Al Jefferson posted season highs with 23 points and 12 rebounds, and the Charlotte Bobcats handed the Milwaukee Bucks their 11th straight loss with a 92-76 victory on Friday night.
The dismal Bucks proved to be a perfect cure for the Bobcats' home woes. Charlotte had lost six of its past seven at home.
Jefferson, who signed a three-year, $41 million free agent contract this offseason, took over in the fourth quarter in the paint, scoring 13 points with three "and-one" opportunities.
Gerald Henderson scored 19 points and Bismack Biyombo had a season-high 14 rebounds. The Bobcats outrebounded the Bucks 54-37 and outscored them 44-26 in the paint.
Brandon Knight scored 17 points for the Bucks (2-13), who have lost seven straight games on the road.
