Charlotte Bobcats Getting Inside 2009-11-28

Charlotte Bobcats Getting Inside 2009-11-28It's hard to argue with the impact Stephen Jackson and Flip Murray have had on the Bobcats' offense.

Jackson's arrival in a Nov. 16 trade with Golden State coincided with coach Larry Brown using Murray more off the bench. In the first five games following that trade, the Bobcats shot 48 percent from the field vs. 39 percent in the nine games that preceded the deal.

Neither Jackson (41 percent from the field) nor Murray (39 percent) is shooting great. However, they both represent the kind of scoring threats defenses must always account for. That's opening up the game for Gerald Wallace, Derrick Brown and even center Tyson Chandler, whose offense previously was virtually non-existent.

"He helps everybody," coach Larry Brown said of Jackson, "because he's a scorer who commands attention and he's a good passer."

Jackson has averaged about four assists a game as a Bobcat, and Brown is searching for ways to better utilize his passing skills.

BOBCATS 94, CAVALIERS 87: The Bobcats got Cavs superstar LeBron James into early foul trouble and built a 24-point lead, then hung on despite missing their last 13 shots. They survived by holding the Cavs to 35 percent shooting in the fourth quarter.
