Default Early in season, Bobcats stealing ball nicely

Remember a week ago when Charlotte Bobcats coach Mike Dunlap said he based his starters in part on who gets the most deflections?

It’s showing. While this is just the second week of the NBA season, the Bobcats’ best trait so far is ball security: They steal it as well as anybody and protect it as well as anybody.

The Bobcats commit a league-low 11.5 turnovers per game. Their opponents turn over the ball 20.5 times per game. That ratio – an extra nine possessions per game to the Bobcats’ favor – ties the Atlanta Hawks for best in the league.
