The Wizards let one slip away tonight as a 16 point lead evaporated in the fourth quarter and the Bobcats came back to win 100-94. Washington could've clinched a playoff spot with a win but will have to wait. The Wizards scored just four points in the final 6:50 of the game as the Bobcats closed the game on a 19-4 run. The second quarter was the one which saw the Wizards take a big lead, as they played one of their best quarters of the entire season scoring 40 points on 75% shooting. But they couldn't make it stand up. Bead led six Wizards in double figures with 20 points on 8/12 shooting while Webster had 14 and Gooden scored 12. For the Bobcats, Kemba Walker had 21, Al Jefferson had 19 and 11 and Chris Douglas-Roberts came off the bench to score 18.

Key Moment

With just under four to play and the Wizards once double-digit lead having slipped to just one, Al Jefferson took over. First Jefferson got his own board for a tough putback to give the Bobcats their first lead of the second half. After that, he hit a tough 17 footer to put the Bobcats up three and the Bobcats would never lose the lead.

Player of the Game

Chris Douglas-Roberts only averages six points a game but he tripled that in this one. He came off the bench to score 18 on 7/9 shooting in his 28 minutes, with eight of them coming in the fourth quarter.

Key Number

29-9. The Bobcats hit 20 more free throws than the Wizards in the contest.

Unsung Hero

Andre Miller was very effective, especially in the second quarter. He finished with eight dimes in his 19 minutes and was a game-high +18.
