Bobcats Snap Losing Streak, Demolish Pacers

Last updated on Monday, November 23, 2009

(CHARLOTTE, NC) - The Indiana Pacers fell back below .500 as they lost to the Charlotte Bobcats 104-88 in Charlotte.

Nazr Mohammed led the six Bobcats in double figures with 18 points with Boris Diaw adding 17 points.

Rookie Derrick Brown scored a career-high 13 points and former Pacer Stephen Jackson finished with ten points in his first game in Charlotte since last week's trade that brought him to the Bobcats from Golden State.

The Pacers were led by Dahntay Jones' 19 points with Danny Granger finishing with 18 points on an off-shooting night.

Granger hit just five of his 14 shots from the field as the Pacers dropped their third game in a row.

Tyler Hansbrough scored just eight points and grabbed six rebounds in his first appearance as a pro in North Carolina.

Jeff Foster was held scoreless in eight minutes of action as he returned after missing more than three weeks with a high ankle sprain.

Charlotte snapped a seven-game losing streak to improve to 4-9 while Indiana falls to 5-6.

The Pacers are back home on Wednesday night as they host the Los Angeles Clippers.
