If we can limit good three point opportunities and control Howard with fouls then we have a chance to win.

Watch out world, UnderCats (Underdogs/ Thundercats, no?) go into Orlando take the first game, dominate the second. Then take the next two at home. Then we're going to dominate ATL in 6,beat Cleveland in 7, and meet the Lakers in the finals. It's going to be like the Panthers '04 playoff run. Cats/ Lakers championship game but this time CLT owns LA like they have for the past 5 years and CLT brings home it's first Championship. A dreamer can dream!! LET'S GO CATS!!! :D

We have a way better bench than the Magic, and if Jack plays balls out the Bobcats will win the series.

Honestly unless Stern has the Magic inked in for the Conference Championship, I think the Bobcats will take it 5.

I am not too sure about having a better bench than the Magic. I think Magic are one of, if not the, the deepest team. Redick shooting 40% from 3 is ridiculous. Then you got Gortat coming off the bench and he offers great defense around the rim. And you got Bass, who was underutilized, is a nice player as well.

EDIT:

Also, Wallace said of Howard, when asked about the match-up with Howard and Orlando:

"We've got to get them off that 3-point line and at the other end we've got to force him to play outside the paint,'' Wallace said of Howard. "And we've got to attack him. Everybody knows he's a shot-blocker, but we can't just let him intimidate us out of driving the lane.''

Like I said in another thread, Howard will play a huge factor on both sides of the ball. Like Crash said, we can't be scared of D12 and forced to take outside shots. That really isn't our strong suit.

I mean you can't do it position-by-position. Just look at the bench as a whole. Orlando's bench averages 32.1 points per game and Charlotte averages 26.7. It is hard to compare benches because you don't play benches all at once, they are mixed with the starters. But just my personal opinion is that Magic from top to bottom is better.

This is the matchup I didnt want for the Cats. Oh well, gotta go out there and deal with the cards your dealt with. The Cats can do this! Lets go Bobcats! Bobcats in 6!

Playoff basketball back in the great state of NC. Man, what an exciting time!

Our defense have to step up big time in the franchise first Playoff games. The key to eliminating the Magic is do what they did before when they beat them the last time they play against each other: contain Howard. If they can prevent Howard & Carter too from shooting much points, they got a chance to beat them & move forward. Good luck, 'Cats!! :)

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.
