The Charlotte Bobcats' lack of playoff experience is absurd compared to the Miami Heat. Gary Neal is saving grace: charlotteobserver.com/2014/04/17/484…

Rick Bonnell

Coming up at 10:15 or so. Bald silly man talks nonsense to the fabulous @MikeSolarte

Rick Bonnell

Josh McRoberts connects all the Charlotte Bobcats' dots: charlotteobserver.com/2014/04/17/484…

Rick Bonnell

Headed over to @ESPN730 to do the 6 o'clock hour on Bobcats basketball.

Rick Bonnell

Headed over the News 14 and ESPN730 to talk Bobcats playoffs.

Rick Bonnell

The difference in playoff experience between the Heat and Bobcats is stunning: blogs.charlotte.com/inside_the_nba…

Rick Bonnell

My early prediction: Bobcats' 16-game losing streak to the Heat ends this playoff series.

Rick Bonnell

If Bobcats reach Game 6, it would be in Charlotte May 2. Time TBD.

Rick Bonnell

Bobcats' 2 guaranteed home games are Saturday April 26 and Monday April 28. Both games 7 p.m. tip-offs.

Rick Bonnell

Sorry, but I have no game info yet beyond Game 1. NBA will release a schedule sometime overnight.

Rick Bonnell

Al Jefferson on playing the Heat: "Why not go against the best? Regardless we'd learn something."

Bismack Biyombo

Man got to thank God for this season! Great night.. Thanks to all the fans and we see you in the playoffs!! #God #Biznation

Rick Bonnell

Wizards take care of business in Boston. Bobcats open against the Heat Sunday at 3:30 p.m.

Rick Bonnell

Bobcats have held the Bulls scoreless for nearly six minutes. Chicago has missed seven shots in OT.

Rick Bonnell

Overtime on Kemba Walker's miss. Amazingly some people are leaving.

Rick Bonnell

Wizards lead by 14 end of first.

Rick Bonnell

Ends of third: Bulls 60, Bobcats 59.

Rick Bonnell

Ball in Biz's hands late in possession = shot clock.

Rick Bonnell

Al Jefferson banged his left knee. He will return.

Rick Bonnell

Team doctor just walked to Bobcats locker room.

Rick Bonnell

Al Jefferson limps off court. Back to trainer's room.

Rick Bonnell

Halftime: Bobcats 43, Bulls 39.

Rick Bonnell

Bobcats recover from 10-point deficit. Lead by two on Gerald Henderson's drive to the rim.

Rick Bonnell

Revenge of D.J...

Rick Bonnell

End of first: Bulls 21, Bobcats 16.

Rick Bonnell

Bobcats 6-of-20 from field, including Big Al's 1-of-5.

Rick Bonnell

Bobcats doing a white-out for playoff home games. If they play Heat there will be plenty of red-and-black.

Rick Bonnell

MKG with Bobcats' first basket. Seems a concerted effort these days to get him started early.

Rick Bonnell

No idea when games 3 and 4 in Charlotte would be.

Rick Bonnell

Bobcats would open Sunday, on ABC, if they play the Heat. Saturday if it's the Raptors: typepad.com/site/blogs/6a0…

Rick Bonnell

If Bobcats play Heat, Game 1 is Sunday at 3:30 p.m.

Rick Bonnell

Mostly people want to joust on Twitter. That's sad.

Rick Bonnell

I tried hard when someone sent me an email with a question to offer a serious response. Wish Twitter worked the same way.

Rick Bonnell

Thanks for playing, Nets. Lovely parting gifts await...

Rick Bonnell

Bobcats coach Steve Clifford would much rather get his team back on point than worry about getting to 6th in East: charlotteobserver.com/2014/04/15/484…

Rick Bonnell

Kemba Walker said he's fine now after first game back from groin injury.

Rick Bonnell

Asked if Al Jefferson should be All-NBA, Steve Clifford said he can't imagine a player who has been more essential to his team's success.

Anthony Tolliver

"But thank God! He gives us victory over sin and death through our Lord Jesus Christ.” 1 Corinthians 15:57 #tGbtg

Rick Bonnell

Tie game with six minutes left on a Luke Ridnour jump shot. He's 5-of-7 from the field.

Rick Bonnell

Fouls now definitely an issue -- Al Jefferson and Josh McRoberts with four each. Clifford sits Cody Zeller for Anthony Tolliver.

Rick Bonnell

Bobcats getting MKG more involved offensively this quarter.

Rick Bonnell

I really liked Lou Williams in Philly. But when you chuck up a 3 one second into a fresh shot clock you better make it.

Rick Bonnell

Fourth foul on Josh McRoberts. Cody Zeller in.

Rick Bonnell

Steve Clifford talked pre-game about what a diverse offense the Hawks have. I suspect assistant coach Quin Snyder plays a big role in that.

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.

Rick Bonnell

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.
