Game Story

CHARLOTTE, North Carolina (Ticker) -- Coach Bernie Bickerstaff told the Charlotte Bobcats to settle down and relax. By doing so, they made history. The expansion Bobcats won for the first time, defeating the Orlando Magic, 111-100 behind 20 points and 10 rebounds from Primoz Brezec. "These young men deserve this," Bickerstaff said. "They played hard. We made plays when we had to make plays." Guard Jason Hart, who had the best game of his career, presented the game ball to Bobcats owner Bob Johnson at the end of the game. "I was very pleased," Johnson said. "It showed a lot of class." Bickerstaff said his players were too excited and hyperventilating during their opening night loss to Washington and urged them to take it easy as the season progresses. Charlotte (1-1) held Orlando without a basket for more than 4 1/2 minutes late in the second quarter to take 49-42 halftime lead. The Magic shot just 28 percent (11-of-28) from the field in the opening two periods. "We definitely overlooked this team," Magic guard Steve Francis said. "When you overlook teams, these are the results you will get." The Bobcats kept up the intensity with a 15-2 run to start the third quarter, highlighted by an alley-oop pass from Jason Hart to Gerald Wallace, whose one-handed dunk made it 64-44. He scored 18 points and Hart added 14 and 11 assists, both career highs. "Coach told me, 'As far as energy goes, how you go is how the team goes,'" Wallace said. "So I tried to come out in the second half and give it my all. I just laid my body on the line and did what I had to do to help my team win." Emeka Okafor got the better of Dwight Howard in their first matchup as the top two picks in June's draft. Okafor, selected second after the Magic chose Howard, had 12 points and 14 rebounds while Howard managed five and 12. "I was a little overanxious tonight," Howard said. "Our intensity wasn't there until the fourth quarter. Hopefully, we won't continue to have games like this." "It was the Bobcats vs. the Magic, that's what it was," said Okafor, downplaying the matchup. "Dwight played an excellent game. He really impressed me out there. He's going to be an excellent player." Guard Steve Smith added 14 points off the bench for the Bobcats and teamed with Brevin Knight to provide a calming influence on the young team. "To be that veteran they look to and to get a chance to win it with them and get to be part of that first victory for the franchise, it was good for me," Smith said. Francis, who hit game-winning buckets in Orlando's first two contests, fouled out with just nine points. The Magic (2-1) failed in a bid to open with three straight wins for the first time since 1993. Orlando's Cuttino Mobley scored 17 of his 23 points in the fourth quarter before fouling out in the final minute.
