Bobcats go cold, lose to Miami JV squad

Miami Heat 89 Final
Recap | Box Score
79 Charlotte Bobcats
Josh McRoberts, PF 37 MIN | 4-12 FG | 0-0 FT | 11 REB | 3 AST | 1 STL | 2 BLK | 1 TO | 8 PTS | -18

Not a great defensive effort — Bosh made McRob look silly on occasion. I’ll say this a lot in this recap, but not a stellar night offensive either.

Bismack Biyombo, PF 25 MIN | 2-7 FG | 0-0 FT | 8 REB | 0 AST | 0 STL | 1 BLK | 1 TO | 4 PTS | -1

Blah. The only think that sticks out about this stat line is that he took 7 FGA.

Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, SF 38 MIN | 7-17 FG | 4-4 FT | 14 REB | 1 AST | 1 STL | 1 BLK | 1 TO | 18 PTS | -4

The one bright spot for Charlotte in this one. Not crazy efficient from the field, but extremely competent compared to his other teammates tonight. 3 of MKG’s makes were mid-range jumpers on left side of the court — his preferred portion of the floor for jump shots.

Kemba Walker, PG 41 MIN | 3-15 FG | 6-6 FT | 3 REB | 4 AST | 3 STL | 0 BLK | 2 TO | 12 PTS | -13

Sigh. Well, Kemba didn’t torch Norris Cole as I expected. Couldn’t get anything going from behind the arc or from mid-range (0-7). Also, not very successful finishing around the rim last night (2-6). A night to forget for Kemba.

Gerald Henderson, SG 37 MIN | 2-16 FG | 7-8 FT | 3 REB | 3 AST | 2 STL | 0 BLK | 4 TO | 11 PTS | -14

Pretty much everything I said about Kemba, except slightly worse. 1-7 with shots around the rim and 1-4 on mid-range — what’s to like? Nothing, and then throw 4 turnovers in the pot. Throw this one in the garbage Hendo.

Three Things We Saw

  1. The Bobcats will want to forget this game quickly and they’ll have an opportunity to do that with a game in Brooklyn slated for 7:30 tonight.
  2. 31.8% from the field is not going to get it done against anyone. Also doesn’t help when the opposition knocks down 13 3′s — probably the X-factor for Miami to win this one.
