The Charlotte Bobcats started off this season strong until suddenly losing 18 games in row. That streak ended with a win against the Chicago Bulls Monday, with a final score of 91-81.
Some of the teams the Bobcats lost to range from the league’s top teams, like the Los Angeles Clippers and San Antonio Spurs, to lower ranked teams, like the Orlando Magic and New Orleans Hornets.
After losing game after game, the head coach of the Charlotte Bobcats, Mike Dunlap, decided to switch it up. According to the The Charlotte Observer, Dunlap said he put his offensive playbook in the freezer and chose to go with a motion offense, which is more unpredictable. This offense is better suited for a younger more agile team.
The new offense worked, not only helping the Bobcats beat the Bulls, but also helping them score more efficiently. They shot a stunning 47% from the field and an even better 58% in the final quarter.
Bloomberg reports that it’s the Bobcats’ first victory since November 24 against the Washington Wizards.
The Bobcats’ next game will be against the Cleveland Cavaliers.
