Bobcats kick off homestand with sound win over Wolves

CHARLOTTE (NBA.com exclusive) -- Stephen Jackson knows how to play through pain and it shows.

Jackson, the team's leading scorer, scored 37 points to lead the Charlotte Bobcats to a 108-95 victory over the struggling Minnesota Timberwolves Wednesday at Time Warner Cable Arena.

"We were phenomenal in the second half," Bobcats coach Larry Brown said. "We did a lot of good things tonight that generated scoring opportunities and we shot over 50 percent. We got a great win"

Jackson has played with a bruised ligament in the top knuckle of his left index finger over the last few games. The 37-point outburst was his first 30-point game since a road win over Memphis on February 26. In addition, Jackson was 15-for-24 from the floor.

"[My finger's] okay," Jackson said. "It ain't going to get better until the season is over with. It's just something I'm going to have to deal with. I'm finally starting to hit some shots and get my rhythm back. It's really been difficult on defense because I can't be as aggressive with it. I'm going to find a way to get through it."

Charlotte is now in a tie with Miami for sixth place in the Eastern Conference with just 11 games to play and 2 games behind Milwaukee for fifth place.

The Bobcats opened a key five-game home stand Wednesday. The team also hosts Washington, Toronto, Philadelphia and Milwaukee during that stretch which could have significant playoff implications.

"This is a homestand that can pretty much determine whether we're in or we're out [of the playoffs]," Gerald Wallace said. "These are the games that we've got to win. We've got to come out and be prepared each night."

The Bobcats blew the game open late in the second quarter. Charlotte trailed the Timberwolves 43-34 and then reeled of a 20-0 run. The run started with a Larry Hughes basket at the 6:39 mark and finished with 10 straight points from Wallace. The last coming on a layup with 1:05 left in the half and the Bobcats holding a 54-43 lead.

"It showed how aggressive we are, how athletic we are, how we're able to get out in the open court, how we're able to make passes," Wallace said. "The last couple of minutes of the first half showed exactly what we can do when we turn up the pressure defensively."

The Bobcats continued to maintain their lead throughout the third quarter, allowing Minnesota to get as close as three midway through the third.

Wallace's alley-oop off a pass from DJ Augustin ignited the crowd and put the Bobcats ahead by its largest margin at the time, 93-79.

Charlotte cruised the final quarter to pick up their second consecutive victory.

"It was a good win coming off a poor performance in Washington," Jackson said. "To get this win tonight to start this homestand is a good feeling, but we still have to play better."

Charlotte is an impressive 26-8 at home this season and is currently riding a six-game winning streak at Time Warner Cable Arena.

Meanwhile the Timberwolves have lost 14 straight and are just 4-31 on the road. Kevin Love saw just 19 minutes of action for Minnesota and logged five points and nine rebounds.

"[Charlotte] did a good job," Kurt Rambis said. "They picked up their pressure and it disturbed our offense, it took us out of what we wanted to do."

Minnesota has not picked up a victory since a win over Miami on February 23 and are now 1-20 in their last 21.

"It's tough,"Corey Brewer said. "When teams are playing for playoff position they're coming at us and being really aggressive. We have to be able to handle the pressure."
