Bobcats Quietly On Their Way to All-Time Worst NBA Record

http://aol.sportingnews.com/nba/story/2012-04-17/charlotte-bobcats-need-one-more-win-to-avoid-nba-worst-ever-record

The remaining tilts:

vs Chicago - certain loss

vs Memphis - certain loss

vs Sacramento - this is the possible win. Sac has been awful of late and they have no reason to try to win and the bobcats will be ending a long home stretch. They could win.

@ Washington -- another possible win.

@ Orlando - likely loss

vs New York - possible win. It all depends whether the Knicks have anything to play for. If they don't, they likely will rest Melo and play nothing but scrubs. If the Bobcats need the win to avoid infamy, they will be playing super hard while the Knicks could be playing basically not to get injured.

The all-time worst mark is 9-73 by the 1972-73 Sixers, though the 1999-2000 Grizzlies had only 8 wins (8-42 in a 50 game season). So, unless the Bobcats win 2 more they will share at least one NBA record for futility.
