WASHINGTON (AP) -- Byron Mullens scored 27 points, Ramon Sessions had 20 and Ben Gordon added 19 as the Charlotte Bobcats earned their seventh win of the season and kept the Washington Wizards winless with a 108-106 double-overtime victory on Saturday night.
Last season, the Bobcats went 7-59 in the lockout-shortened season, the lowest winning percentage in NBA history, but have already equaled that victory total in their 12th game.
Washington fell to 0-11 despite the spark supplied by Nene, who energized the Wizards during most of his 29 minutes, but in the end, the Bobcats pulled out the win.
Martel Webster had 21 points for Washington and Nene scored 19.
Reggie Williams' 3-pointer, his only points of the game, gave Charlotte a 104-103 lead with 1:18 to play. The Wizards were called for a 24-second violation with 15.2 seconds left. Sessions made one free throw and Kemba Walker had two for a 107-103 lead.
Bradley Beal made a 3-pointer to draw Washington within 107-106 with...
BEST OF MAXIM
I’ll start off with a full confession: I didn’t see the second overtime of the Bobcats win against Washington, because I had recorded the game and only gave myself a half-hour buffer afterward. But even if I had been watching the game live I might not have seen it, because I probably would have passed [...]
Ted Leonsis continues to blog about sticking together and not making changes. Sometimes I see his blog posts as a slap to the fan, like we don’t know what the real problem with the organization is — the General Manager Ernie Grunfeld. The media knows it, the bloggers know it, and most importantly the fans know it. The only person at this time who doesn’t seem to know what needs...

WASHINGTON -- The Charlotte Bobcats have already matched last season's win total. The Washington Wizards are still seeking win number one after yet another painful, late game loss. Byron Mullens scored 20 of his 27 points after halftime and Reggie Williams atoned for a costly foul by drilling the go-ahead 3-pointer as the Bobcats clawed past the winless Wizards 108-106 in double...

His performance wasn’t as breathtaking for DC fans as it would be with RG3 per se, but at sub-100 percent health, Nene gave the Wizards every drop he had, and all but fulfilled his role as the Savior of the Sea Dogs. You can blame @kevinhine for that reference...
Shavlik Randolph was waived by the Washington Wizards during training camp in October.
Yeah...this is a nasty dunk by Taylor. Enjoy!It wasn’t supposed to happen this quickly. Every once in a while a team comes out of nowhere and forces the league to take notice. The Grizzlies have been perennial doormats of the Western Conference for example, and suddenly they’re the hottest team in the league. The Charlotte Bobcats, another team performing way above expectations...
I got a hard time from some fellow Bobcats enthusiasts this week for a gaffe on Charlotte’s winning streak. That was my bad. A few people also said I was over-reacting to the Bobcat’s 5-4 start. I disagree there. It was another narrow win, but the Bobcats got past the Toronto Raptors 98-97 on Wednesday [...]
Previously on That NBA Lottery Pick, we have shown you some classic clips from the folks over at Network of Champions.In this video, the folks over at the NOC hang out with Washington Wizards star guard John Wall as he tells of his rise from unknown prospect to NBA star:
The Charlotte Bobcats appear much improved on the heels of their historically woeful season.
The Washington Wizards, meanwhile, are currently stuck in their own forgettable futility.
Two teams headed in different directions meet Saturday night when the host Wizards look to end their worst start in franchise history against the surprising Bobcats.
Charlotte knows a little something...
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- Atlanta Hawks coach Larry Drew warned his team to take the Charlotte Bobcats seriously and forget all about their record last season.
It sure looked as if his players were listening.
Al Horford had 26 points and 13 rebounds, and the Atlanta Hawks beat the Charlotte Bobcats 101-91 on Friday night for their fourth consecutive victory.

By BILL KISER, Sports XchangeCHARLOTTE, N.C. -- Al Horford and Jeff Teague both had double-doubles as the Atlanta Hawks held off a late rally to beat the Charlotte Bobcats 101-91 on Friday night. Horford had 26 points and 13 rebounds, while Teague added 13 points and 12 assists for the Hawks (7-4), who won their fourth straight game despite seeing the Bobcats erase double-digit...
