Kemba Walker scored a career-high 30 points in Mike Dunlap's coaching debut and the Charlotte Bobcats snapped a 23-game losing streak with a 90-89 victory over the Indiana Pacers.

The Bobcats lost their final 23 games last season to finish 7-59, the worst winning percentage (.106) in NBA history.

They started this season strong against a Pacers team that won 19 of 33 road games last season.

Walker was the catalyst all game, hitting 9 of his first 13 shots - most of those coming on drives to the lane where the 6-foot-1 point guard somehow managed to get his shots above much taller defenders.

Gerald Henderson added 18 points for the Bobcats.

The Pacers had numerous chances to win the game, including D.J. Augustin's jumper at the buzzer that fell just short. Tyler Hansbrough and Lance Stephenson led the Pacers with 15 points each.
