NBA Playoffs 2014: Bobcats defense denies LeBron James (Video)

The Miami Heat are trying to eliminate the Charlotte Bobcats in as few games as possible and they’re getting a crack at making it a 3-0 series lead on Saturday night. But while the Heat are heavily favored to win this series, the Bobcats are not laying down and just letting themselves get walked all over.

At times, the Bobcats have looked really good and we saw that when they denied LeBron James of a bucket in Game 3.

No one is expecting much out of the Bobcats in this series but their solid play is at least laying down a confident foundation for the future.
