Bobcats-Sixers: Guards Lead Charlotte Past Philadelphia

David W. WaltersCorrespondent INovember 24, 2008

Raymond Felton and D.J. Augustin led the Bobcats (4-9) to a 93-84 win over the 76ers (7-7) at Time Warner Cable Arena on Monday night.  The Bobcats' starting guards and reserve Adam Morrison led a charge in the fourth quarter to increase their lead to as much as 10 points.

Felton had totals of 23 points, seven rebounds, and five assists while rookie guard Augustin had 25 points, five rebounds, and a career-high 11 assists to continue his strong play since becoming a starter.  The Bobcats have begun to play better, despite the absence of their leading scorer, Jason Richardson.

Gerald Wallace had 11 points and six rebounds for Charlotte and Emeka Okafor had eight points, nine rebounds, and three blocks.  The Bobcats got a boost off the bench from Morrison, who had 10 points, including a big three-pointer down the stretch that put the Bobcats up for good.

Elton Brand led the Sixers with 18 points and nine rebounds and Andre Iguodala chipped in 17 points and five steals.  Lou Williams came off the bench to score 14 points.

The win snapped a four game losing skid for the Bobcats.

Game notes:  Richardson may return to practice this week…The Sixers shot an ugly 39.5 percent from the field while the Bobcats shot 54.8 percent...Bobcats forward Sean May and newly acquired center Dwayne Jones did not play.
