CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Despite the loss of center Kwame Brown via free agency, the Bobcats are cleaning up on the glass.

In two games, the undersized Bobcats have outrebounded the Bucks and the Heat by a combined margin of 124 to 79 despite not having a prototypical center.

They defeated the Bucks 96-95 in the season opener then lost to the Heat by that same score on Wednesday after leading by 16 points at one point.

The Bobcats are getting rebounding help from almost everywhere on the court, including their guards.

The Bobcats will face a stiff challenge Friday when they play the Magic's Dwight Howard.
