Bobcats (9-17) host the Warriors (7-19) tonight at the cable box. After getting Gerald Wallace back last ngiht and his boost of 22 points , Charlotte has put together back-to-back wins for the 2nd time this year. Golden State has fallen from grace and their huge 8th over a 1 seed in the playoffs 2 years ago. It all possibly started with the trade of Jason Richardson to Charlotte for the rights to Brandan Wright on draft night prior to the 07-08 season. Well Jason Richardson has since turned into Boris Diaw. Currently, Diaw (as a Bobcat) is leading the team in scoring with 18.3/per in his 4 games. 7 game losing streak followed by back to back wins over Chicago(currently 8th in the east) and a big blowout last night in Memphis (who cares, they're Memphis).
Golden State coach-waiting-to-be-fired Don Nelson has decided he doesn't know what he's doing on the defensive side of the ball and has named his assistant coaches Keith Smart and Sidney Moncrief "defensive coordinators." True enough Golden State allows the most points by opponents, 112 per game. I started that sentance not knowing the actual number, that's huge. The Bobcats are the league's worst offensive team at 90.8 ppg. I'm interested to see what happens tonight in the arena.
