|Bobcats Deal Bulls Second Straight Loss
|CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- Gerald Wallace scored 32 points, Stephen Jackson and Flip Murray added 25 each and the Charlotte Bobcats held off a late rally to beat the Chicago Bulls 113-108 Tuesday night for their third straight victory.
Derrick Rose and John Salmons missed game-tying 3-point attempts in the closing seconds for the Bulls, who gave up seventh place in the Eastern Conference to the Bobcats despite wiping out a 13-point second-quarter deficit.
Rose scored 10 of his 24 points in the fourth quarter and Salmons added 19 for the Bulls in the fast-paced game that saw both teams shoot 51 percent.
The Bobcats improved to 12-4 at home after consecutive road wins over Miami and Cleveland. But they had trouble putting away the Bulls, who dropped to 3-12 on the road.
