Yeah, it was a good performance out of May. It really showed what he is capable of and the talent he has. If he hadn't gone out with that injury last year I think we would be talking about him as much as we talk about Felton.
What a phenomenal game against the Bucks. Only wish that I could have watched it rather than just listened on the radio!
The radio commentators again talked about the need to cut one more player from the roster by Monday and their impression of those on the bubble: Walter Hermann, Alan Anderson, Burleson and B-Rob. My personal wish is that the Cats keep B-Rob. He really does add to the game when he is needed.
GREEN BAY, Wisc. - Charlotte 126, Milwaukee 124, 2OT Name a sillier concept in sports than overtime in the preseason.
Both teams' starters were long gone and the Charlotte Bobcats and Milwaukee Bucks were running out of reserves. So when veteran Othella Harrington put up a 15-foot jump shot at the buzzer of the second OT, both teams quietly willed it through the basket.
Prayer answered. Bobcats 126, Milwaukee Bucks 124 in the most irrelevant 10 minutes of basketball you could have witnessed.
Some decent offense (Gerald Wallace had 29 points) trumped some pitiful defense for the Bobcats, 2-5 in the preseason. The highlights included Sean May's shooting -- he swished a 3-pointer in the first overtime to erase a two-point deficit -- and rookie Adam Morrison's all-around playmaking.
Morrison scored 18 points, and made two sharp passes that should have resulted in baskets. But the big men aren't quite ready for his draw-and-dish moves.
The Bobcats also aren't ready to defend with any consistency. That was coach Bernie Bickerstaff's primary complaint, particularly after Bucks forward Charlie Villanueva hit eight of his first 11 shots en route to 25 points.
"Offensive (May) is pretty ...good,'' Bickerstaff said, immediately changing the subject.
"But our collective defense was atrocious.''
It may have taken 2 overtimes but we are finally beginning to close out these games. Good little winning streak going here.
