Halftime score: Charlotte 47, Cavs 43
* Second quarter wasn't nearly as crisp as the first. Second unit of J.J. Hickson, Danny Green, Jamario Moon, Boobie Gibson and Loren Woods quickly squandered 10-point lead after first quarter.
* Sloppy/careless passing by Cavs stalled offense before it could get started. At defensive end, Bobcats penetrating too easily.
* Danny Green caught Javaris Crittenton on a chasedown block to cheers of the crowd. Must be where LeBron learned it. Unfortunately, it was the highlight of Green's first half. He struggled badly.
* Funny moment: Jamario Moon missed a jumper from the top of the key. As the Cavs ran back on defense, Byron Scott hollered down "You want me to shoot that for you?"
