Most of those came on drives by Kidd-Gilchrist and Sessions.
Kidd-Gilchrist picked up where he left off Saturday night, driving aggressively to the hole. The No. 2 pick in the draft had 12 points at halftime on 5-of-8 shooting to go with five rebounds. Sessions had 11 points at the break.
It helped that the Wizards struggled from the field, shooting just 34 percent in the first half.
Charlotte's aggressive defense gave the Wizards fits. Washington turned the ball over 17 times, leading to 19 Bobcats points.
Charlotte also dominated inside as Brendan Haywood had a solid eight points and 11 rebounds, while reserve Tyrus Thomas chipped in with 10 points and six rebounds.
The Bobcats won just seven games all of last season. It took them 13 games to win three games last season but they went on to lose 16 straight after that as the season turned sour in a hurry.
This year's Bobcats are playing with hustle and appeared more confident after beating Dallas on Saturday night, snapping a 16-game losing streak against the Mavericks.
