In their three-year existence, the Charlotte Bobcats have never beaten the Los Angeles Clippers. Friday's matchup could be Charlotte's best chance yet to end that drought.
The Bobcats hope to win their third game in a row when they host a struggling Clippers team that has lost five straight.
Charlotte (24-41) snapped its season-high eight-game losing streak with consecutive wins over Orlando and Sacramento this week. The Bobcats averaged 115.0 points in those games, while shooting 50.9 percent from the field overall and 61.9 percent from 3-point range.
The key 3-pointer in the Bobcats' 111-108 victory over Sacramento on Wednesday came from an unlikely source. Sean May, who was 0-for-6 from beyond the arc in his career prior to Wednesday's game, went 2-for-2 including the go-ahead 3-pointer with 16 seconds left.
May had 20 points and 12 rebounds on the night, and is averaging 15.7 points while shooting 57.1 percent in three games since returning from a knee injury that sidelined him for 20 contests.
28th ranked Bobcats are facing off against the 15th ranked Clippers and are projected to win by a margin of .5 points or more. Surprisingly, in my opinion, Bobcats have a 52.3% chance of victory, giving the Clip-Show a 47.6% chance.
