Cats take on the Kings + Updated Standings!

The Bobcats welcomed the Kings to the awesome city of Charlotte. The 10-15 Kings made the Bobcats mad when they said the  19-5 Cats were over-rated. The Bobcats decide to put the Kings away early and they did just that!

1st quarter
The Kings thought they were proving their point when they went up by four to start the game. The Bobcats quickly took care of that while going on an 11-2 run to take an 11-6 lead with 4:53 left in the quarter. The Bobcats were leading 15-13 with 2:44 left in the quarter when they went on an 8-0 run to finish the quarter. Garcia picked up 2nd foul with 1:17 left in the quarter, but that did not matter much as neither team scored for the rest of the quarter.

2nd quarter
The Kings pulled to within 7 at 28-21 with 4:45 left in the quarter when the Bobcats went on a 7-1 run to take a 35-21 lead with 2:39 left. The Kings then went on an 8-4 run to close the gap to within ten by the end of the quarter.

3rd quarter
With 2:12 left in the third quarter the Cats led 50-40. The Bobcats then went on a 10-3 run to take a 60-43 lead heading into the fourth quarter after Thornton picked up his 4th foul!

4th quarter
With 3:56 left in the fourth the Bobcats led 67-51 and the Kings were getting mad. Their plan had not worked and the Bobcats were toying with them! The Kings decided to get down to business and 14-6 run to finish the game and get the lead under single digits.

Odd stat: Dahntay Jones tried his best to be the last Bobcat to score but not one of his 7 shot went in!
