In the fourth quarter the Bobcats cut what had been a 17-point lead to 114-108 on a Gerald Wallace dunk with just more than two minutes remaining. But all the Bobcats could convert the rest of the game was a free throw as the Wizards won comfortably.

Rookie Adam Morrison led the Bobcats (4-12) with 23 points. Knight added 22 points and a team-high nine assists.
