Practice, scrimmage, scrimmage, practice. It's becoming monotonous and counter productive for the Charlotte Bobcats. So Thursday night's first exhibition against the Washington Wizards can't come soon enough.
"It's time to start using games as a barometer," coach Bernie Bickerstaff said before Tuesday night's intra-squad scrimmage at the Charlotte Coliseum. "There's just so much you can get out of practice, and we've exhausted that."
Bickerstaff said the best use of the eight exhibitions is figuring out which players complement each other. For instance, he suspects center Primoz Brezec can play with any of the other big men, while Jahidi White and Brandon Hunter might be too similar to play together well.
