CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- It would have been totally understandable had the Portland Trail Blazers folded down the stretch Monday night. Instead, the Blazers turned the sixth game on a grueling seven-game Eastern road trip into a night to remember. Portland rallied from an 18-point deficit in the final five-plus minutes of regulation, then pulled away for a 118-112 overtime victory over the Charlotte Bobcats. The stunning comeback occurred after the Blazers trailed 92-74, but it was not out of character for the team, according to coach Terry Stotts. "It was an exciting game, and it was a fun way to win it," Stotts said. "Obviously, being down 15 or 17 with five and a half to go was not where you wanted to be, but we had guys make big plays on both ends of the floor. "We were resilient tonight.

Predicting How the Charlotte Bobcats Will Do in December

I was on the optimistic side before the season began when analyzing the prospects of the Charlotte Bobcats for the first month of the season. I was criticized a bit for predicting a 6-9 November start, and while I freely admit it was a bit of a reach at the time, it turns out my [...]

Byron Mullens Dunks All Over LaMarcus Aldridge, But Bobcats Still Lose (Video)

The Charlotte Bobcats have not had much to celebrate in their nine-year existence. They have posted only one winning season and gave their fans (what few of them there are) reason to get excited earlier this season when the ‘Cats won six of eight. Since then, somebody must have reminded them that they are the Bobcats, because they have lost four straight. With that in mind, we...

Hickson benched, LaMarcus embarrassed, Mullens a hero!

Let’s lead today with J.J. Hickson, the man who played just 12 minutes last night because his defense was, shall we say, lacking. Son, you don’t let Byron Mullens dunk on LeMarcus Aldridge’s head like that! Now go sit on the end of the bench. Don’t even bother getting on the stationary bike, you’re not going back in! boo hoo. That’s what I can imagine the coach saying...

B.J. Mullens throws it down on LaMarcus Aldridge

Along with the Charlotte Bobcats B.J. Mullens is one of the biggest surprises on this young NBA season. Last night in a game against Portland Mullens threw down a monster dunk. This is one of the best dunks in the NBA so far this season. Harrison Barnes still has the dunk of the year so far though. Mullens attempted a three pointer but he missed it and got his own rebound. He then...

Ben Gordon Reaches 10K Point Plateau in Loss to the Trailblazers

This dunk was incredible...but this picture...well...Byron, we're going to have to work on your "awesome dunk" face. Well, tonight had its fair share of ups and downs.  There were great dunks, great plays, and big leads.  There were also turnovers, missed foul shots, poor officiating, and squandered leads.  The result was the Bobcats netting their 4th straight...

Byron Mullens Flying Dunk on LaMarcus Aldridge's Face (Video)

Check out ya boy Byron Mullens of the Charlotte Bobcats flying over top of LaMarcus Aldridge and dunking all over his face last night.  This is a seven footer I might add.  Never seen anything like it.  Aldridge didn't seem like he wanted to go for a block and settled for trying to take a charge, but no go on that.  The dunk was good to go and it clearly sits at the top of...

Byron Mullens Posterizes LaMarcus Aldridge With Early Dunk Of The Year Candidate

Last night, Byron Mullens (better known as B.J. to you college basketball fans) had what might be the best dunk of the NBA season so far. I know what you’re thinking, ‘Wait, that dorky, weird looking white guy had the dunk of the year?‘ Yes and you should watch it. Now. Mullens tosses up a three from the top of the key.

Video: Bobcats' Mullens has to be invited to dunk contest

Blake Griffin, Gerald Green, DeMar DeRozan are all considered some of the best dunkers in the NBA but should Bobcats' Byron Mullens be added to the list? If his dunk on Blazers' LaMarcus Aldridge is any indication, then the answer is yes. During the Bobcats-Blazers game, Mullens went top-shelf on Aldridge and showed off not only some major hops, but will certainly have...

Byron Mullens Dunks All Over LaMarcus Aldridge

Byron Mullens tossed LaMarcus Aldridge on one of the more nasty posters we have seen this year. Wait, what? You heard that correctly.

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist skies for two-handed jam (Video)

While most remember that New Orleans Hornets forward Anthony Davis was the first pick of the 2012 NBA Draft, the second pick has been making noise with the Charlotte Bobcats.

Trail Blazers-Pacers Preview

The Portland Trail Blazers' bench has helped the team pick up its scoring - and get back into the win column - after a rough start to their longest trip of the season.
