Lou Williams' layup with 3.1 seconds remaining lifted the Philadelphia 76ers to a come-from-behind 86-84 victory over the Charlotte Bobcats on Wednesday night.

Andre Iguodala scored 25 points, Williams had 19 and Elton Brand contributed season highs of 19 points, 11 rebounds and six blocked shots for the Sixers, who snapped a two-game losing streak. Rodney Carney had 10 points for Philadelphia.

With the score tied at 84, Boris Diaw missed a baseline jumper and Iguodala gathered the rebound. He dribbled to midcourt and passed to Williams for the layup on the fast break.

The Bobcats never got off a shot on their final possession.
