YAY WE ARE A BASKETBALL TEAM - Mark J. Rebilas-US PRESSWIRE
Gametime: 7:00 p.m. EST
Beach House - "On the Sea" (via sambx88)
The Suns are ... I don't even know. They're not good, I know that. They have one of the worst groups of wing players that's led by Michael Beasley. But their frontcourt is strong with Marcin Gortat and Luis Scola, which has in turn placed them favorably as an offensive rebounding team. That doesn't particularly bode well for the Bobcats, a poor rebounding team in general. However, the Bobcats have done very well so far taking care of the ball and forcing turnovers, though without Gerald Henderson, Charlotte loses their top player in steals.
Both teams rank highly in pace, so at the least this game should get pretty fast, even if both teams have rather bad effective field goal percentages. The Suns are last in three point percentage and last in three point percentage given up. The Bobcats on the other hand are in the bottom five of three point percentage and next-to-last in three point percentage given up. Small sample size is assuredly an argument, but where there is smoke, there is fire. I'm definitely looking forward to sequences that combine the fast pace and bad shooting: Whee! /clank Whee! /boink etc etc.
