Young delivers late as Sixers edge Bobcats

Philadelphia, PA (SportsNetwork.com) - Thaddeus Young's 3-pointer with 3.9 seconds left lifted the Philadelphia 76ers to a 95-92 win over the Charlotte Bobcats from Wells Fargo Center.

Michael Carter-Williams and Young ran a perfect pick-and-roll that saw Carter- Williams swing it back to Young on the wing, who buried the trey to give the Sixers the lead late.

Kemba Walker's game-tying attempt from the near corner was off the mark as time expired, and the Sixers continued their home dominance over Charlotte, winning their sixth consecutive game against the Bobcats in the City of Brotherly Love.

Philadelphia was victorious despite committing 24 turnovers in the win, which snapped a four-game losing streak.

Evan Turner paced the Sixers with 23 points to go along with seven rebounds, while Carter-Williams added 20 points, eight rebounds and seven assists.

Spencer Hawes recorded a double-double of 17 points and 14 rebounds and Young finished with 11 points on 4-of-11 shooting.

Walker led all scorers with 26 points and added eight assists for Charlotte, which dropped its fourth game in the last five.

Al Jefferson netted 24 points, Ramon Sessions scored 11 off the bench and Josh McRoberts added 10 in defeat.

Charlotte's Gerald Henderson scored eight points on a paltry 2-for-14 shooting.
