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."
