Happy MLK Day everyone!
Are we going to be able to take our (4-13) road record into Philly where they are (11-7) at home and somehow be able to break our 2 game road skid? :g:
Can we do it?

Hopefully! Directv has a free preview of NBA League pass so I'll be able to watch the game on TV without having to go through some random website. I worry about Holiday posting up on Augustin all night and shooting over him all night.
I think where we'll be able to beat them is with Jax and Crash. Just need Jax to eliminate his turnovers and not shoot 3 for 31. Let's make it happen Jordancats!

Tyrus Thomas Suspended One Game (http://basketball.realgm.com/src_wiretap_archives/71194/20110117/tyrus_thomas_suspended_one_game/)

Without Tyrus....UPS might have to be activated today, Najera will get off the bench and Random Mcquire will also get more minutes.
But Philly sucks so...easy win....right?

Thanks for the loss Jackson. I hope we trade him, I don't even care what we get in return. :banghead:

Congrats to Boris for the Triple Double!
Crash, why the hell are you shooting only 7 times for an entire game and OT? And Jax, why do you kep chucking 3's when you are 1/11 and not shooting worth a crap?

Someone who was watching please tell me what happened with the play calling in OT at the 37 second mark. We were down 2 and coming out of a timeout with 37 seconds left. The next play-by-play said "Kwame Brown bad pass.". On my team we would have run a 2-for-1 in that situation. The ball would not have touched Kwame's hands and we would have gotten a shot with about 30 seconds left. Under no circumstances does Kwame have the ball in his hands looking to make a pass with 20 seconds left (props to Kwame on very nice stats overall though).
Is my thinking too advanced for our coaching staff? Or did something else happen that I couldn't see on the play-by-play to make us hold the ball for 17 seconds in that situation?

Very tough loss... I remember late in the fourth, I thought it was lost, Philly led by 10. But great effort to come back and take the lead...
It's great that Boris have a triple double, but I'm too disappointed now to be happy about that.. come on Boris, I hope you'll be more regular, you can do great every games..
Great game by Kwame, but the TO in the OT is tough..

Thanks for the loss Jackson. I hope we trade him, I don't even care what we get in return. :banghead:Jackson is going to have his stinkers but I think it is a bit extreme to have this get rid of him attitude when more times than not he is a key contributor to our team. That does not mean I think he is untouchable but I would for sure expect a fair trade that got us some value for him. He for the most part has not been a problem in Charlotte. He does occasionally get mouthy with the refs or does not run back on defense but he is far from the poster child for such. Lately Stephen Jackson has been playing quite well and I will take the occasional stinker for the more often good to great nights.
Inexcusable loss. Playoff teams don't lose those games.
Crash's FT shooting was terrible, Jack and DJ were terrible, and when Boris' and Kwame's best games as Bobcats come in a loss to a poor team, you know you suck.
