CHARLOTTE (AP) — Gerald Wallace had 34 points and 14 rebounds to lead the Charlotte Bobcats to a 122-to-102 win over Washington tonight.
Walter Herrmann added 21 points, Emeka Okafor had 17 points and 13 rebounds, and Raymond Felton had 17 points and 14 assists for the Bobcats. Charlotte shot 57 percent and were never threatened in the second half.
Gilbert Arenas scored 33 points, but got little help as the Wizards lost for the fifth time in seven games.
Wallace couldn't be stopped on drives to the basket, Okafor dominated the inside and Herrmann was hitting open jumpers when he wasn't getting easy layups off back cuts.
Wallace shot 16-for-24 in his ninth game of 30 or more points. Herrmann, who barely played in the first four months of the season, had his third straight game of 20-plus points.
