With all the hype and intisapation for the season to start, the Bobcats surely did disapoint. Heading to Boston to play one of the power houses of the east the Bobcats looked to play the "right way" against a team that played in Cleveland the night before.
Who knows what went wrong but the Bobcats had a horrible outing in their opening game scoreing a franchise low 59 points. Never scoring more than 18 points in a quarter. No one could pass, no one could score, and they barley rebounded worth a hoot!
Boston looked stellar in their home opener and dominated every aspect of the game. Ray Allen lead the way with 18 points, 2 rebounds, and 2 assists in 38 min. Followed by Pierce who had 15 points, 3 rebounds, and 4 assists in just under 25 min. Garrnet added 10 points, 7 rebounds, and one assist in just under 26 min. These three alone could have defeated the Bobcats.
Charlotte had no answer for anything. As useal Crash Wallace did the most work scoreing 10 points and 12 rebounds in almost 38 min. Follwed by Felton with 9 points, 4 rebounds, and 3 assists in 23 min. Derrick Brown was the best off the bench with 9 points and 4 rebounds in just over 20 min.
With such a horrible outing its really disapointing to get behind this team. But knowing coach Brown will get them playing the "right way" soon enough is a good sign for the future.
Unfortunitly here in Charlotte we were hopeing for a playoff spot this year and if the first game is any indication of the season we are a long way off. Hopefully coach Brown will get things turned around soon or it will be a long year. Next game is at home versus the Knickerbockers Friday night. Lets hope its not as embarassing of an outing as the last one.
