CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- Charlie Villanueva scored 14 of his 18 points in the fourth quarter, including a go-ahead driving layup with 15 seconds left, and the Detroit Pistons defeated the Charlotte Bobcats 92-91 to snap a 10-game losing streak. Villanueva hit three 3-pointers in the final period to help the Pistons avoid their longest losing streak since 2010. Jason Maxiell added 14 points and Rodney Stuckey had 13 points and eight assists off the bench for the Pistons. Kemba Walker had 25 points and Bismack Biyombo had 10 rebounds and 10 rebounds to lead the Bobcats, who had their two-game winning streak snapped. The NBA-worst Bobcats had the ball and a chance to win the game with 14 seconds left, but Walker missed an off-balanced leaner in the lane and Josh McRoberts' reverse layup after an offensive rebound didn't fall as time expired.
