If you're a team that's struggled to win games of late, particularly ones that you were well within striking distance of, there's not much better than seeing the Charlotte Bobcats show up on the schedule.

The Bobcats have three wins on the season, are on pace for, oh, let's say six on the year, and have struggled in every respect.

In other words, if there was a game the Raps might have penciled in as a W, it's this one.

However this is still an NBA team we're talking about here. As we heard from Rufus On Fire earlier today, a lot of the team's struggles were unfortunately thanks to injuries and as guys like DJ Augustin and Corey Maggette return, up goes the team's chances at getting wins.

So the bottom line here is that the Raps can't take this one for granted. Sure, they're playing a depleted team lacking in talent, but it's not as if the Dinos themselves are world-beaters. This is still going to take a top notch effort otherwise we could see a repeat of the Raps embarrassing loss to the Wizards, earlier this season.
