Jodie Meeks filled in well starting in place of injured guard Andre Iguodala, scoring a career-high 31 points on 7- of-10 shooting from beyond the arc to help the 76ers earn a 103-85 victory over the Cavaliers at Wells Fargo Center on Tuesday.

Jrue Holiday poured in 19 points and handed out six assists, while Lou Williams filled the stat sheet off the bench with 11 points, seven rebounds and seven assists to give Philadelphia a slim 1/2 game lead over the idle Boston Celtics for first in the Atlantic Division.

Anthony Parker scored a team-high 14 points, Alonzo Gee and Antawn Jamison tallied 13 apiece and Kyrie Irving added 12 points and seven assists for the Cavaliers, who have dropped four straight contests.
