Charlotte Bobcats Coach Mike Dunlap Insists Team Is Getting Better

Jeremy Brevard-USA TODAY Sports

It was back to business as usual for the Charlotte Bobcats after a modest two-game NBA winning streak ended Saturday night in a 92-91 loss to the Detroit Pistons.

But the Bobcats came very close to extending their streak to three. Despite the loss, coach Mike Dunlap still was upbeat about his young team.

“There’s no questioning, the team is getting better,” he said. “We’re playing Saturday at a time of year where most teams let go of the rope. We’re in a good place. We wanted to win the game but I’m really proud of where we’re at. We’re playing as a unit and we look like a team.”

Gerald Henderson continues to play extremely well for the Bobcats, who were all but sure they had their third straight win secured against the Pistons.

“We just couldn’t come up with the defensive stops,” he said. “We played some good D for a while there in the fourth quarter, but we couldn’t come up with the stops late. And then I don’t think we scored that many points in the fourth quarter. I think we scored 15 points in the fourth quarter which will never help you win.”

The Bobcats, at 16-53, have 13 games remaining and perhaps can set avoiding 60 losses as a goal. That won’t be easy Sunday night when they play at the Miami Heat. Dunlap has the team playing well and having fun despite not having the playoffs in their future.

Playing well is about all they can do at this point of the season.

Hornets Inexplicably Allow Durant Free Dunk

While I understand that Oklahoma City Thunder SF Kevin Durant is physically intimidating when driving the lane, the Charlotte Hornets should be ashamed of themselves for the defensive effort they put forth during this play. I mean, they didn't even try. The Hornets have made some solid strides this season, but boneheaded mental collapses like this will prevent them from continuing to build momentum.
