|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
- 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.
- 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.
