CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) – Primoz Brezec scored 18 points, including the basket that forced overtime, and Alan Anderson hit a free throw with 59 seconds left in the extra period to give the Charlotte Bobcats a 92-91 win over the Indiana Pacers on Saturday night.

The Pacers, who still clinched a playoff berth when Philadelphia lost to Orlando, had two chances to win the game.

After Anderson’s free throw snapped a 91-all tie, Jermaine O’Neal missed a jumper left of the lane with 5 seconds left. Stephen Jackson got the rebound and kicked it back outside to Anthony Johnson, who missed a 3-pointer at the buzzer.

Raymond Felton added 16 points and 13 assists as the Bobcats won their second straight game.

O’Neal had 30 points and eight rebounds, while Peja Stojakovic and Jackson each had 18 points for the Pacers, who lost their ninth straight road game.

Charlotte, which blew a 14-point second-quarter lead before falling behind by eight in the third quarter, rallied to tie it on Brezec’s offensive rebound and layup with 8.8 seconds left in regulation.

Jackson missed a fadeaway 15-footer at the buzzer, sending the game to overtime.

Charlotte, playing without leading scorer Gerald Wallace (bruised ribs) and point guard Brevin Knight (strained groin), still managed to split the season series with the Pacers. Indiana played without guard Jamaal Tinsley (strained right Achilles’).

Matt Carroll made a 3-pointer and two long jumpers in a 7-0 run to put the Bobcats ahead 78-77 with 4:10 left. Indiana fought back to take an 84-82 lead on Johnson’s free throw with 17 seconds left.

Felton then drove hard to the basket, but missed a contested shot in the lane. The rebound bounced around before landing in Brezec’s hands underneath the basket for the tying layup.

Down by 12 at halftime, the Pacers were inspired to start the second half, outscoring Charlotte 22-6 in the first 6 minutes of the third quarter. The Pacers, who held Charlotte to 3-of-16 shooting in the period, led 65-59 heading to the fourth.

Brezec’s baseline jumper and dunk were part of a 14-2 run to put Charlotte ahead 47-33 with 30 seconds left in the first half. The Bobcats, who held the Pacers to 14 second-quarter points, led 47-35 at halftime.

Notes: The Bobcats improved to 4-4 in overtime, while the Pacers dropped to 0-2. … Pacers forward Jeff Foster (strained back) did not make the trip, but coach Rick Carlisle said he could play on Monday. “If he’s making some significant strides we have a flight set up for him to meet us in Toronto,” Carlisle said. … Bobcats coach Bernie Bickerstaff said Wallace and Knight might sit out the final two games of the season. “They are who they are at this point. They have nothing to prove,” he said.
