The Charlotte Bobcats continued their losing ways this year on Wednesday when they missed out on the number one pick of the draft. After sporting a 7-59 record and the worst losing percentage in league history (.106), it seemed like they were for certain headed for the number one pick of the draft. In fact, everybody in Charlotte had pretty much banked on taking Anthony Davis at one since about mid-March. So what exactly went wrong Wednesday night?
Andre Iguodala made the go-ahead free throws with 2.2 seconds left and the Philadelphia 76ers rallied for a 79-78 victory over the top-seeded Chicago Bulls in Game 6 on Thursday night, advancing to the second round of the Eastern Conference playoffs for the first time since 2003.
Luol Deng scored 24 points, Carlos Boozer added 19 points and 13 rebounds, and the Chicago Bulls beat the Philadelphia 76ers 77-69 on Tuesday night to avoid a first-round playoff exit.
Spencer Hawes scored 22 points and Jrue Holiday had 20 to help the surprising Philadelphia 76ers beat the Chicago Bulls 89-82 on Sunday and take a 3-1 lead in their Eastern Conference playoff series.
Jrue Holiday scored 26 points, Lou Williams added 20 and the Philadelphia 76ers beat Chicago 109-92 on Tuesday night to even their first-round series in the Bulls’ first game since Derrick Rose’s season-ending knee injury.
The Bulls won Saturday’s game, but they have lost their point guard for the rest of the season.
The Bulls have won home court advantage for the first round in the Eastern Conference playoffs, with the Miami Heat having lost Tuesday night.
With two major events taking place this weekend in Florida, I thought one sport came up short while the other exceeded expectations. NASCAR showed the NBA that this is how you throw a party. So where did basketball go wrong and where did racing go right (or left if you really want to get technical about it)?
So last night I went to my first Bobcats game to see what all the fuss, or lack thereof, was this season. A few words came to mind as I watched the Bobcats taking on the Bulls: lackluster, uninspired and pathetic. So here is my recap of one of the worst basketball games I have ever seen.
