Kemba Walker had 18 points and eight rebounds, and the Charlotte Bobcats ended an 18-game losing streak with a 91-81 win over the Chicago Bulls on Tuesday.

Gerald Henderson added 16 points and reserve Ben Gordon had 15 to help Charlotte end the second-longest skid in team history.

Chicago never led but rallied from 12 down in the third to tie it at 65 heading into the fourth quarter. The Bulls went ice cold from the floor as the Bobcats rattled off a 10-0 run to regain control in the final frame.

Carlos Boozer scored 19 points and pulled down 14 rebounds for Chicago, which has lost three of its last four. Luol Deng also had a double-double with 20 points and 12 boards.
