76ers take control in 2nd half, crush Bobcats

Philadelphia 76ers 105 Final
Recap | Box Score
80 Charlotte Bobcats
Reggie Williams, SF 29 MIN | 4-7 FG | 4-5 FT | 6 REB | 2 AST | 13 PTS | -22

Solid night replacing Maggette in the starting lineup – efficient scoring and chipped in on the boards.

Tyrus Thomas, PF 15 MIN | 3-10 FG | 0-0 FT | 0 REB | 1 AST | 6 PTS | -17

No rebounds in 15 minutes of action, but 10 shot attempts.

Bismack Biyombo, C 28 MIN | 0-3 FG | 2-4 FT | 9 REB | 1 AST | 2 PTS | -19

As many turnovers as points

Gerald Henderson, G 28 MIN | 5-10 FG | 4-4 FT | 1 REB | 4 AST | 14 PTS | -8

Like Reggie Williams, Gerald had a solid night – good scoring and chipped in with some assists.

D.J. Augustin, PG 26 MIN | 2-8 FG | 3-3 FT | 2 REB | 5 AST | 7 PTS | -21

The starters as a group were -13 on the night.

D.J. White, PF 25 MIN | 5-10 FG | 2-2 FT | 4 REB | 2 AST | 12 PTS | -6

Made some shots, grabbed a few rebounds, so outplayed Thomas tonight, but still seems better suited as a backup.

Derrick Brown, F 29 MIN | 2-5 FG | 1-3 FT | 2 REB | 1 AST | 5 PTS | -9

Relatively quiet game for Derrick Brown, not the normal energy/spark off the bench.

Kemba Walker, PG 23 MIN | 5-11 FG | 2-2 FT | 4 REB | 5 AST | 13 PTS | -7

Strong line for Kemba – was part of the lineup that kept the Bobcats in the game in the 2nd quarter, but also on the floor for the start of the 4th when it was put out of reach.

Byron Mullens, C 23 MIN | 2-8 FG | 0-0 FT | 1 REB | 2 AST | 4 PTS | -1

Out rebounded Tyrus Thomas, but 1 rebound in 23 minutes just isn’t going to cut it. Byron has been better rebounding the ball as the season has advanced but not a good night last night.

  • We’re usually horrible the game after we actually win one, and last night looked like an exception through the first half, but sadly we returned to normal in the second half, getting blown out by a team we should’ve beaten. What on planet earth was Biyombo doing shooting jumpers like Mullens, when he hasnt even learned how to consistently make layups yet? Learn to walk before you try to run Bismack. Of course everything is tougher when our star player is out sick, but Hendo did well overall, as did Kemba. Sadly, most of our starters just didnt get it done. Of course at this point in the season, any loss is a good one, as it gets us one important step closer to that #1 draft pick, but I’d really rather lose impressively than get blown out. At least we played a good half of basketball, and werent blown out right from the first quarter. Hopefully going forward we can at least continue the trend of not getting blown out in the first half, and maybe eventually the coaches will solve the mystery of why we stop playing at halftime so often.
