Dec. 29, 2010 at 10:05 PM

CHARLOTTE, N.C., Dec. 29 (UPI) -- Stephen Jackson ignited Charlotte to a hot start Wednesday and the Bobcats held on for their second straight win, a 101-92 decision over Cleveland.

It is only the second time this season Charlotte has won back-to-back games and the brief streak has come after Larry Brown stepped down as coach and was replaced on an interim basis by Paul Silas.

Jackson scored 38 points and the Bobcats opened a 13-point lead after one period. D.J. Augustin added 28 points and Gerald Wallace had nine points and 10 rebounds.

Wallace had missed the previous five games with a sprained ankle.

Cleveland was led by 22 points off the bench from Ramon Sessions. Antawn Jamison had 18.

The Cavaliers have lost five in a row.
