PHILADELPHIA, Jan. 15 (UPI) -- Thaddeus Young hit a 3-point shot with 3.9 seconds to play Wednesday, boosting Philadelphia to a 95-92 victory over Charlotte.

The 76ers ended a four-game losing streak despite turning the ball over 24 times. Philadelphia made half its shots from the field, but missed 9-of-20 free throw attempts.

Evan Turner led Philadelphia with 23 points. Michael Carter-Williams added 20 points and Spencer Hawes had 17 to go with 14 rebounds.

Young's winning 3-pointer was one of four field goals he made for the entire game in 11 shots.

Walker delivered 26 points and eight assists in what was Charlotte's fourth loss in five games.
