WASHINGTON — Byron Mullens scored 27 points, Ramon Sessions had 20 and Ben Gordon added 19 as the Charlotte Bobcats earned their seventh win of the season and kept the Washington Wizards winless with a 108-106 double-overtime victory on Saturday night.
Last season, the Bobcats went 7-59 in the lockout-shortened season, the lowest winning percentage in NBA history, but have already equaled that victory total in their 12th game.
Washington fell to 0-11 despite the spark supplied by Nene, who energized the Wizards during most of his 29 minutes, but in the end, the Bobcats pulled out the win.
Lakers 115, Mavericks 89
At Dallas, Metta World Peace hit three early 3-pointers to spark a Los Angeles barrage from long range, and the Lakers scored 36 points before Kobe Bryant took his first shot.
Heat 110, Cavaliers 108
At Miami, Ray Allen took a pass from LeBron James and made a 3-pointer with 18.2 seconds left, and Miami rallied from a seven-point deficit in the final 1:52 to beat Cleveland.
James finished with 30 points for the Heat, who remained perfect at home despite leading for only 2 minutes, 29 seconds.
Thunder 116, 76ers 109, OT
At Philadelphia, Kevin Durant scored 37 points, Russell Westbrook had 30 and Oklahoma City beat Philadelphia.

At Atlanta, Jeff Teague had 19 points and 11 assists, Zaza Pachulia added 19 points and 12 rebounds, and Atlanta won its fifth straight by beating Los Angeles.
Bulls 93, Bucks 86
At Milwaukee, Carlos Boozer and Richard Hamilton scored 22 points apiece to lead Chicago over Milwaukee, breaking a four-game losing streak.
The win by the Bulls was the ninth straight over the Bucks and the fifth straight at the Bradley Center. The last time Milwaukee beat Chicago was on April 10, 2010, in Chicago.
Kings 108, Jazz 97
At Sacramento, Calif., Tyreke Evans scored 21 of his 27 points in the second half and slumping Sacramento beat Utah.

Warriors 96, Timberwolves 85
At Oakland, Calif., Klay Thompson scored a season-high 24 points, Stephen Curry added 20 points and six assists, and Golden State beat Minnesota.
The Warriors trailed most of the game but went on a 19-2 run, with reserves Carl Landry, Draymond Green and rookie Harrison Barnes providing the bulk of the scoring. Landry had five points, Green had four and Barnes — who had a thunderous one-handed dunk over Minnesota's 6-foot-11 center Nikola Pekovic in the second quarter — added three to help Golden State go ahead for good.
