Game 10
6-3 Cats v 4-6 Blazers
The Bobcats came into the game looking to continue their winning streak and the Blazers came in looking to get closer to .500.
The Game was very close for the entire first quarter and the Cats took a 16-14 lead into the second quarter. The Cats had a 28-22 lead in the second quarter with 3:13 left in the quarter. The Blazers then went on a 16-0 lead before the cats scored three points with no time left in the quarter. The Blazers led at this point by the score of 38-31.
In the third quarter the Blazers led 41-35 before the Cats went on a 10-0 run of their own. With 57.6 seconds left the Blazers retook the lead 45-46 and 13 seconds left Nate Robinson committed his fourth foul and because the Blazers' player was in the act of shooting the player went to the free throw line and hit both shots putting the Blazers up 48-45. The Bobcats went on a 5-0 run to go into the fourth up 50-48. The Bobcats led 55-50 with 5:38 left in the game when the Blazers went on a 5-0 run and tied the game on three pointer with 4:34 left. The Cats hit a three 16 seconds later. The Blazers the went on a 7-2 run to take a 62-60 lead with 1:41 left. The teams kept trading baskets and with 36.6 seconds left the game was tied. The cats hit a two and then made a nice defensive stop. The Blazers fouled with 6.4 seconds left and the Cats only hit one free throw! The Blazers called a timeout.
Here is the play-by-play "The Blazers are coming out of the timeout. He is looking to pass. Looking. Looking. Looking. Screen set by one of the bigs. The Bobcats left the former Bobcat Gerald Wallace wide open in the corner! HE IS WIDE OPEN! HE GET THE PASS! FOR THREE!!! BOOOM!! Wait! His foot was on the line! The Bobcats quickly get the ball up-court in an effort to get away from a fouler and the Bobcats hit a three to just to put this game out of reach." 

Sorry I forgot to get the Team comparison!
