The Sixers allowed the Bobcats to pull away in the 3rd quarter as they could not find away to slow down Charlotte's offense. Without MCW, the Sixers finished the game with only 4 steals, a number MCW can usually contribute by himself. Jeff Taylor played excellent as Kidd-Gilchrist's replacement and helped Charlotte pad their lead. Wroten also played well as a replacement, contributing in many categories by struggled from the foul line. The Sixers would drop their 8th straight on the road, losing 105-88.
Wroten ended up leading the Sixers with 21 points while adding 8 rebounds and dishing out 9 assists as he flirted with a triple-double. Turner finished with 16 points and 6 boards while Hawes added 10 points and 13 rebounds. Thad Young started out well, scoring 7 points in the 1st quarter but did not play well the rest of the game, finishing with only 9 points and 1 rebound. Lavoy Allen had a nice game off the bench, securing 10 rebounds and 8 points.
The Bobcats were led by 20 points from Jeff Taylor who also grabbed 8 rebounds. Kemba Walker had a double-double with 18 points and 10 assists. Henderson ended with 18 points and the big man Al Jefferson contributed 14 points and 12 boards. The Bobcats only committed 9 turnovers while the Sixers committed 15.
After this loss the Sixers fall to 1-8 on the road, only winning in Washington. Philadelphia plays the Denver Nuggets (11-8) Saturday night at home at the Wells Fargo Center where they've been much more competitive. They hope to improve their 7-13 record with a win.
