Ewing to coach Bobcats against Knicks
Bobcats president of basketball operations Rod Higgins says in release that Clifford went to the hospital Thursday night because he was suffering from chest pains. Higgins says Clifford is "resting comfortably" in the hospital but it's too early to know when he'll return.
Patrick Ewing will serve as Charlotte's acting head coach Friday against his former team.
Ewing, the Bobcats' associate head coach, says he's "a little nervous" about coaching his first game.
Ewing says, "It's ironic that my first chance to be a head coach will be against a team I played with for 15 years."
