Bobcats end NBA losing run against Bulls

Date

Chicago Illinois

The Charlotte Bobcats ended their 18-game NBA losing streak with a 91-81 New Year's Eve triumph over the Chicago Bulls.

Kemba Walker scored 18 points and Charlotte dominated the fourth quarter, when they outscored the Bulls 26-16 to earn their first victory since a double-overtime triumph over the Washington Wizards on November 24.

The Bobcats notched their eighth victory of the season, meaning they surpassed their entire win total from their disastrous 7-59 campaign in 2011-'12.

Former Bull Ben Gordon scored six of his 15 points in the fourth quarter.

The Bobcats also displayed determined defence, limiting the Bulls to 35 per cent shooting from the floor.

Carlos Boozer scored 19 points and grabbed 14 rebounds for the Bulls but made just 7-of-18 attempts from the floor.

Luol Deng delivered 20 points and 12 rebounds but couldn't prevent the Bulls' third loss in four games.
