CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- Kemba Walker and Al Jefferson each had a double-double and the Charlotte Bobcats rallied from an 11-point fourth-quarter deficit to defeat Washington 100-94 Monday night, preventing the Wizards from clinching their first playoff berth since 2008.

Walker finished with 21 points and 10 assists and Jefferson had 19 points and 11 rebounds despite needing seven stitches in the first half to close a gash above his right eye.

The Wizards came in looking to snap the third-longest playoff drought in the NBA, and led by 16 at the half and 11 with 9:13 left in the game.

But Walker scored nine points in the final quarter, helping the Bobcats pull within two games of the Washington in the race for the sixth seed in the Eastern Conference playoffs.
