NBA Game Summary - Charlotte at Golden State



(Friday, February 27th)

Final Score: Charlotte 112, Golden State 109

Oakland, CA (Sports Network) - Boris Diaw scored 22 and hit the go-ahead three-pointer with 2.9 seconds remaining as the Charlotte Bobcats earned a 112-109 win over the Golden State Warriors.

Raymond Felton had 26 points and nine assists for the Bobcats, who before Friday had lost all four previous meetings at Golden State. Emeka Okafor and Gerald Wallace each had double-doubles with Okafor totaling 15 points and 11 rebounds, while Wallace posted 14 points and 11 boards.

Vladimir Radmanovic scored 11 for the Bobcats, who have won back-to-back contests following a three-game skid.

Stephen Jackson had 33 points and eight assists for Golden State, which has lost two in a row after winning four of five. Corey Maggette had 20 points in defeat.

Andris Biedrins chipped in 18 points and 13 rebounds, while Kelenna Azubuike had 14 points for the Warriors.

Okafor went 1-of-2 at the foul line to tie the game at 107 with 20.8 seconds left, but then Diaw inexplicably fouled Jackson in the backcourt to the dismay of Bobcats head coach Larry Brown.

Jackson sank both foul shots with 18.8 seconds left, but the Bobcats used swift passing with Raja Bell shifting the ball from the right corner to the same wing for Diaw, who buried the shot from well beyond the arc.

"I wasn't going to force anything, but the ball was coming to me. Of course I was going to do something," said Diaw.

Jackson then misfired an inbounds pass and the Bobcats got the ball back. Felton made two free throws with 1.6 seconds left, and the ensuing inbounds pass was intercepted.

"I don't know what happened on the pass," said Warriors coach Don Nelson. "I actually thought we got Buike (Kelenna Azubuike) open on the play, but Jack (Stephen Jackson) thought he was going to zig and he zagged."

The Bobcats held a 25-24 edge after the opening quarter and were ahead 61-55 at the half before Golden State rallied with a 16-5 spurt to begin the third. C.J. Watson's three-point play capped the flurry.

Charlotte came right back, though, later in the third, finishing the quarter with a 13-2 push, grabbing an 89-86 edge moving to the fourth.
