Video: Sixers' Tony Wroten throws down poster dunk on Bobcats' Michael Kidd-Gilchrist

Sixers guard Tony Wroten threw down a poster dunk over Bobcats forward Michael Kidd-Gilchrist during Philadelphia's 95-92 home victory on Wednesday.

With a little less than seven minutes remaining in the second quarter and the Sixers leading 34-32, Wroten attacked the paint hard from the left wing, easily finding a hole in the Bobcats' interior defense. Kidd-Gilchrist closed hard from the right wing in hopes of altering Wroten's line of attack, to no avail.

The 6-foot-5 Wroten took off from well outside the protected circle, dunking with his left hand as Kidd-Gilchrist contested the shot from his right side. This wasn't a pure, straight-on posterization, but the degree of difficulty level here was still substantial.

Wroten finished with nine points (on 4-for-10 shooting) and three rebounds in 18 minutes. Evan Turner led the Sixers with 23 points (on 10-for-19 shooting), seven rebounds and four assists. Michael Carter-Williams added 20 points (on 8-for-15 shooting), eight rebounds and seven assists.

Kemba Walker paced the Bobcats with a game-high 26 points (on 9-for-21 shooting), eight assists and five rebounds. Al Jefferson added 24 points (on 11-for-20 shooting), eight rebounds and four assists in a losing effort.

Philadelphia improved to 13-25 with the win. Charlotte dropped to 16-24 with the loss.
