The Bobcats appear to suck. But they are good at one thing: sucking quickly. They’re top 10 in pace, so there’s that. They get a lot of fast break points (5th in the NBA, 3rd as a % of their total points), but the Knicks generally put the kibosh on that kind of thing (11th in pace-adjusted fast break points allowed). Also, a lot of the Bobcats’ transition baskets depend on their ability to create turnovers and get off to the races (10th in OppTmTO%), but the Knicks just don’t turn it over (still 1st by a wide margin).
