Wow, what a game. The game was close all the way through. In the final seconds, Irving needed a three to tie and came short as the Bobcats lose to 1st place Heat 74-71. Wade scored 20 points, Lebron scored 17, and Ray Allen put up 13 in the win. The Bobcats got a great game from Boozer who put up 22 points. Irving also put up 12 points and 9 assists in the loss.
- The Bobcats lost Cartier Martin to a separated shoulder and he should be out a while. Martin injured himself in the 3rd and was having a good game with 10 points before exiting. Charlotte will get MarShon Brooks back for the next game and he is expected to start. Jordan Crawford will move to the bench to allow for the move.
