ESPN’s John Hollinger Highlights Bobcats D
The Bobcats continue to garner some cautious praise in the mainstream basketball media, this time from ESPN’s NBA Insider, John Hollinger. In Wednedsday’s PER Diem column, Hollinger breaks down just how the Bobcats are getting it done on the defensive end:
“…the Bobcats are the second-toughest team to get a shot against; oddly, for such a slow-paced team, Charlotte forces turnovers by the bushel. The Bobcats are second in the league in opponent turnover rate at 17.2 percent, second only to the breakneck, gambling Warriors. And here’s another surprise: Once we adjust for pace, the Bobcats are more likely than the Warriors to generate said turnover with a steal, with an 8.2 percent to 8.0 percent edge.”
