Andre Iguodala scored 30 points and Andre Miller had 23 to help the Philadelphia 76ers wrap up their first playoff spot in three years with a 109-104 victory over the Atlanta Hawks on Friday night. Philadelphia, which stopped the Hawks' five-game winning streak, never trailed after Miller's layup made tied it at 67 with 3:09 left in the third.

Iguodala, who hit a 3-pointer in the final second of the third to make it 77-74, came within three of his season high. The Sixers have won two straight and 21 of 28. The teams will play again Saturday in Philadelphia, where the Sixers are 13-2 in the second game of back-to-backs. (Read more basketball stories.)
