The Bobcats outscored the Bucks 33-9 in the fourth quarter, opening the period with a 20-2 run sparked by Pargo's 10 points. Caron Butler led the Bucks with 18 points, but was ejected with 12.7 seconds left. He scored 12 points during a 21-8 run bridging the second and third quarters to help the Bucks build their biggest lead, 58-37. Bismack Biyombo grabbed 21 rebounds starting at center for Al Jefferson, who sprained his right ankle in the Bobcats' 86-75 loss to the Miami Heat on Friday. The Bucks (0-3) were without Ekpe Udoh, who is expected to be out four to six weeks after having surgery on his right knee Thursday.
