Personal Observations - 'Cats energy and defensive consistency is way up from last night's lost to Toronto.
Adrien and Hansbrough got into it a couple of times...
'Cats playing much better pick n' roll defense than they have of late but still fail to make the third or more rotation on defense...which IMO is the trademark of an inexperienced team.
Here's to hoping Charlotte continues to hustle and maybe sneak out of Indy with a win vs a hot Pacers squad.

'Cats - 65
'Cats end the quarter on a high going on a small run to erase an 8 point Indiana lead. The 'Cats have been doubling the pick n' roll for most of the third which I think has stalled Indiana's offense some. The 'Cats have also done well getting out on the break off made baskets.
LETS GO CATS!!!

Charlotte's ability to double the pick n' roll forced an adjustment by Indiana. Almost every pick n' roll was with D. West and he made the passes to beat the 'Cats.
That being said, Charlotte is improving...they just lack consistency on both ends and are in dire need of some post scoring.
