=== Charlotte Bobcats Team Report – November 17 ===

(Sports Network) – The Bobcats battled hard, but came up short in a 107-105
defeat to Utah on Tuesday night at Charlotte Coliseum.

Keith Bogans paced the Bobcats with 28 points off the bench. Eddie House had
17 and Gerald Wallace netted 16 for Charlotte, which is still in search of the
franchise’s first win at home.

Emeka Okafor contributed 13 points and hauled down eight rebounds for
Charlotte, which has also dropped four straight.

Utah, which never led until Raja Bell’s two free throws, trimmed an early 22-
point deficit in the second quarter to four points heading into the fourth.

In a tightly contested frame, Utah pulled within one on several occasions,
99-98 and then 105-104 after Bell drained a huge three from the corner with 18
seconds remaining in the game.

Utah had 15 fast break points, while the Bobcats scored six.

The Bobcats will try to get back on the winning track on Thursday against
Cleveland.
