Default Injury-riddled Cavs fall to Bobcats, who are now 2-0 under Paul Silas

Not that 2-0 means much, but it's a nice start. Anyway

Bobcats beat Cavs 101-92, move to 2-0 under Silas -- The AP reports: Yells and grimaces have been replaced by slaps on the back and wide smiles. Freelancing and creativity have taken the place of forced shots and shot clock violations. And, at least for now, wins are being substituted for losses as Paul Silas remains unbeaten as Larry Brown’s replacement in Charlotte. Stephen Jackson scored 38 points, D.J. Augustin added 28 and the Bobcats moved to 2-0 under their interim coach with a 101-92 victory over the undermanned Cleveland Cavaliers on Wednesday night... Jamison scored 18 points and Ramon Sessions, one of the few remaining healthy guards, scored 22. Jackson made 13 of 15 free throws, added six rebounds and four assists and had only two turnovers two nights after throwing it away nine times. Augustin hit 10 of 14 shots and the Bobcats got a boost when Gerald Wallace returned after missing five games with a sprained left ankle. Wallace had nine points and 10 rebounds and even with Tyrus Thomas (wrist) sitting out, the Bobcats had more than enough to handle the Cavaliers, who played only eight men.
