Two weeks ago, the Bobcats had four wins all season. Over the last 14 games, however, Charlotte has nearly matched that total with three victories. And while a 3-11 record isn't a great accomplishment, this team should feel a sense of pride because they're still young (only one guy in their starting lineup is over the age of 25) and trying to find their way in a shortened NBA season. If they can continue to gel together while shoring up the holes in the roster during the off-season, the 'Cats should be a lot better next year. —Jose Martinez
