CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Stephen Jackson scored 18 of his 29 points in the fourth quarter, including the go-ahead three-point play, and the Bobcats beat the Portland Trail Blazers 97-92 on Friday night to spoil Gerald Wallace's return to Charlotte.
In his first game back from a hamstring injury, Jackson finished one point shy of the team record for points in a quarter held by Wallace as Charlotte snapped a six-game losing streak.
The last original member of the seven-year-old franchise and its only All-Star, Wallace was traded last month for role players and draft picks, a move owner Michael Jordan said would give the Bobcats "flexibility."
Wallace had 13 points and nine rebounds, but fouled Jackson on his twisting layup to put Charlotte ahead to stay with 48 seconds left.
