Game 53 Recap: Bulls 106, Bobcats 94

“You can’t leave him open. Everybody knows he can’t do anything else but shoot. When he shoots, he shoots it well. You have to respect him as a shooter. He can’t really do anything else, but if you let him sit out there and shoot he’s going to kill you.” That’s what Charlotte’s Stephen Jackson […]
