Gilbert Arenas scored 18 points and Antawn Jamison added 17 for the Wizards, who held the Bobcats to 14 points in the final period and beat them for the second time in as many nights.

A second-year guard, Taylor scored 12 points in Monday's win and was at it again Tuesday. He made 4-of-10 shots and added four assists while sparking the late surge.
