               === 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.
 
 "I  don't  know what  they were thinking  when they both  ran to Mike (Carter-
 Williams) and I was kind of like wide-open," Young said of Charlotte's defense
 on his go-ahead triple.
 
 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   snapped   a  four-game  losing  streak  despite  committing  24
 turnovers.
 
 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 for  the Bobcats,  Ramon  Sessions scored  11
 off the bench and Josh McRoberts added 10 in defeat.
 
 Charlotte's  Gerald  Henderson  scored  just  eight  points  on  a  paltry  2-
 for-14 shooting.
 
 "It's  frustrating. It's  disappointing," Henderson  said of  dropping another
 tight  tilt. "You fight  hard to come back and you just can't come up with the
 plays to win the game."
 
 The  Bobcats led 30-24 early in the second quarter when Philadelphia went on a
 17-2  surge.  Elliot Williams  opened the run  with a pair  of free throws and
 Hawes  capped  it just over  four minutes  later with a  hook shot to help the
 Sixers to a 41-32 lead.
 
 Hawes  pushed the Sixers' margin to 11 following a layup with a minute left in
 the  half, and  Walker's three  concluded the  second-quarter scoring  and cut
 the deficit to 53-45 at the break.
 
 The  Sixers  held a  72-63 advantage  after a  Turner layup  with 2:01 left in
 the  third quarter, but the Bobcats bridged the third and fourth quarters with
 a 17-3 run to help them to their first lead since the second quarter.
 
 Sessions  scored  six points  during the sequence,  including the final bucket
 that capped the spurt and give the Bobcats an 80-75 lead with 6:52 to go.
 
 Turner  followed  with a three  before Carter-Williams  tied the game at 80-80
 with a running jumper midway through the fourth.
 
 The  game  was tied at 89-89  when Turner drove  and made a reverse layup with
 2:04  left. Sessions  cut the  deficit  in half  by  splitting a  pair at  the
 line with 1:16 to play.
 
 Carter-Williams  then  made 1-of-2 from  the line to  make it a two-point game
 again.
 
 Coming  out of a timeout, Walker made one of his patented step-back jumpers to
 tie  the game  at 92-92 with 15.4  seconds left and set up Young's last second
 heroics.
