[Live 08] Change! The Charlotte Bobcats - Closed

A collection of memorable Dynasty and Franchise threads.

Postby Valor on Tue Dec 23, 2008 12:13 am

Bobcats advance to Semifinals after 5 games

After 5 Games, The Charlotte Bobcats have accomplished the first part of their goal, by winning their first ever playoff series in their first ever playoff entrance, they look to do the impossible, winning a championship in the team's first appearance in the playoffs. Yuta Tabuse led all scorers in game 5 with 21 points, as they overcame Howard and Lewis' big nights, Howard with 17 points and 14 rebounds, and Lewis with a close triple double performance with 16 points, 14 rebounds and 8 assists. The Game was evenly matched and very intense, as the Magic came in with their backs against the walls, so to speak, they were trying to save their season, and nearly succeeded in doing so, but the Bobcats, who were looking for their first postseason series win, came up on top, 93-90.

Semifinals Preview
Image

Dallas (1) vs Denver (4)
ESPN Prediction: Dallas win 4-2
Notes: Dirk vs AI+Melo, both teams are high scoring teams, expect to see alot of run and gun and no defense..

LA Lakers (6) vs Phoenix (2)
ESPN Prediction: Lakers win 4-1
Notes: Phoenix has had a great year, but against the MVP and his Laker team....they'll be lucky to win more then one game

Charlotte (1) vs Detroit (4)
ESPN Prediction: Detroit win 4-3
Notes: Charlotte has had an amazing run thus far, but against the experienced (very experienced) Detroit Pistons....i wouldnt get my hopes high

Boston (3) vs Cleveland (2)
ESPN Prediction: Cleveland wins 4-3
Notes: A Rematch of last year's semifinals, this time, Lebron James has Mo Williams, while the Celtics have lost Posey, Brown, it'll be a close one, but i reckon King James would have his revenge this time round

So he suffers from Earl Boykins syndrome as us Americans know it? I used to tear it up with him on Live 06.
If I happen to need a 4th string point guard for my Rockets I'll look for him. :lol:

Charlotte takes Game 1 at the buzzer
Image

As time winded down to the final 30 seconds of the ball game, the Bobcats ran a set play designed by Larry Brown and found Jason Richardson open, he drilled in the 3 ball and gave the Bobcats a 3 point lead, however, Lindsey Hunter immediatly came back with a 3 ball of his own, the next 10 seconds included stops by both sides, and Charlotte called for time with 9.1 seconds remaining; It was in this play that OJ Mayo received the hand-off from Yuta Tabuse, penetrated down the middle, and then after bumping with Richard Hamilton and creating a little airspace, went up for the fadeaway jumper, hitting it as the buzzer sounded, giving the Bobcats a 98-96 victory.

Jason Richardson and OJ Mayo were on fire in this game, with the former going for a game high 27 points from 11 of 16 shooting, including 4 of 7 from 3, while the latter ended up with 21 points, tied for second highest in the game with Detroit's Rip Hamilton, from 8 of 16 shooting, with 3 of 7 coming from 3 point land.

The Bobcats look to build their series lead in Game 2 back here in Charlotte.

Note: i forgot to take a screen shot of Player of the game..sorry; was too pumped up at knocking down the game winner...

very dramatic (Y)
well, usually i penetrate down the lane with Tabuse and look for the open guy or take it to the hole, but the Detroit Defenses are just too tight...had to swing the ball around or use an iso play for one of my go-to guys

Wow, I am quite out of touch with dynasties. I just read all 6 pages of this thread and found them very entertaining. My only beef with this is that its unrealistic. You are too trade happy - I am guilty of this too, but its ridiculous to make 5 trades when you are on a winning streak. Also, the storyline with Leo on the team and the growth spurt is out there, but I am just nitpicking. Good work with this.

You should really start Mayo though. Has your Leo character even broken double digits yet?

long time no see Lamrock!! welcome back :D
well, yeah, i traded too much and i regret that...but it's more realistic with this team cause guess who is the head coach? Larry Brown!! lol..that makes it a bit better
as for Leo on the team, yeah that story is crap...i was bored :lol:
He is a spot up jump shooter that averaged 12.2 points in the regular season in limited minutes, but i have no idea why...he cant hit his usual open shots here in the playoffs, and is only averaging something like 5 ppg, i dont want to start Mayo simply he wont get his shots in the starting lineup (Shaq, Beasley, J-Rich), those guys all need their shots so...it's much better to leave Mayo with the second unit, and with people like DJ, Davidson, Ariza...Mayo has no problem hogging the ball and shooting the lightsout :D i am considering making a change to my starting lineup, and taking Leo out of it since he's struggling..maybe i'll try put him back in the front office and retire..somehow

anyways thanks for still following (Y) stay tuned for more stuff..once Christmas is over :)

Charlotte Escapes the Pistons with Game 2 Victory in OT
Image

After they made a comeback in the second quarter and made up for their terrible, 18 point 1st quarter, and then continued their run in the 3rd with stellar defense, the Bobcats lost their lead and almost lost the game at the hands of "Mr Big Shot" Chauncey Billups, who made a possible game winning shot at the end of regulation, except for the fact that it left his hands after the buzzer rang, and after the short break, with Larry Brown shouting every second of that break, and 5 minutes of a fierce battle between the two teams, the Bobcats were able to escape with a 110-105 victory over the visiting Detroit Pistons to take the series to lead 2 games to 0.

Larry Brown was not happy.

"I though that, if they didn't started to relax and felt they had the game in the bag starting the 4th quarter, we never have had to play that damn overtime." said Brown at the end of the game "the guys got complacent with the lead, and blew it, we almost lost a game in a series because of that, i am not pleased at their efforts and mentality at all."

"Going by what Coach Brown was saying, i'll admit right here that we really did not put up our full effort in that fourth quarter, we are very lucky to have won the game, because, anytime you are facing a team as good as the pistons, you cant get complacent, but that's just what happened, i'll take full responsibility for the lack of effort tonight" said team captain Jason Richardson after the game, Richardson had an off night, going 5 of 13 for just 12 points. "We are certainly going to give it all we got when we are in Detroit"

nonetheless, the Bobcats now have a 2 to 0 advantage in this series against the Pistons and would look to take a crucial game 3 and take it to an almost win situation of 3-0, no team in the NBA has ever come back from a 3-0 playoffs series to win it.

Bobcats Survives Another Late Collapse, Takes Game 3
Image

The Bobcats had another great second quarter, outscoring the Pistons 33 to 18, but got complacent with their lead once again in the second half, and it almost cost them the game, again.

Jason Richardson led the way for the Bobcats with 25 points, followed by Michael Beasley's 17 point 13 rebound 6 assist performance, but they almost got beaten by the Piston's backcourt of Rip Hamilton and Chauncey Billups, who scored 33 points and 28 points 10 assists, respectively. Yuta Tabuse was named the Player of the game once again with another near triple double performance of 10 points 12 assists and 8 steals, 6th man OJ Mayo had a quiet night with 14 points.

Richard Hamilton fired a 3 pointer with 3 seconds remaining in hopes of winning the game, but the shot was off the mark and Tabuse secured the rebound and ensured a victory.

"we were very fortunate to be able to come up with the win, we lost another big lead, and luckily did not lose the game" said Larry Brown

The Bobcats now have a 3-0 series lead on the Pistons, no team has ever come back from down 0-3 to win a playoffs series, but that's the situation that the Pistons are facing right now, it'll be a crucial game for Detroit in game 4.

haha, only way i thought of to pull him back to the Front Office, Matt Carroll was hurting my team's chemistry anyways, so i have a reason to cut him now :)
bad thing about it is i dont have a real backup at SF anymore, and Coby Karl would be in my active rotation....

Detroit fends off determined Bobcats in OT thriller
Image

OJ Mayo sank in a 3 with 1.1 seconds remaining in regulation to send the game into overtime, however, he was unable to hit the potential game winner in the extra period, and the Detroit Pistons survive an onslaught attack from the Bobcats, who, led by OJ Mayo, Jason Richardson, and Yuta Tabuse, were determined to try and win this one and sweep the Pistons for their former 17 year old teammate who was involved in an accident a few days earlier that put an end to his playing career.

Richard Hamilton was the man in this night for the Pistons, even though he unsuccessfully defended OJ Mayo at the end of regulation, which made the game go into OT, he scored a game high 41 points from 18 of 32 shooting from the field, and had some specular plays throughout the course of the game, the Other Piston that deserves commendation is Rasheed Wallace, who pulled down a game high 18 rebounds and scored 20 points for his team.

Jason Richardson was not happy about the loss, but said that it's only more motivation to finish this series as soon as possible, and they'll show no mercy for the Pistons, Richardson was involved in a heated discussion with Chauncey Billups after his teammate Yuta Tabuse was sent to the floor flying from a foul by Billups, and it very nearly gave him a technical foul.

The Pistons have lost their backup Guard, Will Bynum to injury. Bynum was injured after a collusion with Trevor Ariza late in the third, he has a Sprained Knee and would not be available for action.


The Series is now 3-1, Bobcats lead.

J-Rich, Bobcats blow past Pistons, Advances to Conference Finals

Jason Richardson was upset that they did not close out the series in game 4, and said that he'll show the Pistons no mercy once they return home for Game 5...he did exactly that tonight, dominating the game and scoring a career high 53 points from 21 of 35 shooting, and also had 6 assists, 3 rebounds, and 4 steals in 27 minutes of play.

The Pistons were led by Richard Hamilton, who had 35 points, and Tayshaun Prince, who scored 23 in the night. Chauncey Billups struggled offensively, but dished the ball well for a game high 17 assists. However, it was not enough to defeat the Bobcats.
"They were just a lot more fierce then us, they came out fired up, played with an intensity that we just did not bring out, it's a disappointing end to the season, but i hope we can use this as a motivation to make a comeback next season" said Pistons Head Coach Michael Curry

It was a very physical game, with some plays from the Pistons which arguably were flagrant, such as Kurt Thomas throwing Bobcats Guard Tabuse onto the floor on a layup attempt, and doing the same thing to Trevor Ariza a few plays later. No flagrant calls were made during the game, but after the game, the officials reviewed it and have fined Thomas for a total of 10,000 dollars.

The Bobcats now advance to the Eastern Conference Finals to take on either the Defending Champions Boston Celtics, or Lebron James' Cleveland Cavaliers.

Semi-Finals Results, Conference Finals Preview
Image

Dallas vs Denver
Denver Wins Series 4-2
Notes: Iverson's will and hopes of winning his first ring helped him to propel his team, with his offensive explosion, Dirk, Jason, and the rest of the Mavericks could only stand aside and watch, as the Nuggets advance to the Conference Finals

LA Lakers vs Phoenix
LA Lakers Wins Series 4-0
Notes: Kobe was unstoppable, as usual, but what really got Phoenix a no-win series was Pau Gasol, he averaged around 28 and 12 in this series, enough said.

Charlotte vs Detroit
Charlotte Wins Series 4-1
Notes: Charlotte won 3 close ones, then had a close lost to the Pistons in Game 4, powered by their frustration of losing that game, and their hopes of winning the series for their ex-teammate, they blew by the Pistons and advances to the Conference Finals, Jason Richardson was on fire.

Boston vs Cleveland
Cleveland Wins Series 4-3
Notes: not quite deja vu, but almost there. Like last year's series, this game went to game 7, in Boston, but this time round, Lebron James came out on top, as he defeated the defending champs with a 47 point performance in game 7.



Image

Denver (4) vs LA Lakers (6)
ESPN Prediction: Lakers win 4-2
Notes: Lakers are a very, very good team, and most likely it would be a one sided series, if not a sweep, but Iverson's performances last round against the 1st seeded Mavericks just makes you wonder if something amazing could happen again....

Charlotte (1) vs Cleveland (2)
ESPN Prediction: Cavaliers win 4-2
Notes: The regular season series between these two teams were 3-1 in favor of the Cavs, and Lebron James' performances in the Boston series was enough to make everybody believe it's his time. Looks like this is the end for the Bobcats..or is it?
