    I have a lot of respect for the Bobcats, as it's a heck of an accomplishment to have the number one rated defense in the league in terms of fewest points allowed and fewest points allowed per 100 possessions.

    Offensively, they have players that have to be respected also (Jackson and Wallace especially).

    Even though Charlotte is no slouch, with the Magic closing the season with 21 wins in 24 games, they are on a roll and I predict the Magic to win the series in 5 games.
