The Charlotte Bobcats once again proved they are giant killers by beating the Lakers 110 – 117 last night. But they also proved that Gerald Wallace is an injury machine too and he could miss some time…again.
“The Bobcats wasted a nine-point fourth-quarter lead, missing four straight free throws down the stretch. But the real loss might be small forwardÂ Gerald Wallace, who suffered a rib injury on a vicious hip-check by Lakers center Andrew Bynum. Bynumâ€™s flagrant foul came as Wallace drove the lane with 2 minutes, eight seconds left in the fourth quarter. Wallace had to be helped to the locker room and didnâ€™t return. Lakers star Kobe Bryant (38 points) hit two quick baskets in the first overtime before fouling out with 39 seconds left while defending Bobcats guard Shannon Brown.”
