For Morrison, no place like road

CHARLOTTE (AP) -- Adam Morrison heads to Las Vegas today to take part in the NBA's All-Star weekend festivities.

The Charlotte Bobcats forward is the second-leading rookie scorer in the league.

But he might be leading the NBA if not for those home games.

Morrison is averaging less than 11 points and shooting a little more than 33 percent in 26 games at home.

In 26 road games, he's averaging just over 14 points and shooting 41 percent.

Morrison says he prefers to play on the road because some fans in Charlotte expect the number three pick in last year's draft to "make everything."

The former Gonzaga standout says that added pressure can affect him mentally.
