CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - Coach Steve Clifford says if the Charlotte Bobcats hope to avoid a first-round sweep by the Miami Heat they're going to need someone other than Al Jefferson and Kemba Walker to come through on offense.
The Heat double-teamed Jefferson after he scored 15 points in the first quarter Saturday night and hounded Walker en route to a 98-85 victory in Game 3.
Game 4 is Monday night in Charlotte.
Clifford says ''they were very aggressive sending a second defender at Al and much more aggressive with Kemba. That means there are other opportunities with other guys and we have to take advantage of that.''
While Jefferson and Walker were 12 of 20 from the field, the rest of the Bobcats shot just 33 percent in Game 3.
