A loss to end the preseason

Dallas Mavericks 99 Final
Recap | Box Score
82 Charlotte Bobcats
Bismack Biyombo, PF 29 min, 8 pts, 7 reb, 1 ast, 1 stl, 0 blk, 3-5 FG, 0-0 3FG, 2-3 FT

Nice work from Bismack – nothing spectacular, but solid.

Byron Mullens, C 36 min, 16 pts, 19 reb, 2 ast, 2 stl, 1 blk, 8-25 FG, 0-4 3FG, 0-0 FT

I thought it was a typo, or a data error – but, nope, Byron Mullens, Mr. 7 Feet of Smooth, had 19 rebounds. He also had 17 missed field goal attempts. But, hey, 19 rebounds!

Ramon Sessions, PG 25 min, 16 pts, 1 reb, 4 ast, 2 stl, 0 blk, 3-8 FG, 2-2 3FG, 8-8 FT

The Bobcats are going to be dealing with a PG controversy throughout the season, if Ramon continues to play as well as he has in the preseason.

Kemba Walker, PG 31 min, 6 pts, 4 reb, 2 ast, 2 stl, 0 blk, 3-17 FG, 0-3 3FG, 0-0 FT

Unlike Byron, Kemba did not have an amazing performance in some other category to offset his 14 misses (to 3 makes).

Gerald Henderson, SG 36 min, 17 pts, 7 reb, 3 ast, 3 stl, 1 blk, 8-20 FG, 1-2 3FG, 0-0 FT

Not good enough from the starting SG – 17 points on 20 attempts. The 7 rebounds are nice (but there were a lot to go around on a night with both teams missing).

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, SF 26 min, 7 pts, 10 reb, 1 ast, 2 stl, 0 blk, 0-5 FG, 0-0 3FG, 7-8 FT

Nice offensive aggressiveness and rebounding – not often you see 7 points with no made field goals.

Ben Gordon, SG 16 min, 6 pts, 0 reb, 1 ast, 0 stl, 0 blk, 2-5 FG, 2-2 3FG, 0-0 FT

Shoot more, Ben. 5 attempts in 16 minutes is not enough for you, on this team.
