Basketball: Charlotte Bobcats use balanced attack to stun Indiana Pacers 109-87

CHARLOTTE (AFP) - The Charlotte Bobcats snapped a three-game losing skid by stunning the high-flying Indiana Pacers 109-87 in Wednesday's National Basketball Association contest.

Al Jefferson finished with 34 points and Kemba Walker had 19 points and nine assists for the Bobcats, who held the Pacers to just 40.8 shooting from the field. Chris Douglas-Roberts and Josh McRoberts added 12 apiece, as six Bobcats players reached double figures in scoring in front of a crowd of 15,372.

The Pacers dropped their second straight game for as many times this season, as All-Star Paul George scored a season-low two points and shot a dismal zero-for-nine from the field.

George's previous low was eight points on two-of-14 shooting in a win over the Washington Wizards on Jan 10. Evan Turner came off the bench to score 22 points for Indiana, who still hold the NBA's best win-loss record at 46-15.
