Cleveland, OH - The Charlotte Bobcats are going to the playoffs for only the second time in team history.  That's thanks in part to a 96-94 win, in overtime, against the Cleveland Cavaliers.

Al Jefferson had 24 points and 15 rebounds, to lead the way for the Bobcats. Gerald Henderson hit the lead-taking bucket in overtime, and added 15 points.

Kemba Walker buried a three-pointer late in the 4th quarter, to give Charlotte an 82-80 lead. But Kyrie Irving -- who scored 44 points for the Cavs -- hit a jumper to tie the game and force overtime.

A night after his first career triple-double, Walker scored 20 points, had 7 assists, and 4 rebounds.

Charlotte is now a game behind the Washington Wizards in the Eastern Conference standings, after the Wizards lost to the Chicago Bulls on Saturday night.
