Auburn Hills, MI (Sports Network) - Kemba Walker made big plays late in a 20- point scoring effort and the Charlotte Bobcats avoided another losing streak by beating the Pistons, 108-101, in overtime at the Palace of Auburn Hills.

Walker scored on a floater in the final seconds of regulation to force overtime and gave Charlotte a six-point cushion in the extra session with a reverse layup to seal the victory and deny the Pistons of their first five- game winning streak since 2009.

Bismack Biyombo totaled 10 points and 17 rebounds, while Ben Gordon and Ramon Sessions put forth strong efforts off the bench with 18 and 15 points, respectively, in the Bobcats' second win in three games.

Tayshaun Prince scored a game-high 21 points to go along with seven boards for the Pistons, who received 18 points apiece from Greg Monroe and Rodney Stuckey. Monroe also finished with 14 rebounds and six assists in the defeat.
