Bobcats brake skid

Tue., Jan. 1, 2013, midnight

Kemba Walker (at right in photo) had 18 points and eight rebounds, and the Charlotte Bobcats ended an 18-game losing streak with a 91-81 win over the host Chicago Bulls on Monday. Gerald Henderson added 16 points and reserve Ben Gordon had 15 to help Charlotte snap the second-longest skid in team history. It was the Bobcats’ first win in their last 10 road games. Luol Deng had 20 points and 12 rebounds for Chicago. Charlotte fended off several rallies by the Bulls, who never led, to win for the first time since Nov. 24. The new year couldn’t come quick enough for Charlotte (8-23), which narrowly avoided a 0-16 calendar month for the second time in 2012. The Bobcats went 0-16 in April to end last season on a franchise-worst 23-game losing streak. – AP
