Thunder lights up Bobcats

Charlotte Bobcats 95 Final

Recap | Box Score

122 Oklahoma City Thunder
Corey Maggette, SF 31 MIN | 6-12 FG | 7-8 FT | 2 REB | 3 AST | 21 PTS | -12
Corey being Corey.
Tyrus Thomas, PF 21 MIN | 2-7 FG | 2-2 FT | 6 REB | 0 AST | 6 PTS | -5
T-Time sees a little more action – still can’t shoot.
Bismack Biyombo, C 29 MIN | 3-10 FG | 0-1 FT | 8 REB | 0 AST | 6 PTS | -10
Unless that was 10 dunk attempts, probably a little too aggressive on the offensive end, Bismack.
Gerald Henderson, G 29 MIN | 3-10 FG | 1-2 FT | 4 REB | 4 AST | 7 PTS | -16
Couldn’t shoot and couldn’t slow James Harden.
D.J. Augustin, PG 29 MIN | 7-16 FG | 4-4 FT | 4 REB | 7 AST | 22 PTS | -11
Nice game from D.J.
D.J. White, PF 22 MIN | 4-7 FG | 2-2 FT | 5 REB | 0 AST | 10 PTS | -12
Nice game from Big D.J. too.
Reggie Williams, SF 17 MIN | 3-6 FG | 0-0 FT | 0 REB | 2 AST | 7 PTS | -15
Okay.
Kemba Walker, PG 22 MIN | 2-7 FG | 0-0 FT | 1 REB | 6 AST | 4 PTS | -16
C+ for the assists – F for the continued poor shooting – averaged out to a D+.
Byron Mullens, C 19 MIN | 6-8 FG | 0-0 FT | 3 REB | 0 AST | 12 PTS | -17
A fourth quarter flurry from Byron didn’t make an impact on the outcome – but still nice to see. After some decent rebounding efforts lately, would have liked to seen more than 3.

One Thing We Saw

  1. Oklahoma City is really good. The Bobcats are not. The outcome of this one was no surprise with the Bobcats flying to OKC after their Friday night game and tipping off against one of the league’s best so quickly.

  • All these airballs Kemba keeps shooting reminds me of back when Kobe used to do that, when he hadnt been in the league long. Hopefully there will be a lot more comparisons between the two, in a much more positive way, in the months and years to come. In the meantime, it would be nice if some of our guys, Kemba or anybody else, could actually shoot consistently well. Especially Hendo, he has such potential, but lately he’s just living in brick city. And poor Thomas, I know he’s had health issues, I’d like to see him overcome those and finally live up to all his potential, at least he’s still handy to have on defense.

    Speaking of defense, Mullens desperately needs to learn how to play defense at least at a college level, obviously pro-level defense is pretty far beyond him at this point, but if he could at least play defense as well as some of these college guys, that’d be better than nothing. It’s just so frustrating to watch him out there standing around watching as folks go dunk or lay it up. I know Mr. Paul Silas talked about how much easier it is to coach offense than defense, defense being much more about natural talent and offense being much more about learned technique, but surely there must be something that somebody can do for this guy, to at least make him able to stop people from going right by him every single time as if he wasn’t even there. He’s too big to be that useless on the defensive side of the ball.

    I suppose the best thing about the game was, its another step toward that #1 draft pick. Here’s hoping we finally land one!
