The game on 1/23/09 was a laugher in Charlotte. Phoenix was getting blown out so bad they pulled all the starters at the end of the 3rd quarter. It was downright shocking to the crowd in Charlotte to see such a blowout.
Larry Brown has really worked his magic in Charlotte. He has taught Gerald Wallace and Okafor the fundementals of pro ball they never knew. Brown has brought in the right talent to build a cohesive team. In recent games Boston, Portland and Phoenix have all seen the results of Larry Brown's work.
It will now be interesting whether Charlotte can reach the playoffs "this" year. They are close and playing better and better.
What an amazing turnaround!
