In the Sixers’ first meeting with the Bobcats this month, a 123-93 loss on April 2 at Wells Fargo Center, Charlotte center Al Jefferson was the difference, finishing with 25 points on 19 shots to go along with 10 rebounds. Saturday night at Time Warner Cable Arena, the story was the same, as Jefferson contributed 29 points (13/19 FG) and 12 boards to a 111-105 Charlotte win over Philadelphia. 

The Sixers were able to fight back from 16 down in the fourth quarter to make it a four-point game with 1:40 left, but they couldn’t overcome the deficit.

Philadelphia was led by Michael Carter-Williams, who finished with 23 points (7/11 FG, 9/10 FT), eight assists, and seven rebounds. Henry Sims contributed 15 points (5/8 FG) and six rebounds, and Byron Mullens came off the bench to add 13 points (6/12 FG) and seven rebounds in 20 minutes of action.

The Sixers return to action Monday for their final home game of the 2013-14 season. They’ll host the division rival Boston Celtics in that game.
