Heat vs. Bobcats NBA TV Schedule: ESPN
The first statement that we have to make is a rather obvious one: The Bobcats are bad. They’re really, really bad. They’re 11-52 in their last 63 games, they are the most embarrassing defensive club in the game, and they really just generally stink. They’re not quite as bad as they were last year, but that’s not saying a whole heck of a lot either. This Miami outfit though, is a disaster waiting to happen. It’s no mistake that a team that looked like it was F Chris Bosh and the Idiots out there was beaten by double digits at home against the New York Knicks the last time out, and without F LeBron James, G Dwyane Wade, G Mario Chalmers, and G Ray Allen in the fold, this really does have the look of a team that is ready for the D-League, not some of the best that the NBA has to bring to the table. Unfortunately for Miami, this has the potential to be an embarrassing game, not the Head Coach Erik Spoelstra or GM Pat Riley really care about that. Charlotte has won five of its last six games here at Time Warner Cable Arena, and the only loss in that bunch was a one-point defeat at the hands of the Detroit Pistons. This might not be the same Miami team that is going to take the court here in a few weeks for the playoffs, but it is definitely still the Miami Heat, and that alone should fire Charlotte up. This is one of those days where David could beat Goliath, though we know that the “David” in this game could really care less.
