TSP Andrew: My apologies for the latness of this recap, but a fever has had me under the weather since Wednesday. Fortunately Bruce put this recap together for me to share with you guys. Thanks Bruce!
Here we are again. It’s Wednesday and the Bobcats are in Phoenix for what feels like their umpteenth double-double of the season and we aren’t even out of December yet. Worse yet, they get one whole day off before they open up yet another double-double on the road to finish out the week. Phoenix has been struggling to stay above the .500 mark this season which means that the Bobcats should have a fighting chance if last night’s adrenaline flood in Los Angeles didn’t wash all the energy out of the team. Would they be able to put together a solid chance to steal victory number 8? Or would they find yet another way to suffer a heartbreaking loss? Well, the headline provides your answer, but if you want to know how it all went down, I’ll be waiting with the info on the next pa...

This amusing video from earlier this week shows Bobcats reporter Stephanie Ready trying to file a report about shopping on the Charlotte Bobcats website. Watch as she becomes slightly annoyed when the cameraperson is supposed to zoom in on that lovely Bobcats sweatshirt and leaves her awkwardly looking to and fro. Ready isn't just known the Charlotte Bobcats sideline reporter...
Ex-NBA player Javaris Crittenton, who is facing murder charges, is being accused of slapping the mother of his son.
The Suns on Friday recalled guard Kendall Marshall from the Bakersfield Jam of the NBA Development League.
Marshall, the team's first-round pick in June's draft at No. 13 overall, had been assigned the to their D-League on Nov. 29 after playing sparingly early in the year behind point guards Goran Dragic and Sebastian Telfair.
He appeared in nine games for the Jam and...
PHOENIX He arrives early on game nights, usually finishing a modest shooting routine before the early fans enter US Airways Center two hours before the opening tip.
This is the time reserved for main-court work by the Phoenix Suns out-of-the-rotation players, with the others chugging through several grueling drills while he waits for an opportunity to squeeze in a few jumpers....
On the verge of embarrassing the Lakers on their home court, the Bobcats came up emptier than a soda calorie on their last possession. Gerald Henderson failed to put back a partially-blocked Kemba Walker miss, Byron Mullens mistakenly thought the hoop was attached to the ceiling, and then Ben Gordon missed a pretty good 3-point [...]
Hey… remember all those rumors about Marcin Gortat in Boston?
Go ahead and give this a read and let me know if you still want the guy:
“I think I lost the hunger of the game,” Gortat said. “I wasn’t hungry enough to go and get it just like I used to do. I definitely felt that.”
The Suns concluded a five-game homestand on Wednesday with their fourth straight win — a...
With basketball a seemingly year-round obligation for Marcin Gortat, the Suns starting center naturally expects to encounter some resistance from his body. He definitely thought that would be the case this season after competing for Poland last summer in tournament play to help the country qualify for EuroBasket 2013.
But instead of struggling physically with the wear-and-tear of...
Bobcats fans, if they exist, deserve something to be happy about (other than Michael Kidd-Gilchrist). Losers of thirteen consecutive games, what started out as a promising season is quickly turning into another disaster. Here is something that will take their minds off of the putrid basketball they’re forced to watch…the Lady Cats.
More specifically we’re talking about the...
Continuing with my theme of “Hey, here’s some good news, let’s talk about this!” that started with Andre Johnson’s incredibly kind effort and continued with Chris Paul’s equally generous charitable act, sports teams in every league except the one with a commissioner who is ruining Canada’s Christmas have been pitching in to help kids in their communities. Earlier this...
Denver Nuggets big man Kosta Koufos was posterized by Charlotte Bobcats rookie Michael Kidd-Gilchrist on Saturday. Watch as Kidd-Gilchrist drives the lane and hammers down a one-handed dunk with authority at the expense of Koufos' pride.Koufos would redeem himself, however, as the Nuggets went on to roll 110-88 thanks in large part to a season-high 16 points from the 23-year old.
Warriors guard Stephen Curry had a career night against the Charlotte Bobcats on Friday night. Curry knocked down a career-high eight three-pointers scoring 27 points. Curry also broke his previous mark of seven three-pointers which he had just tied on Wednesday against the Kings. He also set a franchise record, becoming the first Warrior to make [...]
If the Oklahoma City Thunder can finally lose one, then the Charlotte Bobcats can finally win one, right? I’m for the notion. Heck, I’m starting that notion. After the Bobcats blew a huge lead against a Lakers team with no identity and seemingly no spirit earlier in the week, I started thinking all hope would be lost [...]
Kemba tries to do it all against the Warriors
Hi y’all. It’s me, your tired typist burning the midnight oil so you don’t have to. If you watched the game and are coming here just to read my take on it, thanks to both of you! (No really, we see the numbers and thanks for making us successful. We’re here for you, but more importantly we’re here because...
