Recap: Bobcats Continue Mastery Of Lakers, 109-89

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Gerald Wallace had 20 points and 11rebounds and the Charlotte Bobcats routed the Los Angeles Lakers 109-89 on Monday night to extend one of the more bizarre one-sided matchups in the NBA.

Gerald Henderson added 18 points for the Bobcats, who have won eight of the past 10 meetings with the defending NBA champions.

The Lakers have a winning record against every team except the Boston Celtics — and the Bobcats. And this time it wasn’t even close.

While Kobe Bryant scored 20 points, he missed 11 of his first 16 shots as he played despite an illness that kept him from shootaround.

Angry Lakers coach Phil Jackson used all but one full timeout before the fourth quarter, but couldn’t prevent the Lakers from their most lopsided loss of the season.
