CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- Eric Gordon had 24 points and seven assists, helping the New Orleans Hornets overcome a 21-point first-half deficit and extend the Charlotte Bobcats' losing streak to 18 games with a 98-95 victory Saturday night. 

The Bobcats are one game away from a winless December. They haven't won since Nov. 24. 

Gordon, who hadn't played since April 22 following arthroscopic right knee surgery, was 5 of 13 from the field and 12 of 14 from the free throw line in 24 minutes. 

Ryan Anderson had 19 points and made a pair of 3-pointers in the final period as the Hornets won for the second time in three games. 

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist had 22 points and nine rebounds and Gerald Henderson added 19 points for the Bobcats.
