CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - Al Jefferson scored a season-high 26 points, Kemba Walker nearly had a triple double and the Charlotte Bobcats beat the Milwaukee Bucks 111-110 in overtime for their fourth victory in five games Monday night.

Jefferson was 12 of 23 from the field as the Bobcats (14-15) overcame an 18-point first half deficit.

Walker had 25 points, 10 assists and nine rebounds, and Anthony Tolliver had 12 points on four 3-pointers. Rookie Cody Zeller added a career-high 12 points.

It's the third time in the last four games the Bobcats have come back from at least 16 points down to win.

Brandon Knight had 26 points, 14 assists and eight rebounds to lead the Bucks (6-22).

The Bucks had a chance to tie in overtime, but officials ruled Khris Middleton's foot was on the line and his jumper counted as two points instead of three.
