NBA: Al Jefferson has helped Bobcats change losing culture


< Previous Page


Winning is no longer a nice surprise on any given night. It’s become expected. Losses are greeted in the locker room with disdain rather than acceptance.

"They’re a pesky group, a good defensive team," Wizards coach Randy Wittman said. "They’ve put themselves in a position to make some noise in the postseason."

What resonates most with Clifford is his team’s fight.

He pointed to the backs-to-the-wall victory over Washington, a game in which the Bobcats overcame an 11-point fourth quarter deficit to win.

"They say you play your best when your best is needed," Clifford said. "I really like how our guys came out and fought in the second half. ... They had us on our heels and we could have quit. We regrouped individually at halftime and we played a good second half."
