CHICAGO, Dec. 31 (UPI) -- Kemba Walker put in 18 points and Ben Gordon got hot down the stretch Monday, helping Charlotte snap an 18-game skid with a 91-81 win over Chicago.

Gordon scored six of his 15 points in the fourth quarter as the Bobcats pulled away and notched their first victory since a Nov. 24 double-overtime decision over Washington.

Gerald Henderson provided 16 points and Charlotte used a tough defense to limit the Bulls to 35.1 percent shooting from the floor in recording their eighth win of season -- surpassing their entire total from 2011-12.

Chicago, meanwhile, fell for the third time in four games.

Carlos Boozer (19 points, 14 rebounds) and Luol Deng (20, 12) paced the Bulls.
