What: Bobcats (30-34) Vs. Wizards (33-30)
When: 7:00 PM EST
Where: Verizon Center
Alright Bobcats fans, the time of year you’ve all been waiting for has finally arrived. I’m happy to announce that we are nearing mid-March and the Bobcats are relevant. In terms of playoffs, seeding is more important than ever this year, as the difference between the 6th and 7th seed is tremendous. When you look ahead at Charlotte’s schedule, this is a game they need to win. Currently they are behind the Nets (-3.0) and Wizards (-3.5), so obviously from here on out, games against both Brooklyn and Washington are very important. The good news is that once the Bobcats get to April, things are relatively easy. When you look at the schedule, the Bobcats could be favored in all of their games in the last month of the regular season.
The task at hand is clear. Charlotte has a big chance to shrink the gap between them and the 5th seed tonight. Can they do it? I believe they can. I’m going to predict a 99-90 Charlotte victory. This group is playing very well as of late. Look for them to take the next step in winning a crucial game tonight.
