Charlotte Bobcats Getting Inside 2009-11-09

Charlotte Bobcats Getting Inside 2009-11-09How is Gerald Wallace shooting just 31 percent from the field? It all but defies basketball logic that one of the game's best drivers is making so few of his field-goal attempts this season for the Bobcats.

Some factors: Wallace almost never makes jump shots, and he had a league-high 13 shots blocked in his first five games. That's gotten inside his head and he admitted Friday he's lost confidence offensively.

That can only get worse Tuesday versus the Orlando Magic, when Wallace will be driving on a magnificent shot-blocker in Dwight Howard.

But there is a bright side to this: Wallace decided if he isn't shooting, then he'll focus on rebounding. His 14.8 boards per game are fixing what was a constant flaw for the Bobcats the past five seasons.

The Bobcats outrebounded their opponents in each of the first five games this season, the biggest factor in them going 3-2. Wallace is almost singularly the reason for that change.

BULLS 93, BOBCATS 90: The Bobcats are only as good as they defend and rebound, and they did neither in the second half. The Bulls shot 21 of 35 after halftime and outrebounded the Bobcats by eight. That was just enough for Chicago to make up a nine-point deficit.
