(NBA) Charlotte come back to beat Atlanta
(04-15 11:55)

Chris Douglas-Roberts dribbled into the lane and sank a short jumper as time expired as the Charlotte Bobcats overcame a 15-point deficit in the final period to beat the Atlanta Hawks 95-93.
Al Jefferson had 27 points and 15 rebounds for Charlotte, which remained one game behind Washington in the race for the sixth spot in the Eastern Conference playoffs. Gary Neal had 17. Jefferson's turnaround jumper gave the Bobcats a 93-91 lead before Lou Williams answered with a tying jumper for Atlanta with 2.6 seconds remaining.
Following a timeout, Douglas-Roberts penetrated and lobbed the soft jumper as the buzzer sounded.
The Hawks rested starters Kyle Korver, Paul Millsap and DeMarre Carroll. Mike Scott led Atlanta with 20 points. --AP
