Final Score: Charlotte 123, Philadelphia 93

Philadelphia, PA (SportsNetwork.com) - Al Jefferson continued his dominating play with 25 points and 10 rebounds as the Charlotte Bobcats pounded the Philadelphia 76ers, 123-93, on Wednesday.

Michael Carter-Williams had 22 points seven rebounds and Henry Sims added 15 points and six boards for the Sixers, who have dropped two straight since snapping their 26-game losing streak on Saturday.

"I respect the route that program has taken to end up where it is," Brett Brown said of the Bobcats. "It was a good example for our guys. That is a team that is going to the playoffs. That is a team that competes and executes."

"They scored at a far greater level than we expected," Brown said.
