Charlotte Bobcats Getting Inside 2009-11-16

Charlotte Bobcats Getting Inside 2009-11-16You know that jump-shot-crazed team Larry Brown inherited at the beginning of last season? Different names on the roster, but it's back in Charlotte.

The Bobcats don't drive or post up as they should. They take an abundance of jump shots and make few. That's why they're on a four-game losing streak entering Monday's game at Orlando.

In a six-point loss Saturday to the Trail Blazers, the guards shot a combined 10-for-40 from the field. That led to a 29-6 run in the second and third quarters that was too much to overcome.

Co-captain Gerald Wallace diagnosed the problem quite accurately: "We're not attacking the basket, and we're not dropping the ball into the post."

That's in part because center Tyson Chandler, even by conservative measures, is a non-factor on offense. He took five shots Saturday (making two), and the Blazers outscored the Bobcats in the lane 34-26.

Meanwhile the point guards -- Raymond Felton, D.J. Augustin and Flip Murray -- combined for five assists while shooting 6-for-28.

"Our point guards have got to get (other) people some shots," Brown said.

TRAIL BLAZERS 80, BOBCATS 74: That it was this close, following a 29-6 Blazers run, showed how tough the Bobcats were defensively. But they're the worst offensive team in the league, and there's no quick fix for that.
