In their continuing quest to seek out new ways to lose in the most agonizing manner possible, the Bobcats discovered two gems this week. On Monday they went from hitting the Ben Gordon Lottery to flat broke in 5 minutes. On Wednesday they figured, “Why bother trying to defeat the Knicks ourselves when J.R. Smith [...]
Before most of Wednesday night's game have even completed, I'm pretty sure that Charlotte Bobcats guard Kemba Walker is going to get the award for the shot of the night.Watch as Mr. Walker drives to the hoop against the New York Knicks and somehow gets the shot to fall with an over-the-shoulder toss:
Back in the 1990's, ring announcer Michael Buffer made frequent cameos during NBA Finals games with his "Let's Get Ready To Rumble" trademark announcement.Well, Michael dusted off the routine for tonight's game between the Charlotte Bobcats/New York Knicks and he can still get it done:
I would have a joke for this post but since I don't have my prop trunk...I feel that I would be doing a disservice to a Carrot Top-related post.Last week, Mr. Top met Michael Kidd-Gilcrist, Byron Mullens, Reggie Williams and Gerald Henderson at a hotel in Oklahoma City: (Courtesy of USA Today)
As is often the case with NBA scheduling, mercy is in short supply. The guys have been dealing with some especially hard knocks of late. Perhaps, the scheduling gods thought, the time is ripe for an away/home back-to-back. Starting things off is a trip up to Milwaukee for a game against the streaking Bucks. Luckily for the Bobcats, the “Deer” have been streaking in the same direction...
CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) -- J.R. Smith hit a fallaway jumper from the left wing as time expired to give the New York Knicks a 100-98 victory over the Charlotte Bobcats on Wednesday night.
The Bobcats appeared in position to win late in the game after a miss by Raymond Felton with 14 seconds left, but rookie Michael Kidd-Gilchrist made an ill-advised pass and Smith intercepted it.
So far I’m 1-0 for the month of December. I’m pretty sure you are too, in regards to predicting the December record for the Charlotte Bobcats, but still. Undefeated is undefeated. The good news is, I didn’t really give Charlotte much of a chance in last night’s game with the formidable New York Knicks. Instead [...]
J.R. Smith had a great final ten seconds of the game against the Charlotte Bobcats on Wednesday night, grabbing a steal and sinking the game winner. Smith had an off night shooting, scoring only 13, but no two points were bigger than the two he hit at the buzzer for the win. Smith broke the heart of former Knick killer, and current Bobcats owner, Michael Jordan with this shot:
With Carmelo Anthony on the bench due to a cut finger, the New York Knicks needed to look for a new hero to beat the Charlotte Bobcats and collect their 13th win of the season.
That hero ended up being reserve guard J.R. Smith who had the ball in his hands with the score tied at 98 with less than four seconds to go in the game.
Watch as J.R. hits the game-winner over Michael...
Knicks @ Bobcats: MSG 7pm
The Knicks start their three game road streak tonight in Charlotte. The Bobcats started off the season very impressively, but have since regressed. They have lost four games in a row and are now 7-9. Their 7 win total thus far, matches their entire win total from last season. New head coach Mike Dunlap has done a tremendous job getting the most out...
This was a huge factor in tonight's game...too many turnovers...
This was a must see game. Seriously, this was the type of game that you really needed to see. You had the New Your Knicks, who are at the top of the Eastern Conference versus the Bobcats who, after last season’s mess, has shown a great deal of promise. Would this be the Bobcats/Knicks...
CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- J.R. Smith hit an 18-foot jumper at the buzzer to give the New York Knicks a 100-98 victory over the Charlotte Bobcats on Wednesday night. Smith's buzzer-beater came after the Knicks inbounded with 3.4 seconds remaining. They went directly to Smith, and he nailed a fallaway over the outstretched arms of Michael Kidd-Gilchrist. The basket capped a comeback...
