The Charlotte Bobcats recorded their first win in over a month after beating the Chicago Bulls 91-81 to halt their woeful run of 18 consecutive losses.

Charlotte, who set a team record of 23 consecutive defeats last season, just three short of equalling the all-time record, last picked up a win on 24 November against Washington. Kemba Walker scored 18 points in their victory, with Gerald Henderson adding a further 16.

Charlotte made the breakthrough in the final quarter, where they broke free from 65-65 with a 10-0 run.

"We just wanted to fight more than anything," Henderson said. "We were desperate."
