordon Hayward scored 25 points and the Boston Celtics earned their fifth victory in six games with a 119-104 win over the Golden State Warriors.
In the late games Denver Nuggets squeezed past Utah Jazz 106-100 while the Sacramento Kings were surprisingly too strong for the LA Clipper 124-103.
