Final Score: Charlotte 88, Philadelphia 83
Charlotte, NC (Sports Network) - Gerald Henderson scored 24 points and
provided the go-ahead basket in the final minute in leading the Charlotte
Bobcats to an 88-83 victory over the Philadelphia 76ers.
Josh McRoberts added 12 points and 16 rebounds, and Kemba Walker netted 17
points with 10 assists as the Bobcats snapped a three-game slide.
Damien Wilkins paced the Sixers with 20 points, while Dorell Wright and Evan
Turner chipped in 14 apiece in the loss.
Jrue Holiday was an abominable 2-of-24 from the field for Philadelphia, which

"It was just one of those nights," Holiday said. "They played good defense
around the basket, but a lot of shots were just in and out."
With the score tied, 80-80, Walker dribbled into the paint and sent a lob to
McRoberts for a go-ahead slam with 1:36 remaining.
Holiday missed his 16th straight shot at the other end, but got his own
rebound and put in a layup to tie things again.
After Wright created a turnover, Wilkins made 1-of-2 at the foul line, only to
have Henderson answer with a jumper with 33.9 seconds to go. Henderson then
stole the inbounds pass from Turner and went in for an uncontested dunk,
before another Holiday miss essentially sealed the outcome.
"We're just trying to compete and finish the season right," Walker said.
The Sixers had 10 second-chance points in the first quarter, then scored the
first eight points of the second to take a healthy 35-19 lead.
