Bobcats rout Suns 125-99 behind Wallace, Jackson

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - Stephen Jackson scored 29 points to surpass 10,000 career points, Gerald Wallace added 29 points and 13 rebounds, and the Charlotte Bobcats continued 1 of their best stretches in franchise history with a 125-99 rout of the Phoenix Suns on Saturday night.

Winning their fourth straight game and extending their team record to seven consecutive home wins, the Bobcats (19-19) were never threatened in a record-setting night that saw them reach .500 at the latest point in team history.

They toyed with the Suns, who trailed by as many as 39 points a night after losing on a buzzer-beater at Atlanta.

Amare Stoudemire also reached 10,000 points, finishing with 19 for Phoenix, which has dropped 10 of its past 11 road games.
