Both teams played last night – only one team is in the playoff race. The Bobcats need to play like it tonight, because this is the kind of game they need to win, but it feels like they miss out on (no stats to back it up, just thinking back to some of the late season losses last year). Philadelphia does a decent job of forcing turnovers and holding on to the ball themselves – the types of things that are kryptonite to the Cats. If Charlotte gets sloppy with the ball, the 76ers have the athletes to make them pay, with Andre Iguodala, Thaddeus Young, Jrue Holiday, and Lou Williams. Just like yesterday, this is not a must-win for the Bobcats – but they are all good to wins.
