January 15, 2012

CHARLOTTE — With Charlotte mired in a six-game losing streak, coach Paul Silas was desperate for a spark.

Silas benched veteran Boris Diaw, saying he wanted to see a different look with a smaller lineup. Diaw, who had started a franchise-record 235 straight games, had scored just three points in the last two games and had drawn criticism recently from Silas for his inconsistent play.
