Bobcats 102, Timberwolves 101

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- Gerald Henderson hit a 3-pointer from 25 feet with 4.6 seconds left to lift the Charlotte Bobcats to a 102-101 win over the Minnesota Timberwolves on Saturday night, snapping a 16-game home losing streak.

The Bobcats streak was stopped two short of the NBA record held by the 1993-94 Dallas Mavericks.

Kemba Walker led Charlotte with 25 points and Ramon Sessions finished with 23 as the Bobcats won at home for the first time since Nov. 21.

Luke Ridnour had 22 points, seven rebounds and seven assists to lead Minnesota, which has lost nine of 10.

Trailing by two, the Bobcats were struggling to get a shot off before the 24-second shot clock expired. A scramble ensued as the ball was knocked into the backcourt late in the possession.

Walker retrieved the ball and passed it ahead to Henderson on the left wing. He pump-faked to avoid a leaping Andrei Kirilenko and swished the 3-pointer.
