Boxscore of Charlotte Bobcats and Miami Heat – 01/03/2011

Defensive Efficiency: 106.7
Meritorious Player:
Nah.

What did you think would happen to the Bobcats, minus Gerald Wallace and down to one center, against the Heat? This is a bad offensive team facing a good-to-great defensive team without its best player and no offensive option at the 5. A certain bit of optimism may have been built around the 2-game win streak over Detroit and Cleveland – but losing to Golden State (and scoring at just 103.3 points per 100 possessions against such a poor defensive squad) had to have been a wakeup prior to this one. It was the Bobcats 13th game under the point-per-possession mark this year, and if they continue to have health issues, Charlotte could wind up the worst offense in the league.

With that said – you can still be a good team without beating great teams: Just look at Atlanta. The Hawks have just 3 wins this season against teams over .500 – The Bobcats are only 2 behind them. Just trying to be a little optimistic to close – it may be time for the Bobcats to throw in the towel and get a lot of ping pong balls.
