Awesome.

I dont get to attend many Magic games (about 4 or 5 each year) and i love when they come to Charlotte.

This series will be over in 4 though. I mean lets face it. We are the defending Eastern Conference Champions and the only team in the East that poses any kind of threat is Cleveland, not lowly Charlotte.

Hope you guys cheer loudly for those 4 games though, it's cool to see Charlotte in the playoffs.

My write-up about the series:

It has been a historic year for the Charlotte Bobcats. This marks the first year that the Bobcats have had a winning record and have finally reached the playoffs after 6 years. Their first round opponent will be the defending Eastern Conference Champion, the Orlando Magic. This year the Bobcats and Magic have had some tough battles but the Magic won the regular season series 3-1. Charlotte’s win was the most recent game between the two teams and it came without Bobcat’s first All Star Gerald Wallace, who was unable to play. It was a good win on the road, something that the Bobcats need to do for them to advance to the next round. Charlotte’s road record has been poor and has been their Achilles heel all year long. Whether it is mental or the fact that they are not playing in front on their home crowd in Time Warner Cable Arena, the Bobcats know this area needs to be fixed soon. Without a road win vs. the Magic, the Bobcats will be sent home packing.

The Bobcats are one of the lower seeds that many analysts believe can give a higher seed, like the Orlando Magic, fits. The Bobcats have been arguably the best defensive team all year and that alone will keep you in games. Larry Brown basketball stresses defense and it has shown with this team. This Charlotte team makes a living off turning the ball over with many players on the Bobcats roster being able to guard multiple positions. The Trade-Deadline deals of Thomas and Ratliff have given the Bobcats a spark on defense. Defense will be instrumental if Charlotte wants to upset the defending Eastern Conference Champions. The Magic have a “pick your poison” type offense with Dwight Howard in the paint and the likes of Lewis, Carter, and Redick on the outside.

This opening round series between Charlotte and Orlando should be a good one and one that Bobcat fans will remember forever. Go Bobcats!

LOL you have no clue what is coming in your teams direction if you think that. I'm a Lakers fan but I regularly attend Bobcats games since I live in Charlotte now and they are for real. They have been playing good to great defense as of late and getting easy transition buckets. If Tyson Chandler keeps up the play he has had since the middle of March watch out. Don't think that TWC wont be electric either.....Charlotte has been waiting for basketball to make it back and now that their team is in the playoffs I fully expect the home games to be sellouts or damn close to it. To call Charlotte lowly is just asinine it wasn't to long ago that Charlotte went into Orlando and won by 7 without G-Force. Either way it should be a great series.
