A Bobcats win, or Knicks loss will clinch playoff berth for Charlotte
Bobcats Down Magic, Lower Magic Number to 1
By Mike Leslie, Sports Anchor/Digital Journalist - email
Kemba Walker tallied a triple-double, Al Jefferson had 29 points and 16 rebounds, and the Charlotte Bobcats cruised to a 91-80 win over the Orlando Magic.
With the win, the Bobcats move back to .500 on the year, and lower their magic number to clinch a playoff berth to just a single game. One Bobcats win or one Knicks loss will clinch a berth for the Bobcats.
Walker scored 13 points, had 10 rebounds, and tallied 10 assists to put up his triple-double. Jefferson had his double-double before halftime.
Meanwhile, the New York Knicks lost to the Washington Wizards Friday night, helping the Bobcats creep that much closer to locking up a playoff berth.
Charlotte can clinch their second playoff berth in franchise history, tomorrow night in a road tilt against the Cleveland Cavs.
