NBA Preseason: Gordon, Bobcats Win Big Against 76ers

Ben Gordon scored 22 points off the bench and the Charlotte Bobcats routed the Philadelphia 76ers 110-84 in a preseason game Thursday.

Charlotte (3-2) won their third straight preseason game, after dropping the first two games.

Through five preseason games, the Bobcats have yet to allow an opponent to score at least 90 points. All of last season, including preseason, the Bobcats held teams to fewer than 90 points 11 times. They finished 29th in opponents points.

Gordon made all four of his three point attempts and shot 7 for 9 from the field to lead a rare high scoring Bobcats offense.

Kemba Walker and Jeffery Taylor had 13 points each, and the Bobcats shot 47% from the field.

First round pick Cody Zeller had 10 points off the bench.

The Bobcats scored 50 of their points in the paint and led by 30 points at the half.

Philadelphia (2-3) shot 37% from the field and committed 23 turnovers. Tony Wroten, acquired from the Memphis Grizzlies in the offseason, led the team with 20 points off the bench.

Rookie Michael-Carter Williams had 11 points, 5 rebounds and 5 assists. Vander Blue added 15 points.

Jason Richardson, Evan Turner, Thaddeus Young, and Spencer Hawes, four of the 76ers projected starters, did not play.

Charlotte will play their next preseason game Saturday from Greensboro Coliseum, when they host the Dallas Mavericks.
