THE RESULT
The Bobcats put on a defensive display, holding Cleveland to 64 points as they rallied for a 68-64 victory over the Cavaliers on July 15, 2012 in Las Vegas. Kemba Walker led Charlotte with 13 points, and his floater over Dion Waiters with 6.4 seconds remaining gave the Cats the victory.

TURNING POINT
Trailing 62-56 with 1:40 remaining, a Charlotte defense that finished with 24 forced turnovers ratcheted up its intensity to pull out the win. Byron Mullens block of Tyler Zeller got things going as Bismack Biyombo converted a three-point play the hard way to cut the lead to three. A Kemba Walker steal on the Cavs ensuing possession then led to a 3-pointer from Jeffery Taylor to knot things up with 1:06 remaining. Walker then converted one of two free throws after another Cleveland turnover, before Dion Waiters gave the Cavs a 64-63 lead with 14 ticks left. Not to be denied, Walker hit the game-winning floater over Waiters with 6.4 on the clock and knocked down three free throws to seal the win.

INSIDE THE BOX SCORE
The Bobcats defense was solid all night, forcing 24 Cleveland turnovers that turned into 24 Charlotte points... The Cats outrebounded their opponent's on the offensive glass for the second-straight contest, 15-11, led by Jeffery Taylor's six offensive boards... Neither team shot the ball well, with Cleveland holding a 37.5 percent to 30.7 percent edge from the field. However, after hitting just four of their first 24 shots (16.6 percent), the Bobcats finished the game connecting on 19 of 51 (37.2 percent) from the field.
