THE RESULT
Gerald Henderson led the Bobcats with a season-high 30 points while Kemba Walker poured in 29 more, but the Cats couldn’t end the Bulls five-game winning streak, eventually losing, 103-97, on January 11 in the United Center.

TURNING POINTS
The Cats opened the third quarter shooting 2-for-10 from the field and were down by 15 after a driving lay up by Carlos Boozer. The Cats battled back and ended the frame on a 16-4 run to tie the game at 70-70… Charlotte saw its only lead early in the fourth quarter at 73-72 when Ramon Sessions dished an alley-oop to Josh McRoberts on a breakaway dunk. After that play, the Bulls rattled off 11 unanswered points and held off the Bobcats rally down the stretch.
