THADDEUS Young scored 25 points and Marreese Speights had a career-high 24 points to lift the Philadelphia 76ers to their third straight win, 108-91 over the Phoenix Suns yesterday.

Andre Iguodala scored 22 points and Samuel Dalembert grabbed 11 rebounds to help the Sixers move two games above .500 for the first time this season.

Amare Stoudemire shrugged off persistent trade rumors and scored 19 points for the Suns. Jason Richardson had 16 and Shaquille O'Neal grabbed 10 rebounds.

Speights led a charge in the second quarter that turned this one from a tight game into a fast 14-point lead for the Sixers.

Bobcats 94, Clippers 73

At Charlotte, North Carolina, Emeka Okafor had 19 points and 16 rebounds and Vladimir Radmanovic hit three fourth-quarter 3-pointers in his Charlotte debut as the Bobcats pulled away from the road-weary Los Angeles Clippers to snap a five-game losing streak.

Boris Diaw and Raymond Felton added 15 points apiece for the injury-riddled Bobcats, who depended on Radmanovic two days after he was acquired from the Los Angeles Lakers.

Despite not having practiced with his new team, Radmanovic hit two long jumpers in a 15-2 run that broke open a close game. He added another 3 to put Charlotte ahead 88-70 with 4 minutes left.

Zach Randolph had 20 points and 10 rebounds and Eric Gordon scored 17 for the Clippers, who fizzled in the fourth quarter in the finale of a seven-game road trip.

Grizzlies 85, Hornets 80

Hakim Warrick had 15 points and a season-high 14 rebounds, while Marc Gasol added 10 points and 10 rebounds for Memphis, which has won two straight and four of its last five.

Peja Stojakovic scored 23 points to lead the Hornets, who were without their top three players in Chris Paul, Tyson Chandler and David West. Paul and Chandler were out with injuries, while West was suspended for the game after his flagrant foul against Minnesota's Mike Miller on Sunday.

Bucks 124, Rockets 112

At Milwaukee, Charlie Villanueva scored 25 points, grabbed eight rebounds and sparked a big second-half run as Milwaukee snapped an eight-game losing streak against Houston.

Ramon Sessions scored 26 points and had seven assists, Richard Jefferson added 25 points and reserve Charlie Bell had 21 for the Bucks, who are missing three starters to injury and trying to stay competitive in the Eastern Conference.

Houston had won three of the previous four, but gave up more than 104 points in its fifth straight road game. Aaron Brooks scored a career-high 23 points.
