PHILADELPHIA -- Guard/forward Evan Turner had 22 points, 10 rebounds and five assists Friday night as the Philadelphia 76ers drubbed the Cleveland Cavaliers 94-79 in the homecoming of former 76ers center Andrew Bynum.
Backup guard Tony Wroten added 18 points for the 76ers (4-2), who rallied from a 14-point deficit after a quarter to snap a two-game losing streak.
Guard Dion Waiters, a Philadelphia native, scored 18 points to lead the Cavaliers (2-4), who shot just 33.3 percent from the floor, compared to 47.6 percent for Philadelphia.
Forward Tristan Thompson added 13 points and 15 rebounds for Cleveland.
Bynum, booed when he was introduced and every time he touched the ball, had four points and five rebounds in 17:46 off the bench. The 76ers acquired him in a four-team trade before the 2012-13 season, but he never played for them because of bad knees.
He signed with Cleveland as a free agent in the offseason.
Wroten scored nine of his points in the second quarter, when the Sixers outscored the Cavs 30-14 to climb out of the 28-14 hole in which they found themselves after one. Turner added 12 in in the third, when Philadelphia outscored Cleveland 33-19 to extend its 44-42 halftime lead to 77-61.
Thaddeus Young added 16 points for the Sixers, and James Anderson had 11.
Jarrett Jack and C.J. Miles also scored 13 points for the Cavaliers, but top scorer Kyrie Irving was limited to 10 on 4-for-17 shooting.
NOTES: 76ers coach Brett Brown, a former San Antonio assistant, has vivid memories of Cavaliers C Andrew Bynum, from Bynum's days with the Lakers. "He's a very unique player," Brown said. "In his healthy days he was legit. ... How many people require a double-team now? And he was one of them." But when asked how close Bynum is to what he used to be, Brown smiled and said, "I don't really know." ... Cleveland coach Mike Brown said he was "excited" to return this year to the Cavaliers, the same club he coached for five years, ending in 2010. He called it "a first-class organization" and "a young team with a lot of potential." ... The same two teams square off Saturday night in Cleveland, which Brett Brown said is "reminiscent of the playoffs." There are, he said, "subtle adjustments, and a little bit of a chess match." ... 76ers backup C Daniel Orton did not play because of a sore right knee, though Brett Brown said he hopes to have him Saturday. ... All the 76ers donned headbands at the beginning of the game, at the urging of C Spencer Hawes, though several quickly discarded them. "They give them to us for Veterans Day, so we might as well wear them, right?" said Hawes, who said the plan is to wear them Saturday, as well as on Veterans Day itself -- Monday -- when San Antonio visits the Wells Fargo Center.
