With his Charlotte Bobcats trying to get closer to an Eastern Conference playoff spot, former 76ers coach Larry Brown brought them to the Wachovia Center last night to face one of his old teams. It did not go well for the hosts. Charlotte, which had let a 20-point lead get away in a two-point loss to Washington on Wednesday, recovered from that tough outcome to hand the Sixers a 100-95 defeat. It was a night when the Sixers just couldn't generate much offense early, and it was an uphill battle all the way. But when guard Lou Williams drove to the hoop and converted a three-point play with 1 minute, 49 seconds remaining, the Sixers were within 94-90 and hope was alive.

Carmelo Anthony didn't care for the color of the removable splint he was sporting on his broken right hand, preferring it to be Denver Nuggets blue over bright red. The Nuggets All-Star guard will be out at least 3 weeks after breaking a bone in his shooting hand in a victory over the Indiana Pacers on Monday night. "I'm going to make this time the best time I can, just by rehabbing," Anthony said. "I'm surprised, a little bit frustrated I've got to sit out. " Anthony's hand hurt so much that he asked teammate J.R. Smith to hike up an elbow sleeve on his right arm, drawing a bewildered look from Smith.
