CHARLOTTE, N.C., April 2 (UPI) -- Two free throws by Devin Brown with 20 seconds left Wednesday gave Cleveland a four-point lead en route to a 118-114 road win over Charlotte.

LeBron James led the Cavaliers with 29 points and Brown had 20 to go along with eight assists.

Cleveland won its second in a row and moved within five games of Orlando for the third spot in the Eastern Conference.

Emeka Okafor equaled a season's best with 25 points for Charlotte, losers of two straight. Jason Richardson led the Bobcats with 31.

The Cavaliers saw a late seven-point lead cut to two thanks to the long-range shooting of Richardson, but Brown's two free throws fought off the Charlotte comeback. Cleveland won the season series 3-1.
