Bobcats won’t rest against the Bulls

I like the Bobcats’ approach heading into their Wednesday night game against the Chicago Bulls, who will need a win to stay ahead of the Raptors for the eighth and final playoff spot in the Eastern Conference.

The Charlotte Bobcats are now locked in as the No. 7 seed in the Eastern Conference and will have nothing tangible to play for Wednesday night against the Chicago Bulls, who will be fighting for their playoff lives.

But with so much at stake for the visiting team two nights from now in Charlotte, Larry Brown says he’ll use his regular rotation — although Gerald Wallace’s availability will be somewhat of a question mark — for reasons of integrity.

“That’s too important to both teams. We owe it to the league to do the right thing,” Brown said as his Bobcats earned their 44th victory of the season — and the first postseason berth in franchise history — by defeating the New Jersey Nets 105-95 Monday night in the final NBA game at the Meadowlands.

Kudos to Larry Brown and the Bobcats for playing this game like it means something, because it does.

Maybe they were inspired by the Lady Cats.
