AUBURN HILLS, Mich., Dec. 20 (UPI) -- A season-best performance by Kemba Walker and a massive fourth quarter Friday brought Charlotte a 116-106 win over Detroit.

The Bobcats trailed by 14 points heading into the final period, but outscored the Pistons in that quarter 41-17.

Walker scored 34 points, three more than in any other game this season. He hit 12-of-17 from the floor and made all of his nine foul shots.

It was Charlotte's third straight victory.

Al Jefferson added 24 points, with 15 coming in the fourth quarter, and 14 rebounds. Gerald Henderson had 22 points for the Bobcats.

Brandon Jennings scored 26 points and was one of six Detroit players in double figures. The fourth-quarter collapse led to Detroit's sixth loss in its last eight home games.
