So with about four minutes left in the fourth quarter of this game I was preparing a recap of this game that had a theme somewhat similar to the following: Moral victories might not be the best thing for the Bobcats, right now, but they’re playing well and they’re keeping themselves in every game.

Yeah. Scratch that.

The Charlotte Bobcats beat the Milwaukee Bucks Monday night, because of a very clutch fourth quarter performance.

Kemba Walker had 19 points on six-of-13 shooting, Byron Mullens had a great game with 19 points on 50 percent shooting and nine rebounds, and Ramon Sessions came off the bench to save the day with 23 points and four assists.

One huge reason the Bobcats have been winning this year is because they’ve been getting to the free-throw line and making those free shots. Monday night they got there 30 times and converted on 27 of them. That made up for a 43 percent shooting night (not bad but:) and a 47 percent shooting night from the Bucks.

Charlotte also out-rebounded the Bucks 44-39 behind Mullens’ and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist’s combined 18 boards and Brendan Haywood’s 11.

Monta Ellis led all scorers with 31 points, but missed a wide open three that would’ve put his team on top 101-100 with five seconds left.

Brandon Jennings scored just 10 points on 18 shots and Mike Dunleavy was the only other Milwaukee player in double digits with 16 points.

The Bobcats will take on the Toronto Raptors Wednesday at 7 pm in the Cable Box.
