Corey Maggette scored a season-high 29 points and the host Charlotte Bobcats erased a 20-point deficit to prevail 100-84 over the Orlando Magic.

Gerald Henderson added 16 points to help the NBA-worst Bobcats (5-31) halt an eight-game home skid and win for only the second time in 23 games.

Charlotte stormed back from an 18-point deficit after coach Paul Silas was ejected late in the first half and ended a string of 10 straight losses (postseason included) at the hands of Orlando.

Dwight Howard had 15 points and 17 rebounds and Ryan Anderson also had a double-double with 14 points and 11 rebounds for the Magic, who finished 13 of 35 on 3-point attempts.

Orlando had buried four quick 3-pointers to open the second quarter and build a 37-17 lead. The Magic led by 18 following the ejection of Silas with 3:53 left in the first half.

The Bobcats responded with a 22-1 blitz, closing the first half on a 14-1 run to cut the deficit to 48-43 before scoring the first eight points of the third quarter. Maggette had 12 points during the surge.

Orlando took its last lead at 79-77 on back-to-back 3-pointers by J.J. Redick and Chris Duhon, but Henderson and Maggette accounted for all the points in a 15-3 spurt as Charlotte took control.
