WASHINGTON -- The Charlotte Bobcats have already matched last season's win total. The Washington Wizards are still seeking win number one after yet another painful, late game loss. Byron Mullens scored 20 of his 27 points after halftime and Reggie Williams atoned for a costly foul by drilling the go-ahead 3-pointer as the Bobcats clawed past the winless Wizards 108-106 in double overtime on Saturday night. Washington remains the only winless team in the NBA and the loss extended the franchise-record skid for season-opening losses to 11 games. Martell Webster led the Wizards with 21 points and Nene added 19 in gutty performance, his first home game this season. Six Bobcats (7-5) scored in double figures, including Ramon Sessions with 21. Ben Gordon, one of three Bobcats' to foul out, had 19. Last season Charlotte finished 7-59, setting the NBA record for season-worst winning percentage. Two of the Bobcats' victories have come over the Wizards, who have lost severa...

Ted Leonsis continues to blog about sticking together and not making changes. Sometimes I see his blog posts as a slap to the fan, like we don’t know what the real problem with the organization is — the General Manager Ernie Grunfeld. The media knows it, the bloggers know it, and most importantly the fans know it. The only person at this time who doesn’t seem to know what needs...
I’ll start off with a full confession: I didn’t see the second overtime of the Bobcats win against Washington, because I had recorded the game and only gave myself a half-hour buffer afterward. But even if I had been watching the game live I might not have seen it, because I probably would have passed [...]
WASHINGTON (AP) -- Byron Mullens scored 27 points, Ramon Sessions had 20 and Ben Gordon added 19 as the Charlotte Bobcats earned their seventh win of the season and kept the Washington Wizards winless with a 108-106 double-overtime victory on Saturday night.
Last season, the Bobcats went 7-59 in the lockout-shortened season, the lowest winning percentage in NBA history, but have...

It was a pretty crazy night in Washington on Saturday as the Wizards tried to claim their first victory of the season over the over-.500 Charlotte Bobcats.
The game went past regulation, as the both teams battled it out in overtime. Wizards forward Chris Singleton was able to draw a foul to get three foul-shots with .4 seconds remaining in the game.
Singleton caused quite a scare...
Something’s happening lately in Charlotte, North Carolina that is slowly catching the attention of NBA fans: the Charlotte Bobcats are winning basketball games.
This isn’t a pratical joke, or an attempt at humor. This is the same team that finished last season with a 7-59 record and lost their final 23 games. The Bobcats are currently 6-4, which puts them one win away from...

His performance wasn’t as breathtaking for DC fans as it would be with RG3 per se, but at sub-100 percent health, Nene gave the Wizards every drop he had, and all but fulfilled his role as the Savior of the Sea Dogs. You can blame @kevinhine for that reference...
Previously on That NBA Lottery Pick, we have shown you some classic clips from the folks over at Network of Champions.In this video, the folks over at the NOC hang out with Washington Wizards star guard John Wall as he tells of his rise from unknown prospect to NBA star:
I got a hard time from some fellow Bobcats enthusiasts this week for a gaffe on Charlotte’s winning streak. That was my bad. A few people also said I was over-reacting to the Bobcat’s 5-4 start. I disagree there. It was another narrow win, but the Bobcats got past the Toronto Raptors 98-97 on Wednesday [...]
Yeah...this is a nasty dunk by Taylor. Enjoy!It wasn’t supposed to happen this quickly. Every once in a while a team comes out of nowhere and forces the league to take notice. The Grizzlies have been perennial doormats of the Western Conference for example, and suddenly they’re the hottest team in the league. The Charlotte Bobcats, another team performing way above expectations...
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- Atlanta Hawks coach Larry Drew warned his team to take the Charlotte Bobcats seriously and forget all about their record last season.
It sure looked as if his players were listening.
Al Horford had 26 points and 13 rebounds, and the Atlanta Hawks beat the Charlotte Bobcats 101-91 on Friday night for their fourth consecutive victory.
Horford called it one...
The Charlotte Bobcats appear much improved on the heels of their historically woeful season.
The Washington Wizards, meanwhile, are currently stuck in their own forgettable futility.
Two teams headed in different directions meet Saturday night when the host Wizards look to end their worst start in franchise history against the surprising Bobcats.
Charlotte knows a little something...
