Hornets come back to win again

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - Kemba Walker scored 21 points, and the streaking Charlotte Hornets defeated the Utah Jazz 104-98 on Wednesday night for their fourth straight win.

Walker, the third-leading scorer in the Eastern Conference at more than 24 points per game, struggled with his shot early and finished just 7 of 20 from the field, but made several key baskets down the stretch where he had nine points.

Marvin Williams had 19 points, including a big 3-pointer in the fourth quarter to help stretch the Charlotte lead to four. Marco Belinelli and Frank Kaminsky each had 13 points as Charlotte's bench outscored Utah's 41-20.

The Hornets came into the game with the second-best record in the East behind only the NBA champion Cleveland Cavaliers and had to play from behind most of the night.
