The Charlotte Bobcats absolutely dominated the fourth quarter, outscoring the Detroit Pistons 41-17 en route to a 116-106 victory Friday night.
Kemba Walker had 34 points and seven rebounds, Al Jefferson scored 24 points and had 14 rebounds and Gerald Henderson poured in 22 points and grabbed eight rebounds for the Bobcats.
Brandon Jennings led the way for the Pistons with 26 points and five assists while Josh Smith added 18 points and Andre Drummond had 14 points, 15 rebounds and five blocks.
It was an absolute fourth quarter meltdown by the Pistons, who rallied from a similar deficit to defeat the Boston Celtics Wednesday night. The Pistons had a 20-point lead at one point and entered the fourth quarter up 89-75 before falling apart on both sides of the ball. The Bobcats started the final quarter on a 9-0 run and ended the game on a 24-9 run (it was a 24-6 run before Jennings put in a garbage time three-pointer at the buzzer).
The Bobcats are now 13-14 on the season while the Pistons are 13-15.
