WASHINGTON – Byron Mullens scored 27 points, Ramon Sessions had 20 and Ben Gordon added 19 as the Charlotte Bobcats earned their seventh win of the season and kept the Washington Wizards winless with a 108-106 double-overtime victory Saturday night.
Last season, the Bobcats went 7-59 in the lockout-shortened season, the lowest winning percentage in NBA history, but have already equaled that victory total in their 12th game.
Washington fell to 0-11 despite the spark supplied by Nene, who energized the Wizards during most of his 29 minutes, but in the end, the Bobcats pulled out the win.
Martel Webster had 21 points for Washington and Nene scored 19.
Thunder 116, 76ers 109, OT: At Philadephia, Kevin Durant scored 37 points, Russell Westbrook had 30 and Oklahoma City beat Philadelphia.
Serge Ibaka added 18 points for the defending Western Conference champions, who’ve won nine of 11 to go to 10-4.
Thad Young had a season-high 29 points and career-high 15 rebounds, and Evan Turner scored 26 points for Philadelphia, which has lost two in a row after winning three straight.
Trailing most of the game, the Sixers tied it at 94 on a dunk by Young off an underneath pass by Turner with 5:01 left.
Hawks 104, Clippers 93: At Atlanta, Jeff Teague had 19 points and 11 assists, Zaza Pachulia added 19 points and 12 rebounds, and Atlanta won its fifth straight game.
Blake Griffin scored 22 points and Chris Paul had 19 for Los Angelese.
Los Angeles has lost a season-high three consecutive games after winning six in a row.
Lou Williams finished with 18 points and Josh Smith added 17 for Atlanta.
One night after managing season lows in points and field-goal percentage in an 86-76 loss at Brooklyn, the Clippers shot just 42.7 percent from the field. They began the game with the NBA’s third-best shooting percentage, but ended a four-game road trip with just one victory.
Heat 110, Cavaliers 108: At Miami, Ray Allen took a pass from LeBron James and made a 3-pointer with 18.2 seconds left, and Miami rallied from a seven-point deficit in the final 1:52 to beat Cleveland.
James finished with 30 points for the Heat, who remained perfect at home despite leading for only 2 minutes, 29 seconds.
Chris Bosh scored 23 points, Dwyane Wade added 18 and Allen finished with 17 – 15 in the fourth quarter – for the Heat, who lost Shane Battier in the third quarter to a sprained right knee.
Cleveland had a good look at the lead, but Wade blocked Jeremy Pargo’s jumper with 3 seconds left, and Allen added one free throw to stretch the lead to two.
Cleveland controlled the rebound with 0.6 seconds left, but never got anything near the rim.
Lakers 115, Mavericks 89: At Dallas, Metta World Peace hit three early 3-pointers to spark a Los Angeles barrage from long range, and the Lakers scored 36 points before Kobe Bryant took his first shot in a blowout of Dallas.
Bryant, the league’s leading scorer, finished with 19 once he did start shooting as the Lakers hit the century mark for the first time in four games under hobbled coach Mike D’Antoni.
The Lakers won for the first time in five road games and avoided their worst start away from home in nearly 20 years.
