Notebook: Bobcats 96, Cavaliers 94 (OT)


Brian Dulik, for NBA.com
Posted Sun Apr 06, 2014 12:09 AM - Updated Sun Apr 06, 2014 12:09 AM

THE FACT: The Bobcats clinched the second playoff berth in franchise history by beating the Cavaliers in Cleveland.

THE LEAD: Center Al Jefferson scored seven of his team-high 24 points in overtime as the Charlotte Bobcats (39-38) edged the Cleveland Cavaliers 96-94. Jefferson also grabbed a game-best 15 rebounds as Charlotte advanced to the NBA playoffs for the first time since 2010. Point guard Kemba Walker added 20 points and seven assists for the Bobcats, while rookie power forward Cody Zeller had 12 points and a career-high 11 rebounds. All-Star point guard Kyrie Irving amassed a career-high 44 points, seven boards, and a game-best eight assists for the Cavaliers (31-47), who were outscored 14-12 in OT.

QUOTABLE: "I thought we would be good, but I think we've exceeded everybody's expectations -- even our own. It's night and day with the attitude and the confidence and the approach to the game that everyone in this locker room has."
-- Bobcats shooting guard Gerald Henderson

THE STAT: The Bobcats posted the worst record in the NBA over the last two seasons at 28-120, but are 39-38 in their first campaign under coach Steve Clifford. The only players left from those dismal squads are Walker, Henderson, and center Bismack Biyombo, who helped Charlotte establish an NBA-record low .106 winning percentage in 2011-2012 by going 7-59. "Everyone in the locker room is excited -- and they should be -- because we've got a good group of guys who are truly deserving of this," said Clifford, who was hired on May 29, 2013.

TURNING POINT: Charlotte held a 93-91 lead with nine seconds left in OT when Irving missed an uncontested 3-pointer from the top of the arc. Henderson snared the rebound and promptly made two free throws to extend the Bobcats' advantage to 95-91. Center Spencer Hawes buried a three to cut the Cavaliers' deficit to 95-94, but Jefferson went 1-for-2 from the foul line with 2.3 ticks remaining to complete the scoring. Cleveland had no timeouts left, forcing Hawes into taking an 84-footer at the buzzer that was on line before falling short.

QUOTABLE II: "Words can't describe this moment, especially for me, Gerald, and Biz. We were the original guys here, and we were on the worst team in the league for my first two years. So to go from there to here, it's like night and day."
-- Bobcats point guard Walker

HOT: Bobcats shooting guard Chris Douglas-Roberts, who was out of the league at the start of the season, played all of OT and finished with nine points and six rebounds in 31 minutes. ... Biyombo had seven rebounds in 12 minutes off the bench. ... Bobcats small forward Michael Kidd-Gilchrist played one night after landing hard on his back during a win over Orlando. ... The Cavaliers are 15-14 since firing general manager Chris Grant. ... Irving shot 16-for-31 from the field, including 5-for-9 on 3-pointers, and 7-for-8 from the foul line in the highest-scoring game of his NBA career. ... Cleveland shooting guard Dion Waiters blocked three shots.

NOT: Cavaliers point guard Jarrett Jack went 1-for-8 from the field, making him 10-for-30 since being removed from the lineup three games ago. ... Waiters, who replaced Jack as a starter, missed 11 of his 16 field goal attempts and only had one assist in 36 minutes. ... Cleveland's team -- excluding Irving -- shot 19-for-65 and scored 50 points. ... Cavaliers power forward Anderson Varejao had four points, three rebounds, and six fouls. ... Bobcats point guard Gary Neal served as their sixth man, but failed to score or dish out an assist in 19 minutes. ... Neal and Cleveland shooting guard Alonzo Gee fired consecutive shots off the edge of the backboard.

QUOTABLE III: "As big of a game as it was for me, I would trade all of it for a win. This was probably one of the biggest games of my career thus far, just the magnitude of it and how much it meant to all of us, so to lose like that hurts."
-- Irving

GOOD MOVE: Irving spoke with the media before the game, specifically to deny rumors -- being spread by an ex-Cavaliers beat writer with strong ties to Grant -- that he wants out of Cleveland. "It's gotten to a point where I needed to say something because it's all (expletive)," the No. 1 overall pick in the 2011 NBA Draft said. "The barrage and little bit of attack, I've been getting it all season and I definitely don't deserve it." Irving is eligible to sign a contract extension with the Cavaliers this summer and is unquestionably the most popular athlete in town. "I can't say it enough," he said. "I love the city of Cleveland and I love my teammates."

BAD MOVE: The Cavaliers entered the weekend two games behind Atlanta in the race for the final Eastern Conference playoff spot, but were blown out 117-98 at the Hawks on Friday. Cleveland then had its postseason hopes all but extinguished with its home OT loss to the Bobcats. "These were the biggest games that a lot of guys on our team have played in during their NBA career," Cavaliers coach Mike Brown said. "And as a group, we didn't respond well to it." Cleveland remains in the postseason hunt mathematically, but would need to win out -- and have Atlanta go 1-6 and New York go 1-4 in order to qualify for the first time since 2010.

NOTABLE: Charlotte is 3-14 all-time at Quicken Loans Arena, but went 2-0 in Cleveland this season. ... Bobcats center Brendan Haywood (left foot stress fracture), power forward Josh McRoberts (left ankle sprain), and small forward Jeffery Taylor (right Achilles rupture) remain out. ... The Cavaliers played without shooting guard C.J. Miles (left ankle sprain), rookie power forward Anthony Bennett (left patellar strain), and rookie shooting guard Carrick Felix (left patellar stress fracture).
