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.

Anthony Tolliver

That's how I feel about him too lol. Hes amazing @rspedel @Anthony Tolliver that's how bobcat's fans feel about Al Jefferson

Rick Bonnell

Things that make you go "huh?" 2 smart women in Boston talking about how 1 got into Chapel Hill and one didn't. Not the end of world.

Rick Bonnell

My burst-out-in-laughter moment: Someone innocently asked, "Do the Bobcats play on TV?" @BobcatsMartin must get the irony.

Rick Bonnell

Random thought: I'm a longtime Red Sox fan and I get that TV pays the bills. But the Yankees-Sox overkill undermines the sport.

You can't learn what it mean to PERSEVERE without suffering! #howwehandlethings

Bobcats have signed DJ White for the remainder of the season.

Rick Bonnell

Final: Bobcats 94, Wizards 88 in OT.

Rick Bonnell

John Wall will likely end up with a triple-double tonight, but he's 4-of-14 from the field.

Rick Bonnell

End of third: Bobcats 71, Wizards 66.

Rick Bonnell

And then Webster makes a 3.

Rick Bonnell

Wizards have missed all nine of their 3-point attempts.

Rick Bonnell

Remarkable the way this game started that Wizards are now outshooting Bobcats 50 percent to 41 percent from the field.

Rick Bonnell

Halftime: Bobcats 54, Wizards 41.

Rick Bonnell

Cavs are beating the Pistons by 30 in the second quarter.

Rick Bonnell

Wizards can do a lot of damage along the 3-point line. Not tonight: Bobcats outscoring Wizards from the arc 18-0.

Rick Bonnell

McRoberts has made four of six shots in his first game back from ankle sprain.

Rick Bonnell

And just like that on next possession, Biz called for a foul for impeding Nene at the other end.

Rick Bonnell

Nene gets two loose-ball fouls on same Charlotte possession.

Rick Bonnell

End of first: Bobcats 32, Wizards 18. Bobcats made 13 of 22 attempts.

Rick Bonnell

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist statement on his high school teammate announcing that he's gay: blogs.charlotte.com/inside_the_nba…

Rick Bonnell

Not exactly "playoff fever" at Verizon minutes before tip-off. http://t.co/1Ad3LMwfXH

Rick Bonnell

Josh McRoberts will play and start for Bobcats tonight. He missed the last three games with a sprained ankle.

Rick Bonnell

"We became a one-pass, or no pass, and shot (team). Can't do that." -- Wizards' Wittman on the 2nd half meltdown in Charlotte.

Rick Bonnell

Sounds like Nene can play about 15-20 minutes tonight versus Bobcats.

Rick Bonnell

Wizards have blown 11double-digit leads, only to lose, this season.

Rick Bonnell

"This is basically the biggest game of the season for us." -- Wizards guard John Wall.

Rick Bonnell

Henderson says this a "playoff game." Others wonder if this is all that: charlotteobserver.com/2014/04/08/482…

Bismack Biyombo

We all got some to say... The difference is How and when? http://t.co/gibRSJ5Dps

Rick Bonnell

Everyone counting Bobcats sure wins: Did you see Pistons beating Hawks? That's why Clifford is wary of standing-watch.

Rick Bonnell

Hawks threw away huge advantage for last spot in East tonight. Not saying Knicks can catch, but now NY has major incentive against Raps.

Rick Bonnell

It's a Mason Plumlee world tonight.

Rick Bonnell

So you ask yourself: How might LeBron James ever solve the mystery that is Mason Plumlee The new Mutombo.

Rick Bonnell

It would sure be nice if the Heat could find one way, someway, to beat the Nets.

Rick Bonnell

Everyone who claims if Bobcats beat the Wizards, they run the table: Did you see Wolves beating Spurs? Stuff happens.

Rick Bonnell

Brooklyn beating Heat by 3. Great stuff.

Rick Bonnell

BTW, Nets 3 behind Heat after winning first three. In the NFL this would be a very big thing.

Rick Bonnell

Pistons beat the Hawks start to finish: 1. Stop trashing the Pistons for tanking. 2. How could the Hawks be such a punching bag?

Rick Bonnell

A Nets-Heat second-round series would be really entertaining in this regard: Brooklyn has no reason to defer to the champs.

Rick Bonnell

I'd say Hawks are fickle, but that would imply this is within their control. @Chris Vivlamore must have no idea what he'll watch each game.

Rick Bonnell

Not saying Pistons ultimately win. But Pistons lead Hawks by 6 at halftime. Seems to negate a week of "Detroit blatantly tanking" chatter.

Rick Bonnell

Nene said at Wizards practice he intends to play (limited minutes) vs. Bobcats Wednesday. Hasn't played in 6 wks due to a bad knee sprain.

Kemba Walker

My son @Ryanboatright11 got off last night! The power is all in the chin hairs. Tell em fam!

Bismack Biyombo

If there is one thing in this world you should change... What will that be?

Rick Bonnell

Though nothing in stone, Steve Clifford sounds confident Josh McRoberts (ankle) plays vs. Wizards.

Rick Bonnell

All refs are dumb, beat writers are dumber. Tonight I told you who the best of the best are among NBA beat writers: blogs.charlotte.com/inside_the_nba…

Rick Bonnell

Ya know what tonight illustrates? People tell me there's an intense interest in the NBA in Charlotte, but it fades very quickly.

Rick Bonnell

I was asked a great question tonight; Which NBA beat writers are worth following. I answered frankly: blogs.charlotte.com/inside_the_nba…

Rick Bonnell

Someone just asked me who the best writer is in was NBA city. Can 't do that in 140 characters, but that's what Twitter should accomplish.

Rick Bonnell

Two NBA favorites for NBA COY -- Hornacek and Clifford -- were never NBA head coaches before this. Makes you wonder why who gets jobs.

Rick Bonnell

I watch a lot of Suns ball. Ball movement is exceptional, just like how Hornacek was as a player.

Rick Bonnell

Reminder: Bobcats playoff tickets go on sale Monday at 10 a.m.

Rick Bonnell

Hey @JayBilas the Suns have done so preposterously well Ryan McDonough can't be Sean's brother, can he?

Rick Bonnell

In all those things I default to Elton John's Rocket Man: "All this science I don't understand. Just my job 5 days a week."

Rick Bonnell

I'm saying this without judgment: Many of the same math people who saw Bobcats as a playoff lock long before me say 6th place unlikely.

Rick Bonnell

Maybe Hawks were all hypnotized into thinking they're playing the Bobcats today (11 on a row).

Cody Zeller

They recognized me at Jason's Deli so they offered me free ice cream. Then I got to the machine and it said FREE ICE CREAM. Very humbling...

Rick Bonnell

Hawks lead the Pacers by 31...in Indy! You Bobcats fans so sure you want them moving up to sixth?

Rick Bonnell

From last night: The post-game scene as Bobcats clinch second playoff berth in franchise history: charlotteobserver.com/2014/04/05/482…

Rick Bonnell

Woke up thinking what Jeff Van Gundy predicted: Bobcats would make playoffs because they really want to and many East teams don't.

Rick Bonnell

Pretty cool scene in that post-game locker room tonight: charlotteobserver.com/2014/04/05/482…
