Charlotte couldn't capitalize on a dominant opening salvo in which they hit 10 of their first 12 shots, nor could they hold onto an eight-point half time lead, as the Sixers roared back to beat them 103-96. Andre Iguodala clinched the 17-point turnaround with a dunk seconds before the end of regulation. Iguodala finished with 33, the Charlotte Observer reports.
The Bobcats were plagued by missed opportunities to break the game open, going 1-for-11 directly after their lightning 20-point start. The final minutes of the third quarter proved particularly one-sided, as Philly surged to a 80-71 lead which they would never relinquish. Charlotte faltered, turning the ball over three times in their final six possessions of the period.
