Charlotte looks to rebound after a tough loss last night to the Thunder. The Bobcats played well, but not in the eyes of Coach Clifford. Clifford openly expressed his disappointment in his team after the game. Claiming their lack of concentration and attention to detail was really upsetting. Hearing stuff like this from a first year coach is really encouraging. I truly believe Charlotte has found their coach of the future.
For the Hawks, this will be their first game all season without the services of Al Horford. Al has been a key part for them as he would be for any team. Horford is an All-Star quality center. Hopefully the Bobcats and Al Jefferson can take advantage of what should be a significantly weaker frontcourt.
PG: Jeff Teague
SG: Kyle Korver
SF: DeMarre Carroll (Questionable)
PF: Paul Millsap
C: Elton Brand
PG: Kemba Walker
SG: Gerald Henderson
Who wins the game?
I think Steve Clifford lit a fire under his team last night and they’re starting to realize how good they can really be. With that being said, I think Charlotte wins this game tonight. It won’t be easy, but they will get it done.
Charlotte 88 Atlanta 86
