The Cats welcomed the 76ers and beat them in a fairly exciting game.

1st quarter
The Bobcats opened the game on a 6-0 run before the 76ers went on a 9-2 run to take a 9-8 lead with 1:45 left in the quarter. Neither team could make a good run and the teams ended the quarter tied at 13.

2nd quarter
Neither team could make a run until late in the second quarter. The Bobcats went on an 8-4 to finish the quarter up 33-27.

3rd quarter
The Bobcats hit a 3 with 5:34 left in the third to take a 39-30 lead. The 76ers had cut the lead to 7 with 3:13 left in the quarter when the Bobcats went on a run to extend the lead to 48-36 with 1:10 left in the quarter. The Bobcats held the big lead going into the fourth with a 51-39 lead.

4th quarter
The Bobcats opened the fourth with a show and took their largest lead in the game of 14. The Raptors hung around but could not make a serious run for most of the fourth quarter. The Cats had a 64-51 lead with 54 seconds left after hitting an and-1 on Brands 5th foul! Surprisingly the 76ers scored the final 5 points as the Cats won 64-56.

Odd Stat: Lou Williams hit only 1 of his 6 three point shots.

Ways to lose points (you will not lose skills by my command)

Everyone will start out with a 45 OVR prospect. Get a bunch of points and you might become the next Jordan!
