Charlotte, NC (Sports Network) - A streak had to end.

And for the Charlotte Bobcats, their pursuit toward an NBA record for ineptitude at home came to a halt.

Gerald Henderson's go-ahead 3-pointer with 4.6 seconds left lifted the Bobcats to a 102-101 triumph over the Minnesota Timberwolves, ending Charlotte's 16- game home losing streak.

The Bobcats were three more consecutive home losses from setting an NBA record set by the Dallas Mavericks during the 1993-94 season.

Kemba Walker tallied 25 points, eight assists and eight rebounds, while Henderson added 15 points for Charlotte, which registered its first victory at Time Warner Cable Arena since Nov. 21.

J.J. Barea's jumper at the buzzer was blocked by Walker.

Luke Ridnour had 22 points to lead the Timberwolves, who have dropped nine of 10 overall and seven straight on the road.
