MINNEAPOLIS, Feb. 10 (UPI) -- Nazr Mohammed dunked home an offensive rebound with 5 seconds to play Wednesday, delivering Charlotte a 93-92 victory over Minnesota.

The Timberwolves rallied from a 19-point deficit late in the first half and held a three-point lead heading into the final minute.

Boris Diaw, however, brought the Bobcats within a point by making a layup with 50 seconds left and Charlotte regained the ball after a miss by Ryan Gomes.

Diaw tried a jumper that would have given Charlotte the lead and although it failed to go, Mohammed was there to grab the rebound and score the winning basket. Wayne Ellington missed a 3-point attempt for Minnesota at the buzzer.

Charlotte won its second straight after dropping three in a row. The Bobcats were led by Stephen Jackson with 33 points and Mohammed with 21.

Al Jefferson had 19 to pace the Timberwolves, who have lost two consecutive contests following a four-game winning streak.
