The Philadelphia 76ers got a 106-104 victory over Spanish club Bilbao Basket on Sunday when center Spencer Hawes made two free throws with four seconds remaining in the game.
This was the 76er's first European preseason game. Guard Evan Turner led the team with 25 points.
The 76ers lead Bilbao 55-50 at halftime but allowed the Spanish team to take the lead 80-79 going into the 4th quarter.
