    NBA Game Summary - Charlotte at Washington



    (Saturday, November 24th)

    Final Score: Charlotte 108, Washington 106 (2-OT)

    Washington, DC (Sports Network) - Byron Mullens scored a season-high 27 and Reggie Williams hit the go-ahead 3-pointer to lead the Charlotte Bobcats to a 108-106 double-overtime victory over the winless Washington Wizards on Saturday.

    Ramon Sessions added 21 points and Ben Gordon had 19 for the Bobcats (7-5), who have already matched their win total from last season.

    "It was a real tough game. It was a real gutsy win for us," Charlotte guard Kemba Walker said. "We just had to tough it out. We fought through the whole game and were able to come out with a win. That just shows the toughness of our team."

    Martell Webster dropped 21 points and Nene had 19 points for the Wizards, who are off to their worst start in franchise history. Washington (0-11) is the only team in the NBA without a win this season.

    "We were in positions where we could have taken advantage of a victory," Webster said. "But it didn't work out that way. We kept fighting but I know that time after time that gets old. We just have to win."

    Rookie Bradley Beal had 13 points, 10 rebounds and five assists in the setback. Chris Singleton tallied 13 points and 12 rebounds.

    The Wizards quickly took a 102-99 lead just over two minutes into the second overtime period. Jordan Crawford converted a free throw stemming from a Gordon technical foul, and Nene knocked down a fadeaway jumper, but Sessions' layup pulled the Bobcats back within 102-101.

    Chris Singleton was fouled, but made just 1-of-2 free throws, and the Wizards led 103-101. Williams, however, came back with a deep 3-pointer to give Charlotte a 104-103 lead with 1:18 remaining. It was Williams' only basket of the game.

    After the teams traded misses, Washington was forced to foul Sessions, who could only convert on 1-of-2 from the charity stripe, but a loose ball foul on Nene put Walker on the line and the second-year guard made both free throws.

    Beal sank a 3-pointer from the corner with 1.6 seconds left to make it a one- point game.

    Walker then split a pair of free throws, leaving the Wizards with one last chance, but Crawford's desperation heave wasn't even close and Charlotte held on for the win.

    Gordon buried a 3-pointer with 1:10 left in the first overtime period to put the Bobcats ahead 98-97.

    After missing a pair of jumpers, the Wizards were forced to foul Mullens with 1.6 seconds left. Mullens made just 1-of-2 free throws to Washington a shred of hope.

    The Wizards threw it in to Singleton who was fouled while attempting a potential game-winning 3-pointer, but knocked down just two the subsequent free throws to force double-overtime.

    Charlotte held a slim 25-24 lead after the first quarter, but Washington outscored the Bobcats 27-25 in the second frame to take a 51-50 lead into the break.

    Mulled scored eight points in the third to help the Bobcats tie the game entering the fourth.

    Charlotte led 92-89 with 1:50 left in regulation, but a Webster layup pulled the Wizards within 92-91.

    Webster was then fouled with 17.1 seconds left, but could only make 1-of-2 from the line, and Crawford couldn't knock down a basket at the buzzer.

    Game Notes

    Charlotte has won six of its last seven ... Mullens and Gordon went a combined 9-for-17 from the 3-point line ... Beal was the only Wizards' starter with a double-figure scoring effort.
