The good news for the Charlotte Bobcats is that second-year point guard Kemba Walker continues growing by leaps and bounds and had a career-high 32 points on Saturday night.

The bad news?

Even that wasn't enough for the Bobcats to end their losing streak as the Orlando Magic made a late burst for a 107-98 victory that extended Charlotte's misery to 11 games.

It's the fourth-longest losing streak in the nine-year-old franchise's history; Only the 23-game losing streak that ended last season, the 16-game losing streak earlier last season and a 13-game losing streak in the middle of the 2005-06 season are longer.

And the schedule certainly doesn't get easier for the Bobcats.

In fact, after starting this week's four-game, five-day road trip with games at the Los Angeles Lakers (10-14) and Phoenix (9-15), the Bobcats don't face a team that entered Saturday with a losing record again until Dec. 29 at home against New Orleans (5-17).

"It's tough," said Walker, who converted 11 of 20 shots and eight of nine free throws to go with seven assists. "Nobody likes losing and it's all on us. I think we've had too many slow starts and we have to pick it up from the tipoff."
