The 15-5 Cats hosting the 7-13 Suns
The Bobcats opened the game on a 16-5 run for the first 4:39 of the game. The Suns began to chip away at the lead and by the end of the first quarter they were down by only 4 at 19-15.
In the second quarter the Suns continued to take it to the Cats and won the quarter 17-8. The quarter also featured Eric Gordon picking up his third foul with 1:20 left to go.
In the third quarter the neither team could make a serious run for the 2:15, at this point the Suns were up 41-35. Then the Cats went on a nice 11-0 run to finish the quarter up 46-41!
In the fourth quarter the Cats extended their lead to 59-47 with 3:32 left in the game. It looked as though the Suns had no chance. As it happened the Bobcats did not score for the rest of the game as the Suns went on a 10-0 run! Somehow the Bobcats were able to keep the Suns from scoring from the 2:21 mark until 31.8 seconds left when the Suns hit a two to come within 59-57. The Bobcats could not score on their next trip and the hometown crowd held their collective breaths for the last few seconds as the Suns tried demoralize the Cats with a three. Thankfully, the three was not close and the Cats won.
Odd Stat: Kevin Love won the game-ball as he went 7-7 from the field for the night.

Hello Folks, Jack here, you know what that means... Craziness in the Sports world!
Announcer 2 - Ralph
Oh no! Don't tell me Manfred Nissley is at it again!
No he is not the instigator of this craziness. Check out this news.
On December 12 the Hawks signed AK47. The Hawks are really scary now. (updating roster page soon.)
Also on the 12th the Hornets signed Chris Kamen to a 6 year deal. Stern should be investigated.
BUT THAT IS NOT THE BIG NEWS!!!!
On December 13 after the Bobcats Suns game the Suns traded... get this... Nash and Markieff Morris to the Jazz for Devin Harris and Raja Bell!!!!
What a stupid move! The Suns just got killed in the interior by Love and they trade away one of their bigs for a shooting guard that they do not need!
What about Nash?
What about him?
Jack he was the main piece of this trade.
Now that I think about it, what coup for the Suns!
I think his tea got spiked again!
Also on the 13th the Pacers sent Pendergraph to the D-League.
We now bring in our NBA analyst Trevor.
Trevor, what do you think of this trade.
Duh.... Go Suns? "Plunk."
Well, I think Trevor just passed out. See you at the next big news in the NBA. Yo! Trevor! Your wife is here!
AUUUGGHHHHH, it's not my time yet!!!!
I wonder what he meant by that?
Uh, oh! His wife died three years ago!
