Recap: Charlotte vs. Indiana

Charlotte, NC (SportsNetwork.com) - Al Jefferson poured in 34 points and six Bobcats reached double figures in Charlotte's stunning 109-87 rout of the Indiana Pacers on Wednesday.

Kemba Walker donated 19 points and nine assists, while Chris Douglas-Roberts and Josh McRoberts added 12 apiece to help Charlotte snap a three-game losing skid.

The Pacers shot just 40.8 percent in losing their second straight game for just the second time this season. Evan Turner led the way with 22 points off the bench, while leading scorer and All-Star starter Paul George netted a season-low two points on 0-for-9 from the field.

Douglas-Roberts, starting in place of an injured Gerald Henderson, set the tone for Charlotte on its first possession with a corner 3-ball. McRoberts capped a 9-2 start with a dunk at 8:20, prompting an early Indiana timeout.

Jefferson made all six of his shots for 12 points, while the Pacers hit just 4-of-20 in the period. Charlotte owned a 28-8 edge after the first.

Indiana found its groove early in the second, with George Hill, Lance Stephenson and Turner leading the charge. The trio combined for an 11-1 run to open the frame, with Hill's floater trimming the deficit to single digits at 8:13.

Roy Hibbert's late jumper had Indiana within 41-38, but the Bobcats netted the final six points of the half to keep momentum heading into the locker room.

The third period, like the first, belonged to the home team. Walker's 3- pointer near the midway point made it 60-42, and his dish to Anthony Tolliver for a catch-and-shoot triple from the right wing with a minute left extended the margin to 71-52.

The Pacers never threatened in the final frame.
