Charlotte, NC (SportsNetwork.com) – Kemba Walker flirted with a triple-double,
scoring 25 points while dishing out 10 assists and grabbing nine rebounds to
help Charlotte escape with a 111-110 victory over the Milwaukee Bucks at Time
Warner Cable Arena.

The UConn product scored seven of the 10 Charlotte points in the extra period.
Al Jefferson tallied a season-high 26 points with nine rebounds for the
Bobcats, who have won four of their last five contests.

The Bobcats were up 109-108 when Walker missed a shot from the elbow to give
the ball back to Milwaukee with 25 seconds left. The Bucks struggled to find
an open shot out of the timeout before Khris Middleton missed a contested mid-
range jumper.

Walker stepped to the line with 1.6 ticks left in overtime and sank both free
throws to put Charlotte up 111-108.

Milwaukee thought that they tied the game after Middleton took a cross-court
inbound pass in the corner and nailed the shot, but his foot was on the line
and Charlotte escaped with a win.
