Bobcats President of Basketball Operations Rod Higgins released the following statement this afternoon:

While at dinner last night, Bobcats Head Coach Steve Clifford suffered chest pains. He went to the hospital and was later admitted. After testing this morning, doctors concluded that a procedure was necessary to place two stents in his heart. He is resting comfortably and is expected to re-join the team soon. Associate Head Coach Patrick Ewing will serve as the acting head coach for tonight’s game vs. New York.

Hope Clifford makes a steady recovery, but also this is Ewing's time to shine as well.

Patrick Ewing coaching against the Knicks.. how ironic.


"Bryant had come to rage against the idea that Howard's clownish disposition could overtake the locker room, the Lakers' culture, and had warned Howard that he would never, ever let it happen."
