CHARLOTTE, N.C. —
Bobcats coach Mike Dunlap accepted responsibility for his team's recent struggles at home.
"The frustration is high," Dunlap said. "When you're in charge, and I'm in charge, that frustration has to be handled the right way."
Dunlap said that's why he doesn't show much emotion. He knows it's all about building for the future, which means developing young players.
"We're doing certain things here and unfortunately we're going to have nights like this," Dunlap said.
