  The only one who could play any defense on Shannon Brown on Wednesday night was Charlotte Observer beat reporter Rick Bonnell.  Bonnell limited the Suns’ Brown to just 4 3-pointers in his write-up of the Bobcats’ loss to Phoenix.  The only problem is that in reality, Brown actually scored six 3-pointers, all of them [...]

Shannon Brown nails six three-pointers in 4th

Shannon Brown’s name doesn’t ring bells like it did when he was running next to Kobe Bryant, back when his breakaway dunks made him something of a national sensation, at least until he left his faction sorely disappointed with an uninspired performance in the 2010 Slam Dunk Contest.  His recognition has never really recovered from the letdown, but that isn’t to say Shannon...

Brown's 3-pointers lift Suns over Bobcats

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- Shannon Brown hit six 3-pointers in the fourth quarter and finished with 24 points to lead the Phoenix Suns over the Charlotte Bobcats 117-110 on Wednesday night. Brown, who played briefly with the Bobcats before being traded to the Los Angeles Lakers along with Adam Morrison, helped break open an 87-all game early in the fourth quarter when he suddenly got...

Fantasy Basketball: Byron Mullens Is Great As Long As You Don’t Have To Look At Him

Welcome back, fantasy basketball owners. It’s been too long and I couldn’t be happier that the NBA is back. The gift and curse of fantasy basketball is that not nearly as many people play it as baseball and football. This is great for my twitter timeline since I don’t have to scroll through thousands of waiver wire articles and people incessantly tweeting about their line up...

Bobcats beat Mavs for first time in team history

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- The Charlotte Bobcats had never beaten the Dallas Mavericks in their nine-year history before Saturday night. But thanks to Kemba Walker, Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, Ramon Sessions and a defense that rose to the occasion several times, the losing streak is over. Walker scored 26 points, Kidd-Gilchrist had 25 points and 12 rebounds, and Sessions made two big plays...

(AP) -- Rookie Michael Kidd-Gilchrist had a career-high 25 points and 12 rebounds to help the Charlotte Bobcats snap a 16-game losing streak against the Dallas Mavericks with a 101-97 overtime win on Saturday night.

Brown burns old team as Suns beat Bobcats 117-110

CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- The Charlotte Bobcats gave up on guard Shannon Brown when they traded him in 2009, and Wednesday night they paid dearly for it. Brown exploded for six 3-pointers in the fourth quarter, including two that served as daggers in the final 3:09, as the Phoenix Suns squandered a 15-point second-half lead but regrouped down the stretch to beat the Bobcats 117-110. ...

Suns rally from 26 down to beat Cavaliers

PHOENIX (AP) -- Shannon Brown scored 12 of his 22 points in the fourth quarter and helped key a late 14-4 run as the Phoenix Suns rallied from a 26-point deficit to beat the Cleveland Cavaliers 107-105 Friday night. P.J. Tucker hit a 20-foot jumper from the left corner to give the Suns a 103-102 lead with 1:32 to go. After the teams traded misses, Marcin Gortat blocked Daniel Gibson...

Charlotte Bobcats vs. New Orleans Hornets Game Preview and Pick

The new team Charlotte team, our beloved Bobcats, take on the old Charlotte team, the New Orleans Hornets on Friday night. After seeing the Bobcats get a narrow win, get blown out, and put up a ton of points in an exciting loss (those exist?), there is hope for a win against a young Hornets [...]

Bobcats end losing streak to Mavs

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist is learning his way around the NBA, and the rookie took another big step forward on Saturday night. Kidd-Gilchrist had a career-high 25 points and 12 rebounds to help the Charlotte Bobcats end a 16-game losing streak against the Dallas Mavericks with a 101-97 overtime victory. The former Kentucky star and No. 2 overall draft pick was 8 of 12 from the field...

Cavaliers (2-3) at Suns (2-3) - Game 6

OPENING TIP In Phoenix, everything has changed. Well, not the terrain. Its still always hot there, and they still grow cactuses. As for the basketball team, man, what a fresh start. The Suns now play an everyday style, methodically working the ball for the best open shot. They defend and scrap and possess very little pizzazz. Not that the Steve Nash teams were a bunch of running...

Suns offense discovers life on Planet Brown

PHOENIX If a recent trend survives, the Phoenix Suns' seasonal battle chant may require a palette revision. While not advocating the complete dismissal of the "All For Orange" marketing pitch, we do feel a need to mix in an "All For Brown" now and then. The Brown currently inspiring this potential amendment is Suns guard Shannon, who for the second game...

Mavericks-Bobcats Preview

If there's a sure thing in the NBA, it's that the Dallas Mavericks will beat the Charlotte Bobcats. The visiting Mavericks can improve to 17-0 against the Bobcats on Saturday night in a matchup of teams coming off road defeats one night earlier. Dallas (4-2) remains the only team that Charlotte (1-3) has never beaten. The Mavericks routed the Bobcats 126-99 exactly one...

Suns 107, Cavaliers 105

PHOENIX – Shannon Brown continues to bring the fourth quarter magic. And the records keep tumbling for the Phoenix Suns. Two nights after setting a Suns record with six 3-pointers in a win at Charlotte, Brown had 12 of his 22 points in the fourth quarter as Phoenix fashioned a miracle comeback from a 26-point deficit -- the biggest in franchise history at home -- to stun the...

Cavs at Suns: Sifting through an epic collapse

The score was 42-16, early second quarter. At that moment, I very well may have been the cockiest Cavaliers fan on the planet. Anderson Varejao was going to the All-Star game, I tweeted. Cleveland was obviously far superior to all things Phoenix, Arizona. The only thing the Suns had going for themselves was how they scripted that reversible logo at half-court. I was looking around...
