Jeff Teague had 14 points and 12 assists, while Cartier Martin chipped in with 16 points.

Josh McRoberts led the Bobcats (3-4) with 19 points and seven assists. Michael Kidd-Gilchrist had 16 points, but none in the second half.

Al Jefferson had 10 points and seven rebounds in his first game back from an ankle injury.
