Recap: Charlotte vs. Orlando

Charlotte, NC (Sports Network) - Kemba Walker and Gerald Henderson scored 34 points apiece and led the Charlotte Bobcats to a 114-108 win over the Orlando Magic on Wednesday.

Walker shot 13-of-23 from the field and had nine assists and seven rebounds. Henderson was 12-of-18 from the floor and 9-of-10 from the foul line for the Bobcats, who snapped a two-game skid.

"I saw a lot of heart from our team, especially this time of the year when you have no shot at the playoffs," said Bobcats coach Mike Dunlap. "Our whole theme has been to improve and left our fans and everyone know that we're still fully engaged."

Tobias Harris had a team-high 29 points and grabbed nine boards for the Magic, who have lost eight straight games. Kyle O'Quinn registered a double-double with 23 points and 11 rebounds, as did Jameer Nelson, who finished with 13 points and 11 assists. Maurice Harkless scored 18 points in the setback.

"We started off well against them and they weren't going early," said Magic coach Jacque Vaughn. "But it's a matter of continuing to focus. A big lesson is a 48-minute game is a long time. A lot can happen just within the last five minutes of a game. Your focus needs to be heightened and you need to continue to play for 48 minutes."

Orlando had a 58-51 lead at halftime.

The Magic extended their edge to as many as 11 points early in the third quarter, but the Bobcats took control for a 73-71 lead with 5:52 left.

Henderson was a major factor in Charlotte obtaining the lead, scoring 15 points in the frame.

Entering the fourth quarter, the Bobcats had an 83-82 edge.

The Magic began the fourth with five unanswered points and retained the lead, 87-83, with 10:57 remaining and was in control for much of the quarter.

However, with 3:58 to play, Walker made an 18-foot jumper to start an 10-0 run to give Charlotte a 114-106 lead with just 10 seconds left.

The Magic never had answer and Charlotte was able to hold on for the win.

Harris and O'Quinn were efficient in the first quarter, scoring 12 and 10 points, respectively, as the Magic shot 69.6 percent from the field.

The Magic had a 39-20 advantage entering the second, but the team had trouble shooting in the period, scoring just 19 points on 36 percent shooting.

Meanwhile, the Bobcats slowly came back, scoring 31 points on 54.2 percent shooting. The team got within four on two occasions, but wasn't able to take the lead just yet.
