Charlotte, NC (SportsNetwork.com) – Kemba Walker made four 3-pointers, shot an
efficient 12-of-20 from the field and sank the clinching free throws to lift
the Charlotte Bobcats to a 95-91 victory over the struggling Brooklyn Nets.

The Bobcats caught the Nets at the right time in order to earn their first
win in the series since Apr. 11, 2011 — a span of seven consecutive losses.

They took advantage of Nets center Brook Lopez missing a third straight game
by owning a 52-34 advantage in paint.

To make matters worse for the Nets, Deron Williams reinjured his ankle late in
the second quarter when he stepped on Walker’s foot and never returned.

The result was Brooklyn’s sixth loss in its last seven games.

Walker led all scorers with 31 points while Gerald Henderson and Ramon
Sessions each chipped in 13 to help snap Charlotte’s two-game skid.

Andray Blatche went on a personal 8-0 run down the stretch to bring the Nets
within striking distance and finished with a team-high 25 points. Joe Johnson
and Alan Anderson put up 19 and 16 points, respectively, in the setback.
