The Bobcats vs. the Magic 4/22/10
I appreciate Ziggy getting a game summary posted for the second game since it was my assignment and I apologize to all for being late posting. I really wanted to digest what I saw and it “taste” more bitter today than last night. The Bobcats proved they could play wretched basketball in the very first game of the season against the Boston Celtics. Teams have “misfires” during the season but come play-off time you expect every team to put their collect “best foot forward”. I hope last night was not the ‘Cats “best”. The first half of last nights game was easily one of the worst comedy routines of a group of guys impersonating basketball players I’ve ever watched. I’m not sure how the Bobcats expect to come close to winning when they turn the ball over so often to the second-best Eastern Conference team. The defense has played the Magic tough in both games but the offense, especially tonight, is in dire need of a heart transplant.
There is just not much of a positive spin I can put on this game so I’ll mention a couple of things. Stephen Jackson scored 27 points and Gerald Wallace chipped in with 15 points for the ‘Cats. Nazr Mohammed had 10 points off the bench in sixteen minutes. That was the offense for Charlotte. The one glaring negative was the turn overs. Jackson led the team with 7 and Boris Diaw had 5. Jackson, with his scoring, compensates somewhat but Diaw has pulled his “disappearing” act and has had no positive impact in the first two games against the Magic. All the Bobcats players, bot just Wallace and Jackson, have to bring their “A” games if the “Cats intend to make a series out of this fiasco.
The Bobcats are in the play-offs.
A national TV audience had the opportunity to watch this game.
Next play-off game for the Bobcats: Saturday 4/24/10 2:00pm vs. the Orlando Magic
