Story body

CHARLOTTE (AP) -- Derek Anderson had 24 points and ten assists and the Charlotte Bobcats snapped an eight-game losing streak with a 119-to-108 win over the struggling Orlando Magic.

Raymond Felton added 21 points and Gerald Wallace had 20 points and nine assists for the Bobcats, who had a team-record 14 3-pointers and 39 assists.

Charlotte, which came in with the third-worst record in the NBA, had its way with the Magic. Orlando has lost three straight and ten of 12 and has a 16-and-32 record.

Dwight Howard had 26 points and eleven rebounds for the Magic, but 13 of his points came in the fourth quarter when the game was decided. Hedo Turkoglu added 23 points.

Charlotte played its eighth straight game without leading scorer and rebounder Emeka Okafor, who is injured.
