NBA: Bobcats Beat Wizards, Arenas Injures Knee

The Charlotte Bobcats beat the Washington Wizards 108-100 Wednesday in National Basketball Association action.

Charlotte's Gerald Wallace scored 27 points, grabbed 12 rebounds and dished out eight assists to lead the Bobcats to its second straight win over the Wizards. The game literally added injury to insult for Washington, as All-Star guard Gilbert Arenas suffered a knee sprain in a collision with Wallace.
