Coach Mike Dunlap has Charlotte Bobcats playing wellPosted by Inside Hoops
Michael Jordan’s Bobcats are the NBA’s most surprising team so far this season.
Charlotte (6-4) has won five of its past six games and is one victory away from matching last year’s win total.
The turnaround is impressive considering the Bobcats finished last season 7-59 and with the worst winning percentage (.106) in league history. They lost their final 23 games of the season.
But under the direction of defensive-oriented coach Mike Dunlap, they’ve been competitive and have developed a knack for closing games. Charlotte is 5-0 in contests decided by four points or fewer — and without much NBA experience on the roster.
