Game Thread: Charlotte Bobcats at Orlando Magic 3/28


This seems like it should be an easy win, but the Bobcats can't take this one for granted.

The Magic have Tobias Harris, Nikola Vucevic and 2013 BCP draft man-crush Victor Oladipo on their squad and they have a fairly decent 16-18 record on their home court so they absolutely can not be taken lightly.

So how do you guys feel about this game? Are you worried? Is it a trap? Or am I just needlessly being paranoid about this matchup?

    I'm always worried, especially with games like these.

    One of those "this could/should be an easy win" games. I don't remember us winning one of those easily, we always find a way to somehow make it difficult. Orlando is a better team than Milwaukee, Philly or Utah, they have players that can really deliver big numbers in Vucevic, Harris & Oladipo + we know that Nelson ALWAYS shoots like Ray Allen against us. I don't give a damn how we win this one, we can play the worst game of our season but as long as we have 1 more point than them when the final buzzer sounds, I'll be a happy man.

    I have less confidence in our divisional games than any other. I don't know if the record bears it out but it seems like if we didn't have to play divisional games, we'd be well above .500 now. So no, I don't think it's paranoid.

    Our divisional record is 2-9 right now, that's the worst in the league... Every other team has won at least 3 divisional games, that's terrible.

    Wow! That's far worse than I imagined. It just seems like these div foes always have our number. Wonder if that serves as good bulletin board material for tonight and the remainder of the season.

    TRAP CITY, bitch,

    While I agree that "trap city" could apply, I just don't get the impression that Kemba, Al and especially Coach Clifford will allow that to happen. 

     

    And by "that" I mean taking our opponent for granted. I expect us to have a solid showing and ultimately, take care of business. 

     

    I am going to miss tonight's game and it will be my 1st one missed (live or tv) in a long time. Ironically, I will travelling to Charlotte with my AAU team playing in the State Championships but unable to catch the game.  We have a shoot around tonight during game time and no way to record. It's killing me to miss this game.

    Jameer Nelson is back for tongiht's game, is that any surprise? Is there any guy who shoots it better in Time Warner Cable than him? Definitely a trap game, Orlando beat Portland last game out, they have nothing to play for and no pressure, if you have noticed lots of teams have been dropping games against the bottom lottery teams recently, we can't afford to be one of those if we want that 6th spot.

    17-10 start. Bobcats are looking good so far.

    I love that one fan McRoberto still has in Orlando.

    30-14. I almost feel sorry for the Magic.

    There's no need to feel sorry for the Magic because this is what they actually want. In fact, I'm happy for them. Keep on panzering.

    The Magic have it down to single digits.

    Didn't we blow a big lead versus Orlando once earlier this season?

    Vucevic has the same amount of rebounds as our entire team.

    He is on pace for 32 rebounds.

    Refs are absolute sh*t tonight.

    Nelson has always looked like he wears eye shadow or something.

     

    and about the refs...Bevetta is reffing so of course they suck tonight :)

    Who is this damn O'Quinn character?

    Who is this McBob character?

    Vucevic loves to go over the back for tips and rebounds. I seriously wonder how he doesn't get called for 2 or 3 a game at least.

    Mackey Rose has to loving this performance.
