After the 104-65 rout of the Miami Heat in Charlotte last night, the Bobcats leap-frogged the Heat for the 5th spot in the Eastern Conference.
Since a 3-9 start, the Bobcats are 18-10 in their last 28 games and have the best record in the NBA in 2010 at 9-1.
They are 18-4 at home and they are 21-19 overall. Charlotte acquired veteran scorer Stephen Jackson in mid November and haven’t looked back since.
Not to be overlooked, coach Larry Brown has his team playing stellar defense; the Bobcats allow the fewest points per game in the league, 92.22.
In a league that has been dominated by the ‘elite’ teams over the last 5 to 6 years, it has seen more parity thus far in the 2009-10 season and the Bobcats are a big reason why.
