Iguodala Lifts 76ers Past Bobcats 96-92 In OT
PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Andre Iguodala hit the go-ahead jumper with 37.6 seconds left in overtime, Thaddeus Young followed with a game-saving steal and the Philadelphia 76ers beat the Charlotte Bobcats 96-92 on Monday.
Iguodala’s pull-up jumper eased the sting of blowing a 12-point lead in the fourth quarter. Kwame Brown’s errant cross-court pass was intercepted by Young, and Evan Turner hit four free throws in the final 17 seconds for the Sixers.
Iguodala had 16 points and 10 rebounds, and Elton Brand added 13 points and 13 rebounds.
Boris Diaw had a triple-double for the Bobcats with 25 points, 11 assists and 11 rebounds.
Lou Williams, who led the Sixers with 23 points, sent the game into overtime after he hit a 3 with 4.7 seconds left to make it 86-86.
