The Charlotte Bobcats believe they have a real shot at making the playoffs for the first time in franchise history. And now might be a good time for everyone else to start believing it, too.
That’s because for the second time in two tries, the Bobcats have beaten the mighty Cleveland Cavaliers. This time, they did it on the Cavs’ own court, emerging with a 91-88 victory Sunday for their first-ever win at Quicken Loans Arena.
Prior to Sunday, the Bobcats were 0-10 lifetime at The Q, making Cleveland the only Eastern Conference city in which they had never won. It should also be noted that the Bobcats beat the Cavs back in November in Charlotte, guaranteeing themselves at least a split in the four-game season series.
