Brand breaks through for Sixers in win

Brand breaks through for Sixers in win

Jackson nearly erased a seven-point deficit single-handedly in the fourth quarter. He hit a tough jumper in the lane and then drained a 3-pointer to give Charlotte an 82-81 advantage with 2:09 left.

On the Bobcats' next possession, Diaw drove to the basket for a layup and an 84-81 lead with 1:49 remaining. Williams made two free throws to close within 84-83 with 52 seconds left. Iguodala then hit one of two free throws to tie the game at 84 with 30 seconds remaining.

Yet the Bobcats lost again.

"It's been the same problem all year with turnovers," Charlotte coach Larry Brown said.

Earlier in the fourth, Jackson hit a 3-pointer from the baseline and then converted two of three free throws after being fouled on a 3-point attempt on Charlotte's next possession. That cut a 77-70 deficit to 77-75 with 5:41 remaining.

Brand was in the starting lineup for the Sixers despite speculation over the past couple of days that he might be coming off the bench.

Two years ago, Brand signed a five-year, $80 million free agent contract. But he missed the majority of last season with a shoulder injury and he entered Wednesday's game with career-low averages in points (9.8) and rebounds (5.3). Brand has also been on the bench in the fourth quarter six of the last seven games before this one.

Iguodala led four Sixers in double figures as they held a 52-43 advantage at halftime.

NOTES: Charlotte C Tyson Chandler suffered lower back spasms in the second quarter and sat out the entire second half. ... Bobcats coach Larry Brown said he hopes guard Allen Iverson lands with another team. Iverson, was waived by the Memphis Grizzlies earlier this week, took the Sixers to the NBA finals in 2001. "I don't want to see him end his career this way," Brown said. ... Charlotte was whistled for three shot-clock violations in the first half. ... Eagles wide receiver DeSean Jackson attended the game
