Found January 28, 2013 on Crossover Chronicles:
After last season, you would say the Charlotte Bobcats could not get any worse. The team posted a 7-59 record and set a new NBA low for winning percentage (.106). This year, Charlotte is still the worst team in the league, but they are improving… sort of. Instead of setting new NBA records for futility, the Bobcats are just getting close. The 1993-94 Dallas Mavericks hold the league record for consecutive home losses at 19, but Charlotte looked like they were ready to break it, losing 16 in a row before finally pulling out a 102-101 victory over the struggling Minnesota Timberwolves on Saturday. The Bobcats had to come from 18 points down and needed a game winning three-pointer from Gerald Henderson with 4.6 seconds left, but they got it done. The fans at Time Warner Cable Arena, who had not seen their team win since November 21, finally had something to celebrate. Yippee! The Bobcats avoided inking their name into the undesirable section of the NBA record books again, but...

Gerald Henderson Steals A Game From The Wolves

I am not a coach but I am pretty positive that this was not the play that Mike Dunlap drew up.  The play that was suppose to be run went horrible wrong and turned one of the sloppiest plays to end a game into a game winning shot by Gerald Henderson.  The Bobcats fans lost their minds and the Timberwolves looked so confused.

Can Tyrus Thomas Dunk?

Remember when Tyrus Thomas jumped over former Bulls and current Bobcats teammate Ben Gordon in the Slam Dunk Contest?  That was in 2007, almost six years ago to the day.  Tyrus was a 20-year-old rookie then, a slam-dunking pogo stick of a power forward who seemed to enjoy attempting to tear the rim down every time he got the chance. A lot can change in six years, especially in...

Charlotte Bobcats vs. Chicago Bulls Pick and Preview

The Charlotte Bobcats have a chance at doing something we haven’t seen them do much in this 2012-13 NBA season: win consecutive games. It comes on the road against the Chicago Bulls, but a chance is still a chance, right? Charlotte is an abysmal 5-14 on the road this year, so it won’t be easy. [...]

Irving and Henderson hit game winners

Gerald Henderson Nails Game-Winning Three Pointer to Halt Bobcats’ 16-Game Home Losing Streak (Video)

Gerald Henderson picked the wrong night for some late-game heroics. Less than an hour after second-year star Kyrie Irving hit a game-winning three pointer to clinch a victory for the Cavaliers, Henderson did the same, though the Bobcats didn’t make it look quite as easy. It took nearly the entire 24-second shot clock for Charlotte to get the ball off, and the Bobcats (or Cats,...
