Bobcats squander lead, then beat Knicks in 2OT

Bobcats squander lead, then beat Knicks in 2OTCHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - Charlotte coach Larry Brown noted that at 3 hours, 1 minute, it "was about as long as a baseball game."

And the Bobcats weren't apologizing after being able to overcome blowing the equivalent of a big ninth-inning lead — even if it was hardly a World Series-caliber performance.

D.J. Augustin's two free throws with 2.5 seconds left in the second overtime snapped a tie and the Bobcats persevered after squandering an 18-point, fourth-quarter lead for a 102-100 victory over the New York Knicks on Friday night.

"We couldn't have lost this one," said guard Raymond Felton, who fought through cramps to finish with 22 points, eight rebounds and nine assists. "That would've hurt. But we got it done."

The ugly way they did it was perhaps fitting in a matchup of teams coming off losses by a combined 55 points in their openers. The Knicks missed 20 of their first 25 shots, then the Bobcats overcame a 5 1/2-minute scoring drought bridging regulation and the first overtime.
