Held in check all night, Thaddeus Young delivered at the end.

Young's driving layup with 2 seconds left lifted Philadelphia to a 96-94 victory over the Orlando Magic on Friday night, giving the 76ers a surprising 2-1 lead in their Eastern Conference first-round series.

Game 4 of the best-of-seven series is Sunday night at the Wachovia Center. The Sixers, who stumbled into the playoffs with six losses in their last seven games and a 41-41 record, are two wins away from their first playoff series victory since Allen Iverson led them to the NBA finals in 2001.

Dwight Howard had 36 points for the Magic, who won 59 games during the regular season. Andre Iguodala led the Sixers with 29,
though he missed two free throws in the final minute.
