November 23, 2009

Charlotte, N.C. — Nazr Mohammed scored 18 points, Boris Diaw had 17 and the Charlotte Bobcats beat the Indiana Pacers, 104-88, on Sunday to end a losing streak at seven games.

Rookie Derrick Brown scored a season-high 13 and Stephen Jackson had 10 in his first home game with Charlotte, helping the NBA's lowest-scoring team to its best offensive performance in weeks.

It spoiled Tyler Hansbrough's first professional game in North Carolina. With college coach Roy Williams sitting courtside, Hansbrough didn't get his first field goal until midway through the fourth quarter, when the Pacers were down by 20 points.

Dahntay Jones scored 19 points and Danny Granger had 18 for Indiana, which has lost three straight following a five-game winning streak.

The Bobcats finally showed some offensive rhythm, though it came from unlikely sources.
