IT'S OVER! IT'S OVER!

The Charlotte Bobcats' most recent of double-digit loss streaks has met its demise with today's early afternoon game against the Chicago Bulls.

Even without Michael Kidd-Gilchrist who was an late scratch, the Bobcats held off the inconsistent Bulls to hang on with a 10-point win.

This is going to sound weird, but I don't think the Bobcats deserve as much credit for winning this game as the Bulls do for losing it. Chicago lacked effort and focus. Their roster also didn't look that talented. Before I get ahead of myself, the Bobcats' defense wasn't as bad as it's been in the past. The rotations looked decent, but the Bulls missed so many decent looks, it was surprising.

On paper, this may have been an easy victory in the paint for Chicago. But Joakim Noah was barely a factor and Carlos Boozer had an inefficient 19 points on 18 FGA. The Bulls got plenty of looks inside through being able to get good positioning and make entry passes but the Bobcats played the paint well on defense, and made shots for the big guys difficult.
