CHARLOTTE, N.C. — A quieter Stephen Jackson scored 25 points, Boris Diaw added a career-best 16 rebounds and the Charlotte Bobcats recovered from a fourth-quarter meltdown to beat the weary New Jersey Nets 91-84 in overtime Friday night.
After the Bobcats blew a seven-point lead with just over a minute left in regulation, Jackson hit four straight free throws in the final 31 seconds of OT. It came in his return from a one-game suspension for berating officials and hours after he sent a letter apologizing to fans.
Travis Outlaw scored 21 points and hit two free throws to force OT and Charlotte native Anthony Morrow added 19 for the Nets, who were without injured Devin Harris.
New Jersey has lost three straight, playing four OT periods in its last two games.
