Tuesday night’s loss was ugly to watch if you’re a Bobcats fan. In an 82 game season, all teams have a couple of nights where the effort just isn’t there. This game was puzzling though, the lack of effort came directly on the heels of a 4 game winning streak where the Bobcats had played their best ball of the season and seemed to be on the cusp of “figuring it out”.
Via the Charlotte Observer, there were two quotes that jumped out at me:
Brown called a timeout less than two minutes into this game because he was so dissatisfied with his players’ body language. He saw fear, he saw confusion and he saw selfishness.
This is troubling, if we’re are curling up into the fetal position because the other team has Celtics across their jerseys, then we are much farther away from competing than we thought.
“Layup after layup after layup,” said Bobcats forward Gerald Wallace. “We don’t want to be a dirty team, but we’ve got to start taking some hard fouls.”
Agreed and cosigned 10,000 percent. Sometimes you just need to knock somebody on their ass… It makes the world a better place.
Let’s hope that this was just a one game setback.
