At the half:
Cavs 55, Bobcats 35
If you're out there watching this game, email me please. Please? Please? Let's face it, it was never really "close". The Bobcats hit 4-of-21 shots for a whopping 19 percent. At the end of two quarters, they're up to a staggering 31 percent. Yippee.
The Cavs defense is smothering the Bobcats defensively. They're contesting every shot, hold a rebounding advantage. Emeka Okafor and Gerald Wallace have proven to be non-factors thus far. Yes, the Bobcats made a run - when the second team was in - during the second quarter to get within nine points, but that only lasted until the regulars retunred and began to dominate.
