A series has not started until a home team loses a game – so head out to Time Warner Cable Arena and cheer the Bobcats to victory. Wear white – the Bobcats want to make this game a white-out. Also, take a picture from your seat at tip-off and send it to David over at RufusOnFire – Photo Project for Game 3. It is a cool way to commemorate the first home playoff game of the Bobcats franchise and I plan to participate. Expect to see the Bobcats come out aggressively and attack the basket/Dwight Howard. If they can limit their turnovers, Charlotte has a good chance of taking this one. The half-court defense and their rebounding has been good enough so far – but the Bobcats have shot themselves in the foot (feet?) with their proclivity to hand over the basketball. 15 turnovers or fewer and I think they take this one. We shall see – Go Bobcats.
