PREVIOUSLY, THE CHARLOTTE BOBCATS...have won four games in a row, three of those wins coming on the road. Sure they were @Sacramento, @Golden State, and @LA Clippers, but are Hawks partisans really in a position to cast any stones vis-a-vis road wins? Tuesday night, they returned home and blew out the Bulls, 96-80. I recommend reading (if you have not already) the column John Hollinger wrote about the Bobcats following that win.

Consider this an open thread for all pre-game, in-game, and post-game (but pre-recap) thoughts.

I especially enjoyed the play where we were inbounding the ball from the opposing baseline with 7 seconds left on the clock, only for Woodson to call timeout to draw up a play where Al gets the ball cutting backwards towards the inbounder and then had to turn, dribble the length of the court and take a contested shot to beat the clock.

That was the best you could come up with? Really?

You're talking about the guy who put Flip Murray back in the game with four minutes left apparently so he'd have a good view of Raymond Felton blowing past him repeatedly.

Don't get me started on the screen/roll Charlotte ran over and over and over again to exploit Bibby in the first half.
