PHOENIX (AP) -- Jrue Holiday scored 25 points and the Philadelphia 76ers beat the Phoenix Suns 123-110 Wednesday night.

Evan Turner scored 23 points off the bench and Andres Nocioni finished with 22 points and 12 rebounds for the Sixers. Philadelphia was without Andre Iguodala, who missed his second straight game with tendinitis in his right Achilles' tendon.

Steve Nash had 23 points and 15 assists to lead Phoenix and Vince Carter added 18 points in his Suns debut. Carter has missed four straight games with a sore knee after he was acquired in a six-player deal on December 18.

Grant Hill added 17 points for the Suns, who have lost four straight, their longest losing streak in nearly a year.

The 76ers won for the second time in their last nine trips to Phoenix.
