PHILADELPHIA — Thaddeus Young made the go-ahead 3-pointer with 3.2 seconds left to lift the Philadelphia 76ers to a 95-92 victory over the Charlotte Bobcats on Wednesday night.

Young hit the final big shot in a fourth quarter loaded with back-and-forth baskets, a contested jumper from the left of the arc off a feed from Michael-Carter Williams. Young scored 11 points and his winner was his only 3-pointer of the game. Charlotte's last-gasp shot was off the mark.

Spencer Hawes had 17 points, 14 rebounds and seven assists for the Sixers. Evan Turner scored 23 points.

Kemba Walker led the Bobcats with 26 points and Al Jefferson had 24.
