PHILADELPHIA (AP) _ Andrew Toney scored a season-high 32 points as the Philadelphia 76ers, leading twice by as many as 42 points, routed the Sacramento Kings 123-91 Friday night in the NBA.

Trailing 12-6 early in the first quarter, Philadelphia went on a 13-2 run, with Toney scoring 10 points. The Sixers led 25-8 with 2:53 left in the period, held a 62-40 halftime lead and built a 98-56 advantage with 28 seconds left in the third quarter on a Charles Barkley layup.

Barkley added 18 points and 17 rebounds for the 76ers, while Roy Hinson and Maurice Cheeks had 17 apiece. Cheeks added 11 assists as the 76ers won their third straight game.

Reggie Theus had 22 points to lead the Kings, and Otis Thorpe added 20.

Toney’s 32-point performance came on the heels of a 27-point game Wednesday against Golden State. The bulk of his scoring came in the first and third periods, when the guard connected for all but one of his points.
