The Cleveland Cavaliers and Charlotte Bobcats are two of the worst teams in the NBA , but over the weekend both teams won on game winning shots.
First the Cavs, there were down by two to Toronto but that had the ball with 12.6 seconds left. Irving walked the ball up court and calmly knocked down a three pointer with .7 seconds left to give the Cavs the one point victory. This already gives Irving 5 game winning shot in his young career.
While the Cavs walk-off win was pretty the Bobcats was anything but. The Bobcats were down 2 to Minnesota with 23 seconds left but they had the ball. As you watch the video below you will see the Bobcats nearly turned the ball over about 3 or 4 times but with 5 seconds left Henderson made a three pointer to give the Bobcats the win.
This win snapped a 16 home court losing streak for the Bobcats.

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...
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...
CLEVELAND (AP) -- A person with knowledge of the situation says the Cleveland Cavaliers are exploring the possibility of signing center Greg Oden, the former No. 1 overall pick whose NBA career has been sabotaged by injuries.
The Cavs are doing their due diligence while looking at Oden, said the person who spoke to The Associated Press on condition of anonymity because the team...
The Rajon Rondo ACL injury was a major disappointment on Sunday.
The NBA—especially its postseason—is a markedly better product with Rondo involved. When healthy, his unique skill-set has the ability to change the outcome of not only playoff games but also an entire series on a moment's notice.
Something we are certainly well aware of as Cavaliers' fans.
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. [...]
