Posted March 05, 2013 on AP on Fox
LaMarcus Aldridge had 23 points and 14 rebounds, and the Portland Trail Blazers handed the Charlotte Bobcats their seventh straight loss with a 122-105 victory on Monday night. Nicolas Batum and Damian Lillard each finished with 20 points for the Blazers, who had seven players in double figures and shot nearly 60 percent from the field. Meyers Leonard, Portland's 7-foot rookie center, came off the bench to score a season-high 15 points. Ramon Sessions had 18 points off the bench for the Bobcats, who have an NBA-low 13 wins this season. Rookie Michael Kidd-Gilchrist had 17 points. The Bobcats were playing the second of a back-to-back and looked like it. They lost 119-83 at Sacramento on Sunday night after the Kings scored 43 points in the third quarter.

Rick’s picks week 18: The weekly Portland Trail Blazers’ all-stars

Top Blazers After slowly watching their record dip well below the .500 mark, the Portland Trail Blazers finally started getting back to some winning basketball. Even though the previous week saw a split (a loss to Denver, then a win against Minnesota), one aspect of Portland’s game is incredibly different; that change lies with the play of the Blazer bench. Putting up league worst...

Tyrus Thomas Now Exists in Fans’ Cubicle Calendars Only

According to Rick Bonnell, Tyrus Thomas didn’t even join the team on the latest West Coast road trip. I find this stunning, considering that coach Dunlap has shown he’ll still play guys who are willfully insubordinate (Ben Gordon) or who are willfully trying to eat their way onto a future season of The Biggest Loser [...]

NBA legend Michael Jordan has more to worry about, as it's being reported that another woman (making it two) have come out and claims that Jordan is INDEED the father of her child.According to Gossip Extra, the woman, Pamela Smith, is claiming that Jordan and her had sex, which produced a love child.

Bobcats In a Tailspin

Tonight, I forgot there was a game.  Apparently, so did the Charlotte Bobcats.  That’s a bad joke thousands of people make all the time.  I often make it.  My dear sweet, long suffering mother often asks, “Are the Bobcats playing tonight?”  I respond with the incredibly ingenius “Well, they were scheduled to, but they forgot [...]

A Winning Vision For The Portland Trail Blazers

Long term goals provide vision for people and organizations alike. They make you consider what you’re aiming for, prompt you to think about what you really want. A short term goal, on the other hand, is where the rubber meets the road. These are the day-to-day mileposts that make you consider what’s important and what just gets in the way of reaching your ultimate prize. The...

Bobcats-Trail Blazers Preview

While the Portland Trail Blazers were one of the league's worst rebounding teams during February, they opened this month with a season-best effort on the boards. Portland shouldn't have much trouble building off that performance on Monday night when they host the NBA-worst Charlotte Bobcats, who have been historically bad on the glass lately. After a season-worst four-game...

Michael Jordan’s new Charlotte-area home (GALLERY)

Newsflash: Michael Jordan is worth a lot of money, that is, if you count $650 million as a lot.  As insane as it sounds (and it sounds incredibly insane), MJ still pulls in $60 million in royalties…ANNUALLY. So when Jordan went and spent $2.8 million, it was no big thing.  But hey, it’s still a $2.8 million home.  He bought it to not live out of a suitcase when he’s in town...

CC video of the day: Charlotte pushes to reclaim 'Hornets' name

Ever since it became official that New Orleans will drop "Hornets" and become the "Pelicans" next season, Charlotte is in full force trying to reclaim the team's original nickname to replace "Bobcats." Titled "Let's take back our buzz," (which sounds like some motto for hard core drinkers) check out the video of the push for "...

Bobcats Leave Tyrus Thomas In Charlotte On Four-Game Road Trip

Tyrus Thomas is signed through the 2015 season.

BOBCATS CONTINUE TO DEPRESS, FALL TO KINGS 119-83

We need a silver lining, right?  Gillie the Kidd shot 50% from the floor, was perfect from the free throw line, and grabbed 6 boards.   Watching Bobcats games as of late is becoming hazardous to any fan's health.  It is one thing to watch a young team develop its youth, and see its youth growing while they lose by reasonable margins, but it is something completely...

Saturday Night Fantasy Basketball Recap!

By: John Fortney – Staff Writer (@jfort753) You Maynor or may not want to add this guy! It was a short night in the NBA last night with only four games going so I’m starting you off with a possible deep league add if you are looking for assists. It’s my man Eric Maynor, with 7 points 1 rebound and 12 assists in 31 plus minutes. Maynor was very quietly acquired by the Portland...

BOBCATS SHOW UP BUT LOSE ANYWAY

Well, after a spirited afternoon of email exchanges that involved everything from cries for Coach Dunlap’s head, to headed defenses of the man, to Salma Hayek and Jennifer Lawrence, to corn dogs, and back to Coach Dunlap, it’s time for another Cats game. (No, we never take a day off, and that’s only a tiny glimpse at what you’re missing by not being part of the staff here...
