Raptors Fall to the Bobcats in Charlotte

DeMar Derozan sinks 25 points but it wasn't enough to hold back Bobcats.

Al Jefferson had 22 points and 19 rebounds Monday, and the Bobcats held on to win 100-95 and beat the Toronto Raptors for the seventh straight time in Charlotte.

Jefferson became the first Bobcats player to have a double-double in the first quarter with 10 points and 10 rebounds, sending Charlotte to a 26-11 lead. The Bobcats stretched the lead to 30 in the third quarter but needed to withstand a furious rally by the Raptors.

With point guard Kemba Walker out with a sprained ankle, Ramon Sessions and Jannero Pargo combined for 40 points on 10 of 17 shooting. Sessions had 23 points and was 10 of 11 from the foul line, including two free throws with 1.6 seconds left.

DeMar Derozan had 25 points and Kyle Lowry had 21 for the Atlantic Division-leading Raptors, who fell back to .500 on the season after their fourth straight road loss.<
