CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Al Jefferson scored 34 points in Charlotte's 109-87 victory over the Indiana Pacers on Wednesday night that gave the Bobcats their fifth straight home win.

Jefferson was 16-of-25 from the field and had eight rebounds for the Bobcats (28-33), who equaled their combined win total from the previous two seasons.

Jefferson, whose 38-point, 19-rebound effort Monday night was overshadowed by LeBron James' career-high 61-point outing, has scored at least 20 points in 21 of his last 24 games.

Charlotte became the first team since the 2009-10 Knicks to play the NBA's top four teams in consecutive games. They previously lost to San Antonio, Oklahoma City and Miami on the road.

Evan Turner had 22 points for the Pacers (46-15), who lost back-to-back games for only the second time this season.

WINSTON-SALEM, N.C. — Tyler Cavanaugh scored a career-high 20 points and Wake Forest pulled away to upset No. 4 Duke 82-72 on Wednesday night.

Travis McKie added 19 points in his final scheduled home game for the Demon Deacons (16-14, 6-11 Atlantic Coast Conference).

Coming off a home loss to sub-.500 Boston College, they shot 46 percent from the field and overcame their largest deficit of the game by scoring 17 straight points and holding Duke without a field goal for 5 critical minutes down the stretch.

Codi Miller-McIntyre had 13 points to help Wake Forest claim its first win over Duke since 2009 and its biggest win since an upset of No. 2 Miami last February.

Jabari Parker scored 19 points and Rodney Hood added 16 for the Blue Devils (23-7, 12-5).

Playing their first game in over a week, they missed six straight shots down the stretch and were just 6-of-27 from 3-point range while falling to 4-5 in ACC road games.
