NBA Roundup: Bobcats lose

Associated Press
The NBA Roundup …
CHARLOTTE ó Richard Hamilton scored 19 points and the Detroit Pistons concluded a wild day by beating the Charlotte Bobcats 101-83 Monday night, ensuring Allen Iverson will join an unbeaten team.
Playing short-handed hours after acquiring Iverson in a blockbuster deal with Denver, the balanced Pistons toyed with former coach Larry Brown’s new team, improving to 3-0 and perhaps showing Iverson that he’ll have plenty of scoring options when he takes over at point guard.
Rasheed Wallace added 15 points and four other players scored in double figures. Rodney Stuckey replaced the departed Chauncey Billups and had nine points and three assists filling in at the point for Detroit, which shot 50 percent.
Shannon Brown came off the bench to score 16 points, and Gerald Wallace had 15 points and 12 rebounds for Charlotte, which couldn’t build off Saturday’s win over Miami in the beginning of a week of reunions for the well-traveled Brown.
Playing again without forward Sean May, who is struggling with his weight and conditioning following knee surgery, the Bobcats couldn’t recover with their undersized lineup that included 6-foot-7 Jared Dudley at power forward. Held most of the time to one shot, the Bobcats were outrebounded 42-31.
Magic 96, Bulls 93
ORLANDO, Fla.ó Dwight Howard had 22 points and 15 rebounds to lead the Orlando Magic past the Chicago Bulls, 96-93.
Chicago’s Ben Gordon missed a fall-away jumper with 15 seconds left that would have tied the game and the ball was batted out of bounds off Chicago. Rashard Lewis made two of four free throws in the final 23 seconds before Andres Nocioni missed a leaning 3-pointer at the buzzer that would have send the game into overtime.
Lewis finished with 21 points and 11 rebounds. Drew Gooden led Chicago with 21 points. Nocioni added 20 and Gordon 17.
76ers 125, Kings 91
PHILADELPHIA ó Thaddeus Young scored 18 points, Lou Williams had 17 and the Philadelphia 76ers routed the winless Sacramento Kings 125-91.
Willie Green scored 16 points and Elton Brand had 15 for the Sixers, who were up 20 points at halftime.
Jason Thompson scored 17 points and Spencer Hawes had 15 for the Kings (0-4), who can’t wait to head home after a dreary season-opening road trip.
Grizzlies 90, Warriors 79
MEMPHIS, Tenn. ó Marc Gasol had 27 points and 16 rebounds to help the Memphis Grizzlies beat the Golden State Warriors 90-79.
Gasol went 9-for-11 from the field and the free-throw line for Memphis, which ended a seven-game skid in the series against Golden State. The rookie also blocked three shots.
Andris Biedrins had 16 points and 22 rebounds for Golden State. Stephen Jackson finished with 17 points and Corey Maggette scored 13 despite sitting out the second quarter with an injury
