Rick Bonnell

Al Jefferson shot 6-of-9 first half. Rest of Bobcats: 9-of-30. That's good a reason as any why they trail shorthanded Hawks by six.

Rick Bonnell

Little kid was semi-run over in sideline scramble for the ball. He's fine now. Think he's enjoying the attention, too.

Rick Bonnell

Third foul for Josh McRoberts. Cody Zeller has two. So Anthony Tolliver in at power forward.

Rick Bonnell

End of first: Bobcats 26, Hawks 24.

Rick Bonnell

Big Al with his double-figure first quarter again.

Rick Bonnell

Wizards lead the Heat by 20.

Rick Bonnell

Al Jefferson 4-of-4. Rest of Bobcats 2-of-6.

Rick Bonnell

As best I can tell, Kemba Walker is moving fine.

Rick Bonnell

Kemba Walker appears OK to play, while three Hawks starters will sit out: blogs.charlotte.com/inside_the_nba…

Rick Bonnell

Kemba Walker (groin injury) got through shootaround fine and is expected to play versus Hawks tonight.

Rick Bonnell

The Hawks can't move above the eighth seed, so they have nothing tangible to play for tonight versus Bobcats.

Rick Bonnell

Starters Paul Millsap, Kyle Korver and DeMarre Carroll all sitting tonight for the Atlanta Hawks.

Final: Bobcats 111, 76ers 105. Al Jefferson wih 29 points and 12 rebounds.

Rick Bonnell

Washington beat the Bucks.

Rick Bonnell

Hawks lead Heat by 9 in ATL. Hawks win eliminates Knicks from playoff contention.

Rick Bonnell

Ridnour two assists short of a double-double.

Rick Bonnell

Lead was 16, now down to seven. So Big Al back in the game.

Rick Bonnell

Holding this lead means the Bobcats would finish .500 or better for second time in franchise history.

Rick Bonnell

Wizards beating the Bucks by 17.

Rick Bonnell

End of third: Bobcats 87, Sixers 78.

Rick Bonnell

Bobcats now have 50 points in the paint.

Rick Bonnell

So I guess this is the Rufus curtain call.

Rick Bonnell

Jefferson is at 27 points and 7 rebounds in 27 minutes played.

Rick Bonnell

These "MVP" chants getting louder for Big Al.

Rick Bonnell

Luke Ridnour with 10 points (on 4-of-6 shooting) and six assists.

Rick Bonnell

Al Jefferson didn't get his first technical this season until Jan. 24, but that was his fifth.

Rick Bonnell

Sudden rash of turnovers by the Sixers.

Rick Bonnell

Luke Ridnour gives Bobcats back the lead on back-to-back jump shots.

Rick Bonnell

Big cheer here when Bobcats show Gerald Wallace' s All-Star appearance. He's still the only Bobcat to have made it.

Rick Bonnell

Halftime: Sixers 59, Bobcats 56.

Rick Bonnell

Al Jefferson -- 21 points off 10-of-13 shooting.

Rick Bonnell

Byron Mullens with 11 points off the bench for the Sixers, who lead by 3. Bobcats have 6 turnovers, Sixers 1.

Rick Bonnell

Michael Carter-Williams strips Big Al for a run-out. Sixers lead 48-45.

Rick Bonnell

As you would imagine, Steve Clifford looked real animated in that timeout. Sixers shooting 56 percent.

Rick Bonnell

Bobcats letting a bad team shoot 50 percent from the field.

Rick Bonnell

Bobcats shot 13-of-19 that first quarter.

Rick Bonnell

End of first: Bobcats 26, 76ers 24. Al Jefferson 7-of-9 for 14 points.

Rick Bonnell

Big Al crouches under the basket. Michael Carter-Williams vaults over him entirely. Al just waits, puts in the layup.

Rick Bonnell

Byron Mullens attempting to guard Al Jefferson. Oh, my.

Rick Bonnell

Henry Sims is in the torture chamber.

Rick Bonnell

Nice connection between Luke Ridnour and Al Jefferson. Henry Sims is in for a rough night.

Rick Bonnell

Luke Ridnour's second start. Curious whether he's assigned to guard Michael Carter-Willams or James Anderson.

Rick Bonnell

Al Jefferson getting his East Player of the Month award at mid-court. Nice ovation from the crowd.

Rick Bonnell

Kemba Walker (groin) out again tonight, but MRI showed nothing serious: blogs.charlotte.com/inside_the_nba…

Rick Bonnell

No Kemba Walker again tonight.

Anthony Tolliver

Rick Bonnell

Last night Timberwolves' Corey Brewer scored 51. Or in Bobcats' terminology "A month of Biz."

Rick Bonnell

I'm not as big on standings-watching as some of you, but you know what tonight did? It made game vs. Bulls key for 1 or both teams.

Rick Bonnell

It says far too much about difference in conferences that Bobcats clinched a playoff berth before Warriors.

Rick Bonnell

The night the East standings went kablooey.

Rick Bonnell

"Great lesson: If we don't play the way we're supposed to play, we'll get out (butts) kicked." -- Al Jefferson.

Rick Bonnell

Final: Celtics 106, Bobcats 103. Bobcats gave up control of sixth in the East. It's the Wizards to control now.

Rick Bonnell

Celtics' Bayless has a right knee sprain. Will not return.

Rick Bonnell

McRoberts' 10th assist, to Gerald Henderson, for a 20-foot jumper and a tie game.

Rick Bonnell

Josh McRoberts' ninth assist of the night -- gorgeous little one-handed job to Al Jefferson in traffic.

Rick Bonnell

Celtics lead down to seven. This team is quite adept at blowing fourth-quarter leads.

Rick Bonnell

Washington beating Orlando by 10 with 1 1/2 minutes left.

Rick Bonnell

Knicks lead Toronto by seven. NY really needs that game.

Rick Bonnell

End of third: Celtics 84, Bobcats 75. Wizards up four at Orlando with seven minutes left.

Rick Bonnell

Anthony Tolliver technical. You don't anticipate that.

Rick Bonnell

Pistons lead the Bulls by 18 in Chicago at halftime.

Rick Bonnell

Jared Sullinger has a minor ankle sprain. Being re-taped. Sounds like it's likely he'll return.

Rick Bonnell

Bobcats don't have anyone who can guard Jeff Green right now.

Rick Bonnell

Now four fouls on Gerald Henderson and MKG. Bobcats running out of wings who can guard.

Rick Bonnell

Some guy just asked a girl to be his prom date via the Garden scoreboard. Like that better than timeout marriage proposals.

Rick Bonnell

This is sure not the Bobcats defense Brad Stevens was gushing about pre-game.

Rick Bonnell

Bobcats letting Gerald Henderson play with four fouls.

Rick Bonnell

Jeff Green is one tough matchup for MKG. That iso looked too easy.

Rick Bonnell

Halftime: Celtics 57, Bobcats 55. Methinks the playoff team is quite fortunate Rondo was a late scratch.

Rick Bonnell

Pistons are up 10 in Chicago.

Rick Bonnell

I'm thinking Gary Neal really enjoyed Brandon Bass switching off on him.

Rick Bonnell

Third foul against Gerald Henderson ends his first half.

Rick Bonnell

Al Jefferson with an open-court strip of Jeff Green. Maybe Big Al as the fill-in point guard?

Rick Bonnell

Bobcats pull ahead by nine. For those of you engaged by the Ridnour-Pargo debate (many based on tweets), lead was built with Pargo.

Rick Bonnell

End of first: Bobcats 29, Celtics 28.

Rick Bonnell

Celtics take a lot of bad shots early in possessions. Those teams tend not to win.

Rick Bonnell

Big Al has 14 points on 7-of-10 shooting. He must have heard I voted him 2nd team All-NBA.

Rick Bonnell

Celtics better get Jared Sullinger some help or Al Jefferson is going to stomp on him Godzilla-style.

Rick Bonnell

Nothing says NBA amazing like this Luke-Ridnour-Phil Pressey showdown.

Rick Bonnell

Gerald Wallace in street clothes. but still in pre-game huddle with Celtics.

Rick Bonnell

Celtics crowds gave Al Jefferson a big hand. He started out his NBA career in Boston.

Rick Bonnell

Bobcats' Kemba Walker, Celtics' Rajon Rondo both out for tonight's game. Walker could miss tomorrow, too: blogs.charlotte.com/inside_the_nba…

Rick Bonnell

Rajon Rondo will NOT play tonight for Celtics. Left shin bruise.

Rick Bonnell

No Kemba tonight. Maybe tomorrow. Ridnour starting.

Rick Bonnell

Kris Humphries (knee tendinitis) will play tonight for Celtics tonight.

Rick Bonnell

Tomorrow vs. 76ers is Bobcats' fan appreciation night. T-shirts to 1st 10K thru the doors, prize giveaways.

Rick Bonnell

Interesting stat on Bobcats-76ers games: The Bobcats have made more free throws (61) than the Sixers have attempted (59).

Rick Bonnell

Bobcats' last regular-season home game versus Bulls is now a 7 p.m. tipoff.

Rick Bonnell

Charlotte Bobcats point guard Kemba Walker "questionable" or worse with a groin injury: blogs.charlotte.com/inside_the_nba…

Rick Bonnell

I'd be surprised if Kemba plays tonight. So close to playoffs, his health is more important than toughing through a regular-season game.

Rick Bonnell

Kemba Walker is questionable for Celtics game tonight with a sore groin. He suffered the injury late in the Wizards game.

Rick Bonnell

RealGM says Pelicans are going to sign ex-Bobcat James Southerland.
