PHILADELPHIA -- Brook Lopez and Jeremy Lin scored 16 points each as the fast-starting Brooklyn Nets routed the Philadelphia 76ers 141-118 on Tuesday night, extending their winning streak to a season-best three games.
Archie Goodwin and K.J. McDaniels notched 14 apiece and Brooklyn, the NBA's worst team at 19-59, established a floor record for points.
The Nets shot 64 percent from the floor and 51.6 percent from 3-point range -- both season highs.
It was Brooklyn's third-largest margin of victory this season, topped by a 143-114 defeat of New Orleans on Jan. 20 and a 126-98 victory over Phoenix on March 23.
Sean Kilpatrick scored all 13 of his points and Lopez added 12 in the first half, when the Nets established an 81-53 lead. It was Brooklyn's most points in a half this season as well as a floor record.
The Nets, who salvaged the last of four games in the teams' season series, shot 70 percent from the floor in the half and 70.6 percent from 3-point range. The 12 3-pointers were also a floor record for a half.
Philadelphia, which dropped its fourth straight, was led by Timothe Luwawu-Cabarrot with 19 points. Shawn Long had 18.
Brooklyn trailed only in the opening minutes, and established an 18-8 lead courtesy of a 13-2 spurt that included four points each by Lopez and Rondae Hollis-Jefferson, a native of nearby Chester, Pa.
By the end of the first quarter the Nets were up 40-27. It was their highest-scoring first period of the season, and the most allowed by the Sixers in a first quarter this year.
NOTES: The Nets signed G Archie Goodwin to a multiyear contract earlier in the day. Goodwin signed a 10-day contract March 15 and a second 10-day deal March 25 after a stint with Greensboro of the Development League. He is in his fourth NBA season and has previous experience with Phoenix and New Orleans. ... The Sixers took their team picture on the court before the game, and the only player absent was C Joel Embiid. A spokesman said he is still in California, rehabbing following March 24 surgery to repair a torn meniscus in his left knee. ... Philadelphia coach Brett Brown said F Dario Saric is suffering from plantar fasciitis in his left foot. The team had previously said he was plagued by a sore heel. Saric had 10 points in 19 minutes Tuesday. ... University of Washington G Markelle Fultz, who is expected to be among the top picks in the draft this summer, was in attendance. ... Brooklyn G Isaiah Whitehead was inactive because of a sprained left ankle. ... Brown and 76ers F Richaun Holmes were assessed technical fouls for arguing a non-call in the third quarter.
