Walker, Bobcats defeat T-Wolves 89-87

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — Kemba Walker’s jumper with 0.7 seconds left lifted Charlotte over Minnesota.

Walker finished with 22 points, five assists and four rebounds, and his 19-footer over the outstretched arm of Alexey Shved helped the Bobcats to their first three-game winning streak since March 2011.

Byron Mullens had 12 points and 15 rebounds and Ramon Sessions scored 18 for Charlotte.

Andrei Kirilenko had 26 points and 12 rebounds for the depleted Timberwolves, who used a 16-2 run to tie the game with 12.3 seconds left.

The Wolves were without six of their top seven players: Kevin Love (broken right hand), Ricky Rubio (left knee), Chase Budinger (left knee), Nikola Pekovic (left ankle), JJ Barea (left foot) and Brandon Roy (right knee).
