NBA Game Summary - Charlotte at Milwaukee



(Sunday, March 16th)

Final Score: Charlotte 101, Milwaukee 92

Milwaukee, WI (SportsNetwork.com) - Kemba Walker scored 21 points with eight assists to help the Charlotte Bobcats take down the Milwaukee Bucks, 101-92, on Sunday.

Al Jefferson netted 20 points with seven rebounds and Gary Neal added 18 off the bench for Charlotte, which has won four straight.

Brandon Knight finished with 21 points for Milwaukee, who lost for the fourth time in a row. Ramon Sessions and Jeff Adrien scored 18 and 12 points, respectively, in the setback.

Knight's 3-pointer with seven minutes left in the fourth gave the Bucks an 85-83 lead, but the visitors responded with a 9-2 run that Jefferson capped with a hook shot at 5:04.

A John Henson hook shot cut the deficit to four, 94-90, with two minutes to play.

That's as close as the Bucks would get to snapping their losing skid as Walker answered with a jumper before Neal knocked in a jumper to give the Bobcats a comfortable cushion.

"We struggled to get stops in the fourth quarter and they stretched the lead out," Knight said.

Earlier, Sessions scored seven points during a 13-4 first quarter-ending run that staked the Bucks to a 28-23 lead after 12 minutes.

Charlotte won every quarter from there, but trailed 50-46 at the break before taking a 76-74 lead into the fourth.

"It was terrible out there. But we got going," Jefferson said of Charlotte's slow start.
