What a week for Charlotte basketball: forcing Lebron James and the world champion Miami Heat into overtime, releasing sharp new Hornet’s paraphernalia, and now getting their biggest win of the year against the Los Angeles Clippers by the score of 95-91.
Oh, and if you saw our preview for the game, that score should look familiar as our own Jonathon Hoppe predicted that exact score for our ‘Cats. That’s the second time that The Charlotte Sports Blog has gotten a score precisely correct just in case you we’re wondering.
Anyway, it was the Bobcat’s exceptional defense that allowed them to beat Los Angeles as the Clips only scored 91 points which is the second lowest total they’ve scored all season. MKG, one of Clifford’s exceptional defensive specialists, lead the ‘Cats with two blocks and two steals.
On the offensive end, “BIIIG ALLLL” lead Charlotte with 24 points and 10 boards in his 19th double-double of the season. Jefferson showed once again that he can be more effective than the flashy and high flying youngins such as Blake Griffin and DeAndre Jordan.
Please get well soon, Kemba and go Bobcats!
