Not much to say on this. Friday – Yao hits a big 3 late to help preserve a win. The very next night, over half the country away, the Bobcats fall behind early, rally to 4, and lose as Rodney Carney puts up 21 – his second highest total this season (22) and only his 3 double-digit scoring effort in February and March. Not quite how the Bobcats needed to start this stretch of winnable games. No offense against the Rockets (not terribly surprising against one of the best defensive teams in the league)…but then no defense against the Wolves – the 21st “best” offense in the NBA. Sometimes being a Bobcats fan leaves me feeling like Charlie Brown, staring at the sky, as the ball has been pulled away again. Good grief.
