CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) - Michael Jordan's Bobcats are the NBA's most surprising team so far this season.
Charlotte (6-4) has won five of its past six games and is one win away from matching last year's win total.
The turnaround is impressive considering the Bobcats finished last season 7-59 and with the worst winning percentage (.106) in league history. They lost their final 23 games of the season.
But under the direction of defensive-oriented coach Mike Dunlap, they've been competitive and have developed a knack for closing games. Charlotte is 5-0 in contests decided by four points or less.
There's not much NBA experience on the roster, but Dunlap says ``the most important part is to sell your system and what you're doing with a purpose. There's nothing like wins to help that out.''
