Three Things We Saw

  1. After a promising start to the game, the Bobcats played worse and worse as the contest progressed – a 14-12 lead eventually being a 30-point loss
  2. Tyrus Thomas played just 4 minutes. Bismack Biyombo missed the game with an injury. I continue to be puzzled by Tyrus’ playing time – he’s struggled, no doubt. But so has everyone else – and the team doesn’t owe them long term contracts.
  3. Really shoddy defense throughout. Particularly irked me when I would see a Bobcat come off their man at the three point line to bother Tim Duncan at the top of the key – pass from Duncan to open man – three points. Let Tim have the 18-footer open rather than Richard Jefferson have an open three.
