EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) - Jarvis Hayes hit two late 3-pointers in a 37-second span and the New Jersey Nets rallied from a 12-point, fourth-quarter deficit to beat the Charlotte Bobcats 91-87 on Monday night.

Rookie Brook Lopez added 18 points and a career-best 20 rebounds, and Vince Carter had five of his 19 points in the final 4:47 as New Jersey won its second straight but only its fourth in 12 games. Hayes finished with 15 on 6-of-9 shooting.

Raymond Felton had 19 points for Charlotte in a game in which coach Larry Brown decided to experiment with nothing on the line. He played four reserves with only one starter in both the second and fourth quarters, and it ended up costing the Bobcats in their third straight loss and sixth in seven games.
