Bobcats clinch franchise's first playoff berth


By Larry Holder, for NBA.com

NEW ORLEANS (NBA.com exclusive) -- Larry Brown didn't look or sound like a guy who's team just clinched it's first playoff berth in the history of the Charlotte Bobcats.

"What is that? Some of the best of times, and the worst of times?" the Bobcats coach said. "It's a miracle. I'm not a happy man."

Happy or not, here come the Bobcats to the postseason as Charlotte seesawed its way to a 104-103 win over the New Orleans Hornets on Wednesday night. Charlotte nailed down the playoff berth with the win and Toronto's loss earlier Wednesday against Boston.

Brown had good reason to be miffed.

The Bobcats led by as many as 26 points, and then put it in cruise control. So much so that they lost the lead late on the fourth quarter as the Hornets led 97-89 with 3:44 left in the game. Then Charlotte showed resolve going on a 15-3 run highlighted by D.J. Augustin's 3-pointer with 15.8 seconds left in the fourth quarter turned out to be the game-winner and playoff clincher.

Augustin said he had a good feeling the shot was going in, especially after two 3-pointers on his previous two shot attempts.

"We should have never let it get to that point," Augustin said, who finished with 14 points. "We should have kept them down, but that kind of stuff happens. We kept fighting. We stayed strong mentally."

Tyson Chandler should have felt an extra sense of satisfaction as the Bobcats clinched a playoff berth against the Hornets, a team that traded him twice within about a year span. Chandler played with a bit of vigor with 16 points and 10 rebounds. Yet he realizes roller-coaster efforts won't turn into wins come the postseason.

"A win is a win, but he's always going to coach," Chandler said. "We did some incredible things in the first half, and we had a big let down in the second half. The important thing is that we got the win. We do need to learn from this. We can't continue this going into the playoffs."

As bad as the Bobcats have been in previous seasons, Brown thought a prediction of 36 wins this season was a little generous. He also said he didn't think the Bobcats were a playoff team when he he saw this year's roster initially. But Brown pointed to the additions of Stephen Jackson, Larry Hughes and Tyrus Thomas as an attitude changer for himself.

Chandler said he knew from the onset of the season that Charlotte had playoff potential.

"I felt like this was a team that had some talent and was aggressive, but just didn't have pieces to get them over the hump," Chandler said. "Then we started making moves and starting getting those pieces in place. I knew we'd be here at this time of the year."

Jackson may not have taken the shots in the clutch, but he certainly was the catalyst for the Bobcats as he scored a team-high 29 points. Raymond Felton added 12 points, while Boris Diaw had 10.

Through the nearly improbable comeback win, the Hornets received more discouraging news Tuesday as Chris Paul will miss the rest of the season with a torn ligament on the middle finger of his right hand. Paul won't need surgery, but he won't resume basketball activities for another seven weeks.

Paul will have missed 37 this season with injuries to his knee, ankle and finger.

"It has been a very difficult season for me in terms of injuries," Paul said. "I hate not being out on the court helping my team, but the best thing for me to do is to get completely healthy. I am hopeful to be back playing basketball by June."

Marcus Thornton led the New Orleans charge with a game-high 36 points, while fellow rookie Darren Collison added 24 points and nine assists.

It may be hard for Brown to ponder the Bobcats making the playoffs in the fashion they did, or for Charlotte to make the postseason from what he saw on the roster from the beginning of the season.

There is one person, though, who Brown said would make sure he's pleased with the Bobcats clinching their first playoff berth in franchise history.

"But like my wife, she'll probably text me and say, 'Yeah!'" Brown said.
