Charlotte Bobcats vs Golden State Warriors: Game 26 Preview

Well it looks like the world is still spinning, so the Charlotte Bobcats will still take on the Golden State Warriors tonight.

The last time the Bobcats played the Warriors David Lee and Stephen Curry went off.

Curry to the tune of 27 points, seven assists and seven boards. Lee to the tune of 25 points, 11 boards and four assists.

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist scored 17 points, grabbed four rebounds and had three assists, and Kemba Walker scored 24 points and dished six assists.

Still, the Warriors won 104 to 96.

The Bobcats shot just 37 percent from the floor and turned the ball over 15 times. They also got out-rebounded 46-39.

Golden State was 45 percent from the floor and had 28 assists on their 38 shots.

For the Bobcats to win tonight they’re going to have to do a few things.

For starters, they’ve got to shoot better. The ‘Cats aren’t going to win any games shooting below 30 percent from the floor. Their defense just isn’t good enough.

Also, they’ve got to hold onto the ball. If they lose the turnover battle, even by one, they’ll have a hard time defeating the Warriors.

Finally, they’ve got to make more buckets off assists. A lot of this falls on Walker, who’s averaging six assists per game, but guys like Ramon Sessions and Gerald Henderson have to chip in a few dimes, too.

If Charlotte can’t do any of that, they’ll likely lose their 14th straight game.
