Week in review
This week, the Bobcats.... DIDN'T HAVE A LOSING RECORD!
The Bobcats went 2-2, starting off the week with two home wins over Washington and Toronto, but then lost a 92-91 "thriller" to the tanking Pistons before getting a bomb dropped on them by the Heat in Miami.
The Bobcats probably should have been 3-1 this week. I mean, they actually lost a game they were favorites to win (against the Pistons).
Count da WIN STREAKZZZZ! Charlotte went on their first multi-game win streak since November, beating the Washington Wizards 119-114 and then the Toronto Raptors 107-101. In those games, guard Gerald Henderson averaged 24 points in 42 minutes.
Both of the Bobcats' losses this week were bad in their own ways, but the loss against the Heat was the worst. Although the Heat were on a 25-game win streak, they're still in the same league as Charlotte. The Bobcats lost by 32 points and the Heat had four players scoring in double digits (one of them being Norris Cole, with 15). The game was close in the first quarter, but then the Heat decided they wanted to start playing basketball.
Gerald Henderson averaged 20.3 points per game this week on 48.3% shooting. He was also the key two the Bobcats two wins, as I said before (see: averaged 24 points in wins).
Jeff Taylor has had a horrid week, averaging 4.3 points per game on 23.8% shooting (14.3% from beyond the arc) while racking up 2.3 fouls in only 20 minutes played per game.
Wednesday: vs Orlando, 7 p.m.
Friday: at New York, 7:30 p.m.
Saturday: at Philadelphia, 8 p.m.
The game against Orlando this week should be close, as the Bobcats are 2-1 against them thus far. The New York game should be bloody. The Knicks have been very disappointing recently, but they're still the Knicks and the game's at Madison Square Garden. Saturday's game against Philadelphia at Wells Fargo could go surprisingly well, due to the Sixers recent struggles and hit to team morale now that they know Bynum won't be on the court this season.
